Since our opening in 2006 as a Specialist Letting & Estate Agency Martin & Co Rochdale and Bury have built a reputation for outstanding customer service and the agent of choice by following Martin & Co UK Ltd brand standards.
Martin & Co have 283 offices throughout the UK!
Martin & Co Rochdale and Bury are Licensed by the Association of Residential Letting Agents, Regulated for Sales & Lettings by The Property Ombudsman and Accredited by Rochdale MBC for YOUR peace of mind and protection.
Primarily letting and selling properties within the North Manchester areas of Rochdale, Bury, Middleton, Heywood, Royton, Oldham and New Moston, we let, sell and manage properties as far North as Haslingden and as far south as Ashton-u-Lyne whilst not forgetting the villages a little closer to home with properties to rent and sell in Littleborough, Milnrow, Shaw, Norden, Bamford, Healey, Shawclough, Whitworth, Wardle, Smithybridge, Newhey, Alkrington, Hopwood and Bacup.
If you have a property outside of these areas, we may have a local Martin & Co office we can refer you to. For example Manchester Central, Stockport, Wilmslow, Prestwich, Chorlton, Huddersfield and Preston with whom we share best practice to help continually improve our service to you.
The Martin & Co “Be Your Own Agent” sales service is proving to be increasingly popular for those vendors wishing to use a LOCAL agent to value, list and market their property, but who are confident enough to progress the sale of their property to completion. What makes this service unique from the plethora of online DIY agents is that if the vendor changes their mind with the Be Your Own Agent option and would prefer Martin & Co to qualify the potential buyers, conduct the viewings, negotiate the offers and progress the sale to completion they can revert to the "Traditional Sales" offering and we will even refund their upfront fee from the % commission at completion...
We even offer a fully managed upfront sales fee option, so the choice really is yours!
Should you wish to discuss the local property market and how our services can be tailored to help sell or rent your individual property, please do not hesitate to contact our Managing Director, Phil Watson MARLA MCMI

David Bentley – Accountant, is extremely qualified with over 20 years experience of book keeping, accounts and more recently and importantly receipting rents, reconsiling our client account 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 / sales practise, new marketing technologies and the law is key to our continued success and a challenge that we whole heartedly accept.
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 (complete), new council offices (complete), new bus and metrolink depot / tram line (complete) and in the pipeline, new department stores, retail outlets, a hotel and opening up the River Roch!
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.
Sat as we are along the M62 commuters can easily get to Manchester or Leeds and there are a number of high performing schools and colleges in the area making it an excellent place for families to live.
