Fergus has been with Naylors for all but one of its 30 years, having started his career in Norwich in 1989 and then working for Storey Sons and Parker in Newcastle.

Fergus is an Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) panel chairman for the RICS, as well as a trustee of Centrewest and the Beacon Partnership, both charities based in the west of end of Newcastle with a remit to improving the quality of life for the residents. He is a former governor for his local primary school.

Fergus is an investment specialist, having previously spent a large part of his career as an office agent acting on numerous high profile developments in the North East. He acts on behalf of national funds, property companies and high net worth individuals in buying and selling property investments. Further areas of expertise include strategic asset management and joint ventures.

Fergus and the team are active in disposal of assets for clients across a range of sectors and geographies, whilst also having a strong reputation for successfully sourcing off market opportunities.

In October 2020, Fergus was appointed president of Property Agents Independent (PAI) a national membership body for the real estate industry of which Naylors Gavin Black LLP is an active member. PAI is a network of niche independent firms across the UK allowing access to detailed market information and opportunities in all parts of the country.
