An amazing job
Clyde Property have done an amazing job with the marketing and selling of my property. From the very first viewing to conclusion of missives, Clyde’s team were extremely professional and kept me informed every step of the way.
If you are thinking of selling your house, Clyde is definitely the company to go with. Their marketing package is excellent and their team is an absolute pleasure to deal with.
"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.
