    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Very impressed with the initial advice
      We would like to thank all of your team for handling the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new property, we appreciated the efforts that you all put in. Regarding the sale, we were very impressed with the initial advice and professionalism from Paddy, including his guidance regarding arranging a professional photographer whose photographs were superb - we felt this was additional expenditure that was well worth the cost. Amy we would also like to commend you on your negotiating skills in securing for us the price that we were willing to accept.
    • Seller Testimonial

      very knowledgeable and professional
      It was a pleasure to work with the Rettie team at Berwick. We initially bought our house through Rettie, and were impressed with them then. For that reason, when unexpected circumstances forced us to relocate, we returned to Rettie to sell. We were even more impressed. From initial discussions, through to sale, we found the team very knowledgeable and professional, providing advice and support throughout. In particular, Amy provided regular updates on interest and provided market research which assisted us in getting the best offer. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rettie.

    • Seller Testimonial

      We wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
      We invited two agents in for interview regarding the sale of our property and Paddy Paton from Rettie in Berwick Upon Tweed stood head and shoulders above the competition. He was kind but honest in what we needed to do to effectively market our property, telling us what we needed to hear, not what we wanted to hear. The result of his appraisal was that we sold the property in less than two months, and achieved the value we sought. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

    • Seller Testimonial

      We cannot fault Paddy's effort and enthusiasm
      We moved our house sale to Rettie in October 2015, having had limited interest previously. Paddy Paton took charge of the marketing and we saw an immediate upturn in viewings, resulting in an offer being made following the open day in January and an offer being accepted in April. We cannot fault Paddy's effort and enthusiasm in driving the sale forward and we found his advice invaluable with regard to marketing. We would not hesitate in recommending Rettie, primarily because of the service we received from Paddy and his team.

      I cannot fault the efficient service
      Choosing Rettie (Berwick) to sell our home has turned out to be a decision very well made. From the initial consultation through to sale completion I cannot fault the efficient service that Patrick and his team have delivered. In particular, Amy's professionalism, attention to detail and commitment to keep me fully informed throughout the whole process meant that I was never left in any doubt about the progress being made, all complemented by a quick sale at the full asking price. Job well done.

    • Seller Testimonial

      an attitude that makes things happen.
      Rettie & Co have achieved considerable success in the last 3 months at Edrom Newton with the sale of 3 houses and a further 2 under offer. They have managed this with a realistic approach to market conditions and the ability to focus on the whole sales process from viewing, to accepting offers and then to executing the deal. The team at Berwick-Upon-Tweed are professional and have an attitude that makes things happen.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      great service, great advice and a great result
      Whilst suddenly faced with the prospect of moving from the South East, it became obvious very quickly that Rettie were the agent with the greatest range of premium property in the area. Patrick and his team took time to understand us and our needs, matching the relevant properties to our requirements and most importantly consulting with us when we came to choose between two great homes. The purchase progressed smoothly, Rettie were always available and we never felt pushed or pressured. At what is a stressful time for all, we felt that Rettie provided great service, great advice and a great result.
