Estate agent on the move to new HQ

Leeds-based estate agent Manning Stainton has moved to a bigger head office to house its expanding team which has grown by 10% over the past 12 months.

The group’s new office is in Caledonia House on Lawnswood Business Park and will be home to 70 employees.

The new office will also provide enough space to allow the business to continue its expansion plans, following a major acquisition last year which saw it acquire two of Lancashire’s best known estate agents Ryder & Dutton and Mortimers.

The Manning Stainton, Ryder & Dutton and Mortimers brands were all retained but joined together under an umbrella company, the Northern Estate Agencies Group, which is headed up by Manning Stainton’s managing director, Mark Manning.

Manning said: “Our head office in Horsforth had simply become too small to accommodate our growing team and we needed to move to a bigger premise to give us the space we need both now and in the future.

“The new office is large enough to comfortably accommodate our central team and has multiple meeting and breakout spaces that our teams can use to meet, train and relax in, all complete with bespoke artwork to reflect the importance of our people and values.

“We’re looking forward to further developing the newly formed Northern Estate Agency Group and our new office gives us the space we need to achieve our future business objectives.”

Manning Stainton has 17 sales and letting branches across Leeds, Wetherby and Wakefield. The company also operates Fine & Country, its specialist division that deals with high-value and unique properties.
