  • "I recently bought a two bedroom flat in the city centre which required to be refurbished throughout. Rettie arranged for their contractors to estimate for the works to be carried out and upon my approval, refurbished the flat to a very high standard. Within a short period, Rettie had marketed the flat for let and found tenants. Excellent service."

  • Rettie have been a fantastic agent for securing me with a great tenant and walking me through the process of renting out my property in Edinburgh. With a move overseas to manage, they have provided a 5 star service which has been hugely appreciated. Keep up the professional and personal service.

    Alice Harbison
  • My partner and I were looking for an estate agency to manage our property while living abroad. Ros Mills and the team at Rettie came highly recommended and have been amazing. They have managed everything down to the smallest detail, removing the stress of becoming landlords. We cannot express how much this has helped as moving countries is pretty stressful all on its own.

  • I wanted to highlight and express my appreciation and thanks for the exceptional service that was afforded me by members of your Edinburgh lettings team. From the moment Fraser took my initial enquiry for Oliver Cottage at Gullane, the viewing and application process, through to being handed the keys, the level of service was second to none from Fraser, Pippa, Linsey and Chloe - exemplary is the word that springs to mind. I have been a property owner and landlord myself for many years and have yet to engage with any letting agent that compares to the service I have encountered through Retties. It is some 40 plus years since I myself was last a tenant and to date I cannot fault the service I have received. I will at some point be looking to purchase a property in the North Berwick area, so hopefully the Sales team at Retties will be able to assist with that too. The lettings team have set a very high bench mark! Please pass on my sincere thanks to the above mentioned staff, who really have gone above and beyond in making, what initially seemed a bit of a daunting task, far less so.
