Galley Properties are excited to announce that they have entered into an agreement to acquire SYBS Premier Lettings, a privately owned independent lettings agent operating in the Doncaster area. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The team at Galley will take the established portfolio of rental properties under their care to strengthen their business while in turn providing additional benefits for the SYBS customers. The transition will take place early in the New Year.
As part of the business sale process the owners of SYBS extensively researched a suitable candidate that they were confident could deliver the same high level of customer service that their customers have come to expect. SYBS were impressed by Teresa and her team at Galley Properties, they commented that they were “extremely happy to endorse Teresa Galley as she is a remarkable lady and truly dedicated to the running of her business. Teresa’s company has won many awards in the sales and lettings arena and we have no hesitation at all in her taking over our managed properties. The services [customers] receive will only be enhanced by the commitment and dedication which I know Teresa has put in place.”
The property industry is experiencing many changes and the sale of property businesses have increased in recent months due to businesses struggling. However the sale of SYBS is a good news story and simply a way to allow the previous owners to retire and spend more time with family abroad. The acquisition of this solid business by another strong independent Doncaster estate and lettings agent in great news for property market in Doncaster. Many of SYBS’s customers have contacted the owners to wish them well in retirement and the team at Galley Properties will be working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Teresa Galley comments: “SYBS are a well-respected business and have worked hard for a number of years within Doncaster. We are pleased that the previous owners have chosen us as the most suitable candidate to keep delivering a great service for their customers. I have a lot of respect for all that they have achieved and I think it speaks volumes that one of the main concerns of SYBS during the sale was that their customers maintain such good service. I am confident that myself and my team are able to fulfil all their wishes and build a strong working relationship with all of their landlords.”
Galley Properties are a multi award winning estate and letting agent and this year they were named the ‘Best Small Agent’ at the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards. A large part of why they won this prestigious award was due to the strength of their lettings team and the exceptional results they have achieved year after year. In addition to the strong lettings business Galley Properties have an outstanding sales department and an award winning in-house marketing team.
Chantal Perkin, Chief Lettings Negotiator at Galley Properties adds: “I am looking forward to working with all the new landlords and tenants and I am sure that we can do a great job for them. We have over a decade of experience in Lettings and we manage properties for hundreds of landlords so I am sure that this experience will help us make this transition smooth for everyone. I am keen to get started and the whole lettings team are more than happy that SYBS chose us as their preferred agent to take over their portfolio.”
