Bothwell branch testimonials
The attention I received through the whole process was exemplary
I have just successfully re-let a property using Clyde Property Letting in Bothwell. The attention I received through the whole process was exemplary. Jennifer gave me invaluable advice and guidance right from the start and she contacted me with regular, accurate updates.
It is encouraging that this level of service and professionalism is still available these days. I really couldn't consider using any other person for property letting.
from start to finish the whole experience was excellent
If you are in the process of buying or selling your property then look no further, Clyde Property are without a doubt one of the most professional estate agents in the business, from start to finish the whole experience was excellent. Gary and his team were proactive at all times, they kept me informed at every level of selling my property. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Clyde Bothwell. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Garry and the team for a fantastic service.
Fast, efficient and proactive
Jack Johnstone and the team were great. Fast, efficient and proactive. The sale was handled very professionally. The video was so well done and Tony was really great at listening to what I wanted, although he knows what exactly is required to help sell your house. We have used Clyde twice consecutively and both times the house sold in a week, both entirely different types and areas. I would recommend them with no hesitation.
Good job, well done. Thank you all so much.
A very professional experience by all
I have recently used Clyde Property for the sale of a property in Bothwell and have to say I am delighted in both the service and offer I received.
From initially speaking with Lynsey I was then passed to Jack who was a very polite and likeable young man I was very happy with his thoughts on the property and had no hesitation in giving Jack the property to market
The viewings and sale were all handled by Gary who kept me updated of all viewings and was delighted when Gary managed to sell the property within two weeks. A very professional experience by all at Clyde Bothwell ten out of ten!
Excellent service from first viewing until we collected the keys. Gary kept in touch throughout the whole process and updated us on any issues.
Recently purchased a property in the Dalzell Estate in Motherwell. Your sales agent, Frances, greeted us with a warm smile. She was extremely helpful at the viewing, through the sales process, and even after we got the keys.
