    Why Walton Robinson?
    Walton Robinson has been established in Newcastle City Centre for over a decade and is one of Newcastle's biggest independent property agents. 

    One branch houses over thirty staff with more National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP) qualifications than any estate or lettings agency branch within a 20 mile radius.

    Walton Robinson is different- with our full workforce together rather than spread between separate branches, each department is continually in close communication with one another. 

    With our entire staff in one office, over several different departments, Walton Robinson has implemented integral systems to successfully maintain organisation and communication between all departments.

    • We will then make you an appointment to come back, sign the contract and pay the remainder of the deposit.
    • Before we hand the keys out we need all paperwork, all references and all payments completed by every tenant in the group. We also need your first months rent payment. We will give you a standing order mandate to arrange the remainder of the monthly payments.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      proactive, efficient, friendly and capable
      "I have been a landlord in Newcastle for over 10 years. Throughout that time I have used a number of agents to both let and manage my property. I have been particularly impressed with Walton Robinson over recent years; they have consistently quickly found tenants and the managed service has improved beyond all recognition. Jo-Anne Lacewood is the current property supervisor of my property and she is first rate; proactive, efficient, friendly and capable. Living at the other end of the country, I am confident she looks after my property almost as good as I would were I in the area. Recommended."  Mr Thorndyke, Walton Robinson Landlord.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      My apartment was let within three days
      "I own a city centre apartment that has been vacant for 2 months. I tried various letting agents with no luck and called Walton Robinson. My apartment was let within three days. I have never come across a more reliable and friendly service. I can not recommend Walton Robinson enough. You can trust them with your property and expect professionalism and efficiency. I high recommend using them, and will continue to use them in the future"  C.Davidson, Walton Robinson Landlord.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      all encompassing service
      "Walton Robinson is providing me with an all encompassing service where properties are sourced, refurbished and furnished. Last year we purchased, refurbished and furnished in excess of £750,000 worth of property. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Walton Robinson to anyone looking to invest in property in and around Newcastle. Walton Robinson, has also fully Let and Managed my properties since 1998." Doug Scott, Walton Robinson Landlord.

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      The contracts and forms were super clear
      "I used Walton Robinson to look for a flat in my second year of university and they couldn't have done any more to help. I emailed them beforehand with the specification of what we were looking for, and they replied with loads of excellent suggestions. We whittled these down to around 5 properties, and we went to look round them all in one morning in their super comfy people carrier. The lady who showed us around knew absolutely everything about the properties and answered any queries we had. All the properties were perfect and we could have easily chosen any of them. We decided on one and signed up the same day. The contracts and forms were super clear and everything was explained in normal language. The admin fees were good compared to other agencies."  Jon Dell, Walton Robinson Tenant
    • Tenant Testimonial

      The staff were friendly
      "I have recently signed a contract for the next academic year with Walton Robinson. The staff were friendly and took into account all our requirements of the property we wanted and found several fitting the specification. On viewing the prospective properties they were all to a high standard and of good value for money. Furthermore, Walton Robinson were understanding of my personal circumstances, that I was on placement when my second deposit payment was due, hence they rearranged a suitable date for payment upon me arriving back in Newcastle. I would recommend Walton Robinson to other individuals and thank them for helping me find my ideal property to let." Rebecca Vernon, Walton Robinson Tenant
    • Tenant Testimonial

      genuinely welcoming, easy going and helpful
      "I have dealt with a few estate agents in the last 8 or so years and honestly Walton Robinson have been the friendliest, most communicative agent that I worked with. I had two viewings to the property that I now reside in, as well as went into the office two or three times, as a result I met a few of the staff that work there. Each and everyone of them that i dealt with was so genuinely welcoming, easy going and helpful. It never felt like an uncomfortable or formal affair. I have absolutely no complaints. Not only but even when I called to ask certain questions the person on the end of the phone sourced out the information I needed, rather than just taking a message for someone to call me back.All round, by far the best service from an estate agent I've ever received and such a warm introduction to Newcastle."  Jodie Bowyer, Walton Robinson Tenant
