I have previously rented my property both privately and with other agents and have had mixed experiences with both. In all honesty I just wanted a simple option that offered a decent return without some of the headaches that come with lettings.
I was attracted initially to the Northwood branch after hearing about the guaranteed rent option on the Talksport radio station. After contacting the branch at Southampton, they sent the branch director (Stuart) around for a valuation. He was very through with the options, as well as honest with the current situation market wise - which is much preferable than the phony sales types that only tell you what you want to hear!!!
There wasn\'t any sense of pressure either and was put at ease with the personal approach to the whole process.
After deciding to go with their guaranteed scheme, the rest was relatively simple... they sent around a chap to take photos, advertise etc - all the things that you\'d expect but takes some time to do right and had viewings within a couple of days.
Something I especially liked was that they don\'t just accept the first people that show an interest, and take the time to vet viewers so that they don\'t destroy or neglect the place. I was still living at the property and saw some of the people that came around and was glad to get feedback from the office staff on pretty much everything.
So, if you are looking for what I consider to be a professional, friendly and efficient business then I only have good things to say about Northwood, so much so that I\'m now looking to invest further with them when the right place become available. Peace of mind assured!
