“I have no hesitation in recommending them”

From first contact with the Bearsden office, Clyde Property were efficient and friendly. After meeting with Mike Bottomley, it was clear that their approach to marketing my property (with a competitively priced package including ariel footage, walk-through videoing and the use of social media) was second to none. There was great attention to detail and the marketing materials were produced promptly. Staff from the Bearsden office visited my property and following one weekend of viewings, I accepted an offer. Clyde Property understood all aspects of my experience when taking the step to market and sell my home. Clyde Property gave me confidence in the process, their staff are approachable and professional and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

“Impressed with the efficiency and quality of the service”

From the very beginning of the process we were impressed with the efficiency and quality of the service. The photos of our house were excellent and the marketing material was first class. Clyde arranged dozens of viewings in the first few days alone and the house sold in just over a week, making the whole experience stress free and straightforward. I've already recommended them to friends and colleagues!
