Our Story

Since Preston Baker was founded at the height of the recession in 2008, we’ve prided ourselves on delivering service of the highest standard for all of our customers.

Who are Preston Baker?

Our main aim is to make moving easy. Whether you’re a young couple moving into your first home, an expanding family looking to sell your starter home for something roomier, a landlord with high hopes for your buy-to-let property, or a tenant looking for a top-notch temporary home - we can help you.

Over the last decade, Preston Baker owners Ian and James and their team of dedicated staff have developed unique and innovative tools and techniques to revolutionise the estate agency industry. Property Launch - our trademarked selling method - has continued to steam roll through the industry, garnering more money for homes in far less time than traditional methods.

This dedication to introducing trailblazing techniques has led to Preston Baker being recognised in some of the industry’s most respected awards listings - we have won awards in the Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year competition every year since 2011. We’re also honoured to be awarded in and the Property Academy’s Best Estate Agent Guide 2018, with our Oakwood branch being voted as the Best Branch in the UK for Sales and Lettings. After beating off competition from over 26,000 other branches across the UK, Preston Baker Leeds offices were ranked 1st, 6th and 11th for Sales and Lettings, while Sheffield was ranked 4th for Sales.

Covering a wide range of areas across Leeds, York, Selby, Wetherby, Doncaster and Sheffield, we’re on hand to help all types of customers with a wide range of services. We’ll put you at the heart of the move, and will always put your best interests first. If you’re looking to buy, sell, let or rent, you can do so with confidence with Preston Baker.


Our values

Preston Baker was created with three core values at the heart - Attitude, Community and Energy.

For the past decade, we’ve kept these A.C.E. values at the forefront of everything we do, whether it’s helping someone buy their first home, selling a property, or training our new staff. Every single member of the team is trained through the ranks of our Preston Baker Academy with these values ingrained into their development, meaning you can be confident that no matter who your agent is, they’ll always put you first.

Our can-do attitude, first-class communication skills and motivation to always achieve the best result for our customers is what makes us the best in the business.

As we do more work for our clients, across a wider range of marketing mediums, we offer a Premium Service that no other agent can match. Because of this, we have added 'Premium' to our core values moving forward, so now we operate for all our clients with P.A.C.E
