A residential property expert has returned to her South Yorkshire heartland to head up Linley & Simpsonís new Sheffield branch.
The move for Penistone-born Kelly Boot comes after the regional sales and lettings specialist recently acquired two long-established independent city letting agents - Lewis Wadsworth and Sheffield Residential.
Kelly, who will be based with her team of seven in the former city centre offices of Lewis Wadsworth in Queen Street, began her career in the property sector as an administrator with a Wath-upon-Dearne lettings agent.
After becoming its manager and leading a small team, she moved to a bigger firm, first as a sales negotiator then progressing to lettings manager.
Her previous role before joining Linley & Simpson was as an executive branch manager with a national estate agent chain in Leeds city centre, where she managed a team of nine and looked after large portfolio landlords and investors.
Nick Simpson, Linley & Simpson co-founder and its CEO, said:
Linley & Simpson has 22 branches located across North, South, East and West Yorkshire, and The Humber.
