Newton is a modern, fresh property management company covering Central & North of Scotland with its head office in Glasgow and a satellite office in Aberdeen City Centre. Newton have a team of 5 Directors and 40 property professionals who manage the factoring and letting needs of over £2billion worth of residential properties throughout Scotland.
We are an owner-managed business; our Managing Director and founder, Stephen O’Neill, has operated in the sector since 1971. Stephen is passionate about ensuring excellent customer service, financial transparency and integrity are at the core of everything Newton do.
Newton is a firm that holds excellent customer service, financial transparency and integrity in high regard and has in place a strong management team to support Stephen. Newton’s Board of Directors includes Derek MacDonald, who heads up Factoring, William Cowie, Director of Finance and Newton has recently benefited from the addition of young O’Neill; Kirsten O’Neill, a fastidious character, whose primary focus is operations, HR and staff training.
Newton expanded to the North of Scotland in September 2015, when it merged with Watt & Co Property Management. The Aberdeen office is headed up by Ross Watt and his team of four property professionals who ensure that clients benefit from a National company, with a local feel. Watt & Co & Newton share almost identical business philosophies, making this union a perfect fit for all clients.
The company, launched in 2001, initially as a property factor, with Stephen O’Neill strongly believing that the sector needed a bit of a shake-up.
Co-Director Derek MacDonald joined the business in 2003 to focus and build on the changes which Stephen was driving forward with factoring. Derek has built up tremendous expertise in legislation and compliance matters and has previously held the office of President of our National Association, PMAS.
As property factors we are attentive, friendly, cheerful but most importantly we get the job done in an honest way. During 2015 we have increased our factored portfolio to 15,000. A merge with Watt & Co and acquisition of Greenhome Property Management has seen Newton achieve an impressive 87.5% rate of growth to our factored portfolio
We also operate a successful residential letting department. We strive to be the best and continuously seek to improve what we do. Our letting department is headed up by our experienced Associate Director, Riccardo Giovanacci. We are friendly, if not charming, hardworking and our aim with our unique approach is to be the best in the sector.
At Newton we are focussed on delivering a first class service and have our clients and customers do the “positive” talking.
