Clarkston branch testimonials
Clyde Property provided an excellent service for the sale of our home in Newton Mearns. The marketing strategy was well conceived and supported by excellent photographs and video. The video, in particular, seemed to motivate viewers. A good offer was received and accepted within three weeks of putting the Property on the market. Throughout the process, communication with the Clyde team was exemplary.
We were very impressed by the Clarkston team, with their help we bought and sold our house with very little stress. They were very professional and friendly through out and always at the end of the phone with friendly advice. A special thanks to everyone and wishing you a happy new year.
"professional & friendly service"
This was my 1st experience of using Clyde to sell a property I had not lived in. I was an executor for a property of elderly blind lady. The staff made me feel very welcome and when I explained I was in no position to show prospective buyers round the flat, owing to my own health, this was not a problem. They arranged the home report and Stephanie kept me up to date by phone and email with all proceedings. In no time, an offer was made, above the home report price. All-in-all, Clyde provided a very professional & friendly service.
"They go above and beyond!"
