About Paton & Co

What we do and why we do it

At Paton & Co we believe that your property is more than just bricks and mortar. It is your home and your sanctuary. A space to fill with memories. It is the most important purchase you make. And when you decide to move on, you need an agent who understands this.

Here at Paton & Co we offer the Scottish property market a modern and fresh approach to buying and selling property. We are purposely not a traditional high street agency with the overheads this entails. Yet neither are we a faceless online agent that lacks in the detailed knowledge and appreciation of your area.

We do things differently. We offer our clients the best of the old and the new, bringing together the knowledge base and the high level of customer care that you would expect from a traditional estate agent, while also providing responsive and intelligent advice. By embracing the latest technologies, we provide a global reach tailored to a relevant audience for your property. Our approach delivers outstanding results as well as long-lasting relationships with our clients.

Each property we market is presented with immersive and high quality photography, while virtual tours bring each home to life. We want potential buyers to be able to experience your home from the comfort of theirs; to welcome them in and show them around. And we go that step further by sharing our knowledge of your local area, enabling buyers to see not only your property but also the lifestyle that comes with it.

Whether you are buying or selling property, we will be working with you every step of the way, using our experience to guide you through each detail. At Paton & Co, it’s what we do, it’s what we’re passionate about, and it’s why we launched our business.
