    Gareth Newby - Branch Manager
    I've been living and working in Headingley, both selling and renting houses, for 20 years - and I love the way it has evolved. I can see the first apartment I rented from my office window. I have a strong desire to make moving home more like a friendship and less like a business transaction. I now live in Adel with my family, and enjoy managing my son's local football team.

    Sarah-Jane Taylor - Head of Lettings
    Making sure I can find people their ideal home to rent is a topic very close to my heart as much as making sure Landlords are well looked after. I am strong believer in not only talking about what I can do as your lettings agent but demonstrating that, too. Actions speak louder than words! First-class customer service and a passionate proactive approach offer the right formula to get you moving to your new home.

    Don't just take our word for it!
    • Introduction

      In our first year, Preston Baker has been recognised by the Sunday Times for it's outstanding work and commitment to customer service. Here is some feedback from landlords and tenants who have used our service.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      You are in safe hands

      Both Cathy Evans and Marie Poole go the extra mile when finding suitable tenants and then looking after the property once those tenants are in. Communication through all forms is always fast and polite with your needs and requirements fully understood. As a landlord they will be my first point of call when renting out further houses within York. Rest assured you're in safe hands.

      Mr E

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Great communication and always professional

      Fantastic service from Marie Poole, Cathy and all in the letting management team. Great communication and always professional. I would recommend all to use their service in finding a tenant.

      Mr M

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Will definately use them for my next buy-to-let
      The Preston Baker lettings team found me a great tenant in just a couple of days. Will definitely use them for my next buy-to-let property.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      a job well done
      I write to express my thanks for a job well done by Cathy Evans and her colleagues in finding tenants for our property. It is (unfortunately) rare that I am motivated to write a letter of thanks for excellent service, but this is one such occasion. I originally contacted Preston Baker and two other agents to assess a property which I was considering letting. At that time Cathy Evans did the valuation though I managed to find a tenant privately. I explained this to Cathy in one of her follow up calls and she told me she would keep in touch on a regular basis - she did just that. Notably the others didn't. When I decided to let a different property I asked Cathy to do an assessment and advise on value. It was patently clear from that visit and subsequent conversations that she was tuned in to the market with a very clear picture of target market and spot-on with rental values. After every viewing she called to give feedback. She let me have a breakdown of website stats when requested, with a clear understanding of the numbers and their implications- this is simple stuff but not many people do it! After about two weeks the property was let and all paperwork and processing handled without a hitch. It has been an excellent experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending Preston Baker to anybody trying to make a choice from a myriad of estate agents promising the earth. I would be grateful if you would pass on my thanks to Cathy.

      Award Winning Service
      • Introduction

        We are delighted that a large proportion of our new business comes from the recommendations of those who have already tried us. We're proud to share some of the feedback we've received from clients and customers.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        truly feel that Preston Baker were the best by far
        Preston Baker sold our property within a year, which we were over the moon about as we were actually considering auctioning our property. We had been up for sale for quitw some time ans also with different estate agents, and we truly feel that Preston Baker were the best by far.
      • Seller Testimonial

        all in all it took 6 weeks to sell our property
        I have just sold my property with Preston Baker in leeds. I had received a leaflet from them advertising that if they dont sell your house in 8 weeks they knock off £300 of the fee. I was interested and Chris Holroyd came to see myself and my husband. He was very confident with the market which was a lot different to all the glum thoughts of other agents and mentioned he had 2 people looking in our area for properties. We went onto the market and within 1 week we had 3 viewings on our home. All in all it took 6 weeks to sell our property which Chris seemed dissapointed in this but we could not believe in this market that this would happen. We can not thank Chris and his team any more for there efforts and wish them all the best in the future! regards Julia and Eric
      • Seller Testimonial

        their proactive approach...was clear to see
        Preston Baker excelled in selling our property. Having been with a larger estate agent and had little interest in the property we decided to switch to Preston Baker. Their involved approach was evident from the off, with a house visit and recommendations as to how to sell the property and we saw more people through the door. We had regular updates from them and having not sold thwe property they again came and did a visit, recommended further improvements we could make (which didn\'t cost a lot of money) and within a month the property sold. We also looked at properties with them at the time of selling and their proactive approach both in selling our property and others was clear to see. I believe it was this approach that helped us sell the property and rate them very highly.
      • Seller Testimonial

        service received from this Company was exceptional
        I moved my property to Preston Baker from another local agent and they Sold my property within a good timescale. The service I received from this Company was exceptional, nothing was a problem to them and they guided me through the process with ease! I had had bad experiences with Estate Agents in the past and using Preston Baker has changed my view point. I mainly dealt with the Branch Manager, Chris Holroyd and from him valuing my property to completion he took time to make sure everyting was going to our liking and that we understood what was happening. I am very grateful to Chris and the team at Preston Baker for assisting myself and my family to sell our property with such professionalism and expertise. Thank you very much.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Thank you Preston Baker.
        From putting the house on the market with Preston Baker there were several viewings in the first few weeks, with an offer made by a Buyer in the sixth week, which entailed dropping the price a little. The sale proceeded with a couple of issues that had to be dealt with, and the sale was completed within 13 weeks of the offer being accepted; the unprecedented banking fiasco that suddenly developed at the exchange-stage had caused a slight delay in the final completion date. Throughout the period all the staff at Preston Baker were very helpful and friendly and kept me informed of all developments, which was very welcome. Thank you Preston Baker.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Preston Baker stood out from all the other agents
        My husband and I have been looking for a property in North Leeds for over a year. We sold our property and moved into rental accommodation, so we we\'re good to go as soon as the right property came along. Preston Baker stood out from all the other agents in the area. They were superb. They actively sought properties for us, canvassing for properties meeting our requirements and called us as soon as a property which may be suitable for us was appraised by them. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a first point of call to purchasers trying to find a property. They were professional, helpful and above all, pro-active.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        friendly and helpful, right from the beginning,
        Working with Preston Baker was incredibly easy. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, right from the beginning, keeping me updated at all times on the progression of the purchase. Highly recommended!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Incredibly impressed with the service
        Incredibly impressed with the service from Preston Baker - from a first time buyers perspective they made everything seem very easy. From initial viewings and weekly update phone calls to handling our inane first time buyer questions and requests. Would happily recommend to friends and family, and will definitely use again if the need arises. And the bottle of fizz on completion day was a lovely touch!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        commend the service we received through PB
        I got in touch with Preston Baker to arrange a viewing of a property in Meanwood and from that point Gareth was in regular and helpful touch to suggest properties that we might be interested in. Ultimately, we have had an offer accepted through another estate agent but I wanted to commend the service we received through PB. I felt listened to and I thought the advice and options were honestly and constructively given. We also enjoyed the viewing experiences we had helped by Ian. I\'d certainly recommend them.
