It’s our 6th birthday!

It’s our 6th birthday!

30th Jun, 2016

On the 1st July, we celebrated our 6th birthday! It’s been an incredible journey for us. Back in 2010, we kicked things off with our lettings business, before launching our residential sales department three years later. We did our research prior to setting up shop, asking local people what they wanted from a property agent and acting on their feedback. Overwhelmingly, you wanted better communication and that’s what we strive to deliver every day.

We pride ourselves on providing consistently excellent customer service, forming positive relationships with everyone who walks through our door. We offer on-going advice and support to our clients, whether the service we are providing is simply advertising your rental property or you are taking full advantage of our complete property management package. Committed to staying true to our core values, we endeavour to operate effectively in the modern marketplace by embracing technology and ensuring the process of working with us is at your own convenience. You can view properties on an iPad in our Holmfirth office and use our e-signing service to complete your paperwork. We’ll keep you updated about your rental property by text and email to ensure you’re informed about maintenance work before you receive an invoice. We are members of several significant industry bodies, including ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents), APIP (Association of Professional Inventory Providers) and NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents). We are one of very few licensed agencies in the local area.

With extremely high standards of professionalism, we provide an ethical, tailored service to meet the changing needs of our clientele. The majority of our new clients have been referred to us by existing clients who have been delighted with the service we have provided. At just 13 weeks, we have the lowest average selling time of all other Holmfirth estate agents and since opening in 2010 we have successfully claimed 100% or all proposed bond deductions for our landlords. As a friendly and expert team managed by founder and owner Amy Wray, we always go the extra mile. With a passion for property that runs through the Applegate ethos, Amy built the business from the ground up, starting out quite literally in a back bedroom.

The company is now based in a bespoke office in Holmfirth, the design of which is recognised nationally for it’s uniqueness within the industry. Our office features a mix of antique and contemporary furniture with a coffee machine in the client seating area, promoting a relaxed atmosphere and a ‘family dining’ feel in the main business area, where we really do feel like a strong family network. Applegate has won a number of awards acknowledging the achievements of Amy and the team, including ‘Regional Agency of the Year 2015’ and ‘Letting Agent of the Year 2015’. Amy herself has been recognised as 'Young Business Woman of The Year' and more recently 'Property Business Woman of The Year’. We are looking forward to seeing what the next 6 years brings!
