How long have your worked for Rettie? I have been with Rettie since May 2009, starting in the New Homes Team before moving over to Edinburgh Residential Sales.

What is your role now? I am a Valuer which means that I am the person who will visit a house when the owner is starting to think about selling. I discuss their options and what I feel is the value of their home, and what the sales process might look like.

What do you enjoy most about your role? I get a real buzz out of someone choosing me to sell their property, and when I hear that the property has gone under offer, I feel a real sense of achievement.
