Formed in 1982 by Derrick Hackney & John Leigh, Hackney & Leigh Ltd has grown from just three original Lakeland offices to become the area’s leading Property Agents with eight prominent high street offices providing an unrivalled service across the region. From Furness in the West to the Yorkshire Dales in the East and from Carnforth in the south up to Keswick in the north, Hackney & Leigh have the region covered.
Any area which includes two National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and such a variety of major local towns, pretty villages and unique hamlets requires a wide range of expertise and knowledge and Hackney & Leigh have just the right qualified, long serving, highly experienced and professional staff to do just that (and a little bit more!).
Combining traditional levels of personal service with up to the minute technology, we pride ourselves on the quality of our presentation and advertising. In particular, our very busy and user-friendly website generates an ever increasing flow of buyers and tenants and we are constantly pleased by the flow of compliments on its ease of use which we receive. The site allows purchasers and tenants alike to easily inspect and print off a full set of Property Particulars, including photos, floor plans and site plans or to view additional Professional Photographs or a Property Walkthough Video of each and every property which is on the market with Hackney & Leigh. Our highly regarded property details are also available on a variety of popular Internet Property Portals providing truly worldwide coverage. We really are your local, high street, online agent.
Home buyers and prospective tenants are also encouraged to register on our extensive mailing list to receive email and text alerts regarding new properties which come to the market and matches their criteria or which might appeal. Targeted marketing is an increasingly important sector of the Estate Agents world and we are at the very forefront of this new and specialised technology.
As you can see, there is so much more to selling your home than simply putting up a “For Sale” board (no matter how eye catching it might be) and waiting for the first suitable buyer to walk in the door. For example, our attention to the after-sales service, particularly that nail-biting spell between agreeing the sale and exchanging contracts, is more important today than it has ever been, and forms an essential part of our customer service package. Our contact and liaison between the buyer and seller in this potentially tricky period has proved vital to many transactions over the years. Whether your home is a small and cosy bed-sit or a multi-million pound mansion, we will treat you with the respect and attention to detail that you deserve.
Whilst we may have started by just helping to sell property, we quickly found ourselves assisting in the letting side too! We now have a very strong presence in the local Lettings market, providing pro-active Property Management for many Landlords and Tenants across the region, backed up by modern computer software and of course, a wealth of local experience from our dedicated team.
Our Professional Services department encompass a wide variety of Valuations as well as Development Consultancy across the region. We have three RICS Registered Valuers amongst our number, with a massive combined depth of knowledge ready to assist in a wide variety of property valuation scenarios.
Whatever your Property Requirements may be, now or in the future, Hackney & Leigh are here to help - Caring about you and your property!
