    Richard Kendall - Founder FNAEA
    Richard is now approaching his 45th year of selling and renting houses in the Wakefield and surrounding area. He has built up a considerable CV since 1969, surviving a few recessions, the miners strike of 1975, the booms and bust years of the late 1990's, and our current global economic crisis which doesn't seem to be abating anytime soon. Despite all of this, Richard is still here as strong as ever, despite the efforts of his children to take an easier life. Saying that, we really wouldn't want him anywhere else.

    Claire Kendall - Partner MNAEA
    Claire was sent away by her Mum and Dad (Jennifer and Richard Kendall) to University to become a Chartered Surveyor. Instead of coming straight into the family firm, Claire decided to make her mark with a major property company in London and after 7 years decided to transfer within that company to her base in Leeds to be nearer home of course. After a short while Claire decided what in common terms is stated as a 'no brainer', instead of working for somebody else 10 miles up the road, it would be better to join the family firm, along with her brother Simon, who had already been with the company 12 years. Claire now oversees the overall running of the our house sales department and deals with the company's administration responsibilities.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      used her expertise to guide me through

      Thanks to all the staff at Richard Kendall and in particular Catherine Kilbride. Catherine was excellent. She constantly kept me up to date and advised me on my numerous issues.

      My circumstances were slightly different but she used her expertise to guide me through the sales process. She was professional, patient, polite and friendly. She built rapport quickly and professionally and made the whole process far less stressful than it may have been.

      Thank you.

    • Seller Testimonial

      genuine empathy for the situation

      Richard Kendall Estate Agents were excellent in general, and Liz was wonderful! She always acted promptly with excellent communication and went out of her way to reassure us when things got sticky after our first buyer pulled out at short notice. Even when things go smoothly moving house is stressful and it makes such a difference to deal with someone who has genuine empathy for the situation and the ability to get things done.

      I cannot recommend Liz highly enough. Can't I award 6 stars!

      Wheelie - June 2016

      Sharon - April 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      Excellent customer service. Hassle free!

      Excellent customer service. Hassle free! The valuation of my property was in line with others I had received, but I chose Richard Kendall as my experience of them from the buyer perspective was far superior to any of the other local estate agents. I was allocated a named consultant who kept up to date with everything and was always happy for me to call up and ask questions. Although my house took quite a while to sell, I chose to stay with Richard Kendall, rather than swap agents, mainly due to the friendly, professional and timely service I received from Liz Cooke (Senior Property Consultant) and the team.

      All requests for viewings were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We had a lot of viewings on our property and we always received feedback from the agents. From beginning to end, I felt that at least this part of the process was straight forward and hassle free. Unlike other agents that I was in contact with looking for my new property, Richard Kendall always called back when they said they would and I was never left chasing anything. I was regularly updated and offered help and guidance about marketing options and the opportunity to reprice, but was never pushed into anything. Very happy.

      Gemma - April 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      They were very reliable and easy to contact.

      Richard Kendall's provided us with a friendly, helpful and efficient service when selling our house. They kept us up to date and informed about prospective viewings and gave us prompt feedback even whilst we were living out of the country. They were very reliable and easy to contact.

      Tony & Jude - April 2016

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional, polite and very efficient

      I would like to highly recommend Joanne and Amanda, for their support and service during the selling of our house. It got stressful and time consuming when we were messed about by our buyer. Joanne and Amanda all the way through gave great support through the difficult times. They both were very supportive and friendly as well as very professional, polite and very efficient. always knew what was happening before anyone else. Thank you so much.

      N Roberts - April 2016

      Thank you

    • Seller Testimonial

      took the stress out of selling

      As absentee and overseas property owners Amanda and Joanne were extremely helpful throughout the sales process. They were either available, or very prompt at responding to our questions and liaised on our behalf in the background with rentals. They took the stress out of selling the house and were able to recommend an excellent solicitor.

      brilliant from start to finish

      I would like to say a huge thank you to Liz! She has been brilliant from start to finish and kept me well informed of all developments at every stage.

      As a solo FTB this could have been a daunting experience, but Liz's friendly and approachable manner made it the complete opposite.  I will remember your phone call to let me know my offer had been accepted for a long time to come!!

      H Simpson - June 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I found them to be very pro-active

      We were not clients of Richard Kendall as we were the buyers, but I found them to be very pro-active, which helped push the process along as our solicitors could be slow and we are also very busy people.

      I think they provided a great service. Only downside, is that I think they could do with providing much better photographs of the properties.

      Pro-active - May 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      fantastic progressing things along

      Liz has been fantastic progressing things along. I can highly recommend Liz and wouldn't hesitate in using her again.

      Liam - December 2015

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I would highly recommend them

      I recently bought a property using Richard Kendall and dealt with their Wakefield office. The service I received was second to none. This made the buying process really easy and enjoyable. I had previously viewed a number of houses with Richard Kendal and every time they were just as helpful and knowledgeable about the properties.  I would highly recommend them.

      Thank you.
