An Introduction

Source Harrogate is a Property Search and Buying Agency.

Source Harrogate – The Property Finders, provides a focused search for clients looking to buy their dream house or apartment in the Harrogate area, that best matches their needs, wants and lifestyle. Traditional estate agents typically work for the seller, Source Harrogate works for the buyer.

We are the only property search and buying agency focusing exclusively on the Harrogate area, which includes Knaresborough, Ripley and surrounding villages like Weeton, Sicklinghall and Follifoot.

We provide a full needs analysis; an active, focused property search and review; effective negotiation skills and an independent personal service to help you secure your chosen property at the best terms.

Clients have frequently appointed Source Harrogate as soon as they have made the decision to move, to oversee the whole house sale and purchase process. In such cases, we have overseen every aspect of the sale and secured exceptional results. This has placed our clients in a strong position for their onward purchase which we have secured and concluded with excellent success.




” We provide a personal service for a small number of clients at any one time, to make a big difference to their situation. We are very pleased that every new client, in 2018 and 2019, looking to purchase their next home came to us following a strong personal recommendation from a previous client.” Sheree Foy FNAEA, Principal.

Source Harrogate was established in 2015 by Sheree Foy following twenty years in the corporate world including multiple relocations, both in the UK and overseas. From that time and onwards, Sheree has conducted many premium property searches and transactions in different towns, cities and countries. This provided a range of experience in securing premium residential property. Sheree is a licensed and professionally qualified estate agent, a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and Source Harrogate is a member of  The Property Ombudsman and is Propertymark protected.

Source Harrogate – The Property Finders, specialises in premium property transactions within 20 km of Harrogate. Sheree and her family chose to settle in Harrogate. She loves living here in a property she sourced off market and is dedicated to helping others have a successful and smooth move in the area.

Source Harrogate has helped clients make an important change to their lifestyle, often breaking their property gridlock by ensuring a successful house sale, before securing their desired home, frequently off market, at best terms.





Following a highly successful 2018 Source Harrogate, the property finders boosted its capacity and expertise with the addition of Ian Foy MA (Cantab) MBA CDir as a partner. Ian, a Chartered Director of the Institute of Directors has operated at CEO/MD level for around 20 years, is a seasoned non-executive director and chair with experience covering many sectors and includes presently housing and executive education.


Examples of the impact of our service include:

  • Sourced and secured off market, a hidden gem satisfying all the client’s criteria including specific mobility requirements enabling clients to move closer to family and spend more time with grandchildren and less time commuting across Yorkshire. Client subsequently appointed Source Harrogate as property consultant to oversee the sale of previous home.
  • Source Harrogate managed the sale and onward purchase of clients whose dream was to give up the day jobs and become full time artists. The new home would need to support this, with criteria also including enough workshop space and outbuildings. Their dream became a reality, and with extraordinary savings above their fee – click here to read a feature about the artistic couple in the Yorkshire Post.
  • Secured off market a family home with a highly unusual large plot for central Harrogate and using knowledge of relevant works required, secured at a significantly reduced price. This provided clients with a home only a five minute walk from the town centre with shops, restaurants, cinemas, train station and the Stray to support a family’s changing needs over the coming years.
  • Secured and negotiated a price reduction on a family home in exactly the clients’ perfect location, within six months of being appointed, for clients who had previously tried unsuccessfully for over three years to secure a suitable property in their desired location.
  • Successfully led the sale at guide price of clients’ property within a week of launch and negotiated a saving over six times our fee on the onward purchase property within a few weeks of its launch to market.
  • Secured a prestigious property off market in one of Harrogate’s most desirable locations, before any other buyers could view it, enabling our clients to proceed with their lifestyle change.
  • Secured a home well beyond the brief and far exceeding our clients’ expectations in terms of location, accommodation, features and condition seven days after being appointed.
