Duncan Young

Jesmond Dene House

Duncan started in estate agency in 1984 when he joined Dudley Charlton in North Northumberland and worked out of their Alnwick and Berwick office’s close to his home village of Warkworth and the Dukes Grammar School in Alnwick where he was educated

General Accident Property Services bought Dudley Charlton and Duncan rose up to an Area then Divisional Director where he oversaw 66 offices from Sheffield to Scotland

His roots were always in the North East where he made his home in Gosforth with his wife Alison and three boys who went to the Royal Grammar School

In 1998 he established Sanderson Young when he bought the residential business of Sanderson Townend and Gilbert and started with one office in Gosforth and six staff. At its peak the company had 80 staff and five offices with nearly 1000 properties for sale

Duncan has seen the peaks and troughs of the property market since the demise of Northern Rock and has a vast experience of the residential sales lettings and new homes market. Sanderson Young represents the largest estate agency in the north east for New Homes sales and also proudly sells more houses over £1 million than any other agent

In an age of changing market conditions and the launch of the on line estate agent Duncan still believes in  the need for an experienced property professional who knows their market place well and who can guide the public through the maze of residential sales and purchases

Twenty years on since he launched Sanderson Young Duncan has a fascinating view on where the residential property market has been and where it might go in the next twenty years.
