“Incomparable quality of service “

I would like to thank the letting agents and specifically Heather for the incomparable quality of service as well as warmth and empathy with which she managed to establish a relationship immediately. It was very reassuring for me to be able to talk to somebody in such unsettling times as those of moving home and all of that made an enormous difference to me. Thank you.

Letting client, West End branch, May 2018


Lewis, Lindsay and the West End team have been fantastic. Lewis explained the whole process, gave us great advice on the sale and organised everything we needed to get on the market. He and the video crew presented the house brilliantly in the schedule and online, and then Lindsay kept us in touch with the whole viewing and negotiating process. We're under offer after just 6 days. Definitely recommend Clyde Property - they were efficient, friendly, helpful and effective.

Absolutely delighted I choose Clyde Property, West End. From the first phoncall to signing off the service could not have been better. I dealt with Lewis who answered every question I put to him with patience and courtesy. And hats off to Julie (the young lady who did the viewings) I must say she knows her stuff sold my flat in 2 hours. I would recommend Clyde to anyone, thanks to all.
