    Richard Kendall - Founder FNAEA
    Richard is now approaching his 50th 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.

      They open on Sundays!
      Excellent service both through the viewing process and once the offer had been accepted. Kept us and our buyers updated at all times even through the lockdown during the Covid 19 Pandemic. We were especially impressed as unlike other agents Richard Kendals continued to provide a near normal service. Another good point with Kendals is that they open Sundays so you can arrange a viewing anyway of the week!

    • Seller Testimonial

      Went over and above
      I was very impressed by the professional manner in which Amanda and Joanne dealt with the sale of my property. There were some difficulties with exchange of contract due to the beginning of Covid Lockdown. But Joanne and Amanda went over and above to keep in contact with my buyer's solicitors, my solicitors and myself and finalised the sale on the Friday before total lockdown. I can't thank these ladies enough for everything they did for me at that very stressful time. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone either buying or selling their property.

      They were estate agents, councillors and support
      I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Joanne & Amanda for helping me with my sale & purchase. It was my first move in 20 years & something I had to do on my own with very little knowledge & to say it was a stressful time is quite the understatement...and just when things settled down lock down came! Throughout it all they were always there for me, they were my estate agents, my councillors & my support... I truly don't think I could have done it without them.. THANK YOU

      T Scully - May 2020

      We had an excellent service from Richard Kendall. Liz especially. She kept us up to date with everything that was going on with weekly updates.

      Kept us up to date every step of the way
      The service we received from Liz was outstanding, she kept us up to date every step of the way, even when our own estate agents did not know what was happening. We felt we could contact Liz for any query and she was always polite and helpful to us both via the telephone and email. She always returned our calls and often chased everyone in the chain. Near the exchanging of contract there was an issue at the bottom of the chain which delayed our moving date, Liz was particularly helpful in chasing solicitors and resolved this issue.
