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

Very professional, friendly and efficient.

I had an excellent service and in particular a big thank you to the team headed by James Whitson whose judgement probably made a big difference to the end result. Also thank you to Laura Mathieson who dealt with day to day issues and kept me up to date.

Excellent sale of property without fuss

Andrew Smith was marvellous. No hassle: just got the job done and sorted out any issues quickly with the purchasers.

The sale of my house progressed smoothly and quickly all the way.

I actually rate Rettie 5 star. For some reason the fifth star would not register

Friendly and knowledgeable and mostly a pain-free experience.

House was sold relatively quickly and painlessly though we didn't quite get the sum we wanted. One viewing proved problematic when no one from Rettie's turned up.

Helpful, professional, straightforward

Worked hard to sell our house. Good advice, attentive, prompt responses to queries. Made life easy (well, easy as it could be under the circumstances).

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
