Press release: Friday 7th July 2017: Northwood Oldham acquire Peapod Lettings and Estates
Northwood Oldham have completed their first acquisition as they continue to expand their lettings and estate agency business across Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside.
The deal has seen the award-winning lettings business acquire an almost 200 strong property portfolio and take on an additional two experienced lettings agents to join the seven strong team at Northwood Oldham.
Completion of this acquisition follows hot on the heels of the expansion of the business into its newly fitted-out offices on Lees High Street last month.
Peapod Lettings and Estates had enjoyed ten successful years selling and renting properties predominantly in Shaw and Royton under the leadership of owner Anthony Bommer. Anthony has sold the letting and estates portfolio in order to focus on his financial services business and his staff Lyndsey Wild and Emma Street have joined the Northwood team.
Commenting on the acquisition, Northwood Managing Director Mike Procter said “This acquisition and our continued plans to expand by further acquisition and organically, places us firmly on the path towards becoming the key player for residential property lettings and sales in this area committed to exemplary customer service and compliance. I am delighted to welcome Lyndsey and Emma into the Northwood family and look forward to meeting the tenants and landlords they have built great relationships with in the coming weeks.”
Anthony Bommer said: “I and my team at Peapod have spent many years nurturing the business into a successful, well-respected lettings and estate agency. When I decided to focus attention on my financial services business I sought a buyer who would not only let me realise the value of assets, but inspire confidence that Peapod landlords and tenants would continue to benefit from the best possible customer service. Northwood’s whole business model is founded on delivering just that.”
Northwood was established over 20 years ago in Portsmouth. The franchise now boasts a network of almost 100 offices across the UK, many award winning for customer service. Their industry leading unique Guaranteed Rent product is currently enjoyed by almost 20,000 landlords nationally, with over 57,000 rental properties managed by the PLC Group as a whole. They are also one of the very few letting agents who have all their tenancy and landlord agreements approved by Trading Standards and the only UK letting agent to offer in house legal advice to landlords from their in house lawyers.
