Buy-To-Let Transformed By Renovation

One Stop Properties offer an excellent all round service to landlords

Landlords, Gilly and Rodger Dixon-Spain purchased a Glasgow property at auction which required a significant amount of refurbishment.  Gilly wanted to engage with a local property agent who would help them with the refurbishment, marketing and management of the property as they weren’t living in the vicinity.  They met a few property agents and One Stop Properties really stood out, as their approach was very open and honest.  One Stop Properties took over the management of the refurbishment project, dealing with all the contractors and sourcing the appropriate materials, ensuring the owners were kept in the loop throughout the full process.  The provided advice on how to enter the buy to let market and also highlighted the pitfalls to look out for.

Gilly and Rodger decided to purchase a second property and brought One Stop Properties into the decision making process right from the start, asking Wendy Gallagher to recommend buoyant areas that had a good professional base to ensure there would always be tenants available to rent the property.

Now 5 years later, One Stop Properties has delivered a full suite of services for the co-owners including:

  • Refurbishment
  • Letting
  • Marketing the property
  • Tenant sourcing and management
  • 24-hour call-outs
  • Property Inspections
  • Advice re legal implications i.e. EPC
  • Range of excellent contacts to source household items such as white goods, fixtures and fittings

Gillian Dixon, co-owner said, “We know we are in very good hands with One Stop Properties. Their honesty in terms of rent expectations, their own fees and where the marketable areas are within Glasgow were the key drivers in our decision to use them.  It is important for us to ensure that as landlords we comply with all legal requirements and having a fully qualified team at One Stop Properties really helps us achieve that goal.  We have full peace of mind knowing that any tenant or property issues are dealt with quickly and effectively and we are advised after the fact.  Their regular property inspections highlight any issues or potential issues which they start working to find a resolution right away.  Wendy and her team are excellent.  Even if our key contact is out of the office, the rest of the team know what’s going on so we always get an answer and a quick decision.  We like to work with people who are honest and we can trust, and One Stop Properties definitely fits this profile!”
