Who we are 

Lifestyle Sales and Lettings is an independent Estate Agent perfectly situated between the much sought after areas of Ramsbottom and Edenfield. We are just minutes from the motorway which makes properties anywhere within Lancashire and Greater Manchester easily accessible for viewings and valuations. We are a local High Street Agent, though the warm friendly office is based just out of the village itself, but has presence on the busiest road into Ramsbottom.

Our commitment

We like to support our local community and intend on keeping the Estate Agency as a Traditional High Street Agent. This enables our customers to be given a happy face-to face-service that they recognise from the moment they have first contact, until the keys are handed over. We pride ourselves on a great personal, professional service that has lead us into having many long-lasting relationships over the years. Our business has been based mainly on referrals, and word of mouth also with such a fantastic dynamic team, we are certain you won’t be disappointed.

Meet The Team

Melanie Duffin


I am the director of Lifestyle Sales And Lettings and have been in property for 10 years. Before that, I travelled extensively and was a Personal Trainer for several years. I started the business myself with only a few properties 10 years ago as a lettings agency, and as my family of 3 boys had grown a little, I felt it was time to expand into sales too. I pride myself on having such an amazing team of people working with me, who are committed and incredibly loyal, I feel so fortunate to have them.

Out of work time, I like to spend time in France and love competing in Trail running, Triathlons, Ski Touring and Telemark Skiing. My goals this year is to expand the business and to compete in a Half Ironman in France.

Niall Hicks


Originally from Northern Ireland, I came to England to experience the university life and the pace of the big cities. I’ve been in property now for several years and find it extremely rewarding to find people their dream homes. When I’m not in the office you’ll find me working on my family home or enjoying the countryside and its fine dining.

Christopher Buckley

Property Valuer

After completing 8 years in the British Army I decided to leave for family reasons and return to the property industry. My role at Lifestyle Sales and Lettings is property valuer and negotiator, I will talk and walk you through both the lettings and sales process at your speed. I’m always there to talk to should you have any queries. In my spare time, I enjoy quiet family time, I also train a local football team as well as refereeing Sunday football games.

Elaine Walker

Accounts & Lettings Co-Ordinator

I have now worked for Lifestyle for ten years after having previously worked in accounting and finance. My job role here is accounts and any financial dealings as well as handling the inspections of our managed portfolio. I have watched Lifestyle thrive and grow from the beginning so the sales market is a very exciting prospect. Away from work, I enjoy family time, socialising with friends and the odd party here and there! My goal for this year is to assist the team as we continue to expand.

Jodie Anderson

Maintenance Manager 

I have now been a member of the Lifestyle team for over three years. Following the completion of my degree, I decided that my strengths lay within customer service and strive to provide a stress free experience for our landlords and tenants. As maintenance manager, my job role is predominantly aiming to solve any issues quickly and effectively. In my spare time, you can usually find me shopping or dining out!

We transferred to Lifestyle from an online estate agent who had been advertising our property for sale for around 6 months. Our property was not selling and the calibre of the viewers coming around was starting to become frustrating. As a result, we looked at other local high street based estate agents and a friend recommended Lifestyle.

We weren’t disappointed, within 2 weeks we had serious viewers and our property sold within 6 weeks of being on the market for the price advertised. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received from all of the team and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their house in the Ramsbottom area.
