Testimonials

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
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
The team at Rettie & Co listened to our wishes carefully and gave straight forward advice on how to maximise the value of our property. They identified that finding a buyer for the principal house was the key to a sale and located a buyer on a private basis before offering the remaining land, cottages and buildings on the market in numerous lots to identify where value lay. This strategy resulted in a highly satisfactory outcome despite the complexity of a sale in multiple lots. I would happily recommend Rettie & Co to anyone considering a sale that involves land as their overall experience in the market place gives sellers a competitive advantage. Lars Foghsgaard (Spott Home Farm & Estate)
I want to say how very much I appreciated your excellent service during my purchase - you did everything possible to make the transaction as smooth and trouble-free as possible. Even when there was nothing to report because of the delay in my sale and the complications in the chain, you very kindly contacted me to see how all was progressing and gave me a great deal of support during such as stressful time. I am so grateful to you and have been singing the praises of Rettie to all my friends! Bren
“From our perspective the sales of Lots 1 and 2 have been complex but everything has gone extremely smoothly and, of course very speedily. Thanks you for your role in bringing all this to fruition and closure.” M R Morris (Netherton of Glenboig Farm, Fintry)

Estate Case Study: Stobhall Estate

"What I feared might be a protracted and stressful process has been relatively rapid and not too stressful due to Chris and his colleagues' skilful and careful planning and negotiation. I will almost miss the daily telephone calls and regular meetings but happily my disposal of Stobhall Estate is now largely complete. Chris' skills and knowledge from similar estate sales and break-ups proved hugely beneficial to the whole process." - James Strathallan

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...
