Dacres strengthens lettings business with two new hires

Dacre, Son & Hartley has made two appointments to strengthen its lettings business, with Joanna Speight joining as a senior lettings manager in the company’s Ilkley office and Chelsey Illingworth as a property manager at Harrogate.

Joanna has spent more than two decades working in property rentals in the Wharfe Valley, including eight years at Dacres between 2012 and 2020, prior to our previous lettings division being acquired. She has always lived in the surrounding area, which further enhances her knowledge of the local market.

Chelsey brings over 15 years’ experience in the lettings and property management sector to her new role, after working in both North and West Yorkshire for several well-known property companies.

The lettings team, launched last month, is headed up by Sophie Tillisch at the Harrogate office. She has worked at Dacres for nine years and has more than 15 years’ experience in both property rentals and sales. The fourth member of the team is Neil McGroarty, who heads our York office

Sophie said: “Although it’s early days, our new lettings division is already generating lots of interest from landlords wanting a bespoke range of services from a well-established Yorkshire based estate agent with a large online reach that’s complemented offline by our extensive branch network.

“Establishing dedicated local teams in Ilkley and Harrogate, with the appointment of Joanna and Chelsey, further strengthens our offering in both towns as we begin to build our market share. Crucially, they both bring a wealth of experience to their new roles and have a thorough understanding of the lettings market, making them the perfect people to represent landlords and ensure their investments are successful, at a time when demand from tenants is higher than ever, so they’re very welcome additions to our team.”
