Residential property developers based in Stockport, Manchester – Rise Homes – has appointed Stockport-based estate and letting agent disruptor – Property Sense – to market The Ironworks Build to Rent development in Sheffield city centre.

The ironworks development is situated on the once-neglected site of the former Queens Hotel on Scotland Street. It was officially opened in September 2023 by the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Colin Ross.

Comprising 229 apartments, Property Sense has been tasked with letting the majority of the scheme.

Launched in April 2024, Property Sense’s appointment also marks the company’s launch in Yorkshire, a region that is a top growth priority for the agency.

This agreement marks Property Sense’s largest lettings deal to date. It comes off the back of the agency successfully letting the developer’s The Interchange scheme in Stockport town centre. 

Property Sense vastly accelerated lettings figures for the Stockport development, securing tenants for over 40% of the 196 apartments within weeks of being appointed.

“We’re spearheading innovation with our forward-thinking approach and have already proven that it works. From self-contained blocks in the North of England to individual buy-to-lets across the country, we’ve made huge strides in our first few months.

“Being trusted by Rise Homes to once again deliver exceptional lettings results is fantastic and securing such a large letting contract in Sheffield enables us to demonstrate how our approach delivers enviable results. 

“We’ve got ambitions to become the biggest sales and letting agent in the country and look forward to making a huge splash in Yorkshire’s buoyant property market, scaling up our operations and working with the region’s key developers.”
