See what our customers say about Hunters Skipton team:

We obtained four market appraisals for our home. Hunters made the most professional presentation and their valuation was in the middle. Web ads very impressive with excellent photos. Within 10 weeks they had found us a cash buyer prepared to pay the full asking price. We were delighted. Thereafter the sale went through without a hitch. Very nice and competent people to deal with. Recommended.

Mr W- of Grassington

We have used Hunters Skipton for the sale of our house and also for the purchase of our new property. I would highly recommend Andrew and his team at Hunters. They are very professional, friendly and approachable and keep you updated throughout the process. Andrew conducted all our viewings and due to his professional and knowledgeable approach we were successful in the sale. Many Thanks to all at Hunters Skipton!

Miss N - Skipton

We put our property up for sale with Hunters. We had TWO offers for the house within 8 weeks of it going on the market at the price we wanted. We were delighted. A previous estate agent hadn't managed to do that in the 6 months it was on the market with them. We found the team at Hunters to be professional, helpful and proactive at all times and can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you Hunters in Skipton.

Miss L, Skipton
