    My experience with the Morley team of Manning Stainton was an excellent one, from the initial valuation, through to completion.

    I had a lot of viewings, thanks to the web presence and good images of the house and the team did their best to encourage visitors to the office to book a viewing.

    After the offer, I dealt primarily with Emma and she was extremely efficient, easy to deal with and very proactive.

    I would certainly recommend using Manning Stainton to my friends and family.

    I used Manning Stainton for finding and buying my first property and from start to finish they were excellent.

    The staff were polite and helpful and contacted me regularly throughout my viewings and eventual buy.

    John Putsman was courteous throughout and explained all the steps of the buy whenever I was unsure. He chased the solicitors from his side and contributed well to the movement of the sell.

    I would most definitely recommend this branch when certainly looking to buy in and around the leeds area.

    From our first meeting with Tori and the photos taken we were given the best experience we have ever encountered in selling a property. Nothing was too much for any of the dedicated staff at Manning Stainton. We were kept informed at all times and even when on a short break to Amsterdam Tori kept in touch and upon our return we were informed that we had a potential sale. Not only did we have one potential but two within 2 weeks of the house being put on the market. Nothing was too much for them not only from our side but also the buyers side as the purchaser of our house was also impressed by the way they were treated. These must be the Rolls Royce of estate agents we were recommended to them from a previous seller and I am so pleased we took their advice. In all It took about 12 weeks from the photos being taken to completion. They also suggested a law firm for the conveyancing and they were fantastic also. Once again these are truly first class Estate Agents.

    The customer service from beginning to end has been exceptional. Queries were answered quickly and efficiently, support was always there for me and I can honestly say, there will not be a more professional Estate Agent to deal with out there. Louise was outstanding in keeping me informed, updating me & made the process seem so easy...which I'm sure it wasn't from her point of view. I cannot rate her & Mannning Stainton as a whole enough...they surpass any ratings!

    The hardest part of buying a house now is negotiating the mortgage market. He has in depth knowledge of both new build mortgages and the Help to Buy scheme. I have referred many prospective purchasers to Paul and they have been delighted with the service they have received. It has made my job of selling new build houses much easier. Many thanks Paul.

    In what was a really difficult transaction, Manning Stainton were a breeze to deal with. From valuation to arranging viewings to negotiating a sale, I was impressed every step of the way with their performance. All other parties involved were at best difficult, and at worst atrocious, so their can do attitude through everything kept me loyal.

    Doing business with friendly and reliable people makes all the difference, and it's what sets these guys apart from the rest.

    Would I recommend them to anyone? I'm afraid it's not a yes, it's a "hell yeah I would".

    Thanks guys

    Manning Stainton sold my late mothers house. As you will appreciate this was a very stressful time in our lives but the team at Guiseley headed by Claire made it run smoothly. We initially chose manning Stainton because of the professional way in which Claire valued the house - we felt she was very approachable and handled all our queries well. We were kept informed throughout the whole process from marketing to the final sale. All the office staff returned any call we made and nothing was too much trouble. We should like to Thank You all for making a difficult time much easier. Best Wishes Lynda & David Smith.

Also i found Kevin efficient, proactive and providing excellent customer service replying to my enquiries, telephone calls straight away or at least on same days. I would recommend Kevin to my friends and family members as well. Thanks

    Kevin has helped advise on our mortgage options, from around January/February 2013 until we finally bought a property in Aug 2014. During this time, our criteria and the value of the mortgage we chose changed significantly and Kevin always took the time to explain and give advice on what the best options would be, as well as practical and affordability advice based on his knowledge of our circumstances etc. Kevin never rushed us and accommodated us at short notice in the various visits we made to his office, sometimes even on an evening. We eventually needed an urgent "mortgage in principle" for a sealed bid offer and Kevin's prompt response in sorting this out for us...the same day as requested... helped us put our (successful) offer in on time. We finally moved home recently and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin in providing advice on choosing a mortgage.

    We had used Manning Stainton before when we bought our house as first time buyers. They made the process so quick and easy then, that we decided to use them again to sell.
    We chose to use their solicitors and also let them do all the viewings for us to ease the stresses of selling for us. Our main point of contact was Rebecca and the customer service we received from her has been above and beyond. We had more than one buyer that let us down or dragged their feet, not to mention the rudeness and every step of the way Rebecca sorted things out, kept on top of everything, liaised with... (read more)

    From start to finish the sales process was handled with ease, informing me when prospective clients were visiting and feedback afterwards. Once a buyer was found, we were contacted with progress updates and importantly when things got more complicated they were dealt with as though they never existed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Manning Stainton to sell a property and Louise Lawrence to be your agent.

    We signed with Mannings following a disappointing experience with another local agent. We mostly dealt with Carol and feel that she kept on top of things - arranging viewing, viewing feedback and generally keeping me up to date with how things were progressing. Overall we were happy with the service.

    The service I received from Debbie was excellent, she kept in contact with me every step of the way even chasing my mortgage adviser and solicitor to the point where I would prefer to pay her for the work rather than my mortgage adviser.
    If I move again I will be using this company, but more imortantly this branch and will definitely recommend to a friend.
    Hope this helps

    I was very pleased with his professional approach and would not hesitate to ask him for advice or to set up loans in the future.

    Due to credit history Steve advised it was proving difficult to obtain a mortgage offer for the amount i wanted to borrow, further to additional funding from parents Steve has managed to obtain a mortgage offer and for my parents to re-mortgage their property to provide the additional funding. The reason why i have given Steve an excellent was because he had gone over and beyond what i believe he is probably 'contracted' to do, but he made sure that within 24 hours he had got a mortgage in principle for me and one for my parents to prove to Alan Cooke (with whom we are purchasing the property) that we could afford to purchase the property and ultimately for them to take it off the market. This house will be a 'dream home' for me and my family (wife and 2 children aged 1 & 3) considering we have been cooped up in an apartment for the last 4 years. I can not thank Steve enough for his help and will forever be grateful. He has been extremely approachable, answered all queries i have had and made the whole process as stressfree as possible.

