We dealt with John for the sale of my dad’s house. He gave us a fair valuation on the property and was knowledgeable about the market to know the best way to get viewings. Once an offer was accepted, he was proactive with helping to keep things moving in the chain despite a few problems with the chain either side. I would recommend Hunters. Thanks for all your help

Ms Adele D

John Ashton helped me to sell my property and with negotiations with another agency to buy the property I wanted. I could not have done it without him, he was amazing throughout the process and I was super impressed.

Ms Mary C

Very reactive and knowledgeable sales team! I am very happy with the service, they were all very professional. John was always available and friendly.

Local area guide

Northenden, as the name describes was the northern village in Cheshire, now a residential area in the City on Manchester. Its vast parkland and trails alongside the Mersey make it an ideal family area, blessed with great schools and communications. We are minutes away from Manchester International Airport excellent hospitals and three major Universities.

With only five miles to Manchester centre there are major music, theatre and other cultural events every week of the year, including major Christmas markets complimenting the largest Marks & Spencer’s store, not forgetting Harvey Nichols and Selfridge’s.

Described as having the fasted growth in prices in UK, outside Chelsea (Autumn 2016), the area still offers great capital growth opportunities in BTL and homes with super value for money prices.
