  • Morgan Place, Dundee
  • Mr & Mrs Dewar

“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 has been exceptional.”

  • 58 Main Street, Dundee
  • Mr & Mrs Napier

“As new investors to the Dundee property market, Gilson Gray has guided us successfully through each step of our journey; from their amazing knowledge of the Dundee rental market, to carrying out complexities of HMO submissions and then to their seamless day to day property management. The team supports us fully as landlords whilst also caring about tenants, a mix which is quite rare in the property management market. You truely will be hard pushed to find a better property management company.”
