New estate agent Bentley Hurst has opened on Whitworth Street West in Manchester city centre.

It says it is a new breed of estate agent, born from decades of heritage.

The brand is founded by a team of well-established property heavyweights, with vast experience of managing some of the country’s leading residential property agencies, including Reeds Rains and Your Move.

The office will offer sales and lettings services across the city centre and wider Greater Manchester area. The team will also offer auction and conveyancing services, in addition to managing client property investments and mortgage advice.

Bentley Hurst will be marketing new developments, including The King Street Collection – three premium townhouses, located on King Street South, finished to an impeccably high standard with accommodation over three floors and roof terraces.

Other notable listings and developments include Victoria Residence at Crown Street, Manchester. This development offers elegant residential apartments with panoramic views of the city and boasts luxury facilities such as a residents’ lounge, state-of-the-art gymnasium and swimming pool – and The Hallmark, located within the Green Quarter.

Bentley Hurst is building a website with enhanced features, which will enable the booking of viewings and valuations straight into agents’ diaries, and will offer social media boostings when listing property.

The team is made up of highly experienced agents with extensive knowledge of Manchester and its surrounding areas. It will be headed up by James Favas, former Territory Owner at Purple Bricks Manchester, building their biggest portfolio of managed properties from a cold start within two years across the UK, and Jonathan Gold, a property professional of 18 years, with 12 years’ senior level experience in residential estate agency and previous owner of an independent company representing clients and sourcing investment properties to refurbish and sell on.

James Favas said: “We’re proud to be launching Bentley Hurst in Manchester and excited to offer something genuinely unique that sets us apart from other estate agents.

“We are a private independent with a small, carefully curated team, which enables us to offer a bespoke, personal service for our clients, but we’re backed by a team of industry big-hitters, to offer guidance and expertise.

“With some incredibly prestigious developments confirmed and many more in the pipeline, we can’t wait to open our doors and welcome new customers.”
