Two property professionals who have worked for estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley for a combined total of 13 years, have been promoted to Associates.

Donna Searle joined the Burley in Wharfedale office of Dacres in 2016, having worked at two other estate agents, helping the area director to successfully increase the office’s market share, before moving across to the Ilkley head office. Donna now supports the management board and has spearheaded several strategic business projects for the firm.

Donna said: “I absolutely love it at Dacres. The teamwork, the ethos and the opportunities for a varied and interesting career are all key reasons for staying with the business for so long. I have been able to implement some challenging, yet exciting projects, helping to bring about positive and sustainable change.”

Dan Elven joined the Bingley office of Dacres in 2017 as Branch Manager, having worked in the property industry for 10 years prior. He has been instrumental in developing Bingley into one of the best performing offices in the company’s 20 branch network, as well as significantly growing its market share. Leading a team of five, Dan knows the market well and understands what buyers are looking for.

Dan said: “With 120 properties currently on our books ranging from less than £50,000 to in excess of £1m for a vast rural family home with land, we have every sector of the market covered. We have a strong family market in Bingley, as well as plenty of first-time buyers who work in Leeds. Our excellent commuter links and schools really appeal, and we are a busy office with a great team and a trusted brand.”

Patrick McCutcheon, Head of Residential at Dacre, Son & Hartley, said: “Dan and his colleagues have helped push our Bingley office to new levels thanks to his high level of customer care and drive. Donna is an invaluable team player, supporting the management board on a number of projects which include spearheading our carbon reduction programme and helping with our latest new office opening in York. Both Dan and Donna are vital members of our business and thoroughly deserve their promotions.”
