Portsmouth and Isle of Wight based Wheeler and Lai Chartered Surveyors are celebrating their fifth anniversary this week. In a male-dominated surveying industry, the company’s two female founders are “proud” to have reached the milestone.
Over the years, Wheeler and Lai Chartered Surveyors have grown into a prominent player in the commercial surveying industry across Hampshire and Isle of Wight. Through dedication to clients and pursuit of customer service excellence, the founders have successfully exceeded initial expectations.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) states that only 18% of chartered surveyors are female.
Rebecca Wheeler, Co-Founder of Wheeler and Lai, said: “We are in an incredibly male-dominated industry, so to have two women own a commercial surveying company is extremely rare. We are so proud of how far we’ve come and what we still have yet to accomplish.”
Sau-Wan Lai, Co-Founder, said: “We are so grateful to celebrate five years of our company. Supporting our customers along with our own personal development and growth, has been key to our success.”
“We love the variety of our clients, and we’d love to be known as the number one commercial surveying firm for customer service in Hampshire and Isle of Wight.”
Wheeler and Lai Chartered Surveyors have worked with individual landlords through to larger brands including Red Funnel and NHS, and hold a near perfect score of 4.9 out of 5 in Google reviews.
