GSC Grays, the rural land and property specialists, has continued its expansion in the North of England and Scottish Borders with James Denne and Tom Robertson joining recently appointed Victoria Mitchell at the company’s Alnwick office.

Their arrival builds on GSC Grays expansion plans with the company now employing over 130 staff who operate from nine offices with a geographical spread from Nottingham to the Scottish Borders.

Managing director, GSC Grays, Guy Coggrave, said: "We are delighted to welcome Victoria, James and Tom to our team in Alnwick, particularly during this exciting and challenging phase of expansion for GSC Grays.

"What drives us at GSC Grays is our commitment to exceptional service delivered by local staff who bring energy, drive and expertise to the areas they live in. Many of our staff have strong local connections and we continue to expand our regional office network while several competitors have opted to reduce their regional presence."
