Manning Stainton, which has 19 offices in West and North Yorkshire, has completed the acquisition of a local independent agency.
AR Estate Agents, established in 2011, provides sales and lettings services in East Leeds and the surrounding areas. As part of the purchase Manning Stainton will take over AR’s lettings portfolio.
“We would like to expand our lettings operation even further by acquiring other like-minded businesses” says Mark Manning, managing director of Manning Stainton.
“The industry is experiencing some fundamental changes and we feel that our expertise in the sector aligned with our extensive geographical footprint could be of real benefit to independent agents and landlords during these challenging times” he adds.
Manning Stainton says it regularly attracts over 800 new tenants every month actively seeking rental accommodation and provides landlords with services including a let only option and full comprehensive property management.
