Colin Chapman has overseen the rental of my property for the passed 5 years, and the eventual sale of my property this year.

After my first meeting with Colin, I was impressed with Northwood's Platinum guaranteed rental scheme as it meant I didn't have to worry about tenants moving in/out of the property, or failure to pay rent on time etc, as it was all covered by the guaranteed rental income. I found Colin's evaluation of the property to be reasonable, and he clearly explained his valuation based on the property's location, and the type of tenant's he would expect to rent the property etc, so it all made sense to me.

Unlike some other agents who I met with, I also found Colin's approach very personable and not at all pushy - allowing me to make my own decision when I was ready.

Throughout the rental period, Colin and the rest of the Northwood team have been extremely helpful in managing the property. They kept me upto date with every incident that occurred, such the latest gas inspection, or any repair work that needed to be done. Colin was extremely helpful in sourcing local contractors to complete any repair work. I am based quite far away from the rental property, so Colin's knowledge of local tradesman saved me a lot of time and also a lot of money as he always managed to get the jobs done for a reasonable price.

When I decided to sell the property, Colin helped me to value the property, and helped me to structure a plan of action in order to make the property easier to sell. Colin explained to me when the best time would be to sell the property, and we devised a plan of home improvements in order to help sell the property.

The property sold in approximately 1 month, and Colin helped to negotiate the price that I wanted for the property.

Colin has continued to keep me in the loop every step of the way, and I am hugely thankful for the support he has given me.

If I was buying, selling, or renting another property in the area I would definitely be getting in touch with Colin.

Thumbs up to Colin and Northwood! :)
