Since our opening in 2006 as a Specialist Letting Agent in Rochdale, we have quickly built a reputation for outstanding customer service by following Martin & Co UK Ltd brand standards.
More recently we have been accepted to become a Licenced Member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) providing our Landlords with further proof and reassurance that their investments & rents are in safe hands. Martin & Co Rochdale & Bury is also a member of the government approved Ombudsman for Letting Agents and Deposit Protection Schemes.
As innovators we were the first agent in North Manchester to provide rent guarantees as standard for our managed properties and have continued to lead the way whilst focusing upon professional standards, staff training / development, communication and service.
Primarily managing properties within the North Manchester areas of Rochdale, Bury, Middleton, Heywood, Royton, Oldham and New Moston we let and manage properties as far North as Blackburn and as far south as Ashton-u-Lyne whilst not forgetting the villages a little closer to home with properties to rent in Littleborough, Milnrow, Shaw, Norden, Bamford, Healey, Shawclough, Whitworth, Wardle, Smithybridge, Newhey, Alkrington, Hopwood and Bacup.
By covering such an area it is important that we work closely with other local Martin & Co offices such as Manchester Central, Stockport, Altrincham, Prestwich, Chorlton, Huddersfield and Preston sharing quality tenants and best practice to continually improve our service. We also share local contractors to find the best deals, highest quality and lowest prices for our landlords.
Landlords, should you wish to discuss your individual requirements please do not hesitate to contact our Managing Director, Phil Watson. Phil is a qualified member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the Charter Management Institute (CMI).
Unlike estate agents in Rochdale, we are a specialist letting agent and focus only on lettings.
A Professional Service from a Professional Organisation
Ps - We will market your properties on all the major web portals including Rightmove, Zoopla, FindaProperty, Primelocation, PropertyLive (the ARLA Property Portal) and not forgetting the most visited Specialist Letting Agent site in the UK... Martin & Co
Phil Watson - our astute Managing Director. A landlord himself for over ten years, he has completed the 12 month Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) Technical Award in Residential Lettings & Property Management and is a full member of ARLA / the National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP). More recently he completed his Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management & Leadership at Liverpool Hope University and is now a qualified Member of the Chartered Management Institute. His career began in the Royal Air Force, followed by several years working within the Telecommunications Industry in a strategic management role. Following a number of bad experiences at the hands of estate agents 'managing' his properties, he decided to follow his passion for property investment and set up in business as a Specialist Letting Agent (not an estate agent dabbling in lettings whilst looking to see themselves through a quiet period of sales...)
Corelia Maskell-Mosely - Operations Director, is a qualified member of ARLA, has over twenty years experience in lettings and property management (we are not allowed to say exactly how long this experience is) and provides a wealth of knowledge to the business.
David Bentley – Accountant, is extremely qualified with over 20 years experience of book keeping, accounts and more recently and importantly receipting rents and paying our landlords / contractors!
Martin & Co employ dedicated Administrators, Lettings Negotiators, Property Managers and Property Management Assistants. Each have a wealth of local knowledge and regularly attend both internal and external Martin & Co UK Ltd training courses.
Keeping up to date with the local market, lettings practise and law is key to our continued success and a challenge that we whole heartedly accept. Compare this to local Estate Agents who dabble in Lettings.
By adhering to the above we will continue to provide the high levels service our clients have come to expect.
North Manchester, Rochdale, Middleton & Bury in particular have it all; countryside, green open spaces with lovely parks and walks in addition to great connections via public transport and the M60/62 to Manchester / Leeds.
There are several plans afoot for exciting new developments in the area which will bring fresh opportunity and people to the locality. For example the proposals to redevelop part of Rochdale Town Centre have just secured a £250 million injection of funding. The plans include a new leisure centre, new council offices, new bus and metrolink depot / tram line (all currently under construction) and in the pipeline, new department stores, retail outlets and a hotel.
For the moment the £315 million, 420 acre Kingsway Business Park is proving to be one of the major new employers in the area with Vindon Scientific, Takeuchi Mfg and CR Laurence employing countless professionals. The park is currently under construction and has 30 hectors of natural corridor space which promotes the natural diversity of the habitat.
The redevelopment of The Rock in Bury with its cinema, bowling, shopping and restaurants has also helped to breath life into the area and the expansion of the metrolink for access to Manchester City Centre and Oldham can only help to bring wealth to the area as those City workers who prefer to commute rather than live in the City are drawn to the high quality and affordable accomodation available here.
Martin & Co Rochdale gained Miller Homes Approved Agent status at this development in February 2011 and have since become the agent of choice.
*** Phase 3, Asscher House has now launched and will be completed during summer 2013 ***
Should you wish to discuss the apartments and qualify for additional discounts, please contact our Managing Director, Phil Watson at your earliest opportunity.
Sat as we are along the M62 commuters can easily get to Manchester or Leeds and there are a number of high performing schools in the area making it an excellent place for families to live. For this reason our 3 and 4 bedroom properties are in very high demand (we currently have a waiting list of qualified tenants).
