Major problems with my solicitors, whose inefficiency turned a straightforward conveyancing deal into a major production, caused numerous unnecessary delays in my house purchase. Frequent calls to my solicitors often went unanswered and if it hadn't to been for the dedicated staff at the Skipton branch of Dacre, Son and Hartley, I am not all sure that the purchase would gone through yet! I have nothing but praise for the way they dealt with a difficult situation. A situation not of their own making!

We are delighted with the service from the Skipton branch. Communication has been excellent, and with a very personalised approach. Couldn't recommend more highly.
I've very impressed with the kindness and support from the Carling Jones staff. I asked for help on behalf of the local church and they couldn't have been more willing to see what they could do. Their response showed that they care about more than just business.
Awful-didn't help me at all as rented house full of black mould due to leak caused by landlord's.bungled DIY job. Not interested at all in my distress.
Fantastic, friendly service. From the first viewing when we initially met Ben, we knew the whole process of the sale of our second home was in safe hands with Savills. Jennifer Kendrew was our daily point of contact with Savills York and we consider ourselves very lucky to have worked with her throughout this process. We received invaluable advice prior to putting the house on the market and throughout the sales process. Their photography company, who completed the images for both the sales brochure and internet images, were highly professional and worked wonders. There were a few hundred miles between our residence and the house we were selling, leading to its own challenges, but Jennifer could not have been more helpful and motivational. From the one and only open day, which Jennifer attended, several offers were received, culminating in the final sale. No mean feat in the current uncertain and challenging economic climate. Regardless of the issues to be discussed, Jennifer handled all communication with ourselves in a pro-active way as well as tricky negotiations with 3rd parties. Should a problem or delay arise, Jennifer always found a way to solve it with excellent communication skills and a can-do attitude. We would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer and the Savills York team for anyone considering selling their house in the area.
We had initially commenced marketing our property through a well established local agents, after 12 months we had very little to show for it, and a similar result using a well known "On Line" agent. Following advise from another agent we moved to Savills. What a difference right from the start they really did their utmost to actually try and find potential buyers. rather than just using their web site and office window. Ben Pridden gave us some very sensible advise about the market, our actual geographical position, and what we could realistically expect in our situation. Jennifer Kendrew worked diligently in exposing our property to the market, appearing regularly in many publications from national papers to niche magazines. Having eventually found a prospective purchaser she lead them through the financial details resulting in a 'done deal'. Their dedication and perseverance were outstanding.
Rude, arrogant, obnoxious! I would avoid like the plague. Don't return calls, slow to act. Amazing companies like this one are still trading in the 21st century. I notice that there one 5 star review was written by themselves.
