    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      I have used them countless times
      I have used Richard Kendall Pontefract countless times to look after my property re-sales. Lisa is usually my main contact and she is friendly and always does what is asked of her especially when it comes to progressing my sales through to completion ASAP which is a very tedious and time consuming task but she always proves successful.

      What a superb service from start to finish
      We have just sold our property through Richard Kendall and we can honestly say what a superb and professional service from start to finish. We nearly went with an online estate agent and we are so glad we didn't as we encountered a few issues which Kendall's sorted out immediately for us, if we had gone with an online estate agent then we would have had to sort all this ourselves. The team worked so hard to get us to completion but we would like to give a shout out to Lisa, what an absolute star she is and a fantastic asset to the company, there is nothing that is too much trouble for her, she dealt with the sale amazingly and kept us informed all the way through, I will miss our friendly (and most times funny!) chats that we had, thank you so much Lisa x We can definitely recommend Kendall's, the service is amazing and we are already singing their praises to friends and family and will continue to do for a long time.

      Professional, friendly, honest and great advice
      We have recently sold our property through Richard Kendall and I was very impressed with the service provided right from the get go. Jody was excellent when he came to value the property, was honest but also open to our suggestions on marketing and was super friendly and personable. We sold our property on the second viewing which was great and from there I dealt with Lisa on actually completing the sale. What can I say about Lisa? Life saver! She was professional, friendly, honest and gave great advice throughout. She did a great job at keeping me updated at all times and also explaining some part of the process to me when required. IF we ever move again (!)- I will definitely use Richard Kendall.

      We knew we could trust the Kendall's team
      From first visit for valuation, we were impressed and grateful. Roger was very professional, pragmatic and empathetic as we were selling property following a bereavement . Then throughout the process of photos, brochure , marketing and support with safe viewings of the property, we knew we could trust Kendall's team. In particular our Negotiator, Lisa Wood, was so helpful, skillful in managing communication with offers and keeping us totally informed of any difficulties or developments with prospective buyers. Her experience and communication skills were invaluable. Many thanks also to Sophie and Kelly who sent us feedback on the viewings along the way. We were kept in the loop also at the quiet time of awaiting exchange of contracts and completion. Thank you Lisa and all at Richard Kendall's Pontefract.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Happy with all aspects of the service
      A short note just to express how delighted we were with the level of service provided to us by the team at the Pontefract branch during our recent house purchase. Lisa, Tina, Sophie and Jody in particular offered tremendous support during a difficult purchase which was delayed due to Japanese knotweed and then the Covid 19 lockdown period. The expertise of the staff was demonstrated when the valuation for a mortgage highlighted the presence of knotweed. Lisa tracked down the most reputable company in the area to solve the problem and helped to salvage the deal. We were happy with all aspects of the service during our purchase and when a family member wanted to put a house up for sale we had no hesitation in recommending Richard Kendall's at Pontefract.
