Jim graduated from University in 1993 with an Honours degree in Estate Management having conlcuded a five year, one day a week part time course interwoven with an ongoing professional career working with a sole proprietary Chartered Surveying practice. During this time Jim cemented the academic and practical sides of learning together to create solid skill sets in a wide range of property matters that still underpin his current day activities.

Jim joined Bache Treharne LLP in 2003 where he provided a tailored service to the Insolvency markets, including valuation, asset strategy and disposals; “Red Book” valuations to Banks and other lenders; and general asset management advice to the Corporate world. After an 18 month spell as Director of Valuation at Savills’ Birmigham offfice, Jim set up MGR Appraisals with two former Bache Treharne colleagues, but in February 2013, whilst on holiday in Western Cape, South Africa, he decided to branch out on his own and chose the name of a local South African town – Paarl – to become the identity of his new company.
