When Rettie first started we were operating under the name of the Edinburgh and Glasgow Investment Company (a company owned by the Rettie Family), becoming Rettie in 1993. Our first office was located at 2 India Street, Edinburgh. It comprised one room upstairs and two down. From these small beginnings, the company grew steadily, building its New Homes and Lettings teams and moving across the street to No. 1 India Street and then onto 11 Wemyss Place. Key milestones included the setting up of our Farm & Estates Department in 2005 and the subsequent development of our Land and Development, Consultancy and Research teams.
The reputation of the Rettie brand has been built on the back of our successful track record delivering high quality services at the very top of the Scottish market. As we have expanded into different sectors and locations we have worked to establish ourselves as the best in our class. In each of the areas we work we deliver the best results for our customers through unrivalled market knowledge and exceptional customer service. Our core values include teamwork and dependability, but we also pride ourselves on our ambition and determination – qualities that have helped to keep us ahead of the game.
Our network of local offices means we understand the market across Scotland. Our dedicated website and affiliated portals gives us a strong national and international presence. We also have an active database of over 24,000 buyers. These channels provide us with outstanding marketing reach. We also offer the security of our well-respected name and reputation. We follow strict rules of professional conduct and, unlike many of our competitors, we are fully regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Thanks to our unrivalled local market knowledge and expertise, we manage and let a diverse range of properties on a long term, short term and festival basis, from one-bedroom city flats to large rural family homes. We also arrange student lets in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our team of letting staff are experienced in all aspects of property letting. They also know the marketplace and what tenants are looking for and will be able to help you achieve your letting goals.
