Metta Stockman


Angela Wallace, our Centre and Operations Manager at TSPC, brings over 25 years of experience in the housing industry. Starting as a part-time front office assistant, Angela has significantly contributed to the property sector’s evolution.

In this article, Angela shares her journey in the property market and personal insights into her life.


How long have you been working in the property industry?

I’ve dedicated over 25 years to the property industry, starting as a part-time front office assistant. Advancing into senior management roles was challenging for women back then, and I’m proud of my progress. The landscape has evolved significantly, and there are now greater opportunities for women in leadership roles.


TSPC’s motto for 2024 is ‘MORE’. What do you offer buyers and sellers that is different from competitors?

Our 2024 motto, ‘MORE,’ reflects our commitment to enhanced services for buyers and sellers. As a property portal with solicitor-based members regulated by the Law Society of Scotland, we streamline the process of sale or purchase, ensuring regulations are followed. We offer the largest selection of local properties, providing more choice, local knowledge, and expertise.


What does 2024 look like for the property market?

In 2024, the property market is robust, buoyed by decreasing interest rates. With an anticipated general election, we expect government concessions, like reductions in Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT), to sway voters. ‘Proof of rent’ mortgage deals are supporting first-time buyers, easing their market entry.


What’s your dream home?

I’m lucky to live in my dream home now—a cottage in a small village that I bought and transformed five years ago, including building a bar in the garden during lockdown.


What would you do if you won £10 million?

If I won £10 million, I’d first secure a trusted wealth manager. Ensuring my large family’s financial stability would be a priority. I’d also establish a charity to support causes close to my heart and indulge in travelling the world.


If you could do any other job for a day, what would it be and why?

I’d be a product inventor. I regularly invent things, even creating catchy names and marketing campaigns, only to find out they already exist or aren’t viable. One day, though, my creativity will pay off—even if it doesn’t make me millions.


First three songs on your Spotify playlist?

  • “Better Get to Livin’” – Dolly Parton
  • “Turn Me On” – Norah Jones
  • “Moon and Back” – Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson

What or who inspires you?

I’m inspired by nature, music, cooking, people, and random acts of kindness.


What’s your dream holiday destination?

The Scottish Highlands (minus the midges). I love the scenery, tranquillity, and fantastic walks.


What makes you happy?

My family and friends bring me joy, especially my grandchildren. I love DIY projects and am skilled at tiling, floor fitting, and decorating. While most women carry lipstick or perfume in their bags, I carry a screwdriver or tape measure.


Most embarrassing moment?

During a by-election, David Cameron, then Prime Minister, visited my office to discuss property and business. Despite the excitement and TV coverage, my airtime on the news was just three seconds, nodding and saying, “oh yes.” My family greeted me with “oh yes” in slow motion, making me the butt of jokes, but I found it very funny.


What’s the best advice you’ve ever received and who did it come from?

My mother always told me, “This too will pass.” Whether at your lowest or highest, time helps you heal or reminds you not to take things for granted. Time moves on, and everything passes.


If you could give advice to your younger self, what would it be?

Always put family above all else. Don’t let others’ opinions of you be your problem. Act with kindness and be non-judgmental. Let hurt heal and learn from it. Make every day count.


What do you hope to achieve in 2024?

This year, I hope to achieve the Board’s goals for TSPC, embrace new challenges, take on another personal development course, and spend quality time with family and friends. I also hope to contribute positively to my village as a community council member.
