Hilton & Horsfall is a leading independent sales and letting agent in Lancashire with branches in Barrowford and Clitheroe. Started in 2007 by Gavin Hilton and Mark Horsfall, the agency excels in high quality property marketing and a personalised service that delivers excellent results to customers.
Owners Gavin and Mark met at engineering training school in Burnley in 1999, and later pursued separate, successful careers working for estate and letting agencies in the local area.
Gaining the know-how, connections and expertise of the property industry, Gavin and Mark identified a lettings opportunity in the market and decided to set up on their own in 2007. A young, dynamic and modern agency with ambition to bring a high quality brand to the area. The business started from the kitchen table at home, with a diary, a computer, two phones and an opportunity to manage a 350-unit strong portfolio of properties.
The market collapsed in 2008 for sales, but the business had firm foundations in the lettings market and continued to flourish.
In 2009, they opened their high street office in Barrowford and started to make headway in the residential sales market. They refined and rebranded the business; started to invest in the latest technology and became known as a slick, contemporary agency.
This is not an agency who rests on its laurels, Gavin and Mark always look to the next thing. With a keen eye for identifying new trends, Hilton & Horsfall were early adopters of Facebook right from the start (back in 2008 when Facebook was only 4 years old) seeing it as a force to be reckoned with to showcase property listings.
It worked and the agency today has almost 20,000 followers who view, share and engage with the brand and their regular updates of property listings for sale and to let.
In 2021 Hilton & Horsfall opened its second high street office, in Clitheroe, Lancashire, for both sales and lettings.
