There’s a close network of Martin & Co estate agent offices in Berkshire, with Reading, Maidenhead, Bracknell, Wokingham & Caversham all working together to provide a great service for anyone looking to rent, buy or sell in the County.
Our office is a member of NALS (The National Approved Letting Scheme) and the Property Ombudsman (previously known as the OEA).

For Landlords and Landladies: Our typical tenants would be working professionals, corporate clients, students and families. We are often seeking studio/1 bedroom flats which we find are always in high demand and tend to let very quickly. We benefit from a professional portfolio of Landlords who are experienced in lettings, as well as professional buy to let investors.

Other areas that tenants may seek to rent homes in through our office include Caversham, Lower Earley, Earley, Shinfield, Woodley, Tilehurst and Calcot. Students who are attending Reading University are therefore looking for student accommodation/student housing.
