Tynedale-based estate agent Finest Properties has strengthened its team with the appointment of Vicky Bell as a property consultant with responsibility for the sales and lettings side of the business.

Vicky, who has 20 years’ experience in the estate agency industry, most recently with an agent in Hexham, joined Corbridge-based Finest Properties this month.

The firm’s managing director Ryan Eve said: “I am thrilled that Vicky has joined Finest Properties.

“Her personality and expertise perfectly complement our existing team and there is no doubt that she will be a huge asset to the company and our customers.”

Vicky added: “Finest Properties marked its fifth anniversary last year and as someone who works in the

estate agency business, I have to say that I have been really impressed by everything that Ryan and the team have achieved in a relatively short space of time.

“In today’s market, estate agencies need to deliver dynamic and innovative marketing activity as well as exemplary customer service and I’m delighted to be working for an agency that is committed to doing both.”

Finest Properties has enjoyed rapid growth since opening its doors for business in 2013, as Ryan explained.

“The company has significantly grown in a short space of time by adopting modern methods while excelling in the basic fundamentals of agency,” he said.

“We are now recognised as

the leading agent for premium rural property in the Tyne

Valley and surrounding areas.

“But we’re not resting on our laurels and we will continue

to focus on providing an exemplary service which

goes above and beyond the standard in our market.”
