Testimonials

We are delighted with the outcome of this initiative. Rettie & Co brought us the investment proposal, backed by detailed analysis and research. Their team has delivered on the project on time and on budget. The exceptional demand for the homes that have been built underpins the viability of this type of collaborative development, which is delivering precisely the long-term yields our institutional investors are looking to achieve, as well as developing the available site at Western Harbour to the benefit of the local community.
