The Halliday Way – October Update

Friends,

Are you ready for a great, but cold, Autumn? We certainly are!

Our plans this Autumn are to continue the success we have already enjoyed this year. Properties are selling but we have noticed the market slow down but as you know, we do not let this stop us! With our Linlithgow office now running full steam ahead, we have some really exciting properties coming to the marketing. Austin, Lynne, and Jamie are having a great time meeting with our new clients at valuations and viewings along with local business owners who have made us all feel very welcome. 

In Bridge of Allan, the team are busy as ever. Austin, Marie and Mark have welcomed Grant Thomson to the team – Grant has great experience behind him and will fit in well. Pop into the office and meet the team, have a coffee and we can talk you through the process of listing your home.
