New statistics from property portal Rightmove have revealed that Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Knaresborough office has secured the highest number of property sales in the town for yet another year.

Of the 41 estate agencies which sold properties in 2022 in the Knaresborough area, the town’s Dacres office secure almost 25% of those sales.

Senior associate, Nick Alcock, who is the branch manager at Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Knaresborough office, said: “We sold double the number of properties as our nearest competitor in 2022, and are really proud to have driven these sales forward for our clients.”

In 2021, Dacres was responsible for almost 20% of all sales in the HG5 postcode. Nick added: “We grew our market share by almost 5% in 2022, and consistently sell more homes than any other estate agent in the HG5 postcode year after year.

“It is thanks to our local knowledge, repeat business and talented team that we can deliver these results, whilst always putting our clients’ needs at the heart of what we do. We are committed to a personal service and our professional marketing really helps set us apart. The fact we have 20 other offices across the region is also a unique selling point for our clients and maximises the exposure for all the homes we market.”

Dacre, Son & Hartley has been based in Knaresborough for 44 years and Nick has worked for the business for 27 years. He added: “Many clients come back to us time and time again and they also recommend their friends or family members, which is the ultimate endorsement for us. Selling everything from one-bedroom apartments through to grand homes worth over £1 million, we also provide clients with mortgage and survey services.

“At the moment there is a real lack of available property. Despite the negative press, we have a lot of people actively looking for a new home, so we would encourage anyone thinking of selling to get in touch now for a free market appraisal and get sale ready!”

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