About Albany Lettings

Albany Lettings was established in 1995 by Neil Johnston when, after several years of managing his own properties, he decided to offer Landlords the standard of service that he himself would be happy with. From modest beginnings and mainly through word of mouth and referrals, Albany Lettings grew. Before the term “buy to let” was coined, Neil was purchasing and managing properties on behalf of investors, many of whom were Church of Scotland ministers who used their property as part of their pension fund.

In 1999 the opportunity to purchase 168 Bruntsfield Place arose; at that time it was a dilapidated jewellers shop with a one bedroom flat attached at the rear. After a quick makeover and conversion Albany Lettings’ Bruntsfield office was opened, Neil being the sole employee. As they say “the rest is history”. Between 2009 and 2010 the property underwent a major refurbishment and a bright airy and modern office was created; computers and telephone systems were upgraded, and the formerly damp basement converted into a kitchen cum meeting room.

By this time Albany had grown to seven professional and dedicated staff providing landlords with the highest standard of service. Albany is well positioned to proactively meet the challenges of the future and will ensure that we remain at the forefront of the letting industry in Edinburgh by continuing to provide Landlords with the best service possible.

    Great, quick response

    Great, quick response. Kept in contact throughout the process and the person who showed us the property was very helpful and approachable. On this occasion the property wasn’t right for us, but would absolutely hope to have a property with this agency in the future!

    great experience

    The person that showed me around was open, friendly & informative. Exactly what you want from a realtor! It was a great experience.

    great experience start to finish

    We had the pleasure of working with Louise and Albany Lettings and it was a great experience start to finish. We were in the US looking for a flat in Edinburgh and she was communicative and flexible to our needs when it came to viewings and email communication. The process is definitely different than in the US (specifically NY where my partner and I were coming from) but Louise was informative every step of the way and never made us feel like our questions were burdensome. I would highly recommend this letting agency!

    service was exceptional

    We spoke to Finn at Albany Lettings about a property we were interested in. The property did not meet our requirements but the service was exceptional!

    Finn was really friendly and accommodating over the phone, by email, and in person. He did everything he could to help us arranging a viewing quickly and providing us with as much information about the property as he could.

    It’s an extraordinarily busy time for all the agents in the city right now and it must be very stressful for all involved, but Finn was by far the friendliest and most cooperative person that we’ve spoken to across all of our talks with various agents, and we wish that there were more people as helpful as he was!

    The best letting agents

    The best letting agents that my partner and I have ever used. They found us a lovely flat and were always attentive whenever we had problems/ issues. I would recommend to anybody in Edinburgh.

    Good job Louise!

    I had a flat viewing with Louise from AL yesterday in Edinburgh and I really liked her demeanour. She was punctual, courteous and honest. If she didn’t have an answer to my question, she was honest about it and promised to get back on it if things moved forward. She guided me about the various features but also gave me enough space to explore on my own without feeling followed or observed. I really enjoyed my experience and appreciate her quick follow-ups. Good job Louise!

    Cannot recommend highly enough!

    One of the easiest letting agents to deal with! I just moved over here and had a viewing with one of their property managers. So friendly, helpful and responsive and gave us very clear instructions on how to further our application. So much easier to deal with than any of their competitors – which bodes well if I ever have any queries or issues as a tenant with them in the future. Cannot recommend highly enough!
