Selling Homes … And a Lifestyle!

For Stephen Sales Advisor Karen McDonald, selling homes is not just a job, but a passion.

However, having worked on a number of sites throughout Perthshire, Angus and Fife during her near-20 year career with the Perth company, her current role at Chapelton, near Aberdeen, adds a new dimension.

Here, just a short commute from Scotland’s oil capital, Stephen are delighted to be involved in creating Scotland’s largest new town. For Karen, this means not only selling homes, but selling a lifestyle.

Vivomotion: Where Art Meets Science

Vivomotion Blog

Art and science – two distinct worlds, but disciplines which are increasingly overlapping.

From engaging installations and photography to musical compositions, scientific discoveries are increasingly making their way into the art world, with the boundaries less rigid than ever before. Indeed, many argue that art IS a science, as both are human attempts to understand and describe the world around us.

At Vivomotion, we firmly believe that it’s our expertise in both worlds which sets us apart, and helps our clients achieve their communication goals.

First of all, let’s take you back in time to how it all began, and why the back-story matters.

Armed with a degree in Biochemistry and a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of Dundee, our Founder and Director Dr Mhairi Towler then carried out postdoctoral work, both in San Francisco and Dundee, in varying fields such as cell biology and human physiology. During that time, Mhairi also completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and, while studying for this, recognised the importance of the visual as a cognitive tool.
