Manager of the Roger Parry & Partners office in Oswestry, Richard was delighted to learn he had been shortlisted for the RICS Matrics Young Planning Surveyor of the Year award. He said, “Being shortlisted for this award is recognition in itself for all the hard work we do on behalf of our clients at Roger Parry & Partners. I appreciate it is my name going forward but I wouldn’t be able to have got this far if I didn’t have a fantastic team to support me in the business. This recognition is further proof that our clients are getting the best service possible when they come to Roger Parry & Partners.”
