The local property market is booming, particularly post-Covid as people re-evaluate what they want from their house, with gardens and home office space proving particularly popular.
But the stresses of moving home remain the same, says Pontefract’s newest estate agent, Donna Johnston, owner of Johnston’s Property. She’s had 15 years of experience across the housing and mortgage sectors and wants to create a new way of moving that puts excellent customer service and marketing strategy at the forefront.
“Behind every house sale is a buyer and vendor who have a desire to move,” she said. “These are real people with emotions and feelings – my aim is to create a thoroughly bespoke service for them, fully understanding why they are moving and what they hope to move to and then, smooth the entire process for them.”
Part of this new way of working is being available beyond normal office hours, to be as flexible and approachable as people need, together with a tailored marketing plan for each property.
Moreover, as an independent estate agent, she can deliver that personal touch and personalised service that makes her stand out from the crowd. She works so well with her clients they often become friends.
Having lived in the Pontefract area for much of her life, Donna is a huge ambassador for the area, and has been running a positivity campaign across her social media using the hashtag #theinformativeea highlighting all the best of the town.
One of the finest homes on the Johnson’s Property portfolio is this outstanding detached, five double bedroom family home in sought-after Ackworth.
A beautiful oak kitchen with an island opens out via French doors to a spacious garden with decking. Flexible living space leaves ample room for playrooms as well as offices, and there’s a direct train line to Leeds just over a mile away.
Donna added: “I currently only concentrate on residential sales, and my time is spent taking the hassle away from my clients as much as possible. I spend my time working with them to achieve the best possible outcome at every level.”
Having good contacts in the sector, she can also help them find their next home where required.
“I genuinely want to help people achieve their dreams; by understanding why people are moving house and then to offer the best advice possible which best suits their needs.”
