CKD Galbraith has a number of local consultants focused exclusively on the West Coast and Oban area and has been expanding its presence in the area. It recently appointed another consultant, Nicky Archibald, to cover Argyll and the Isles. Nicky has lived in the Argyll region for six years, the best part of which has been spent in the property industry, helping several Oban-based firms build their property portfolios from scratch.
Alongside her consultancy role for CKD Galbraith, Nicky is a board member for BID 4 Oban and a member of the Luing Community Council, as well as planning the building of her own house. She said: “I’m delighted to be joining CKD Galbraith at this very exciting time for the property market in Argyll and working with clients at a local level in this beautiful and popular part of Scotland. The area has a wonderfully diverse mix of properties and I very much look forward to the opportunities this will bring.”
Niall Macalister-Hall who joined the firm last year to represent the area said: “The local market is demanding experienced consultants but local knowledge is imperative too for these more rural regions.”
Bell Ingram has also appointed a new estate agent, Clayton McGuiness, who will be based at the firm’s Oban office focussing on properties across the Argyll area. Mr McGuiness said: “The property market in Argyll has had a busy start to 2015 and I very much look forward to getting to grips with this role as 2015 progresses.”
