Agency’s happy first birthday
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.”
