About Simply Lettings


Simply Lettings are an independent company with over 24 years' experience of residential lettings and property management. Based in Bingley West Yorkshire, and covering the surrounding towns and villages of the Aire Valley and Wharfedale, we have an in-depth knowledge of the local rental market.

Unlike estate agents, our business is 100% dedicated to lettings and property management and we have no other interests, such as property sales or property development, to distract us from what we do best.

For your peace of mind, we are fully regulated by the UK's foremost professional body ARLA, and also utilise a Government-backed Tenancy Deposit Protection Service scheme and a verified Client Bank Account for holding monies.



Director Profile


Julie Craven M.A.R.L.A


Julie has worked within the lettings and property management industry for over 24 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Julie has lived within the AireValley region all her life making her very familiar with the area and local market.

Julie says “The Aire Valley lettings' market is very buoyant and shows no signs of slowing down. Renting in the area has become extremely popular and there is a real need for people to have access to a dedicated lettings' service delivered by professionals.”

Julie has worked for both local independent and corporate agencies in the past, which has given her the experience and understanding to let a wide variety of properties as well as deal with day-to-day property management tasks.

“My aim is to provide a first class service, specialising completely within lettings and property management. I have worked for estate agents in the past and found that they often handle lettings as a secondary venture within their business concentrating their efforts more towards property sales. I understand lettings is a very different business to sales, requiring a variety of skills of which many estate agents simply have no experience or natural inclination.”

“Many larger agencies also operate centralised departments to deal with different aspects of the letting and property management process. I have established Simply Lettings to offer a personal, local, dedicated lettings' service ensuring you deal with the same person all the time”.

Julie is also a member of ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) providing landlords and tenants with the reassurance that she is a qualified professional and follows a strict code of conduct.

“I have a committed, proactive approach and look forward to being able to provide a friendly and efficient letting and management service to prospective clients.”
