Craig Sugden


I am a hands on Director who gets involved with every part of our business and have over 15 years’ experience as an estate agent, all within the local area. After starting my career with the large corporate company William H Brown (Bradford branch,) I progressed quickly becoming branch partner in Dewsbury, Morley and Halifax. I started with Coubrough & Co in 2013 as Managing Director and have recently become owner director of  this successful, well established brand. I am proud to hold offices in Birkenshaw, Wyke and Mirfield which covers Bradford, Kirklees, Leeds Calderdale and Huddersfield postcodes. Having a passion for estate agency and a secure knowledge of the local area helps in delivering accurate valuations of clients homes. These combined experiences have given me the skills and knowledge to deliver an efficient and customer focussed service for our clients.

In-House Mortgage Broker

I have worked in Financial Services since I left University in 1998. I have worked as a broker since 2002 and have spent the last 12 years working with both corporate and independent estate agents.After reaching 40 I decided it was time to try something new so it was a great coincidence that the owners of Coubrough & Co approached me to come and partner with their estate agency and provide a first class service to their clients but also the opportunity to work for myself and develop my own business.
