Hodsons sold my house earlier on this year. From the start they have been professional and did everything they could to get the sale over the line. I was constantly kept informed of the progress and they were very quick to answer any questions that I had. It was touch and go towards the end as to whether or not the exchange would go through but they pulled out all stops to ensure that the buying solicitor had all they needed to exchange. They certainly had their clients interests at heart and did what they could to ensure it worked out. Thanks again, highly recommend their services, they are a great team.

We would like to give  a very big thank you to Donna Wright for the fantastic customer service and professional manner which she has delivered throughout or property sale.She had gone above and beyond to make sure the sale went through as smoothly as possible, giving us regular updates and chasing relevant information required.

Thank you again

Mr & Mrs Sharpe

We had the pleasure of having Donna assigned as the estate agent managing our house purchase. She’s professional, reliable and clearly very knowledgable about the process. She’s taken the stress out of the move for us and I’ve felt confident everything is in hand as she has checked in regularly and updated us with progress. She’s so approachable and because of how lovely she is we’ve been able to discuss our worries with her which she listened to and adapted to to ensure we were as stress free as possible. She would always return our calls in a timely manner too - Something so important that I have found not all estate agents do. I highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Hodsons for your property needs. We’ve just bought a house through them, and they have made the whole process easy and smooth. A special thanks to Louise who went above and beyond to help us which was much appreciated. Without the effort of Louise and her team I’m afraid our deal would not have been completed!

December 2020


Would highly recommend Hodsons. James and Louise in particular provided strong advice and service throughout the process to sell our house. The pictures and brochure were high quality. They were proactive throughout the process and available to answer any questions or concerns.

Mr Gilbert

Always very helpful with both buying and selling. Would not use any other estate agent 5****

James and Louise were helpful at really encouraging the solicitors on both sides of the transaction to make progress to conclude the sale. Proactive and professional at all stages of the sale process.

Matthew Hardy

James, Louise and the team could not have been more helpful and professional with our house move. We had a very difficult chain and there support was immense and much appreciated. No problem at all recommending Hodsons, first class. Thank you very much

Allan Brooke

Hodsons were simply brilliant. They had viewings lined up within two days of giving them the go ahead. James and his staff were extremely professional and very helpful. Every member of his team went the extra mile to help and support. I would NEVER go anywhere else.

I recommend Hodsons. they made me feel like part of their family and they looked after me all the way. If there was an award for Best Estate Agents I would be voting for Hodsons without hesitation.

September 2020

Mrs Shearon

We first used Hodsons Estate Agents some 23 years ago when selling our first home. We were very pleased with their service then. When it became necessary to sell my mother's former home we turned again to Hodsons because they were the most transparent about costs.

My family have been pleased with the service and expertise provided by James and his team.

We were kept informed on a regular basis about progress with sale visits etc, and despite the country being on lockdown they kept lines of communication open. We have no hesitation in recommending Hodsons to anyone looking for a reliable Estate Agent.

April 2020

Mrs Glover

Brilliant estate agent. Online ones are cheaper and seem a better option but in the long run a personal touch really helps getting a sale going through. I sold my property within 3 months from advertising to completion. Really professional and friendly made the whole process simple.

February 2020

Sammy Hutchinson

These guys at the Wakefield branch can not do enough for their tenants... always kind and friendly and ensure everything is done smoothly to support in moving into their properties. Repairs always done to a high standard and the houses they let are the highest standard. We have rented a property for 3 years and now going to be renting a new home with them for many years. I couldn’t recommend this company enough... thank you for making dreams come true.

January 2020


Hodsons provided an excellent service. James and Louise were fantastic at keeping us up to date with viewings, feedback and gave great customer service. Would highly recommend if thinking of selling your property.

January 2020

Mr and Mrs Smith

'I first met James Clarke when my mother's property was needed as security against Care Home costs. This was in September 2017. James was the only one of the three estate agents that I contacted who took the trouble to inspect the whole property thoroughly and then provide me with an appropriate estimate of the value of the property. 

