Since 2001 Hodsons Property Management have provided us with a professional, friendly and efficient service always keeping us well informed with regards to properties, tenants and up to date with any changes to regulation requirements. Most importantly they have provided us with good tenants and very little rental downtime throughout. We sincerly recommend Hodsons for your Property Management requirements.

      I can't recommend them highly enough.
      We first started using Hodsons approximately 15 years ago when we converted old office space into apartments in the centre of Wakefield. They quickly vetted applicants and let these premises. Since that time we have placed all our varied premises with them on full maintenance contracts. Their sales, vetting, inspections, cleaning and maintenance staff are very efficient and reliable. I can't recommend them highly enough.

        We have moved house eight times during the last 45+ years, the most recent being in the summer of 2014.

Our house was well presented and sold quickly. Perhaps most importantly, we were treated as individuals and kept informed at each stage in the process.We would have no hesitation in recommending Hodsons to other potential house vendors

      • Seller Testimonial

        I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their services
        My experience of selling my parent's deceased estate through Hodsons was first rate. James has his 'finger on the pulse' with respect to higher-value properties in the Wakefield area and he was very sensitive to the circumstances of my sale.Their sales particulars did absolute justice to the quality of our family house, which I'm sure helped to sell it quickly. James and his staff were professional and friendly throughout the selling process and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their services.
        April 2015 Mr Hunt
      • Seller Testimonial

        nothing was too much trouble

        James, a big thank you for selling my house! Your team were fantastic and certainly put other 'larger' Wakefield based estate agents to shame. The level of customer care shown was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Hodson's Estate Agents to other sellers.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Hodsons were head and shoulders above them

        Out of all the Solicitors and Estate Agents we had contact with during the buying and selling process Hodsons were head and shoulders above them in terms of professionalism, level headedness and responding to queries.

        April 2016 Mr and Mrs Linsell

      • Buyer Testimonial

        I felt that James was highly professional in his dealings with us and worked effectively to secure a mutually agreeable financial arrangement between ourselves and the vendors.
        November 2015 Mr Young
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Hodsons were very supportive throughout the sale
        We initially looked at a house with Hodsons which wasn't exactly what we were looking for. James was aware of what we wanted and contacted me when they took on a house which had previously been with another agent. I had missed this house on Rightmove and it had not been proposed by the other agent (despite looking at other properties with them), possibly as it was priced lower than others we were looking at. The house was perfect for us. Hodsons were very supportive throughout the sale. If James hadn't been aware of our search criteria we wouldn't have seen the house which met so many of our requirements.
