About holroyds

Holroyds is a family owned and operated estate agency, set up to show the Yorkshire property market that not all estate agents are the same. Launched by mother & son Chris and Julie Holroyd in the summer of 2015, we aim to be different and set a new precedent in the housing market. Delivering a proactive approach, not seen in the area before, we make sure we keep you fully informed throughout the whole process.

With over three decades of experience, it’s safe to say that selling houses is all we know. Being brought up in Haworth, the Aire & Worth valley is something we are extremely proud of and having never left the area, who better to promote your property than the Holroyd family?
