Clarkston branch testimonials
Excellent service from Kay and her team. They were very professional, helpful and supportive throughout the selling process. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Clarkston branch staff. I would also like to thank Greg, the Area Director for his advice in the sale of my home.
Very Professional Service
Very Professional Service from Clyde Property. My sincere thanks to Clyde Property Clarkston for assisting with selling my Mother's House in Eaglesham. All staff I encountered were extremely friendly and were thoroughly professional in all aspects of the selling process.
Friendly and efficient
Friendly and efficient. Clyde Property were very professional in helping me sell my late aunt’s property. From our first meeting until the house was put on the market, with an impressive high quality video, was only a matter of days. There was significant interest in the property, with the staff at Clyde handling all the viewings, and we were able to set a closing date just a couple of weeks later. The MyClyde website was a really useful facility for keeping me abreast of all developments, along with regular e-mails from Kay. All-in-all I was very satisfied with the service provided by the friendly staff at the Clarkston branch.
I would like to thank all the staff at Clyde Property's Clarkston office for their service in selling our house. We have been most impressed with their professionalism and knowledge of the housing market. We are happy with the speed at selling and the price achieved. Giving us our own MyClyde access to their working notes was really helpful and reassuring, as it informed us about the steps they were taking at every stage. Always cheerful and always helpful, can't praise them enough.
