Kirkcaldy-born Steven Mackie graduated from Aberdeen with an honours degree in music, before changing direction and returning to Kirkcaldy to work in a Fife-based estate agency, then joining Shepherd as a graduate surveyor five years ago.

Steven has since gained his Masters in Real Estate Investment and Management at Edinburgh Napier University and become a fully qualified chartered surveyor in 2016. He has now chosen to return to Fife to pursue the next stage of his surveying career in the Kingdom.

Commenting on his move, Mackie said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent working within the Edinburgh office’s residential department where I was able to make a number of long lasting professional and social connections, but the opportunity to return to Fife was just too good to resist.

“Relocating to Dunfermline has enabled me to further develop my career in what is an extremely busy marketplace. The team has been extremely welcoming and I’m really looking forward to renewing and developing my contacts throughout the Kingdom.”

Dunfermline-office partner Paul Duncan added: “We’re delighted to have been able to lure Steven from Edinburgh to join us in Dunfermline, where he is already enhancing our residential offering to clients.

“There’s no doubt that the Queensferry Crossing has boosted interest from purchasers looking to acquire housing within the South Fife area and we have recorded a rise in the volume of Home Reports we are undertaking over recent months for a buoyant housing market throughout the Kingdom.”

Shepherd is a national surveying practice providing its clients with decades of experience and expertise together with national resource and comprehensive local market knowledge. The Dunfermline office is one of a network of 34 offices Shepherd operates throughout Scotland.
