Merger With Local Ayrshire Firm

Details of our expansion in Ayrshire with the amalgamation of Donalds Chartered Surveyors.

Today (Monday 28th June 2010) we announced details of our expansion in Ayrshire with the amalgamation of Donalds Chartered Surveyors.

Donalds is a diverse practice including land agency, development consultancy and cottage letting. The merger, which will take effect from 1 September this year, will result in an expansion of the range of rural and residential property services offered by the firm.

All staff at Donalds Chartered Surveyors will be retained by CKD Galbraith and will continue to serve the needs of their clients as a fully integrated part of the enlarged firm.

Residential lettings are an important part of the business of both firms, and the expanded lettings department in Ayr will manage well over 300 properties and provide a comprehensive service second to none.

Donalds has a similar ethos to ours and we strive to provide the highest quality of personal service that clients have come to expect."
