New structure announced as ‘Garness Group’ established to oversee continued growth of three dedicated property businesses

Garness Jones is delighted to announce that our specialist property services will be delivered by three dedicated companies from April 4, 2022 – all overseen and managed by the newly formed ‘Garness Group’.

The move comes after 25 years of operating in the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire property sector, during which time our services have continually developed and expanded.

Our work now covers all aspects of commercial property and investment, supporting landlords in managing residential lettings portfolios and the block management of leasehold residential developments.

Under our new structure, which will become operational from April 4, 2022, all services will continue to be operated by their current managers and staff.

Garness Group will be overseen by the current directors of the business, and will include;

  • Garness Jones – The long-established and respected commercial property business, focused solely on supporting commercial property activity and clients.
  • Gro Residential Management – Providing dedicated property management services to professional residential landlords, trusts and similar ownership entities. (Services currently provided by Garness Jones Residential
  • Pure Block Management – Providing efficient and responsive management services for leasehold owners, freeholders and developers of residential developments. (Services currently provided by Garness Jones Residential)

‘Business as usual’ for staff and clients

Group managing director Dave Garness says it will be ‘business as usual’ for both staff and clients from April 4th onwards, with months of work behind the scenes completed to ensure a seamless switch into a new era.

However, he says it is a significant move for the business in terms of paving the way for future growth and development of each specialist area of work.

“This has been a change which has been in the pipeline for some time now for us, as it has become clear over the past two years that each specialist area of our business has reached a point where they now need the breathing space of being their own company, and the benefit of having their own clear identity,” he said.

“We would like to assure all clients that our services will continue to be provided by the same staff, to the same professional standard.

“This move is all about enabling three businesses, which have each grown and established themselves as leaders in the local market, to continue delivering excellent, innovative and responsive property solutions.

“We have invested heavily into technology and systems to ensure each business is best placed to deliver services to clients, and by operating under the newly formed Group, they will each have a freedom to take their own direction under their managers, whilst still having the collective strength of the group to pull upon.

“The group remains led by the same directors who will continue to provide experience, knowledge and trust garnered over three decades of supporting businesses, investors, landlords, developers, owners, leaseholders and tenants.

 “The change will be subtle for our clients, but one we know will prove beneficial. It is all part of the evolvement of our business to ensure we can build upon 25 years and enjoy a further 25 years.”

New dedicated websites will be launched for Gro Residential Management, Pure Block Management and Garness Group.
