Property Management

Welcome to Vanilla 
Traditional property management
in an non-traditional marketplace.

Being landlords ourselves and working in the property management business for large agencies in the last 10 years, studying the market, listening to tenants and other landlords, we realised that in recent years something was going wrong.

We realised that more and more customers were being lost in the fog of email trails, call centres and high staff turnover. This in turn was damaging customer understanding, customer service and ultimately disconnecting the agent with their client.

We realised there was a growing mistrust from landlords and tenant's alike towards estate agencies because of non-transparency, both financially and informational.

We realised that what mattered most to landlords and tenants was simple communication. To know that the person on the end of the phone knows you, your property and your concerns.

We realised something had to change...

Whilst we know that growth is good we believe that it is paramount to ensure that the primary objective in property management is to keep your customer happy, maintaining a straightforward, tailored service whilst being available, reliable, transparent and trustworthy. 

We believe in pledging to our customers we will not charge hidden
commissions on any aspect of your service, we will not stop listening to our customers and their needs, we will nurture tenancies, encouraging longevity whilst safeguarding your investment.

We believe in providing value for money and keeping promises.

We believe in traditional customer care, healthy working relationships built on agreement, respect and understanding.

This is what we believe and we want you to believe too.

"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."

"Vanilla did a fantastic job of remodelling the lower floor of our house to form a large open plan kitchen/living/dining area. We were delighted by the quality of the work carried out at a competitive price by Chris and his team."
