    I’ve been very satisfied with the service you have provided and would highly recommend Garden Stirling Burnet to anyone in the future.

    G Edgar

  • Conveyancing

    Thanks, Louise & co, for all your help. It couldn’t have been easier for me. The service from both the Haddington & Tranent Offices was first class.

    B Baillie

  • Conveyancing

    Thank you so much Louise for your lovely services, you and your team have been amazing; very efficient. It’s been a smooth process and stress-free.

    A Barrington

  • Estate Agency

    Such a positive, and dare I say it, enjoyable experience. As soon as Audrey stepped through our front door, we felt at ease and in experienced hands. From start to finish, communication was excellent. No question was too small, and any concerns were put at ease. I would highly recommend Garden Stirling Burnet.

    Lisa Briad

  • Conveyancing

    Being a first time buyer and having a lack of knowledge/experience dealing with trying to buy property, Cherise has not only been helpful in providing guidance but also when it comes to going the extra mile when she doesn’t have too, or it’s not expected of her. She is all round a hard worker and a people person, making this experience stress-free.

    John Paylor

  • Estate Agency

    Lastly, can I say that the estate agent in the North Berwick office is absolutely first class as was the lady showing me around the property who even made a very early viewing to accommodate my timetable. I am a client of your firm, and so I was very encouraged to know that when it comes to me selling my property these ladies would be in charge.

    Eleanor Simmons

  • Legal

    Thank you once again, Cherise, for your very prompt and complete service. We very much appreciate that. Rest assured that, after many years of excellent service from GSB, we regard the company as our “go to” legal organisation and shall continue that relationship where there is a need to do so.


  • Estate Agency

    Thank you Gurwinder, the service has been excellent, and I would like to offer my thanks.


  • Estate Agency

    Dear Gurwinder, thank you for all your help with the sale and for being so good with all of your updates. I had doubts about going through this process remotely and have been pleasantly surprised with the way it all worked out so easily – no doubt because of your efficiency in handling it all.

    Mary Macleod

  • Lettings

    GSB property provides a fantastic service. Lesley is great she gave us quickly arrange the viewings, and the communication was easy, she was highly responsive, and explaining everything along the way. We missed out on one of the properties, she went out of her way and managed to arrange a different property and arranged a different property before they list on the market. I particularly liked their professional but friendly approach: very well-organised, but not overly corporate and hassle-free. I would highly recommend them. Thank you, Lesley.


  • Estate Agency

    Delivered a professional service throughout the process. Well-informed about viewings and gave great advice. Would recommend.


  • Estate Agency

    Having just completed the sale of our property, we feel compelled to document the superb service that we have received from GSB Properties and, in particular, from Gurwinder Singh, our nominated Senior Sales Negotiator. Throughout the whole exercise, Gurwinder showed true professionalism in addressing our needs at a time of clear market pressures. Her courtesy and tenacity was to the fore at all times as she very guided us along the way. The net result was a sale that was to our complete satisfaction. True five-star service indeed! It will be our absolute pleasure to recommend GSB to prospective clients.


  • Conveyancing

    Many thanks for all the help and advice you provided during the purchase. You made the process stress-free, by being so expeditious and patient throughout. Our son is now happily settled in the flat and enjoying life in Glasgow, so it seems like we made the correct decision, which is a great relief. We will be sure to be in touch, should we need any help with property purchasing/selling in future.


  • Conveyancing

    Extremely pleased to be mortgage-free at this stage of life. I hope this latest merger/venture goes well for GSB. I certainly wouldn’t use anyone else. Fantastic, friendly service.


  • Property Team

    Thanks so much for all your help, you've been really, really amazing........ We've been selling our own house down here in England for the past year and have never had anything like the kind of help and service from any agents that you've given, so a big thank you! A big plus was the amount of communication I received at every stage of the process.


  • Family Law

    I just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to you. You made my life so much easier from the moment I contacted you and your office. You all took a weight off of my shoulders and I will forever remember your kindness and professionalism. With a bit of luck next time I see you/ need your services it will be under different circumstances. My deepest gratitude.


  • Family Law

    I am blown away by your integrity and all the hard work you did on my behalf. I will always be grateful for all of your efforts.

    Arshia Kamani

  • Alan, Callum, Marie and the team

    Thank you very much to you, Callum, Marie and the rest of the team at GSB. You have been excellent with us through a very challenging time.

    Richard Kerr and Jennifer Clark

  • Mr Borrowman, Audrey, Charlotte & all the staff

    We would like to thank you for the professional and friendly way which led to the sale of our home. As you well know selling a property can be quite stressful and your efficient manner helped to keep that to a minimum. Thanking you all again

    Mr & Mrs Nudelman

  • North Berwick Office

    We were first-time buyers and felt quite apprehensive at the prospect of finding a solicitor and the process that purchasing our first home involved. The team at GSB Properties instantly put us at ease and guided us through the process with the upmost professionalism and efficiency. . . We were always greeted with a warm welcome at the North Berwick office and all our correspondence was replied to promptly. Thank you for all your help - we are so happy in our new home.

    From Denny and Harriet

  • Marie, Property Team

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend GSB who explained everything in a professional and polite manner. Any questions were answered quickly and always believed they were willing to go the extra mile just to support me in the sale. I would like to make a special mention to Marie who showed a level of commitment and dedication to the sale which is rare, clearly very knowledgeable and on top of her game. I can’t thank the team enough.

    From Scott Brown

  • Property Team

    We used GSB to market our house which is a beautiful but unusual house and although a stunning location, it is not on the beaten track so we weren’t sure how successful we would be to get a stream of interested viewers. From start to finish Marie Cook at GSB was superb. She advised us on how to present our house for photographs and the glossy brochure, she even took time to come to see our property in her own time and learn about the local area so she could speak passionately and knowledgeably about our home to potential purchasers. She arranged suitable appointments and made follow up calls to everyone who viewed the house and provided feedback to us. We successfully secured a sale within 3 weeks and Marie guided us through the negotiations to a positive outcome. I have already referred a friend to GSB and would have no hesitation in saying if it wasn’t for their professional help and guidance we wouldn’t be in the fortunate position to move on with our plans.

    From Louise and David Haddow

  • North Berwick estate agency and legal team

    The help, kindness, and understanding you have shown Matt and I throughout this process has made such a difference to us. We are extremely grateful to you both (and your colleagues who also kept in touch with us re viewings etc).
    Thank you both again so very much for all you have done to help bring this together for us.

    From Matt and Ali

  • Charlotte Murray/Ian Philp

    Now that the sale of my mother's house has completed, & with no last-minute hitches, I thought I'd write and thank you for all your help. I should have preferred to call in at your office to thank you personally but that is not practical given that I live in Cambridge, but very many thanks anyway. Despite the lack of offers (a market reflection), it all went smoothly eventually, and you made all the complexities painless.

    Professor John Smellie

  • North Berwick

    Wanted to say thanks so much for your meticulous work and making sure we were so well protected in both the sale and purchase. You really pulled out the stops with everything and we are very grateful to you for that.
