December 2023 – Pete & Sam (Windermere)

“We have been looking for our permanent home in the Lakes since 2019 and registered with Hackney & Leigh in the early days of our quest. Of all the many agents in Cumbria we have had dealings with (there are many !) the H & L Windermere team have without doubt been the most helpful, friendly, reliable and consistent in communicating both the market, and the ins & outs of buying our ‘forever’ home. When we finally were on our way with an accepted offer, the team were always available to assist on phone or email, always gave a response to queries and were excellent and transparent at handling the sometimes protracted dialogue between ourselves and the vendors. Also going the extra mile to help us with following up snags and, even after we had moved in but were away, helping to notify us when snow damaged some trees on our property. To the Windermere team, particularly Sonia, Nicole and Charlie, with whom we exchanged many messages, thank you very much, we really appreciate it.”

May 2021 – Wendy & Alan Lewis (Grange-Over-Sands)

“We have just completed on a property and wanted to say a big thank you to Mark and Tracy who have been so efficient and friendly during the whole process. It was very reassuring to know that they were happy to help in any way they could, particularly in keeping us informed at what stage the vendors solicitor was at and also acting as a go between if we had any questions to ask the vendor.”

April 2021 -Kate (Kendal)

“I just wanted to say a big thank you to you personally [Elaine] and to all your team on working with me to secure the property I recently bought as I know I was quite demanding at times, asking for second visits and chasing solicitors etc! Always professional and helpful at every stage and for it to go through in around 6 weeks is as much as I could have ever asked for and it was all  made possible by your prompt assistance at every stage..

Its not the first and will not be my last positive experience with such a great team. I would definitely recommend Hackney & Leigh when buying or renting a property.”

April 2021 – Anita and Robert (Windermere)

Your calm, friendly, professionalism and advice has been much appreciated, as has your efficient attention to all aspects of the business, enabling such a speedy and satisfactory outcome.”

April 2021 – Stuart Robinson (Penrith)

“Moving my property to Hackney and Leigh after a not so smooth experience with a different agent was by far the best decision. The whole process was professional and reassuring. If I sell in the future, I would approach Hackney & Leigh straight away. Estate agents have not always had the best reputation but Hackney & Leigh are a great example of how an agent should be.”

April 2021 – Mrs Shannon (Windermere)

“Dear Mike, Sonia and Tina, having just completed on the property, I would like to thank you all very much for your help and support. Mike came to take a look at the beginning of the second lockdown and you managed to complete at the easing of the current one – no mean feat with social distancing, working from home and the office closed. But always a pleasure to speak on the phone. The time you take to help and reassure are very much appreciated. Should there be a third time I need your help, I won’t hesitate to contact you!”

April 2021 – Ms Kenyon (Windermere)

“Fab thanks Sonia and thank you to you and all of the team for your help over the past few months – you’ve all been brilliant.”

March 2021 – John Goodman (Ambleside)

March 2021 – Jean Sibson  (Keswick)

“I’d like to thank you and your team for your excellent service on the sale of our property. From start to finish the help and advice was greatly appreciated. We would certainly recommend you, your team and your company to anyone wishing to sell a property in the future.”

March 2021 – Stephen & Trish Winterbottom (Keswick)

“When I contacted all the local agencies your very positive telephone response encouraged us to choose Hackney and Leigh initially to discuss our property sale. After your visit to our home we were convinced you were the right choice for us and so it has proved. A very professional property specification was drawn up and your in-house photographer certainly knew how to highlight the best features of our home. Such was your attention to detail that an acceptable purchase offer was made and accepted within days. Luck? I don’t think so. Clearly you know and are in touch with the market and I think that is why you achieved our early sale and your pricing was pitched absolutely spot on. Moving home in our retirement years has not been something I would like to repeat in a hurry but at least you made the estate agency side of things easy. We can’t thank you enough. ”

March 2021 – Alyson Davies (Keswick)

“I have appreciated being able to contact you with relative ease by phone and email and for your proactivity in communicating with solicitors, the purchasers and myself. I was kept informed throughout on progress with the sale. I would be happy to recommend Hackney & Leigh to manage a property sale in the Keswick area. Thanks again for overseeing a successful sale.”