When the time to sell the property eventually came I had no hesitation in appointing Hodsons as sole agents for the sale.

This is  where Louise then comes into the picture. She kept me fully appraised of the current situation by phone and email and both she and James organised the viewings with various potential buyers until the right one was found. From there every effort was made to bring the sale to a speedy conclusion. Living as I do in the London area you can understand how helpful it has been for me to be able to rely on such good service from professional people who know their area and can apply their expertise to full effect.

I therefore am glad to recommend James and Louise at Hodsons as the Estate Agent of choice.

January 2020

Peter Littlewood

Rare to find such an excellent agent who knows their business inside out. Very efficient and great communicators! Would thoroughly recommend.

December 2019



Over the last 3 years I have used Hodsons Estate Agents twice with selling houses and they have been nothing but professional and helpful in every way. I wouldn’t wish to use another Agent as when you’ve had the best you don’t need the rest!

Many thanks James, Louise and team for all your help.

December 2019

Sally Bowett

Hodsons Estate Agents have sold 2 houses for me in the last 2 years, one within 3 weeks and the other within a few days. On both occasions prices were realistic, potential purchasers were screened and appointments managed with feedback within 24 hours. The managing of the sales from offer through to completion was first class, not to mention the professional and personal support for a very sensitive sale. Hodsons also manage our rental property which has been an absolute breath of fresh air as they protect our investment and ensure legal compliancy as well as managing the day to day routine tasks.

In summary Hodsons offer an excellent service at a very competitive price and I would highly recommend every time.

August 2019

Elaine Bond

We would like to thank you all for your hard work during the last few months. We could not have asked for a more professional service. Your understanding, patience and perseverance meant such a lot to us, and the end result was positive for all concerned.

Keep up the good work!

Bob & Sue Atkinson

I would not hesitate to recommend Hodsons, they have great knowledge of the local area and assisted greatly in the selling process. When matters became complex between solicitors, James and Louise helped enormously to assist with resolutions. This was not of course their role however, they wasted no time ensuring that all parties (buyer, seller and solicitors) colluded to provide a timely resolution. In all honesty I do not know where we would have been without Hodsons and I am most grateful for all their time and effort. The involvement ensured a timely sale and I really can't thank them enough. Hodsons you have been an excellent team, well done to all of you.

July 2019

Kerry Slater-Lewis

I am over the moon with the help I received from the moment I put my offer in to purchase a property being sold by Hodsons. The estate agent, Donna was extremely helpful and understanding of my situation as a first time buyer. I had many questions and would often ring numerous times a week to ask questions and Donna would help in any way she could which I was really appreciative of. Thank you so much Donna for making this such a pleasant experience.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Hodson to family and friends. James Clarke did a superb job, he was attentive, professional and friendly.

We've bought and sold a lot of properties over the years and I can honestly say Hodsons were the best estate agents we have ever used.

We have moved house eight times during the last 45+ years, the most recent being in the summer of 2014. The service we received from Hodson’s must count amongst the most professional we have  experienced. We found all of the staff to be unfailingly friendly and courteous, prompt and dependable in responding to our enquiries and extremely knowledgeable in terms of the local market.  Our house was well presented and  sold quickly. Perhaps  most importantly, we were treated as individuals and kept informed at each stage in the process.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Hodsons to other potential house vendors.

April 2015

Mr & Mrs M — Wakefield

We first started using Hodsons approximately 15 years ago when we converted old office space into apartments in the centre of Wakefield. They quickly vetted applicants and let these premises. Since that time we have placed all our varied premises with them on full maintenance contracts. 

Their sales, vetting, inspections, cleaning and maintenance staff are very efficient and reliable. 

I can't recommend them highly enough.

April 2015

Joanne & Malcolm Bird

We have used Hodsons to manage our flat since 1997.  They have always offered a friendly and professional service, with sound advice when required.  They have achieved a continuity of staff that gives us confidence to rely on them, especially as we live some distance from West Yorkshire.

