Residential letting and sales specialists, Linley & Simpson, has boosted its Land and New Homes department with a new appointment.
Lucy Collinge has joined the Ripon-based team of seven as New Homes Marketing & Administrative Executive.
Launched only five years ago with just a single member of staff and six properties, it has seen its new home sales portfolio increase to over 500, with more than three times that number in the pipeline.
Earlier this year it was crowned best in the UK in the residential property industry’s “Oscars”, drawing judges’ praise for the raft of initiatives it has designed to support Yorkshire housebuilders in launching their developments to market.
Prior to her new position with Linley & Simpson, which has 20 branches across Yorkshire and The Humber, Lucy worked for Carter Jonas in its New Homes department in Harrogate.
David Waddington, Director of Land and New Homes at Linley & Simpson, said: “Lucy joins the L&S Land and New Homes team at a time when we are partnering with a record number of developers on sites across North and West Yorkshire.
“She has gained some valuable experience from her previous roles as a sales negotiator with estate agents in Harrogate and Ilkley, and her journey within the property industry continues with us.
“We are certainly looking forward to having her working with us, particularly as we are starting to lead the sales and marketing activities on some exceptional new developments, both small and large scale.”
Lucy said: “I’m delighted to be taking my next step on the reginal property career-ladder with Linley and Simpson’s Land New Homes team, and joining this industry-respected team.
“It is as extremely busy department and I’m looking forward to developing my skills further and learning from my new colleagues.”
