Welcoming Gabrielle McKenna

Wed 3 February 2021

We are thrilled to introduce local property expert, Gabrielle Mckenna who will lead our residential sales and lettings division across County Durham from our Sedgefield branch. 

Gabrielle, who was born and bred in County Durham, has been operating in the regions property industry for the past five years, starting out as a property executive at a well-established agency in Durham and progressing to branch manager within the first six months.

Commenting on her appointment, Kim Harrison, Head of Residential Property at youngsRPS said: “It’s fantastic to have brought Gabrielle on board, her knowledge of the local area is second to none, and I have no doubt that our current and future clients will appreciate her passionate and dynamic approach to the industry.

Gabrielle will particularly thrive within our New Homes division as she has demonstrated an excellent rapport with house builders across the region. The marketing of new homes is a specialist field, and we are thrilled that Gabrielle will bring additional levels of expertise that will inevitably result in many benefits to our clients.”

We have continued to expand our services across the residential, rural, commercial and planning sectors over the past five years; the youngsRPS residential agency and lettings team operate across the North East and Yorkshire from our high street offices in the market towns of Alnwick, Hexham, Sedgefield and Northallerton. Our residential property services now account for around 25% of the business’ turnover.

Commenting on her appointment, Gabrielle said: “youngsRPS are a highly respected firm with a dynamic and professional approach to the market, an approach that I like to pride myself in personally. I am delighted to become part of the team and look forward to further developing residential sales and lettings throughout the region. 

The past 12 months have been interesting, particularly for the northern property market which has seen a huge increase in interest due to buyers looking to move away from the capital and invest in more rural property with outside space; opportunities such as flexible working has meant that buyers no longer need to be within commuting distance of their workplace. A fantastic opportunity that should be harnessed by those thinking about coming to market. 

An increase in activity, and changes to how the market can operate due to the COVID-19 outbreak places particular onus on client care and looking at new and innovative ways to maximise market visibility; both significant areas of importance to me. youngsRPS have embraced their digital approach to the property market and their offices are situated in fantastic high street locations; this, combined with exceptional levels of service ensure we assist clients to maximise every potential from their properties.”
