    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.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      fabulous, really helpful, positive 
      We have recently bought and sold with Richard Kendall and would recommend this estate agent. Great service! Liz in particular has been fabulous, really helpful, positive and kept us up to date every step of the way.

      WF - May 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      All in all a five star service.
      We put our house for sale with Richard Kendall early July in 2017 after having it for sale without success with a previous estate agent for over 12 months. Immediately the viewings started even though our property was not within their local area, and by early August we had an offer with 'sold subject to contract' status. The sale was more complicated than normal with our house consisting of two properties and the purchaser having two properties to sell. Throughout the protracted eight and a half month duration of the sale, both Lucy and Catherine kept us fully updated at all times. They actively chased our purchasers, their estate agents and solicitors to ensure that everything was progressing smoothly. Finally after a hitch at the bottom of the purchasers chain we completed our sale at the end of April. We would definitely recommend Richard Kendall Estate Agents for anybody looking to sell their property. They were proactive in recommending our property to potential purchasers which we did not find with our previous estate agents. They also provided us with great solicitors for both a house purchase as well as the sale of Wellfield House. All in all a five star service. Many thanks to Lucy, Catherine and the team at Richard Kendall, Wakefield.

      The Needhams - May 2018

      She made the process seamless.
      To say that we were provided with great customer service from Catherine in the Wakefield office would be an understatement.

      Kate - April 2018

      they are always very professional.
      Niki has been very helpful in the recent sale of our property. She was always willing to spend time discussing the sale and passing on her advice and helping mediate during the sale.

    • Seller Testimonial

      I cant thank them and all the team enough
      Both Amanda and Joanne were fantastic in every way. Always contactable if I had any queries and very helpful and efficient. They got me an offer at the asking price after just two viewings so I cant thank them and all the team enough for the great way they dealt with everything.

      Ahley - March 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would definitely use again.
      Joanne and Amanda were both great, and took a lot of pain of interfacing with our (awful) conveyancer. Would definitely use again.

      D Perry - March 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      superb professional customer service given freely
      Difficult time for my 91 yr old mum to admit she needed sheltered housing. Niki Lunn from beginning of house put on sale to completion, superb professional customer service given freely. When I was confused with solicitors jargon. Once again Niki excelled at all questions asked. Supplied superb empathy with regards mums age and brought this multi chain conveyancing to a close by liaison with many people on mums behalf. Thank you Niki

      Mrs H Teasdale - March 2018


    • Seller Testimonial

      RK sold our house straight away
      RK sold our house straight away. They had it on the market quick, lots of viewings and offers came immediately. Both Amanda and Joanne were there to answer any questions we had and they called us frequently, to keep us updated. We were very satisfied with the service.

      Waheeda - February 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

       received an offer within days
      I sold my property through Richard Kendall. Having been on the market with a different agent for 8 months and only a handful of viewings, I changed to Richard Kendall. I had viewing straight away and received an offer within days of moving to Richard Kendall. The sale process has been very smooth. Amanda and Joanne have been efficient in getting back to me and keeping me updated on progress. I have valued the service most in the team helping chase up the chain for my onward purchase, which was not a straight forward purchase. Amanda sought updates as required and fed back to me quickly.

      - February 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional and efficient caring and hard working
      Professional and efficient, caring and hard working. Earned every penny! From the start every member of staff has worked very hard and kept us in the loop and really kept us informed every step of the way. I feel like Lucy and Catherine have gone above and beyond, know exactly what they are talking about and helped so much with the whole process of the sale. They have responded to emails, remained calm when I havent and been very reassuring. I am so glad we chose Richard kendall and would highly recommend them!

      Lucy - February 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      no hesitation recommending Richard Kendall
      We'd have no hesitation recommending Richard Kendall to our friends. Liz was incredibly efficient during our sale and purchase (we felt up to date at all times) and extremely supportive. We put our house on the market in August, and we moved into our new home in November! Job done! Great service, lovely person to deal with. Thank you, Liz

      Lorrie - February 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      supportive throughout the whole sale
      I have been really impressed with Richard Kendall Estate Agent. They have been really supportive throughout the whole sale of my property and were extremely instrumental in finalising the sale and making sure the exchange of contracts was completed as soon as possible. Amanda Dyson and Joanne deserve a special mention as they kept me up to date with any progress and kept me informed throughout the whole process. I would truly recommend them and would not hesitate to use their services in the future. Thank you

      Rebecca - Febraury 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      kept me fully up to date at all times
      My experience with Richard Kendall Estate Agents has been a wholly positive one. My property was valued by Jason Kent at £20,000 more than a rival agent and this proved to be the correct approach. Within minutes of the particulars going live I had an appointment to view and over the next 8-9 days had 15 viewings and two offers for the full asking price, one of which I accepted. Throughout the process Catherine, Lucy and other members of staff kept me fully up to date at all times, chasing solicitors and helping out my buyer with the mountain of paperwork.

      Mr and Mrs Savage - January 2018


    • Seller Testimonial

      Putting you at ease throughout the whole process
      Selling your home is one of the most stressful things to carry out. Having to do this twice in one year has been unimaginable stress. Amanda and Joanne have been amazing. Putting you at ease throughout the whole process. Dealing with queries, returning calls promptly, providing updates and reassuring you when things do not go to plan. Hopefully this will be our last move for a long time but if I do decide to sell my home I would definitely use Richard Kendall. Thank you ladies, it has been a pleasure.

      Being a first time buyer the whole process to me at first was a little daunting. Niki was able to put me at ease from day one and made the whole process easy as well as tremendously exciting. At no point during the whole process did I feel unaware of what was happening and what I could do to help the process along. On a personal note Niki is a lovely lady and hopefully will be in control of any future purchases I will potentially make. Thanks Niki!

      the ultimate professional and went the extra mile
      Having recently purchased a property from Richard Kendall estate agent in Wakefield, I realised the value of a mainstreet agent as opposed to the online one I chose to sell with. I was struggling to communicate with my agent, when in stepped Niki who was the ultimate professional and went the extra mile every time I called.Problems, which my agent should have solved, were overcome thanks to Niki. She's a credit to her employer, she has a great work ethic and she is also a lovely person. Thank you Niki !
