Walton Robinson has been established in Newcastle City Centre for over a decade and is the largest independent lettings and property management agency in Newcastle, and the student specialists of the city.

One regional office houses over 30 staff with more National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP) qualifications than any estate or lettings agency branch within a 20 mile radius.

Named after the founding partners, Mark Walton and Marcel Robinson, Walton Robinson was established in April 2001. The company has been solely owned by Mark Walton since 2006.

Offering a full circle service

When first established, Walton Robinson let and managed a portfolio of just 70 properties. Over the years, the business has developed and expanded the services offered as the demand for residential accommodation has increased.

Years of success in the Newcastle property market has resulted in the ‘Full Circle Service’ from our inter-linking departments. Our clients don’t need to go anywhere else: Sales, Lettings, Buy to Let, Refurbishment, Development and Property Management teams all work from our office in prime location on Percy Street in Newcastle City Centre. We deal with everything from a single flat to a large portfolio or purpose built apartment block.

Walton Robinson has a wealth of knowledge in all spectrums of property investment, and a respected reputation for delivering first class service in sales, lettings and buy-to-let investments.

The Newcastle office has seen rapid growth since initiation in 2001 and thanks to prime city centre location and strategic marketing, the company benefits from a big footfall of eager, prospective clients

The student specialists

We have years of experience from involvement in several student schemes in the city centre and surrounding areas including sourcing of sites, consultation, design, letting and management. Our aim is to tailor the developments to meet the needs of the student population and ensure the long-term success of the scheme.

Over the years Walton Robinson has built up relationships with both Newcastle and Northumbria Universities, as well as international academic recruitment agencies who directly contact us to find accommodation for their students.

Our location

Walton Robinson are based in a landmark Grade-II listed three story building in central Newcastle. The Bruce Building, formerly the headquarters of Newcastle Breweries which dates from 1896, has been transformed through a £5m restoration project into one of Newcastle’s most sought-after recent developments.
