Technology and quality at our hearts

Our Managing Director is a member of RICS Residential Survey & Valuation Professional Group, advising RICS on current affairs and market conditions. This provides Arnold & Baldwin with access to the latest information from other industry leaders, helping to protect your investment.

Technology is evolving rapidly in our industry. We work closely with our tech partners to ensure their offering is robust. Our surveyors collect data on iPad’s and access portals whilst in the property you are acquiring. This gives access to historical land use maps, soil conditions, planning portals, we can even tell you mobile phone coverage and internet speeds if you like! Technology is here to assist our surveyors and reduce the time taken to report to you.

In our industry many surveyors are home based. At Arnold & Baldwin we have a central office where all surveyors are encouraged to congregate to share any complicated valuations or defects found onsite. Technology enables surveyors to communicate on-site sharing any complex issues via live video feeds. Our values of being honest, approachable experts encourages the team to communicate together.

Property market surveys and updates are available from a number of sources. They are not centralised in one location though. Our monthly company wide meetings are used as a forum for discussing technical issues, industry updates and market changes. We produce a snapshot of the leading industry market updates, along with any local issues arising. This ensures our surveyors are fully aware of all matters in your area.
