Buying & Selling

Our property department is run by Russell Dickson, who is a well-known property professional in and around Edinburgh (and indeed further afield), having been involved in the sales & marketing of residential property since the late 1970’s. Working in close liaison with our legal team, our Estate Agency follows the same “hands-on” principles where clients can expect regular first-hand contact with Russell, often during out of office hours and weekends.


Our very experienced solicitors have a steadfast record of expertise in advising clients on the often challenging process of buying a home in Scotland. The thought can be daunting, whether for first-time buyers or seasoned movers. We pride ourselves in delivering sound advice from the initial consultation and appraisal of a prospective property, to agreeing an offer strategy (a crucial element), through to the purchase and consequent conveyancing leading to the conveyancing of the Contract ( Missives) and finally, the receipt of the keys! Along the way, we’re on hand to provide an on-going progress report of how matters are progressing.

With regard to Commercial property, the same principles apply.

We’re only too happy to discuss our buying service in detail, first-hand at our offices. There’s no charge for this initial consultation.


From the earliest meetings, more often than not at the property, Russell continues to advise a marketing campaign designed specifically to the circumstances presented. That could involve recommending measures in preparation for going onto the open market, or even whether the time is best to act now… or later. It could include discussion regarding the why’s and where-withall’s of asking a Fixed Price, or an Offers Over price; whether we should show the property to prospective buyers; should there be fixed viewing times or by appointment and so on. We provide an accompanied viewing service, should that be required.

Our selling fees and requisite outlays are agreed prior to going “live” for sale. We believe our charges to be fair and often we settle on an incentive-based formulae where both parties benefit. Either way, we’re happy to discuss.

We are geared up to provide a variety of options when it comes down to brochures and sales schedules; we have an in-house photographer who also prepares floor plans. We are able to refer potential buyers to highly regarded and independent mortgage advisers.
