Meet the Manager – Lauren Yates, Wilmslow Office.


In the second of our ‘Meet the Manager’ articles, Lauren Yates from our Wilmslow Office writes about her career in the property industry and her love of all things Cheshire!

“From leaving school I went to work for a local Estate Agent and was soon promoted to the role of a Senior Sales Negotiator.

After a couple of years, I moved to a larger company with a national network of offices and my success in estate agency enabled me to buy my first house when I was 21.

By 2008 I had started my own company, JLY Properties Ltd, that included redevelopment projects, a property overseas in Spain and several rental properties around Cheshire, before selling my shareholding in 2012.

Still with a passion for property, people and for delivering an excellent service, today, I share my experience and enthusiasm as Manager of the Meller Braggins branch in Wilmslow. I believe one of my key strengths is in negotiation and getting the best price for my vendors. What makes me stand out from my competitors is that I genuinely care about my clients and will go above and beyond to help – it’s just who I am and always have been!

When I am not in the office you will find me on a horse, in some strange yoga position, walking in the Lakes, or when my budget allows, relaxing in a spa or sharing good food and drink in beautiful venues around Cheshire.

I grew up in Prestbury and in more recent years have lived in Knutsford before moving to Alderley Edge. I am driven by a need to help people through one of the biggest and most stressful experiences that buying or selling a house represents and to prove that this doesn’t need to be the case.

I look forward to the opportunity to let me help you make it easier…..”
