Trio of agency staff celebrate 25 years in the same company

Three members of staff are celebrating 25 years with the same company this month. 

Gail Shepherd, Frances Slocombe and Cath Bradbury all started working for Dacre Son & Hartley in 1991, at the Harrogate, Baildon and Bingley offices respectively.

“I started my career in property as a trainee negotiator with Dacres in Harrogate, and over the years took on more of an office manager role. Five years ago I moved across to the Knaresborough branch, where I work as a senior sales negotiator. I can’t be certain on the exact number of house sales I have been involved with over the last 25 years but it must be well over 1,000” explains Gail.

Frances says she started working on a Sunday afternoon as a receptionist. “As my children got older I increased my hours and over the years I have also covered the Saltaire and Bingley areas, as well as being involved with the marketing of newly built homes for a wide range of leading house builders. I now carry out viewings and negotiate offers – but I am still the one who runs to the post box at the end of the day.”

Sales negotiator Cath says: “Whether it’s answering the phone, carrying out viewings, following up on offers or invoicing, no day is ever the same and it’s great to be part of such a busy office.”
