About Us

Property Made Simple

SouthSide is a team of hardworking, driven and fully committed individuals. We respond quickly and work with our landlords and tenants. We are proud to be one of the leading agents in Edinburgh.

The SouthSide story began in 2009. John noticed that landlords and tenants were being overcharged in many ways, from tenant fees to “hidden costs”. So being a landlord himself, he started to manage his own buy-to-let properties, whilst completing a graduate management programme. Fourteen years on, SouthSide now employs a team of around 40 full and part-time team members who have all played a part in the company’s growth and success and who bring a wealth of knowledge to our clients.  As a company, we focus on long-term relationships and excluding new team members recruited this year, over half of our team have been with the company for between five and fourteen years.

Customer Testimonials

What Our Customers say

I have a couple of times used the (Silver) Let Only service from SouthSide to secure a new tenancy for flats I manage.  With this service SouthSide perform the advertising, arrange viewings and provide reference and credit checks. This gives the properties full exposure on all of the leading advertising platforms and frees up my time to perform the viewings, which I prefer. SouthSide are very accommodating and useful in this process and are there to provide market advice.

D Aront – Landlord

I have been lucky enough to have had more than one flat in Edinburgh managed by this Property Management firm. My first contact was with John Davidson himself – in 2011 – who salvaged my flat after a very bad rental experience – I was at the point of giving up!! John saved the day and then handed the day-to-day management on to one of his brilliant team  – Mark Phillips followed by Lewis Collie – a first class experience. I am now sadly having to sell my property – however the team at Southside have been a huge support to me throughout this experience. I could not recommend them highly enough – thank you Southside.

J Couper – Landlord 5*

Ione is efficient and helpful. Really appreciate her!!

C Baird – Tenant

Overall very friendly letting agency, certainly much better to work with than some other agencies in Edinburgh! We were given a cute little care package when we picked up the keys for our new flat which was a nice touch as well. Generally good response times for issues, and our property manager Ryan has been so helpful in fixing the various bits and bobs we’ve needed and figuring out any problems we’ve had. Definitely would recommend this agency!

A F – Tenant

Every interaction I had with them was really nice they always help and try their best to help, I got stuck with the flat last week call the agency everyone was so understanding and trying to help, less than 30min after I have a call from the lock man saying I am on my way don’t worry. This was fast and really nicely handled but everyone and it is always nice to work with people like that.

B Emilie – Tenant

Southside Edinburgh provides fast-response and efficient service to tenants. The property management team, including my correspondents Katy Fitton and Leah Miller, is very professional and warmly helped me settle down when I moved into the property. Also they are patient in explaining unknowns to me about any questions related to the property.
