About us

Our Journey So Far ...

Although aspects of the business date back as earlier than the 1980’s, it was in 1997 that Aitchison Raffety was formed when a number of individual firms came together based between the Midlands and London.

In October 2021 the employee buyout created a common goal: to create a company that would be different from any other business out there. We wanted a business where every employee could feel a sense of ownership, where their hard work and dedication would directly contribute to our success.

Our employees are the heart and soul of our company, and we believe that empowering them to make decisions is key to our success. How they work with our clients and how they collaborate really matters.

Why we are Employee Owned…

As an employee-owned business, we are committed to providing our employees with career development, benefits, and a secure working environment. We strive to create a workplace where our employees can grow, learn, and thrive.

Our commitment to our employees is just one of the reasons why we are a successful business. We believe that when our employees are happy, motivated, and engaged, we achieve the highest levels of performance, and our business thrives.

We are proud of our employee-owned business and the unique culture that we are building. We are dedicated to creating a business that is sustainable, ethical, and values-driven too. We are always looking for ways to improve and grow, and we believe that our employees are the key to our success.

As an Investor in People (Silver) we continue to realise the potential in colleagues through effective and constant training programmes.


  • “We have used Aitchison Raffety for over 15 years, from selling buildings, arranging new leases, negotiating lease extensions, end of lease dilapidations and business rate reductions – to even advising on refurbs needed. Their advice and professionalism has been excellent. Their ability to see through and smooth over a transaction – that at times may seem like it will fall apart – is one thing that stands them out from the crowd and they are the all round package for commercial property.”

  • “The Healthcare team at Aitchison Raffety has been important advisors to our business on our portfolio of surgery rent reviews throughout the South East over the last five years. Thorough and tenacious in their approach, with very good knowledge of the evidence driving rental growth, combining to create some good results for us.”

  • “Aitchison Raffety did a superb job and negotiated an extended lease incorporating all parts of the property on a full repairing basis at a significantly increased rent and oversaw the work.  I would recommend their services to anyone.”

  • ‘’I would highly recommend Aitchison Raffety. They are a pleasure to work with and are highly professional. They continually provide high standard valuation reports which are easy to understand and navigate.

Reports are produced within quick turnaround times and they are a fantastic team to work with across the country.”
