Property Consultancy Rapleys Acquires Asset Management Firm Aston Rose
09 December 2022

Rapleys has brought London surveying firm Aston Rose into its business, the biggest single expansion in the property advisory’s 72-year history.

Aston Rose will retain its name and branding, but will be referred to as “Aston Rose, part of Rapleys”.


Aston Rose Staff to Move to Rapleys' London HQ


All of Aston Rose’s staff will move to Rapleys’ London office at St James’s Street in January 2023. Day-to-day structure and client teams will remain the same, but the business will report to Rapleys’ Managing Partner Justin Tuckwell and Senior Partner Robert Clarke.

In addition to its four divisions, Rapleys offers services across twelve core industries including offices, transport and infrastructure and education. Aston Rose has a core focus on commercial surveying and building consultancy, which will complement Rappels’ existing service offering.

Justin Tuckwell, Managing Partner at Rapleys, said: “Bringing in Aston Rose to the Rapleys business is in line with our strategic growth plan to offer our clients best-in-class advice, and our commitment to invest in people, infrastructure and rewards. We share similar values, and our two companies are well-positioned to work together to offer clients genuine added value advice.  

“Aston Rose is an incredibly well-respected firm with expertise across landlord asset management, advisory & building consultancy in particular. Their addition provides even greater strength and depth to our existing team of experts servicing landlords, and further increases our market-leading retail & leisure industry offer. We are delighted to have Aston Rose on board and look forward to welcoming our new colleagues into our London office in the new year. Here’s to an exciting 2023.”

John Williams, Director at Aston Rose, added: “This move is in line with our mission to continue to grow and offer our clients best-in-class and added value advice. By joining the Rapleys business, we benefit from their strategic growth plan and committed investment into people and infrastructure while our clients can access wider services from Rapleys’ broader value proposition, their wide range of industries, and regional presence across the UK. We share the same people-first, collaborative culture and mission to deliver exceptional client service. We are excited to be working together and look forward to further growth and opportunities as a combined business going forward.”
