The Halliday Way – December Update

Friends,

I hope you enjoyed the festive period!

We cannot believe 2019 has come to an end, however I cannot express how excited we all are to start 2020 off with a bang! December is commonly known to estate agents as a month where not much happens but that is certainly not the case at Halliday Homes!

The proof is in the pudding! In the month of December our Bridge of Allan office listed 8 and agreed the sale for 8 properties. In Linlithgow our branch stats for this month are new listings 4 and sales agreed 5.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE MONTH

“Halliday Homes recently helped us sell our family home and I would highly recommend them. We had an acceptable offer within 5 days of the house going on the market – in what was a relatively quiet period for house sales. Austin and his team are incredibly professional and provided sound advice throughout. What I liked most about dealing with Hallidays was their outstanding communication. They kept me updated regularly and I never felt like I had to chase them for a response.”
