Yorkshire letting agency expands with new regional office following raft of acquisitions

A Yorkshire property specialist has expanded its reach throughout the region after a series of independent agency acquisitions.

Linley & Simpson has opened a new office in the market town of Bingley following deals struck with independent agencies Inghams and Henleys Property Group.

Will Linley, chief executive of Linley & Simpson, commented: “We are thrilled to extend our letting and sales expertise into this thriving community, and look forward to helping more and more people move home.

“Although we have a track record for letting and selling homes in this area through our sister offices in Saltaire, Skipton and Ilkley, it is a major step forward for us to have a dedicated presence in Bingley for the first time.

“It is another bullseye location that’s a perfect geographical fit, as it enables us to expand our services and offer unrivalled top-to-tail coverage of this increasingly-popular stretch of the Aire Valley.”

The office move follows the firm’s acquisitions of the lettings book of Inghams as well as Henleys’ letting and sales operations across the region.

The acquisitions – completed for an undisclosed sum – represent the tenth and eleventh to take place since Linley & Simpson secured the backing of private equity investor LDC in June 2018.

Will continued: “We have ambitious growth plans for 2020 and beyond, and are already eyeing further acquisition opportunities across Yorkshire and the Humber, where agencies are of the right size and in the right location for us.

“This is a further signal of the continuing confidence we have in investing in the property sector, and consolidating and widening our presence across the region.”
