DM Hall has announced that Stuart Johnston will lead the commercial property team in its Aberdeen office.

The chartered surveying company said Stuart has re-joined the business as a partner and will head up the team’s valuation, agency and building consultancy divisions for the firm’s north group, covering Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray and the Highlands.

A native Aberdonian, Stuart has previously worked at Ryden and CBRE. He said, “Despite the property market in Aberdeen having been extremely challenging in recent years, there are continued signs of improvement in market activity and a gradual return to confidence. This will undoubtedly present opportunities for clients who can take advantage of the correction in rents and capital values that has resulted in recent years from weaker market conditions.”

Managing director Eric Curran added, “The Aberdeen office and the wider firm is very pleased to see Stuart return to DM Hall. His local market knowledge, connections and considerable experience will undoubtedly play a significant part in developing our commercial business in the north of Scotland as well as contributing positively to the wider partnership.”
