Our Founder

Emma Fursman


Graduating from Aberdeen University (LLb) and Strathclyde University (DipLP), Emma began her professional life as a solicitor. While working in property conveyancing with one of Scotland’s top law firms, she spotted a gap in the market for a residential property agency.

To equip her with the business acumen needed for a start-up, Emma studied for an MBA at University of Edinburgh. After being awarded this degree and crucial seed capital from the university’s Oppenheimer Scholarship, Dunpark was launched in 1997.

She achieved the highest score nationally in ARLA Level 6 Award in Residential Letting and Property Management and has Letwell accreditation. In recognition of her contribution to letting, Propertymark awarded her with Fellow of the Association of Residential Letting Agents. She is also a qualified Propertymark Estate Agent (NAEA).

A great believer in continual learning and leading by example, Emma encourages her team to train continually for personal and business development and strives for a healthy yet motivated culture within the company.

With particular expertise in finding properties in Edinburgh for investors and then preparing them for long term lets, Emma has helped clients worldwide. She has built up expertise in HMO licensing and appears at committee hearings. With extensive experience of residential property, Emma is on hand to guide clients in sales, letting and acquiring property.

A first rate organisation and I highly recommend Dunpark.

At Scott’s Relocation we have, over many years, worked closely with Dunpark Property. We are always more than happy with the attention they give to sourcing and providing suitable quality properties for our clients. The team, led by Emma, are professional, reliable and communicative. Attention to detail is never missed and they treat landlords, tenants and those working in the property business with care and respect.

I have been a happy client of Dunpark for more than 15 years.

This summer disaster struck with flash flooding impacting my Edinburgh flat just before new tenants moved in. ‘The Dunpark Team have done a fantastic job to a) manage the tenants so that they are now happily back in, despite all the disruptions, b) liaised with my insurance claims adjuster to ensure a rapid turnaround on all decisions and payments required and c) liaised with the relevant trades to get the flat fixed and back up and running within a remarkably short timeframe given the scale of repairs. This diligence, can do attitude and level of care are all way above the norm – that’s why I use Dunpark and so should you!

My property manager, is pro-active, very helpful and always responds quickly.

Emma and her team provide a professional and efficient service, ensuring that tenants are provided with a good standard of accommodation which meets with all compliance legislation. While providing a professional service, I’m pleased to say that Dunpark has maintained its personal touch!

Excellent, efficient service from a family run business.

The team at Dunpark always go the extra mile – in my many years of being a landlord I’ve found the service I’ve received from Dunpark to be highly professional, thorough, and up to date with legislation and standards.  Highly recommended.

With reference the services of Dunpark I cannot fault what you do.

I have used three or four rental agency’s over the years and none compare with you. I have complete peace of mind that your staff can deal with anything that comes their way. My last tenant also commented on the professional standard of your services, how quickly any problems were dealt with. I would recommend your company to anyone wishing to rent out their property giving the landlord complete peace of mind. You have a great team and have had to deal with some very difficult times recently. Good luck with the next 25 years.

Emma and the team provide a personal service.

We have been happy to be part of their family for fifteen years, utilising their skills through letting and subsequent sale.
