Agency snaps up lettings book as part of regional expansion plan

Property consultancy Walker Singleton has acquired the book of business of the Boococks agency as part of its West Yorkshire growth plans.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, comes 18 months after Walker Singleton acquired Brighouse-based estate agency Daniel & Hirst.

The agency now has around 900 properties under management across West Yorkshire and 200 homes for sale, all mainly located within the Calderdale, Kirklees and Bradford areas.


Walker Singleton has offices in Halifax, Huddersfield, Leeds and Bradford and employs 54 people: four Boococks employees have transferred to the firm.

The book of business is being operated by Walker Singleton’s estate agency brand WS Residential..

Commenting on the transaction, Walker Singleton director, Ben Waites, says: “Buying Boococks’ book is a great way for us to expand our sales and lettings footprint in Calderdale, just as we successfully did with the acquisition of Daniel & Hirst.

“It provides WS Residential with the platform for further organic and acquisitive growth, and we are very pleased to welcome four new members to our team who have excellent local knowledge.

“We now look forward to continuing to raise awareness of WS Residential within West Yorkshire whilst providing our clients and tenants with excellent levels of service and advice.”

Founded in 1889, Walker Singleton is a multi-disciplinary consultancy which provides partner-led property and asset services.
