Harrogate-based residential estate agency Knight Frank moves to independent ownership

26 September 2022

This September, directors of the Harrogate-based residential estate agency for Knight Frank have moved to independent ownership, a change that will see the launch of ‘North Residential’

North Residential is designed to reflect its locational expertise in helping home buyers and sellers in the area, and lend capacity to expand into neighbouring towns and cities in the near future.

After fifteen years of successful occupation in Harrogate, business leaders Harlan Pollitt and Daniel Rigg have secured independent ownership of the business with a more autonomous mission to evolve and drive market share.

The team, which is made up of those from the existing Harrogate office will continue to be located on Albert Street, with the office currently undergoing refurbishment. Emma Kingham has been promoted to Director, Harriet Cheshire has also become a Director and Fiona Lippell, who has been with the business for over 15 years, remains Office Manager.

Whilst North Residential is becoming independent, the two agencies will maintain an amicable working relationship and continue to collaborate as necessary.

Harlan Pollitt at North Residential, said:

We are excited to take this important step for the business which has established a strong reputation for its personalised service and proactive marketing approach. Whilst retaining our position as the leading estate agent in Harrogate, we have plans to invest considerably to expand into more regions over the next few years.

We are thrilled that our existing, highly valued team, that have become known and respected within the local community over many years, will each have an incentive in helping to make it even more successful.

North Residential will build upon an already well-established reputation as a highly experienced, honest, and reliable team that you can trust to find your ‘True North’ destiny.

North Residential retains its existing clients and continues to grow market share with a strong depth of knowledge of the Harrogate housing market.