March 2021 – Jeff and Kay (Kendal Lettings)

“My wife and I are in the process of moving as I write this. I contacted Hackney & Leigh with interest of renting a certain property. Our scenario was a little different because we are coming home after working in other countries, vice viewing within the country. If you throw COVID on top of that with all of its challenges, the move, viewings, etc…..everything becomes exponentially more difficult.

I have nothing but the most positive things to say about how Hannah and Samantha at the Kendal office helped us to unfold our story. The team was extremely proficient at keeping us updated, every step of the way, with our let.

Using any and all available resources to conduct our business during these difficult times was navigated with such professionalism and timeliness, it begs one to consider why everyone doesn’t conduct business this way….

My wife and I may consider purchasing a house down the road and Hackney & Leigh will be the first office we enquire to, due to the absolute wonderful handling of our situation….by the letting team.

Samantha and Hannah, Thank you again for an excellent experience!!!!”

March 2021 – Simon Myers (Keswick)

“Thank you for the time and care in selling the house for us. I was impressed with the personal and approachable level of service from Nick and Dan. You didn’t put any pressure on us and we would definitely recommend you.”

March 2021 – Susan Popham

“I would like to thank you so much for your weekly property updates – they are very informative, interesting and helpful. Of all the Estate Agents we have left our details with, you are the only one contacting us direct.  As we are still looking for a property this is really useful … and the updates on what is happening (with a property angle) is really helpful.”

March 2021 – Lynne Preston (Windermere)

“Many thanks Mike for all the hard work done by your staff selling our property, especially Tina who has been a star.”

March 2021 – Kenneth White (Windermere)

February 2021 – David Skinner (Ambleside)

“Delivered a great professional service. We would highly recommend!”

February 2021 – Keith and Maggie Bell (Ambleside)

“The team at Hackney and Leigh are outstanding. Selling a property can be stressful, but the friendly professionalism of everyone we encountered in the Ambleside branch made the process as straightforward as possible. All of our questions and concerns were dealt with promptly and efficiently and we were given good advice at every stage. We have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Hackney and Leigh. ”

January 2021 – Simon & Marcela Jackson  (Keswick)

“Hackney & Leigh are very professional and our experience was first rate from start to finish. Communication was excellent. We were listened to and always understood what was happening. This removed a great deal of anxiety. Both Nick and Dan are readily available, approachable and very supportive. We felt that they spent time to get to know us and at no point were we rushed into making snap decisions. This is the personalised approach we wanted. We valued their honesty and trusted their advice. We would recommend Hackney & Leigh to anyone who would be looking for a similar experience.”

January 2021 – Bob & Helen Lewin (Keswick)

“Since putting our house sale in the hands of Nick at Hackney & Leigh, Keswick, we have felt happy and at ease. Nick and Dan have always kept us informed and been professional and courteous in all of their communications.  It has been a pleasure in dealing with them and we would not hesitate to recommend the team at Hackney & Leigh.”

December 2020 – Sara and Ali (Kendal)

“Thank you so much for your excellent and professional service. We really appreciate all you have done to sell our house. Everyone we have come into contact with at Hackney & Leigh has provided great customer service. Thank you again and very best wishes to you all. Stay Safe.”

December 2020 – Alison Story (Kendal)

Merry Christmas 🎅”

December 2020 – Jonathan Vickers  (Keswick)

“I would recommend Hackney & Leigh as estate agents. I was initially impressed by your speed of response, and subsequently by the time and professionalism that you devoted to my sale and purchase. I always found that I could get in touch with someone – a service which extended outside office hours on occasions. I believed that you had the expertise, and the willingness to help, which gave me the confidence to rely on you. I would also point out that you delivered a better price for my sale than other agents had indicated.”

December 2020 – Richard Scott  (Keswick)

“I would like to thank Nick and Dan for all their hard work in marketing High House. I would be very happy to use your service again and will recommend you as Estate Agents to friends. We were particularly impressed with the high standard of photography and marketing materials, they really showed our property in the very best light. I was also very pleased with the level of information you provided as the sale progressed and the fact that you were personally always available to promptly answer our questions, offer advice and discuss the best way forward.”

December 2020 – Jack & Daisy  (Keswick)

“We couldn’t have been more impressed with Nick and Dan’s service while selling our flat. This was our first experience selling a property and the bar has been set very high. Right from the valuation stage of the process they were head and shoulders above other estate agents in Keswick. The photography and video created by Diana was very impressive, even our friends and family commented on how beautiful she’d made our property look! We wouldn’t hesitate to use Hackney and Leigh again in the future.”

