Maxwell Hodgson Estate Agents are celebrating their 10th year in Wetherby this month. Since opening their doors to the public ten years ago they have never looked back, having quickly established an astounding presence of distinctive deep red and grey boards in the area firstly from offices in Westgate then expanding in 2012 to larger premises right in the centre of Wetherby on High Street.
Director, Max Hodgson, said ‘When we decided to open 10 years ago we strongly believed there was a great opportunity for us in Wetherby but we were also realistic about the fact that launching a new business in competition with long established agents in a tightening market was not going to be easy.’
Nevertheless, in the face of adversity, Maxwell Hodgson have gone from strength to strength winning an excellent reputation.
Their style is small and fiercely independent rather than ‘pile ‘em high’.
‘The fact that as owners of the business we deal personally with all our clients has set us apart from the competition. Because this is our business, we have exceptional determination, attitude and enthusiasm and people have really warmed to our approach. As with every customer facing business it’s how our customers perceive us and spread the word that really counts. In only our second year of trading we came out top in The Estate Agency Ombudsman survey. This was an entirely independent and unrehearsed result unlike other paid for services which estate agents often use. ‘said Max.
Since then Maxwell Hodgson have gone from strength to strength, being selected in 2013 as Wetherby’s leading independent estate agent by Relocation Agent Network.
With an invitation only membership, each member is handpicked after thorough checks, including mystery shopping basing its criteria on
quality of service, local knowledge and professionalism amongst others.
Director Max Hodgson, said: "Being a member of the Network provides us, and our customers, with a host of benefits not previously available to us, such as national coverage. Through networking with other members, we can also offer expanded services for both buyers and sellers in Wetherby."
A key additional benefit of Network membership for both agents and their
customers is the association with Cartus; the premier provider of global
relocation services. Relocation Agent Network members are Cartus’
preferred estate agency for corporate relocations, offering the potential that
many Network agents may also receive additional buyers as a result.

"We turned to Maxwell Hodgson after making the mistake of using an online 'agent'. We soon realised that the personal, face to face service and ongoing marketing of our property could never have been matched by the online model. The staff at Maxwell Hodgson held our hand every step of the way and their knowledge and expertise was second to none. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone selling their property. Save time and money and use a proper estate agent! "
