Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    I would recommend this estate agent

    I was very pleased with communication throughout the sale of the property. I would recommend this estate agent to friends and family.

    Graham - February 2016

  • Seller Testimonial

    provided a fantastic service when I sold my house

    The team at Richard Kendall in Ossett provided a fantastic service when I sold my house. Melanie in particular deserves praise for the tenacity she displayed in her dealings with the purchasers.

    Melanie always provided prompt updates during the full sales process in what proved to be a somewhat more challenging sale than initially anticipated.I never thought that I'd say this about an estate agent but it is fair to say that Richard Kendall fully justified their fee in this transaction! Whilst I almost exclusively dealt with Melanie I got the impression that she was supported by a solid team of staff.

    Simon - January 2016

  • Seller Testimonial

    on the ball, quick to respond

    We used Richard Kendall for the sale of our property because we were impressed with the customer first approach and advice in the initial quoting process (albeit their prices proved competitive too). The agents were on the ball, quick to respond to queries and phone calls and provided good, useful feedback from viewers. What Richard Kendall (and especially Melanie) did, which was over and above our expectations and the level of service delivered elsewhere, was to chase the entire chain for updates (not just the elements they were responsible for). This proved particularly valuable in ensuring a complete communication loop between all parties involved. I felt very confident with the information being provided by Melanie and would definitely use Richard Kendall again - I only wish they had been the agents involved in our purchase as well!!

    E Bromley - January 2016

  • Seller Testimonial

    the sale would not of happened without her

    Melanie was brilliant she worked tirelessly on the sale of my property which was not an easy transaction. There were issues but Melanie faced these head on and took ownership and responsibility. She resolved things and the sale would not of happened without her. She is an asset to Richard Kendall.

    K - December 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    Melanie was very supportive

    My property was on the market for a period of time before finally being sold, this was in part due to time wasters renting the property on the proviso they purchased after 15 months. Unfortunately this didn't happen and my property was re-advertised for sale.

    The lady who eventually bought it rented it first while waiting for the sale of her house.Melanie was very supportive, advised me, kept in contact each month while things progressed with the sale. She even contacted me to keep me up to date with my sale (as I bought the ladys house eventually). They're helpful, supportive and on the doorstep, they know the area, sales and valuations and happy to be contacted for advise when you need it. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

    PJS - November 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    Nothing was ever too much for Mandy

    Well what can I say, I thought that mine may be a biased favourable opinion of Mandy because she treat me so well but it appears from the reviews I was not a 'special ' case.

    I felt like I was treat like a special vendor from the start of the sale process. Nothing was ever too much for Mandy. She kept me updated with viewings. Mandy also let me know the feelings of the prospective buyers that viewed my property while also retaining their interests as a buyer. Mandy is a credit to Richard Kendalls and to herself. In an often highly stressful situation for both parties Mandy remains professional throughout while also been caring and understanding to your problems. Brilliant service from Mandy and the rest of the Ossett branch who also deserve a thank you for their team spirit and customer service

    Deborah - November 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    she is relentless and persistent

    The 20th of November 2015 was definitely a date to remember, the completion of a house sale and purchase that at times didn't seem was ever going to happen and, I feel sure that if it wasn't for Melanie Robison's tenacity, professionalism and outstanding customer care that maybe it wouldn't have! Melanie always responded to phone calls and emails from myself and always kept me informed with regard to the challenges that just seemed to keep presenting themselves.

    She kept the whole thing going, liaising with me the Vendor, the Purchaser and the respective Solicitors'; at times she must have been absolutely exhausted, but one thing I have learned about Melanie is that she is relentless and persistent; she worked tirelessly to resolve issues and challenges that just seemed to keep coming our way. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard Kendal Estate Agents, and indeed have done so, and if you buy out of the Ossett office you will be in extremely safe hands with Melanie Robinson.

    Thank you Melanie.

    F Kinchin - November 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    dealt with everything promptly

    Many thanks to all at Richard Kendall especially Melanie. She dealt with everything promptly and professionally. Feedback to me was great as I work shifts she would send me e mail updates that I could pick up when convenient I. I was not left wondering why I had missed a call

    Tracy - October 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    I was very pleased with her manner

    Suzanne was excellent in her communication with myself regarding how the sale of "x" progressed, she always returned calls. I was very pleased with her manner on the telephone and I would be happy and have confidence in dealing with her again.

    M. MkCracken - October 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    sold our house within 2 days

    We sold our house within 2 days which was great news and through the process Mandy kept walking up to date as things progressed.

    She chased solicitors when things were moving too slowly and politely hounded them until they did what was required. Completion happened on time and delivered in part by Mandy's attentiveness.

    Thanks

    Chris B - September 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    She went the extra mile

    Melanie was fantastic, towards the end of the sale process we had difficulties with the rest of the chain and she did everything possible to resolve these issues, she went the extra mile!!

