Manning Stainton’s newly opened Garforth branch has got off to a flying start, selling its first ever property in less than two days from instruction.

The latest addition to the agents’ network of 18 high street branches agreed a sale for the three bedroom semi in South Milford in just 36 hours, thanks to the proactive work of the Garforth team.

Branch Manager Steve Riley said: “What a fantastic way to announce our arrival in Garforth. We didn’t even have time to put our for sale board out before an offer was received and accepted.”

For Elizabeth and Michael Sibson the rapid sale has left them gobsmacked.

“I thought our sales negotiator Andrea was joking when she called to say they had a buyer but clearly not,” said Elizabeth. “It just goes to show the power of the Manning Stainton brand, which is why when they opened in Garforth we had absolutely no hesitation in instructing them.”

Elizabeth added: “From a sellers point of view their experience and professionalism is invaluable. We could not be happier.”

The Garforth branch already has almost 30 properties on its books, a figure which Branch Manager Steve says is sure to increase as the key spring selling period approaches.

He explained: “Judging by the number of valuations the team are being invited to carry out and the increasing demand for houses in this area I am expecting a rapid period of growth. Our message is clear, we are open for business at times when others are not.”

The new Garforth office of Manning Stainton at 34 Main Street, Garforth is open seven days a week from 8am–8pm. Call 0113 2878 790 or email garforth@manningstainton.co.uk
