When we founded Maxwell Hodgson in 2007 our vision was to create a fresh new estate agency built on personal knowledgeable service, listening to and putting our clients needs first and foremost. Fast forward to today those basic values are still the mainstay of our business. We are passionate about property, the people we deal with and the beautiful area we work within. Community is important to us and we support the local schools, cancer charities and Wetherby rugby club. We are friendly and approachable and proud to be selling homes in some cases for clients for the 3rd or 4th time now and receive many recommendations.

Our experienced team are waiting to help, please give us a call or if it's easier you can email us tweet us or even message us on Facebook.

We also have a large office on High Street near the river so why not call in and see us. Call us old fashioned but we still love the personal approach.

We can't wait to work with you.

Wetherby Reviews

Dr and Mrs Hills - Bramham

Maxwell Hodgson should be celebrated for their outstanding customer service. We have moved house nine times and have never before experienced this quality of support and communication. Moving house can be such a stressful experience, but Kathryn and Max went over and beyond to ensure both ourselves and our buyer were always in the loop and were proactive in ensuring the process was as smooth and professional as it could be. We chose Maxwell Hodgson because of the service they gave us as buyers in the previous move and we have not been disappointed. We would never consider using a different estate agent in the future and we cannot recommend them enough to anyone reading this review. No other estate agent comes close.

Mr and Mrs Robinson - Wetherby

Maxwell Hodgson acted as the estate agent for a property that we were purchasing. We dealt with Kathryn, who was always professional, helpful, efficient and responsive. They went above and beyond, contacting those involved throughout the chain. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mr and Mrs O'Grady

Maxwell Hodgson Estate Agency were brilliant to deal with and we very quickly found a property through them. We cannot fault their professionalism and their commitment to their clients. They made finding a property a very easy and pleasurable experience We highly recommended them.

Ben and Emily

My partner and I recently bought our first home together using Maxwell Hodgson Estate Agents. From the start, Kathryn and Max have been absolutely phenomenal. The level of service we received was exceptional and very personalised. Throughout the process they have always been incredibly helpful, keeping us up to date and offering a lot of support and advice, this was especially useful to us as first time buyers. I couldn't recommend Maxwell Hodgson Estate Agents enough.

Mr H Millington - Clifford

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the way in which you have handled the sale from the first point of contact to the completion. Your professionalism, attention to detail, handling of the many enquiries and your negotiation skills, not to mention the copious updates during the lengthy and complex conveyancing process, removed a huge amount of stress that builds up during these moments. In a world where such qualities are increasingly lacking, your guidance and service was a breath of fresh air!

Mr and Mrs Tweddle - Spofforth

Excellent and professional service provided by Kathryn, Max and the team. From the start to the finish of our recent house sale Kathryn kept us up to date and made sure everything went smoothly . I would always use Maxwell Hodgson in the future and would not hesitate to recommend this Estate Agent.

Mrs L Clarkson - Tadcaster

Thank you so much to Max, Kathy and the team for your fantastic support in selling our property. Your attention to detail, professional approach and seamless co-ordination made, what could have been a tough time more than manageable. We're spreading the word how wonderful your services are!

Mr G Bell - Collingham

We used Max Hodgson to sell my Mother's house in 2019. Throughout the process they were very professional, but above all helpful and friendly. The service was first class and they kept us informed throughout the process and offered valuable advice when and where appropriate.

J Atkinson

I had a very old property to sell and there were complications which led to a protracted exchange of contracts. As an Architect, I have dealt with many Agents, and throughout this transaction the quality of service and advice from Max and his team was excellent and very professional.

A Speight - Aberford

We recently sold our property through Maxwell Hodgson. We had considered using an online agent and we are so glad that we didn't! We wouldn't have coped with the amount of work and without Maxwell Hodgson's expert advise. Specially, I cannot recommend Elise highly enough. She is a fantastic negotiator and she went the extra mile for us. I believe that the chain would have fallen through without her hard work.

Mr N - Stutton

Please thank the team and Elise in particular for all of her help in selling our property. It was a bit of a slog and Elise's persistence and patience as well as her cheerful manner and upbeat attitude kept us on track

Mr R - Wetherby

Cannot recommend them enough. Went above and beyond for us to make our move happen. Will always use again in the future.

Miss R - Wetherby

I can not recommend Elise at Maxwell Hodgson enough! She is absolutely amazing and goes above and beyond her role in every way. Having been stuck in a difficult chain and having had problems with solicitors, Elise has done her best to make everything as stress free as possible and taken on so much of the work herself when she didn't have to. I would recommend Maxwell Hodgson estate agents to anyone and would certainly be using them myself if I ever move again.

J Eccles - Bickerton

Bought a house listed with Maxwell Hodgson. Elise went above and beyond in helping us get everything right and kept us informed at every stage. Can't recommend highly enough. Refreshingly fantastic service in an estate agent.

Miss H - Collingham

.....We'd been burnt in the past with poor service in this industry and were considering listing our home with an online estate agent. We discovered that the reality of selling online was impersonal and lacking in proactivity so we decided to sell with Maxwell Hodgson - it was a great decision, would recommend them to everyone selling in the Wetherby area.

Mr and Mrs Eade - Wetherby

We selected Maxwell Hodgson from a shortlist of three agents to sell our house on Spofforth Hill in Wetherby and they sold it for the asking price within a week. Their approach was personal, planned and professional yet friendly and approachable. We valued their advice on staging the house and the use of professional photography.

Mr and Mrs Duffy - Boston Spa

Thank you for being calm and kind when I needed it! Charlotte is very adept at dealing with stressed clients!!

Mr and Mrs McDonald - Boston Spa

Thank you for all of your work and help with selling (and keeping our buyer!) our house. Your really did go the extra mile.

Alex - Collingham

Just a short note to thank you and your team for such great service and guidance in my property sale and property purchase advise. At all times Elise and Charlotte were professional and engaging and really made things easy for me.

Mr and Mrs H - Collingham

I can highly recommend Maxwell Hodgson of Wetherby. I found all their team extremely efficient and professional . I had regular contact with them over 20 months as a seller, and eventually as a buyer. It was particularly important to have direct contact with the firm's principal during all stages of what proved to be a stressful and protracted process. The team were very skilful at selling our house, and additionally doing their level best to smooth any problems....I can recommend them unreservedly.

Mr and Mrs H - Thorner

From start to finish a really professional, friendly service from everyone but especially Charlotte and Elise. We have recommended you to our neighbours and wish you every future success.

Mr and Mrs P - Thorner

....We had a very positive experience dealing with the staff at Maxwell Hodgson. What sets them apart from a lot of the other estate agents we had spoken to and dealt with, is the personal touch. Once our offer was accepted we continued to get a superb service from Elise and particularly Charlotte... She was extremely professional, polite and obliging and a real asset to the team at Maxwell Hodgson....We certainly have no desire to move any time soon...(!) but if we ever do we would certainly look to use the services of Maxwell Hodgson....

Barbara - Tockwith

...I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a highly professional, efficient operation in supporting their clients in selling or buying properties. The team have a perpetually sunny outlook as you soon as you enter their offices which demonstrates their confidence in a very competitive market to succeed on your behalf....

Miss Percy - Thorner

The team at Maxwell Hodgson were brilliant from start to finish. Putting the house on the market was easy, and they were proactive in getting viewings and providing helpful feedback. What really set them apart though was their approach. I felt they did their absolute best. not just to sell my house but to help me with my purchase as well. Would definitely recommend. Very impressed.

Gareth - Boston Spa

A quick easy sale, sound advice, quick replies, and prompt follow up. We could not have asked for more! Highly recomended
