Additions an asset to firm
THIS month Trading Places is happy to announce the recruitment of Dawn Slater as manager of its Urmston branch.
Dawn has more than 20 years’ experience within estate agency, bolstering the company with more experience and professionalism.
Dawn previously owned Slater Barlow, one of Urmston’s market leading estate agents, for nearly two decades.
Dawn said: “I was really excited to get back into estate agency so when Steve Cox, director of Trading Places for over 19 years, approached me to join his team, I didn’t think twice.
“Steve has built up his Stretford office to great success and he was one of our main rivals when he opened his Urmston office in 2002. In my opinion Trading Places has a first-class reputation for customer service and Steve has instilled this is all his team; it’s not just about selling quickly, it’s also about achieving the best price for clients.”
Trading Places has also appointed Michael Booth as branch manager in the busiest of its three branches, Stretford.
Having previously worked for many years in the industry, Michael has a wealth of experience in both the domestic and commercial marketplace. He will play a key role in enabling Trading Places to maintain and build upon its position in the local area.
Michael said: “I moved to Trading Places because I recognised that it is a company that is constantly trying to differentiate itself. It is important for me to work for a firm with a great local reputation and where the customer journey is at the centre of everything it does.
“I’m thrilled to have been given this opportunity and look forward to working with the whole team, across all of our offices – Stretford, Urmston and Chorlton – and continue to build the Trading Places brand, reputation and success.”
Steve Cox added: “As a family firm for more than 25 years, we place great importance on the quality of our team. The fact that we have been able to attract a young professional of Michael’s calibre is representative of how Trading Places is continuing to grow and develop.
“I want people to recognise my company for quality service, focusing on our clients’ requirements, and not just the numbers. I am confident Michael will prove to be a real asset to the business.
“The way I employ my staff is based on a range of skills. I encourage experience coupled with a knowledge of social media and today’s technology. I have just invested in a new innovative programme of marketing which embraces social media.
“I believe this reflects Trading Places as the progressive company it is, and Michael holds key abilities which he can use to maximise clients’ house sales, and most importantly, achieve the best price possible for their property.”
