Chartered Surveyors Say Goodbye and Hello in Edinburgh

A trusted name in the residential Scottish property market, Graham + Sibbald act for all major Building Societies, Banks and Lending/Financial Institutions and are listed on all the major lenders’ panels. Their valuations, surveys and other reports are recognised and accepted by all key mortgage providers.

Their Residential Surveying team includes some of the most experienced Valuers and Surveyors in the business, including the renowned Kevin Murchie, who will be retiring from the Firm’s Edinburgh office at the end of March 2023.

Kevin is a Chartered Surveyor and Partner with over 30 years of experience in the Edinburgh residential market. He studied land economy (BLE) at Aberdeen University and started working with Graham + Sibbald in 1988. Specialising in residential valuations, Kevin has carried out a variety of surveys on a daily basis for the purpose of; home reports, mortgage valuations, EPC’s, expert witness reports and more on behalf of solicitors and estate agents.

His wealth of local knowledge and expertise has played a pivotal role in the success of Graham + Sibbald’s Edinburgh residential team over the last 30+ years. Thankfully, Kevin will continue on as a Consultant for a few years in order to assist with specific matters, gradually passing over the baton to his Senior colleagues within the team.

The Graham + Sibbald residential team have recently welcomed Calum McKenzie as a Senior Surveyor to the Edinburgh team, a strategic hire to aid in the Firm’s accelerated growth of late. Joining from Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, Calum completed a Masters in ‘Real Estate Management and Investment’ at Edinburgh Napier University, and brings more than six years’ experience in the Edinburgh residential market.

Calum commented; “This is an exciting time in the market as we see the usual rush of valuation activity following the end of the festive period and the January slump. Joining the renowned Graham + Sibbald team is a great opportunity for me to build and enhance my client base alongside the wider reputation of the Firm itself in Scotland for residential. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say I will be sad to see Kevin go at the end of March, as will so many of the Edinburgh team, our clients and colleagues across the business.”
