I had an absolutely fantastic experience with Pauline and everyone in the team! Always very prompt to respond to any issues raised and resolved them very quickly in the most positive attitude. I would highly recommend them as they offered me two lovely flats that I grew very fond of and called my home. Thank you again for everything.

The team at Watt Property were always attentive and diligent in addressing any maintenance issues in the property. They're inspections of our rental property we're fair and updates/notifications were communicated clearly and professionally. We will absolutely refer others to Watt Property in the first case. Many thanks!Colin and Laura

A great letting agency, always deliver a fantastic service.
Based on my experience with various property agents, Watt Property is by far the best. Every interaction I have had with their agents have been nothing but positive: They are friendly, approachable and professional. When booking a viewing for a flat, they were exceptionally accommodating: They allowed me to pick whichever day suited me, and one of their agents gave me a private viewing of the flat. Not only that, the flat was in immaculate condition and was exactly like the advertisement pictures showed, which is a truly rare experience. They are quick to respond to any issues that come up, and they are quick to resolve them. I cannot recommend Watt Property highly enough.
Very professional and kind staff, efficient when any request is forwarded and always available for questions. Totally recommend them!!

We have been fortunate to have Watt Property Management look after our property for a number of years. We continue to do so for a number of reasons including the following.1.We have complete trust in the Company and its highly skilled and personable employees.2.The Marketing Procedures are exemplary. Our property has been extremely well presented by the team with attention to the smallest detail, for example, dressing the rooms and even moving furniture to maximise space. Their advertising makes use of the most current up-to-date technologies.3.The maintenance of the property has always been at a high standard, ensuring that our rights as owners and those of our tenants are upheld. This has been done through due attention and diligence to rules, regulations and standards. Where maintenance work has been necessary this has been done quickly by their efficient team of local tradespeople.4.We cannot praise highly enough all aspects of their communication from the more complicated legal and financial aspects to the smallest matters. It is always prompt, courteous, informed and intelligent.Over the years we have recommended the company to friends who have all thanked us. We highly recommend Watt Property Management to both owners and tenants.

Pauline and her team have been amazing! Getting my flat refurbished was a daunting prospect for me but Pauline made everything easy and so much less stressful than it would have been otherwise. She also kept me sane by organising roofers when an unexpected leak (thank you, Storm Whatever-your-name-was!) got in the way, which was a huge relief. The icing on the cake is that Watt Property's prices are incredibly competitive and Pauline's communication is fantastic, which made the decision to hire them a no-brainer too. Very much a 12 out of 10, and highly recommended!
12:53 07 Mar 20
Highly recommended, 3 years now Pauline and her team have been amazing. Any need of maintenance that came up was looked after immediately and always resolved. Could not thank the team enough.

Cannot recommend Watt Property enough. The staff in the office were so helpful and accommodating and always get back super quickly. We had a couple of very minor issues in the flat and they had the repairs booked in next day. Nothing was too much trouble and they are an exceptionally reliable and friendly letting agent, which is a rare thing in a city centre! Thanks again for everything.

We had a very pleasant 6 month stay at a property leased by Watt, and hope the next tenants do too - we only wish we could've stayed longer except my work intervened with that possibility! If we are ever back in Edinburgh, we shall certainly come to them first to find somewhere to live. They are hands down ahead of all their competition - highly highly recommend.

Excellent service from Rebecca at Watt Property; she really made me feel like a valued tenant and went out of her way to help me!I highly recommend Watt Property

Watt Property have provided excellent service as both a letting agent and a selling agent.I was a reluctant landlord when I originally let out my flat. I contracted Watt as my property manager after a period of trying to do it all by myself, as I found it stressful and difficult. I was really impressed with the service. The staff are friendly and their knowledge and professionalism made me a happier landlord knowing that the flat was in good hands, the tenant was respected, and my instructions were understood. They provided clarity and honesty to both me and my tenant, promptly dealt with any problems, and communicated updates regularly.I found the charges agreed for the management were fair and in line with other similar property businesses. However, the benefit of the excellent service and knowledge have made the transaction really good value for me as a landlord. The feedback I got from my tenant was also really positive.I also marketed my property for sale through Watt. I followed their advice and have since agreed a sale for a price and within the timescale they predicted.

We have to admit that renting a flat from Watt Property was a great pleasure from the beginning. They provide a very high quality of the service.If any problem occurs they react to them with the speed of lighting.The staff was always very friendly and keen to help.Special thanks to Gavin for his effort and good vibe, when he was dealing with our requests.We recommend them anytime.

I've worked with 4 property management companies who have managed and (mis)managed my flat in Edinburgh over the past 10 years or so. For the past few years Pauline and her team at Watt property have looked after me and my flat like no other. Great communication, professionalism and diligence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Watt Property to family, friends and others (indeed I already have on a number of occasions). Rest assured your property will be looked after with great care and attention to detail.

I engaged Watt Property to do a complete renovation of the bathroom in my apartment. The job quality, attendance to details, and service level were all top notch. The work was completed to my entire satisfaction within budget and target completion date. Pauline and Gavin were personally involved throughput the whole process to control budget and quality, and followed up promptly on any residual snagging that needed to be done. Questions and comments to them were all responded swiftly and effectively to give me peace of mind. I would recommend Watt Property to anyone intending to do property upgrades.

