J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Wed 31st , 11:40 am,  Dear Claire I spoke to one of your bosses last night just to let the office know that we had finally exchanged on both properties at 5pm yesterday! As you can imagine, this was a great relief after a very stressful fortnight. Fortunately we were able to re-book our removal men and now are rushing around like maniacs to be out this house by lunchtime tomorrow.  We may well see you when we pick up the keys to Melrose but if not I just wanted to thank you very much for your invaluable assistance throughout the process. I was telling your boss how impressed we had been with your service and she said could we jot that down in an email so I would be very grateful if you could pass this on. The professionalism of all those we have dealt with at your office but particularly yourself has been outstanding and has certainly contributed to making a very difficult process easier and smoother than it would otherwise have been.  We would definitely highly recommend Hoppers estate agents to anyone looking for this service in your area (and that is more than can be said for certain Wetherby estate agents we...

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Wed 16th, 3:41 pm, from Vicki Thompson. HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! Dear Sir/Madam Yesterday one of your members of staff was kind enough to visit my home, as referred to above, and carry out a valuation. I’m afraid I cannot remember his name but he was young, thoroughly professional and extremely efficient as he went about his business (that could be any male member of our staff I hear you proclaim!). He mentioned that he would compile his report and post it to me, hopefully yesterday afternoon. The problem is that I am currently in Lincoln where I remain until Friday of this week. I was therefore wondering if it might be possible to e-mail me a copy of his report to anthonyhennigan@btinternet.com? At the moment, based on the individual who visited my home, I remain most impressed with your company Thank you, in anticipation. I must add that the young man in question was none other than Our Matt !! Thank you Liz c J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire
Thoroughly professional and extremely efficient !


J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Tue 29th , 4:41 pm, from Vicki Thompson. “Brilliant news, just heard from Scotts ” .  “I would like to thank you all for your help in various ways. I know we are paying you but I have to say that we have really appreciated the kind personal touches that make all the difference. It has been a bit confusing at times who to contact, and there has been the odd hiccup, but we feel that the local, knowledgeable service we have had has been excellent and we would not go anywhere else if we had to sell again in the area. Everyone has had different ways of helping, Vicki who persuaded me to hold my nerve and not go to auction, Sarah who leant on me to do the place up and getting it clean (sorry about the paintwork!) and Laura who negotiated a fair deal with the repairs, and all of you for the general service and especially for keeping me in touch – so important when I am in the next dale and have to let my sisters know what’s going on. In other words, thanks! kind regards Peter J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Tue 15th Oct, 12:26 pm, from Vicki Thompson. WELL DONE CLAIRE AND TEAM!!! Dear Vicki, Many thanks for your email. We are pleased to say that we have now found a property we wish to purchase, and our offer has been accepted by the vendors, so we will no longer require further mailings . We would like to take the opportunity to thank you – and especially Clare Marwood, who dealt so swiftly with the sale of “Allaker” in exemplary fashion – for your helpful, courteous and very efficient service over recent months. Although we have eventually found a property through another agent, we would certainly recommend Hopper & Co to anyone considering selling or buying; your approach and communication has been second to none – and a good deal better than most! With best wishes to all the staff, Roz and Kit Norris J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Mon 11th Nov, 10:00 am, from Emma Henderson. We just wanted to say thank you , especially to Emma and Brian, for taking the time to research and show us around several properties in and around Bentham on Friday, 1st. November. As a result we have been better able to visualise what we are looking for, even if we haven`t found it yet. 32 Millholme Drive perhaps came fairly close but as you know, we didn`t really like the frontage. If any other properties which you think may suit us come on to the market, we would be grateful if you could send us details. Best regards, Hilary and Martin Walters. J.R.

Fri 12th April 2013 FAO Liz I have recently been house hunting in the Yorkshire Dales and have visited many estate agents in a bid to find my ideal property. I am becoming a bit of an expert! Without doubt the help and advice given by the staff in your Leyburn branch is second to none. They not only spent time and effort advising on properties but also guided me to locations which they thought I would like. They know the properties they are selling very well and introduced me to places i would not previously considerd. Without doubt they made the process a pleasurable experience and are to be congratulated for their professionalism With thanks and best wishes Christina Sinfield Lichfield Staffordshire J.R.

