We are also the only Scottish member firm of the Mayfair Office Marketing Group, which forms an international network of the finest estate agency firms in the country, and which helps to provide additional marketing expertise through their links with property editors and feature writers for leading publications such as Coast magazine, The Week, Sunday Times and Country Life, to name a few.

We are also members of the Property Ombudsman, The Scottish Association of Landlords, Client Money Protect, Letting Protection Service Scotland and the Scottish Lettings Register (LARN1805011) and are proud to rigorously maintain the highest standards set by the industry.
