Estate Agency Eyes Major Growth After Becoming An Independent Business

Three months after becoming an independent estate agency, North Residential has opened a second office in Pocklington, East Yorkshire.

The Harrogate-based agency, which rebranded away from Knight Frank after 15 years, says the new branch forms part of its plans for growth.

In September last year, Harlan Pollitt and Daniel Rigg launched the North Residential rebrand after parting company with Knight Frank.

Pollitt commented: “The opening of a new branch in Pocklington fits into our locational criteria as a highly desirable area to live at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds with full coverage of the York area.

“We operate as an independent company with no external funding or debt and, with the best and most motivated team in the business, we are extremely well placed to expand the North Residential brand into more prime locations.

“We anticipate around 60% year-on-year growth with at least three new office openings per annum and are excited to announce further new locations very soon.”

Scott Holley has been appointed to lead the team at the new Pocklington branch. He has more than 20 years’ experience in residential property having held senior roles with Galbraith and Savills.

Pollitt added: “While I have garnered my skillset across several UK locations, my heart belongs in Pocklington where I grew up.

“I am so excited to embed North Residential as a part of the local community, helping residents every step of the way in their next important home move.”
