Louisa McElroy MRICS
Louisa joined C&D Rural in 2016 where she undertakes all aspects of Commercial property work for key clients as well as land and farm valuations for secured lending, probate, accounting and tax planning.
Following an Accountancy Degree and then a Master of Economics in Property at Aberdeen University she took a Graduate Traineeship with Storeys:SSP in Edinburgh, moving later to CBRE in Glasgow where she qualified as a Chartered Surveyor (MRICS) in 2007. Latterly, Louisa was an Associate Director in CBRE’s National Valuation Advisory team where she undertook valuations across all property sectors from Stornoway to Langholm and everywhere in between. Post financial crisis Louisa had a key role in providing strategic portfolio advice to both lenders and borrowers. In 2016, Louisa decided it was time for a change of tack and sought to join the family at C&D, returning to rural work where her heart truly lies.
Louisa is originally from Dumfriesshire, with an active history in Annandale Young Farmers and during school and university holidays Louisa could often be seen droving sheep at Thornhill Auction Mart or latterly, clerking sheep sales in both Dumfries and Thornhill during lamb sale season. Nowadays, when not working, Louisa is kept busy by her three young sons who love nothing better than a trip to the Auction Mart or gathering sheep.
