"During the past 15 years or so I have dealt with Moira Grimshaw. During this time Moira has been very professional and efficient, but much more than that, has gone above and beyond a purely professional level of service. She has always been ready to help out with any problem, offering solutions, often involving her own time and expense. I thought it appropriate to acknowledge the fantastic level of service Moira provided throughout the years. I can give her no higher praise than to say I came to regard her as more a friend than a professional contact in our dealings, an attribute sorely missing from most legal partnerships these days." - I MacInnes

"I can't say it often enough - the service you and your team provides has been excellent. Complete polar opposite of what I have experienced previously at another firm when moving home. Everyone I have dealt with here clearly has the customer at the focus of everything and I always appreciate the prompt and friendly service."

"Thanks again for looking after me, things have been pretty stressful at times and all your excellent work, experience and attention to detail helped me get through this."

"I can’t believe our house has sold! Thank you so much for your patience, professionalism and kindness. You really have been amazing and we will most certainly be using you again for any property we find."

April 2021

"We are writing to thank you for your superb service in valuing, marketing and finally selling our house. 

A house move is generally very stressful and a move from Aberdeenshire to Norfolk did fill us with some trepidation. However, right from our initial contact with yourselves in December, to moving into our new home on the 31st March, we found nothing but helpful professionalism from every member of your team.

We now need to thank each member of the team for their support. From Jackie and Cathleen at the beginning of the process, to Brian and Lorna with the legal and financial matters, you've facilitated the move smoothly and calmly. We have moved house many times in the past and have experienced various issues on each occasion, but this time there were no such stresses. The valuation, marketing and offers stages progressed incredibly quickly with Jackie and Cathleen, with additional thanks to the super photographer recommended by yourselves - please pass on our appreciation for his services - and then legal / financial matters were dealt with efficiently and clearly by Brian and Lorna.

We hope that you are able to pass on our thoughts about your professionalism to the management at your firm and would be happy for you to use us for any future testimonials if required.

Finally, we hope that Collie's continues to flourish and makes further inroads into the Banchory property market, which has perhaps, been dominated for too long by somewhat complacent local agents."
