Two years after moving into the town of Pudsey, Yorkshire residential sales and lettings specialists, Linley & Simpson, is relocating to a larger, more prominent location.
And the move from Robin Lane to the former Fulton’s Foods premises on Church Lane will see the addition of a dedicated sales division.
The company acquired a foothold in the popular Leeds suburb following its purchase in 2019 of the family-run firm of Flemings and its rental portfolio of more than 330 properties.
Now, two years later, its rentals portfolio has almost doubled to 650, with more landlords continuing to put their properties in the hands of the seven strong Pudsey L&S team led by senior branch manager Rebecca Taylor.
Rebecca said: “Relocating to a bigger office on Pudsey’s Church Lane marks a new and exciting chapter for us, and the additional space has allowed us to bring residential sales in-house.
“This function was previously run from our North Leeds hub and I’m delighted to welcome residential sales valuer Alex Woodhouse to our team. Living locally and having previously worked in Pudsey, he knows the area well.
“The local lettings market in Pudsey is incredibly buoyant at the moment. For every new property we market, there are multiple requests for viewings, often well into double figures.
“The first six weeks of 2021 have been so busy that we have already exceeded our February target. Last year we completed more than 90 new instructions and closed on 185 rental transactions.
“Pudsey is becoming an increasingly popular place to live, particularly for young professionals moving out of the city and looking for a home with an office and garden.
“Property prices, sales and rental, are more competitive than areas such as Horsforth and it has great transport links to Leeds, Bradford and the M62. In addition to Pudsey, our branch also covers Beeston, Armley and Wortley which again are very much in demand.”
