Jackson joins Pugh

Residential valuations specialist Chris Jackson has joined the property auctioneer as associate director. He will be based in the firm’s Leeds office.

With a decade’s experience in the Yorkshire property auctions market, Chris will take on a lead role in growing the auction business in the region.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “We are really pleased to welcome Chris on board and his appointment is a great strategic hire for us in Yorkshire.

“We are seeing growing demand for auction services in Yorkshire as rising interest rates cool the market and increasing numbers of homebuyers and sellers look to auctions for a secure sale. Chris brings a wealth of experience as well as a great network of contacts across the region.”

Part of the Eddisons property group, Pugh last month joined forces with Sheffield auction house Mark Jenkinson. The two firms have now combined their online monthly property listings to create one of the North’s largest property auctions.

Between them the two firms have sold commercial, residential and land assets worth more than £94m at auction in the last year.

Jackson said: “This is an exciting time to be joining Pugh, which is a dominant force in the Northern auctions market and has a well-earned reputation for customer service matched with strategic market insight and impressive geographic reach.

“I am looking forward to bringing my experience of the Yorkshire market to expand Pugh’s customer base in the region still further.”

Jackson previously spent a decade with Auction House West Yorkshire, and previously worked for estate agents Emsleys and Dawson Wake.

This month’s Pugh and Mark Jenkinson auction currently features over 50 properties, with new lots added daily, and will be held on 19 July.
