Tom Grillo FRICS
Tom is a second generation chartered surveyor with over 40 years experience in estate agency and surveying. Born and raised in Surrey, he joined his father’s old firm H.B. Baverstock & Son in the historic town of Godalming, qualifying in 1967. In 1969, he became a partner in Messenger May Baverstock and, over the next two decades, handled all types of property sales, structural surveying and Fine Art auctioneering. When, in the mid-eighties, the business was sold, Tom Grillo first became Chief Executive of Messenger May Baverstock and subsequently gained invaluable experience in the group’s London-based Country House Department. Returning to his professional roots in 1989, Tom established T W Grillo – Chartered Surveyors which has now become Grillo LLP – Chartered Surveyors.
David Lewis BSc.(Hons) FRICS
David graduated in 1996 from the University of Reading with a Degree in Land Management. He joined Tom in 1997 and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor shortly afterwards, becoming a Fellow in 2015. Until 2006, David worked alongside Tom as a General Practice Surveyor carrying out Surveys and Valuations on a wide variety of properties in the area. He then spent almost two years working for a small corporate surveying practice, which saw him advising clients on property throughout South-East England and South London before he returned to Godalming to establish the Partnership in 2008.
Tom and David are assisted by a dedicated and enthusiastic team including a Qualified Property Manager and Graduate Trainee Surveyors undertaking the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Assessment of Professional Competence.
