Three members of Dacre Son & Hartley’s much-valued staff are celebrating 25 years with the estate agency firm.
Gail Shepherd, Frances Slocombe and Cath Bradbury all started working at Dacres in 1991, at Harrogate, Baildon office and Bingley, respectively.
Gail says, “I started my career as a trainee negotiator with Dacres in Harrogate, and over the years took on more of an office manager role. Five years ago I joined the Knaresborough branch, as a senior sales negotiator. I can’t be certain on the number of sales I’ve been involved with over the last 25 years but it must be well over 1,000!”
Sales negotiator Frances says, “I started working on a Sunday afternoon as a receptionist, as I had young children. As my children got older I increased my hours working in Baildon, Saltaire and Bingley, as well as being marketing new build homes.
“I now carry out viewings and negotiate offers – but I am still the one who runs to the post box at the end of day!”
Sales negotiator Cath says, “I joined Dacres in Bingley part-time. I have also covered the Keighley area, working more hours as my children got older.
“I live in East Morton and thoroughly enjoy my job, answering the phone, carrying out viewings, following up on offers or invoicing, no day is ever the same and it’s great to be part of such a busy office.”
Patrick McCutcheon, Head of Residential Sales at Dacre, Son & Hartley says, “Gail, Frances and Cath are all stalwarts of our business. We are delighted to celebrate their 25 year anniversaries and very grateful for their years of professionalism and dedication to their roles.”
