The 2020 pandemic brought about the most challenging time for many businesses. Rick and Vicky McCann, founding directors of At Home in Edinburgh, decided to ‘beat the challenges’ and invest heavily in their family letting agency business. Rick joins Gillian Semmler on Lets Talk to chat about the significant changes they made to their business during lockdown.

Originally based in Stockbridge, they moved to a larger and more prominent location in Marchmont, as well as completed a full rebranding including a new brand expression, ‘believe in a friendly that works’.

Rick, whose background was not originally in property, tells of his journey and inspiration that led him to setting up At Home in Edinburgh with his wife. He also discusses why their partnership works so well, ensuring successful running of their family business.

Rick also talks about their experience of the capital’s private rented sector this year and the challenges they may face coming into quarter 4.

He also discusses their other business, Certus Keyholding and Property Care, which due to the nature of it can be manged well alongside At Home in Edinburgh.
