  • Chris Hall and the Rettie Rural Team have provided me with advice on a number of property matters for many years now. Their advice has been consistently well researched, carefully considered, and appropriate and I would be happy to recommend their services to third parties.

  • Rettie were engaged by Boralex after a competitive process to market a large hill farm and ancillary properties in West Lothian. The sales particulars were well thought out and presented professionally with excellent photographs. Advice received all the way through the marketing process for what was a complicated sale was always to the point and pertinent, culminating in a successful tender and conveyance of the property.

    B Straker-Nesbit
  • If you want the best, and require a professional experienced and intelligent team, then Rettie are the best. Through what turned out to be a complicated sale in a complicated market Rettie supported, advised and calmly acted accordingly to a successful conclusion. The rest of the market should benchmark their standards on Rettie.
