Ben Hollings rejoins Dacres
Ben Hollings has joined Yorkshire estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Skipton office as a sales valuer, bolstering the sales team.
Hollings previously spent seven years working at Dacres elsewhere in the Aire Valley. In his new role, he will assist branch principal, Mark Kane in valuing and marketing all types of residential property throughout Skipton and its surrounding towns and villages, as well as into the Yorkshire Dales.
He said: “I’ve had a long-held ambition to work in the Skipton area, so when this opportunity arose, I jumped at the chance.
“It’s also an interesting time for the local property market, which is extremely busy. We’re experiencing high levels of demand for all types of homes, which means we often have buyers competing for properties and many are currently selling for significantly more than their asking price. This makes it a particularly good time for anyone considering selling a home.”
Mark Kane, who heads up Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Skipton office, said: “Ben has plenty of experience in the property industry and knows the local area very well, so we’re delighted to welcome him into the Skipton team.
“We’ve enjoyed a very busy summer and we’re now seeing significant levels of interest from both buyers and sellers as we head towards autumn. Ben’s appointment will help us to service this ongoing demand.”

Hailey joins Glentrool from property consultancy JLL where she was an associate director and chartered building surveyor for 14 years. She previously worked for Montague Evans Building Consultancy and Baily Garner in London.
