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".
