About Us | RICS Accredited Chartered Surveyors with over 30 years experience

Snow Walker is an independent professional practice with extensive experience in surveying period and listed buildings. The senior surveyors are Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and offer many years’ experience. As specialists in surveying older properties we are perfectly situated in a region that includes Cambridge, Ely, Bury St Edmunds and Saffron Walden where so many ancient buildings have survived. 

Snow Walker | RICS Chartered Surveyors

Snow Walker is based in Saffron Walden, Essex, in a beautiful Grade II* listed building. The firm’s area of operation extends into the surrounding counties from the northern side of the M25 up to the Norfolk coast. In particular, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Suffolk.

Snow Walker offers a highly professional and personalised approach and endeavours to be forthright, honest and transparent in all dealings at all times. This is reflected in the fact that a very high proportion of our commissions from private clients come through direct recommendation.

He is passionate about surveys on historic buildings – which he has now been doing for over 40 years.
