Sale achieved in a rural area

Despite the difficulty of selling in a rural market, and the fact that it took sometime to identify a serious purchaser - the service from Rettie in Edinburgh was good and I feel that given all of the challenges with the market and demands of a fairly niche property Alastair and his team achieved a fair...

Sensitive and highly professional

Very professional and helpful service given that the owner of the property died during the sale. The only small problem was when the vendors put us under very acute pressure to clear the building before they moved in on a rental basis.
This caused my wife and myself some short term difficulties... Read More

Successful sale, but stressful process

Although we are very happy with the outcome of our sale and the price obtained, we feel that our expectations were raised in terms of the marketing strategy. We were led to believe that there were lots of potential viewers whom Rettie would be able to interest in the property, prior to the full/open... Read More

I explained the background to the property that I wished to sell, In turn, Alastair and Joanna reassured me that the property was very marketable.

Over the past 15 years or so I have enjoyed a great working relationship with Chris and his colleagues. Throughout this period their advice has been honest, researched, reliable and informed. Their work ethic, professionalism and attention to detail cannot be faulted. I am pleased our relationship continues today and look forward to working together in the future. Simon Laird, Angus
Great customer focus. Solution driven. Team culture. Compared to English equivalent, far superior. Have already, and will continue to recommend. Mr & Mrs Anthony Macfarlane
Rettie sold my property quickly and at a great price. They were very professional and kept me up-to- date at all times. Mrs Nahid Akbar
Selling your home can be an anxious time and the service and support I experienced from Rettie and Co helped make the process easier. All the communication was very prompt and effective. When setbacks occurred out with Rettie's control it was reassuring to feel that Gavin and Ricardo were on my side.  Dr Sheena Scragg
The whole team at Rettie & Co were fantastic from start to finish. Particular thanks goes to Maria Ponte for securing a buyer for our property within one week and seeing it through to completion - your support was invaluable.  Miss Sophie Cade