December 2020 – Barry Stoddard  (Keswick)

“Thank you and your team so much for your excellent, professional and friendly service in the marketing and selling of Oakbeck. You have always been available at all times and your advice has always been helpful and much appreciated. I have when the opportunity has arisen with neighbours mentioned how impressed I have been with the Hackney and Leigh approach. It is a reflection of your service that I see so many of the for sale properties in the area with Hackney and Leigh boards. Thank you once again.

December 2020 – Lynn Thomas  (Ambleside)

“Wishing you all a lovely Christmas. Thank you for all your hard work that means I am in my Ambleside home this Xmas!

December 2020 – Liz Usedon  (Ambleside)

“Could not fault anything right from the beginning to the end of the process of selling my property. Hackney and Leigh took care of everything! Very Professional would highly recommend! Thank you!

November 2020 – Michaela and Kev (Carnforth)

“Thank you so much for your help. I’d also like to say a big thank you for the sale and purchase of our property. From the first contact you have all been so helpful and quick to respond to queries, as well as friendly and professional. It has made things much easier for us and made things less stressful. Not to mention thanks to Sarah for telling us about the property that was coming for sale. Who knew a house swap would really work. We are so excited for the future in our new family home and although we don’t want to move for a very long time, we would definitely want to use your office, if we did. Thanks again for all your help”

November 2020 – Andy  (Grange-Over-Sands)

November 2020 – Mr Foster  (Ambleside)

“Many thanks to all of you there, particularly David, Tonia and Natalie for all your help in delivering this excellent result for us. The service we have received from H&L has been, as ever, first class and we look forward to working with you again in the future (although we’ve sold all our Ambleside properties now!)

November 2020 – Barbara (Ambleside)

“I would like to recommend and thank David, Tonia and Natalie in the Ambleside Office for their professionalism, help and advice. Right from the start they kept me informed every step of the way, often going over and above what was expected of them. Nothing was too much trouble. Viewings came in thick and fast, with my iPad continually “pinging” once the advert went live. The subsequent reports on those viewings were relayed to me immediately. All this ensured the property attracted a buyer who then went on to complete once the necessary checks were completed.

November 2020 – Geoff Isherwood (Ambleside)

“David Capps and his team at the Ambleside office of Hackney & Leigh have just seen through to the end a challenging sale on behalf of me and my co-trustee of a property in a deceased estate. They were very thorough, informative and reliable. I fully recommend them as very competent and a well-organised firm of agents.

November 2020 – Gabrielle Hurley (Ambleside)

“Really fantastic service from Hackney & Leigh in Ambleside. All of the stress was taken out of the process by such a professional service. Thank you.

November 2020 – Cathy Meunier  (Keswick)

“We weren’t looking forward to all the traumas of selling a house but from our first meeting with Nick we could see that the process was going to be much easier and less stressful than we had anticipated, and we had a good feeling that we were working with someone we could trust.

We appreciated Nick’s skill in achieving the best outcome for both us and for the buyer. Nick and Dan made everything easy for us, giving us honest, straight forward, and professional advice, but never pressurising us.

Having successfully sold our house in Keswick through Hackney and Leigh, we would not hesitate to use them again, and will continue to recommend them to anyone looking to sell a property in this area.

November 2020 – Jaed & Cath Stoddart (Keswick)

It has been said that buying and selling property can be one of the most stressful experiences that you can undergo, so throw a pandemic on top and you might wonder if it is even worth it. At the start of the pandemic we found ourselves facing the uncomfortable decision to move country and having noticed a Sold sales board down the road thought that we would make contact with Hackney and Leigh and it was the best decision we ever made. From first contact, Nick won our trust and faith with his honest, calm and can do approach. Nick listened to us, our thoughts and price aspirations for our much loved home, our reasons and time frames for selling and put together a sales and marketing appraisal that in the end got us the perfect result, a sale to an equally motivated buyer at full asking price.  Nick is clearly a very experienced Sales Manager and has extensive knowledge of sales in the Lake District, wider trends and influences and how to maximise opportunities. He was able to bring his local knowledge of buyers and trends so that our appraisal was spot on. Nick brought together the wonderful team from Hackney and Leigh to put together superb marketing material and promoted our property with excellent effect. Without his expertise I honestly believe that we would not have achieved the sale price we wanted. Nick was on hand to guide us all the way through the sales process, from our agreed offer, helping us with problems with solicitors, offering creative solutions when our chain stalled and generally just staying at the forefront of the process.  In short, Nick’s honest, open and straightforward approach made our sale a positive experience, even in this challenging time. We cannot thank Nick, and the whole Hackney Leigh Keswick team enough and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell.

