“Stonefield Estate Agents would be my first choice if having to sell again. The service was excellent and all the staff were very helpful, as I am an older client they guided me through all aspects of the sale and this took the stress out of the equation. All my questions were answered right away and from Carol Anne & the team to Barry who initiated the sale I am glad I used their services.
Please don’t hesitate to use Stonefield you will not regret it.”

“A truly professional service provided by the excellent Stonefield team. From day one when Barrie, came out to my property to advise on the process, I knew I was in safe hands. Very professional and made me feel at ease and everything was explained and understood clearly. Photos were taken and where of the highest quality and the drone aerial shots where exceptional.

Communication was first class with regular calls and emails on the sale of my property and the purchase of my new property. Many thanks team Stonefield for a highly professional and friendly service!”

I found working with Stonefield to be an absolute pleasure, I cannot thank the team enough for their help. From the initial meeting with Richard, to achieving a sale within 10 days, everyone was so helpful, friendly and professional. Barrie’s stunning photography really showcased our house and we were delighted with the consequential viewings. We were kept fully informed of progress by our dedicated negotiator, Nicola Campbell. She was simply fantastic! Thank you all so much.

“We must have ended up dealing with everyone in the Stonefield team in our efforts to both sell and buy. Not only did we end up with a great result, but everyone we spoke to was friendly, courteous and highly professional. And all of this during the frenetic post lockdown period.

Couldn’t recommend Richard and the team more highly.”

Cambusdoon Drive

“I recently sold my house through Stonefield and throughout the entire process they were friendly, efficient and helpful. They achieved a good price for the property and I cannot recommend them enough. Carol Ann was our main point of contact and she used her experience to get as much information on prospective buyers. When on the few occasions she was not available the member of Team Stonefield that stepped in gave prompt and professional support. Top Marks to your company Richard!”

“From the moment I first contacted Stonefield I felt valued. I spoke back and forward with James and never once felt pressured to arrange a meeting or to go forward with the sales process.

James then came to our house and spoke with us in more detail and gave a rough estimation of what we could expect our property to be valued at (he was spot on). We couldn’t believe how smoothly the whole process went from there. On the first day of viewings we met Karen at our home, I felt like I had known her for years! Such a friendly, welcoming and bubbly person. Carol Anne in the office was amazing with calling us regarding the enquiries and just FIVE DAYS after our property went live on the market we had a sale agreed!

Genuinely cannot recommend these guys enough! I will absolutely use Stonefield again in the future and continue to recommend to family and friends who are thinking of selling.”
