Testimonials

Wallace is all about achieving the best results for landowners. Our track record says a lot about us, but our clients say more...

“I have acted for landowners on two sites where we have introduced Wallace Land, and on both occasions our clients have been impressed with the straightforward approach and general feeling of mutuality. There is a genuine desire by Jason, and his colleagues, to complete fair agreements with the minimum of fuss, whilst remaining professional.”

Graham Bowcock,
Property Consultant,
Cheshire

“Acting for our landowner clients, we have been very impressed with the way in which Wallace have dealt with the whole process. As a company they offer a very transparent and professional service from the outset whether that is at the promotion agreement stage or the ongoing promotion of our clients’ land.”

Stephen Williamson,
Director,
Holmes Mackillop

“From the very beginning I thought that Wallace was a company that I could trust with the planning promotion of my land. Being able to easily and directly contact the owner of the business and the team dealing with my land was important to me and throughout the planning process I was involved in, and comfortable with, the decisions being made. Wallace has proved to me that they have an in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of the planning system and they have used this to deliver my planning consent. The planning strategy that Wallace put to me to consider wasn’t without its risks, but I was confident that they had done their homework. Wallace were true to their word and kept to their planning strategy. We were expecting that our planning application would be refused, and we would need to go to appeal. At every twist and turn through the appeal, Wallace and their team were able to robustly defend their position and the appeal was granted. We are now working together to market and sell the site to a housebuilder. Working with Wallace on the sale process has been a partnership approach where I have been able to look at all the bid information that Wallace has received from prospective purchasers so that we can make an informed sale decision. I would happily work with Wallace again and can recommend their expertise to anyone considering promoting their land for housing.”

Tam Clark,

Wellhead Farm, Murieston

“Actions speak louder than words. Since signing a promotion agreement with Wallace, Jason and his quality team have excelled in promoting a parcel of land on our behalf, and within 12 months the site was approved with outline planning consent.”

Christine Williams,
Landowner,
Coppice Green, Shifnal

“I have worked closely with Jason and the Wallace Team on three major sales in Scotland. I have been very impressed with the ability of the team to identify and unlock strategic sites for residential use and the effectiveness of their approach delivering planning consents. This same effective approach is transferred to the disposal process, where Jason’s background as a former MD of a volume housebuilder is obvious and this experience is applied to maximise value and control the disposal for the benefit of landowners. It is clear that Wallace and the landowners they work with are fully aligned and there is good communication at all points throughout the process. Delivery is key in the strategic land game and Wallace delivers.”

Ben Brough MRICS,
Head of Development, Scotland,
Savills

“Wallace has invested a vast amount of time effort and money into the promotion of my land, resulting in two sites being consented. Both sites have now been sold with houses coming out of the ground. I could not be happier with Wallace’s performance. The promotion process and outcomes were better than I expected.”

Alisdair Robertson,
Landowner,
Lang Loan

“My respect and trust for Jason and his team grows on every occasion I deal with them. When acting for clients, I need to be very confident that the promoter I bring to the partnership will be a winner and meet as many of my clients’ needs as possible – plus be personable, after all a strategic site can be a partnership for several years.”

Tim Lawrence,
Director,
Savills

“Wallace did a great job when it came to explaining the process in jargon-free language [to my clients]. The team are patient and considerate to the landowners’ requirements.”

Leanne Murray,
Legal Director,
DAC Beachcroft LLP

“The main benefit to working with Wallace, is that most of the time you are working with the head of the company, Jason Wallace, who makes the decisions and tells you exactly where things are and what stage they have got to.”

Kenneth Robertson,
Land Agent,
Robertson Rural

“My experience of dealing of Wallace has been a good one. It's been a transparent process: we've received feedback and we've known where we are. The client is happy and the accountant is happy.”

Richard Leslie,
Partner,
Shepherd and Wedderburn

“Jason has knowledge. He knows his markets. I am not surprised that Wallace is successful.”

Colin Whyte,
Partner,
