    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

      they were with us every step of the way ..
      A special thanks to everyone at Rettie Newton Mearns. We bought and sold last month and they were with us every step of the way. Such a friendly, yet professional team and completely down to earth - none of the 'snootiness' sometimes associated with estate agents over this way! I would definitely recommend.  J Porter
    • Seller Testimonial

      our experience was fantastic ..
      We have just used Rettie at Newton Mearns to sell our house. Having never used the company before our experience was fantastic. All the team were totally professional and always more than happy to help with queries and worries. After our initial meeting with John we decided we would use the company. The photos taken were amazing and showed the house off to its absolute best. We had an offer very quickly and Lynn Hickman could not have been more helpful. She is confident and knowledgable and always there at the end of the phone. I can't thank her enough. As we were buying from Rettie at the same time she gave us support and knowledge and kept me calm at a stressful time! Although it was mainly Lynn that we dealt with the whole team at Newton Mearns (John Holly and Alison) were brilliant. Thank you. We would definitely use Rettie again in the future.  Mrs L Kirk

      .. simply in a different league to the rest ..

      The team at Newton Mearns (Alison, Aimee, Lynn and John) have been absolutely brilliant in the professional manner they have dealt with our house sale. 8 days from going on the market to a successful sale for a fantastic price. We have used other estate agents in the past, but The Rettie team have shown us their experience in the marketplace to offer a superior level of service and support from start to finish. Off the back of the way they handled our own house sale, we have given them two other properties we own to sell. John has sold one before we even did the photos and marketing. Incredible, and again testament to their knowledge of the marketplace and who to target. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are quite simply in a different league to the rest.

      professional and attentive throughout  ..
      I recently sold my flat through Alison and the team at the Newton Mearns office. A big thumbs up as they were professional and attentive through out. Great people, quality photos and email notification system that kept me up to date. Thanks again.  G Gallie
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would highly recommend

      We have received an outstanding service from the team at Newton Mearns and especially from Holly. They've kept us well informed and up to date with progress of viewings and negotiated an offer for us which we accepted within two weeks of our property going on the market. Would highly recommend!

    • Seller Testimonial

      very supportive and i can't thank them enough
      Having recently sold my mothers flat via Rettie Newton Mearns Branch, the team were very supportive and i can't thank them enough for their care and attention they showed through-out the process. Having had each of the team visit the property before the flat went on the market i felt was really important and something i've not experienced from other companies i've dealt with in the past. Having each of the sales team visit i felt gave them each a truer sense of the benefits of the flat for which they would use to help promote it. I was always kept up to date with customers interest and when we finally sold the property they were incredibly supportive through the final stages through until complete. I would highly recommend anyone considering selling their property to use Rettie & Co. G Cunningham
    • Seller Testimonial

      managed to take away the stress ...
      Many thanks to Alison Anderson and all the team at Rettie Newton Mearns for all of their hard work and complete professionalism in selling our house. We could not have received a better service elsewhere. Alison managed to take away the stress and even though we were in a chain of four she helped to make things run smoothly. All the Rettie staff were very knowledgeable about our property and completely on the ball all the time. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Rettie.  A Meikle
    • Seller Testimonial

      really proactive and kept in touch ....
      We had been thinking about moving home for over a year before we finally listed our property. During that time, we went to view a house marketed by Rettie and in the intervening period their staff were really proactive and kept in touch regularly with properties that might be of interest. The staff are all friendly, helpful and professional. It was this friendly and proactive attitude that ultimately made us choose Rettie over other agents when the time came to sell our house. Once we had chosen Rettie, a professional photographer was arranged for the very next day and the whole team came to visit the property so they could talk knowledgeably about it to potential buyers. The following day our house was on the market and viewings were being arranged. Within one week of listing, a closing date had been set and an offer accepted. A few weeks before, while still in the midst of de-cluttering, redecorating and cleaning, I would never have believed the whole process could be completed so quickly.  C Blair
    • Seller Testimonial

      warm, friendly and easy to deal with ...
      The service we received from the team at Rettie was very impressive. They were warm, friendly and easy to deal with throughout. The quality of the marketing material was first class and they pitched our property just right. All of the team came to visit the flat to get a sense of what they were selling which helped assure us they were going to do a great job. I would happily recommend Alison and her team to anyone.  B Burnett
