Since January, the firm has seen sales jump by more than a third, with the most marked increase in the city’s west end and southside property markets.

It has completed its office move from Queen’s Park to Ashley Street, Charing Cross, ahead of a planned recruitment drive. The agency is also keen to expand across the Central Belt.

Stuart Wylie, co-director alongside business partner Barry Walker, said: “We’ve recently achieved our highest quarter of fee performance since we launched and we’ve been responsible for setting several street and area records for the sales prices we have achieved.”
