Sheamus Machin FRICS FAAV – Chartered Surveyor & Agricultural Valuer
Sheamus has been working with farmers and landowners for the last 30 years. On leaving College he started with a small independent firm in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, and upon qualifying, came down to Exeter to take up the role of Assistant Land Agent with Devon County Council, managing the County Farms Estate. After 15 years of being a local government officer, he left the role of Principal Land Agent to set up his own business. From a completely cold start, the business has grown to provide a wide range of advice to farmers, landowners, local authorities and other statutory bodies.
Outside of work, the winter is taken up with a bit of shooting, which he tries to convince his wife is networking, and in the summer he uses the same excuse to watch Somerset play cricket. In the bits between he runs a smallholding with his wife and 2 boys, which includes a menagerie of poultry, a few pigs and some fat Hereford cows.
