    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional expertise to have been invaluable.
      Melanie has recently steered my wife and I through the selling process and we found her help and professional expertise to have been invaluable. Melanie was at all times, professional, friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and honest. Our experience was over a number of months so we felt we really got to know Melanie and would have no hesitation in commending her for her skills, especially her negotiating skills and we would thoroughly recommend Richard Kendall Estate Agents to anybody who may be considering buying or selling a house.

      Blackburn - October 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      They constantly kept us up to date
      Suzanne and Donna were the two agents dealing with the sale of house and spent so much time on liaising between ourselves, the buyers and the solicitors of both parties. They constantly kept us up to date on each stage and we never had to chase them for an update. At a point we all thought we would never get there but thanks to Suzanne and Donna we did! Thank you girls!

      J&M - September 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      no hesitation in recommending Kendalls
      We had used Kendalls in 2015 when selling our home and had no hesitation is using them again three years later when selling a second property. The sale was handled in an extremely professional manner from valuation to the final stage. The initial valuation by David Savage was realistic and there was no pressure throughout to reduce for a quick sale. We live in Lancashire and relied on regular contact from Melanie who kept us well informed of progress throughout. From offer to completion took a little longer than anticipated but this was due to factors outside of Kendalls control and we got there in the end. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kendalls to friends and family in the future.

      Jill & Andrew - September 2018

      helpful, realistic ,optimistic and always cheerful
      Mandy was always helpful, realistic ,optimistic and always cheerful. Not easily thwarted. She was ready with alternatives and I always felt that a successful outcome was inevitable . Thank you Mandy

      Michael - August 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      well organised friendly and efficient
      If you're looking for a well organised friendly and efficient service you need look no further. Our property was unusual in that it was notionally a bungalow but, being built on sidelong ground, it had many steps, which rendered it unsuitable for the Darby and Joan set. We were concerned that the limited appeal of a cross between a house and a bungalow would result in a protracted sale period. However, Mandy Bennett and her colleagues presented the property exceedingly well and we were soon receiving offers. Our experience during the sale was made pretty much hassle free thanks to Mandy and her colleagues who arranged and attended all viewings on our behalf. Communication throughout the process was very good with regular updates from Mandy, coupled with excellent advice and information on all aspects of the sale J she certainly knows her stuff. She was an absolute star in the final stages - nudging and cajoling the solicitors to keep them on their toes. I can give no better endorsement than to say that Richard Kendall's will be handling all our future property sales J they provide very good value and certainly earnt their fee.

      E Jubb - April 2018

      Melanie was extremely proactive in achieving the sale of this building land in a very challenging market. She has handled all enquiries competently and has kept us updated every step of the way , from initial offers to final offer and through to completion. We would always recommend her highly as true value for money and plan to use her services again.

      Dennis North - March 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      very courteous and helpful 
      Melanie was very courteous and helpful throughout our buying and selling process, liaising with all parties on our behalf and working hard to keep things progressing. She kept us informed at every step and got involved in areas which were above and beyond her role in order to ensure the whole experience was as smooth as possible for us.

      JDB - March 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would definitely recommend Richard Kendall
      I can't speak highly enough of Melanie. She coordinated the whole sale from start to finish, staying late and working weekends to move things along. She kept me informed regularly and liaised with all parties even when it wasn't her job. Would definitely recommend Richard Kendall, Melanie is an asset to them.

      K Fitzsimons - February 2018

    • Seller Testimonial

      seamlessly dealt with the whole process
      Melanie and her staff were fantastic in assisting in what turned out to be a lengthy and complicated sale. The team are all very personable and seamlessly dealt with the whole process, keeping me informed of any developments and liaising with any third parties as required. They helped keep the process very transparent in terms of when and what was happening and had an air of calm confidence in the manner that they operated. Thanks very much.

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional, knowledgable and highly efficient
      This is the 2nd time in 12 months we have used Richard Kendall to sell a property. The service we consistently receive is very professional, knowledgable and highly efficient. The latest transaction completed within 4 weeks of the sale being agreed and we would not hesitate to recommend the services of Richard Kendall to other sellers.

      James Bladon - February 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      Excellent, professional and friendly service
      Excellent, professional and friendly service from Melanie at Kendall's to help us sell our house. Although the completion was slower than initially anticipated, Melanie steered us through the setbacks efficiently - far more proactively and effectively than either our or the buyer's solicitor - and managed a positive outcome just before Christmas. (Solicitor organised through Kendall's.)

      Linda B - January 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      kept us well informed of the progress in our sale
      Melanie kept us well informed of the progress in our sale. When we had any queries she listened to what we had to say and gave us sound advice. Though the sale seemed to take a while to sort out we were always confident in the knowledge we were going to complete.

      George - January 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      rang us every week to keep us informed
      We had not moved house for 40 years so were very pleased to find that Melanie would be "holding our hands" throughout the entire process. There were only 2 of us in the chain but the sale of our house dragged on and on for 3 months (no fault of RKs). Melanie rang us every week to keep us informed of the (lack of) progress. Eventually, moving day arrived and this proved to be very stressful as we were still waiting for the keys to our new bungalow over 4 hours after we left our house. Melanie sorted it for us and saw to it that we were not homeless that night even though it was dark when we finally moved in. She also recommended a surveyor and solicitor both of which we used and found to be very good. Melanie knew that we were looking for a bungalow in the same area and rang us to notify us when a suitable one was coming onto the market so we also bought our new property through Richard Kendall's too.

      G & D - January 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      Communication was excellent
      The service we have received from Richard Kendall has been exceptional. The whole process from valuation to completion was dealt with professionalism. Communication was excellent and we were kept updated on a regular basis by Melanie who is an absolute credit to the company. We couldn't have asked for a better service. Thank you.

      Trish gave a 1st class service
      After buying a property through Richard Kendall I have to say Trish gave a 1st class service, always a smile and kept me informed throughout the process. Thank you Trish for being there for me....much appreciated.

      K.A - March 2018

    • Buyer Testimonial

      excellent throughout the process
      Mandy, the estate agent of the people we were buying from, was excellent throughout the process of buying our first house. Mandy kept us well informed and dealt with our concerns thoroughly (and I'm sure those of others in the chain). Of all the people we have dealt with during this process, Mandy has stood out above the rest. If we came to sell our house further down the line, I would definitely want Mandy supporting us.

      J&S - February 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      nothing was too much trouble for her
      Hi just wanted to show our appreciation to the dedication to detail Mandy has shown all the way through the purchase process,from start to finish, by keeping the vendor and the buyer and all solicitors in the loop to keep the process moving along all the way through; nothing was too much trouble for her, and she was undertaking roles which were outside of her remit to keep the sale going. Can't thank her enough for helping us.Regards 

      Simon - February 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      excellent at keeping us informed
      Both Melanie and Mandy were very helpful in assisting us to buy our bungalow after a stressful time for the Vendor and us the buyers . They were excellent at keeping us informed on progress on the sale ( It wasn't straight forward). Thank you to all the team especially Melanie

      Paula Whiteley - January 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      made a stressful experience easier for us
      We recently moved into our new property in Horbury. Unfortunately the move didn't go as smoothly as predicted due to the fact that the deeds had been lost to the house we were purchasing. This added at least 4 weeks on to the purchase which was quite frustrating. Melanie was very helpful throughout the purchase and was always available with up to date information on progress whenever we required it. She made a stressful experience easier for us to cope with ! Highly recommended.
