I would like to thank your team for the work that they have done concerning the recent sale of my property, Upperfield House. Traditionally, estate agents have sometimes had a poor image. We have found this to be absolutely not the case with those working in your company. I would like to thank Shona in particular. She has been friendly and helpful even answering my queries late into the evening in her own time. She is a committed and hard working person and I hope that her efforts are fully appreciated by your organisation. I have also appreciated the efforts of Sarah and the other staff in your Ripponden office and wish them all the best for the future. Thank you for providing a professional and friendly service in selling my house.
David Walker, Upperfield House, Greetland
We would both wish to thank all members of your team for the commitment to the sale of our property. Thank you all.
Paul and Lynda Jackson, Cherry Meadow Farm, Selby
We are very happy with the service provided. The advice to proceed with the sale by an auction was clearly good advice and from my point of view, achieving a quick sale after 18 months of house clearing was highly desirable. I would be happy to use your company again.
Andrew Singleton, Daisy Mount, Brighouse
May I take this opportunity of thanking you, your colleagues and of course Stuart for all the help and effort you have provided to reach this very satisfactory conclusion.
Ed and Susan Howell, Glenfield, Northowram
Just a note to say thank you for your guidance and support over these past few weeks. We’ve been really impressed with the service we have received from the start and have already recommended Charnock Bates to friends.
Vicki and Simon, 39 Stainland Road, Barkisland
To all at Charnock Bates we just want to thank you for the excellent service you gave us in dealing with the sale of Arnsbrae. You were so helpful and efficient, it made our move easier. We wish you all the very best.
Majorie and Jim Donegan, Arnsbrae, Hebden Bridge
On behalf of both of us I want to say a big thank you for all your hard work and professionalism over the past months. You have done yourselves proud, no matter whom we speak to from the team, it has always been an informed and reliable dialogue. The manner in which you have always responded to things, large or small, has been excellent and we will highly recommend you all to anyone. We obviously are not buying in your area, but would happily go through the process with the team if we were.
Tony and Kirsty Taylor, The Keepers House, Kirklees Hall
We wish to give a big thank you for your professionalism, friendliness, help and continued patience throughout the sale of our property. Your service, the excellent brochure you provided along with the advertisement you set out were we believe what created such good interest in our property and ultimately sold our property
Mick and Sheila Hargrave, 25 Moor Close Lane, Queensbury
To all the staff, thank you very much for helping with the successful sale of our house. You were incredible, helpful, informative and professional. You answered every query the same day and got back to us to let us know you were looking into anything if you hadn’t the answer. Your negotiation skills between sellers and buyers were commendable.
Angela and Paul Stenson, Thackergate, Sowerby
Dear Stewart and team, many thanks for all your months of hard work in making our move happen.
Oliver and Lauren Morton, 6 Norwood Terrace, Norwood Green
To all the lovely girls at Charnock Bates, Many thanks for all your help in selling 3 Hollin Hall Farm.
Julia and John Hopkins, 3 Hollin Hall Farm, Denholme
Dear Charnock Bates team, Lauren and I would like to thank you for your help with the sale of our property. We found the team at Charnock Bates professional, courteous and knowledgeable and nothing we asked was ever any trouble. If we ever move house again we will be using Charnock Bates. Thanks again.
Chris and Lauren Dunne, 16 Harefield Park
There was every possibility that our sale would have come to a premature end but for the unfailing patience and competence shown by all the staff at Charnock Bates. Stewart was invaluable with his expertise when called upon, "steadying the ship" when matters got rocky. Isobel was diplomacy personified in our, at times difficult, dealings with those third parties involved in the transaction. We cannot recommend this firm highly enough, you’re the best estate agents ever, we could have never got through this process without your patience and support. Many many thanks.
Andrew and Ailsa Baines, Apple Tree Farm, Blackshaw Head
Thank you so so much for all your help through our sale! We massively appreciate everything you’ve done and won’t hesitate to recommend you.
Katie and Jonathan, 13 West Field, Hipperholme
I have been impressed and delighted with the service we have received from Charnock Bates. Your initial assessment of the properties and the state of the market proved spot on which was invaluable in helping me to form a realistic expectation. Your team was most efficient and effective in dealing with expressions of interest and viewings, in following up for feedback and reporting back to us. Negotiations were handled skilfully and the progress chasing to see the transactions through to completion was diligent and courteous. All in all, a good job well done.
James and Juliet Barker, The Old Vicarage, Cragg Vale
We have known Stewart Bates for over 5 years and in that time he has repeatedly provided sound and expert advice on the development of our property and ultimate sale. Our property was not the most typical in that it was built in the reign of Charles I, and with that come subtleties and nuances associated with age. Notwithstanding that, he has been able to see through the romance of the idyll and identify the pertinent practical issues that prospective buyers would see. It is all too easy to believe your own rhetoric about why the peculiarities of your house are an asset rather than a liability, but Stewart provided straight talking, honest advice which proved to be correct again and again.
Stewart's team at Charnock Bates provided much of the day to day contact during the marketing of our house, to the same levels of professionalism and friendliness as Stewart, producing a very fine quality brochure and service. How many times have you seen living rooms strewn with toys or kitchens with pet's bowls on the floor in property particulars? Not in the case of Charnock Bates.
Once the sale had been agreed, Stewart's personal contribution intensified to delicately guide the participants towards, and lubricate the process of, selling, through what turned out to be a very protracted and stressful process. Stewart's calmness and wise counsel kept us focused and positive throughout. In our opinion Stewart and Charnock Bates stand out as the most honest, honourable and proficient players in an industry all too often associated withless desirable attributes. We would like to thank Stewart and his team for their guidance and wish them every success in the future.
Richard and Julie Smith, Clay House, Soyland
Now that my current house has been signed over to new owners I am writing to thank you for your efforts on my behalf, please thank your staff also for their very professional help.
Christine McDonald, Holly Leigh, Lee Lane, Shibden
