Our Story

Background of SouthSide Property Management

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. Twelve years on, SouthSide now employs a team of over 40 full and part-time staff who have all played a part in the company’s growth and success and bring a wealth of knowledge to our clients and excluding new team members recruited this year, over half of our team have been with the company for between five and twelve years.

How are we Different?

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.

What are SouthSide’s Core Company Values?

We are fortunate enough to have achieved significant growth each year. The contributing factors to the company’s success are simple: hard work, the right people, transparency, continuous improvement and genuinely wanting to provide a fair and affordable solution for landlords and tenants.

SouthSide strive to be at the forefront to constantly improve our sector and standards for landlords and tenants. Quite simply…. we are in the property business; however, it is all about the people.

Training and Continuous Professional Development

Education and personal growth are an important part of our culture. We close our office 3-4 Saturdays a year for team training, to develop our team both professionally and personally. We believe that our high team retention is as a result of the ongoing opportunities we can offer.
