I sold a property with Auction House in their February auction. Due to me contacting them late in the day my property only had 11 days marketing prior to the auction but James was still confident of getting me a good price and that he did. From requesting a valuation to exchange in 14 days at a very good price. Happy days!Lizzy
An excellent company. I would not hesitate to use their services in the future.Charlie
We had a large lot (18 apartments in one building) that we knew would be a challenge to sell at Auction as there would be a very limited number of prospective purchasers. The lot didn't sell at Auction but James pursued a bidder from the auction in the 3 weeks post auction and successfully negotiated a sale on auction terms and even achieved a completion within a week of exchange! James was "hands on" and proactive throughout the process to get this difficult sale resulting in a happy vendor!John G
We have recently sold my parents house through the Auction House in Leeds and found the service we received first class. My husband and I have been involved in property all our working lives and are both retired now, and can genuinely say the service is that which one used to expect 20 years ago but struggle to find these days. I found James Pank, helpful, well informed, willing to do the research and work, but also honest and straightforward. Ours was not an easy property to sell and local agents had singularly failed to achieve a single viewing. I honestly believe they got the best, reasonable price for our property, and would highly recommend them.Michelle B T
The staff at Auction House have been friendly and helpful throughout the selling process. I have never sold at auction before and was a little apprehensive, but at each stage, I was guided and kept fully informed. All my questions were dealt with efficiently and I would recommend the Auction House team to anyone.Mr W
From the moment I contacted Auction House, all my worries and fears were taken away from me. Having lost both my parents in 2015 and not wanting to get involved with any estate agents and the challenges this could bring, Chris and the team took over and handled everything from the photos through to the sale at the auction. I ended up with more than I had anticipated. Would highly recommend them and I will be using them when I come to sell my house in the not too distant future. Well done team.B. Stepowanyj
The whole team worked seamlessly to help my wife and myself get through the auction process. We dealt mainly with Chris and Mel but we spoke with and got a great of support from James, Rachael, Jacqui and others also. They know exactly what they are doing. No false hopes given, the valuation was fair and in the end a better than expected price was realised. Along with the colleagues at in-house conveyancer Gordon's LLP and the Manning Stainton Morley estate agents all working together to make the process as painless as possible from when we got the property on the market. I would highly recommend this team!First Class
Our property was severely damaged from the winter flooding and was to be sold stripped-out and dried, but not re-instated. This was quite a puzzle for the staff as they had not really dealt with such a problematic property and valuation and target market were difficult calls. Throughout the auction process, the staff could not have been more helpful, informed keen to keep us in-the-loop. It is great credit to all the team and their extended efforts that the property sold. We are so grateful.M and LD D
We have been dealing with Auction House Leeds for many years.
They are without doubt the most professional of organisations and will always go that one step further to achieve the desired result. We have used other auction houses in the past but always felt we were just "another lot"!! Not so with Auction House
We will be back
After a traumatic set of circumstances found me needing to sell a property which in my eyes, was going to be more than a headache dealing with Estate Agents, finding time for viewings and the endless list of tasks associated with going down that route, I stumbled on Auctionhouse after a desperate attempt of finding ways to sell. The rest is as follows:
Emailed Auctionhouse giving a brief explanation of my predicament in the morning, before mid-afternoon, I was called by them. A friendly, in depth discussion followed reference aspects of my needs, state of the property and so on. The very next day, after arrangements were made to view the vacant property (access etc) without the need for me to be present due to work commitments, I was informed of the valuation for Auction purposes, agreed totally with the advice given, within 36 hours, it was listed on the website.
My property was a late entry for the purpose of advertising, but despite that, three viewing dates were set up, all of which were carried out without the need for me to attend. After each viewing, I was contacted, informed of the number of viewers, suspected interest and kept up to date with any other developments.
Within weeks, the property was sold, reaching a far, far better outcome than I had ever imagined, what a result...............but not the only reason for writing this review, the main reason is the people at Auctionhouse that I dealt with. The complete understanding they gave to me because of my difficult circumstances, was both comforting and reassuring. They made everything as simple a process as they could. All my conversations with the outstanding staff in Horsforth, were recieved with a high degree of professional know how, compassion and above all, in a friendly, down-to-earth manor.
I truly would not hesitate to use them again should I need to.
