About Evergreen Property
Evergreen Property Limited, is a well-respected Edinburgh Letting Agency which started out as The Pickering Company back in 2010.
Barry Burton, the director of the company, has been a landlord for several years and has always been taken aback by the different levels of service, not only between different agencies but also within a single agency. What landlords and tenants need is a reliable, consistent agent! We offer this.
Evergreen Property offers a bespoke letting agency service, tailored to the individual needs of each landlord. We work with both experienced investors, and people who have found themselves landlords by accident and we are able to hold their hands throughout the process. We have an uncompromising attention to detail, ensuring that the process of getting your property let, runs as smoothly as possible.
We offer traditional values coupled with progressive, forward-thinking solutions. We believe that these two are at ease and totally compatible with each other. Our customer service, based on great relationships, is complemented by the freshest, most modern CRM systems and in-depth market knowledge.
We now offer both long and short let solutions for your properties, (subject to correct permissions being in place) and will help you maximize the return from your property investment.
We now manage properties for landlords on three different continents and we are pleased to offer such an uncompromising service that landlords are confident for us to look after their investments in Edinburgh.
If you would like a FREE no-obligation appraisal of your property or even an informal chat about a property you are thinking of buying, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.

AK — Letting Tenant
“…personal service from someone who actually knows our property”
After a number of dreadful experiences with Edinburgh-based letting agents, working with Barry at Evergreen has been a breath of fresh air. At last a personal service from someone who actually knows our property and pays attention not just to finding tenants, but finding the right kind of tenants. Barry is always very communicative, keeps us up-to-date on everything and ensures we are aware of changes in legislation that might affect us. He answers all queries fully and promptly and we have full confidence in his management of our property whilst we are overseas.

ELEANOR HAYWARD – LETTING LANDLORD
“…takes the hassle out of owning a BTL property”
Evergreen Property manages everything and take the hassle out of owning a BTL property. As an expat investor, it is difficult to oversee UK properties and the requirement for an agent you can trust is paramount. I have worked with Barry from Evergreen for over 5 years. He is diligent, professional, honest and a pleasure to deal with. His communication is excellent, always answering emails/calls 24/7. He has a very good working knowledge of property and the rental market in Edinburgh and the wider Scottish, UK markets. He found tenants for one of our flats within days and the whole experience was effortless. I wholeheartedly recommend Evergreen Property and look forward to continuing to work with Barry in the future.
JAMES H – LETTING TENANT
“…a pleasure to deal with and always responded promptly”
We stayed in both the Citadel Apartments and the Huntly Street apartment. Both were really enjoyable stays. Very comfy, and easy to get around the city from both areas. I came to Edinburgh to look for an apartment to live there and was successful on my second trip. Barry was a pleasure to deal with and always responded promptly to any inquiries and booking was simple and straightforward. Thanks a mil, Barry. 🙂
CHLOE MAHER – LONG TERM RENTAL TENNANT
“one of the most approachable and knowledgeable property people in Edinburgh”
Barry is one of the most approachable and knowledgeable property people in Edinburgh. He makes himself available for both tenants and landlords and goes out of his way to provide excellent service. Much more personal than some of the larger agents in town.
