Estate agent takeover

Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl -

An estate agent that has op­er­ated in Ruther­glen for over 130 years has been taken over by new man­age­ment.

Mar­garet Reid and Les­ley Hurst have been re­cruited as the manag­ing direc­tors at Ma­callans: solic­i­tors/estate agents.

The busi­ness on Stonelaw Road formed in 1883 and op­er­ated from of­fices in Main Street, Ruther­glen, be­fore re­lo­cat­ing to its cur­rent of­fice in Burn­side.

Mar­garet, who was em­ployed by the partnership of Ma­callans for nine years, to­gether with her friend, Les­ley, took over at Ma­callans in Oc­to­ber last year.

Les­ley said:“I am de­lighted to have taken over the busi­ness of Ma­callans with my univer­sity friend, Mar­garet Reid, and par­tic­u­larly as the for­mer part­ners, Diane Adam and Ian Grant, have con­tin­ued with the com­pany as con­sul­tants, thus en­sur­ing con­ti­nu­ity of busi­ness for our clients. It is a plea­sure to be part of such an es­tab­lished firm in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“Hav­ing worked in Ma­callans for the last nine years I am de­lighted now to have the op­por­tu­nity of tak­ing over the busi­ness with Les­ley Hurst.

“I am very much look­ing for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to act for the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
