Karen was very helpful and worked hard to ensure the purchase of our new property went through as smoothly as possible. She was always accessible by phone and email, and dealt with our enquiries in a timely manner. I would consider using Manning Stainton in the future....

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Manning Stainton to anyone. We purchased a home where Manning Stainton were the agents and dealt primarily with Karen Guows. Karen was super, fantastic at keeping us in the loop and very professional. Thanks for making a potentially stressful process relatively smooth....

I anticipated that selling a house in Horsforth while living in Scotland would have its difficulties. However, from the valuation by Helen King, which was spot on, to the day of completion, all was handled superbly and professionally. I was kept fully informed by Helen and Karen at every stage of the process. Every detail taken care of with no angst and no anxiety. Thank you for a smooth and worry free sale....

The fees were what I expected. The service provided was of such a high standard that it was well earned and good value.

From the brochure advertising my property, to the last stressful few hours of completion...I have been impressed with Manning Stainton's professional, friendly and efficient service! Every member of staff I spoke with along the way had the same professional manner and Karen, who looked after my property, was my saviour in the final hours and pushed my sale through to completion. Highly efficient yet extremely friendly...a winning combination in my eyes!...

Comment on agent fees
Having worked as a property lawyer I have always thought agent's fees are too high. I think a sliding scale of fees dependant upon how quickly you sell your house would be a good idea.

Karen really helped us negotiate our purchase and sale and provided a much needed link between the various people and solicitors involved in the chain. There were a number of hiccups along the way which she helped us navigate and I am sure Karen's hard work is what enabled the sale and purchase to go ahead. Well done Manning Stainton...

We were really pleased with the service of Manning Stainton. Sarah Joseph did our valuation and marketing material and did an excellent job. We had a lot of phone contact throughout the process and usually dealt with Helen, Louise or Karen. They are very good at what they do and very approachable and willing to give constructive advice and support when required. Alex, the accompanied viewer was terrific and a lovely lady. Special thanks has to go to Karen who really went above and beyond the cal...

Excellent brochure produced incorporating our suggestions. Arranged open day which was well attended. Kept us up to date in all developments and all offers. Helped with communication with both sets of solicitors and kept the sale moving forward. Karen always returned phone calls when not personally available. This is the second time involved with manning Stainton and would definitely use them again....

House sold for ‚£41 000 over the guide price.....but it was unique and difficult to value. We thought nearer to ‚£350 000 than ‚£300 000 which proved to be correct.

We have been extremely pleased with all the staff at Manning Stainton from the valuation to the exchange of contracts. We have found them to be very professional and always willing to go the extra mile, and Karen in particular has been extremely helpful in the latter stages of the process and helped with keeping things moving between relevant solicitors. Louise and Helen were also very helpful and helped us move forward when an offer on our house was withdrawn. We would highly recommend them. ...

As a first time buyer my wife and I bought a property marketed by Manning Stainton. The purchase involved a long chain and was complicated by a mortgage retention for work required to the roof. Mannings were very good at keeping us informed throughout the purchase and helpful in facilitating viewings and tradesmen visiting the property to quote for work prior to exchange. Subsequent negotiations were handled quickly and professionally. Due to the long chain agreeing a completion date/exchange...

ALL the staff at Manning Stainton, Horsforth were friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. They made me feel everything was under control and I had no worries in the slightest that the property would be sold quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team and will be using them in the future should I need to sell a property....

Karen was appointed to manage the sale of our property and the purchase of our next home, we had an offer accepted on a property which fell through not one, but twice, which coincided with the birth of our second child, as you can imagine this was already a stressful and exhausting time, exacerbated by the vendors of the house we wanted pulling out so close to exchange. Karen empathetically managed the situation and gave us reassurance that although the current situation was challenging that sh...

From start to finish I received an exemplary service from this estate agent, which was recommended to me by my solicitor in Leeds for sale of Horsforth properties. I had a particularly difficult situation but everyone I dealt with bent over backwards to accommodate my situation and get my property through to completion. All viewings were handled by the agent and at all times I received feedback, both via my personal login on the website and by phone. All in all I received a very professional, fr...

My self and my brother, would like to say how very pleased we were with all members of staff at the Horsforth branch. Having to sell our recently deceased fathers house, Sarah, Karen, Louise, were more than helpful and considerate. They answered our constant questions, with a smile. Every one was pleasant approachable and efficient. We can't thank all enough....

Throughout our sale of our old property (also through the same agent) and purchase of our new property we had excellent communication throughout. There was always someone on hand, they always returned calls. We had a window of time to sell our old house and buy our new house and they worked well with us, Sarah headed this up but Karen and and her colleagues always seemed to know where we were on the sale and purchase. We always felt we were being looked after. Many thanks. Jane & Dan....

Talk about on the ball. Karen had viewers lined up before the house was actually actively advertised. She had found a purchaser in 3 days and secured a sale in 4. Karen was a calming influence when things really took off....

The team at Mannings Horsforth have been nothing but supportive from initial valuation to final completion of my sale. We had lost a couple of buyers initially, due to thier financial circumstances changing, and Mannings immediately had new buyers lined up ready to view. As flats tend to take a little longer to sell in the locality we had anticipated being on the market for a while, but in total we were only activiely marketed for 4 weeks. Our sale process has been 'challenging' to say the least...

Bought my first home through Manning Stainton, and despite many hiccups along the way Gill (and Karen when she wasn't around) were absolutely brilliant. Answered my incessant calls and emails, always friendly and polite and quick to put my mind at ease. They made what could have been stressful situations much more bearable and I cannot fault the efforts they put in for me to finally get a completion. No complaints at all, thank you both :)...
