    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      great from start to finish

      After trying to sell my property with other agents and not being successful I moved my business to Richard Kendall. Alison & Sarah were great from start to finish and getting a sale very quickly.

      They were patient and professional at all stages of the sale process and gave me some great advice, I am an independent mortgage adviser so I know what makes a great agent! I would recommend Alison & Sarah to my clients after my experience selling my buy to let.

      Anon - May 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      so very professional

      I cannot express enough how helpful Karen was and so very professional. I felt she was always positive and extremely easy to chat along with. I do feel she had my best interests at all times.

      I would highly recommend using Richard Kendall's Normanton.

      Karen Dawson was on hand every step of the way, throughout the entire process she helped in every way possible.

      Nick - April 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      I cannot speak highly enough of Sarah and Alison

      I cannot speak highly enough of Sarah and Alison - we have been through a hugely stressful process in which we lost our sale twice in the course of a year due to deceitful buyers on one occasion and our buyers losing their buyers on the next occasion. Our sale finally completed yesterday following a harrowing couple of weeks caught up in the 'buy-to-let stamp duty hike' scramble. Throughout the year Richard Kendall Estate Agent have been professional, reliable, persistent and caring - helping us through a very difficult time. We would highly recommend the agency.

      We also highly recommend Beaumont Legal, who did the conveyancing for us. They were recommended by Richard Kendall and proved to be hard-working and extremely efficient (unlike the firm of solicitors our buyers used!) I can only say a huge thanks to everyone who worked on our case.

      Jackie - April 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      has been totally hassle free

      Hi I'm Tony Burrows from Altofts in Wakefield.

      I've decided over the past 2 years to reduce my portfolio & have dealt with various estate agents within my remit as a gas engineer/ plumber so I've had a good insight from clients selling & purchasing properties throughout the area.

      My personal experience with Richard Kendalls has been totally hassle free on the last three properties. They have always acted professionally following up on viewings & keeping you informed from start to finish.

      I would recommend this company without any hesitation.

      Kind regards. Tony Topgas.

      T Burrows - August 2015

    • Seller Testimonial

      over and above the call of duty

      Both these ladies (Sarah and Alison) were excellent to deal with as I had a rather difficult time with the conveyancing but both worked " over & above the call of duty "

      E Bennett - August 2015

    • Seller Testimonial

      advice excellent indicating professional acumen

      Not the easiest scenario - as Attorneys we were obliged to sell this property although we and the solicitor live 60 miles away. Karen Dawson (Office Manager) made it easier than anyone could envisage. When asked any questions her answers were prompt and her guidance/advice excellent indicating professional acumen and a wealth of successful experience. Communication was excellent. At every stage/development we were kept informed (news good or not so good) with clear, understandable information always delivered immediately with polite and cheerful optimism. Where delays occurred she applied gentle pressure - successfully.

      The service was simply outstanding. Recommended with confidence and without hesitation.
