Northwood Estate Agents is renowned for its bespoke guaranteed income service, where landlords receive payment regardless of their property being vacant or occupied.
Director Peter Ward explains: “This service has been a strong platform for us to grow into one of the leading agents in the city. Landlords love the security and hassle free approach that it offers and it’s the perfect solution for people who don’t have the time, nor want the risk of managing the property themselves.”
Northwood also offer a range of conventional letting plans and with the sales arm of the business going from strength to strength, the team have recently refurbished their premises in the city centre.
Since opening in January 2007, Northwood has established a real presence in Preston and built a strong reputation for excellent customer service, culminating in receiving several prestigious awards both locally and nationally, as well as accolades from the UK’s largest free customer awards scheme for the property industry.
It’s clear to see that the Northwood team have a real passion for property, and a passion for life in Preston.
Sales manager Thomas Wormald tells me: “We are proud to be celebrating our 10th year in Preston and that we are able to bring the benefits of a local, family run business along with the energy and expertise of a huge national network. Our recent successes are down to our dedication to providing an excellent customer experience that can’t be matched by cut price agents.”
“We love being in Preston, as the city remains committed to welcoming new businesses and investors, small or large, and also offers competitive employment costs and affordable accommodation.”
“Preston is a vibrant and exciting city. With a population of 140,000, it’s growing both physically and in terms of profile. The city has a strong economic and retail base with a reputation as an attractive place to live, work and invest in and has seen major expansion over recent years which is to continue further. We embrace that growth and want our customers to benefit from it.”
Office manager Becky Ward summarises: “Northwood has a fresh new office that is bubbling with character and vibrancy from the staff inside and lots of excitement for the future. Please come in and meet the team, the kettle is on and we are ready to talk property.”
