Founded in 1999, Cairn is now 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.
- Cairn specialists in the profitable but highly regulated HMO (House of Multiple Occupancy) market have a reputation for sourcing and developing properties not only to respected standards, but also to deliver above-market returns.

- Off market opportunities can offer enhanced returns and Cairn’s industry connections bring consistently high quality stock to us.
I recently rented a flat with Cairn. I was very impressed by the whole process, very smooth and professional.
Sally, who dealt with my move in was extremely helpful throughout and replied to any queries I had quickly.
B Brimley - Tenant
I'd just like to make clear that over the last 6 months or so I have enormously benefited from your professional service. You have been fantastic in communicating and ensuring Landlord and Tenant harmony. I'd like to thank you for this, and look forward to continuing to work with you.

J Clark - Investor
I recently had some problems with my current agent and I called Cairn to arrange a viewing for one of their properties. After chatting with the agent she was able to advise and keep me right on how to handle my current situation and my rights as a tenant and gave me more confidence to move forward. Cairn are a professional, straight forward agency from my experience.
L Munro - Tenant
Recently rented from Cairn, everything that has been reported has been dealt with straight away and repaired within a decent timescale. My property manager has always been on hand to help, no complaints and would recommend.
C Frankland - Tenant
Recently rented with Cairn. They seem to be happy to help with all matters. I had a leak coming from above and the property manager came out, assessed the situation/damage and repairs carried out quickly and professionally to a great standard. Went above and beyond.
C Cramm - Tenant
Have sold properties twice through Cairn and delighted with the service provided on both occasions and in this instance by Sheena. Would certainly recommend.
A Keir - Investor
I have recently purchased a small flat and Sheena Peat was my contact with the agency. She kept me up-to-date with developments and her communication skills are second to none (my solicitor said so too). Buying a property can be stressful but Sheena managed to streamline the whole process. Thanks for making it as easy as possible Sheena.
A OAKLEY – home buyer
Cairn Estate and Letting Agency had helped me to rent out my property within a very short time. Always diligent and enthusiastic, they kept me updated of the progress regularly. Moreover was able to provide backup plan when things were not working out. Also very responsive. As an overseas investor, this really gives me a peace of mind. I highly recommend Cairn Estate to all landlords looking for tenants in Glasgow.
Y Yin - Landlord
Cairn have been managing our student lets for the last three years. Being new to the market we needed guidance through all the statutory requirements, and wanted a reliable, responsive team. Our present property manager has as been excellent in this respect, as has their HMO advisor. Would recommend to other prospective landlords.
