I recently joined the team in March of this year after many years working for various estate agents in both Scotland and England. My role as National Franchise Manager has overseen the rollout of our 45 franchises across England and Wales. Out of work I live in Ayrshire and spend my free time with my wife and three teenage children – there is always something to do in my household!
I am a business development & property valuer at National Property Auctions in Glasgow. I have been in estate agency since 1999 and have worked with some amazing people, learning from some of the best in the industry. I’m passionate about property, work hard, and enjoy using my experience to help customers on their moving journeys whether buying or selling. I advise homeowners, builders and developers with the marketing and sale of their properties, and have helped from the initial appraisal, through an effective marketing campaign, to the point of sale. I live in the south side of Glasgow with my wife and two kids. When the kids aren’t tiring me out, I enjoy being active and outdoors as much as I can!
I am the Property Finance Administrator/Bookkeeper at National Property Auctions having joined the team in January 2020. I enjoy the attention to detail required when working with financial accounts and have worked in this capacity for many years, mainly in Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides where I used to live. Out of the office, I enjoy going on holidays in the sun, concerts, walking our dog Angus, and acting as a taxi driver to my husband and son when they go to watch their favourite football team!
I look after business development at National Property Auctions and have been involved with the company for more than 6 and a half years, having previously operated a pre and post tenancy services business. My key role in the business is to create and build relationships with partner agencies – estate/letting agents, solicitors, corporate institutions, deal packagers, sourcers, etc. – to offer the speed and security of sale uniquely offered by auction as a valuable addition to their existing business. I live in East Kilbride and, outside of work, I am a keen golfer although my enthusiasm somewhat outweighs my ability! I also enjoy the occasional glass of wine – a trip to the Napa Valley wine region is high on my bucket list.
I have just recently joined the company, but I do believe people buy from people, and I am a true people person and pride myself in delivering a great customer experience. With 13 years’ experience in letting, buying and selling property, I will guide vendor’s and potential buyers through the whole process. My focus is to deliver a great customer experience from the moment they get in contact and I will be at the end of the phone to offer advice and support throughout the journey. When away from work, I enjoy spending time with the family and playing golf and football. The picture doesn’t do me justice so feel free to pop into the office and meet me as I’m hotter in person!
My role at National Property Auctions is Head of Accounts. I started with the company in 2013 as Administrator, however as the team grew so did my job. I soon became Senior Administrator and took on an extra member of staff to take over my job, allowing me to move into our Accounts department, where I have been since May 2019. I like to think I am very approachable and more than happy to help anyone or steer them in the right direction. I’m married with one daughter and a grand-daughter (even though I’m too young to be a Granny!). I enjoy going to keep fit classes in my local gym, going on holiday and probably spend the same amount of time in Benidorm as I do here! I also enjoy socialising with my friends and work colleagues, and very rarely say no to a night out!
I have been negotiating property sales since the age of 17. I possess outstanding interpersonal skills and aspire to deliver an astonishing service. My mature and articulate manner allows me to deliver concise communication. Through experience, I have learned that a good quality service will lead to repeat business which is why I always strive to exceed each clients’ expectations.
