    SELLING YOUR PROPERTY
    Our approach to selling property has been refined over many years. It provides an effective and stress-free process that will deliver the best possible sale for your property.
  • paragraph

    STAGE 1 APPRAISAL
    If you are thinking of selling your property, we'll be very happy to visit and give you a report on market conditions, as well as an initial no-obligation appraisal of your home.
  • paragraph

    STAGE 2 HOME REPORT
    You have to provide a Home Report to show anyone who is genuinely interested in buying your property: this is a legal requirement. A Home Report has three compulsory features: A Single Survey and Valuation, an Energy Report and a Property Questionnaire. We can advise you on the best platforms or firms to use to create your Home Report. Alternatively, we can arrange for a Home Report to be carried out and produced on your behalf.
  • paragraph

    STAGE 3 PREPARATION
    We will give you honest, well-informed advice on the best way to sell your property, and we will create a bespoke marketing strategy for you. We'll then prepare the material that will be used to market your property. This step involves the commissioning of high-quality photography of your home and the production of floor plans. You'll be able to choose from a number of proven brochure styles. There is also the opportunity to have a video of your property made. Your property will be placed on our website, which attracts an average of 166,000 visits a month and is linked to key property portals such as Rightmove, OnTheMarket.com and TheLondonOffice.co.uk.
  • paragraph

    STAGE 4 LAUNCH
    When your property is launched to market, a For Sale board will go up and viewings will start. If you are unable to attend, a member of staff will conduct viewings on your behalf. Our database contains the details of over 8,000 active buyers. We will directly contact all relevant buyers with details of your property. We can send out information through our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. We can also advertise your property at competitive rates in national newspapers and magazines
  • paragraph

    STAGE 5 REPORTING & COMMUNICATION
    We will keep in touch at every stage of the selling process. You will receive regular reports from your selling agent. These will include feedback from viewings and details of the follow-up contacts we make with potential buyers.
  • paragraph

    STAGE 6 NEGOTIATIONS
    Our experienced team will conduct negotiations on your behalf. We will use our expertise to meet your objectives for the sale and will liaise closely with you to agree a strategy to get you the very best deal. We will keep you informed and up-to-date with every new development during the negotiation process. You'll be able to call your selling agent at any time to discuss how things are going.
  • paragraph

    STAGE 7 CONVEYANCING, EXCHANGE & COMPLETION
    During the final stage of the process we will be in contact with your solicitor to help facilitate the conclusion of your property sale (if required). We will remain actively involved all the way through to the handover stage to help make the entire process as smooth as possible for you.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      None compare to the standards demonstrated by you

      We have been extremely impressed by the professionalism shown by your company. In particular, we would like to compliment Jamie for his outstanding ability to sale-match. It is still hard to believe that from a simple enquiry, a family who had no plans on moving for several more years, had bought and sold within one week.This is my third house move in a few years because of re-locating for work. I have encountered many estate agents during this time across Scotland, from both a buyer and seller's perspective. None compare to the standards demonstrated by your company. I will have no hesitation in recommending or indeed using Rettie again in the future

      Lana & Ronan (Gordon) McMillan

    • Seller Testimonial

      thoroughly professional and very impressive

      I write to thank you and your team at Rettie West End in relation to the marketing of my Aunt's flat. I am a great believer that positive feedback is often forgotten today, and therefore I would like to commend you on the patience and professionalism you and your team displayed at all times when dealing with myself.

      I would like to add that the positive experience I have enjoyed dealing with Rettie extended from the staff answering the phones to yourself and Anne who was a great credit to your organisation. Lastly it would be remiss of me not to mention your protégé Richard, who despite his comparative youth was thoroughly professional and very impressive at all times.

