Two property professionals who work for estate agency firm Dacre Son & Hartley, have been promoted.
Chris O’Mahony, who heads up the firm’s Pateley Bridge and Ripon offices joined the firm nine years ago. He has been promoted to Senior Associate. Mark Kane who joined Dacres three years ago to manage the Baildon office, has been promoted to an Associate.
Patrick McCutcheon, head of Residential Sales at Dacre, Son & Hartley said: “Both Chris and Mark are extremely knowledgeable and professional and have a strong track-record for delivering excellent customer service as well as managing teams really effectively.
“Both have won our employee of the year award, which recognises members of our team that go above and beyond their everyday role to achieve excellent results, and both thoroughly deserve their promotion.”
Chris said: “Having managed a large geographical area that covers the outlying and surrounding villages around Harrogate, Ripon and Nidderdale for almost ten years, I have gained an invaluable understanding of the marketplace and a great sense of what buyers are looking for. One of the best parts of my job is managing a team of fourteen of the finest property professionals in Yorkshire.
“Later this month we will be opening an office in Thirsk and I am very much looking forward to all of the opportunities our expansion into this area will provide. It’s been a busy start to the year in North Yorkshire, with plenty of quality buyers searching for a new home, so we are looking for more properties to bring onto the market in order to meet this demand.”
Mark said: “I started my career in property over ten years ago and moved across to Dacres to head up a thriving office in Baildon. Managing a team of seven who all work incredibly well together to deliver the very best levels of service to our clients, is incredibly rewarding.
“Dacres is a great firm to work for, it recognises hard work and good performance which in turn ensures that the best people remain at the company delivering a consistent level of service that helps to keep the brand as strong as ever.
“The market in our area is continuing to perform well, but there are still not enough homes – particularly those priced in the mid-market bracket – available for sale. Some people may be waiting until after the election, but we would encourage anyone who is considering a sale later this year to get in touch now for a free market appraisal.”
