    Preston Baker was founded in 2008 by cousins Ian Preston and James Baker. With one branch and two staff members, they launched in York as a franchise of Bairstow Eves at the beginning of what would prove to be one of the most challenging periods to the UK property market. Bucking market trends, their business expanded to four branches by 2011, when they decided to become an independent agency and rebranded the firm as Preston Baker Estate and Letting Agents.

    The Best Small Lettings Agency in the North 2014
    image cannot be displayed
    Why did we win the Gold award? Here is the judges answer:"In a very strong category Preston Baker proved itself to be a terrifically well-rounded business - anyone using this agency will be in safe and capable hands. The directors absolutely believe in sharing with the team so they're fully involved in the strategy and direction of the business, and they're encouraged to share ideas with directors - the culture and environment is very open and transparent. All staff are put through a CPD programme as part of the detailed training schedule and can be sure of career progression opportunities as senior roles are filled from within. They are heavily involved with the local community and can often be seen supporting school arts and sport initiatives. Unafraid to implement new ideas, the directors spend time looking at the larger national agencies to see what they're doing well and shape their offering around this - Preston Baker is a small, personal agency offering a great big service."

      image cannot be displayed

      Judges comment

      "It is family owned and the directors work in the branches at the grass roots of estate agency. This has fostered a culture whereby the staff feels able to approach the partners and know they are part of something. The owners in turn understand that without the team there is no business so they go out of their way to look after them...This exceptional business is growing at a very fast rate. The top quality directors know exactly where they want to take it; they are delivering exceptional standards for their customers and building a culture to take them onto great things. Watch this space."

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        We have recommended PB to a number of friends
        "Our experience with Preston Baker has been very positive throughout the entire selling process. The initial valuation meeting with Hugh was extremely helpful and informative. We were not pressured in any way with regard to choice of agent. The information pack containing DVD and brochure about the Preston Baker approach to selling one\'s property was very clear, precise and devoid of unnecessary jargon and hype. Hugh\'s approach reflected those qualities. The commitments made by Preston Baker for example about customer contact were as described in their literature. We were delighted with their marketing strategy which resulted in several repeat viewings in the first week and a sale! We must also mention Jayne with whom we spoke several times well after office hours which again reflected how Preston Baker make customer contact and care a vital part of their service. We have recommended PB to a number of friends as we are confident our experience will be replicated every time." - Mr Goodfellow
