Sophie WalkerBSc (Hons) PgD MRICS FAAV

Rural Surveyor

I started at Hobbs Parker in July 2014, after graduating from the Royal Agricultural University with a BSc Honours in Agriculture.

From rural East Kent originally, I worked in various agriculture-related roles, including at Grain Harvesters, before moving into rural surveying. My time at Hobbs Parker originally began with a work placement in 2012. Having completed a postgraduate degree in Rural Estate and Land Management at Harper Adams University, I became a Chartered Surveyor, Registered Valuer and Fellow of the CAAV in 2017.

My workload is varied and includes valuations, landlord and tenant matters, Basic Payment Scheme and stewardship, utilities and grant schemes.

I am most at home in the countryside and outside of work, enjoy being out and about in it. I like to shoot and ski (when the opportunity arises), as well as being a bit of a petrolhead.
