ALAN'S BACKGROUND...Alan hasn't always been an estate agent. He spent over 20 years as a police officer working all over the West of Scotland. As you could well imagine, he's seen it all and been exposed to things he would have never come across otherwise!! This life experience has made Alan a more rounded, empathetic person with a strong moral compass coupled with outstanding leadership, communication and negotiation skills. And with his detective training you can be sure that Alan will leave no stone unturned when it comes to marketing your property to its full potential!Although there was so much variety in the Police Force, Alan always had the feeling that he was born to lead, not to follow. Having had some less than desirable experiences buying and selling numerous homes and investment properties, the penny dropped...he knew what he wanted to do and had the experience and drive to go out and do it. Having never felt so passionate and determined about anything before, County Homes - Ayrshire's Premier Estate Agency was born!FORMALLY QUALIFIED PROPERTY PROFESSIONAL...Noting that the vast majority of estate agents have no formal qualifications, Alan retrained gaining his NFoPP SCQF Level 6 Technical Award in the Sale of Residential Property - Scotland. This industry recognised qualification gained him vast amounts of knowledge in the key areas related to residential sales and also membership of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). In addition, Alan is also an A grade student, having attained the Diploma of Real Estate from the renowned International Career Institute.
