Founded to address a distinct lack of agents in the marketplace providing a team of informed experts able to provide a personal service, Cairn began as a development company, refurbishing properties to sell on behalf of clients.

As this aspect of the business grew, several clients retained the firm’s services and sought a broader range of advice. This led Cairn into ‘sourcing’ properties for clients and developing properties on their behalf; a service which soon became an integral aspect of the business by removing the hassle factor from finding properties and developing them before selling or letting them on its clients’ behalf.

This was the key that developed other aspects of the business, such as a maintenance team created to deliver these services which now comprises builders, plumbers, electricians, tilers and plasterers.

A letting division was then formed, which now manages some 400 units. The letting staff boast a wealth of experience and knowledge. Delivering a high level of service to landlords and tenants alike, they provide a fully-managed option and tenant-finding service, once again relieving clients of any hassle associated with the management of their investments.

The firm also has experienced staff on hand to handle HMO (House of Multiple Occupancy) enquiries and to help guide clients through this complex process.

Cairn most recently introduced a sales division. Now a thriving part of the operation, this department comprises a team with over 35 years experience of property sales between them. A personal approach is a central feature of Cairn and its sales team is on hand 24/7 to reassure clients throughout what can sometimes be a stressful process.

Let Cairn ‘unlock the potential’ in your home, investment or development.
