The latest statistics from property portal Rightmove have revealed that Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Knaresborough office has been crowned as the most successful estate agent in the area for another year.

During 2021, Dacres was responsible for almost 20% of all sales in the HG5 postcode – where 64 agents marketed a property.

The statistics show that Dacres in Knaresborough consistently sells more homes than any other estate agent in the HG5 postcode – with 28% of the market share in 2020. In 2019 it sold 30% and in 2018 it sold 26%.

Senior Associate Nick Alcock, who is the branch manager at Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Knaresborough office, said: “Our aim is to ensure every client is satisfied with our service. These figures prove that we have successfully sold the most properties in this area, but what they don’t show is why.

“We believe our personal service, local knowledge and professional marketing is what sets us apart from our competitors. I have been with Dacres in Knaresborough for 21 years, and the firm has been based here for 43 years. Our well-known, professional team always goes that extra mile to see a sale through and our clients often choose Dacres, as their friends or family members have recommended us.”

In 2022, of the 17 agents to sell a property in the HG5 postcode, Dacres again secured the top spot, selling 25% of the properties during January and the first half of February.

Nick added: “We are an integral part of Knaresborough’s High Street and the wider community and have powered through the pandemic, helping people who have been dealing with so much uncertainty to secure their dream home. Selling everything from one-bedroom apartments through to grand homes worth over £1 million, we have also helped our clients with mortgage and survey services too.

“Our online profile is as strong as ever, with a very popular website as well as listing on all the major property portals. We also have the benefit of sharing our properties across our network of 19 North and West Yorkshire offices, which also helps to increase their exposure.”

Dacre Son & Hartley’s Knaresborough branch offers sales, lettings and financial services. The office is open six days a week, call 01423 864 126 for more information.
