After launching a new residential lettings and property management division earlier this year, we've now expanded the service into the Aire Valley and appointed Luke Parkin as lettings manager for the area.

Luke brings a wealth of experience to the role and most recently worked for a well-known lettings agency in Leeds city centre. He lives locally in Shipley and is Bradford born and bred, which further enhances his knowledge of the local market.

In his new role, Luke is based in Dacres’ Bingley office and will oversee the growth of the company’s rentals portfolio throughout the town, as well as in the neighbouring areas of Saltaire, Baildon, Keighley and all their surrounding towns and villages. Services on offer to landlords include both a fully managed offering and a tenant sourcing service.

Dacres launched its lettings division in early February, initially specialising in high quality and premium rental property in towns and villages surrounding its offices in Harrogate, Ilkley and York. Dacres previously had an established lettings division that managed more than 600 homes, before selling it in 2020.

Luke said: “This is an opportunity to further my career at a well-established and highly reputable estate agent, in an area that I know very well, which all made it an appealing move. It’s also exciting to be involved in the launch of a new lettings division at an early stage, as we begin growing our portfolio and market share, which is another challenge that I’m looking forward to.

“Even though it’s early days, there’s already lots of interest from landlords who are keen to hear what we can do for them in the Aire Valley. This is partly down to our bespoke range of services, as well as a large online reach, which is complemented offline by our extensive 20-branch network.”

Patrick McCutcheon, head of residential, said: “Our lettings division has been particularly well-received in the other areas we’re currently offering the service in, so expanding into the Aire Valley was a natural next step. We’re very pleased to welcome Luke to Dacres to grow our client base in the area. There’s no doubt Luke will do a great job representing landlords and ensuring their investments are successful.”
