Thorntons - St Andrews
17-21 Bell Street, St Andrews, KY16 9UR
From the 1960s onwards, Thorntons grew to become the largest Scottish-based solicitor estate agency in our operating area. In the 1980s, we became the first local solicitor estate agent to open the now-familiar high street property shop. A significant game-changing merger in 1990 transformed the estate agency landscape locally and the firm expanded, opening bustling property shops throughout Dundee and Angus. These property shops gave buyers and sellers their first experience of the one-stop shop’ approach by providing a full range of complementary estate agency and legal services.
Building on these solid foundations the firm continued to grow and develop our offering for clients. In the early 1990s we expanded into Perthshire. Our most recent expansion has been into Fife in 2014 with mergers with the successful firms Murray Donald and Steel Eldridge Stewart.
A number of key staff in our property team have been involved in the evolution of this highly successful operation over recent years. They have witnessed the expansion of the firm’s market share in both existing and new build property sales, particularly evident in the boom years from 2004 to 2008. During that period the residential property market provided tremendous opportunities for the firm to harness its strengths and invest for the future.
During the less buoyant years which followed, we continued to move forward and prepare for the resurgence of activity in the property market. Even when the market was at its toughest, we continued to invest in our people and systems to maintain our position and deliver the best service for sellers and buyers.
The last 25 years have seen tremendous changes in market demands, with new technology and online opportunities opening up innovative ways for us to deliver services to clients. As well as extending our online client communication we have also invested strongly to provide late night and weekend openings. This ensures buyers and sellers can speak to someone in our branches who will be able to help – at a time that suits them.
Our strong involvement with the local solicitors’ property centres continues and forms an important part of our offering. We have also embraced newer nation-wide online platforms to give sellers the widest choice possible.
We continually look to provide our services in an innovative and flexible way – always with the emphasis on what our clients need. And we look forward to building on our past as we continue to deliver top quality estate agency and property services across Dundee, Fife, Angus and Perthshire into the future.
