Another ‘Virtual Branch’ launches today in Sheffield

August 10, 2020 PR Officer

Hot on the trail of last week’s introduction of a virtual Lincoln branch, Leaders have today announced the launch of a virtual Sheffield office.

The move into Sheffield, South Yorkshire, reflects the company’s ongoing willingness to grow its business and drive innovation in the property sector, as it adapts to new ways of working to meet consumer demand. LRG is also keen to provide its renowned customer service to both tenants and landlords who work and live in the city.

Through its virtual office, Leaders’ new Sheffield branch will offer a complete range of lettings services. It will be headed up by Rebecca Wood, who has worked within the property sector for nearly 10 years, and has spent the last four with Leaders. Keen to achieve the best results possible for clients in Sheffield, Rebecca has held several senior roles to date, including lettings manager and valuations manager, and boasts a proven track record at identifying long-term tenants for landlords.

Sheffield is a leading hub for manufacturing and engineering and is home to two of the largest universities in the UK, boasting a total student population of over 60,000. Situated on the edge of the Peak District, it is one of the greenest cities in the UK and has the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe. All of this makes it an attractive city to both live and invest in, and this attraction will only grow with the planned HS2 high-speed rail link, which will reduce the travel time between Sheffield and London to 87 minutes.

Peter Kavanagh, CEO at LRG, said:
“The launch of our virtual office in Sheffield demonstrates our commitment to the innovation and continued delivery of customer service in a growing number of areas. We feel Sheffield is a tremendous place to live and work for tenants and landlords, with new planned transport links into London, two renowned universities and an increasingly diverse population. We are excited to announce our arrival and growing our business here, to provide Sheffield with our trustworthy and knowledgeable service.”
