Buying a property in Edinburgh when living in New Zealand was a challenge, given that I only had a few days to view properties and had no experience of buying property in Scotland.

I wanted a flat to rent out and then eventually live in. Being a remote buyer, I needed to have people I could trust to assist me.

I approached Deirdre as she has extensive knowledge of the Edinburgh property market and offered a personalised service.Within a few days of our initial meeting, she gave me a tour of the areas of Edinburgh I was interested in and arranged a viewing of a flat.

I then had to return to New Zealand. Deirdre viewed several other properties and took photographs and videos of them. She answered all my questions promptly and provided me with the relevant due diligence information.

Within a few weeks, I had purchased a suitable property which has now been let to tenants and is getting the level of rental return that Deidre had predicted.

When I returned to Edinburgh to view the flat for the first time, I am pleased to say that it was better than I had envisioned.

Deidre has been extremely professional and reliable and have no hesitation in recommending her and look forward to working with her again.
