    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional, ever patient and always calming

      An excellent valuer who was reassuring, professional and very patient. A very positive introduction to the Kendall team.  Lisa has been the main point of contact for the majority of time during the property's promotion and eventual sale. An absolute star and source of timely information and updating. Professional, ever patient and always calming at times of unexpected delays and buyer related procrastinations. Thank you Lisa and also Donna, who was key contact in the earlier stages.

      Grumpy Gran - August 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      definitely went above and beyond in her job

      Lisa Wood definitely went above and beyond in her job. 5 stars really isn't enough to give her. I found Lisa through researching the best estate agents, finding Richard Kendall.Lisa has to be ranked number 1 with all the good positive reviews, I have read and heard and also through my own experience. Lisa's excellence is really solid and consistent. As a first time home buyer, I really couldn't be happier that I found Lisa.Following are the things that I think Lisa has been consistently exceeded:

      1. Expertise - We all know that the quickest way to know a person's level of knowledge is by asking tons of questions (I didn't do it on purpose. It's just what first home buyers do and me being myself). I couldn't recall the specific questions that I've asked Lisa but I was very impressed every time when I got the response from her. Her expertise and timely response makes her really reliable but more so comforting to me.

      2. Timely communication - Lisa has so many clients at her hands but I was amazed by how she was still able to respond to my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. It's not just about the deliver on time; it's the accuracy of her response and the knowledge she has that really makes the whole home buying process smooth.

      3. Care - This is where I really think Lisa went above and beyond. Being guided through the process, step by step. Being spoke to in a manner a friend would, being looked after like a family member is something nowadays I do not come to expect but with Lisa I found all the above came so natural to her.A true gem of a individual, a knowledgeable person, a true professional !!

      Thank you Lisa, thank you so much!!

      Donna all the way through was a great support

      I would like to highly recommend Donna, for her support and excellent service for us when we were selling our house. It got tricky when we were messed about buyers. Donna all the way through was a great support through the difficult times.

      We found her to be very professional, friendly and polite and very efficient. always knew what was happening before anyone else, a great source of knowledge on the housing market. Donna for me was like having a friend selling your house, holding your hand all the way, always happy to help, and nothing was too much trouble.I would not hesitate to recommend Donna and the branch to anyone selling or buying there house.

      Thanks again Donna for the support and great service you gave.

      Throughout the process I was regularly updated

      I recently marketed and sold my property using Richard Kendal Pontefract branch. The agents fees were very well priced in comparison with competitors. Throughout the process I was regularly updated by Donna who was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable.

      If I ever require estate agents in the future I would without doubt be contacting Donna Woodward.

      superb during the entire sales process

      The professional service provided by Donna has been superb during the entire sales process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Donna and the team at Pontefract to anybody, and have already done so.

      Chris F - March 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional, knowledgeable, energetic, pro-active

      I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough. She is professional, knowledgeable, energetic, pro-active and truly cares about her clients. She always has her finger on the pulse and is fully aware of all the viewings and follows them up and then, when sold, continues to put in 100% effort to ensure everything progresses smoothly.Without her input the sale would have been far more lengthy and stressful.

      Thank you Lisa, you deserve great success.

      P & B S - March 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      Lisa at Richard Kendall was fantastic from start to finish, from marketing the property to having numerous offers on the table, within 5 days she negotiated the best deal for ourselves and was professional and at times went above and beyond expectation to make the process a smooth one, anyone selling or thinking of it should defiantly give them a call, we will use these again and again.

      I feel they went the extra mile

      Really good, honest communication from the Richard Kendall team.

      Donna and Lisa were always available and whatever was promised actually happened. A rare thing in this day and age. Great liaison with all stakeholders including Purchaser and Solicitors. I feel they went the extra mile and nothing was too much trouble.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      she was very knowledgeable, always kept me updated

      Although it was a long drawn out affair, due to the lender, I found Lisa the most helpful with everything, she was very knowledgeable, always kept me updated, even before my solicitor. Cannot praise her enough!

      Helen - August 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      extremely informative from the start

      Absolutely amazing service from this estate agent and big thanks to Lisa. As first time buyers with 8 weeks to purchase and move we were very nervous and had loads of what I call silly questions, Lisa Wood was extremely informative from the start and very helpful. Lisa responded to daily emails very quickly with no end of help and advice.  We had a few hiccups along the way but Lisa resolved these within a few days and informed us every step of the way, which put our minds at ease. We can't thank you enough now we can relax in our new home.  Many thanks again Lisa and the team.

      Samantha L & David B - July 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      She kept me in the loop at all times

      As a first time buying I was totally naïve to the whole buying a house process but Lisa at Pontefract branch has been amazing. She kept me in the loop at all times, answered all my queries at any time (I had lots) was beyond helpful and polite always and just overall made my purchasing of the property not stressful at all and I would highly recommend Richard Kendall.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      always efficiently chased

      Lisa was absolutely fabulous when it came to helping me and my partner with sorting out our property, she always efficiently chased when we needed her to and calmed me down when I became very stressed with the situation because of things that occurred with the solicitors.She by far is the nicest lady I have ever spoken with and her customer service is magnificent and she knows her role well and you really do sense she cares and it is very rare you find this from people. One word to sum Lisa up would be Fantastic and she deserves everything that is good to happen to her.
