Shona Ferguson, who was born and brought up in Morpeth, has joined the Strutt & Parker estate agency team in the Northumberland town.
She will specialise in the sale of town centre assets.
Having worked in multiple central London offices for a leading and well-established agency, she is looking forward to helping the team build on their current market share and focus further on the ever-developing Morpeth town centre market.
Shona said: “I am delighted to have taken on this new role at Strutt & Parker in Morpeth, which has enabled me to return back to my roots.
“Having worked in London for a high-end agency, I have admired the firm for its longevity and integrity – selling some of the best properties in the country and at the forefront of the market.”
The Morpeth office has been operating for about 20 years, first from Newgate Street and now in Oldgate.
