  • Over 10,000 landlords benefit from Northwood’s Guaranteed Rent service
  • Northwood has a 20 year history of providing genuine guaranteed rent
  • It’s not an insurance product with exemptions, clauses and exclusions

A unique network

Matt joined the team many (many!) moons ago as our window cleaner! Fast forward 15 years and he now manages the day-to-day running of the business as Operations Director. Aligned with Laura’s founding vision of providing better service to landlords in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, he has a vested interest in best practice and achieving results.

We recruit staff locally – who are available to speak with over the phone, some in several languages (including Doric!), or meet in person – and train them thoroughly through our national training program so they have the skills to successfully manage your property. Each qualified Property Manager has completed the Letwell training programme, recognised by the Scottish government.

A name people recognise

With a national network of local experts, selling your property through Northwood really does allow it to stand out from the crowd.

As standard, your rental will be featured on the key national portals. This includes the likes of Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket which are some of the biggest in the UK, gathering millions of unique website views every month. They also benefit from multi-million pound marketing campaigns, featuring hundreds of thousands of properties collated via reputable estate agents.
