Sporting estates specialist Andrew Macpherson has a reputation for making rare deals happen. Still, one client followed the CKD founder’s advice with caution: ‘If the grouse come back, I’ve got a great deal; if they don’t, I’ve brought a pup.’
He need not have worried: three seasons later, ‘the first day yielded over 250 brace’.
Although grouse moors and agricultural estates are rare, Macpherson never allows clients to compromise on the quality of a purchase.
‘That only comes with considerable experience,’ another testimonial reads. ‘While we were keen, the more he got to know us, the more he encouraged us to exercise caution and, ultimately, restraint.’
Macpherson is often lauded for his lateral thinking and loyalty to clients, as he personally ‘abhors’ conflicts of interests in the marketplace. Acting mostly on repeat business and referrals, he’s known as a ‘master dealer’ by peers, with expertise in 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,’ he says.
