Outside of the office
John is captain of a Boys Brigade company and helps to lead his local church. When time permits he also loves hillwalking (slowly) cycling (badly) and rugby (Watching. With beer.)

John qualified in 2005.

Such is John’s approach, we’ve regarded him as a long-standing member of the team for many years now and he has kindly assisted us through many transactions as we’ve grown through each phase. It’s very rare and also reassuring to have a go-to person able to deal with the full spectrum of property requirements from the simple to the complex and to do so with timeliness, reliability, dedication and care. We couldn’t recommend John more and look forward to hopefully dealing with him for many years to come
