Santander has worked with the Hamilton team for a number of years and provided bank debt for several of their property investment deals. The Hamilton team is highly respected in the marketplace and has been active over the past 5 years in particular. They have a very good network of contacts which generate much of their deal activity and have a reputation for delivering good quality deals with enviable returns for their investors.
COLIN JAMIESON, RELATIONSHIP MANAGER, REAL ESTATE FINANCE
The Right Hon. Lord Baker:
I have known the Hamilton team of Andrew Lapping and Stewart Robertson for over 10 years. During this time and at their recommendations I have made some investments with them. They have a deep knowledge of the property market, particularly in Scotland and the North of England and are good at spotting opportunities
THE RT HON. LORD BAKER OF DORKING C.H.
Many of the partners and associates at MacRoberts LLP have known and worked with the Hamilton Portfolio team for over 8 years particularly in the transactional market. We have advised and acted for them on a range of property related transactions and, at all times, we have found them to be honest, reliable and trustworthy. In our experience, they are easy to deal with, have excellent knowledge of the property industry and are able to give us instructions clearly and decisively. In our view, they clearly know their market and that expertise, along with their communication and negotiating skills, has resulted in successful completions of those transactions.
KELSEY GIBSON, PARTNER
I personally have known and worked with the Hamilton team for many years. Indeed, my business dealings with John Boyle, Andrew Lapping and Stewart Robertson go back as far as 1996 when I was a Director of Royal Bank Development Capital. Since the formation of Hamilton Portfolio, we have worked with them on a number of projects, some small, some medium and, more recently, very substantial. We find the Hamilton team capable and reliable and we work exceptionally well with them as co-investors. Their communication skills are particularly adept which enables us to make well informed decisions quickly which greatly assists our investment strategy implementation.
STEVEN SCOTT, PARTNER
Revcap Advisors Limited:
Revcap has been involved in several commercial property investments with the team at Hamilton. We have found the team at Hamilton highly capable, competent and thoroughly innovative, being able to spot opportunities quickly and act decisively. We have been impressed with their clarity of thought and speed of execution and believe that this combination of skills has significantly contributed to the success of our joint venture. Their knowledge of our local markets is extensive and this has enabled them to highlight areas where others are perhaps slower to move. Their management of assets and reporting is also of a very high standard. We view them as trustworthy partners and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
