Davidson & Robertson forms new strategic link with the Cally Mart

On 1st July, Caledonian Marts established a new strategic link with Davidson & Robertson – Rural Surveyors and Consultants. D&R are providing a comprehensive range of property services for ‘Cally’ clients and will have a weekly presence at the auction.

In the last 3 years Davidson & Robertson (D&R) has seen 60% growth in the number of property sales and an increasing list of active buyers. With existing clients in the Stirling region, D&R Director George Hipwell was looking to formalise strategic links with a local partner, approaching Caledonian Marts to collaborate on valuations and sales opportunities.

John Kyle, Managing Director at Caledonian Marts said “It’s an exciting collaboration and good news for our clients. Davidson & Robertson is Scotland’s oldest firm of Land Agents with a strong history of property valuations and sales.   They already operate in our area and are very proactive. We have mutual clients and can see real synergies between D&R and the Cally Mart.

“We have very loyal farming base and provide a down to earth, practical approach to business – so do D&R. We believe they have the expertise, energy and enthusiasm to provide the wider range of services our clients are looking for.”

George Hipwell, D&R Director and Branch Manager in Linlithgow said “D&R has offices across Scotland and Northern England and a growing presence in the Stirling area. Working more closely with the Cally Mart is a natural progression for both businesses and it’s a fantastic opportunity to have a Stirling base from which to support ‘Cally’ clients and to open up new opportunities in the area.

“We will be in the auction on a weekly basis with meeting room facilities on hand so clients can book private appointments through the Mart or directly with D&R. Through our existing clients, we already have connections with the Cally team, so we’re looking forward to working with them more closely.

“We will have our D&R team at the Mart on 1st August for an event, so we can meet clients, farmers and professionals in the area.”

Private appointments can be made to meet the D&R team at the Cally Mart on sale days, by contacting John Kyle or Alastair Logan at the mart on 01786 450922 or calling George Hipwell and the D&R team on 01506 811 812.
