Excellent from start to finish. high standard of professional valuation so property went to market at the right price. Jason was knowledgeable and courteous with a good understanding of the local area. Then Niki took capable control of every aspect as the property was advertised. She was there though all the ups and downs, sorting any problems and keeping me fully informed. I am very grateful to Richard Kendall and their top notch staff. I would heartily recommend them. Thanks again for your f...

Having recently purchased a property from Richard Kendall estate agent in Wakefield, I realised the value of a mainstreet agent as opposed to the online one I chose to sell with. I was struggling to communicate with my agent, when in stepped Niki who was the ultimate professional and went the extra mile every time I called.Problems, which my agent should have solved, were overcome thanks to Niki. She's a credit to her employer, she has a great work ethic and she is also a lovely person. Tha...

She is practical, logical, thoughtful, empathetic and efficient. It was like my friend was helping me move home. Her updates are timely, her guidance is professional, and her approach is so positive its infectious. Thank you so much Niki for being by my side for such a key milestone in my world :)...

Richard Kendall have sold both my properties over recent years and they may seem expensive but you absolutely get what you pay for. If you want a faceless service for a major life milestone, with no one to share the excitement, be with you every step of the way and feel like you have an extension of friends wishing you well, Richard Kendall is not for you. The fee was worth every single penny and whist ever they are in business, they will always get mine.

My experience with Richard Kendall Estate Agents has been a wholly positive one. My property was valued by Jason Kent at Β£20,000 more than a rival agent and this proved to be the correct approach. Within minutes of the particulars going live I had an appointment to view and over the next 8-9 days had 15 viewings and two offers for the full asking price, one of which I accepted. Throughout the process Catherine, Lucy and other members of staff kept me fully up to date at all times, chasing soli...

Putting you at ease throughout the whole process. Dealing with queries, returning calls promptly, providing updates and reassuring you when things do not go to plan. Hopefully this will be our last move for a long time but if I do decide to sell my home I would definitely use Richard Kendall. Thank you ladies, it has been a ple...

The house went on the market on the Thursday and was sold on the Friday!! Great service and very reasonable fees. Would definitely recommend and use again in the future....

Elizabeth Cooke was allocated to the sale of the property and was totally professional throughout the whole process. We were very impressed with her manner both on the telephone and in person.

Our property was sold within two days of going on the market therefore the fees seem very high given the amount of input initially provided by the sales team. However, the process to completion lacked pace and tenacity so we were very grateful for the professional support we received from Elizabeth during this frustrating time.

It's a property that we had re-listed for sale having completely renovated it and Richard Kendall sold it very quickly. Catherine Kilbride was ruthlessly efficient (and when she was unavailable Lucy Harrison was also brilliant). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Richard Kendall - by far the best agent in this area - others don't come close...

She was very tenacious in chasing all the parties, and kept me up to date on what was happening and what needed to happen. As these things do, they always take longer than anticipated, but she dealt with my moans in a very professional but happy demeanour. I would definitely use Richard Kendall and especially Elizabeth again....
