As we are moving to Australia, our timing of sale and the process were quite challenging. I can highly recommend Stephanie and Kirsty as they both helped us throughout the process. They were both on the other side of the phone or e-mail, responding instantly to any queries we had. The sale process was handled professionally and I would use Ryder in the future without a doubt....

Having suffered the loss of my mother at the end of 2016, the difficult task of selling her property fell on my shoulders. I met with Stephanie Hill initially and she was extremely helpful and professional so I agreed to go ahead with the sale. Since that time and throughout the process, I have been in regular contact with Katie Melling who has been so helpful and informative. Her telephone manner is a real credit to her and I always felt at ease talking to her. I am aware the Katie has only r...

We'd like to say a big "Thank You" to Kirsty of Ryder & Dutton Halifax! As foreigners who just moved to this area for less than a year and first time buyers too, we can image how difficult it could've been, if without Kirsty's help, to go through the complicated house purchasing process. But fortunately she made it easy and pleasant. One thing we feel truly appreciated was how efficient and effective Kirsty was on communication. She kept us informed and updated all the time....

Comment on agent fees
The agent's fees are in-line with other agent's whom I have dealt with and are certainly not aimed at top-tier pricing to the exclusion of potential private tennants or potential buyers. They have a wide range of properties on offer and are clearly very popular with landlords, tenants and buyers alike.
