The HMO Letting Agent
Meet The Owner –
Vikki Marie Bond, MARLA – I have 20+ years letting experience , I am the director of Rooms to Let North East.
Some of you know as Rooms to Let Sunderland. We have now expanded into more areas and have decided to move forward with the name change.
Rooms to Let North East is a specialist Room Let agency in the North East of England.
Rooms to Let North East provide accommodation for young workers, professionals, contractors, NHS staff and students.
As well as Room Lets , we provide single let accommodation for every step of renting. From apartments to family homes. Most of our tenants stay with us and graduate through to the homes they require. Six month lets to long term homes.
I started my property career in 1999, working within a busy estate agents office. Letting and managing property became my full time career in 2005 and in 2010 I invested in my education with MOL ( though ARLA -Now Property Mark) to keep updated with the ever-changing legislation and since then, I have continued to maintain my continued professional development each year.
I have had a long career in property and have been involved in all areas of property rental including experience of serviced accommodation units. I started with HMOs for only students , then worked with homeless and vulnerable tenants and finally Professional and working tenants. The majority of our properties now are occupied by professionals, workers and NHS.
We also supply rooms to Students and Postgrads throughout the North East.
We offer single let properties to Housing benefit tenants . Due to restrictions in Insurance , we are unable to offer shared accommodation to Housing benefit/ Universal credit.
As well as managing and letting HMO properties in Sunderland, Durham, Newcastle and Darlington. We also help landlords bring their tired HMO Properties up to current standard. To attract the modern market. Been involved in a number of refurbishment projects of HMO property and single lets across the North East. Properties are transformed to high standard and long lasting to withstand turn overs.
Properties sourced are in high demand areas of the North East and to the size and requirements of both kind of lets. The aim is to provide an excellent standard of accommodation with the highest standards of safety and security.
Away from work i can be found exploring , love nature, walks, being in the middle of nowhere. Enjoying green space, water, mountains and countryside.
Work hard week to week to find perfect places for my tenants. I am blessed and grateful to receive so many referrals for accommodation in the North East.
I have helped thousands of people over the years. I have met some fantastic people. I do go above an beyond to help people relocating with their work to the North. It can be scary and daunting not knowing what areas are safe . Especially when working shifts for NHS.
We take time in helping our tenants in finding the perfect place. Its why we get so many positive referrals
Its not just a business, but a way of life now 🙂
