Baxter Estate Agents has expanded into Holmfirth and Huddersfield.
Director Ami Baxter opened Baxter Estate Agents in Elland, a market town in Calderdale, in September 2015 after working in the industry since she was 16.
But two years ago Baxter, who has 20 years experience working as an agent, decided to close the office and work from home instead – a move that has proved far more profitable, she says.
“We no longer have timewasters walking through the office door and that has enabled us to generate more property sales,” said Baxter. “The money we save on rent goes towards added marketing spend on Rightmove, and other platforms, so that our clients reap the rewards.”
The agency, which specialises in residential sales, lettings, commercial and auctions, is one built on giving back to a cause that is close to Baxter’s heart.
Baxter explained: “Since my mum died seven years ago, we decided to donate £5 to Stroke research every time we sell a property. The total amount raised to date is fast approaching £4,000.”
She added: “I am not interested in making millions of pounds. After working in the estate agency business since I was 16, I found a gap in the market for a company that offers excellent customer service.
“Our customers are extremely important to me and I do all I can to ensure that their journey goes smoothly.”
