It is with mixed feelings that we have concluded an eight-year relationship with our client Patrick Hendry. We’re sad to be parting company with Patrick with whom we’ve enjoyed working but happy and proud to have sold his flat in Deanston Drive, Shawlands – which we successfully let since 2010 - for an impressive 18% over the asking price.
He was so delighted with our performance he gave us a very flattering five-star review on Google and Facebook, for which we thank him.
Patrick, from the southside of Glasgow, first approached us to handle the letting of his one-bedroom flat when he and his wife Lorna moved to Australia with work. Despite the distance, we let the property continuously for more than eight years, handling all the issues that arose, including maintenance and tenant changeovers.
Earlier this year, Patrick contacted us to say that he and his wife had decided to sell the flat and they asked us to take care of the marketing and sale. Before putting it on the market we arranged for the smooth departure of its most recent tenant and then we had it decorated so that we could show it to its best advantage.
After arranging a Home Report, which valued the property at £125,000, we marketed it at offers over £119,000 and it sold within 18 days for £141,000.
“My wife and I have used the services of the Scottish Property Centre for eith-and-a-half years. They acted as our property manager/letting agent for eight years whilst we were based in Australia and recently acted as our estate agent , successfully marketing our property which sold last week. Throughout our dealings with Scottish Property Centre, they have exceeded our expectations; the tenants they arranged were both long term and returned our property in good condition. Our rent was always paid on time and we were very happy with the recent property sale value. We have always been particularly impressed by the consistently swift responses provided by Craig and his team over the years. I would not hesitate to recommend Scottish Property Centre to anyone looking to rent or let, buy or sell a property.”
