Graham + Sibbald discussed the requirement with their client to understand their brief. Upon securing the brief, we undertook a search of the market to find the right property.  Using our well-established contacts with agents, we discussed possible opportunities for our client including any off-market prospects that could fit the brief.   

Our team presented our client with short list of potential opportunities and thereafter organised and attended viewings on the client’s behalf. We then provided a report to our client with our thoughts on values and the investment potential of each property.  

We ensured our client was kept up to date on all progress whilst the team liaised with the selling agent and the solicitors to make sure the process was moving at all times, allowing our client to have a smooth transaction. 


The main challenges for the team were the current competitive nature of the market paired with a rarely available High Street location desired by our client.   


Successful acquisition in Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, satisfying the client’s needs within the proposed time frames. 


A targeted approach, utilising our relationships with agents to explore all of the opportunities available to our client allowed the team to secure a property that met all their needs within the parameters of the brief.
