Anna Henderson and Scott Hall will assist private clients to find and purchase estates and high-end properties across Scotland. Based in CKD Galbraith's Edinburgh office, they will work closely with the firm's wider team including well respected partners, John Bound, Simon Brown, and consultant William Jackson.
Commenting on the appointment John Bound, Partner specialising in the estates market, said:
For many years we've assisted clients with finding and acquiring estates, farms and high-end properties at the best price - and often before they come to the open market.
The appointment of Anna and Scott - two highly motivated and skilled individuals to our Premium Property Buying team is an investment by CKD Galbraith in this aspect of our business which will place us well ahead of our competitors in this sector of the market and allow us to continue to provide a uniquely well-informed and high-quality service to our clients.
Anna Henderson has spent the previous 15 years as a Director of Rural Property for Savills. She brings to CKD Galbraith a wealth of experience and extensive knowledge of the sporting and premium property market.
It was CKD Galbraith's reputation as the go-to agent for Scottish estates and high end property which first attracted me to the firm. I've handled a diverse portfolio of property across Scotland but this role offers me the chance to work alongside some of the best negotiators in the country at a time when Scottish estates are globally sought after.
Scott Hall has a strong background in the leisure industry and experience of working with high-profile clients and multinational organisations on a global scale.
As well as his role in the Premium Property Buying department, he will also work closely with CKD Galbraith's Sporting Lets department to further develop the services and packages they can offer to their clients.
I'm delighted to be joining CKD Galbraith and to be working alongside such a skilled team of professionals. The prime property and estates market in Scotland is stirring again with more properties over the 1 million mark coming to market. This is a global market and we aim to provide the best possible service to those looking for quality houses and estates.
It's a very exciting time to be joining CKD Galbraith in a position where I can combine my skills and passion for the sporting industry with handling some of the country's most prestigious properties and estates.
Having handled the sale of over half of all the sporting estates sold in Scotland during 2015 - some 57,000 acres with a sales value of over 30 million - CKD Galbraith is uniquely placed to offer the best advice and expertise to clients when it comes to buying and selling sporting estates.