      George Moir

    • Seller Testimonial

      Neither of us can believe the offer we received

      We just wanted to say "Thank You!". The sale of a home, particularly one that has been a part of our lives for 26 years, was not the easiest thing to agree to. We have found it a difficult process, on a personal level, but can't thank you enough for the way in which you have dealt with clients and us. You provided a friendly, cheery and professional service and Rettie is very lucky to have you on its team. Neither of us can really believe the offer that we have received but are extremely grateful for it.

      Gary O'Connor

    • Seller Testimonial

      so helpful and patient

      Just a mail to say thank you so much for all your help with the flat sale. You have been so helpful and patient so thank you. It wasn't always easy so we were lucky to have you as our agent. If we move back to Glasgow I will be back in touch asking you to find us a house! Many thanks again and all the best.

      Lucy Murray

    • Seller Testimonial

      so responsive and accommodating
      I want to thank you for all you have done to make this such a straight forward process for us. You always kept us in the loop, so responsive and accommodating and I want you to know how much we have appreciated all you have done.
    • Seller Testimonial

      extremely helpful, efficient and professional

      Rettie have been extremely helpful, efficient and professional especially Lindsay. Many thanks and should I consider buying/renting/selling I will definitely be giving yourselves a call.

      Louise Buchan

    • Seller Testimonial

      you were so good with emails and phone calls

      Dear Lindsay, a belated thank you to yourself, Maitland and your colleagues. You made the sale of Mum and Dad's flat in 1 Belmont Crescent bearable. I always knew what was happening as you were so good with emails and phone calls. Sarah was marvelous on the rental side. Thank you all so much.

      Barbara Kropholler

    • Seller Testimonial

      very impressed by your care and professionalism

      Good Morning Anne, Simon and I wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for all your efforts in promoting and successfully selling our last flat. It moved incredibly quickly and we were both very impressed by your care and professionalism in ensuring that was the case.

      We have been impressed overall with the entire process handled by Rettie and we ask that you pass on our thanks and appreciation to all the staff involved with the sale. Once again huge thanks Anne.

      Elaine Mackenzie

    • Seller Testimonial

      A stressful time was made smooth

      Dear Lindsay and all Rettie staff,

      Thank you so much for your excellent service and help in selling our 40 Hughenden Road flat! A stressful time was made smooth and every thanks to your help! It was very much appreciated.

      Lisa Ray

    • Seller Testimonial

      head and shoulders above the local competition!

      Many thanks for all your help and persistence. Certainly Rettie are head and shoulders above the local competition!

    • Seller Testimonial

      I've talked about your office in glowing terms

      Rettie was so helpful - the most helpful of all the agents. I have talked about your office in glowing terms to anyone who asks... and should I ever move you will be my first port of call.

      Frankie Burr

    • Seller Testimonial

      You have both been incredible

      I just wanted to say thanks to you and Anne. You have both been incredible and are an amazing team. I'll have no hesitation in recommending Rettie West End to friends who are thinking of selling.

      Moira Stark

    • Seller Testimonial

      you will be our first and only point of call

      This is just a quick line to say thanks very much for the great job you both did in helping us to sell our flat and also to apologise for taking so long to do so. I also really wanted to let you know that I was so happy and impressed with the service we received from you both and your support team. The value we received for our flat far exceeded what we hoped for, and I am confident we would not have achieved this without the Rettie West-End office.

      Rest assured if and when we are selling any further properties in the West-End you will be our first and only point of call, and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others. Based on the number of boards we are seeing you are attracting good business, so I wish you all the best going forward and I am confident your domination of the market will rightly continue.

      Duncan Burr

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      refreshing, professional and extremely helpful

      Thank you [Anne Sutherland] and the Rettie West End team for your support during a very painful house hunting period! As you know we are moving back to Glasgow from London and have been looking since Christmas, commuting up to see various properties. It has been a stressful and difficult time and we have dealt with a number of estate agents (not all of which have been particularly helpful). Our experience with Rettie, and yourself in particular, has been very refreshing, professional and extremely helpful and Jamie and I are delighted we've now found the perfect place at 8 Cleveden Gardens through Rettie!
