Meet The Team
I began my property career in 1997 via my families’ property business which is predominantly based in Dundee and Fife. From collecting rents to painting to cleaning flats – no task was too small and tackled with great gusto. I raised 2 lively young chaps and when they were old enough; I felt the time was right to branch out and start my own business.
I purchased Tayforth Properties in 2011 and it was a hard slog to begin with. Having had no computer experience and being a complete technophobe I taught myself everything from scratch and would like to think I’m now a spreadsheet and laptop wizard! I am married to John Macdonald, former senior partner of RSB Macdonald solicitors which was a very prominent solicitor firm within Dundee prior to its merge with RSB Lindsay’s in 2015 and we live in Cupar, Fife.
I started my property career at 19 years old joining one of Scotland’s largest and most successful Estate Agencies and solicitor firms Thornton’s Law PLC as an estate agent, this is where I picked up my passion for working with property. It was through working at Thornton’s that my next opportunity arose to begin life in the rented sector of the property market.
At 23 years of age I joined a small starter letting agency in Dundee in 2008 and worked with both directors to build a company that became one of the biggest in Dundee. After 6 years, I felt a change was needed and this is where Tayforth Properties came in to play. I currently live in Monifieth with my fiancé Craig and our very cute and adorable King Charles Spaniel, Beau who you might also be lucky enough to meet if you pop in for a visit!
Vici and I met in 2012 through a fire in a block of flats in Dundee where we both managed properties and it was under these rather strange circumstances that a friendship flourished! Vici came on board full time in March 2014 with me at Tayforth Properties, the business has continued to grow with our extensive joint experience in the property market. We felt the market had been lacking a more personal relationship with clients and tenants, such a simple requirement yet so few agents nowadays actually offer let alone deliver on this promise. So, we tailored our Business Plan with this at the fore.
In May 2017 Vici and I entered into a partnership and purchased another letting agency with a portfolio of over 30 properties in Fife which we successfully merged with our existing and well established portfolio at Tayforth Properties throughout Dundee, Edinburgh, Angus and Fife.
A large number of our clients are overseas based and appreciate the comprehensive service we provide for them. As many of our clients are very busy individuals they appreciate our hands on service of their properties with limited interaction required from them.
We very much look forward to the future and growth of our business with you on board so please feel free to contact us to discuss your property needs.
Jill Edwards and Vici Ramsay
