    Hi! I'm James Kendall
    image cannot be displayed
    Thanks for checking our page out I'd like to tell you a bit about who we are and what we do!

    At James Kendall we're proud to do things differently because we believe there is a better way.

    There's not many things I can say I hate in life but long contracts and sleazy salesmen are definitely up there!
    That's why at James Kendall we don't tie our sellers into long contracts they can't get out of, I believe if you're not providing the service promised, customers should have the right to fire you!

    Which is why we offer a 0 week contract, No longer enjoy working with us? Thats fine, there's no hidden catch, just give us two weeks notice.

    What else do we do differently?

    You've probably seen our state of the art 3D Walkthroughs where you can effectively view a house from your mobile, tablet or desktop.

    We also take great pride in knowing what we're selling for example:

    Which way does the Garden face?

    What is the Schooling like?

    What Council tax band is the property?

    The London exodus is creeping in to Bedford and buyers come to Bedford for the transportation links, and being able to provide them with what's important for them can be the difference between selling your home.

    We're here to help, If you'd like some advice on buying or selling feel free to pop into our home themed office!

    No pressure, no hard sell, Just great service.

So you're thinking about selling...

    Get a market appraisal of your home

    So maybe you've outgrown your home or now is the time for you to sell and you want to get an idea of what it could be worth.

    At James Kendall Estate Agents, our experienced valuers are experts in the local property market, delivering accurate valuations every day across Bedfordshire.

    They benefit from on-going training to ensure we always provide up to date market appraisals helping you understand what your house is worth.

    We provide FREE valuations whether you are:
    • Thinking about selling a property
    • Selling for probate
    • A family member is going into residential care
    • Just interested in finding out the value of your home

    Obtaining an accurate valuation is vital, particularly if you're looking to sell. When a property first comes onto the market that's when you are likely to receive the most amount of interest.

    Therefore, it's essential to set the right price at the very start of the process, when interest is greatest.

    How much does a valuation cost?

    At James Kendall Estate Agents all of our valuations are free of charge.

    I'm not sure I would like to sell now, Can I still get a valuation?

    Many of our customers are simply interested in the value of their home and do not want to sell straight away.

    However, in our experience we know that having an accurate idea on price and market conditions is crucial when making decisions.

    Which areas do you cover?

    Our experienced estate agents value houses in Bedford, Kempston, and all of the surrounding towns and villages.

    I had an appraisal a year ago, do I need another one?

    The property market in the Bedford area is regularly changing so even if you received a valuation just six months ago you may be surprised by how much it's worth now.

    How do you work out what my house is worth?

    To enable us to give you the most accurate valuation we need to understand your individual requirements. For example any timescale you need to work towards and the age, square footage, condition and location of your property.

    We also keep a close eye on similar competing properties in the local area and we constantly assess the demand for each type of property from prospective buyers.

    I'd like to find a house to buy first before selling, when should I arrange a valuation?

    If you're not quite ready to put your house on the market knowing how much it's worth will help you understand which properties you can afford.

    At James Kendall Estate Agents we can help you not only sell your current home, but also find your next one.

    James
    I started this Estate Agency because like most people I was fed up with the way Estate Agents were perceived. Lets be honest with each other, when you think of "Estate Agent" you probably think cheap suit, big tie and wide-boy attitude.Lazy marketing (Slap it online and hope the phone rings!), failure to embrace technology and most importantly customer service are all too often overlooked.
    Which frustrates me as much as it frustrates you!

    At James Kendall we pride ourselves on doing things differently, not for the sake of doing it, but because we honestly believe there is a better way.

    I joined the team in December 2013 and have seen the business flourish over the past few years. Previously I had worked in Telecoms Support, Management and Sales for a multinational company.I met James when he had my own house up for sale in 2011, I had previously tried to sell with two different agents with little to no success and James was recommended to me by a family member.

    I am a big believer in our work ethic, methods and all round approach, which from our recommendations and repeat business speaks volumes

    Oscar is the office Dog (probably a first in Estate Agency) although he's not permanently based in our office (for obvious health and safety reasons) he is often deployed to check out the local parks and open spaces so that we can give the best info on the local routes for our purchasers!

    I have been a part of the business since the beginning (2011) taking on a number of roles from viewings, sales progression and much more!It's been incredibly exciting to see the business grow and prosper which I believe is down to our philosophy of providing excellent customer service.I worked as a civil servant in finance for over 20 years specialising in residential care so have a good working knowledge of the system and have helped a number of our clients with the difficult transition of moving a relative into residential care.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      James and his staff looked after everything. 
      James Kendall Estate Agents have provided an excellent service throughout the sale process and have gone"above and beyond" on several occasions. This has been so very helpful as I now live over 2 hours by car from the property and their "extra" service has saved me returning to the property to sort out various issues including the aftermath of an attempted break in. James and his staff looked after everything. I would use them again if I were selling another property. Thanks to the whole team.

      Mr Cadman - The Firs, Kempston

    • Seller Testimonial

      sold it within a couple of days to the right buyer
      We can't recommend this enthusiastic, professional and honest service enough. James Kendall put our house on the market for the right price and sold it within a couple of days to the right buyer. We were impressed with the support and communication from start to finish in what could have been a stressful process.

      Mr & Mrs Haslam - George Street, Clapham
    • Seller Testimonial

      like a breath of fresh air.
      We chose James Kendall Estate Agents in Bedford as they seemed to have a positive attitude to selling our house and had already sold my son's house having marketed it very well. 

      We were concerned that two other estate agents had not been able to sell our house, the first one over-valuing the property and the second not getting anyone to view and we were pleasantly surprised. James Kendall Estate Agents were like a breath of fresh air. 
      They made some constructive suggestions with regard to the garden and ways to market the property to the correct audience and we had viewings almost immediately. 

      They knew the price we would accept and only brought prospective buyers that were seriously interested and were in a position to proceed quite quickly, as my new job had already taken me to the South of England and the property was vacant. 

      When we received an offer on the property, James Kendall Estate Agents negotiated with the buyers on our behalf and, once the offer was accepted, dealt with all aspects of the solicitor's requirements for ourselves and the buyer, ensuring a clean and quick sale. 

      They kept us informed of the progress at all times. I would highly recommend James Kendall Estate Agents and cannot thank them enough for the way in which they handled the sale of our property. We are now in a beautiful home on the South Coast thanks to James and his team.

      Mrs Carter - York Street, Bedford

    • Seller Testimonial

      James & the team were simply brilliant.
      I was recommended to James Kendall by a friend who had sold with them and whilst I had heard good things I wasn't expecting to have sold my house with three days for the full asking price!

      We had a few complications below in the chain with mortgages and solicitors but James & the team were simply brilliant.
      They chased down the chain relentlessly and kept me updated throughout the process.

      Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

      Mr Kalsi - Westminster Gardens, Kempston.

      I highly recommend James Kendall to anyone 
      James and Michael sold our house in Kempston in July 2015, within 2 days being on the market. They were both very professional throughout the process, even though our purchase was a little difficult at times. Nothing was too much trouble and even provided assistance with the property we were purchasing. I highly recommend James Kendall to anyone wanting to sell their property. Thank you to you both.
