Astrec Solutions is owned and run by Helen Astill. After graduating from Aberdeen University with a Batchelor of Land Economy (Hons) 2.1, Helen initially qualified as a Chartered Surveyor with Jones Lang Wootton in Edinburgh before moving to London where she joined Macdonald & Company in its infancy. Helen was instrumental in growing the General Practice division over the next six years, before leaving to concentrate on her family. After a short break and having moved out of London, Helen set up Astrec Solutions. She has since grown her client base and reputation by delivering a first class service. Helen works with a range of businesses in the rural sector such as national property consultancies, individual landowners and smaller independent organisations. Candidates find her approach professional and compassionate.
