Viewed a property with principal Simon Blyth whom we found highly knowledgeable and converse with local market. Helpful and friendly staff at Holmfirth office when looking to purchase a large period home
Don't even consider this estate agents if renting they are absolutely useless and hav'nt got a clue what there doing !!!! Caused my daughter and her partner a huge amount of stress also leaving them no where to live ......
The Applegate team marketed our unusual property extremely well and got loads of interest for us, they kept us informed all through the process and were always happy to answer our questions. Thanks for making our sale go smoothly to completion.
I was very disappointed to have my viewing for a property arranged twice with notice to me served only 24 hours before the property was due to be used. I would never recommend using Applegate to anybody I know and I would strongly suggest for new customers to stay away from Applegate to avoid being messed around by them. Appointments are scheduled buteother incorrectly noted or not confirmed and have a staff have unwillingness to compromise on tenants who are trying to for their schedules around them.
The staff have been really great, helpful and cheery with us throughout whilst sorting out renting a property. Gemma and John are both super helpful and professional and Georgia who showed us around the property twice was lovely and understanding. Everyone was very accommodating to us on a tight time scale and really excited to move in this weekend. Thanks so much chaps.
We found them to be very straight forward and 'honest' in their advice and work. Whole of the office were a pleasure to deal with, always friendly and efficient. Very glad we chose them for our sale.
Did an amazing job of finding me my first home! Both agents and mortgage advisor were great to work with throughout the whole process. Thank you!

We wouldn’t use this estate agent again nor would we recommend them to anyone looking to buy a first home. Unfortunately William H Brown need to be more selective and careful of the vendors that they choose to work with.
We are first time buyers and had an offer accepted on a house, and subsequently the property was taken off the market by William H Brown. However, further down the line, as we were looking forward to moving into our new home, we then had a phone call to say that they had received another offer which was instead being accepted. This is despite being told categorically that we had secured the property. It was completely unscrupulous.
Overall, it was a very frustrating, stressful and cruel experience, which we will learn from as first time buyers. We certainly won't be continuing the search for our first home with William H Brown.
It is so so true, “ you get what you pay for” ! Forget internet agencies, what we need as a seller is an agency that is truly on your side, checking buyers are genuine, chasing up on progress, and just generally being there physically to deal with tricky negotiations, and offering professional advice with a smile ! It is worth a lot to be able to call in to the branch and see people face to face who are dealing with your sale. The Holmfirth branch of Ryder and Dutton get my top marks, a five star rating for their services. NIcola, Caroline and Fiona are all up to speed with each stage of the sale and have kept me regularly updated and Richard has provided important additional oversight and support when I was unable to be at my property for viewings with my buyer’s surveyor. I am grateful for their genuine concern too, that all should go well for me. They are the best team, always so friendly and that’s what you need when selling can be stressful and fraught with uncertainties. Thank you all, and I am happy to tell any future clients that without hesitation, they should have the backing of the Holmfirth branch, if they want to chose the best local estate agent to deal with their house sale.
So pleased we chose Applegate to sell our property. The staff were knowledgeable, polite and very helpful every time we dealt with them, and kept us up to date throughout. Would highly recommend.
Applegate have been very helpful in arranging for me and my partner to get the house wanted after this originally being taken up by another tenant but subsequently falling through. I appreciated them telling me that the property was back on the market and they could not have been more helpful in getting the house we wanted. I would recommend Applegate to anybody in the Huddersfield/Wakefield area. Very professional company
