Morgans has been at the forefront of City Living in Leeds for over 20 years and from a front room start-up with an inkling of an idea in 1997, the business now employs 50 people at the flagship premises it owns in the City Centre and the heart of Headingley.
The foundations of our business are our people, work ethic, innovative approach and unwavering determination to do the very best job we can for our clients and our team. This is evident across the considerable investment we make in our work environments, our 62 hours a week opening hours, our consistent PR and marketing approach and, most recently, our foray into the dark world of social media.
The backbone of our business is our landlords, many of whom have been with us for over 15 years and we do all we can to adhere to the principles of robust property management. We are proud of our performance in this area, having maintained 99% occupancy for the last 5 years and consistently managed our rent arrears at less than 1% of rent roll.
We celebrated our 20th birthday last week with a 12-hour-long event hosted by Nic Routh and his team at Shears Yard (located on The Calls). Attended by 180 guests, including our family, our friends, our clients and our staff, we arranged a number of entertainers to keep our guests enthralled throughout the day. Scott Perry, one of the UKs top magicians, Tristan Mackay a singer who began his career busking on the streets of Leeds City Centre and Dean a DJ from The Maven performed and entertained our guests during the celebration. The atmosphere, food and venue made the day even better, thanks to the team at Shears Yard. We were served a BBQ (which went well with the glorious sunshine on the day), a range of hot meals in the evening and drinks throughout the event.
‘’It’s never a great idea in business to stop and dwell for too long but our party gave us the perfect opportunity to celebrate something of a milestone. It’s been an exciting journey for Morgans so far and as much energy and ambition now as we did in 1997”.
In the last 20 years, we have sold around 6,000 city centre apartments, rented a total of around 20,000, advised around 150 developers on new schemes and now manage a portfolio of property worth around £200m. We are members of ARLA, TDS and The Property Ombudsman Scheme and we are consistently the number one agent on Rightmove in our key markets.
And we have so much more to do…
