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!”
“Thank you for all your support in helping to make this [property sale] happen. Very much appreciated. As you say, a really good offer in very quick time, particularly given the struggling market conditions in Aberdeen! Take care and good luck for the future. It’s been a pleasure working with you.”
“Excellent professions service, with the clients interests always at the forefront. Nothing was too much trouble and the communication was excellent even after hours.”
“The experience of selling my old home and buying somewhere new was made easier for me in the safe and capable hands of the team at Gilson Gray. I felt reassured that I was getting the best legal advice, the strongest marketing strategy and comforted (at this stressful time) by frequent communication between myself, the sellers of my new house, and the buyers of my old one. I therefore have no hesitation in highly recommending their services.”
‘I’m very impressed with the level of service provided by Gilson Gray. They were very helpful with the purchase of my new property and I had no hesitation in engaging them to sell my existing property.
Both Joe and Jodie have been extremely diligent in their handling of both. Jodie has always been prompt with her replies to my emails regarding the sale.
I recommend Gilson Gray and would definitely use this company again.’
“Gilson Gray Team provided the best service I have ever had from an estate agent. The team clearly communicated the process and kept us up to date at all times, making it the most stress free selling experience we have had. Thanks to everyone.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“I want to thank you Deborah for all your help. I really appreciate everything you have done.”
“You have been a great support, Deborah, exceptionally reliable and a wealth of information. I would happily recommend you to anyone.”
“We are extremely grateful for your support and professionalism throughout the whole process. Your sunny disposition, positivity and outstanding communication has given us such a positive experience. You have also been an absolute pleasure to deal with, to top it all not only have we sold the flat, which I thought might be doubtful, but we’ve also achieved a great price for it, well done.”
