The arrival of Tranmer White estate agents in the Wharfe Valley sees five of Yorkshire’s most experienced agents come together in an exciting new venture.

With nearly 140 years’ experience between them, there’s not much the team at new estate agents Tranmer White don’t know about the Wharfe Valley residential property market and their arrival will see them bring a fresh approach to buying and selling homes.

Having worked together collectively as colleagues over the last decade, the team of five headed by Ed Tranmer and Becky White and backed by the experience of William Eddison, Bill Dale and Tracy Wardman, is an exciting addition to the high street and one they believe will provide vendors and purchasers with a more bespoke and personal offering.

Through a combination of investment in the latest technology as well as tried and tested methods, the team have developed a reputation for outstanding customer service that is delivered with a nod to their unpretentious Yorkshire roots.

At their stylish new offices in Ben Rhydding, on the outskirts of Ilkley, stripped back wooden floors, exposed brickwork and a more laid-back look reflects their shift in focus and sets the tone for what they are looking to achieve.

It is a charm that appears to be paying off and within just a few weeks of opening at the beginning of February, they have seen a flood of enquiries and instructions come through the door.

And Becky says it is that combination of experience and knowledge of the area, coupled with a friendly and down-to-earth approach that is proving so attractive to vendors.

She said: “Myself and Ed are incredibly passionate about customer service and that is something we will be prioritising to ensure we work with clients on a personal level every step of the way.

“We know that every sale, client and their expectations and demands are different, and so we are striving to make it a more personal journey and work closely with each client from instruction to completion.

“We are incredibly lucky to have the backing of William and Bill who bring years of experience to the table and we believe we have compiled a formidable and trusted team who vendors and purchasers will put their faith in and enjoy working with.”

Ed, who since 2011 has worked with William and Bill said: “Gone are the days when estate agents in shiny suits ruled the high street. We want to bring a more laid-back feel to the way we operate which is reflected in our homely office, our relaxed approach and the warm welcome we extend to everybody who comes through our door.

“The Ilkley and Wharfe Valley property market remains hugely attractive to buyers and it is an exciting time to be launching a new agency, bringing a fresh and friendly approach to how we operate.

“Having worked with William and Bill for the past 13 years, I have had the best possible start and now with their experience alongside us, Becky and I have the opportunity to create an agency that brings energy, empathy and a personal touch that is often overlooked on the high street.”

Alongside Becky and Ed, William and Bill will provide invaluable knowledge to the team and need no introduction to the local housing scene having launched their own business together in Ilkley in 1992, while Tracy who has worked within estate agency since 2007 brings her vast experience to the practice as Office Manager.

For a team with such a long history of excellence, it’s refreshing to see them moving on with such a fresh and modern approach, while retaining the tried and tested principles that have always made them such a popular choice.
