North East property specialist Bradley Hall is strengthening its residential management team to manage future growth in its estate agency arm.

Bradley Hall Residential Ltd has been established as part of a wider group programme of key appointments and expansion.

Matt Hoy has been promoted from Northumberland area manager to an equity director of the new company. He will oversee all residential matters, operating between the branch network currently based in Alnwick, Morpeth, Gosforth and Durham.

He will report to the main BH Group board of directors led by managing director Neil Hart and including directors Peter Bartley, Richard Rafique and Geoff Davis.

At least two new posts will be created within the North East estate agency offices to handle the growing level of instructions and general demand.

Neil Hart, MD of BH Group, said: “The changes will have no immediate impact on customers but do reflect a commitment to growing our estate agency business which will ultimately mean we’ll offer customers greater coverage across the region, with a larger team to handle enquiries.

“In recognition of his excellent work to date we have made Matt Hoy a director with immediate effect. He will lead on all matters residential.

“Elsewhere, we intend to create extra posts within the estate agency offices as part of our overall plan to build the workforce within BH Group to around 50 people in the next 18 months.”

Bradley Hall, he said, is intending to grow the branch network within the next 12 months and is already considering further branch openings in Northumberland.

“We see 2017 as another big year for all at Bradley Hall; as we continue to secure greater market share and present a strong property services brand to the region,” said Mr Hart.

Bradley Hall offers a full range of property services including valuation, commercial and residential agency, property management, business sales and disposals, acquisitions, rating appeals and town planning, as well as financial services through BH Financial.
