We have been quietly working away in Edinburgh for over 15 years but we have now opened an office in Edinburgh, we’d like to introduce you to Lianna Denholm our Manager who has a wealth of experience in the property industry in Edinburgh.
What your job entails? My job varies from day to day which is why I love it, I carry out Property Valuations, give investment advice on properties, regular inspections, marketing property, property management, organising maintenance and repairs, safety certification management, deposit disputes, viewings, troubleshooting and resolving any issues ensuring landlords are meeting their obligations with regular updates.

What’s the Edinburgh market like just now? According to Insider 03 Jan 2020…”demand will continue to be strong resulting in higher prices although there will, naturally, be regional variations within this. You would expect to see hotspots such as Manchester, Edinburgh, and Bristol continue with only London, of the main cities, remaining slightly cooler as prices continue to readjust in the capital.” There is astrong tenant demand and the rent levels are high in most parts of Edinburgh. With the new legislation on Air B&Bs, and the growth of Cairn, I am committed to ensuring we hit our target to add another 150 new properties in 2020.
Why should clients come to you? I will always go that extra mile to ensure my tenants and landlords are happy. I am an experienced manager working in property, with excellent local knowledge. My key strengths are: Teamwork, trustworthy and hardworking!

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about healthy eating, nutrition, yoga, natural health solutions and I believe you are what you eat!
