STRUTT & Parker has announced two new appointments to its Edinburgh office. David Law joins as director, head of Edinburgh residential, while Judy Shields joins as senior associate director.
David joins after spending more than 15 years at London agency, Foxtons, where he began his career as a negotiator in 2006. In his most recent role, he was operations director and sales manager responsible for new homes and investments in south London, advising developers on site development and sales strategy.
In his new role, David will lead on sales for prime properties across the city centre together with rural family homes in the surrounding countryside.
Judy Shields brings over eight years of industry experience and has previously worked at McEwan Fraser and Rettie & Co, with a track record across Edinburgh, the Borders, East Lothian, and West Lothian.
Kevin Maley, head of Strutt & Parker residential in Scotland, said, “David and Judy are superb additions to the Edinburgh office and will reinforce our first-class offer to clients ensuring our residential agency team continues to go from strength to strength. Edinburgh is a key office across our network, home to forestry, estates and farms, and commercial property advisors, meaning we are uniquely positioned to advise across all asset classes.”
David Law, director and head of Edinburgh residential agency at Strutt & Parker, added, “The Edinburgh market is one that’s really boomed in the past two years, with current applicant levels per property up 134% on 2020’s first quarter. Edinburgh is a city I’ve known for many years thanks to familial connections, so making the move from one capital city to another is a very a natural and welcome change.
“With interest in Edinburgh from domestic and overseas buyers at an all-time high, there is no better time to bring my experience and passion for property to this cosmopolitan hub which offers such a rich culture and amazing architecture.”
