Think Christmas is a quiet time for people looking to move home? - you may want to think again! When looking to sell a property, people often think that the New Year is the best time to market their property, and it really is an excellent time, however there is a definite advantage to looking to market your home before Christmas and the New Year rush . Christmas is a time when family and friends are together, plans are formed for the next year and buying a new home, looking for a new job or moving to an area with a good school catchment area may all be on the horizons

It’s that time of year when the Christmas trees go up, becoming the centrepiece of our family festivities. We will cover their branches with beautiful baubles, sparkling lights and gifts for friends and family lovingly wrapped underneath.
Dementia is one of the greatest challenges we face in society today – over 850,000 people are living with the disease with approximately 45,000 of this number under the age of 65 and over 225,000 people will develop dementia this year. The village of Bramhope has come together to become Friends of Dementia. At our first meeting I was moved by the accounts relatives and carers gave whilst supporting loved ones living with this disease.

Having previously worked in the agile world of advertising and marketing in my opinion this is not before time.

We opened David Phillip Estate Agents towards the end of 2018 – my previous background has always been in sales and marketing, and Estate Agency is a totally new experience for me, so… what have I learnt in a my first year.
I read with interest an article by Property Eye that stated Estate Agents make up just 2.2% of the high street (1.9% in Yorkshire) – this figure compares with retail at 30.32%, charity shops at 7.76% and banks at 6.28%.
