Global property consultancy Knight Frank has hired Ewa Scott as an Associate in its Residential Investments team, which sits within the company’s Global Living Sectors service line.

At Knight Frank, Ewa will specialise in providing end-to-end valuations advice for Build to Rent and co-living clients. 

Led by David Shapland, Knight Frank’s Residential Investments Valuations team comprises 12 market-leading specialists who together value over £14bn of Build to Rent, co-living, single-family housing, PRS and affordable housing stock per annum across the UK.

Notable clients include institutional investors, major lenders, property companies, charities and developers.

“With over a decade of experience providing market-leading valuations advice for major co-living projects, Ewa brings a wealth of expertise to Knight Frank that will be invaluable to our clients.

“Ewa’s role as a trusted advisor to lenders, investors, and developers will significantly enhance our ability to expand our offering in this nascent but growing area of the professional rental market.”

Ewa joins Knight Frank from CBRE, where she spent 16 years in the valuation and advisory business. During this time, she specialised in providing market-leading valuations advice within the co-living and purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) sectors. Prior to CBRE, Ewa spent four years at Lambert Smith Hampton.

“Knight Frank is on a mission to build the world’s leading living sectors advisory platform. Our ambition is to expand key living sectors teams around the world by hiring exceptionally talented individuals who are trailblazers within their field and market.

“Ewa’s extensive experience within the co-living space will be invaluable to our expanding team and future growth ambitions.”

Earlier this year, Knight Frank’s Living Sectors team brokered a forward funding deal on behalf of HUB and Bridges Fund Management to City Developments Limited (CDL) to deliver Yardhouse, a 209-home co-living scheme in Wood Lane, West London.

It was a major milestone for the sector, being HUB and Bridges’ first co-living forward fund deal and CDL’s first co-living scheme in the UK.