October 2020 – John and Sally Walker (Penrith)

“We would just like to say how impressed we were with Nick and his team from Hackney and Leigh. From the initial meeting to survey and value our property, there was never any pressure and everything was carried out with the highest standards of competence and professionalism. The marketing was first class, with Diana doing a fantastic job of photographing the property.
We received several offers within days and were kept updated and advised at every step to completion. We have sold many properties throughout the UK in the past and have no hesitation in saying that Hackney and Leigh have been the best agent we have ever used, by far. We have already recommended them to friends and family and will continue to do so.”

October 2020 – Gillian Lane (Ambleside)

“Thank you to all the team at Hackney & Leigh for the successful sale of our property. David, Tonia & Natalie were the ultimate professionals. Despite all the Covid restrictions they were able to get our home onto the market quickly and efficiently and viewings came in at a rapid rate. Less than 10 weeks from going on the market to completion of sale was amazing. Thanks again.”

October 2020 – Bob & Ann Fairfoot (Keswick)

“I am pleased to say we would have no hesitation in recommending you as an estate agent, you achieved a higher price than we had expected, a sale within a day or so and followed the deal through to completion in very testing immediate pre Covid times, no one could have asked for more! ”

October 2020 – Tony & Sue Melling (Keswick)

“Gave good advice on selling our property , and achievable value , kept us informed at every step of the sales process ( ups and downs ) achieved the sale we required in a quick and efficient time ,would highly recommend Nick & Dan at the Keswick office .”

October 2020 – Hugh Dove (Keswick)

“The sale process was handled smoothly and professionally from start to finish, from the initial survey and valuation through to completion. Viewings were arranged at convenient times and I was given regular updates. Selling a home and moving is always stressful but having the support of a good estate agent can ease the pressure of at least one element of the process. I would certainly recommend Hackney & Leigh to anyone wishing to sell a property in the Keswick area – in fact I already have done! ”

October 2020 – Nigel & Karen Wilkinson (Keswick)

“From the moment we engaged with Nick & his team from Hackney & Leigh to view our house in Keswick, we can only say the service has been to the highest standard of professionalism, attention to detail and commitment to obtaining the best possible conditions for us. The initial valuation, presentation, marketing and then the support we received following visits from prospective buyers was simply the ‘best of the best’ service we have ever received. We have sold houses in the UK as well as overseas, and have never received such quality of service as provided by the team. It was simply first class. We have already recommended Hackney & Leigh as estate agents to other sellers in the area and would not hesitate to do so again. ”

October 2020 – Ian Hargrave (Keswick)

“I engaged Hackney & Leigh at the end of May 2020 after failure from a previous agent. I found Nick Elgey and his team to be incredibly professional in their approach. While marketing my house they understood the market, its pricing and pitfalls of the types of buyer who might be looking to my property. The promotional photography was superior, as well as the video. I secured 3 offers within the first week of being on the market. When the first buyer fell through after 3 weeks of offer (they offered while on holiday and then changed their mind), H&L had already kept the second option warm and we were able to secure and complete with them. During the survey, mortgage approval process for the buyer and exchange and completion, they were incredibly sensible and mature in the advice given to both myself and the buyer. This enabled us to complete within 3 months which is quite an achievement in these very uncertain times.
Having bought and sold through different agents in the Keswick area over the last 4 years, I have found H&L to be a cut above the other agents in their knowledge, advice and professional service. I would, and have already, recommended H&L to any potential vendor in the area.”

October 2020 – Michael and Val  (Grange-Over-Sands)

“We got there in the end. We would just like to say thankyou for the way you and your team handled the sale of our property and we would not hesitate to recommend you to others.”

Anne-Marie, even calling us from home on a Sunday morning to update us! Keira is so wonderful too, showing great initiative and always making the relevant enquiries in an attempt to gain as much information as is possible regarding the sale of our home.
