Leeds estate agent, HOP has promoted Neil Dawkin to Director of its specialist property investment division, known as HOP Investments, which offers both new and experienced residential property investors a complete turnkey service.
Neil has more than 20 years’ experience in the property industry spanning development, investment and property management. He joined HOP in 2010 and has since established a strong track record for optimising properties for landlords and overseeing successful refurbishment projects, as well as advising clients on investment opportunities and HMO regulations.
HOP Investments specialises in sourcing tailored property deals for clients and project managing refurbishments to maximise investments and improve returns.
The division also offers development services, providing specialist advice on converting property into HMOs, commercial buildings into residential homes and acquiring development land. HOP also works with land and property owners who hold potential development sites that they want to progress.
Neil said: “Leeds remains a highly enticing location for investors and naturally offers better value for money than many other UK cities with attractive yields, against the backdrop of a strong local economy and high demand for quality rental property from both professionals and students.
“The ethos of HOP Investments is about making property investment in Leeds hassle free. As well as working with local landlords, we act for clients as far away as Australia and Singapore, searching for property that fits their risk profile, that we know will rent.”
