Ad­di­tions an as­set to firm

Macclesfield Express - - HOMES -

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.”
