    What our clients say
    • Introduction

      We pride ourselves on our expertise and exceptional levels of service. But that's easy for us to say. Here is what some of our satisfied clients have said.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      exemplary service

      "Simpson & Marwick has provided us with exemplary service over the past 10 years. You have been there right from the start of our Edinburgh property journey, and even when the market has been beset with uncertainty, working with you and your team has been an entirely positive experience. The expert advice and marketing has unquestionably resulted in us achieving significantly higher-than-average sale prices on our properties. Thank you for your support and guidance over the years."

      M & H MacDonald

    • Seller Testimonial

      extremely good at what they do

      "Needless to say we are absolutely delighted with the efficient sale of our house. Many thanks to everyone on the team who worked hard to help us. They were without fail diligent, knowledgeable, pleasant and extremely good at what they do. It has been a pleasure dealing with Simpson & Marwick and we would not hesitate in recommending them."

      AS

    • Seller Testimonial

      choose Simpson & Marwick

      "We rarely write reviews, but are doing this unprompted, as we are so pleased with the experience we've had! We had several valuations before putting our house on the market. Initially, we had been fairly sure we'd go with an online only agent - believing that we'd save money on commission. However, the in-depth knowledge of the local area and the experience and professionalism of the Simpson & Marwick team influenced that decision and we choose Simpson & Marwick. We are so glad we did! Every single member of the team were brilliant. They are so professional and really responsive and always manage to be warm and friendly and happy to answer any questions. They really do go the extra mile. We were really happy with the price we got for our house and feel the whole sale experience has been really positive. We would say to anyone making a decision about which agent to choose, choose Simpson & Marwick. Don't be swayed by the lower headline price of other agents, including internet agents, it won't necessarily save you money and we doubt you'll get anything like the same level of service."

      H & R Taggart

    • Seller Testimonial

      no hesitation in recommending

      "Whilst moving house is frequently referred to as being one of the most anxiety inducing processes, we believe that the combined efforts of the Simpson & Marwick team made the process considerably less stressful. From initial sales and financing ideas and throughout the sale and purchase process the advice we received and the timely actions taken were faultless. Knowing that every issue was being chased up before being thought of, by us, or before we had to ask, provided us with the confidence we needed. So a big thank you from both of us. We'll have no hesitation in recommending the services of Simpson & Marwick to others and have already done so to friends starting out on a similar house moving journey."

      R Spence

    • Seller Testimonial

      invaluable and impressive

      " Just to say thank you. Your knowledge, style and approach has been invaluable and impressive."

      S Mudie

    • Seller Testimonial

      Stellar performance!

      "Yet again, our very heartfelt thanks to everyone at Simpson & Marwick who had a role to play in this sale: Stellar performance!"

      HF

    • Seller Testimonial

       just amazing

      "I just wanted to send a personal note of thanks for helping to make the sale of my flat so smooth and painless! The whole team at Simpson & Marwick were just amazing and my fears of selling from overseas were overcome! I was really pleased with the price too, despite the slow market I think it was a good result"

      C Neil-Dwyer

    • Seller Testimonial

      excellent service

      "Thank you everybody! I'm so glad the sale has gone ahead so smoothly. We appreciate your guidance and excellent service throughout the whole process, so professional and highly valued."

      V & J Brown

    • Seller Testimonial

      fantastic job

      "We are delighted with how things have worked out with the sale of our property, and whilst we feel we had a great property to sell, I don't believe we'd have achieved what we did without the fantastic job that Simpson & Marwick did for us on the marketing, etc. Thanks again from us both."

      G & G Henshaw

    • Seller Testimonial

      second to none

      "From start to finish an exceptional and efficient professional service. Simpson & Marwick have their "finger on the pulse" on the Scottish property market. Their attention to detail, streamlined processes, legal expertise and excellent communication skills are second to none with going the extra mile as standard. We were provided with updates at each and every stage of the process and I would have no hesitation in recommending your team."
