West End branch testimonials

Highly recommend

We would highly recommend Clyde for selling your property. From start to finish they were very knowledgeable about the market in the West End and guided us through the process with professionalism, resulting in a closing date within a week.

I would recommend Clyde's West End Office with no hesitation

Clyde West End have supported me in the sale of my flat over the last few months. Lewis' advice and valuation was spot on in terms of what my property sold for (in two weeks). Preparing my flat for the market was much easier than I expected - Clyde helped with everything including redecoration, repairs, clearing and cleaning the property and follow up issues, taking a personal responsibility for getting things done in a timely way. I was impressed by the local knowledge of their viewing agent, Julie, and her passion to achieve a good sale. Every time I have contacted the office, whoever I have spoken to, they have been responsive, offered help and done what they said they would do quickly and without a fuss. Communication has consistently been faultless - a rare thing in customer service. I would recommend Clyde's West End Office with no hesitation - and I am not normally someone who bothers to fill in the feedback form!

Their service was excellent

Full marks to the Clyde team at West End branch. Their service was excellent and I found the 'MyClyde' web logs and updates to the process particularly helpful as I was selling on behalf of a relative and doing so from outside Glasgow. Being able to log on to see the viewing appointments live on their system was great. The log entries for comments left by viewers really helped to see what was happening from a distance.

I found the whole process smooth and understandable and a good sales price was achieved in only a few weeks. I was offered a choice of fee options and found the fees very competitive.
