Welcome to Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Heswall


Hunters Heswall branch is run by franchisee Richard Henderson. Richard entered estate agency in the Mid-Eighties with the then largest Firm in the U.K. Richard has been hooked on property ever since, gaining a thorough grounding in building and property development as well as marketing.

Richard's knowledge is immense, having spent more than twenty years working in Chester and Wirral, managing top performing and flagship offices.

In 2010 Richard used his genuine passion for property and successful track record to set up his business, being now proud to be part of the national Hunters property Group. Richard is an integral part in establishing what is now considered to be one of Wirral's most Dynamic Estate Agents.

I had a number of Estate Agents visit my late mother in law’s house as we personally didn’t know the area that well in terms of selling a house that was once a loving home for 40 years for my wife and expatriate brother in law. All the Agents were professional & precise in their approach – and thus their attempt to sell themselves convincingly & hard but not too hard, was for me, not convincing at all. What made me settle on Hunters in Heswall then, was the relaxed approach. So relaxed, the Agent was almost lying down on the sofa! Not quite, but this almost blasé approach was a refreshing change. I liked the Agent personally and there was no hard sell. My subsequent interactions and emailing’s were quick and responsive. Any questions were immediately answered comprehensively in understandable English. Towards the end, before officially selling, a cup of tea was appreciated at the Office on one of my frequent several hour journeys to & fro sorting the house out. Needless to say, the house was sold (provisionally) in three days at the top price asked for. I appreciated the fact that there was no bartering down of the asking price and so in turn I respectively decided not to try and raise the asking price in a so called ‘bidding war’ with other Agents. It was our family home and the fact that a lovely new couple with a new born have now moved in is a delight and gives us great satisfaction. It brings our family grief in regards to the home, a wonderful ending. Thanks to Hunters for a well conducted, though brief, working relationship. I highly recommend them indeed to anyone selling in the Heswall area of Wirral.

Mr J, Heswall

Following the death of our parents, my sister and I had to sell our family home. This was not easy because my sister lives on the other side of the UK, and I live abroad. However, after speaking to several agents, my brother-in-law recommended Hunters, and the whole process went very smoothly thanks to the help and support of the Hunters team. They understood our circumstances, were very professional, and their approach to doing business was ethical: a fair rate, which they only claim if they are involved in making the sale. We received a bid within three days of the property going on the market, and the sale was finalized within a couple of months. I would recommend Hunters to anyone who wants to sell through a responsible agency that they can trust.

Mr W, Heswall

From start to finish I have been nothing but impressed by Richard and Stephen at Hunters Heswall. They responded quickly to my request for a valuation and were prepared to fit in around my schedule. Richard took the time to find out about me and my family and his valuation of my property was well thought through and demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the local property market. He explained his ideas for marketing the property and, rather than stick to a standard formula, these were bespoke to the property, area and my situation. The fee I was offered was competitive and from instruction Richard moved quickly to take fantastic photographs which were a credit to my house and the work I'd undertaken on it. Richard and Stephen set up a number of viewings within hours of the property going on the market. Richard showed all viewers round himself which resulted in several offers and I was very pleased with the price we achieved. I was then offered support in my onward purchase. Viewings of Hunters properties were arranged quickly and I was shown around them by Richard. I was also given advice on properties I was viewing with other agents which proved invaluable. Once my chain was in place, Stephen and Richard were always on hand to offer advice and support as the sale and purchase went through. I cannot recommend Hunters Heswall highly enough, their approach was friendly and caring as well as knowledgable and professional.

Ms B, Heswall

We recently purchased our first family home through Hunters, Heswall. Richard and Stephen were brilliant, right from our initial enquiry and spent time showing us round the property and informing us of the previous owners. Richard and Stephen are both so friendly and informative and helped answer all our questions and keep us informed on the progress of our purchase. They made the process of buying our home happy and stress free! Thanks to both!

Ms S, Heswall

I purchased my house 5 years ago through Hunters (then Bradshaw Henderson) and just sold it with them too. House was valued honestly and realistically to sell and not over valued like competitors did to try and win my business to be told to reduce it 2 months later-oldest trick in the book but still going on!! Phone calls always answered or returned promptly if not and was kept in the loop throughout the sale. Talking of going the extra mile Hunters even contacted the new owner for me when we realised we'd left some sentimental cutlery in the dishwasher-Steve was straight on the phone and got it back for us!! Many thanks to all at Hunters Heswall, keep up the good work.

Mr D, Heswall

We have just purchased a property through Hunters and we could not recommend them enough! Our sale was not straightforward owing to my fiancée being self-employed but the staff at Hunters were incredibly understanding and helpful. Thanks again Richard and Stephen!

Mr & Mrs D, Heswall

We chose Hunters because they had recently sold another property in the same road and we wanted a local estate agent who knew the market well. Hunters staff and management were very friendly and knowledgeable, from pricing the property correctly to advising on the best way to market the property. They found a buyer within two weeks of advertising. Unfortunately the sale fell through, but Hunters had retained details of all other enquiries and quite quickly found another buyer who has now completed the purchase of the house. Throughout the process they kept us fully informed of any developments and were unfailingly positive and reassuring, whilst also being realists about managing expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective buyers or sellers.
