Over the last few months, we have been shining a spotlight on our members of staff in our Getting To Know Us series to provide an insight into life at Munro & Noble. Next in our series is Fiona Williamson who is based in our Property Shop. Born and raised in Caithness, Fiona moved from Thurso to Inverness with her family in 1999 and has gained 15 years Administration and PA experience in the Financial Services Sector prior to joining Munro & Noble in February 2015. Fiona has a very keen interest in Property and has brought her professional experience from a highly regulated sector, along with a genuine enthusiasm for residential property sales, into her new role. Fiona also enjoys baking regularly and bringing various treats into work to share. Take it from us, her home baking is SCRUMPTIOUS!!

Share your most memorable day at Munro & Noble.
My very first day at Munro & Noble was unforgettable, as I never even made it to my desk. Peter Curtis, the Property Shop Manager took me with him for the day to Alligin, by Torridon and then on to the Black Isle to visit three properties with a view to placing them on the market. Peter was friendly and informative and the experience was a very valuable initiation into the property sector. Easily my best first day in a new job ever!
If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would it be and why?
I would have a massive table with all my family around, including those who are no longer with us, because you can never spend enough time with those that you love.
What is the best thing that has happened to you this year and why?
Apart from being offered my role with Munro & Noble in February, I would have to say that attending my daughter Kim's Graduation ceremony in Glasgow in July. After eight long years achieving firstly a degree in Physiology and then a degree in Physiotherapy it was a very proud moment that my husband and I had waited a long time to enjoy!
How do you like to spend your weekends?
My husband works offshore, but when he is at home we like to take our Lhasa Apso dog, Toby for walks in the surrounding countyside, then in the evening we enjoy cooking dinner then relaxing watching a movie, while sampling boutique wines.
