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.
