About Us

At Thomson Residential Lettings we believe that having a simple, modern approach results in the best possible rental experience for both landlords and tenants. At the heart of this philosophy is communication, something that is often lacking in the rental sector but is at the top of the list of needs for clients. We understand this and strive to perform to our own high standards in everything we do. From initial approach through to end of tenancy, we want both landlord and tenant to have experienced a stress free and enjoyable rental.

Owner and Director Neil Thomson has over 20 years experience in residential lettings and over that time he has developed both an extensive knowledge of the rental market and a firm understanding of what it takes to provide clients with the service they desire. Neil has a firm belief that effective communication is the key to a successful tenancy and wants to deliver this with a fresh outlook combined with enthusiasm and professionalism. Whether you are a new landlord, have an existing property but are unhappy with your current managing agent or are seeking your dream home to rent, allow Thomson Residential Lettings to show you how we can make a difference.

Contact us today for an informal initial discussion or a no obligation visit to your property.

Our Team

Neil Thomson

Owner
Our Director Neil set the company up in 2014 after almost 20 years in the letting industry. Having viewed up close the frustrations of the property management process he decided to take the plunge and set up a new business with a strict vision of keeping things simple, transparent, trustworthy and human, with an absolute ban on a sales approach to letting. Starting out fresh and looking to take on property number one was daunting but it has proven to be a worthwhile decision and the pleasure of helping tenants and landlords find their property match keeps him motivated. Neil lives locally to our office and is the father of two daughters who keep him more than busy, although he does enjoy a round of golf and keeps fit by running and regular gym visits.
Jane Robertson

Jane Robertson

Office Manager
Our Office Manager Jane joined the company in 2015 and brought with her a wide range of customer service experience built up in the private sector. She was amongst the first in Scotland to pass her Letwell Chartered Institute of Housing course when the qualifications were announced as part of the regulation of the residential letting industry. Jane is a mother of one and lives locally to the office, she is an expert on all things East Renfrewshire and will be the first to know when a new restaurant or shop is opening and likes to shop locally whenever possible. Based solely in the office, she has complete knowledge of all comings and goings and is a welcome face and voice to all our landlords and tenants. Friendly and personable, Jane is always happy to assist.
Jonathan McLeish

Jonathan McLeish

He is qualified through the Chartered Institute of Housing and keeps control of our inventories, check in and out processes, viewings and property inspections to name only a few aspects of a very varied job. Jonathan is out and about a lot meeting prospective new tenants and keeping a close eye on our existing properties and if you see our company liveried car on the street the chances are it will be him racing to another appointment. A golfer of some repute, Jonathan keeps himself fit and healthy through a range of sporting activities and is the proud owner of Isa the Pug, which takes up any remaining time he and his partner have left at the end of a day.

I have found that Thomson Residential so far in our rental process have achieved the fine balance between professionalism, customer care and the dedication to getting the job done.  The teams open approach makes the whole process work and their pride in doing the job to the end really comes through.

When you walk into the office you still have that open and pragmatic 1 on 1 dialogue, while maintaining a great level of professional judgement and experience.  And also keeping a good level of Scottish sense of humour which also helps to build the relationships!

Would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.
