Why Cairn?

Founded in 1999, Cairn is a team of specialists in residential property investment. Managing Director David Rowand saw that his estate agency clients could benefit from more than sales or purchase advice and help with negotiation. Property assets could deliver more return with the right development, refurbishment, letting management and property maintenance programmes.

Cairn began as a property company, developing and selling on existing properties. Now it works mainly with investor clients – sourcing, developing, managing and selling residential investment properties to maximise return for their owners.

How we do business?

Personal connection is central to Cairn’s ethos. We want to build long-term relationships with our clients. Agency means standing in your client’s shoes and Cairn takes that responsibility seriously.

Clients’ individual goals for their properties become Cairn’s goals too. We offer honest advice coming from experience and expertise but geared to your own expectations.

How we add value?

Adding value is at the heart of what we do delivering returns is why we make a difference. The reason clients want to use Cairn is because we are a independent company with two decades of property experience. We meet and exceed our clients expectations, whether you are a repeat investor, new landlord or client or a referral from one of our existing clients you can be assured your property expectations will be resolved. We have a dedicated well qualified team with local knowledge who are ready to listen.
