Josh Phillips’ success in the CAAV exams puts a new feather in G Herbert Banks' cap

In another celebration for local estate agents G Herbert Banks – following 125 years in business and 21 years of Richard Banks joining the team – employee Josh Phillips has been successful in the Central Association for Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) exams.

The two-day examinations, held annually in November, are renowned for their demanding practical, written and oral components. Josh, now a Fellow of the Central Association, shared his enthusiasm, saying: “Agricultural Valuers provide clients with professional advice and valuation expertise on a wide range of issues affecting the countryside. I now look forward to using my expertise and knowledge to benefit our existing and future clients.”

The CAAV examinations are a rigorous test of proficiency, covering a comprehensive syllabus. Conducted at seven centres across the country, the practical segments of the exams are set on farms, providing a real-world context for candidates to appraise and assess subjects while nationally set written papers and interviews with examiners as clients complete the evaluation process.

Richard Banks, Partner at G Herbert Banks, expressed his personal delight at Josh’s recent achievement: “We’re thrilled that Josh has passed his CAAV exams and is now a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers. He has worked very hard and deserves this professional qualification. With Josh now a FAAV, we have three qualified employees in this firm, together with the four chartered surveyors – which is a great feather in our cap. It will always remain our aim to maintain a strong level of qualified professionals at G Herbert Banks.”

Josh extended his gratitude to the firm’s leadership, stating: “I would also like to thank Richard, Robert, and James for their support throughout the process.” – FAAV, Graduate Surveyor.

This accomplishment marks not only a personal milestone for Josh but also underscores G Herbert Banks’ commitment to maintaining a team of highly qualified professionals dedicated to providing top-notch services.
