Julie Twist Properties was established in 1994, when Manchester was still trying to get its name on the map. Julie says, ‘I had a great passion for the city and truly believed in it. I worked alongside the Central Manchester Development Corporation for the first few years with the same goal: to bring life back in to Manchester and make it a 24-hour city’.
At this time, Manchester only had a handful of developments and around 600 residents. It took 3 years for any other agent to see the potential in Manchester and for this period of time, Julie Twist Properties was the only estate agent handling the rapidly growing city-centre residential market.
Urban Splash was the first developer to approach Julie to sell its property in Manchester. Five more Urban Splash developments were to follow. Artisan was another Manchester-based developer that contacted the company, leading to another four developments being marketed.
As local and national developers became impressed with the enthusiasm and success of the firm, this became a familiar pattern. Today, the city-centre population stands at around 15,000 – many of whom have bought and/or rented through Julie Twist Properties. The figure continues to grow.
As the market took off, Julie increased the number of staff she employed, and a number are still with the company today. In 2002, a partnership with Jones Homes led to the creation of JJT Residential at Salford Quays – again, the first estate agency in the area – which has since become another branch of Julie Twist Properties. In 2014, the Ancoats/New Islington branch followed, taking the company’s offices up to 3. By building on each success, Julie Twist Properties has developed into a well-known and well-respected organisation.
