Yorkshire’s largest independent estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley, has appointed experienced estate agent, Matthew Fox, to head up its Saltaire office.
Matthew, who grew up in Saltaire and currently lives in Bingley, has spent the last five years working in Shipley for a national estate agency chain.
Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Saltaire office, which has occupied a prominent position on Bingley Road for more than 20 years, sells all types of homes throughout Saltaire and its World Heritage Site, as well as operating in Shipley, Nab Wood, Allerton, Thornton, Clayton, Queensbury, Heaton, Thackley, Idle and Greengates.
Matthew said: “Moving to Dacre, Son & Hartley is an opportunity to join a leading independent estate agent that is very highly regarded in the local area and beyond. The Saltaire office also covers a wide geographical area, which makes this a role with plenty of potential, especially because there is so much demand in the market from homebuyers.
“Most homes are selling in a matter of days at the moment, and first-time buyers are particularly active snapping up three bedroom semi-detached homes. Traditional terraces priced between £150,000 and £300,000, are also highly sought-after, which makes it an ideal time for anyone thinking about selling.”
Patrick McCutcheon, head of residential at Dacre, Son & Hartley, which operates 20 offices across West and North Yorkshire, said: “Matthew brings both experience and good local knowledge to this role, which are both crucial attributes in a fast-moving property market, and we’re pleased to welcome him into our team.”
