Perth branch testimonials
"Professional and friendly"
We sold our property through Clyde Property and were extremely pleased with the service.
Professional and friendly are the words which spring to mind as well as attention to detail.
There was no hint of ‘hard sell’ and throughout the sale they were always helpful and available .
We would have no hesitation in recommending them if you are thinking of selling your property.
We spoke to a few agents in Perth before settling on Clyde, I’m glad we did. The advertising package and services were far superior to anything we’d seen before. This was backed up by tireless enthusiasm from Tara and her team which ensured we secured a good sale in a difficult market.
"you fulfilled our expectations"
First of all the presentation of the house was excellent particularly the video coverage including the surrounding area as seen from the drone. We discussed our expectations when we took Clyde on to sell the house, and you fulfilled our expectations. We said that we only wanted serious potential buyers to view and that is what you provided. You achieved the price we expected.
"delighted with their service, professionalism and the level of updates"
After considering several local estate agents we decided to go with Clyde Property and were delighted with their service, professionalism and the level of updates they provided. Would certainly recommend to others.
