    Helen Dutton - Franchise Owner
    Helen started her career in 1990 working for the Yorkshire Building Society. She quickly progressed from a customer adviser to running her own branch. After deciding she wanted to work for herself, she joined Local Properties in South Elmsall, as a self employed mortgage adviser and was appointed as company director in 2002. Along with her husband Barry Dutton, they expanded Local Properties and opened up the Pontefract branch in 2007. Under Helens leadership The branch quickly grew from strength to strength and due to the success of Local Properties, in 2009 she was asked by Whitegates if she would like to take on the Whitegates Pontefract franchise. Helen felt this was an excellent opportunity for both the business and her clients, so in 2010 Local Properties Pontefract became a Whitegates franchise. Since opening Pontefract in 2007 she has built up an enviable reputation for selling houses, an impressive rental portfolio, and with her amazing team, offer a service to all their vendors, landlords and tenants that is second to none. Helen has a great passion for both selling property's and letting properties for over 250 landlords. She spends most of her time valuing properties for both sales and rent.

    Fiona Edwards - Sales & Lettings Valuer
    My career within the industry started in 2010, starting as a Lettings Negotiator and quickly progressing to Lettings Valuer. Shortly after being introduced into the property industry I bought and renovated my own house which is when I realised that I was very passionate about property. After this I gained experience as a Sales Negotiator working for a corporate company in the local Pontefract area. I take pride in delivering the best customer service possible and I am very pleased now to be working for a well-established family run agent as a Sales and Lettings Valuer. In my spare time I enjoy spending time in the garden as well as going for countryside walks with my partner and our dog.

    Mark Chambers - Sales & Lettings Negotiator
    I am happy to say that this is my 8th year working at Whitegates within residential sales and lettings. Initially starting in 2008 my role was very much residential sales based, the change in the challenging market conditions gave me a great understanding of the business and also allowed me to increase my skills and knowledge. In November 2012 I was offered the opportunity to move into the lettings management side of the business which lead me into my current role of Senior Lettings Coordinator. My current role allows me to establish long term business relationships with landlords, contractors and tenants alike, this has helped me to build on my strong negotiation and communications skills. Outside of Whitegates I enjoy spending time with my wife Charleen and our daughter, we love to escape to the country and visit historic places.
