So you know that you aren't alone

“Smart, organized, professional and well connected. Will’s knowledge of land sales and planning law has pushed us in a direction we never knew existed. He is a skilled leader and negotiator, and excellent value for money. Unreservedly recommended!
Property Investor and Developer

“We have retained the personal services of Will Parker for the management of our estate and, during the last two years, the sale of farms and properties. Throughout his retainer Will has shown a prodigious knowledge of farming practice, environmental conservation and forestry, regulatory benefits and requirements, planning, taxation and land law. He has conducted the sales with energy and skill, keeping relations with tenants and purchasers positive and constructive throughout. We regard the sales that he has achieved as being exceptionally well managed: he is a consummate negotiator. We continue to retain Will and greatly value our ongoing relationship.”

‘We can say without hesitation that Will is not only extremely knowledgeable but also very helpful. He is professional but amiable and easily contactable. He has, quite simply, saved our skin many times – and our money – which is what we farmers like best!’
County Durham Farmer and Tourist Business Owner

‘I can’t recommend Will and the team at Merit more highly; their technical and market knowledge is excellent, their advice is extremely helpful and sound, and their level of professionalism is exemplary. If you are requiring any kind of property services, particularly with respect to conservation and restoration, Will and Merit Estates would be my first port of call every time.’
