Top Ten Country Specialists
Andrew Macpherson is one of the founding directors of CKD, which he launched with Jonathan Kennedy in 2000. His track record of 35 years in the market of buying and selling premium rural property across the country is formidable.
A renowned sporting estates specialist, he has extensive knowledge of the farmland market, major residential developments, break-up positions and the sale and purchase of country property.
‘I like nothing more than to head up, or be part of, a professional team effort to ensure the best result for my clients,’ says Macpherson, who is known for his ability to make rare deals a reality. Client interests are always front and centre, and the firm specialises in off-market deals, leveraging its considerable contact book and conducting deals with maximum discretion.
In one memorable moment, Macpherson’s advice in relation to a grouse moor purchase was met with initial scepticism from a client, who said of the deal: ‘If the grouse come back, I’ve got a great deal; if they don’t, I’ve bought a pup.’
Three seasons later, ‘The first day yielded over 250 brace,’ Macpherson laughs.
It’s no surprise that client satisfaction is high. ‘Never has writing such a large cheque given me so much pleasure,’ one client testimonial reads in praise of Macpherson’s skills.
