      couldn't have been more helpful or supportive
      Lisa couldn't have been more helpful or supportive whilst I was selling my parents home.

Jody was also very helpful and supportive when he valued the property and during the selling process. Thanks to all.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Nothing but 5* service
      Nothing but 5* service received from Lisa throughout the sale. She was always extremely professional, efficient, helpful and very approachable, nothing was ever too much trouble for her. The apartment did take a while to sell and once sold there were added problems and delays due to late responses from 3rd parties. Overall a very positive experience provided by Kendall's and in particular by Lisa .

      Liz - October 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      far beyond what I would have expected
      The Service that we received from Richard Kendall's was excellent. Sarah Whalley at Normanton and Lisa Wood at Pontefract helped us with our sale and purchase and went far beyond what I would have expected from an estate agent. There were various complications, particularly with our purchase, and I genuinely believe that the transaction wouldn't have completed if it hadn't been for Lisa and Sarah going the extra mile to help us.

      Sarah - October 2017

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Always got a smile on their face in the office
      Pleasurable buying experience from start to finish.. it takes a lot for an estate agent to be honest nowadays but Jayne is straight to the point, ensuring that any hiccups or objections that pop up along the way she is sure to notify me and rectify the problem/issue. Always got a smile on their face in the office. Lisa was always happy to help where she could which as a buyer was always satisfying leaving the office with a update of the progress.

      Jayne has given exceptional service throughout the whole process of our purchase.

We wish to thank Jayne for all her hard work and determination to assist us complete on our new home. If we do ever decide to sell our property, we will not hesitate but to instruct Richard Kendall to act on our behalf.

      Katherine & Jonsathan Hall - March 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Lisa went above and beyond
      We couldn't thank Lisa enough for all her hard work and efforts throughout the stages of exchanging contracts for our new house. Without the hard work of Lisa myself and partner genuinely believe we wouldn't be getting the keys for our new home. We would highly recommend Richard Kendall to anyone wishing to buy or even rent a property. Lisa went above and beyond , staying out of office hours to make the deal happen on our deadline given. We had trouble with our solicitors and she helped with that situation the best she could. We can't thank Lisa enough for all she's done!!! Brilliant service!

      Courtney & James - February 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      we found all the staff there really friendly
      We cannot thank Lisa enough for all the help & support she gave us when we were buying our property, in fact she went above & beyond the call of duty at times. In fact we found all the staff there really friendly even at one time finding us a dentist that was needed at the time. I would recommend this agency to anyone. 

      Hugh & Sylvia Adams - January 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      absolutely fantastic throughout
      Lisa has been absolutely fantastic throughout our 3 month ordeal! I would say that Lisa single handed (with help from her sister in Castleford at times!) ensured that our purchase and the purchase up the chain happened. She chased solicitors, sellers and even offered to make calls for removal companies to ensure a smooth transaction. She is not just a sales person for an estate agent, she is a friend, shoulder to cry on and your best friend as she ensures you buy your dream home or sell it. Do not go anywhere else, she provides a superior service and is top in her profession. Thank you so much Lisa for all your hard work and efforts that you put in. Cant wait to see you this week! Warmest Regards
