Fast-growing Newton Lettings has secured a lease on new, bigger, premises in Glasgow’s Elderslie Street to cope with the current rise in demand for rental properties. And, in an odd co-incidence, the new premises are within the same block of offices where its Managing Director first got his taste for working in the letting industry, doing work experience with O’Neill Letting.
Riccardo Giovanacci said, “We have been happily based at its Port Dundas Road offices since our buyout last year, but now is definitely the right time to move, so it is a case of successful expansion all round. It’s strange being back here now that time has moved on, but also somehow rather inspiring.
“This year has seen a surge in enquiries from tenants which, in turn, has helped to boost prices. Our portfolio stands currently at just over 600 units let and managed on behalf of around 390 landlords and we have invested consistently in extra staff and technology since the buyout to enable us to provide a better service to our clients.”
