Wetherby Reviews

Mr B - Wetherby

Having had a flat on the market without a successful sale for over two and a half years I engaged Maxwell Hodgson to act as agents in the spring of 2022. I immediately noticed an increase in the number of viewings and Max secured a buyer in September 2022. Throughout the relationship all my dealings with both Max and Kathryn were friendly, professional and reassuring. As the sale moved towards completion there was a potential problem. A quick call to Kathryn and within 10 minutes all was resolved and back on track. I can't recommend Maxwell Hodgson highly enough - and I have dealt with many Estate Agencies over the years having moved house around 15 times.

Mrs W - Wighill

Max and Kathryn Hodgson kept me entirely in the picture throughout the procedure. I have no hesitation in recommending them wholeheartedly.

Mrs W - Wetherby

Excellent service from start to finish with a difficult sale. Kathryn was exceptional with her persistence to see the sale completed.

Mr & Mrs W - Boston Spa

We have recently purchased a property with Maxwell Hodgson and we have been extremely impressed with their service. From the first call to book a viewing to the day of completion, they have been responsive, excellent communicators, approachable and efficient. Kathryn & Max always kept us updated with any progress and were on the ball with chasing solicitors which meant the dates which were set out at the beginning were stuck to. A potentially very stressful process went smoothly and without issue which we will be forever grateful for. We would highly recommend Maxwell Hodgson to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property in Wetherby and surrounding areas.

R Dutton - Wetherby

Thank you to Maxwell Hodgson (Kathryn and Max) for selling my mother's house. The process was very well managed from sales pack compilation, to viewings through to completion. From the point of offer to completion the end to end process only took 9 weeks, remarkable! A very professional and easy agent to work with, would highly recommend - many thanks

Charlotte and Amrik - Bramham

We had a very positive experience of selling our house with Max and Kathryn Hodgson. They're highly responsive, supportive, efficient, and were always on the ball with chasing and contacting solicitors and other EAs. Their advice on negotiating when we were buying our onward purchase was invaluable. And Kathryn really went above and beyond when things got complicated towards the end of our sale. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mr and Mrs Wallace - Bickerton

"This is the second time I’ve used Maxwell Hodgson to sell my property. They are a family run business who provide a bespoke service. Kathryn and Max offer caring, friendly and professional assistance. They go the extra mile. Even my viewers commented on how attentive they were. If you’re selling in the Wetherby and surrounding areas choose Maxwell Hodgson’s Estate Agents. You will be more than satisfied with the service."

Maxwell Hodgson Estate Agents were such a pleasure to deal with. Max has an extensive knowledge of the current market and this made selling my property as stress-free as possible.

A wonderful team and I can’t thank them enough!

Mrs R - Thorner

This is the second time I have used Maxwell Hodgson to handle the sale of my home. Once again I have been delighted with the efficient professional service I have received. I was kept fully informed throughout and really felt that they had my best interests at heart. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Maxwell Hodgson

Kathryn’s level of customer service is exceptional, extremely professional and friendly. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and we would not hesitate in recommending you to others.

Dr Dearden - Collingham

Selling one's house is always an emotional rollercoaster especially following bereavement. Maxwell Hodgson provide a perfect blend of sensitivity to a vendors circumstances and local knowledge, so vital when making procedural decisions. At every stage you will be graced with compassionate consideration, expert advice and timely communication. When constraints or difficulties arise you may relax in the certain knowledge that they will be managed openly and honestly through to resolution. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathryn and Max to act as agents for the sale of your property.

Kathryn & Max sold my cottage in less than a week & everything went smoothly & swiftly. I would highly recommend their professional & personal touch 100% plus nice to support a very well run family business.

Gill and George - Collingham

Very supportive and helpful advice throughout. We felt in safe and experienced hands. Max and Kathryn were in constant communication with us, chivvying and guiding us to the next stage. When we next sell, we’ll definitely line them up to help!

Mr and Mrs P - Wetherby

We received first class service and support from Maxwell Hodgson Estate Agents throughout the buying process. Kathryn was always cheerful and positive. Our move was a 'long-distance' move, from Berkshire, which made visits difficult. However, Kathryn was proactive in checking the status of the chain, keeping us informed at every step and in finding ways of moving things along. We would heartily recommend Maxwell Hodgson to any prospective buyers or sellers.

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.

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....

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....

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

Bev - Thorner

Can't fault them. Max, Elise and Kathryn guided me through the difficult process of selling my parents' house with efficiency and understanding. They kept me up to date all the way and kept the whole chain moving throughout the sale. A personal and highly effective service.

Kenny - Harrogate

Team Maxwell Hodgson were brilliant through out a very protracted and difficult sale of my house in Collingham. Regular contact and sound advice in difficult waters eased the stress levels and ultimately lead to a completed sale and a very happy customer. I would recommend every one of them, as a team they were outstanding. Kenny from Harrogate

Bullfinch - Wetherby

Max was an excellent ambassador for the company providing me with clear advice and personal attention. He responded promptly and was willing to go the extra mile. His staff, too, are very helpful, friendly and do all they can to make a stressful time run smoothly.

Mrs Darcy - Boston Spa

Thank you for all your help selling our property. A very professional and knowledgeable team who went the extra mile to make sure that everything ran smoothly.

Mr and Mrs Wilson - Bramham

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!

Mr and Mrs T Sage

I would like to say a huge thank you, to you, Max and Catherine for the excellent support we received throughout the sale process. Both my wife and really appreciate the effort that you all went to on our behalf and we cannot disappear without giving credit where credit is due and to confirm we are pleased we chose Maxwell Hodgson as our agents. From our perspective a first class service and were we to sell again in Wetherby (and/or surrounding area) we would have no hesitation in choosing Hodgson’s as our agent again.

Mr and Mrs Richardson - Wetherby

Thank you for selling our house. You have been so supportive and helpful every step of the way. It was such a smooth process from start to finish and we can't thank you enough.

Dr B - Thorner

Maxwell Hodgson managed both our sale and our purchase and were excellent- being very communicative and responsive and chasing all along the chain to ensure all went smoothly on the day. I would be happy to recommend their services.

B and J Carmichael

Thank you all so much for all your help with the sale of our house. Throughout the whole process you have been so professional but also supportive along the way. We can't recommend you highly enough and will definately be back in touch if needing to sell in the future.