    Mr Cawley - September 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    sole intention was to sell

    There was a young woman called Mel who's sole intention was to sell with instruction in hand she searched the land and found a buyer her service was on fire.

    A little bit biased but thank you for all your help

    KS - September 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    telephone calls were always returned

    From the day that Mandy became our dedicated Negotiator she displayed not only tenacity but also determination that we would complete on our sale.

    Telephone calls were always returned with clear concise updates on all matters and without all her help and constant reassurance we would not be in our new home.

    Thank you Mandy and Melanie.

    Jean - September 2015

  • Seller Testimonial

    excellent!

    2 months from putting the property on the market to completion of sale. Was kept up to date with progress of the sale throughout this period.

     Excellent!

    K Oldroyd - September 2015

Testimonials from Buyers

  • Buyer Testimonial

    she has been there to offer help and advice

    Mandy has been an excellent help to ensure that the process leading up to my purchase has run smoothly. She has been there to offer help and advice throughout and has even gone the extra mile to fit around my working hours.

    Thank you Mandy!!

    Mandy - February 2016

  • Buyer Testimonial

    It was made much less stressful

    Melanie supported us throughout the process of buying our property. It was made much less stressful because she co ordinated everything liaising with everyone in the chain.

    We said that if the buyers solicitors had been as efficient, we would have been able to move quicker.

    We would like to thank her.

    E. Swift - November 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    such a great help

    Mandy was absolutely fantastic and such a great help when things weren't going to plan. It was a difficult sale with quite a few problems but Mandy got them sorted, I would like to add that the problems were nothing to do with Richard Kendall. She was very sympathetic and calming.

    Sharon - November 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Mandy was fantastic

    We bought our property in July. The seller changed price and date throughout the process which became most frustrating. Mandy was fantastic! She helped throughout with negotiation and "smoothed the waters" on many occasion.

    Lesley - November 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    regularly in contact and always reachable

    A thorough, helpful and personable service from Mandy from start to finish. She took ownership of our purchase from the initial offer through to completion and was more than helpful; we would likely still be waiting on paperwork and solicitors if it wasn't for Mandy's efforts. Mandy was very sympathetic to our personal situation and did everything she could to accommodate our tight deadline, she went above and beyond and was constantly back and forward between us, the seller and both parties' solicitors. Throughout she was regularly in contact and always reachable, in addition she was friendly and kept us in good spirits but was honest about any limitations in regards to hurrying solicitors along etc. In short; Mandy made our first home purchase bearable despite the personal complications and requirements we faced. In a confusing and sometimes frustrating/worrying process (solicitors) it was good to know Mandy was on our side whilst still upholding her commitments to the seller and keeping both sides happy.

    Thank you Mandy!

    Joe - October 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    thank you Mandy you were great

    Bought a property from Kendall's. It took 18 weeks to complete through no fault of Kendall's. We wish to thank Mandy for helping and keeping us updated. We learnt more from Mandy than we did from our own estate agent and solicitors combined.

    So thank you Mandy you were great. I am sure your seller was happy too.

    Peachie D - September 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    responded promptly to any queries we had

    Thanks to Suzanne and the team at Richard Kendall in Ossett. Suzanne kept us informed throughout our house purchase and responded promptly to any queries we had.

    We would definitely recommend using Richard Kendall estate agent.

    Jade & Johnathan - September 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Melanie Robinson was outstanding

    We would highly recommend Richard Kendall Estate Agent. Melanie Robinson was outstanding. Even though at times I felt I must have been a nuisance with little niggly questions, nothing was ever too much trouble for her. She went way above and beyond what was expected as regards chasing solicitors etc. The vendors had emigrated to Australia and Melanie regularly kept us updated with regards to the progress of our purchase and any queries we had. At all times she was patient and polite and had an extremely friendly manner. I honestly can't thank her enough as I feel had it been just left to the solicitors we'd still be waiting to move house!!!Thank you so much!!

    We also sold through Richard Kendall, Wakefield branch and both Amanda and Joanne were very helpful and friendly, always keeping us up to date. I don't plan on moving again but would highly recommend Richard Kendall's and would not hesitate to use them again.

    Jo - August 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Mandy was great and really worked at it

    Really impressed with Mandy, who worked hard to find us the right house, then facilitated the purchase, which had some complications, however Mandy was great and really worked at it, keeping us informed and greasing the wheels between the vendors, solicitors, and our financiers. We will be back at the Ossett branch soon for the next one. Thanks

    David - July 2015

  • Buyer Testimonial

    made me aware of what to expect

    From start to finish the service provided by Richard Kendalls was excellent.

    Both Suzanne Jordan & Mandy were helpful & professional through out the process. They made me aware of what to expect and constantly provided updates on the move throughout.Would highly recommend!!!
