Property in Manchester
As the buying agent in Manchester, Lisa is fully aware that property in the city is always highly desired, and it is easy to see why.
Manchester has an internationally renowned commercial, educational and sporting reputation, as well as a vibrant cultural and leisure scene, which has made it the envy of many European cities. It has been recognised twice as the UK’s most liveable city by The Economist magazine and is now a key focus for the development of the Northern Powerhouse – the UK government’s strategy for boosting business across the north of England.
Manchester itself is home to numerous theatres, cinemas, libraries, museums and galleries, including the Bridgewater Hall, Royal Exchange Theatre, Palace Theatre, Opera House and the Lowry Theatre at Salford Quays. Facilities such as the Manchester Arena regularly host international shows and pop concerts and smaller venues, pubs, clubs and restaurants ensure that there’s something going on every night of the week.
Property in Manchester ranges from contemporary city centre and quayside apartments to family houses in exclusive and vibrant suburbs. The arrival of the BBC and associated media & creative industries at Media City (Salford Quays) plus the ever increasing student population has also made the city a hotspot for buy-to-let investors. Chorlton, on the banks of the River Mersey, and Didsbury are consistently popular with young professionals. The southern suburbs around Altrincham, Hale and Bowdon, whilst still very accessible to the city, offer leafier surroundings with properties ranging from modern apartments to traditional family houses and Victorian mansions – all close to the main transport links as well as a great selection of bars, restaurants and boutique shopping.

Lisa has lived, studied and worked as a home finder and property expert across the North West all her life and is extremely enthusiastic about all the region has to offer. She joined County Homesearch in 2009 as the buying agent in Manchester and now leads a team of property finder experts covering Cheshire, Liverpool, Cumbria, Lancashire and North Wales.
Lisa excels in tailoring support to meet the needs of her clients; recognising that not everyone has a multi-million budget or the time to travel to view properties that looked great on screen but turn out to be disappointing in reality. Recently she has dealt with a diverse range of home buying challenges for returning ex-pats, downsizers, investors and those looking for holiday homes.
Lisa has also combined her interest in property and a passion for Greek Islands with the development of a holiday villa for rental on the island of Paxos.
