    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

    Excellent from start to finish
    Couldn't have wished for a better estate agent or representative you worked above and beyond the call of duty on many occasions and although it didn't seem it at times you made everything so much better. Mandy was excellent from start to finish and really made things so much easier, all estate agents should be like Mandy. S Austerfield - September 2014.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Would not use any other agent in this area
    During a difficult period of selling both staff kept me up to date on a regular basis always had time to meet and discus and when we did get the sale though through a chain of sales both mandy and melanie did more that any other agents to ensure the sale went through, keeping a client up to date even when there is little to report but melanie ensured her optimistic approach at all times and pursued every enquiry with professionalism. would not use any other agent other than them in this area. highly recommended. F Willietts - September 2014.

    It was clear that the customer comes first
    Good evening, On behalf of my wife and I, I wish to say a big THANK YOU to Liz, Shireen, Laura and any other team members we spoke to whilst house hunting, all of whom are a credit both to themselves, and to your organisationTheir efficiency and politeness was a welcome breath of fresh air, something lacking in other agents we dealt with, (notably, countrywide organisations) and it was clear that the customer comes first.We are only sorry that the house we have found was not marketed through yourselves, as the commission would have been well earned!We will of course recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy/sell in your area, and wish you all the best for the future. Kind regards J & D Smith - September 2014.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Staff were understanding and professional
    Early this year my wife & I separated & needed to sell our home to start new lives Richard Kendalls staff were understanding & professional our house went on the market on a Monday & we accepted an offer 5 days later for nearly our asking price! I have now also rented a home via the same estate agent & I am very happy with the service they have provided! J Hinchcliffe - August 2014.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Always kept me up to date with the sale progress
    Cannot thank the staff enough for all their help and support throughout the sale of our house and purchase of our new home.They were informative and helpful and always kept me up to date with progress on both sale and purchase.I wouldn't hesitate to use them again if we ever need to and would highly recommend them to others. T Missions - August 2014.

    Professional, positive, efficient
    It was like a breath of fresh air when Lucy introduced herself as a new member of the Kendals Estate Agents. She is very professional , positive , efficient and easy to speak to. I would defiantly consider Richard Kendals as my estate agent again with Lucy as part of the team. Yours sincerely J K Whitworth - July 2014.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Offered good advice and been fully trustworthy
    I can say that Without the assistance of Melanie, this property would not have been sold. She has dealt with the whole process with the upmost professionalism. She has kept me fully informed throughout and has done the brokering between my solicitor and that of my buyers solicitor who was very very poor. She has offered good advice and has been fully trustworthy. Richard Kendall can be very proud to have such an employee. D Attard - July 2014.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Always proactive in acheiving a sale
    I have used Richard Kendall's office in Normanton on several occasions now for both buying and selling property. Sarah and Donna in the office are absolutely fantastic, they push hard for the right price, are always helpful and friendly and most importantly are always proactive in achieving a sale. It gives me great confidence knowing that either of them are selling a property for me. I would like to see the Kendall's values becoming more realistic with their pricing, as the last 2 properties I have sold were originally overvalued by around 20%, but take nothing away from the office staff, they are superb. J Coulman - July 2014.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Helpful and supportive with a calming influence
    Throughout all the ups and downs over the last 12 months Karen has been most helpful and supportive with a calming influence on myself and my wife. The last 24 hours of the sale were very stressful but Karen helped us over this period.Thanks to the whole team of Richard Kendalls for the work that was done in the background that we wouldn't have known about.  Parkinson - July 2014.

Testimonials from Buyers

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Superb service and would recommend
    I would just like to say on half behalf of myself and my partner, what a great experience we had in dealing with Richard Kendall, in particularly working with Donna and Sarah. As we were first time buyers, the whole process is new to us. Both Donna and Sarah were helpful and kind from day one. They were explicit and clear in everything they explained to us, nothing was too much to ask and the communication they maintained in keeping us updated on the progress with the purchase was fantastic. We had a difficult and complex sale, therefore it was frustrating at parts throughout. However, Donna and Sarah were reassuring and supportive throughout, acting as our advocate at some points and going above their paid role to help us- which we are extremely grateful for. This has been a superb service and would recommend to anyone wishing to buy or sell a house.Thanks again for all your help, advise and support it has been lovely to have had such kind and knowledgable professionals to help us on our first time buying!!! L Whitehead - September 2014.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Absolutely first class customer service
    Superb top quality service provided by Karen at the Normanton branch of Richard Kendall. She guided me through the purchase of my property, she was in constant contact informing me of all developments during the purchase. She went above and beyond and helped me resolve issues caused by the poor service given by my solicitors. Without the excellent service provided by Karen I have no doubt my house would not have completed . Karen is very efficient but more importantly she is friendly, honest, reliable and goes that extra mile.ABSOLUTELY FIRST CLASS CUSTOMER SERVICE. Mavis - August 2014.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Personal service which has been second to none
    Me and my partner have just sold a property and then also bought another with the great help from Sarah & Donna. Both have been so professional and gave the personal service which has been second to none. I feel that they have gone above and far beyond their role to give such an excellent customer experience with such passion. They have advised us, helped us, called our vendors etc..... and always there to help at the end of the line. Its been a long process but a pleasure to have Donna & Sarah dealing with our house sale and purchase. They deserve a big pay rise or at least recognition for their hard work and customer service. Mark & Wendy - August 2014.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Huge support guiding me through our first purchase
    The best service I have ever received. I am not normally one to give feedback unless it's outstanding and this was the case. We have been looking for a house for a couple of years now and finally found the one. I just want to say a huge thank you to Alison Hopkinson. she has been a huge support to helping and guiding me through my first time buying experience. As it is a stressful yet exciting time, Alison has definitely stood out from my many years of customer service and it makes such a difference. Not just Richard Kendall but every shop, company need staff like Alison. I would definitely recommend Richard Kendalls as I have been kept up to date regular which takes the stress off. It is very trusting Knowing you have staff with knowledge and a passion for there job. Thank you. Rachel - August 2014.
