YOUR MOVE Scott-Collier Taylor is owned by two local businessmen Ian Scott-Collier and Ian Taylor.
Both Ians have superb working relationships with their estate agency and lettings teams in Darlington, Stockton, Yarm and Stokesley believing the dedication and commitment that their teams give is reflected in a higher quality customer experience than that provided by other Estate Agents in the towns.
Whilst some Agents rely on the gimmicks in technology, the Ians focus on the “people” and “relationship” business that is Estate Agency and Lettings. Our people are friendly, service-focussed, go that extra mile for their clients and their colleagues and have a deep routed passion to get things right first time.
They have the experience and the knowledge, they have the technology that others have but they have a gift of being able to talk the language of their customers with a firm belief that helping people is the way to develop and run a successful business. It does work as our results prove.
The Directors who look after you:
Ian Scott-Collier
Ian Scott-Collier has over 30 years in the Estate Agency and Lettings industry. Having worked across the North East of England as Area Manager for Halifax Estate Agents, he has developed a reputation for sound advice in how to get the best price for your home and the optimum rental value for a property being let. He is renowned for his ideas on how a buyer can develop a property to create that stunning home to suit the buyer’s lifestyle and needs. Ian is active in the business. He is hands-on and involves himself fully in valuing homes for sale or let, accompanying viewers, providing advice and negotiating for that win-win situation. In his role as Area Manager with Halifax Estate Agents he led a team of over 100 people to deliver excellent sales and service in the Teesside area.
Ian Taylor
Ian Taylor MA, ACIS, MNAEA, Assoc CIPD has had 30 years experience across a range of disciplines. As an Area Bank Manager with Halifax Bank of Scotland he developed a strong Mortgage and Financial Services background with a real understanding about the importance of customer service that is relevant in the Estate Agency and Lettings business. Having substantial experience in and achieving a Masters degree in Human Resource Management, he has a firm knowledge of all aspects of HR, recruiting and developing his people to be high performers in an industry where quality is noticeable. YOUR MOVE Scott-Collier Taylor prides itself on a quality team delivering a quality performance for the benefit of its quality clients. Ian has over the last 15 years built his knowledge of Estate Agency and Lettings as an Area Manager with Halifax Estate Agents managing over 100 people to deliver top class sales results in the North East of England. Additionally Ian is qualified to National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) standard and is also a qualified Associate of Chartered Institute of Secretaries (ACIS), and an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute in People Development (CIPD).
Both Ians are delighted to work with YOUR MOVE, as they firmly believe that the mix of local knowledge, desire to succeed professionally and personally and the backing of a huge property brand across the country is unbeatable.
Having worked hard as Area Managers the Ians both believed that they could be successful in their own business and this proved the case as they grew the business in their 4 branches by over 40% in the first 6 months of trading. This has continued despite perceived difficult markets throughout 2008 and the following years when the economy took a hit. The business is going from strength to strength as it increases market share in sales whilst manages its stock of properties for sale and to let at levels where individual customers get the service they deserve rather than being a number as it is with competitors.
Both Directors take a hands on approach, always in the branches, out in properties, speaking to clients or contacting professionals, builders and corporate organisations to develop business.
