YORKSHIRE'S biggest residential letting specialists, Linley & Simpson, has appointed Paul Mitchell as the new manager of its Horsforth branch.
He joins the company - which has a network of nine offices across North and West Yorkshire's prim
And the 27-year-old Leeds University geography graduate can certainly vouch for the area's appeal - his appointment has coincided with his own move to set up home in Horsforth.
Paul, who manages a team of nine staff and a growing portfolio of properties, replaces Anthony Metcalfe, who has moved to the company's newly-launched Ripon branch.
He said: "I am delighted to be part of such a successful and multi-award winning team, and look forward to contributing to the company's future success.
"Horsforth was the platform for the launch of Linley & Simpson 15 years ago and has played a key role in its growth ever since.
He added: "Leeds city centre properties remain popular but there is a noticeable trend which is seeing more and more people migrate to Horsforth as their next move.
"And that is being translated into a widening gap between the number of tenants and properties available."
Leeds-born Paul has spent the last eight years in the lettings sector, his latest position being with a city centre rental specialist. He also holds a Postgraduate diploma in Real Estate and Property Management from Salford University.
Linley & Simpson director Nick Simpson said: "Paul brings to Horsforth wide-ranging expertise of the Leeds residential letting market and, being part of the local community himself, is well placed to offer the best possible insight to landlords and tenants alike."
The branch links closely with all the other eight, but has particularly close links with the Ilkley office with the two teaming up to offer consistent coverage across the whole of the Wharfe Valley.
