Our valuable team

It is our belief that the most successful teams are those that combine skills and recognise individual strengths. At Arnold & Baldwin, we are proud to have people on board who bring their character to work as well as their qualifications. We find it makes the whole process more efficient, effective and enjoyable. Our clients seem to think so too.

Joe Arnold
Managing Director

With the enthusiasm and drive to grow Arnold & Baldwin through challenging times, Joe is the company’s guiding force. A graduate of the University of the West of England in Bristol, he began his career with a multi-disciplinary surveying practice based in Croydon where he gained his extensive knowledge of the commercial and residential property markets. He went on to expand the firm’s portfolio to include a successful Acquisition Division and a Residential Development Consultancy, before heading to the West End in joining Cushman & Wakefield. Here, Joe provided consultancy advice on urban regeneration schemes across the country and negotiated the acquisition of key strategic buildings allowing him to further expand the remarkable expertise that keeps this company thriving and expanding. Passionate about delivering the highest quality products at the fairest prices possible, he has been consistently searching for new and innovative client-focused services since founding Arnold & Baldwin with Jobie in 2007.

A very proud father to 2 daughters, Joe lives in Banstead with his wife enjoying the ever-changing challenges of family life. Living and breathing property, Joe’s hobbies include finding run-down buildings and creating a wonderful environment for people to live in.

Jobie Baldwin
Partner/Chartered Surveyor

With a long and enviable career to date, Jobie brings her vast experience and perfectionist nature to the company. Initially gaining a first class honours degree from the University of Westminster, she went on to become a member of The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Starting out at BAA plc, she worked for many years at head office heading up the Property Management team at both Stansted and Gatwick airports before becoming an estate agent for a time. Later, Jobie worked for a local firm of surveyors and here she was head-hunted to Cushman and Wakefield in the West End having discovered her true passion for surveying. She founded Arnold & Baldwin with Joe in 2007 and is still very much involved in the valuation and process performance improvement areas of the company.

Living with her husband and rescue greyhound in Oxted, Jobie enjoys horseriding, rock music and motorcycling. Her passion for tennis has previously resulted in a few magical hours at Wimbledon’s Centre Court with Joe.

Rod Butcher
Consultant Surveyor

With a background in construction, Rod has a unique perspective allowing him to specialise in building inspection and valuation. Having decided on a change of direction a number of years ago, he completed the Diploma in Surveying Practise with the College of Estate Management allowing him to become a technical member of the RICS. His specialities are the more involved Building and Homebuyer Surveys where his expertise really comes into its own and he is able to utilise his acute attention to detail. Dedicated to producing the finest in-depth reports, Rod goes above and beyond with each case he is given in order to provide the highest level of customer satisfaction.

Rod lives in South Croydon with his wife and has 4 children. He works far too hard to maintain any regular hobbies, but still manages to find the time to support his beloved Chelsea.

Richard Sumner
Chartered Surveyor

As well as being a fully qualified chartered surveyor, Richard is our resident expert in leasehold and freehold enfranchisement valuations and negotiations. He has exceptional knowledge of the residential property market with a dedication that ensures he is constantly up to date with all the latest industry developments. Having initiated his career with DTZ Residential as a sales negotiator, he rapidly gained a solid foundation in valuations and residential development appraisals. Whilst at DTZ he discovered his passion for the property industry and went on to successfully obtain a masters degree in International Real Estate. Richard subsequently continued to expand his skills in commercial property surveying, having gained further experience with The Property Search Group before joining Arnold & Baldwin in 2011.

A keen sportsman, Richard enjoys playing and watching hockey, cricket, golf, tennis, skiing and fly fishing amongst other things and is a life-long Arsenal supporter.

Alistair White
Chartered Surveyor

Having grown up on a farm, Alistair is no stranger to hard work and brings this dedication to every valuation he carries out. Completing a degree in Real Estate Management at Nottingham Trent University, he then went on to join the valuation team at Christie & Co working across a wide range of sectors. Alistair gained further experience at Scanlans Consultant Surveyors in Central London specialising in valuation and LPA receivership instructions before joining Arnold & Baldwin in June 2012. His solid background in the surveying industry has provided an excellent foundation for an expertise that keeps on going from strength to strength.

