    • We will not touch anything in the property unless absolutely necessary

    Visiting Our Offices

    • If you do need to come into one of our offices, you will need to call ahead and book an appointment
    • Our staff will be working from home when they can, so less staff will be physically in our offices at any one time

    The Weekend Viewing Event
    image cannot be displayed
    Brand new properties are highly sought after, so we have pioneered 'The Weekend Viewing Event' marketing strategy to ensure your property receives maximum exposure the day it goes on the market.

    We allocate a weekend allowing the property to be prepared for viewings in advance, and organise appointment times introducing an element of competition between buyers on the day. Unlike 'Open House' when buyers turn up at the same time, our events are strictly view by appointment which is far more likely to generate offers from buyers who have had a professional viewing of your home.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      right choice of estate agent and worth every penny
      Phillip James Kennedy did what what set out in the original quotation and more. There was an extensively detailed and tailored marketing strategy/ tactics outlined eloquently and professionally by Daniel. The staff were attentive, personable and extremely professional in all my dealings with them. I have singled out Olivia and Lisa who made, what I perceive as an inexperienced vendor - the difficult parts, very easy. Olivia and Lisa handled the negotiations between us and the potential purchasers with tact, diplomacy and good advice. They made it happen and took a huge amount of stress out of what is generally held as one of life's most stressful events. This part was a pleasant surprise to me during the process but what I think you should stress more in your up front marketing. It eased the process from start to finish. I have used the word professional several times in this review and this sums up my experience. The process as quick and simple as facilitated by Phillip James Kennedy and it was right choice of estate agent and worth every penny!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would definitely recommend
      Had really good experience with Philip James Kennedy. They got a higher price for the property than other agents quoted. There fees were lower than some of the agents and service fantastic. They chased both ours and the buyers solicitors and always returned phone calls if we needed advice. They marketed the property well and even included a premium listing on Rightmove that helped us decide which agent to use. Would definitely recommend
    • Seller Testimonial

      kept in touch
      Changed to Philip James after using another local estate agents and been very disappointed with their service. Very prompt service for valuation and moving forward after that. kept in touch. Lisa was brilliant when the property was sold. She was pleasant, kept us informed on progress and made it as stress free as selling a property can be.
    • Seller Testimonial

      extremely professional and helpful
      All the staff at Philip James, Heaton Moor, that I dealt with were extremely professional and helpful. Their passion and enthusiasm for what they do shone through. In particular, I'd like to pick out Mel for her cheerful demeanour and integrity whilst viewing various properties, it was an absolute pleasure to deal with her. Rick was very helpful during the negotiation process and Lisa worked tirelessly (and politely) to progress the Sale to completion with the vendor, both solicitors and the mortgage people. I would have no hesitation in recommending Philip James' services.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Really really impressed and grateful.
      We were in a long and tricky chain and the consistent pressure applied and attention to detail by Lisa made sure that the whole process proceeded to completion to a timescale that would have slipped drastically and she not been involved. Lisa was responsive, efficient, professional, knowledgable and courteous and I couldn't recommend her or PJK highly enough. (I never believed I would vouch for or praise any estate agent!). Really really impressed and grateful.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Helpful with a friendly service
      One of the best estate agents in the Heatons always helpful with a friendly service excellent low commission rate and stunning pictures taken of property.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Regular communication
      Very please with the service from this agent. Lisa our sales negotiator was excellent as our chain fell apart twice. With regular communication with Lisa & my buyer the sale went through. I cannot praise Lisa enough as throughout the sale she was the only estate agent in the chain of 4 who was proactive in terms of chasing solicitors and providing updates. Many thanks.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I would 100% use Lisa & Phillip James
      Lisa was working at the top end of our chain, if it wasn't for Lisa things wouldn't have happened as quickly and smoothly as they did. She was very proactive, helpful & professional and helped to progress things where you would normally be trying to speak to solicitors direct. I would highly recommend Lisa & can't thank her enough for the help she has provided. I would 100% use Lisa & Phillip James if we ever move in the future.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Nothing was too much trouble
      Excellent service. Nothing was too much trouble and Lisa kept us up-to-date at every stage and was the perfect interface between ours and the buyers solicitors.
