See what people are saying about us

"I have been renting flats in Edinburgh for thirteen years and have rented from both private persons and from agencies. Graeme Fairgrieve is equal to the very best landlords I’ve leased from, and certainly better than any of the other agencies I have used. Communication with him is excellent, and I find him fair, professional, polite, and honest. He is responsible and responsive for issues concerning the property; he responds quickly to any communication, and if it is an emergency, he comes immediately to investigate and remedy the problem. I would be happy to rent from him in the future and recommend him without any hesitation."
