25 Apr Company News – April 2022
HARDISTY AND CO has joined forces with the Lindley & Simpson Group in an exciting merger. Our local, family run business will continue to operate as HARDISTY AND CO supported by Lindley & Simpson’s network of 18 local offices.
Our HARDISTY AND CO offices in Otley, Guiseley and Armley have moved to our main HARDISTY AND CO hub in Horsforth, meaning our existing clients will not be affected in any way and for new and prospective clients, we will continue to serve the whole of North, North West and West Leeds areas as we have done for the past 30 years.
Our Horsforth Hub is a much larger branch which will now be solely focused on Residential and Commercial sales and is also home to our HARDISTY PRESTIGE properties and HARDISTY FINANCIAL for all your financial advice and mortgage needs.
The Horsforth Hub will continue to be managed by former Hardisty and Co – Director, Andrew Hardisty, and his wife Tracey.
Established as Waite & Co in 1992, Andrew Hardisty bought the business in 2001 and it was rebranded to HARDISTY AND CO in 2015, where he continued to grow it along with his two brothers to employ a team of almost 40.
Andy said: “We have been counterparts of Linley & Simpson since the 1990s and we have long held a shared respect for each other.
“When we started to explore the possibility of selling our business, our priority was to ensure its future would be in safe and trusted hands.
“Linley & Simpson has that pedigree. It shares our passion for property, and for employing a team comprising only the very best people. Myself, and the other former Hardisty and Co colleagues joining Linley & Simpson, look forward to contributing to its future success.”
Please do rest assured that these changes will not affect any transactions currently going through the process of selling and our team are here to help you every step of the way.
