    Much of our hard work is undertaken after an offer is accepted. Sorting out problems that arise and making sure that the right things are happening at the right time. This is made easier by our carefully selected and hand picked conveyances who share our passion for customer service and ensure that both the client and all parties involved within the sales chain are kept up to date at all times. Unlike many agents who recommend out of town conveyancors, we only use local solicitors, as not only do we love supporting local businesses, we also think it is important to make it as easy and hassle free as possible for our clients to be able to pop in to drop off any paperwork, ID or any other important information.

    What our customers think

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Efficient and professional service
      We had a good experience with Staves Gleadless from the beginning. They offered a free valuation and got our property on the market very quickly. They even popped back to make sure we had photos of our garden on a sunnier day. The property had six viewings lined up back-to-back for the next day within a few hours of listing which was great. Once we'd accepted an offer, we dealt with Ben for the remainder of the process to completion. He was really helpful, always available to answer queries and when it got a bit mad towards completion, he was the one who rang up and down the chain making sure everyone was on the same page. He was basically the go-to guy if you wanted something getting done. Would highly recommend Staves Gleadless for their quick, efficient and professional service.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Responded promptly at all times
      After a big hold up due to Covid-19, I eventually completed the sale of my Mum's house last Friday. However, during the 7 months since the acceptance of an offer on the property, Matt, Rob and Ben have kept me in the loop with updates on progress or to just touch base if there has been nothing to report. They have answered my silly questions, responding promptly at all times in a friendly and professional manner. This company came recommended by family and I am so pleased I agreed to use their services - I cannot recommend them highly enough. I am not intending to move in the near future, but I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Thanks Guys.

      Ben was absolutely amazing!
      Ben was absolutely amazing!! The progression from start to finish was drawn out by solicitors but Ben was extremely attentive, kept us up to date and tried his best to keep the transaction moving. When completion day came to say we were both relieved was a understatement. Thank you so much Ben we sincerely appreciate everything you did. Keep up the good work!

      The service was spot on
      Great service from all of at Staves, Will managed my rental over the years and the service was spot on. When it came to sell Rob and the team got me an offer over the asking price and the sale went through without a hitch! Would happily recommend Staves!

    • Seller Testimonial

      Didn't rush me into a decision
      Matthew came to see me at my mothers property and was very caring and understanding of the situation I was in. He didn't rush me into making a decision and that's one of the reasons we went ahead with Staves. Once we were on the market Rob, Ben and Matthew did their utmost to achieve to best price for myself and my mother. Hopefully I wont need to sell another property but if I do I would definitely use Staves. Thank you again.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Agreed a sale within 2 weeks for more!
      I sold my house through Staves earlier on this year and was really impressed. Not only did they agree a sale within 2 weeks for more than I was expecting, but the aftercare that I received once the house was sold was second to none. I was kept fully up to date and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend!
      Laura Bellamy March 2019
    • Seller Testimonial

      So professional and courteous throughout
      Thanks for selling my house so effectively and being so professional and courteous throughout. Your hard work and dedication has been very much appreciated .
      Ms Proctor February 2019
    • Seller Testimonial

      I was amazed and impressed!
      This is just a short note to thank you and all your team for their efforts in selling my brother's house on Lees Hall Road. It seemed to take such a long to complete the sale but I haven't forgotten how quick you were in finding the buyer. If you can remember so far back, you came to meet me at the house on the 2nd August 2018, I chose you as my agent a week later on the 9th of August, the for sale board went up on the 13th, the property was on your website two days later on the 15th, you had arranged 14 viewings for the following Saturday, 18th August, which produced 6 offers and the sale was agreed on the 24th August from the 11 offers which had been received by then. Just 16 days from being appointed to actually selling! I was amazed and impressed! Other people may have been involved behind the scenes but apart from yourself, I've only met Robert and Ben - two very nice lads. You've all been very friendly, you've always had time for me and you've seemed genuinely interested in my sale. I have to say I couldn't have asked for better treatment from any of you than what I received and a nice touch, at the end, was on Monday 14th January when I called in to bring you up to date on the sale and Robert asked me how my grandson was going on with his house purchase. I'm using the proceeds of my brothers sale to give my grandson and his partner and interest-free loan to buy their first house.I must of mentioned this to Robert but it was a long time ago so the fact that he'd remembered it and was interested enough to ask how things were progressing said it all. Best wishes for 2019
      John Thorpe January 2019
    • Seller Testimonial

      Cant thank Staves enough
      I can't thank Staves enough for making our dreams come true. The service and how quick my house was sold was amazing. I big thank you to all the team . All the best for the New year. 
      Daniel and Leanne January 2019
    • Seller Testimonial

      Went above and beyond
      My Mum has just sold her property through Staves and has asked me to write a review on her behalf. From the initial valuation, viewings and subsequent offer and sale process, everyone she has dealt with has been friendly, courteous and professional. 

      When we have been talking about the sale she has had nothing but praise for Staves', she has said she probably annoyed them to death with all her questions and popping in whilst walking past; if she did they never showed it. As anyone knows who has bought or sold a house, it can be stressful and towards the end of the process in the exchange and completion stages, the buyers solicitors were not quite on the ball; making an error that delayed the exchange and potentially had cost implications. 

      They went above and beyond in chasing all parties concerned and got everything back on track and kept my Mum informed at all stages. From all I have seen and heard about Staves I would highly recommend them to anyone.
      Mrs Cowley December 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would gladly use again!
      Very professional when dealing with the sale of our house, especially as we aren't local to the area. Kept us informed along the whole process and would gladly use again.

      I can truly say i would use the company again
      I found this particular agency provided a high quality service and level of professionalism. No question was left unanswered and no task left incomplete. The utmost respect was shown by the staff to myself throughout the whole process of my house sale and I can truly say that I would use the company again. Moving home is time consuming and stressful and it is important that it is handled with empathy and ease, Staves did just that. Many thanks to Rob and the team at the office, you were all great.

      Very helpful and excellent communication
      Very helpful and excellent communication - especially as my house purchase was rather drawn out with the legal side of things (including dealing with probate stuff and a trust fund), and there were some delays with the buyer of my old house in Shropshire. But we got there in the end - and I finally got to move into my lovely new house in Sheffield last month!
