Unfurnished modern apartment required in city centre

Scott’s Relocation home search case study

The brief

We were asked to help a couple moving from the US to Edinburgh find a stylish, unfurnished modern apartment within 5 minutes walk of the city centre.  Given that 90% of city centre accommodation in Edinburgh are old traditional tenements this was quite a challenge.

What Scott’s Relocation did

We made contact with our network of estate agents to gather information on suitable available properties, and also got in touch with our “off market”  contacts looking for properties not yet available on the open market.  We then devised a personalised action plan including orientation tours to help the couple identify priority locations

We arranged viewings for 8 ‘hand picked’ properties in the clients’ preferred locations.  While this was happening Liz received a call from one of her contacts about a brand new contemporary property just 5 minutes walk from the assignee’s work place.  We included this property in the clients’ itinerary and, to our delight, they immediately fell in love with the property.

Liz then secured the lease, carried out the snagging and ensured that all of the work was completed before the couple’s arrival, made sure that the walked into a warm and welcoming new home.

The clients says ““I do want you and Maggie to know how impressed Matt and I are with Scott’s Relocation’s services. You both really took our needs, tastes and personalities into account and the end result was the perfect flat in an area that really suits us.

The orientation to the city was so useful and really helped me get my bearings here. You guys are hard working, professional and super-accessible. And we appreciate the fact that your services didn’t end once we moved in. The ex-pat get togethers are thoughtful and fun – thanks for continuing to reach out”
