Property renovations – work we have done so far

GG dundee Elaine Wallace L BLUE

Having a rental property is a great way to invest in for your future. However, these days expectation of the standard of the property is high meaning that tenants want quality accommodation to stay and live in. Hence, property renovations are becoming more and more popular and in this blog, we want to share our recent case studies of the clients who renovated their rental properties using our service.

Client testimonial

“Our rental property needed to be completely renovated and we live too far away to take on the project ourselves. A friend recommended Gilson Gray and we never looked back. Every conceivable aspect was addressed and dealt with effectively, efficiently, and stress-free for us. The turnaround period was kept to an absolute minimum and quality tenants have since moved in. Gilson Gray has restored our faith in Letting Agents and has kept us informed the whole way. Their knowledge and sensitivity to the project have been exceptional.”
