Office Owner Jim Parker is exclusive to the East Neuk and St Andrews areas and at personal request.
Jim Parker is no stranger to running a successful business and being a multiple award winner.
His mantra: "It’s all about delivering an outstanding customer experience and results for your clients while continuing to look after them for the rest of their life. Making it happen, not watching it happen or wondering what the heck happened. This is a labour of love for which I am very passionate about and extremely privileged to do."
For this very reason most of Jim’s business comes from referrals of delighted clients time and time again. (see the website for testimonials)
So what’s his background?
Initially training as an Accountant in his 20’s he has an early track record of achievement by winning Fife College’s student of the year 3 times for Business & Accountancy. Following on from this he worked in many of Fife’s local manufacturing companies such as Pfaudler Balfour, Tullis Russell and ESA McIntosh which enabled him to elevate to the position of Financial Director at 29 years old. During this time in his mid 20’s Jim also got involved in property as a Landlord way before buy to let was even a phrase and within the next 15 years this allowed him to retire at 38 years old and go on to build his own Estate & Letting Agency whilst teaching his employees to deliver the same high standard of service and results.
Now in his 50’s and over 28 years in buying and selling property Jim has an outstanding track record in his field at helping everyone he is involved with to achieve what they want whether selling, renting, buying or investing. This has resulted in several high-profile awards such as the worldwide Centurion Producer Award which recognises and rewards the exceptional achievements of an Estate Agent within the world’s largest Estate Agency CENTURY 21. "To achieve CENTURION status is to earn one of the most prestigious awards of which only a small number of sales professionals in the world ever reach."
Jim is also one of the first, if not the first in Scotland to pass the Chartered Institute of Housing’s LETWELL qualification and was congratulated personally by the Minister for Housing, MSP Kevin Stewart at that time.
As well as this his team has also won Fife and Scotland’s No.1 Estate Agency in 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 voted for by his sellers and Fife’s No.1 Letting agency 13 times in conjunction with the UK’s ESTAS which is voted for by his customers.

So what does Jim do in his spare time?
Jim is a Triathlete and climbs mountains around the world to raise money for charity, and is invloved with many associations and charities throuhgotu Fife. He enjoys spending time with his family who are also involved in some of his sporting activities. (Photo show Jim on the summit of Kilimanjaro for Make a Wsih UK and Toubkal for The Craws Nest Trust)
5***** SERVICE “From start to finish, we were blown away by the services provided by Jim and his team at Fife Properties. We were advised of some minor changes prior to Jim recording a complete walkthrough video of our property. This gave our viewers a much better insight into our property and surroundings.” George Carmichael, Kirkcaldy, Junly 2023
5***** SERVICE “Working with Fife Properties was a positive experience from start to finish, beginning with Jim's initial visit to view the property when his enthusiasm together with his detailed and up-to-date knowledge of the local housing market really shone through. The advertising of the house was excellent and the video walk-through posted on social media got a huge number of hits online before the listing went live on Rightmove. This helped reach a wider audience at a time when market conditions were becoming much more difficult with interest rates and mortgage costs both sharply on the rise. There was regular communication from the team in the Cupar office and a sale was agreed within a month of the house going on the market. All in all, I can recommend Fife properties wholeheartedly.” Grant Ward, Fal;kland, July 2023

Richard Cook is no stranger to the Fife area. Originally from Leven, the local and surrounding areas are very well known to him and he has strong links with the people and communities throughout Fife.

So, what is her background?
She began her career in the late 80’s at entry level within the financial sector and after 20 years’ of demonstrating drive, determination, and an eye for client engagement, her success led to the Board Room where she had the opportunity to travel and live throughout the UK with her family. After the financial crisis in 2007/2008 she had the opportunity to take on a new challenging career.
In 2008 she found herself in Aberdeen and decided to commence a new career supporting the Oil and Gas Sector working with a Worldwide Occupational Health and Crisis Management company. Again, with the same determination to succeed, she soon found herself supporting major clients covering the North Sea and Norway. As part of a global organisation, she benefited from fantastic training and development programmes in Beijing and Singapore and soon found herself as the Worldwide Employee of the Year – winning a magical trip to Cancun Mexico.
After years of dedication to the corporate world Perrie decided in 2017 to return to Fife and settle into her hometown with her family. After selling her own home with Fife Properties in 2021, she was so impressed with the service that she soon became a valuable member of the team. She has embraced the mentorship programme with Managing Director and owner Jim Parker and has seen a speedy rise to the Sales Manager’s level after only 18 months. In her first full year in 2022 & 2023, Fife Properties received an approval rating of over 99% from their customers at the ESTAS, the UK Estate Agency Oscars.
So, what does Perrie do in her spare time?
Perrie loves to hill walk and has reached the Ben Nevis Summit. In addition, her downtime and quiet space is spending time with her family and dog “Jock” at the beach.
***** 5 STAR Recomendations
Great service for Fife Properties, they were efficient, friendly, the staff they used to take photos and descriptions of the house were fantastic. There’s was also a problem with the first buyer but it was no problem. Perrie resolved the problem quickly and the sale went through in time for us to buy our new house.

Perrie helped me and Madaleine sell our house very quickly and for a great price. Was very happy with the service and would recommend to anyone.
Thomas Holt - Seller
Perrie was a real asset during my house sale. She answered all questions and communicated with me very well while I was in a particularly stressful situation. Perrie for the win!
Great experience and information on the selling of our property in such a great record timescale. Perrie was very friendly easy to talk to and very knowledgable in the selling of our property.
Caroline Hodge - ST Monans Seller
From start to finish Fife Properties were amazing, they kept us informed and we're very well organised and professional. Perrie was a breath of fresh air. Very informative and felt more like a friend. At she's definitely not a Steriotypical Estate Agent. Would absolutely use Perrie/Fife Properties again.
