Dacre, Son & Hartley appoints David Simms to head up Guiseley office

Yorkshire estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley has appointed David Simms to head up the firm’s Guiseley office.

David, who lives locally in the town, brings a wealth of experience and local knowledge to the role after previously working at another Guiseley estate agent for six years. Prior to his appointment at Dacres, he worked for a national estate agency group in North Leeds.

In his new role he will be responsible for heading up Guiseley’s residential sales team, which sells all types of homes, ranging from apartments through to farms and country houses, throughout Guiseley and its surrounding towns and villages including Hawksworth, Yeadon, Rawdon, Apperley Bridge and Carlton.

David said: “As a Guiseley resident who has spent many years working in the local property market, this is a superb opportunity to join a longstanding company with a strong reputation.

“The Guiseley office sits in a prominent position, right in the heart of the town centre, and has an established team in place selling homes across a wide geographical area and at all price points, which all added to the appeal of this role.

“I’m also joining Dacres at a particularly busy time for the local property market. The pandemic has made a lot of people reassess their property priorities, so we’re currently seeing very high demand for good sized family homes with gardens.

“Plus, the stamp duty holiday has also encouraged a lot of people to move home earlier than they might have been planning on, which has created a major shortage of homes for sale in the local area.”

Patrick McCutcheon, head of residential at Dacre, Son & Hartley, added: “David is a knowledgeable and experienced estate agent who knows the local market inside out, which made him the ideal person to head up our Guiseley office.”
