I recently renewed a tenancy agreement following a disasterous attempt to move to another property with Martin & Co. I called in to speak with Madeleine at Ryder Dutton Huddersfield, who has been managing my property for the last 2 years and she gave me some excellent advise. As a result, I ended up staying with Ryder Dutton and signing a new agreement. The team in the Huddersfield branch were professional, and really fantastic in reacting to my request. Overall in the last 2 years, this age...

If you are selling your property in the Huddersfield area I would recommend using Ryder & Dutton. Right from the initial valuation through to completion and the tedious bit in the middle, all members of staff I had dealings with showed professionalism and enthusiasm to complete the sale as quickly and efficiently as possible....

Maddie, Catherine and the lettings team at Huddersfield were brilliant. Having returned from living abroad they expertly facilitated my move back to the UK, initially from abroad, making the whole process easy. Even when, at the last minute, the property I was about to let fell through, they did all they could to ensure I found a replacement home I loved in time for Christmas. I moved in on Dec 22nd and am delighted with both my new home and the service and support I received from Maddie and the...

Me and my partner are first time buyers, a lot of people told us how stressful it is so we were quite worried but all in all it could not have gone smoother, Cara was great helping us with the mortgage and even helped us with any queries on her day off. Emma has been fantastic throughout the whole process, she has kept us up to date all the way and had always been easy to contact with any of our questions, we couldn't thank her enough! All lovely staff at the Huddersfield branch!...

Most impressed with Ryder and Dutton, Lindley both from the initial viewing but mainly for the outstanding customer service from Michelle. Having purchased the house and whilst undergoing the legal process of buying I became seriously ill and ended up in hospital. Michelle was most kind and as well as updating me on the situation she was kind and caring in her approach to me. Michelle is a...

Lee visited me to discuss their services and gave me the confidence to proceed. Emma then dealt with the day to day stuff and has been the only agent I have ever dealt with who really met my expectations. Her enthusiasm and communication was excellent. She got involved at every step and I felt earned their fee rather than sit back as so many do and wait for custome...

Lee and Cara were both great. This review is about Ryder & Dutton, not about Lee or Cara. We chose Ryder & Dutton as they were selling the house we wanted to buy - we had had our offer accepted subject to us selling our house. We thought if the same estate agent was managing both then the process would be smoother. However, we were disappointed to learn that Ryder & Dutton arranged an Open House for the house we wanted to buy, a few weeks after our offer was accepted. We had thought ...
