    Found a tenant in 2 days

    Very good service. Whitegates found me a tenant within 2 days. They sorted all the references and did the necessary checks for me. The rent is always paid on time. Emma in the lettings office is extremely helpful and friendly.

    They make moving so easy

    I have recently purchased a property through Whitegates, and I cannot recommend them enough. After trying to buy a property through another less helpful agency, I couldn't believe the ease of the process with Whitegates so I'm extremely thankful that the vendors chose a well organised, professional team to sell their property. Thank you again to all the team!

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.

    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.

    Janet Jackson Sales & Lettings Negotiator

    My career at Whitegates started in August 2015 after having a short break from the property industry. During the break I worked for a large heating company providing high levels of customer service to a wide range of people. Having started my estate agency career back in 2001 I always knew that this was what I most enjoyed doing. In 2001 I worked for a local Pontefract agent gaining much experience dealing with sales transactions and satisfaction in seeing happy and excited customers moving into their new homes. Whilst working for this agent I covered many aspects of estate agency starting out as a Negotiator and was pleased when I progressed to manage my own successful branch. I am happy to be working back in the estate agency business as Sales/Lettings Negotiator. Delivering a high level of customer service, with a friendly yet professional approach. Out of work I enjoy Soul weekends, Zumba, holidays and I also am involved with charity work.

    Mark Chamber 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, we love to escape to the country and visit historic places.
