Huddersfield-based public relations company Scriba PR has added an award-winning estate agency to its portfolio of clients.
Scriba is set to provide communications support to Holmfirth-based Applegate Properties, in the form of social media management, the creation of blog and newsletter content and ongoing PR.
Applegate Properties, established in 2010 as Applegate Lettings, has expanded significantly within the past six years, growing to a team of ten and increasing its services to include both the rental and sales markets.
Committed to providing excellent customer service and a ‘different way of doing things’, Applegate Properties has grown mainly via word-of-mouth recommendations, to date.
But wanting to develop the business further, managing director Amy Wray knew she needed a PR partner on board, to help strengthen the company’s position within Huddersfield.
Commenting on why she chose Scriba for the job, Amy said: “We heard a lot of positive feedback about Scriba and were convinced they could do a great job after a meeting Katie for a general chat over coffee and cake.
“I identified they had similar core values to us at Applegate Properties – they are a very pro-active and positive team. We are looking forward to a great working relationship.”
Katie Mallinson, founder of Scriba PR said: “We’re delighted that Amy chose to work with us. Applegate Properties is a great company – they’re brilliant at what they do, and have bags of personality, so we have lots of ideas in the pipeline for them!”
Earlier this month, Applegate Properties claimed silver at the national Negotiator Awards for the Yorkshire & The Humber Agency of The Year category.
This new contract comes hot on the heels of Scriba’s Thrombosis UK award win after three years of fundraising efforts. Other clients include graphic display company Leach, software vendor Cascade HR and marketing automation specialist Force24.
