A residential property expert has returned to her South Yorkshire heartland to head up Linley & Simpson’s new Sheffield branch. The move for Penistone-born Kelly Boot comes after the regional sales and lettings specialist recently acquired two long-established independent city letting agents – Lewis Wadsworth and Sheffield Residential.
Kelly, who will be based with her team of seven in the former city centre offices of Lewis Wadsworth in Queen Street, began her career in the property sector as an administrator with a Wath-upon-Dearne lettings agent. Kelly said, “Whilst it may only have been two years since I last worked in South Yorkshire, it’s great to be back, and even better to be heading up Linley & Simpson’s Sheffield branch.
“The recent acquisitions saw us establishing a firm foothold within the city, and this brought with it a combined portfolio of 750 plus properties to manage.”
