Locate Properties, a Bradford-based estate agent, has relocated to a new purpose-built office with support from a six-figure funding package from HSBC.
The property agent, established in Bradford in 2004, was originally based in the outskirts of the city.
As the business developed it needed greater space and a stronger presence in the city centre to continue to attract new clients and position itself at the forefront of the Bradford property market.
With financial support from HSBC, the firm redeveloped a previously derelict building in North Parade into a modern and attractive office space.
The larger premises has allowed the business to create three new jobs and is expected to increase turnover by 25% over the next two years.
In addition, the redevelopment also incorporates the upper floors, which have been converted into three fully-furnished, smart-media-enabled one-bedroom apartments.
Andrew Bennett, HSBC’s area director of West and South Yorkshire, said: “We are pleased to be backing Locate Properties. It is a dynamic business which has now made its mark in this popular area of Bradford.
"We look forward to seeing the business grow and our continued support demonstrates our appetite to back local businesses in West Yorkshire and beyond.”
Naveed Mir, owner of Locate Properties, said: “We are specialists in finding people a home that feels right for them, so it was crucial for us to be able to find the perfect home for our team.
"It was HSBC’s financial support and guidance that has allowed the business to redevelop a former derelict building, which not only improves the appearance of the local area but also creates employment.”
Locate Properties is owned by brothers, Naveed and Haseeb Mir.
