Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

Open­ing an es­tate agency in a re­ces­sion has proved no bar­rier to suc­cess for Jeremy Hop­kin­son.

His epony­mous com­pany Hop­kin­sons, based in Har­ro­gate, is cel­e­brat­ing its first birth­day. Jeremy says: “De­spite the re­ces­sion, win­ter and elec­tion we have worked ex­tremely hard – seven days a week.” He has also been helped by the pop­u­lar­ity of the spa town.

He says: “Har­ro­gate re­mains a highly de­sir­able area to live.

“Prop­erty in all price brack­ets are see­ing ac­tiv­ity fol­low­ing the school re­turn but Au­gust saw many buy­ers hunt­ing a deal here be­fore tak­ing a hol­i­day – it was a good month with a sale a day.

“In Septem­ber, we are see­ing good ac­tiv­ity lev­els with view­ings up and some en­cour­ag­ing sales.”
