Helensburgh branch testimonials

Very happy with the service

I am currently selling a property through Clyde. The sale is still in progress but so far I have been very happy with the service from the Helensburgh branch. Valuation, home report, preparation of marketing material and accompanied viewings have all been handled professionally and in a timely manner. Thank you to the whole team.

"First class service all the way"

First class service all the way.

Clyde Property have done a superb job marketing and selling my property. I'm very grateful to them for their professionalism and seamless team work throughout the whole process. From the initial visit and valuation to dropping the house keys off to the solicitor after the sale, the team at Clyde Property in Helensburgh made what's traditionally known as a major life-stress event into a positive and smooth experience.

My thanks go first to Allan for the initial visit and valuation, where he was honest about the selling process, managed my expectations, as well as listening and being respectful throughout the visit. The marketing put together was excellent, particularly the video of the property which was incredibly professional and beautifully shot.

Once the sale was on, the team in the office were awesome. They kept me informed of every development, every interest, as well as updating their log page on the internet which I could go in and view at any time. Impressively, they seem to work together on a sixth-sense basis. If I spoke to one member of the team and then another later that day, they all seemed to know exactly what was going on with each development, knew what questions I wanted answering, and always got back to me when they said they would. Jane, Gemma, and Marion: thank you for the impromptu counselling sessions when it all got too much, and thank you also for administering the concise and accurate communications between me and the potential buyers.

And a big thank you to Seona for getting the house sold at closing, and for your depth of knowledge and expertise in this area. The can-do attitude you display is mirrored in the other staff members, and is much appreciated.

House selling or buying isn't what you'd call a fun process, but Clyde Property managed to make this experience a positive one. I would most definitely recommend using them for buying or selling.

"very impressed"

We experienced Clyde through selling our own house, and also as it turned out through the purchase of our new home. We were very impressed with the experience and helpfulness of the staff and the excellent communications keeping us updated and giving us guidance when required. This made the whole process run very smoothly for us and we are very grateful to Clyde for their assistance.

“Helpful and kind”

From the beginning to the end of the process of selling my house, every member of staff has been incredibly helpful and kind. Clyde came highly recommend to me by a friend who is also a client. Her recommendation was not wrong. I am now about to rent in Helensburgh before buying a new property and I wouldn't think of using any other agency, so helpful are all the staff in Helensburgh. A very grateful thanks to them all I would recommend them to anyone.

“I found the service was excellent”

We looked at other Estate Agents in Helensburgh but it was a friend who recommended Clyde Property that convinced us to use them in selling our house. My wife and I found the service was excellent throughout the process. Not only were the staff professional but they were always understanding, courteous at all times and always seemed to be able to solve problems easily and quickly. The marketing was widespread and our house was presented in a wonderful way. So much so that the sale was achieved within 1 month. We also asked the prospective buyers what they thought of Clyde and all were very complimentary. I have already recommended Clyde to other prospective 'movers'.

“There are no words to describe the absolute excellence of Clyde Property! “

There are no words to describe the absolute excellence of Clyde Property! We needed a property to rent urgently and Clyde Property in Helensburgh worked a miracle to help us in our venture. Their professionalism and superb customer service is outstanding! We would like to especially thank Eilidh Howell for all her patience and help that she provided us with at what could have been an extremely stressful time. We can’t recommend using Clyde Property highly enough.
