The legacy continues: Niels Christensen and nephew, Arthur (Christensen) Gallop surveying together. Niels, a third generation Land Surveyor, is happy to be passing on his expertise and knowledge to his nephew.  Arthur began surveying in South Carolina in 2009 and has been with our company since October 2012.

We welcome the opportunity to match or beat a competitor's price, giving you the freedom to pick the surveyor of your choice on the basis of quality of service rather than on price alone.
