We have recently bought a house in Ilkley through Hunters Ilkley Office. I guess all house purchases have their challenges big and small. Whilst there were some complications with ours any issues which arose were professionally and quickly dealt with by Hunters. Lester Hurst and his staff are very professional yet friendly, acting for their clients whilst helping the purchasers to bring about a successful sale/purchase. We were very pleased with our experience working with Hunters and whilst not thinking about a move at this early stage, should we move at some point in the future, they would be our estate agents of choice.
From start to finish the service provided by the team at Dacres has been brilliant. They made what can be a difficult process smooth and as stress free as possible. All the staff we encountered in our local office - Ilkley. Were incredibly friendly seemed very experienced and we felt had great personal knoweldge of the area and the local market.
New build team knew less information than us. Got told that a contract was just a piece of paper and didn't mean a thing.
Ribston Pippin? are a fantastic agency, I would recommend them every time. Excellent communicators , they made selling my house feel easy.
Appear to be purely reactive. Only 3 viewings after 17 weeks! Lost proposed purchase as a result. In the 20 week total contract period, more interest/communications received from other local agents than Ribston Pippin. Complete waste of time!
Reinforcing estate agent stereotypes - liars that are only out for themselves. Viewed a property which we fell in love with - told the agents our position in terms of what we could pay, and they responded as if we were wasting their time. We were treated like idiots. The house did eventually sell, and looking at the land registry sale prices, we were offering more than the house sold for. Offer never submitted by the agents.
Less established agents in the area will do a lot more to help you.
