Strengthening our Land & Development Team


We are delighted to announce that Sandy Gilmour MRICS will be joining Rettie & Co. as an Associate Director in the Land & Development team.  Sandy will join us from Graham & Sibbald, bringing over twenty years’ experience in the Scottish market and most recently heading up Graham & Sibbald’s National Investment + Development practice. 

Matthew Benson, Director, Development Services said, “Sandy is highly regarded across the property scene in Scotland and is a trusted adviser to a range of property companies, public sector bodies, family offices, private individuals and property funds.  It’s a great hire for us and further strengthens our market-leading Land and Development team.”

Sandy Gilmour, Associate Director, Land + Development said, “I have long admired Rettie & Co, a firm with a strong and respected brand in Scotland, across the UK and internationally.  The Development Services division, headed by Matthew Benson, is backed by an exceptional research unit led by Dr John Boyle, and I’m relishing the opportunity to work with team.”

The investment market has shifted its focus to long-term sustainable sources of income and residential property and the Build to Rent sector have become institutional assets in their own right and will continue to increase in terms of scale and share of the residential market.  Rettie has gained a predominant position in Build to Rent, advising BTR developers and investors and I look forward to supporting Matthew, John, Simon Rettie, Gillian McLees, and the rest of the team.”
