We purchased a house through Mike Dobson Estate Agents (Garforth Office) in July 2017. Following calling to arrange a viewing of the property, we were met by Sam who showed us around the property. Sam was knowledgeable of the house / area. We then submitted an offer on the property which went to sealed bids. This was dealt with by Belinda, who from start to finish was a true professional. Belinda was always contactable by email and phone and would always do whatever she could to assist. This hou...

The last time we moved home was 22 years ago!! So without the expertise of Belinda and team..Val...Liz and Zoe...this could have been quite a scary journey for us in our retiring years but they we're so professional as they guided us along our future path to negotiate a successful sale so we were able to buy our new forever home. And as we had not been within the process of selling and buying for 22 years my queries were many!! I think I was added to their family and friends list as we communica...

We have dealt with Belinda from Mike Dobson twice and on both occasions have been more than happy with the service we received. Belinda really knows the business, can guide you through the full process and can answer any questions you can think of, and many besides. She is not just there in a professional capacity but also as a caring person who really makes a difference to the sometimes fraught business of selling/buying a house. Belinda has kept in touch with us to see how we have settled, an...

All agents have to make a living, while we may think the fees are a bit steep but if the agents have done a good job then the fee is worth it.

It's a true family firm which excellent knowledge of the LS25 and surrounding area property market. Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly but special thanks go to Liz and Belinda who not only found us a buyer in six days with an almost asking price offer but who also went above and beyond in trying to help us find a property.

I sold my house with a matter of days using Mike Dobson's. The valuation was realistic and the advice given was both professional and helpful. We had a number of viewings within hours of and we specifically wanted a quick sale with a cash buyer. The ideal buyer was found and the sale completed within 6 weeks with no further complications from start to finish. We were kept informed at every stage and I would highly recommend Mike Dobson's estate agents to anyone wanting to sell a house within the...

We very recently purchased our first house through Mike Dobson. Being first time buyers, we had no experience in purchasing a home, and the staff were brilliant with us right from start to finish. If there were any questions we had, they did their best to help us, and Liz in particular was invaluable to us right from making our offer to completion! Liz made the whole process so much easier for us, and we were really grateful for such brilliant service. We are over the moon with our new home and ...

We have just completed our house sale through Dobson's and was fully informed throughout the process. We had several offers all competing for our house which was very welcome. The staff at Dobson's gave good advice and we can't thank Belinda, Zoe, Liz and Sam enough. We gave them the keys and they did several viewings and sorted out appointments with surveyors etc. We received the full asking price which was a bonus....

We used Dobsons for the sale of our house, which they sold within 4 weeks. The service we received from the very start right up until completion was outstanding. We were kept in the loop at all times. Liz would go above & beyond on many occasions to ensure everything went smoothly. I find buying and selling extremely stressful and Liz did her upmost to try and keep it stress free. If selling I. Garforth & surrounding areas Dobsons are a must....

I moved into my new home 2 months ago after selling my home using Mike Dobson of Garforth, from the valuation to the end sale and purchase of my current home also from their office I felt as though I mattered and was not just another vendor/buyer. The valuation was spot on and I received the amount very close to it. Liz came to my home and took excellent photos showing my property at it's best, it went live the Saturday afternoon and I had several viewers on the Monday with an offer the next day...

We dealt with Mike Dobson's for the sale and purchase of our new property. Their service was professional and attentive, with the office manager Liz Armstrong being extremely personable and thorough in her work. Dobson's who were recommended to us by a friend are a fantastic agent which is personified by their MD Matthew who also took the time to discuss the finer details of our sale / purchase. If you're looking for an agent in East Leeds then I would definitely recommend....

We have used Mike Dobson estate agents for both selling & buying a house, and they have always gone the extra mile. It was therefore no surprise that when we needed a rental house on a 6 month contract they were able to deliver beautifully. Straight forward, outstanding value and friendly with it. I wouldn't go anywhere else for anything property related. Thank you....

Belinda provided outstanding service during the sale process for my parents' house. She went above and beyond, providing a line of communication rarely seen in this day and age, even going so far as providing me with a mobile phone number, and responding to any queries, even outside of office hours! Belinda is a bubbly, good humoured person with a 'can do' attitude, and very diplomatic....an asset to any business! She gave me total confidence in the sale process, and I can't thank her enough....

Excellent value for money. Don't be fooled by the online 'bargain basement' fees quoted by the likes of Purple Bricks.....with those guys everything other than basic paperwork is charged for. With Mike Dobson's, you give them the keys to your property, and leave them to it. For a reasonable fixed fee, they deal with all prospective buyers, arrange and attend viewings without you needing to be there, and provide timely feedback. And moreover, they give realistic valuations, as they know the local property market, rather than give inflated valuations in order to secure business; My parents' house in the end sold for exactly the price indicated by Mike in the initial valuation. There must have been 10 viewings of the property, all conducted by MikeDobsons staff, and subsequent reports to me.....I hesitate to think what the costs for that would have been with an online agent, or the hassle for myself. Estate Agents get a bad press, often for good reason, but I can testify that MikeDobsons is a progressive, innovative company with old fashioned values, and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Matthew Dobson at Dobson's really takes all the pressure and stress out of finding someone to rent your property. He is helpful yet professional and you can have full faith in him finding the correct tenants for you. He has been in this field for a good number of years and experience is everything. He let my property within 24 hours and I couldn't be happier. It has gone so smooth and I can recommend them , you won't be disappointed....

I would just like to extend my thanks to all the staff at Mike Dobsons Estate Agents Garforth. In perticular Matthew for going the extra mile and helping me in finding my new home. As a first time buyer this can be a very traumatic time, so many unknowns, fees and legal areas that look like a mine field. However the personal touch and constant communication I received was competant and suffice. I would recommend this family run, friendly and expert service to anyone. The personal touch I...

Fantastic service by the staff at Dobson's. proactively tried to sell our house and did so within a week. Called is regularly with updates and things were stalling with our buyers solicitor they chased them up and kept us in the loop with expected completion/ what was holding it up. All staff we dealt with were really friendly. If you're going to buy or sell a house in Garforth Dobsons are the best. We bought our new house off another agent and they were terrible in comparison....
