John, who has worked locally for much of his career, will focus on real estate, both commercial and residential, an area of work where his local knowledge will be invaluable to the team.
He comes with a reputation for being approachable, thorough and positive in resolving the complications which are inherent in real estate transactions.
He said: “We have worked together before and developed a good rapport, so I’m delighted to be part of the team; I think it’s the right environment for me and I hope they feel the same! They have been very welcoming and I’m looking forward to the collaboration.”
