Digital-led letting agency expands in Darlington with new office and staff
North East letting agency My Property Box has expanded its team and office footprint.
The Darlington based company recruited two new employees and secured additional space at Business Central to facilitate future growth.
One of the newcomers, Adam Boyd, was hired for the role of maintenance manager.
My Property Box was founded in 2012 and has grown, according to MD Ben Quaintrell, by embracing digital marketing and technology with the launch of an online portal for landlords.
The company has also worked to drive its services using social media.
Ben said: “High street agents are unfortunately becoming a thing of the past. We were the first letting agency to launch in Darlington that wasn’t on the high street; the industry has gone online and we’re benefitting from being in the perfect environment.
“We wanted a modern office which is why we chose Business Central initially because there’s a synergy between the centre and ourselves, and it’s also well located being next to the station and in the middle of town.”
He continued: “And we now have two offices within the business centre – one will now exclusively be a department that will only deal with landlords and the other will be focused on dealing with tenants.”
