about us

Lawson & Thompson launched as an ambitious start up in 2014, and rapidly grew to become one of the leading property agencies in St. Andrews. We manage a portfolio worth in excess of £25 million - all of which are highly desirable and exceptionally well maintained (view these on the search properties page).

We pride ourselves on the highly responsive, personal service we provide our clients - always going that extra mile. We have an excellent knowledge of the local market, and will advise you every step of the way.

We have the largest Facebook following of any agent in St Andrews, and hold a sizeable mailing list of active buyers and investors.
