About Linley & SimpsonEstate Agents, Letting Agents West & North Yorkshire | Linley & Simpson

Welcome to Linley & Simpson. Since we first opened our doors in 1997, we have helped more than 50,000 people move home across North and West Yorkshire.

Our team of 150 staff, and an interlinked family of 11 branches, share the same mission:

We give you this assurance by drawing upon this unparalleled expertise and the pool of talent that exists among our team. This ensures we can provide you, whatever your needs, with the very best customer experience in the property world.

Letting is easy with Linley and Simpson

Proud of our Yorkshire roots and values

This has been the hallmark of our service since founding directors Will Linley and Nick Simpson launched our ‘home grown’, independent Yorkshire agency more than 20 years ago

We did so with just two offices in Leeds - Horsforth and Oakwood - and initially focused solely on lettings. But as demand for our services grew, other branches soon followed - and so did our own move into residential sales.

This planned programme of growth saw us expanding first into Harrogate and then Wetherby, Leeds city centre, Wakefield, York, Ilkley, Ripon, Saltaire and, most recently, Chapel Allerton.

This network of offices now extends the length and breadth of North and West Yorkshire, covering the most sought-after places to live.

We offer all types of property including studio flats, luxury apartments, conversions, cottages, terraced houses, townhouses, semi-detached and substantial executive detached houses with rentals ranging from £400 pcm to £4,000-plus pcm; and sale prices between £49,950 to £2.6m.

Our high-profile shopfront premises; contemporary image and design; familiar To Let and For Sale boards; hugely successful website; and personal recommendation combine to ensure that we attract plenty of potential tenants and buyers who can be confident that they are dealing with a reputable agent.



Launching added dimensions to our services

It has also been a natural progression for us not just to extend our expertise into new cities, towns and villages across Yorkshire – but into new services as well.

To ensure we could meet all the needs of our clients, we successfully launched a residential sales department with the aim of bringing our high levels of customer service and results into this sector too.

Our Head of Residential Sales, Mark Christopher, has over 30 years industry experience and only recruits committed and talented estate agents with a proven track record.

We have also added a further dimension to our core services by supporting developers through the setting up of a division specialising in new homes and land acquisition.

Spearheaded by David Waddington and Greg Smallwood, and with its own purpose-designed digital showroom that brings projects to life, the team is fast becoming the go-to specialist in a sector that is witnessing a resurgence here in Yorkshire.

Investing in innovation - and staff

Throughout every part of our company, we are determined to deliver a top quality service to all our clients.

We are continually re-investing in the latest ideas, people, systems and software to ensure that we remain the leader in both the letting and sales markets.

We build trust with our customers through a professional and fair approach that makes moving as easy as possible.

There are no shortage of examples – from breaking new ground in the sector by introducing our popular Live Chat service; to appointing dedicated Move Makers to guide you through – and speed up – the homebuying process.

In addition to our highly-committed lettings and sales teams at each individual location, we have the benefit of a centralised accounts office, based in Leeds and headed by our Accounts Manager Lynne Taylor.

We also have dedicated property managers, a tenancy renewals team and a tenant referencing team. Internal standards are also continually monitored by our in-house operations team.

Multi-award-winning services

Our journey to becoming one of Yorkshire’s leading estate and letting agents has been marked by a clutch of awards for our customer service. This includes being named 2016 Estate Agency of the Year in the first year we entered the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards, run in conjunction with the Yorkshire Post.

Our family have branches has also picked up no fewer than four accolades in the British Property Awards 2017.

Most recently, we were crowned the national winners of the Agents Giving awards to honour agencies who do most to help charities and other good causes in the community.

Ultimate peace of mind

For ultimate reassurance, we are members of ARLA (the Association of Residential Letting Agents), TDS (The Dispute Service) TPO (The Property Ombudsman for Lettings) and were a founder member of the SAFEagent scheme. We are also members of the National Association of Estate Agents.

This means that we are fully accountable for our service levels; our systems are regulated; and all client money is fully protected giving you complete peace of mind.
