This year, we have worked with some lovely clients across all of our branches and seen some real success stories – from quick home sales to finding foreign clients houses to rent as well as managing multiple properties for local landlords. Here are a few highlights from some of our Clyde branches across central Scotland.
Relocating to Scotland from the United States, with a very young family in tow, Jayme and Jonathan Cisco put in a lot of research into deciding who the best estate agent was to work with and who could help them find their dream home in a brand new country. Starting the property search before they had left their home in the USA was key, ensuring they had somewhere to live with their young family as soon as they arrived in Scotland. As Jayme said, “Chloe and Josh at Clyde listened to our circumstances and went the extra mile to answer every question on every property we were interested in, even looking ahead to properties that were coming up on the market, and found us a home we love that we couldn’t have found without them.”
Anna Sigurdsson – Sales client, Stirling Branch
Trying to sell her home with an online only agent, and seeing little interest in her property, Anna noticed that a Clyde Property down the street from her had sold within two weeks of going on the market. Doing a bit more research and noticing a lot of ‘sold’ Clyde property signs in her local area in Stirling, Anna made the decision to leave her online agents and see how Clyde could help sell her home. She found the process to be straight forward and professional throughout, with our agent Paul first getting in touch after normal working hours to start the ball rolling as soon as possible. Anna explains, “After arranging an appointment with agent Paul, it was instant how much passion and energy he had about the Stirling market and how he could sell my property.” Anna found the MyClyde portal very helpful to use, letting her keep up with how her property sale was progressing in her own time and was delighted when her home sold in only 12 days!
Stewart Daniels – Letting Client, Clarkston Branch
Setting out as a new landlord and with no experience in the market at all, Stewart took a recommendation from a friend and got in touch with our Clarkston branch. Having a particularly difficult property to let, he saw that Clyde could rise to the challenge, finding the right tenant and continuing to put everything in place to manage the property for him, making sure payments were up to date and carrying out regular inspections. “They’ve looked after me from day one and I’ve never been let down by the company… Whether you have one property or a group of properties, I would strongly recommend Clyde. They will look after you and take away many of the headaches that come with being a landlord.”
Lynda Irons – Sales Client, Perth Branch
Lynda knew what she was looking for in an estate agent when it came to selling her property – good opening hours and good online marketing. She found that Clyde ticked the boxes for her, knowing the local market and managing expectations on what price she could achieve compared to what had recently sold in the area. That led to a sale that was quick and painless for her, following a stream of 14 viewers to her property in just a couple of weeks. She found the MyClyde portal invaluable to help her keep track on the sale progress and aid her memory when it came to viewers and their feedback. “I could see how Clyde were actively marketing my property and the amount of effort they were putting in. It was brilliant and I found myself logging in 10 times a day – it’s an outstanding bit of technology that they offer!”
June first came to us 20 years ago as a new landlord, looking to us to look after her property, finding our friendly and supportive staff particularly important as she was new to the rental sector. “They helped me through all the processes with competence, and I really felt comfortable with them, and I’m still with them as they have grown into what they are today, an impressive leading company in the rental sector in Scotland.” June loves the fact that she gets the support she needs from our West End team, taking a lot of the responsibility away from her when it comes to managing her property- she knows they are in safe hands with Clyde. This lets her enjoy being a landlord and she can keep this hand-off approach, using the online MyClyde property to keep her in the loop, giving her access to important information on her property, 24 hours a day.
