peter's Personal Profile View my company profile
I am Peter Greenwood, founder and driving force at Greenwoods Residential a truly independent agency. I’m passionate about property and extremely focused on attention to detail – especially when your property dream is involved.
My background? 37 Year’s in the Royal Navy working my way up through the ranks and finally retiring as a Commander. Having spent such a long and varied career in such a large organisation, I decided on leaving the RN to become self-employed and for the past 8 years I have steadily built Greenwoods Residential. I have a real passion for property having bought my first home in 1984 and becoming a buy-to-let landlord myself since 1997, I have gained a lot of experience along the way which I apply to all facets of my business. I am very much a hands-on manager and rarely switch off. I am always available on my mobile and I monitor my emails regularly to ensure that I am completely up to date on the sales, lettings and property management aspects of the business. I lead from the front on all tasks and I thoroughly enjoy meeting applicants, landlords and Vendors for viewings or valuations, and I ensure that I personally inspect each of our managed properties at least annually to check for myself before reporting back to the landlord. Above all, making sure that you are kept fully informed about your property and that we are providing the exceptional service that you deserve.
my expertise in the industry
I started my own Estate Agency 8 years ago and have steadily built up Greenwoods Residential sales and lettings over the years. I have a real passion for property having bought my first home in 1984 and becoming a buy-to-let landlord myself since 1997 and I now have a small portfolio of my own rental properties. I was trained initially by the lettings training centre and the wonderful Susie Crolla who is also CEO of Guild of Letting & Management. I am a member or Property Mark, NAEA and TPOS.
