She was further inspired working alongside interior designer Nicky Haslam in her first ‘proper job’ and later went on to set up her own home search company, Kirmir in 1996, focusing on top end purchases in Central and West London, thus developing her passion for property, buying, selling, renovation and decorating.
With her reputation growing, Kirstie was then approached by a Scottish television production company and her working partnership with Phil Spencer began.