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Tue 3rd Sep, 11:25 am, from Sarah Lambert. Big Pat on the back for everyone!!!!! keep up the good work xx Dear All at Hoppers, Mike and I came into your office in May to request details of properties for sale. We had two viewings and were ‘smitten’ by Laurel House at West Burton. We know that there are offers in on this property – and we can do no more than hope our house in France sells very soon…… However, that is not the reason for this email – we just wanted to say that we have been so impressed by the service and attention you have given to us. We have constantly been informed on Laurel House and on other properties within our price range. We did register with several other estate agents during our trip in May – but your agency is the only one which has been in contact – and for that, we would like to thank you. It is no wonder that you have such a good, reliable local reputation! With kind regards to all Laurie & Mike H J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Fri 8th Nov, 3:56 pm, from Matt Alexander. Well done to everyone involved in this: Good afternoon Matt I have had confirmation from Sarah Bolton at Premier Property lawyers, and from yourself, that we have successfully completed the sale of 5 L and Y to Steve and Sue F, and I have just popped round to hand over the remaining key set to the Fosters personally. You warned us when we first met that property sales were somewhat sluggish, and you mentioned a rightmove average for the area of 80 weeks to sell, with Hopper’s being somewhat better. It is therefore quite astonishing to be completing so quickly after asking you to sell our house. I did want to place on record sincere thanks from Moira and myself for the superb efforts that you have made on our behalf. In particular I know that you pro actively sought buyers, and marketed the house very positively. You described our house as “best in class” – but it remains the case that much is down to your efforts. I recall in particular emails from you on more than one sunday!, I also remember your determined efforts to act as a very engaged go-between, and general “chivvy – er... J.R.

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire TESTIMONIAL Sarah Lambert – Negotiator J R Hopper Estate Agents Sincere person whom always displays techniques of negotiation to the highest level of discretion and professionalism, be it in a Solicitor’s office or vendor’s home.    Able to diffuse a scenario when perhaps a sale could be lost due to misunderstanding of communication be it on the telephone, email or Surveyor’s Reports .   Rare personality.  Would put her vendor and purchaser first beyond the normal office hours. Would then lock the office up whilst apologising on the mobile to the child-minder for being late but “just had to help my client!” Always there!!  Whether absent from desk due to work, illness, holiday or attending function in London.  “I shall pick up your voice mail on the train home, excluding the tunnels.”     Happy personality thus giving the recipient of her conversations the feeling that everything is positive and that one must never give up in a crisis.      Listens attentively and able to extract speedily the necessary facts that the highly proficient  Negotiator so requires to ensure the ease of the sale and purchase transaction.       Astonishing level of understanding and in a truly caring manner.  This probably stems from the Yorkshire family unit and close community that Sarah Lambert has been surrounded by throughout her life.  Her...

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire A 5-star review by ‘Suzanne and Chris Mitchell’ 15/8/2012 Branch: Leyburn       Would you use the agent again? Yes We were delighted with the service from Hoppers which was infinitely superior to any of the other agents we approached in this area. Our advisor was Elizabeth Guy and she was excellent. She listened to our brief and took a lot of time and trouble to find the right property for us. She was very personable and easy to do business with. We had some specific issues which arose with the sellers and she worked really hard to help resolve these. All in all, a very good experience and we would thoroughly recommend Hoppers and Elizabeth.

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Subject: 4 Hargill Close Redmire .I collected the keys of this property on Saturday having completed the purchase. I would just like to put in a good word for your colleagues for the way in which they handled the whole transaction. I know you are working for the vendor but being as helpful as they were to the purchaser makes good business sense too. This is the 8th property I have bought in the last 10 years and as a buying “experience” this was streets ahead of the other agents I have encountered. When the time comes to sell, you will be the first name on my list.  Thank you all again George Robson J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Above all, we are so glad we went with your firm as the two others we invited along had placed a value of £20-£25,000 below your recommended asking price and that which was actually achieved! Your slightly higher commission charge was well earned. Nor would they have provided anything like your level of customer service for househunters with plenty of friendly staff for weekend viewings and an office open in Leyburn and Hawes. We also trusted your advice on the offers received and your knowledge of the potential buyers’ circumstances, which has meant the sale has proceeded on schedule in less than 2 months since giving you our instructions. Please convey our sincere thanks to all your team involved. Best Regards Graham and Carol Banks J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire

J.R. Hopper & Co - Estate Agents In Yorkshire Dear Brian We would like to thank you and your team for handling the sale of our property so expeditiously. We never thought it would happen so quickly and smoothly, particularly given the poor state of the cottage following the last tenant’s departure and what we believed was a poor current housing market. Right from the start when we asked for a visit and valuation from you at a specific time, through to the drafting and publicising of the sales particulars, organising viewings and handling the several offers received we have been greatly impressed with your prompt, efficient and reliable service.
