Relationships that last

Thank you so much to Amanda at Cullen Kilshaw in Jedburgh for all her help and advice in selling our property. From the moment we met Amanda she made us feel at ease and was really efficient, knowledgeable and answered all our emails and phone calls very promptly. Her support, advice and professionalism throughout was amazing. The service we received from Cullen Kilshaw and especially Amanda was first class and we would definitely recommend them for selling your property. Thank you so much again Amanda.

We would like to publicly thank all the teams in Melrose and Galashiels for their understanding of the local market and can do attitude, it was a delight to speak with everyone being so excited and passionate about the sale of our property, I myself have been in sales for the last 30 years so I know it can be very challenging, the end result the sale of our house was a delight to everybody! Many thanks.

Brilliant service provided by Cullen Kilshaw when selling my property. Kept me right the whole way through! Special thanks to Amanda in the Jedburgh office who couldn’t do enough for me.

Have had a wonderful experience with Cullen Kilshaw – from the moment we popped in and saw Katz to the finish, the team have been very proactive, supportive, quick at responding and really listened to our needs. Trying to sell in a hurry to be in a position to offer on another, we were advertised and online within a week including meeting the solicitor, home report, particulars, photos taken etc. The fixed selling/buying fee makes knowing how much it will cost really easy and upfront and the fact that everything can be done within Cullen Kilshaw makes it so easy and stress free. Would certainly recommend and use again.

A note to say my daughter Sam, Pauline and I have all now seen our new property listing and agree that it gets nicer every time we look at it.

A big thanks to you and all the staff at Cullen Kilshaw for getting this out, and to the photographer and Shepherds as well.

Thanks for bringing all our ideas together in pictures and pdf form, word perfect in its descriptions.

Just want to say a huge thanks to Jill Borthwick for all her help, support and clear guidance in assisting us purchasing our new property.

Given we are returning to the UK after living overseas for 6 years, Jill made the process seamless and as stress free as possible. Always on hand to give advice and never once was I made to feel as I was bothering her.

We are delighted with our new home and look forward to our new chapter.

Thank you.

Another property sale handled by the friendly and professional team at Cullen Kilshaw. They kept us in touch all the way through from initial valuation by Brenda, viewings arranged by Katz and Arlene through to legal work done by Jill, the whole completed quickly and hassle free.
Compliments to all.

Thanks for making what can be a stressful time very straightford, it’s much appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Superb service from Morag and the team assisting with our recent purchase of our new home. Local, friendly office and very approachable.  Would happily recommend.

Ruth, March 2019

Amanda at Cullen Kilshaw made us feel very welcome from the moment we stepped through the door, and she took great patience and care to answer any question we had promptly and efficiently. The whole process was made simple and stress free and I cannot recommend them, and Amanda highly enough.
