  • Susan & Mark Osprey (January 2021) – “We felt very happy with the service and compared to other experiences of house sales we have had this was by far the best – caring staff, knowledgeable and appreciative of how stressful house selling can be, especially in a pandemic!”Susan & Mark Osprey (January 2021) – “We felt very happy with the service and compared to other experiences of house sales we have had this was by far the best – caring staff, knowledgeable and appreciative of how stressful house selling can be, especially in a pandemic!”Estate Agency Client - Burghmuir Road, Perth

    "I wanted a local firm and was impressed with Premier when we purchased our house.  Marketing all very good, quick and easy, website all updated quickly.  As you did many of the viewings, we were very appreciative of that.  You seemed to really get a feel for what the buyer also wanted, as well as seller.  Also got feedback very quickly and we never had to chase up.  Excellent customer service and very personalised.  Always felt like you knew who we were when we called.  It felt like you wanted to sell our house as much as we did. Great to be able to use you to view properties as we were not in Perth. You always tried to get a few people to view if we were going to do it ourselves, conscious that we had to travel down for this.  We never felt rushed or pushed into anything.

    We felt very happy with the service and compared to other experiences of house sales we have had this was by far the best - caring staff, knowledgeable and appreciative of how stressful house selling can be, especially in a pandemic!!  Absolutely recommend for all of the above reasons  - we wish we could use you again if/when we decide to sell our house in Aberdeenshire."

    "Viewed house on Premier’s site so decided it would be simpler to use Premier after speaking to Cloe then Alan & Katie.  Photos & video good, also helped with arranging home report.  Any correspondence was helpful, informative and polite.  Communication good, especially on the occasions we had to contact Alan direct, he always answered/contacted us right away.  Even after a couple of real set backs you stuck with it giving good advice whilst basically starting again with advertising and calming us down.  Customer service good and reassuring at times when needed it most, personal experience.  We were pleased and happy with the service."

    "We chose Premier because of the awards they have won for service.  Excellent, good quality, advertising.  Difficult dealing with potential viewers during COVID, but Premier managed this well and viewings were all done per government rules and instructions.  Communication first class, I was always given at least two days’ notice of every viewing and background information of viewer and ability to purchase.  Negotiation all was straight forward.  I felt confident and reassured during the process and customer service was spot on.  Don’t change a thing.  Would recommend."

     

  • Margaret Reilly (November 2020) – “Katie and Alan both came to meet me and go through my plans for my house move. They listened.

    "We asked five estate agents to value our property. I chose PPP because their approach was very personal. Katie and Alan both came to meet me and go through my plans for my house move. They listened. Both professional and approachable, I knew they could steer me through the selling process. They are the people to trust.

    I was delighted with the whole package that Premier Properties put together to market my property. The photos were beautiful. The video tour is very user friendly, I was very impressed, it enabled people to view the property from their own home. All the details were on social media within 48 hours.

    Alan conducted the viewings. As I was showing himself and Katie around the property, he was pointing out the main selling features, committing them to memory. He managed to fit in a potential buyer for a second viewing in an already packed diary. Talk about being in two places at once. He did well as the property sold in less than a week.

    Everyone one of the staff was so kind and patient with my questions. I can't praise them enough. What a great team.

    Alan and Katie were spot on with the asking price of the property; attractive to buyers and myself.  The best of both worlds.  PPP are realistic, they gave me sound advice on the value of my property, a selling price that was achievable, not pie in the sky. Experience shows.  I felt that Katie and Alan and their team really cared, I was in good hands."

     

  • Jeremy Bull (November 2020) – “Alan is hungry for results without being too pushy or flashy.  He sells the idea of the property first & foremost to the buyer & from there gets them to see why they should buy it.  Alan sells the vision.”Jeremy Bull (November 2020) – “Alan is hungry for results without being too pushy or flashy.

    "PPP were recommended to me after having a poor experience with another sales agent.  The marketing was fantastic.  Very up to date with the latest technology & social media.  Alan spotted straight away the 'fatal flaw' in the earlier company’s description of the property.  Very professional, nothing was too much trouble.  Kept me informed of progress & any questions Alan couldn't answer about the property.  Alan knew how to negotiate.  Didn't push me, the seller, into accepting any offer just 'get the sale'.  Didn't introduce time wasters either.  I felt involved in the process.

    Would recommend.  Alan is hungry for results without being too pushy or flashy.  He sells the idea of the property first & foremost to the buyer & from there gets them to see why they should buy it.  Nothing was too much trouble, quite happy to be on site if the buyer wanted to get a tradesman to measure up, all part of getting the buyer engaged.  Alan sells the vision."

  • Valerie Elgadail (November 2020) – “I found Katie and Alan very skilled in negotiating sales and very quick to respond.

    "I had previous experience of using them and found Katie and Alan very skilled in negotiating sales and very quick to respond.  Very good at dealing with potential buyers.... Helpful advice from professionals which is what sellers need, and quick to respond.  Customer service good! In spite of Covid making things a bit difficult.  With regard to the negotiation, I took advice from Alan and he explained my options. There was a little tricky situation which was resolved quickly by getting a second viewing arranged within hours of the first offer falling through and an offer made immediately after.  I felt as if I got an acceptable offer and, if this became complicated for any reason, I was sure that Katie or Alan would be able to push for a sale somehow.  I would recommend them for their skills in direct selling.... No waffle, quick and thorough in responding."

    "They were recommended to me. Although I had booked with another agent to come and discuss my potential house sale, I chose premier properties prior to that as I was so impressed with the client centred approach, as well as the efficiency and drive that I could foresee at the initial meeting.  Very professional service. The marketing was so effective I had 3 viewings and was sold for over the asking price within a few days.  Three viewings within days speaks volumes.  I believe that the team work was key.

    Everybody worked so hard to help me sell my home.  Polite, Knowledgeable, supportive and empathetic to my needs.  Although I did negotiate the deal the old fashioned way, they followed that up and sealed the deal.  I am quite sure, had I let other viewers in my property, it would have went to a closing date with premier properties and I would have seen a higher offer. They are fantastic negotiators as could be seen from our first meeting.

    The overall experience made me feel like it was my "home" and my story and that they were helping me sell for my benefit, not theirs. Not just a money making deal for them but to help me sell for my reasons.  Would absolutely recommend without question!  You can’t improve on imperfection.  Thank you team Premier Properties."
