10 Reasons to Choose Peter David Properties

I couldn't fault you even if I wanted to. Excellent service from start to finish from Matt, Liz and Vicky. You know how to deal with people as well as houses. You made me feel secure, kept me in the loop at all times and delivered what you said you would. Thank you.

Mrs A, Hebden Bridge (vendor now living in Bristol, November 2015)

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with the sale of our house. I really appreciate that you were always on the end of the phone, chasing people up on our behalf and keeping the lines of communication open between us and our buyers. This made the process much easier for us being so far away - so THANK YOU!

Mr & Mrs B, Sowerby Bridge (vendors, July 2015)

One card, two thank you's. Wonderful service. Love and all the best for 2015 and beyond.

D, Sowerby Bridge (vendor, May 2015)

We can't thank you enough Helen for your friendly, professional, on-the-ball personality we've had the pleasure of dealing with since April. I remember the first call to arrange a valuation and hearing your broad Yorkshire accent and thinking "hhmm I like Peter David best so far" and you've kept that up since then. We cannot imagine doing all of this without you, I don't think you realise how supportive you've been through a house move, marriage and a sudden loss. You've chased things without me having to ask and just have a way of calming things down when the frustrating days got too much.You were our perfect match to help us get our new home and we can never thank you enough. Peter David Properties have a very special added touch having you on their team and if anyone was to ask if we would recommend I would hand on heart say 100% and I believe that's very rare these days to say. (As you know I'm tough to please!!!!) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Have a fantastic Christmas, enjoy family time and I shall see you on Facebook!

Mrs C, Wheatley (vendor, December 2014)

I also wanted to say a big thank you. You have been invaluable in the purchase of Copley Drive. We really appreciate all your efforts to move things forward and keep communications going. It has been a stressful time for us and it helped us greatly to have our questions answer so quickly (solicitors are not always so helpful!). If we ever sell Copley Drive we would absolutely use Peter David Properties and would highly recommend you also. I look forward to putting a face to the voice on Friday when I collect the keys!

Mrs H, Copley (buyer, October 2015)

I should have waited 30 minutes as it is all completed now, so please release the keys. Thanks for your help in making this all happen, it is very much appreciated and so nice to find an agent who is pleasant to work with. If you need a recommendation at any time, please just ask.

Mr K, Rastrick (vendor, October 2015)
