See what our customers say about Hunters Ilkley team:

I have been viewing properties with two of your competitors, but they have been shambolic on viewings and arrangements to view. Your staff were brilliant and knew all the answers to the questions asked. My friends, who have lived in Ilkley for a long time, told me to go with another agent, but I am thankful that I didn't listen to them.

Mr G, Ilkley

I chose Hunters Ilkley because they always answer the phone, rather than having to go through the number pressing route used by other agents.

Mr K, Ilkley

As a recent purchaser of a property in Ilkley, I would highly recommend Hunters Ilkley. From the 1st and 2nd viewings of the property with Andy (on two consecutive days), Andy made sure that everything went smoothly, getting answers to my queries and checking back to ensure all was well, and what was really fantastic was when he was on holiday Lester not only took over but was available out of office hours. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone and even after the purchase was completed all the staff continued to provide superb service. Thank you all so much.

Mrs L, Ilkley

After struggling to find a genuine buyer for my property for five months, I changed estate agents and used Hunters Ilkley. Two months later I have a completed sale at a good price. Hunters did everything they promised to do, including chasing up solicitors when necessary. They kept me informed of progress and I would recommend them to anyone.

Mrs R, Ilkley

Buying and selling our houses concurrently with Hunters Ilkley was as straight forward as it possibly could be. The main thing that stood out were the staff who were friendly and open whilst also being professional. They were always there to help and answer questions. It was all quick, efficient and I would definitely recommend their services.

Mr S, Ilkley

Thank you so much for your, Lester’s and everyone’s efforts on our behalf – we have really valued your approachability, and your very good advice at every stage. We will be recommending Hunters Ilkley to everyone!

Mrs H, Ilkley

Having now used Hunters Ilkley to sell my property it is clear to me that you have the same attitude and believe in client care as I do, as well as staff that share those beliefs, a rare commodity of which you should be immensely proud. The proof of this observation is in the fact that the overwhelming majority of the negotiations for the property sale took place whilst you were on holiday and it is of great credit to you and your company that you were not missed. With age comes a propensity to look back longingly and bemoan the fact that “things were better then”. It is good therefore to deal with a company that provides service standards that are as good as any, and better than most, that I have experienced during my working lifetime.

Mr R, Ilkley

Hunters Ilkley were amazing at dealing with our purchase. From the initial offer acceptance to completion this took only 3.5 weeks which is unheard of. Hunters Ilkley were 100% on the ball with our purchase and they worked very hard with our solicitors to ensure a fast track purchase. I would recommend Hunters Ilkley and I will certainly use them again for future house sales / purchase.

Mr D, Ilkley

We used Hunters Ilkley last year to sell our house. Hunters made the sale a smooth and easy process, from organising viewings and negotiating on our behalf through to the completion. We dealt mainly with Andy, who was professional and approachable and the office staff who were reliable and friendly. We would certainly recommend Hunters.

Mrs & Mrs M, Ilkley

Ours was a difficult property to sell – a third floor apartment without lift access. Two other local agents had already tried without success. However, Hunters Ilkley were like a breath of fresh air. With their enthusiasm and hard work we soon had a series of viewings, one of which eventually led to a sale. I would not hesitate to recommend this company – so much better than other local estate agents.
