Meet your Aberdeen property expert 
Deborah Bonner, Valuer

Having been born and brought up in the Granite City where she has lived all her life, Deborah knows the city and indeed shire all too well. Having always held an interest in property, Deborah has found her years of working in property and assisting clients, extremely rewarding.

Deborah previously worked with a well-known property firm for over a decade where she was lucky enough to receive a thorough, and very hands-on training from the senior partner of the firm whom she worked for at the time, who, although now retired, is still a very well-known and respected lawyer, and indeed Deborah still looks after many of their clients today.

When asked what her passion and motivation are, Deborah commented,

It’s the perfect job for me as I love meeting new people and forming relationships and have a keen eye for interiors so it is the best of both worlds.”

While Gilson Gray are a relatively new name in Aberdeen, behind the brand there is a local and highly experienced team who have all come together from other familiar and established law firms to offer a bespoke, communicative, and professional service. Moving home is listed as one of the top 5 most stressful things you can do in life, and we never underestimate this.  It’s a savvy decision to choose to have us in your corner.

When asked about her favourite local spots in Aberdeen, Deborah said,

For coffee I like Mount (their toasted banana bread is worthy of mention) or Cult of Coffee. For casual dining, Olive Alexanders has a variety of home cooked delights and if you fancy going all out then Moonfish or Café Boehme are stalwarts of the city, consistently delicious and hard to beat, and finally the Bartenders lounge is my favorite place for a delicious tipple!”

“We just wanted to say thank you for your help with selling our house at 14 Wester Hill. We went to a closing date on Tuesday and were pleased with what it sold for. You valued our house at £25k higher than another local estate agent and we think that really helped us achieve over £400k, so thank you.”

We accepted an offer after just 7 days on the market and we are thrilled with the result. What a brilliant team, thank you!”

“From the initial consultation with Ben at Gilson Gray right through to the marketing and negotiations with Nicki and Jodie, I’ve been delighted with the service I’ve received. The marketing was spot on, which gave maximum exposure to my property. Suitable advice on a pricing strategy was given to me in order to achieve the best price possible. Having found my ideal property to move into, tight deadlines were given to Gilson Gray however this was genuinely no trouble and they took it all in their stride. Thanks again!”

We are so glad we took the plunge and went for it, stress and all, as it all worked out!”

  • Adam & Kirstie

“When we first started out trying to put our flat up on the market it wasn’t the best journey. A family friend then put us in contact with the team at Gilson Gray and the service we received was just amazing! They made it feel so easy from the start, and all the way through to the end. The team from conveyancing was also brilliant to deal with. They also made it feel so easy and under control for both selling our flat and buying our new home! We would highly recommend Gilson Gray! They were fab!

  • Karen MacEwen
  • Estate Agency & Residential Conveyancing

“The team at Gilson Gray Glasgow was very helpful and patient, especially when we got a glitch at the end of our flat sale. Fees are in line with most other companies.”

  • Collette
  • Estate Agency & Residential Conveyancing

“Having used Gilson Gray for our previous sale & purchase when we were selling again was only natural to go back to them as they were great first time around. We did not have a straightforward sale like the last time, unfortunately the sale fell through 3 times but thankfully 4th time lucky and we completed yesterday. Every person at Gilson Gray when things fell through the team were on it right away and pushed the social media side of the marketing and scheduled viewings around our busy schedule with ease. We we never not long on the market before we were back under offer! Our solicitor was as disappointed as us when the sales fell through but guided us through the process with ease and kept us well informed. Would use these guys again in a heartbeat, they are all so friendly, it feels like you are dealing with your friends or family not a law firm! Thank you once again for all your hard work and support through this process!”

  • Viviene Reid
  • Estate Agency

“Gilson Gray undertook all aspects of the sale of my property in an extremely professional manner. At the start, the process and prices were clearly explained and I received very useful literature demonstrating the various stages. Arran Lovell, who I originally met and who organised the valuation and marketing of the property was extremely helpful and professional. Going above and beyond to organise various tradespeople for me to undertake improvements to the property. All the administration was handled very efficiently and quickly. When it came to handling the actual sale, Kelly Jagger, who negotiated on my behalf did an excellent job and kept me informed and consulted me at every stage. Eventually she secured a very good offer for me. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the Service provided by Gilson Gray. Excellent value for money.”

Her professionalism mixed with natural kindness has allowed us to have many back and forth conversations that just flowed perfectly. I would highly recommend Deborah, and Gilson Gray in general to ANYONE who is looking to buy/sell property. We were never left in the dark as everything was explained in detail at each stage.

  • John Ingram
  • Estate Agency

“We decided to sell a small terraced house we had been renting out in Aberdeen. We used the services of your Aberdeen office and were dealing with Deborah Bonner. Deborah really was excellent. Deborah knew the Aberdeen market very well and was able to help us understand and lower our expectations of price in a difficult marketplace. Deborah arranged, managed and attended the viewings and we promptly got feedback after each. We did get quite a few low offers from developers and we took Deborah’s advice on these. When we got a sensible offer Deborah handled the discussion professionally and we are very grateful for all her work and the friendly phone calls. Deborah is an asset to Gilson Gray.”

  • Jo Thomson
  • Estate Agency

“We have used Gilson Gray twice now, they are the only solicitors we would consider using!  They are incredibly professional, helpful and understanding.  They kept us informed every step of the way and no question from us was too silly or too much. During the pandemic,  they went over and above to ensure everything they could do to help us sell was being done, from virtual tours and videos to weekly updates from them.  Their staff are all so friendly and helpful.  I highly recommend them!”

  • Hazel Robertson
  • Estate Agency

“Abbie Curran assisted me in the in the sale of my flat. Abbie was extremely helpful and kept me up to date during each stage. I would like to add I was selling my home during the Xmas period and having a person like Abbie assisting me during the holiday’s made the sale a lot easier during a already stressful period.”

  • Lauran Farmer
  • Estate Agency

“We could not recommend Lori and Megan at Gilson Gray enough. They always responded quickly and efficiently, were always kind and extremely helpful.”


  • Lesley Plenderleith
  • Estate Agency

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gilson Gray. They were professional and supportive throughout the whole process of selling our house. We were kept regularly updated and any queries we had were dealt with quickly. Through their perseverance, we successfully sold our house during the pandemic, with everything going through smoothly.”

  • Raphi Macinnes
  • Estate Agency & Conveyancing

“I had forgotten just how stressful searching for and buying a house can be. We approached Gilson Gray in North Berwick to view and offer on a house that we didn’t get in the end but it was their approach to us following that experience that really marks them for us as a company that goes above and beyond.

Knowing what we were looking for they helped us find it. Through the ups and downs from viewing to offering to finally having our offer accepted they kept in close contact with us, always available. They have a really unique kind, human approach to what they do which I had found in no other local agency. Their professionalism and dedication to supporting both seller and buyer goes above and beyond. Thanks to the team we have a new home and a new adventure ahead of us. Don’t think twice about approaching these folks for buying or selling.”
