Dacre, Son & Hartley has promoted experienced estate agent Mark Kane to head up its thriving Skipton office, which is based in the heart of the town on Sheep Street. Mark has been with Dacres for the last seven years and was promoted to senior associate within the firm just 12 months ago.
Mark said: “Our Skipton office has been an integral part of the town since the mid-60s and has successfully sold and let many thousands of homes throughout the area over the decades. I’m really looking forward to building on over fifty years of success, as well as ensuring we continue to play an important part in the community, sponsoring and supporting lots of local events, sports teams and charity initiatives. The office also plays a key position in our twenty branch network acting as a linchpin between the adjoining offices of Settle, Keighley, Pateley Bridge and Ilkley.
“It’s a landmark office that has recently been refurbished and boasts a five-strong team of hard-working property professionals. Everyone is highly committed to letting and selling a huge range of property from town centre apartments and traditional terraced homes to large country houses in the Yorkshire Dales. I will also oversee the mortgage and survey services we offer our clients.
“Acting for home owners, landlords and tenants throughout Skipton, The Yorkshire Dales and East Lancashire, the towns and villages where our for sale and to let boards are most prominent include Gargrave, Grassington, Hetton and surrounding areas, as well as in Kettlewell and Malham. We’re also busy to the south of Skipton with properties in Silsden, Crosshills, Bradley and Carleton. In East Lancashire we operate in Barnoldswick, Earby, Colne and Salterforth and we plan to extend our geographical reach over the next few years on the back of our extremely competitive fees and market expertise.”
Head of residential, Patrick McCutcheon, said: “Mark is a highly capable estate agent who is both personable and knowledgeable. He understands new development work very well as well as our company’s desire to deliver competitive and effective property marketing with a high degree of professionalism and personal service.”
