Experienced Estate Agents
We have over 40 years of experience in Sales as well as Lettings and have seen the market from the old day of printing ads in the paper to sell houses to today’s connected world. We have seen ups and downs and we have come to understand, live and breathe real estate.
In 2016 alone we sold over £40 Million worth of property in and around the West End of Glasgow – from smaller one bedroom tenement flats to full four storey townhouses. Over 98% of our clients suggest they would sell with us again and recommend us to anyone.
Prominent High Street Office
Previously situated on Hyndland Road, we have quickly outgrown our home and now offer our unique, highly personalised services from a stunning new office just across the street from Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens.
As a fairly young estate agency we do understand and value cutting edge technology when it comes to marketing property, however we believe estate agency is a people business and that will never change. It is for that reason that we invest in our bright office with high profile presence – so we are easier to reach and be seen by clients, potential buyers and more.
In Touch When You Need Us – 24/7
Our impressive ‘Client Hub’ is a portal that allows you to track how the sale of your home is going at any time from any place. From viewers feedback to notes of interest and offers, you are able to supervise the sales process and see what we do for you – 24/7.
Marketing Your Home to the Widest Audience
When you instruct us, your property will reach a wider audience as we are one of the few estate agents who are present on ALL of the major property portals – Rightmove, Zoopla, S1 Homes, PrimeLocation and our own site.
With our experience and reputation, we constantly build our database of vetted, active buyers, which means we might already know the potential buyer for your home. It also means we have closed many sales discretely off the market.
We keep all of our viewers’ details on file including addresses and contact numbers, along with their financial positions and whether or not they are in a position to move quickly or have a house to sell. All of these factors help build a picture of the suitability of a client for buying your home.
At a closing date we will present you will all offers and advise on the strongest candidates, but ultimately you will decide on which offer to accept.
Always Speak to A Director
At Vanilla Square we feel it is important that your house sale is not passed down the ranks and dealt with by several people, diluting the service you would receive. The Director you meet at the valuation will be on hand at all times, advising and strategising on the best route forward, whilst you will be allocated to one Sales Negotiator who will become well acquainted with both yourself personally and your home. Having the same people dealing with your sale will help take away what can be a stressful experience and give you one-to-one point of contacts that you can access 7 days a week.
The difference it makes being a boutique agency is we are fully hands on, responsible and only care about your success. By always dealing with a Director, we can offer flexibility, hands on care and responsible decisions from start to finish.
We don’t have hired viewing agents but instead we personally accompany viewers by appointment only.
Highest quality marketing materials
From photos, to brochures, to the presentation of your home on major property portals and our own website, we put effort and attention in every detail to ensure your home is presented in the best light and will attract the perfect buyer.
As a fiercely independent agent operating without the corporate ties, we have more flexibility than anyone to tailor each sales package to suit. For example, some would like to launch to the market with little or no upfront cost and some would like payment of their Home Report deferred. There are those who opt for a fixed sales commission and others who prefer a scaled/ performance related fee depending on the final sale price. All of these options are possible at Vanilla Square and we make sure our fees are competitive whilst still maintaining the highest levels of service and market exposure the industry can offer.
Well connected within our industry
Any property related problem you might have – we have an extensive contact list with some of the most highly regarded industry professionals in Scotland. Our close connections with Independent Financial Advisors, the most respected surveyors in the business, the best solicitors to undertake the conveyancing process with ease – they are all in our close contacts.
Equally if improvements are required before marketing or something is needing repaired, we have a full maintenance team of contractors ranging from plumbers, electricians and joiners, to roofers, window cleaners and interior designers. Everything to help make your selling experience the best it can be. Just ask us and you will see.
Supporters of the Local Community
Community spirit, local support and development are important to us here at Vanilla Square. Our commitment extends far beyond selling and letting homes for our clients. To demonstrate this dedication, not only do we sponsor and support a variety of local initiatives and community organisations, we raise and donate money to some of the most remarkable charities close to our hearts.
