Estate agent Fine & Country has welcomed two new associate valuers.

The firm has enlisted the services of James Slack and Claire Painter.

Mr Slack, who boasts more than 15 years in sales, marketing, and public facing roles in Cumbria, will focus on the West of the county.

This includes Keswick, Cockermouth, Wigton, Workington, and all areas in between.

Ms Painter, an experienced operator joining from a Cumbrian estate agency, will cover the Scottish Borders towns of St Boswells, Galashiels, Kelso, Duns, and Berwick on the Northeast coast.

Both Mr Slack and Ms Painter are tasked with conducting valuations and sales as part of Fine & Country North Cumbria and South Scotland, which has an office based in Carlisle.
