The Jackson-Stops advantage

No one could have predicted how 2020 would affect us all and lockdowns and restrictions look likely to stay for a little while longer. Our new ways of working have resulted in changes to many businesses, including Jackson-Stops Yorkshire.

Given the nature of the times we find ourselves in, it’s no wonder that many people are re-assessing their work/life balance and looking to work remotely and that applied to Jackson-Stops Yorkshire too.

Our York office was established over 75 years ago and operated from Petergate in the centre of the city. However, with the lease coming to an end in December 2020, and the pandemic forcing many businesses to assess their working practises, we took the bold decision to close the office and adopt a remote working approach similar to most large companies. This has led to the creation of three virtual offices in York, Harrogate and Thirsk.

It was a brave decision to move out of the city centre but we have not looked back, and we’re pleased to say, hand on heart, it works…and our clients agree!

The advantages of our new way of working are endless and include a more agile, proactive and personal service for our clients. In these trying times, the sales process is taking longer so our ability to react and respond ensures that sales are pushed through as quickly and efficiently as possible. Taking the best care of our clients through our unrivalled knowledge of the local property market sets us apart from other agents.

“Nick Talbot did an excellent job of marketing our property. He followed every lead tirelessly and went above and beyond in securing the sale with excellent communication between both parties throughout and helped the buyer and the seller overcome the many issues we faced along the way with his unquestionable experience. 

Nick’s friendly and honest style makes dealing with him a pleasure. I would thoroughly recommend Nick and his team to anyone in the North Yorkshire area looking to sell their property as he has been the most diligent and truthful agent I have worked with and he delivers the results.”
