The property department at Newtons is winning a larger market share during these difficult market conditions. 

The department was founded earlier last year and is building an excellent reputation in the area, forging strong links with local estate agents and businesses.

The department is made up of an experienced and well regarded team of solicitors and conveyancing professionals who join from a number of firms in the area. The team includes David Barraclough (commercial property), Fiona Gillam (residential and commercial), Heather Johnson (residential) and the most recent addition Shamim Hussain (residential and commercial).

Shamim comments:

although the property market has been experiencing challenging times,our business shows us that the market is moving. The media continues to report more doom and gloom, but as we continue to capture a larger share and grow from strength to strength it is a very exciting time for Newtons.

Recent research by top UK estate agents Savills named Harrogate top of the UK´s ´educational supertowns´, citing Harrogate´s excellent schools as one of the main reasons why the town is more resilient to the recession, and has bounced back more quickly than elsewhere in the country. Newtons have seen growth in new instructions in the Harrogate area which supports Savills´ research.
