September Events in East Renfrewshire Posted: 1st September 2017

We don’t know where summer disappeared to here at Nicol Estate Agents, what with us being so busy opening our Clarkston branch but we hope you have had a brilliant one! There is certainly a lot on offer to keep us busy as we head into autumn and we have rounded up the best events happening this September, courtesy of the ever-helpful What’s On East Renfrewshire.

We have had a very busy time ourselves, getting our new Clarkston shop ready that recently opened at 1 Helena Place, Busby Road, G76 7RB – a very exciting time for us indeed! We are very much looking forward to reaching even more customers and meeting the increasing demand we have enjoyed in East Renfrewshire to date. To celebrate we are also offering a special discount deal, with 50% off our standard selling fees to home sellers in the area – more information here!
