    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Communication has been quick and clear
      Every step of the selling process has been made simple by the fabulous Lisa and her colleagues. From first valuation through till completion Richard Kendall has smoothed the path and communication has been quick and clear. We are very very grateful. Worth every penny. Thank you.

      Vanessa - July 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Went above and beyond their remit
      Excellent service from all the team @R.K.  Pontefract. Lisa Wood went above and beyond their remit to keep us posted on ALL aspects of our Sale/Purchase. Grateful thanks to everyone concerned. Would highly recommend to anyone. Shame that solicitors are not to the same high standard.

      B Taylor - June 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      very professional and really helpful
      Excellent estate agents - very professional and really helpful.Top marks to Lisa Wood - senior consultant who always answered my calls and was always willing to help...I can highly recommend Richard Kendall (the Pontefract branch).

      Jo - June 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      held no stress or trauma for us at all
      Every point of contact we had with the Pontefract team was professional and friendly. I could not recommend Lisa highly enough. Every step of the way Lisa was on hand to answer any questions I had, no matter how small or daft. Her experience and knowledge made her my first point of call, superseding the solicitor!We had marketed our property a couple of years earlier with another agent, which was part of a national franchise. 

      Although we received some viewings, it was obvious that some of those had been pushed through by the agent. Every viewing we had from Kendall's was genuine. We were the end of the chain but the whole experience held no stress or trauma for us at all, not least because of the open, relaxed and friendly attitude of Lisa and all in branch.

      Sarah - May 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      she kept me up to date

      Clint - March 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Over the past 2 years I have sold 2 houses
      Over the past 2 years I have sold 2 houses and negotiated a letting with Kendall's. Donna and Kelly could not have been any more professional, friendly, competent or effective. 

      As a result I would not hesitate in recommending either branch of the business.
