Debbie Walker, Newcastle Upon Tyne

I would unhesitatingly recommend Rettie Newcastle to anyone wishing to sell their home. Highly professional service and a speedy sale ensued with great buyers.

Courteous, committed and caring.

I felt no pressure to get on the market but when I decided to it was all made very easy.

Many thanks to the Newcastle Team.

Jamie Feather, June 2018, Newcastle Upon Tyne

A thank you and well done in taking up the challenge of selling our home so quickly- you really did do yourself proud as a team. I think between you all you can achieve most things and I appreciate your candour and straight talking. I’ll let you know when you can have this next one to sell as well! So thank you and be proud of yourselves. We needed speed and you delivered when others would have been too slow for us to get the house we wanted. Good luck for the future and thanks again

Mr T & Mrs M, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Caroline and I would like to thank all of you for your very valued assistance in bringing this sale to completion today. We have been so impressed with  your approachability , professionalism and can do attitude which is very refreshing and obviously achieves great results. Hope to work with you all again in the future.


L Dodds, Newcastle Upon Tyne

We have been extremely impressed by the professionalism shown by your company. In particular, we would like to compliment Jamie for his outstanding ability to sale-match. It is still hard to believe that from a simple enquiry, a family who had no plans on moving for several more years, had bought and sold within one week.

This is my third house move in a few years because of re-locating for work. I have encountered many estate agents during this time across Scotland, from both a buyer and seller's perspective. None compare to the standards demonstrated by your company. I will have no hesitation in recommending or indeed using Rettie again in the future

Lana & Ronan (Gordon) McMillan, Glasgow West End

Thank you so much Mary for all your efforts on our behalf. Really appreciate the time you spent to complete on our house- don’t think it would have happen without you!! Will definitely recommend Retties to call.

Mr & Mrs Muse, Newcastle upon Tyne

From my very first contact with you, everyone we have dealt with has been friendly, knowledgeable and extremely efficient. We have been kept informed throughout and the advice we have received has been very welcome and spot on. The new owners are wonderfully excited by the house, so it seems fair to say that everyone is happy! Last, but not least, we are delighted with the price and we all feel that you definitely earned your fees. We will certainly be recommending Rettie to anyone we know who is looking to sell or buy property.

Thank you all once again for making a potentially stressful experience remarkably easy.

Vendor, Edinburgh

Just a short note to say thank you from the McAreavey family for helping us find a new home in Newcastle. We’re delighted with our new house and we are grateful for all the hard work that you did on our behalf.

McAreavey family, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Just following up on our conversation yesterday regarding feedback on your service. We recently completed the purchase of a property in Jesmond through Rettie and Co’s Jesmond Office. My son carried out most of the initial reconnaissance in looking for properties and during that period Mary and her staff were very helpful to him. The office informed us very quickly when the property we recently purchased came on the market and it fitted our requirements perfectly. The staff gave us support in finding local solicitors and a surveyor, both of which were very good indeed. During the sale process the Rettie staff liaised and kept us well informed of how the process was proceeding and helped negotiate an aspect of the deal which allowed for a successful sale. In conclusion I would like to thank all the staff at Rettie’s Jesmond office for their excellent handling of the sale of this property to us.

C & I Wreglesworth, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Rettie have for some years handled the letting of my flat in Glasgow, together with any issues arising from time to time relating to such letting.

 I am an experienced property lawyer, based in London as a partner in a firm of solicitors. As such I deal daily with numerous different firms of letting and sales agents across the UK. Taking that into account, I have always been highly impressed by the professional, courteous and speedy manner in which Rettie have looked after matters at my own property

Hilary Green, Glasgow Lettings

Following a formal tendering process we appointed the Rettie & Co. Development Services team as Property & Planning Advisors on the potential future disposal of the Former Royal Hospital for Sick Children and the Former Queen Mother's Maternity Hospital sites in Yorkhill, Glasgow.  We were impressed by the breadth of services and knowledge which the team brings to this project including residential, research, commerical, planning and economic analysis.

Campbell Whyte, Scottish Futures Trust

We write to thank Rettie and Co but more specifically Emma Temby for all her hard work on our behalf and that of our tenants while we were renting out our property.

We had two excellent tenants over the years in our property with no problems at all with payment or behaviour so well vetted, but more especially when we had a bad flooding incident from the apartment up and across from ours causing significant damage was when Emma's skills and attention to detail kicked in. We were kept fully informed and sympathy dispensed to both us and most importantly our tenant. With Emma's able assistance and constant follow up we were able to source the correct refurbishment builders, submit and have accepted a reasonable insurance claim and again with Emma present meet with the loss adjuster.

