Rebecca reaches the 'gold standard'.
Rebecca Stafford (pictured), who hails from Ingbirchworth, near Huddersfield, has passed her Assessment of Professional Competence - making her a fully-qualified member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
This achievement comes hot on the heels of Rebecca passing her Central Association of Agricultural Valuers exams earlier this year.
The RICS qualification is recognised as the mark of property professionalism worldwide and is widely seen as the "gold standard" in the world of surveying. By passing this assessment, Rebecca is now fully qualified to provide professional advice on matters such as landlord and tenant issues, buying and selling farm land and property, valuations and property management.
Rebecca is based at the Durham office of H&H Land and Property, a firm of chartered surveyors, land agents and valuers operating across the North of England. Director David Quayle said: "This is a great achievement for Rebecca who has worked very hard over the past few years to reach her goal.
"As a qualified valuer, she can now carry out valuations and I know that she has both the practical and academic skills needed to excel in this specialist role." Rebecca, 23, grew up on the family beef and sheep farm in Ingbirchworth and graduated from Harper Adams in 2011 with a BSc (hons) degree in rural enterprise and land management. During her degree course, she completed a work placement at H&H Land and Property's Carlisle office.
