Meet the Glasgow team... Malcolm Button

Meet the Glasgow team... Malcolm Button

At Aberdein Considine, our people are our greatest asset - so every week we are meeting with a different member of the team so you can get to know them better.

Today we're getting to know Malcolm, Senior Valuer at our West End office on Byres Road.

Malcolm's story

"I have been involved in the Estate Agency industry for nearly 30 years (yes I am ‘that’ vintage) and enjoy the daily challenges that are thrown at me as the market has fluctuated over the years

"It’s not always easy, however trying new tactics where required is always exciting and rewarding - when it works!

"My experience has taken me to many far flung locations dealing with all shapes, styles and sizes of properties (and vendors) all over Scotland and I suppose that’s what I enjoy most: every day is different."

1. What do you like most about working and living in Glasgow/the local area?

Glasgow is a friendly and vibrant city, with a diverse range of properties on offer to suit each individual, varying from modern city centre pads to beautifully ornate traditional West End flats.

Then you've got beautiful country roads which lead to the likes of Loch Lomond and the stunning scenery of the Trossachs, where you can visit for lunch in a cozy village pub or hike up a mountain.

2. What's your favourite property on the market?

55 Wilton Street, Kelvinside - we have sold a few properties for the chaps who have recently completed the refurbishment on this one and they just have the right idea as to what to do and, more importantly, what not to do to maximise space, light and a fantastic vibe and flow within...

3. Describe yourself in three words

Honest, hard working and accommodating

4. What did you want to grow up to be when you were little?

A drummer (and I am)

5. What do you enjoy doing outside of work? 

Playing music in various bands over the years, running (ran the Inverness marathon last year) and, most importantly, spending quality time with my truly gorgeous family.

6. What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt?

Just be yourself.

7. Tell us something nobody knows?

I’m exactly the same height as Lionel Ritchie and have photographic proof...
