Comment on agent fees
The fees were very reasonable for the service we received. We had a really good relationship with everyone at the branch; all the staff were helpful and friendly, and had our interests at heart. The only negatives were that we received no glossy brochure of our property (as it was already very popular before it could be printed), and there was a bit of miscommunication about the for sale sign going up outside our house. Despite this, we would recommend Dacre, Son & Hartley without hesitation.

I felt that the vendor fees I paid were value for money. My property was on sight in the window of the Skipton office, the for sale board went up quickly, I was advised of viewings and given feedback. Whilst I am aware of cheaper fees available, in consideration of the service I received, I would be happy to pay them again next time.
