Savills rural agency team expands in the North West and West Midlands


Richard Goodwin has joined Savills as head of rural agency in the North West and West Midlands, further strengthening its offer in the region.

Richard, who joins the firm as an associate director, studied Rural Enterprise and Land Management at Harper Adams University and brings with him a wealth of experience across the agricultural sector in Cheshire and the Midlands. Most recently, he spent over six years working for the CLA as a rural surveyor in the Midlands prior to which he worked as a rural chartered surveyor for a Cheshire based auctioneer.

He is also a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV).

Based across the Savills offices in Chester, Telford and Lichfield, Richard’s role will span the North West and West Midlands working alongside the already established team comprising Tony Morris-Eyton and Rhydian Scurlock-Jones, acting for clients in buying and selling farms and estates.

Andrew Pearce, head of farm agency at Savills in the North and Midlands, says:

“We are really pleased to welcome Richard to the team. He brings a wealth of local knowledge of the agricultural and rural property market as he comes from a farming family in the area and has worked there professionally.”

“Good quality land that is correctly priced continues to generate competition leading to some good sales. Richard’s expertise, coupled with his energy and experience will be invaluable in continuing to provide our clients with sound and considered advice.”
