Alistair graduated from the City of Glasgow College in 2020 achieving the Diploma of Higher Education in Business whilst also being awarded The Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Academic Achievement. During his time there, his passion for enterprise flourished, allowing him to win The John Mather Trust Enterprise Competition in 2019. Alistair was also awarded Enterprising Student of the Year by Bridge2Business in conjunction with the Enterprise Educator Awards in 2020.
After graduating, Alistair entered the world of business where, alongside four other directors, he formed and grew an estate agency company from scratch to over 40 agents in 2022.
However, the opportunity to join Watermans arose in May 2022, and according to Alistair, was far too exciting to turn down! He says, “I have been extremely impressed at how forward thinking the whole firm is and completely resonate with the fact they don’t want to be your typical solicitor and estate agency.”
“For fun, I play football on a Saturday morning and golf regularly.
I also have an English Bulldog, Dave! (@bigdavethebully)”
Best Thing About The Job
“I love being the total opposite to your typical estate agent. Estate agency has garnered such a poor reputation over the years, so it is brilliant seeing clients’ reactions when you provide a professional, first-class service. Working evenings, working weekends, responding promptly, genuinely caring about the people involved in the transaction – it is all about making the process as stress free and simple as possible.”
