As a landlord I have found Cullen Property exceptional. I contacted Cullen as part of my research to expand into the Edinburgh BTL market. From the first telephone call (one hour!) with the managing Director, Steve Coyle, I felt this company would be the right one to look after my property.

An added bonus is that Cullen can source, view, and give feedback on potential BTL properties to purchase.

Once my property purchase was nearing completion I was allocated a dedicated Cullen team to manage it. So from Day 1, Gary picked up the keys from the solicitors and ensured the property would be prepared and readied for renting. Elaine marketed, vetted and placed tenants. Anne oversaw all account related business. I did nothing, except act on progress emails sent to me from the team.

To me, Cullen Property: –
-Have a lot of BTL knowhow and their pulse on the local market.
-Are original and innovative.
-Are a dedicated team, straightforward and easy going, who manage my property.
-Provide an all-inclusive hand-hold through the whole process.
-Get the job done.

I’ve now purchased a second property in Edinburgh. This property has been let as an HMO, which I’d normally avoid, but I’d experienced how Cullen works and I knew they managed a massive portfolio of HMO’s, so decided to give it a go. I’m glad I did.

Cullen’s costs are average for letting and managing HMO’s in Edinburgh, but it is their quality of service that is important. Cullen Property exceeded my expectations.
