I originally purchased my property from Duncan Yeardley more than 10 years ago and was struck then how helpful they were. This year when I needed a letting agent to manage the property for me, I had no hesitation in making Duncan Yeardley my first call. Right from the outset they were extremely helpful and arranged a time convenient to me to meet me at the property, where I met Helen. From that point on, Helen has taken care of everything. The service I have received has been exceptional and e...

Moving home under any circumstances is hugely stressful. The team at Duncan Yeardley were great to work with. They pride themselves on efficiency and and go above and beyond their duties to support you. The sale of my home was so easy, and Nick was able to negotiate the best purchase price for me. Moving into a rental, Jane and Maureen have been so effective in all matters. Nothing has ever been too much trouble. Duncan Yeardley are a pleasure to work with and I hope that if I need to work with...

I sold my bungalow quickly following excellent advice from Nigel Richards of Duncan Yeardley Estate Agents. Nigel was always helpful, professional, knowledgable and attentive to detail.

Moving into a new property was becoming a mission for us, with such extortionate moving charges and the attitude of the estate agents was putting us off from moving where we were. But Lee was ever so good. Then Helen came on scene. We cant sing enough praises of this team in Bracknell, from viewing, to moving in, to charging a very reasonable fees. Maureen Cooper, Helen and Lee made it all possible for us very smoothly. They are very friendly and relaxed in their approach. All the paper work wa...

Nigel and Maureen have been amazing! Nigel came out to value my rental property and later to take measurements and details. He was very professional yet friendly and approachable. He answered questions and concerns I had and, with the rest of the team in Bracknell, worked fast to get the property on the market and find a suitable tenant. He has been a pleasure to deal with. Maureen then became my point of contact once the tenants had been found... She has gone above and beyond the call of dut...

We first used Duncan Yeardley when looking to buy a property but sadly didn't buy through them however they were by far the best agent we used. On the basis of this we were keen to use them to help us let our house and they certainly delivered. Helen was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient and has secured us tenants within two working days of instruction at full asking price. They left their high street competitor who we also instructed at the post and went on to offer help and advice with cle...

This was our first buy-to-let investment, so there was lots to learn along the journey. I initially visited the offices of Duncan Yeardley to get advice on purchasing, I found them very helpful, knowledgeable and not all pushy. Although we didn't purchase the property in the end through Duncan Yeardley I had in my mind that we would definitely use them for the letting process. Nothing was too much rouble and Helen thoroughly explained the letting process to me and gave advice. Very happy, fo...

The team at Duncan Yeardley provided excellent service for me when I bought a home in 1992, and sold a home in 2003, and so I had no hesitation in recommending them to my mum for her move in April 2016. I am delighted to be able to say that the support given by the team, and in particular Jane Rogers, managed to exceed my high expectations. The entire team are not only professional and knowledgeable in their field, but extremely caring, and they supported my mum admirably through a difficult ...

Excellent service throughout. Contacted Helen as needed to rent our house in Forest Park with some urgency, we live over 200 miles away so everything needed to be handled for us, Helen understood our needs from the off set and put the wheels in motion immediately following our conversation, Helen and her team worked really hard to secure us a great tenant and to top it off got our asking price, we didn't need to worry as it was all taken care of for us. Would definitely recommend Duncan Yeardley...

Outstanding service from a friendly, helpful team. Jane was very proactive in contacting us, our buyers and the various solicitors to keep us up-to-date with progress and to keep the process moving along, especially in the final 2 hectic weeks before completion. And she, Judy and the rest of the team were always friendly, polite and happy to help with even the smallest of queries. I believe the whole team knows the market inside out, and gave us an honest, reliable service from start to finish. ...

As a remote landlord I asked for a quotation for tenant finding and the required preliminaries (tenant checking, immigration status etc.) prior to the start of the new tenancy. The quote was very pleasing and I accepted it. Prospective tenants showed up within 24 hours and one was signed up as quickly as I imagine is possible. Void time was minimal. They use an online service call Docusign so I was able to 'sign' the tenancy agreement online. Service was excellent throughout and they are willin...

No pressure or the usual Sales strategies you get from other agents who put you under pressure to sell.

From the moment of our first contact, through to visits and offer, the friendly professional service has been second to none. When and if the time comes to us moving on and selling, we would only use this wonderful agent. It has been a real joy to not be pressurised or continually be contacted about any issue. Due to this I have enjoyed, if that's possible, the whole process of buying through them. Thank you to all the team at Duncan Yeardley....

Having invited several agents along to value our house, we decided to choose Duncan Yeardley as they are local & had successfully sold several other homes in our area. We decided to do an Open House for which they generated a good number of viewings on the day & this resulted in three offers. This led to us accepting an offer over the asking price! Jane Rogers dealt with pushing the sale through; keeping us well informed of progress & working towards a date that suited all parties. W...

It's unusual for me to feel so positive about estate agents as I have had some good but mostly horrifying experiences, so with my usual dread I visited Duncan Yeardley and from the first conversation I felt in safe hands, but still expecting the worst is yet to come! I was never more wrong. Being kept informed by friendly positive and competent staff who sold the property without bombarding or pressurising me into making decisions that needed some thinking about. I was guided through the proce...

My experience of house buying and selling was quite tedious because my vendor pulled out just before exchange of contracts and resulted in my purchaser doing the same. So I needed to start the process again. For this reason I had a lot of contact with Duncan Yeardley! Throughout the whole process everyone at the estate agents was very helpful and did what they said they would do. In particular, Jane Rogers was a star! She kept me informed of everything I needed to know. She was very professio...

I can highly recommend using Duncan Yeardley estate agents in Bracknell. Their service was at all times very professional. The staff took an interest in describing various features about the property, when doing the viewings and took care to leave the place secure when they left after a viewing. Despite my being gazumped more than once, having several buyers pull out and all sorts of other complications over a period of 3 years, all staff were very helpful and caring, which helped ease the str...

We were immediately impressed with duncan Yeardley as they were polite and friendly when booking an appointment to put our property up for sale. Nick then came round and went through everything and made us feel confident they would handle our sale well, despite not being a big national, these days with rightmove etc a high street presence is less important. The deciding factor was letting us decide if we should use them, (others were very pushy eg calling the morning after an evening appointment...

Our hearts told us to go with Duncan Yeardley but we were uncertain because they are a single agency and, although we had every confidence that they could manage the property, we thought that perhaps they might not be able to find tenants as well as some of the larger, multi-agents. This is because ours was a larger and somewhat unique property which we thought may be harder to let. However, we followed our hearts and how pleased we were that we did so. Duncan Yeardley found tenants within just ...

Duncan Yeardley recommended a monthly rental of £1,500.00, which was mid-range compared to fees recommended by other agents which varied from £1,450.00 to £1,600.00. This was because many people set a limit of £1,500.00 in their search criteria when looking for properties to rent. When tenants were found within an hour, we wondered if we could have achieved a slightly higher rent (this is human nature!) but, overall, we feel that it is a fair rent and are really pleased with it.

Judy is a very understandable and patient, asking the right questions in order to find you a property that you're exactly looking for.
