Commercial property specialists launch real estate investment and development advisory firm

FOUR Scottish commercial property advisors have launched a new real estate investment and development advisory firm called Lismore.

The business will be jointly owned by directors Simon Cusiter, Colin Finlayson, Chris Macfarlane and Richard Mackie, who have all operated in senior positions within the investment and development market in Scotland.

Described as being founded in response to market demand for a ‘personal and high quality’ approach, Lismore’s services will cover sales and acquisitions, development fundings and joint ventures.

Colin Finlayson said, “We strongly believe there is a real gap in Scotland for an alternative niche advisor that thinks differently and is completely focused on providing a high quality and bespoke service to clients. We bring a deep understanding of capital and occupier markets, coupled with market-leading transactional experience. We are totally geared to help clients maximise value and meet their investment objectives.”

Chris Macfarlane added, “It’s an exciting time to be starting the business and the reaction we have had from clients and the market has been fantastic and very positive. The fact that we are an established team that has worked together on many of Scotland’s top property deals for many years will allow us to hit the ground running. Our shared values, ethics and enthusiasm will ensure that we’ll provide our clients with the best possible service and advice. Being small and agile, but with decades of experience, allows us the flexibility to adapt quickly to changing market conditions and help clients understand emerging trends.”
