Boutique Estate Agency Glasgow – Who We Are

Vanilla Square Boutique Estate Agency Glasgow was established in 2010 by Innes Allan.

Originally Vanilla Square Letting, and founded at a time when residential sales market was at an all time low in the aftermath of the recession, the company set new standards in the letting market in Glasgow and quickly became one of the leading names in the residential property sector.

At that time specialising in finding tenants for some of the most prestigious homes, whilst raising the bar in terms of rental return and service, their enviable portfolio of properties, unique level of service and the attention to detail paid to each and every property became their key strength and the foundation of the new business.

Steven Lucas, who has worked for a number of high profile estate agents in Glasgow joined Vanilla Square to bridge the gap between letting and sales. He offers both Vanilla Square landlords and new clients the same exemplary levels of hands on, expert knowledge and personal service Vanilla Square are now renowned for.

As the business flourishes and continues to grow, whether selling, buying, letting or renting, clients of Vanilla Square can be assured they are in the hands of a team of professionals who care passionately about their clients’ needs and achieving the very best results for them.

Meet the Directors

Innes Allan | Managing Director

Entering his 22nd year in estate agency, Managing Partner Innes Allan has an in-depth track record in sales and letting and has witnessed over the last 6 years how well operating in both fields can truly complement each other. As well as acting for investors and Buy to Let clients, it is equally satisfying to act for a long standing landlord on his sale, or sell a property to an investor and then immediately be asked to look after their let. One of the founding Partners of Corum, Innes sold his equity stake and left the business in 2009 to launch Vanilla Square Letting. It’s been a fascinating experience to be involved in two start-up businesses and as Vanilla Square Letting evolved into Vanilla Square, Innes frequently acts for existing clients delivering the Vanilla Square bespoke service. When not working Innes enjoys golf and downtime at Glasgow Golf Club as well as socialising in the West End.
