Thank you for the flats you have arranged viewings for me, I really value Rettie’s customer service which has been fantastic over the last few months.
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!
â€œFrom 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
M R Morris (Netherton of Glenboig Farm, Fintry)
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.

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.
