A Very Walker Wylie Christmas

Posted on 16th December 2020 in News

It might almost be Christmas, but we’re sure it doesn’t feel like it to most! Usually, we’d be winding down over the month of December as people rush to get their Christmas plans in order, but this year – perhaps due to the thwarting of our regular plans, or people having more time on their hands to prepare early – we’ve been as busy as ever over the past few weeks! Conducting viewings in accordance with government guidelines and selling beautiful houses like these – it’s seemed to us as though Christmas has come early!

At this point, we’re taking some time to reflect on our year at Walker Wylie. We’ve helped many people find their new homes this year – bringing some comfort and security to families in Glasgow in a trying time. We’re delighted to have been able to continue to operate generally as normal throughout most of this year and are grateful to have even seen huge spikes in enquiries and interest in our properties. We’ve certainly been kept busy this year. 

Perhaps our most exciting development this year is that we moved into new premises!  Just a stone’s throw away from our previous hub, we built and established our first Walker Wylie Estate Agents store at 148 Woodlands Road in June. This was a long time in the making. We started out back in 2016 keen to establish our place in the market as a fixed priced estate agency in Glasgow without the big price tag. With our local knowledge and expertise, we knew we had the potential to grow our business. As our clients found that we could walk the walk as well as talk the talk, our business grew to the point where we required a physical space to advertise our properties and allow more customers to visit us. Although we haven’t been able to invite as many of you into our new space as we would like to due to the pandemic, we’re looking forward to doing so next year!

Over this past year, we’ve also welcomed onto our team Nicola Birrell, who has been helping us keep our website up to date and reach out to you all on social media like Facebook and Instagram. We love to engage with you all on these platforms with regular videos updating you on our goings-on, we find it a more personal way to connect. So if you’re not already following us on these channels, head over to our pages now! Part of what makes us who we are at Walker Wylie is the personal approach we take as an agency, and we hope that seeing our faces regularly pop up on social media reaffirms that to all of you!

We’ll be taking some well-earned downtime over the festive period; watching terrible television reruns, drinking beer, and eating too much whilst keeping safe within our family bubbles. Next year, we’re looking forward to getting back to some normality and being able to close the 6ft gap between us! Until then, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
