    • Seller Testimonial

      The staff were really friendly

      We were very happy with the service provided by Richard Kendalls. They were a massive help throughout and were able to offer advice re making our house more saleable, for example, adding a premium listing. The staff were really friendly and always willing to answer questions.

      We had more contact with them after the sale of the property which was unexpected but yet nice to have.  They were very helpful with dealing with our buyers who were pushy and very keen and so kept their feet on the ground.

      D & R - June 2016

I was kept informed at all times and would be VERY happy to recommend this branch to anybody looking for expert and friendly treatment when selling their house. Brilliant!!!

      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.

      on hand every step of the way

      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

      Excellent communication

      Many thanks to Sarah and Alison who managed the sale of my property. They kept me up to date on everything right from the start of the selling process right to completion.

      Excellent communication both a real asset to the Richard Kendall team. Thank you.

      R Clamp - April 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would highly recommend

      Having sold our home through Richard Kendal Normanton, I would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking about selling or even buying. The whole team kept us informed every step of the way no matter how small the matter was.

      I had regular updates and any chasing that had to be done they did for us. It made the whole issue of selling our home less stressful with the help of the Richard Kendall team. Also their solicitors which we used were quick, informative, professional and completed the Kendall team 100%.

      Thank you to everyone at Richard Kendell & Beaumont Solicitors.

      John M - March 2016

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      the only one consistent thing we could count on

      We have recently bought a house marketed by Richard Kendall. It has not been an easy process, with a very complex chain involved in all areas- the only one consistent thing we could count on was the support of Karen. From the day we made an offer, Karen has had our best interests at heart; she has been the perfect go between for all parties, and so very understanding and considerate.She has fought for both her seller's and buyer's best interests throughout, and always with complete honesty and clarity. If we were to ever sell (highly unlikely!!), we would certainly opt to do so with Karen, and Richard Kendall.

      Bryony - August 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      keeping me up to date every step of the way

      Jason - July 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      professional, organised, friendly

      I have recently purchased a house advertised by Richard Kendall in Normanton. From beginning to end of the process I have found them to be professional, organised, friendly and highly competent; even to the extent of contacting me with information that my own selling agent hadn't bothered to pass on.  They have made a stressful experience much more bearable and I would recommend them without hesitation.

      Tom - July 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I will use when I come to sell in the future.

      Big thank you to both of you for your help during the process. I have been kept up to date all the way through and all requests have been dealt with quickly.