Deftly Emma assisted us in negotiating an early vacancy for our tenant when work was needed to be undertaken swiftly and found the tenant another rental property nearby. Emma did not abandon us either just because our property no longer supplied rental income but assisted us in achieving recompense for the loss of rent and continued to assist us in every respect to the satisfactory conclusion we have now reached today.

We commend Emma as a superb ambassador for Rettie and Co.

J & H McKenna, Edinburgh Lettings

We would like to thank you all at Rettie most cordially for your prompt and assiduous attention to this sale. We are sure that your unrelenting attention to detail was crucial  factor in such a quick and satisfactory outcome. Should we return to Edinburgh Rettie will be our first port of call.

Anton Edwards, Edinburgh Sales

Dear Maitland,

I write to thank you and your team at Rettie West End in relation to the marketing of my Aunt’s flat.I am a great believer that positive feedback is often forgotten today, and therefore I would like to commend you on the patience and professionalism you and your team displayed at all times when dealing with myself.

I would like to add that the positive experience I have enjoyed dealing with Rettie extended from the staff answering the phones to yourself and Anne who was a great credit to your organisation. Lastly it would be remiss of me not to mention your protégé Richard, who despite his comparative youth was thoroughly professional and very impressive at all times.

George Moir, West End

Hi Paula,

Thanks again for the speedy & helpful way that all at Rettie attend to requests.

Anne Wilson, West End

What can I say but Awesome! Firstly, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the team at Rettie & Co. Newton Mearns - it's not everyday you buy and sell your home. Alison and the team at Rettie were recommended to me through word of mouth and I'm delighted with the outcome. From our first conversation to handing over the keys, the process was as smooth as Royal Silk.

From John's first visit to the house, to organising the photographs, the team visiting the property to acquire an in-depth knowledge of what they were selling, to the finalised brochures and the ease of professional communication between myself and your office, to the house showings, the legal aspects and then selling the house within 6 days - pretty slick!

In closing, please relay my thanks to John and all the ladies for their attention to detail throughout. I'm most happy to be able to recommend the team at Rettie & Co. Newton Mearns. I see easily 20 different passengers daily and we talk - I will spread the "Rettie" word.

Kevin Ramsay, Newton Mearns

I wanted to thank you for handling the sale of my property.I am delighted with the service I have received. You have been thoroughly professional / knowledgeable and friendly on every contact, thank you for 'encouraging me to bite the bullet' and go to market with the property, for your confidence in the property and also your expert knowledge. You have both given me a lot of confidence at all stages of the process. I am delighted we finally chose Rettie and I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for an estate agent. I will definitely use your services again for future property sales.

Kirsty Johnstone, Edinburgh

We just wanted to say "Thank You!". The sale of a home, particularly one that has been a part of our lives for 26 years, was not the easiest thing to agree to.  We have found it a difficult process, on a personal level, but can't thank you enough for the way in which you have dealt with clients and us.  You provided a friendly, cheery and professional service and Rettie is very lucky to have you on its team. Neither of us can really believe the offer that we have received but are extremely grateful for it.

Gary O'Connor, Glasgow West End

Thank you for all your help, it has been a pleasure dealing with you and the other staff at Rettie.

Mr & Mrs Canham, Melrose

Thank you for all the work you have done on our behalf. Everything about your negotiations made things stress free and pleasant. Good luck for the future of Rettie and our very best wishes.

Mr and Mrs Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne

I would like to commend Paddy and his team for the professional and courteous way they have helped me in my search for a home in Northumberland.  Paddy in particular has been very helpful and supportive with his unbiased advice.  This is a firm of estate agents with integrity who can be trusted.  I would highly recommend them as the best firm of estate agents I have had dealings with in Northumberland.

Christine Robotham, Berwick Upon Tweed

We would like to thank all of your team for handling the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new property, we appreciated the efforts that you all put in. Firstly regarding the sale, we were very impressed with the initial advice and professionalism from Paddy, including his guidance regarding arranging a professional photographer whose photographs were superb – we felt this was additional expenditure that was well worth the cost. Amy we would also like to commend you on your negotiating skills in securing for us the price that we were willing to accept. Secondly regarding our purchase experience, we feel that Paddy did an outstanding job. He knew the history of the property and its owners and he concluded a negotiating process that was not straight forward, but with perseverance, determination and persuasive argument secured for us the deal that we wanted. All in all based on our personal experience we would certainly recommend Rettie Berwick.

Vendor, Berwick Upon Tweed

Dear Emma, thank you for all your work on my sale. Please pass on my thanks to Mary and Rob. House moving is a stressful business but now I am here it all seems worthwhile.
