Following a disaster when using a town centre estate agent for a rental property I set on Martin Thorntons when a new tenant moved in. I found them very professional, competent and easy to deal with. A second rental property was also put into their hands. Have recommended them to a friend who is also now using their services for a rental property. Cannot recommend them too highly, pleasant and friendly.
After two years using two different estate agents to try and sell my house I came to Martin Thornton. Within the first two weeks of being with them I had already had more viewings than the previous year! Finally accepted an offer a few weeks later. Martin and the team couldn’t do enough for me and I’m so pleased I chose them ( wish I had chosen them earlier! ). Great service and helpful advice throughout. Now happy in our new home.
“Martin has acted on my behalf for the past 9 years in both buying and selling property. He is professional and provides good marketing, promotion and does the basic estate agency services very well but where he really excels is in negotiation. He has negotiated selling prices above my expectations and in one case when I was happy with an offer from a purchaser he negotiated a higher offer for me above the asking price!”
"I would like to say a big thank you to Martin and all his staff for all their help during our recent house sale. From the sign going up to the completion date took just about 8 weeks which was excellent. I felt that we were in safe hands and each time I contacted the office my questions and requests were dealt with very promptly and professionally. Dealing with Martin Thornton Estate Agents was a very positive experience and I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends.
I cannot praise the staff at Martin Thornton Estate Agents enough, I found then helpful and very professional throughout they keep me informed every step of the way with letting my house out. I Would highly recommend to anyone.
"Contemplated going with an online agent but after seeing Martin Thornton boards locally invited them round for a valuation. Valuation carried out by Martin himself who is very experienced and had a professional yet honest and personal approach. Has a great Huddersfield wide knowledge and was in my opinion bang on with the valuation which was confirmed by other agents also. Decided to go with them which after an initial call was all done within a few days and the house went on the market. Sale and viewings handled by Abigail who again is efficient and professional. The fact that they have an out of town location makes it really easy to pop in and check on progress or sign documents. Our house sold to the first couple that viewed it who were actually on their list of people who had registered an interest in similar properties so shows they review their enquiries regularly. Sale went through with no hicups. I've recommended them to loads of friends and associates since, one of which is just completing his sale through them. Overall really happy with the whole process facilitated by Martin Thornton and the team. As an independent estate agent I think they do really well and the personal tailored service shows. Thanks Martin, Abby and all the team."
"We have used Martin twice in the last 5 years in a challenging market and have found him to be a refreshing change to the stereotypical estate agent, helping us to downsize!"
"Thank you for all of your time and assistance in selling my house. You & your team have always worked so professionally. Thank you for being considerate, sensitive and patient with regard to my personal situation. I have already recommended your services to my friends and family!"
“Having deciding to put our house on the market working with Martin and the team our house was sold within 2 days. Their advice and support to total novices like us was excellent, always professional and informative. Would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of selling. We are happy in our new home all thanks to them. Fabulous!!”
Would not hesitate to recommend Martin Thornton Estate Agents. They are very friendly, proactive, professional and kept me informed every step of the way. Buying or selling I think they are great.
"We decided to move after living in the same house for 40 years and were not looking forward to the experience at all! Martin was recommended to us through friends and helped us find a great property in the area we had been looking at all whilst selling our house within 7 weeks. The experience was professional and stress-free throughout with Martin helping sort the conveyancing and even finding an excellent removal firm for us."
“Quick courtesy email Abigail just to say a massive thank you assisting Julie & I in the sale of Wrigley Court. You guys did a sterling job, credit to you.”
"Thank you for your expertise and professionalism with the sale of our house which went through seamlessly today."
"I have dealt with Mr Thornton for the past 25 years. In that time, he has taken care of three property sales and given great advice on new purchases including investment properties. I've found him to be friendly, honest and reliable, providing a great all-round service. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again."
I would recommend Martin, Abigail and the rest of the team, they were all very helpful and supportive throughout the sale of my property.
"I have known and worked with Martin for many years and trust his advice and judgement above any other in his business. Of all the estate agents I’ve dealt with his valuations always proved to be the most accurate. I find him honest and reliable but the best compliment I can pay is that he will tell you exactly how it is as opposed to telling you what you may want to hear, which is essential whether you are a vendor or purchaser."
"I just wanted to say thank you for dealing with our sale so brilliantly for us. You managed the whole process from start to finish and certainly put my mind at ease when things didn't feel like they were going our way!
Thanks so much."
"I've worked with Martin Thornton on more than one occasion and have found him to be a well presented businessman and a breath of fresh air in the estate agent industry. I'm looking forward to dealing with Martin Thornton in the very near future and wish him every success going forward."
Thank you so much for the great professional service that you all provided us through each stage of our house sale. We will certainly be recommending you to friends and family in the future! 10/10.
Can I thank you and your staff for the excellent and professional assistance in selling my house at the end of 2016. I had previously used a competitor Estate Agent who had in my view been un-proactive unlike yourselves, who gave me good advice, also keeping me in the loop at all times with emails and calls."
"I purchased my first house through Martin Thornton Estate Agents and as a first time buyer was truly terrified. Martin was very hands on, helping me negotiate on the price, arrange my conveyancing, sorting out my mortgage and even helping out with the removals!"
