    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

      Joanne and Amanda were fantastic.
      Joanne and Amanda were fantastic. We were badly let down by our buyer's solicitors, delaying our transfer by 48 hours.

      Joanne and Amanda kept us up to date and informed. They could not have done more.

      The Willows - April 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Absolutely fantastic service
      We have just sold and bought our new house through Kendalls.  Absolutely fantastic service, couldn't recommend them enough.  Amanda and Joanne, thanks a lot.

      Paul and Lisa - April 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      kept up to date with all developments
      I would just like to thank Liz for the very professional way in which she dealt with the recent sale of my parent's property. Despite not being in the country I was kept up to date with all developments by phone and email. The phone calls were particularly helpful and contact was made on a weekly basis. 

      Her advice was always helpful and considered and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. When Liz was not available I always found other members of the team helpful and constructive.

      Mrs O - April 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Thank you all so much to all the team.
      Richard Kendall, Wakefield, Estate Agents have been absolutely fantastic with my house sale and purchase (both with Kendall's). Elizabeth Cooke dealt with the whole process on my behalf so professionally and friendly, always taking my calls. 

      I cannot recommend them highly enough from initial valuation (David Savage) to my sale (Elizabeth Cooke) and my purchase (Amanda and Joanne). Thank you all so much to all the team.

      E Peacock - April 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Thrilled with the service
      Thrilled with the service that we received throughout the process of selling our house. Liz was wonderful and extremely professional, going above and beyond what we expected. She was always on call should we have any questions or required information from either the solicitors or the purchases. 

      Liz made regular calls to us, keeping up to date with any developments. Without the personal service that we received, I'm sure the whole process would have been much more stressful. Would have no hesitation in using Richard Kendall again.

      D Andrews - March 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      I will be asking for Liz by name
      It has been our pleasure to deal with Elizabeth Cooke at Richard Kendall. The experience of selling our house has been made as easy as possible with the help of Elizabeth and the team at Richard Kendall. 

      We would not hesitate to use this Estate Agent again. I will be asking for Liz, by name, when we come to sell our next property.

      T & R - March 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      professional and dedicated at all times
      I have recently sold a house via Richard Kendall estate agents. The house sale was managed by Elizabeth Cooke who was professional and dedicated at all times ensuring that the outcome reached was in everyone's best interest. 

      She was friendly and helpful throughout and nothing was too much trouble for her. She offered advice and guidance on what was at times a problematic sale and often went the extra mile to sort out any difficult issues when they arose. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard Kendall's if you are wanting to sell your house.
      Louise D - March 2017

      friendly and sensitive
      We are very pleased with the service we have received from Richard Kendall's, especially from Liz Cooke. Liz has provided us with a service which has been professional, friendly and sensitive in equal message. She has made a positive difference to a difficult and highly emotional task (selling the former family home due to my mother having to go into a care home) We would highly recommend her. Thank you very much to Liz and the other staff at Richard Kendall.

      C Edwards - February 2017

      Gone above and beyond
      Two ladies in the Wakefield branch - Shireen and Liz have worked their socks off to make it happen with the sale and purchase of our property.  They have both gone above and beyond and we're nearly there. Thank you both for all your hard work and keeping us informed at every step. Hopefully we will be in our new home shortly.

      Andrea - February 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Made us feel much more like friends
      With a wonderful charismatic personality, yet highly professional in management of our affairs.  Liz made us feel much more like friends rather than customers.  I would certainly recommend Liz to any of my friends entering the property market.

      Chris B - February 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Updated almost daily during negotiation stages
      Chose this agent when another company failed miserably.  Found Amanda and Joanne to be professional and knowledgeable.  They made sure I was updated almost daily during negotiation stages with two prospective buyers and sold within six weeks of marketing with them.  Kept me informed and clearly assisted in chasing the progress of the sale with solicitors.  Would choose them again without hesitation to market a property in Wakefield!

      Gina - February 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      Great service, thank you
      Great service, thank you Liz!! Recently sold my property with Richard Kendall and received very good customer service from start to finish. My initial valuation was realistic, the photos and publicly were to a high standard. Liz who managed the sale was excellent, keeping me informed of viewings, feedback and ensuring continuity of information to ensure the sale remained on track. If you're soon to be selling your property with Richard Kendall, I'd recommend requesting Liz to managed your sale!

      Elizabeth is a true merit to his company

      Elizabeth Cooke has acted in a very helpful but also professional manner throughout.  Nothing has been too much trouble and as soon as a question was asked it was answered with correct info. 

      If Richard Kendall reads this he should be safe in the knowledge that Elizabeth is a true merit to his company and deserves all the recognition possible.  I would not hesitate in the future to use Richard Kendall Estate Agent!

      Taylor - January 2017

    • Seller Testimonial

      A very efficient and professional service

      Excellent service from the outset when we first had the valuation and put the house on the market.  The thing that was most important to us as we live some distance away was being contacted regularly and kept up-to-date with progress. Highly commend you for this.

      she was always pushing things along
      I agreed to buy my house back in December 2016, the sale was dealt with at Richard Kendall, Wakefield by Liz Cooke.  The completion went on long after me anticipated exchange date but Liz was a great source of reassurance and information. She was always pleasant to speak, despite me often vocalizing my frustrations. I felt she was always pushing things along as far as she could. Hopefully I will not be moving anytime in the near future but as and when I do I would have no problem in using the services of Richard Kendall and of course the incomparable Liz Cooke.
