Sara Dudgeon joins JLL following four years working in the Scottish commercial property market as a senior surveyor at CuthbertWhite. She specialised in landlord and tenant representation and was involved with many lettings, disposals and acquisitions for developers and occupiers.
In her new role, Sara will join the market leading team, working with landlord and tenants, to help them address their office needs and requirements.

But property was not Sara’s first passion. The new Associate also has experience of working at an African safari tour operator, an undergraduate degree in interior architecture and a masters degree in real estate and planning.
