    Finding the right property to buy can seem daunting. You may not know the area, have the time to keep constantly searching online for new properties, or understand the Scottish buying process. We are here to help.

    As one of the largest estate agents in the East of Scotland, we can make sure you have easy access to the latest properties, property advice, local market insight and, if needed, legal conveyancing services. And you can access the services as suits you - online, by phone or in person at one of our local offices.

    Wide reach with local knowledge

    We cover Tayside, Angus, Fife, Perthshire and Edinburgh, listing hundreds of properties for sale at any one time and with over 60 property experts on hand to help you find your perfect home.

    Our property teams are based across our network of offices in Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth, Forfar, Arbroath, Montrose, St Andrews, Cupar, Anstruther and Kirkcaldy, so they really know their local area, current market conditions and property availability. From first-time buyer flats and family homes to new build developments, our property experts understand the property options and opportunities in their local market. Visit your local Thorntons office to chat through your property requirements with one of our team, or contact them by phone or email.

    Easy market search

    Our property search engine allows you to search our range of properties quickly and easily, whether at home, at work or on the move. Properties are added to our database the instant they come on to the market so you can regularly check our site for the very latest properties for sale.

    Or, if you prefer, join our mailing list and let us do the property searching for you. We will send you details of properties that match your requirements as soon as they come on the market.

    Legal support

    As well as offering a complete estate agency service, we can also help you with the legal conveyancing you need to buy your new property. Our legal teams can take care of all the legal procedures – from making an offer through to concluding the sale – with our property and legal teams working closely together to make the buying process as seamless as possible for you.

    Plus, if you are selling a property in England and buying in Scotland, we can handle the whole process for you as we have Solicitors qualified in both Scottish and English Law.

    Whether you are looking for your first home, moving up the property ladder, wanting to upsize or downsize, our experienced team will help find you the perfect property to suit your needs.

    Contact us by phone on 03330 430090, online or pop into one of our local offices for help finding your next move.
