Mark Atkinson has recently helped me with a large-scale house move from East Lothian. He was crucial to the success of the operation in many ways.
Mark gives expert and completely independent advice and can advise on who are the best professionals and tradesmen to use to tackle the many issues which arise during the course of a sale.
At all stages of the sale Mark was kind, calm, reassuring and practical. A sense of humour is necessary too and Mark provided this as well!
Anyone who enlists his help in finding, buying or selling a property is fortunate indeed.
As soon as I knew I had a purchase, I knew I needed Mark Atkinson to coordinate the sale. This is the third time he’s worked with us over the last 20 years and he’s still blowing away our expectations!
We were very impressed by the great service that Mark provided when we were looking for a flat in Edinburgh. It was the best property purchasing experience I have had, he took all the work out of the search and guided us through a rather protracted deal with the vendors making sure we kept our patience. We felt we greatly benefited from his contacts and experience and we are delighted with our flat. We found Mark through a personal recommendation and I have already passed his name on to several others.
Mark Atkinson surveyed a house in England for me at short notice. He told me all the things I really needed to know and was extremely helpful.
Mark provided clear and robust advice throughout a difficult and lengthy house search; he offers opinions on value but as importantly on the less immediately obvious aspects of location, amenities and lifestyle. He has strong views and we found his clarity of thinking on the wider aspects of house purchase to be invaluable. Mark adds value to the whole house buying process; he is a much better negotiator than most solicitors. He offered us friendly and helpful advice on every aspect of the house buying process.
From beginning to end Mark took all the hassle out of finding the exact flat we were after. Being based in Edinburgh and looking to buy in London, we didn’t know where to start. We would never have found our flat without Mark’s expert input. From sourcing to advising on the eventual price, it was an invaluable service.
I have known and worked with Mark Atkinson for years and he has advised me on personal property matters. I have also recommended him to clients and, on occasion, assisted his. He is one of the most experienced property professionals in Scotland dealing with residential property of every kind, including the most expensive and prestigious. His judgement is invariably sound and he can be implicitly trusted to give completely independent advice. As important, he is a pleasure to work with.
Through his contacts Mark Atkinson found a handsome flat for me before it went on the market. It is just what I was looking for, his assistance in the purchase was invaluable, and he was a pleasure to use as an agent.
