About Us

Meet the Team

Ian Kite BSC Hons MRICS


I graduated from Wolverhampton University in 1992 after completing a degree in Quantity Surveying. I never went into that industry however always stayed within the construction sector. I began working as a Stock Condition Surveyor, and enjoyed that role for many years. I joined HWM Surveyors in 2007 and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 2008.

I had the opportunity to become a Director in 2010 and have enjoyed this role ever since. I have always loved construction, architecture and the built environment, and feel lucky to able to look at so many beautiful buildings every day.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family.

Will Simpson BSC Hons MRICS RICS


I joined HWM Surveyors in 2015. I qualified with a degree in Building Surveying from Sheffield Hallam University in 2011, and became a Chartered Surveyor in 2016 after training for 5 years. I cover the North West carrying out valuations on Residential and Commercial property.

Alongside valuation work I provide Level 2 Reports and Building Surveys. I proudly became a director of the company in January 2020, and thoroughly enjoy working with the team. I have a young family, and enjoy all sports, keeping fit and travelling.

Anthony R Bryson MRICS


I trained with my father in the family general practice business in Barrow in Furness, qualifying in 1982. The practice was bought out by Prudential Property Services, following which I started with HWM (formerly Harrison, Willis and Moore) in April 1989.

I have practiced in the Furness, South Cumbria and North Lancashire area throughout my career, carrying out inspections and valuations, mostly for residential property.

I am interested in local industrial and architectural history, and a member of Cumbria Amenity Trust Mining History Society (CATMHS), Cumbrian Railways Association, and Furness Railway Trust.

I have been for many years a deputy warden at Ulverston Parish Church, and served on the PCC. I am currently on the Church building Restoration Committee.

I am also a Trustee on Ulverston Town Lands Trust, a small local charity managing various parcels of land in and around Ulverston, which includes Hoad Hill (but not the monument!)

Deborah Ferguson BSC Hons MRICS Chartered Surveyor


I have a keen interest in property and first began working life as an estate agent. Proceeding then to work for a National Firm of Chartered Surveyors undertaking Valuations and Surveys for high Street Lenders improving and developing knowledge to achieve AssocRICS in 2008.

In 2012 I graduated from Salford University with Bsc Hons in Quantity Surveying.

Joining HWM Surveyors Ltd in 2017, I have carried out Valuations, Level 2 Reports and Building Surveys across the North West region achieving MRICS status in May 2019.

Outside of property my other main interest is Latin and Ballroom dancing.

Sonya Dryden AssocRICS


As soon as I started work at HWM Surveyors I knew that surveying was the life for me. Each day is different, with new challenges and puzzles to work out and avenues to explore.

Having the opportunity to visit some fabulous houses and meet interesting people makes me feel very lucky.

When I am not pondering over dry rot, damp chimneys or crawling through roof spaces, you can find me wild swimming, walking, doing something arty or in the pub with a nice glass of wine.

I am usually the one looking up at roofs and chimneys everywhere I go because once a surveyor always a surveyor!

Fraser Mott AssocRics


I joined HWM Surveyors in early 2022 to pursue a strong interest in property.

After completing a Diploma in Residential Surveying & Valuation with Sava, this gave me the knowledge to achieve AssocRICS in 2022. I have undertaken Valuations, Level 2 Reports throughout the North West, and aim to progress deeper into the industry.

Away from my passion for property, I enjoy running, cycling and travelling.
