YORKSHIRE'S biggest residential letting specialists, Linley & Simpson, has promoted Paul Bridgeman to be the new manager of its Ilkley branch.
Paul, aged 30, has worked for the agency for nearly six years and was previously deputy manager o
He said: "I am looking forward to building on the platform that has been created since Linley & Simpson first opened its doors in the town, and taking it into a new era as demand for rental properties in the town continues to outstrip supply.
"The branch has an expanding lettings portfolio to manage - in one of the country's most sought-after areas in which to live - and I relish the chance to contribute to its future success."
He added: "I've been fortunate to learn the business from the ground up with an agent which has achieved more than 30,000 lets. I look forward to transferring this knowledge and insight to the new role."
Will Linley, Director of Linley & Simpson, said: "Paul brings a wealth of added expertise and enthusiasm to our first-rate team in Ilkley.
"We try to promote from within our existing pool of staff talent wherever possible and are delighted to hand Paul this new role as he progresses his career with us."
Paul, originally from Portsmouth, was educated in Ipswich and moved to Yorkshire after completing his degree in Quantity Surveying at Nottingham Trent University - where his passion for property was first kindled.
Ilkley is one of nine interlinked offices in Linley & Simpson's nine-strong Yorkshire network. Other bases are at Horsforth, Roundhay, Leeds city centre, Harrogate, Wetherby, York, Wakefield and its newly-launched office in Ripon. It was recently crowned Best Medium Sized Agent in the North of England in the 'Letting Agent of the Year' awards - the industry's very own 'Oscars'.