    We have just purchased our first house and we went to Kevin to get our mortgage. He was very good at explaining the process and was very flexible in meeting us outside of our working hours.

    His system for identifying the best mortgage for us was very clear and he explained it well.

    We are now successfully in our property and happy with the service we received. We would recommend him to others.

    Helen convinced us to put our property back on the market with Mannings. As a result our house sold within days . Unfortunately the sale fell through after a few weeks. But did again sell fairly quickly after several more viewings.
    Debbie Tabiner took over responsibility of seeing the sale through. We found a house we liked and wanted to buy. And so the process began ! What a journey it has been ! 4 months later and we have finally exchanged contracts. Debbie has been absolutely brilliant. She has kept us fully informed of every stage of the process and every development . She has been very professional , patient and understanding. We cannot thank her enough. Her reassuring voice and honesty has been very welcome. We appreciated her knowledge and assistant throughout every stage.
    In conclusion we would very much recommend Mannings and all their staff for making our move happen at long last.

    Many thanks

    Me and my partner had been looking to buy a house since we spoke to hayley for the first time in march 2013. She really helped us at this point by giving us information about the help to buy scheme as we asked. From this date I also started receiving newsletters which helped a lot. Me and partner decided as there was nothing we wanted in that price range so we saved for a 10% deposit. When going back to Hayley things started getting serious, we also had meetings with other mortgage advisors but manning's cost for value always won. Hayley was a great help and I could contact her at any time. I understood the process, she also arranged our insurance at a great price. There was nothing more for us to do but move in and enjoy our new home. Thankyou Hayley :)

    Vicky provided excellent service from the moment she first took on the property. She was always cheerful, which helped me during the more stressful moments, and was very good at keeping me informed regarding the progress of the sale. She always seemed willing to 'go the extra mile' when it came to finding out what was holding things up, and always came up with a solution to overcome difficulties. I highly recommend Vicky as a sales negotiator.

    After been let down by another lender I went to Louise for advice. From the beginning she was confident that she would be able to help me. Louise always stayed positive and came up with ideas that helped me in my particular situation. She was always available if I needed to see her or speak with her. Overall, Louise was very professional and courteous and I was confident that the advice she gave me was in my best interests. I am very appreciative of her help.

    This is the second time we have used Kevin for mortgage advice and we would use him again. He is flexible in terms of being available evenings and weekends and responds to calls and emails very promptly. He is knowledgeable about the best deals and mortgage provider response time which was important to us. Kevin has also advised us on suitable insurances and we trust his recommendations. I would recommend him to others.

    A great company with a great feel about it. I was provided with nothing short of good customer care, efficiency, and cracking communication. Would definitely recommend.

    We were first time buyers and not the easiest of prospects as my husband is self employed. Kevin was so helpful and cheerful through out despite us hitting a few brick walls along the way. He was always available either via email or phone, a couple of times I emailed out of hours with no expectation of a reply till the next day, but he always replied which I felt was above and beyond. We had a couple of really awful moments when my husband and I were despairing because it looked like it was not going to happen as the bank were being particularly stubborn about a seemingly silly aspect of our business accounts. Kevin's attitude was to tell us not to worry, it was his job to do the worrying! He really was proactive and every obstacle we came across he was busy thinking of a way to deal with it. Needless to say he got us our mortgage. We have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so!

    As first time buyers we were clueless and nervous about the process. Kevin helped us through every stage and was always on hand for advice. Not only was Kevin always friendly and professional he never got annoyed at my constant questions- even when I called him on his mobile at the weekend! Kevin found us a great mortgage deal and we felt that we got great advice. I would definitely recommend using Kevin for mortgage advice and we would definitely use his services again.

    Despite the difficulties invoked by the seller and my purchaser Louise remained positive through out a long drawn out process. We all got there in the end and Louise was an integral part of the team. I would have no hesitation in using MS and Louise again

    We would like to thank Louise for the wonderful service we received when selling our property. We would commend her for the speed of her responses to questions and queries and were pleased that she never dodged our calls even if the news wasn't great. Honesty and directness save a lot of time and energy. When she needed to be away from the office there was always a member of staff that had been briefed to deal with us.

    We cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from her and her team and would recommend Mannings (Shadwell Lane) to anyone involved in buying or selling property.

    Paul was very personable and on the first visit dedicated a lot of time to patiently guide us through the process as we were first time buyers. He also took the time to visit us at our home at our convenience. One of the things we liked about Paul was his extensive knowledge which made us feel that we were in very capable hands. We also appreciated the fact that Paul wasn't pushy, was very objective in his advice and overall his service was tailored to our needs. As a consequence to our positive experience, we have recommended Paul to some of our friends.

    Paul has been fantastic throughout our ongoing mortgage application and house purchase. Ours is not the most straightforward of cases and there have been many hurdles so far which Paul has negotiated with endless patience and good humour. He always takes the time to ensure that everything is in order, and that we are going down the right path for us. There's a little way to go yet but I have no doubt he will get us there!

    Quite early on with our dealings with Vickie it was more like dealing with a friend. She offered good advice and kept us up to date with what was happening, even when there was little to report. It is a long time since we last moved house and reassurances from Vickie about the process certainly put us at ease and instilled confidence. Whilst we accept that other members of staff would not be up to speed with our sale, when Vickie was not in the office the service was slightly lacking. Vickie went the extra mile in liaising with her colleagues at Manning Stainton Guiseley regarding our purchase.
