TESTIMONIAL OF THE MONTH

“We had several other estate agents round to speak to us about selling our house but knew as soon as we met Austin we wanted to sell with Halliday Homes. They offer a totally professional approach whilst still providing a personal service. Marie helped with her guidance and reassurance from the photos to the final offer, Grant was on the ball and always available when arranging viewings. They helped make the whole process run smoothly. Our house sold at closing date within a week of being on the market, delighted with the end result and would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of selling”

TESTIMONIAL OF THE MONTH

“As soon as I walked into the Linlithgow office, I knew that I wanted Halliday Homes to sell my property. From the onset, both Lynne and Jamie were friendly, honest, approachable and understanding. Selling my first property was pretty daunting but Lynne and Jamie clearly outlined the process and offered support throughout. Unfortunately my property went on the market just before lockdown but that didn’t effect the quality of service that I received from Halliday Homes. I received emails throughout lockdown, top tips to maximise the chances of selling my home and Lynne also kept in touch to keep me updated every step of the way. After lockdown I received an offer on my property. I couldn’t have asked for better customer service. Thank you to Lynne and Jamie for all their hard work, first-class service and for answering all of my silly questions! As I have said in my review, Lynne & Jamie are an absolute credit to your team.”
