Associate

Mathew's role is head of commercial agency for the South Central region, which entails its development, and growth throughout the Fisher German network. Mathew acts for a number of investment and development companies in all aspects of their commercial agency needs including sales and lettings, property appraisals, rent advice for both individuals and companies. Mathew has worked within the property sector for over 16 years starting with being the branch manager for Taylors Estate Agents in Huntingdon then moving to the commercial sector in 2006 by joining Douglas Duff Chartered Surveyors in Bedford. It was in this role that Mathew grew the commercial agency portfolio to such an extent that Robinson and Hall managed to secure his services in 2011 to replicate the same success. Having now moved to Fisher German in 2016 and working closely with Simon Patrick, commercial agency has already seen a significant boost in activity. Mathew lives in Bedford and in his spare time he enjoys spending time with his two young children. Mathew is an avid football supporter and enjoys theme parks and holidays in the sun.
