Leeds-based City Living specialist Morgans has appointed a new head of sales and lettings.
The firm, which has been established for 20 years and has led the way in the urban revolution in Leeds, has recruited Jeremy Davis, who comes from a retail management background, to manage performance within the sales and rentals teams and to focus on their personal and professional development.
Morgans manages a large portfolio of rental property across Leeds city centre and North Leeds, it also specialises in city apartment sales and development, as well as providing marketing advice.
Managing director Jonathan Morgan said: “We have enjoyed consistent organic growth over a long period of time and we remain massively ambitious.
“We are hugely excited about the next generation of city living, and we also wish to live up to our goals of helping to support every member of our team in becoming the very best they can.
“The property sector has a lot to learn from retail, and we are looking forward to working with Jeremy in bringing his considerable people management skills to bear.”
Since the summer of 2016, Morgans has appointed 10 new members of staff in response to demand. Jonathan added: “During July and August we have seen a 15 per cent increase in the number of sales and lettings enquiries compared to the same period last year.
“The city centre is starting to wake up after a long slumber post-downturn, and Headingley and its surrounds are continuing so see positive change in the post-student landscape.
We are as focused and determined as we have ever been, and are looking forward with a genuine sense of excitement as we start a new chapter at Morgans.”
Morgans manages the largest rentals portfolio of apartments in the city which range in price from £500 to over £2,500 per calendar month.
The firm has a dedicated corporate arm, dealing with businesses relocating staff to Leeds, and a highly experienced sales division which is currently marketing a range of homes suitable for owner occupiers, corporate organisations and investors that range in price from £95,000 to over £700,000.
