HW Dean & Son Chartered Surveyors

HW Dean & Son is an independent full service firm of Chartered Surveyors specialising in property management, corporate real estate, commercial agency, professional services and rural land agency. We provide a broad range of property services and our boutique approach to clients allows us to be sensitive to their needs. You’ll find we become more of a partner to achieve your goals rather than simply a service provider.

Geographical Coverage

From our office in Cambridge we operate across southern England for domestic advisory services. However we have experience in Corporate Real Estate operating across Asia Pacific, Australasia, Europe, Middle East and Africa. For this reason we are able to undertake occupier solutions and portfolio management across the globe by utilising our best in class approach and far reaching contacts.

Proven Experience

The original firm of HW Dean was established in March 1949 and primarily provided rural land agency services across southern England. However today HW Dean’s grandson Anthony adds a variety of commercial services not previously available. On the commercial side we’ve advised some of the world’s largest companies and on the residential side we’ve acted for some of the country’s most prestigious families.

Personal Services

We pride ourselves in offering a personal service to our clients going beyond our prescribed scope of service to exceed expectations.


We act for a select group of clients and their interests are our priority. We provide advice that is right for our clients and not in the interest of referring work to other departments or organisations.

Our Approach

Our priority is people. If you have a single house to rent, a country estate or a commercial project in Asia you will find that we are here to do whatever it takes to get your job done. You’ll appreciate our family approach where every task is undertaken by senior staff and your Single Point Of Contact (SPOC) knows every element of your needs.

Unlike many property companies HW Dean & Son advocates a best in class approach to servicing our clients utilising preferred partners where necessary in remote markets. This best in class approach shines through when we bring in designers, space planners and project managers into initial meetings to discuss the requirement allowing our client to have the most influence possible over the project. Our attention to detail drives us to the extent of negotiating contractors down to the last penny making bottom line savings for our clients.
