My family and I have been using Rettie & Co. for many years to buy, sell and let properties, and I have always found them to be extremely professional and helpful at all times. I bought a property through their Sales Department and the Lettings Department then secured me a long-term corporate let for it. The process was very straightforward and I would have no hesitation in recommending Rettie & Co. as a first port of call to anyone." Angus Burt, Landlord
I have had the best experience as a tenant with Rettie & Co. The flat was fantastic and the staff were amazing! I cannot recommend them highly enough. Stephanie Lewis, Tenant
My partner and I were looking for an estate agency to manage our property while living abroad. Ros Mills and the team at Rettie & Co. 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. Annora Bennett, Landlord
Rettie & Co. 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, Landlord
"I recently bought a two bedroom flat in the city centre which required to be refurbished throughout. Rettie & Co. 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 & Co. had marketed the flat for let and found tenants. Excellent service." Peter Young, Landlord

Edinburgh Festival Rentals

Edinburgh Festival Rentals

We let and manage a diverse range of properties during the Edinburgh Festival, from one bedroom apartments to family homes. We understand that the festival season creates a unique opportunity to generate significant income from your property through the summer months. We have developed an extensive network of repeat customers, especially amongst the production companies, who are looking to rent in Edinburgh during this time. We have two service packages, one for landlords who only require us to source guests, and the other for landlords who require a full management service.