A lover of sport generally, Alistair tries to partake is as many activities as his commitments allow and he is a firm Arsenal supporter. He also has a very varied interest in world cuisine and is currently particularly enamoured by Korean food.

Dan Domaingue
Chartered Surveyor

Beginning his career in the media industry, Dan lived and worked in Hong Kong where he produced a TV show following the Asian Football League, flying out to places such as Thailand and Japan to shoot the matches. Upon returning to the UK in 2005, he completed a Master’s Degree in Real Estate at Kingston University and swiftly gained employment as a Commercial Property Surveyor for a local surveying firm in Wimbledon. From here, Dan moved on to the West End where he amassed a significant amount of experience with Matthews & Goodman in commercial and high end residential valuations, rising to the positions of Senior Associate and Head of Residential Valuations. During this period of employment, he was responsible for appraisals for purely residential and mixed-use development schemes, with values in excess of £10 million. Since joining Arnold & Baldwin in May 2013, Dan has consistently demonstrated an exceptional level of conscientiousness and professionalism with every valuation he carries out.

Living in Beckenham with his wife and two young boys keeps Dan busy and thoroughly entertained, so family life allows little time for sports or hobbies.

Tiff DeVries
Client Co-ordinator

Originally from South Africa, Tiffany is pure sunshine and always has a smile for everyone she talks to. With a varied employment background, she relishes a challenge and is always first to volunteer for learning a new skill. Having been at Arnold & Baldwin since 2012, Tiffany has firmly established herself as the queen of bookings and can always find a solution to any problems that may arise. She is also a dab-hand with a spreadsheet and can present any complex data in an easily accessible and understandable way.

As a very active member of her church, Tiffany spends a lot of her free time helping with youth groups, crafting and generally being creative. An avid watcher of most sports, she’ll often be found with a racket of some sort in her hand when other commitments allow with her current game of choice being squash.

John Anderson
Chartered Surveyor

Starting out as an Economics and Social History graduate of the University of Kent, John went on to qualify as a surveyor in 1985 through Hillier Parker who are now a part of the CBRE Group. This was to be the start of a long and esteemed career within the property industry as he went on to work for (among others) Vigers, Chestertons and Hargreaves Newberry Gyngell Ltd where he gained considerable experience in commercial and residential valuations as well as investment work. Before joining Arnold & Baldwin in September 2013, John spent a number of years as an Associate Director at the RICS where he was responsible for several Professional Groups covering areas including commercial, facilities management, management consultancy and art & antiques. Whilst occupying this position, he developed the commercial agency real estate standards, The Purple Book, as well as Pub Valuation Guidance for surveyors acting as arbitrators and independent experts. This has given him an encyclopaedic knowledge of the property market which, coupled with a staggering memory for specific areas and even roads within London that could rival even the most experienced Black Cab driver’s, is truly an asset to Arnold & Baldwin.
At the weekend, John returns to his Southwold home where he lives with his wife and enjoys sailing, playing tennis and the odd game of golf.

Tom Pearson
Client Co-ordinator

Working at Arnold & Baldwin since July 2014, Tom has quickly become a valuable part of the team. Born and raised in Croydon, he has had a few admin roles in the past, but this is his first full time role and he’s meeting every challenge head-on. With a degree in Environmental Geography from the University of York, he has an exceptionally analytical mind and can turn his hand to any computer-based task with ease and efficiency. Always happy to help, Tom delivers a friendly and understanding approach to every phone call he receives.

A keen runner, Tom regularly covers impressive distances in his spare time and also enjoys watching the odd game of cricket (as long as England aren’t losing too horribly!), drawing and playing guitar.

Tracey Tompkins
Relationship manager

Impeccable customer service is at the heart of everything Tracey does. Despite having an immensely busy workload, she always makes time to speak to and advise any callers who need a bit of guidance, from uncertain first time buyers to lending institutions. She has had a long and varied career working within insurance, shipbroking and recruitment, before finding her passion in the property industry over 10 years ago. Her experience has given her a unique and insightful knowledge which allows her to demystify surveying jargon and explain even the most intricate situations to anyone. Overseeing the office as a whole, Tracey can certainly turn her hand to any task presented and can be found on a daily basis doing everything from troubleshooting IT problems to arranging industry meet-and-greets.

Mother to two daughters, Tracey can often be found covered in mud from her allotment and cooking up delicious feasts with the produce she has grown.