Dealt with Watt Property during a letting of a flat last year and have nothing but good things to say about the company.Throughout our time in the property, from viewing to moving out, Watt were helpful, polite, easy to contact and extremely quick to deal with any problem we had. For instance after we first moved in we had an issue with a leak in the bathroom that was not caused by our flat but the property above. Rather than say it was nothing to do with them Watt were instantly on top of it and made sure the problem was sorted on our behalf, and it was resolved within a couple of days.When moving out Watt were still eager to make sure it was as painless as possible and were very accommodating with dates.Would be delighted to deal with Watt Property again.

We used Watt Property for the first time to sell our flat and it was sold within a week! Very professional company, super friendly staff, very confident in their ability to sell our flat, the pictures taken complimented our flat hugely and the text to go with it, described our home beautifully. The communication and updates throughout the process was spot on, we were kept up to speed at all times. Pauline was veryProfessional, reassuring when my partner had a slight wobble! She was totally professional at all times and completely understood that it is a stressful time selling but we were thrilled to get it sold in such a short time. Pauline was very confident in the companies ability to deliver and was great at advising re price and what we should expect and keeping things realistic.We would highly recommend Watt Property as they more than delivered with a top class professional service. We are absolutely delighted that they got the outcome we wanted and in a super quick timescale. They have demonstrated they can deliver with a friendly professional attitude whilst reassuring you along the way. We fully trust in this company and highly recommend them to deliver, you will not be disappointed!

Always excellent service and support from friendly and helpful staff. We recently had a pressing problem, which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. We feel valued as tenants and couldn't be happier. We highly recommend Watt Property to anyone looking to rent.
22:16 24 Jan 18
fabulous letting agency, we have been with them for number of years and would highly recommend to anyone. Everyone is professional and very friendly, nothing is too much. they are good to their landlords and to their tenants. thank you its been a pleasure to be with you and Merry Christmas!
12:48 23 Dec 17
The staff is very professional and considerate towards their tenants. Any problems would be promptly looked at and sorted. My landlords were amazing. I took good care of the property and got back full refund of the deposit at the end. Would definitely use their services again in future and highly recommend them!
15:51 20 Nov 17
Excellent service and would definitely use again.
03:31 15 Nov 17
This company is marvelous - You can DIY these days but these folks genuinely care and look after you with experience and a tenacity to get things sorted ... and quick - and when things go wrong - especially if you have other things to cope with in life - these folks step in calmly - then using their experience and professionalism (that suffers no nonsense) and will have it dealt with without fuss - and they charge a fair rate for doing so ..... never using difficult circumstances to charge you huge amounts - very trustworthy!

Very efficient and professional, best agents I have used while renting. Fixed all reported issues and made a requested lease swap easy and quick.
We have engaged Watts as our property managers for the past 5 years. Hand on heart they are the best management company we have come across and we have a number of properties leased out in other cities. What makes them so effective at how they operate is that they come to us with solutions not problems when issues arise. They are fair and take a personal stance in keeping tenants and landlords equally happy. Thank you Watts.

We had over 12 years experience with Watts and found them to be very helpful with everything. Any problems that did arise were dealt with in a very timely manner and we were kept informed about everything. The inspections that are done are purely to check on the status of the property and to ensure that if there are any issues even the ones you may not have noticed, like the seal in the shower gets repaired/replaced straightaway. Pauline & Co in the office are lovely and very professional. When we vacated the property we had no issues over getting our deposit back (we were surprised at how quickly it was returned to us). I would recommend them to anyone.
07:39 13 Sep 16
Pauline and Co are absolutely brilliant at what they do. They were responsible for letting and selling our flat and did both superbly. They know their business well and found us the perfect tenant very quickly. They then went on to sell the property when it was time to do so and found us a purchaser quickly who also kept the tenant in place, meaning no one lost out. If you're looking for professional letting and sales agents look no further than Watt. We previously tried selling our flat through Warners and had one viewer in a year. With Watt they target the best market and found us a buyer very quickly.

One of the best tenancy providers. Found a good flat close to all the amenities rent was reasonable for the area the flat was in. Had some issues with the water heater, kitchen exhaust but was responded quickly and fixed. Had no issues with the contractors who had visited a few time for repairs and fixes.Would recommend Watt and would look forward to my next tenure when staying in Edinburgh!
Very positive experience, Pauline was a great support throughout and very helpfult!

When I moved to the USA recently I had decision to make about who I would have manage my property. I chose Watt Property as they were close to my property and because they answered my questions in a knowledgable way. The experience for the most part has been first class and I have since recommended them to friends without hesitation. The company seems to have a good balance of managing my interests and that of the tenants. If you are new or experienced landlord I recommend them.

Excellent and timely service. Had no issues during tenancy and watt property was always there to help.

I can't recommend Watt Property Management highly enough: letting my flat through Watt was one of the best things I have ever done and I just wish I'd done it years ago. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Excellent all round.
Watt Property Management is by far the most professional property management firm I have come across. They offer a bespoke and personalised service of a quality I have not come across before in this sector. The staff at Watt Property Management are always friendly and helpful and it is refreshing to be able to hand over your property and have complete peace of mind that it is in capable hands. From experience Watt property management are also much better informed on the legal aspects of letting a property than their rivals, who seem positively ignorant in comparison. Watt Property Management truly are a pleasure to deal with.