April 2015

John & Lyn Midgley

Hodson Estate Agents have let my house since late 1998 and have provided an exceptional service which is professional at all times with the appropriate advice and recommendations in order to ensure a swift letting of the property.  The time between lettings has been minimal and I have no hesitation in recommending them to other Parties seeking the services of a reliable and professional Property Letting Agent.

April 2015

Michael Price

Hodsons have managed our property for over 6 years, providing hassle-free, reliable management services with minimal time-investment from our side. This is a great asset to us as we can relax knowing our property is in good hands. In this period, the tenancy has changed very infrequently, further demonstrating Hodsons’ commitment to establishing and maintaining solid, long-term relationships with excellent tenants.

Liz Bennett

Hodsons have been letting my house for the last 4 years and have always found good tenants and have been pro active in finding new tenants without any gaps. They have always kept me informed of any issues and have arranged for them to be fixed at very competitive rates.

Richard Johnson

We have been using Hodsons since 2007 to manage our rental property in Wakefield. I have found them professional, helpful and they have always managed to find good tenants for us. They have also proved very resourceful and kept our property in very good condition, sourcing excellent local tradespeople for decorating and maintenance.

April 2015

Simon Harris

My experience of selling my parent’s deceased estate through Hodsons was first rate. James has his ‘finger on the pulse’ with respect to higher-value properties in the Wakefield area and he was very sensitive to the circumstances of my sale.

Their sales particulars did absolute justice to the quality of our family house, which I’m sure helped to sell it quickly.  James and his staff were professional and friendly throughout the selling process and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services.

April 2015

Andrew Hunt

I have used many agents over the last 10 years and the service Hodsons provides is second to none.

On top of that their staff are extremely helpful and their handling of tenants,landlords and administration is exceptional and goes beyond my expectation.

Mr Aziz

Hodsons recently handled the sale of a property for us.  All the staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them and they all went the extra mile to ensure that our property was sold as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Elizabeth Sallis

We chose Hodsons to find our tenants due to their quality of service. The brand of the company is very professional which is reflected in their service. We have always found them very helpful every time we speak to them. They helped us find the most suitable tenants for the properties. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Guy and Debbie

James, a big thank you for selling my house! Your team were fantastic and certainly put other ‘larger’ Wakefield based estate agents to shame. The level of customer care shown was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Hodson’s Estate Agents to other sellers.

April 2015

Munir Mamujee

~~We have used the services of Hodsons estate Agents over many years.  Initially this was a tenants of a property that we rented through Hodsons and always found any requirements dealt with in a professional and timely manner.  Since becoming a landlord the professional attitude has continued from the initial search for a suitable tenant through to the contract arrangements  and overseeing any works/repairs that need undertaking during the tenancy.  They have always asked prior to appointment of tradesmen and have a good selection of people who carry out any works.      

April 2015

Landlord Keith

Over the last 5 years we have been more than happy to entrust our portfolio of properties in the more than capable hands of Hodsons lettings. Not only have they let our properties with speed and efficiency, they have also managed them professionally and personally. The team at the Wakefield office are a pleasure to deal with, they tick all the boxes for us, friendly, polite, helpful, knowledgeable, quick to respond, and above all, professional. We have no hesitation in recommending Hodsons to anyone seeking to let their property as they are, in our opinion, the best lettings agents in the area.

Mr. Nicholls

We would both like to thank you and everyone at Hodsons for all your help. We chose Hodsons for your air of professionalism and honesty, we will gladly recommend you to friends and family.

Mrs Ibbotson

One thing we would like to point out is that Hodsons have been by far the most professional Company we have dealt with and that we have no hesitation in recommending your services.

Mr. Mainwaring

We initially looked at a house with Hodsons which wasn't exactly what we were looking for. James was aware of what we wanted  and contacted me when they took on a house which had previously been with another agent. I had missed this house on Rightmove and it had not been proposed by the other agent (despite looking at other properties with them), possibly as it was priced lower than others we were looking at. The house was perfect for us. Hodsons were very supportive throughout the sale. If James hadn't been aware of our search criteria we wouldn't have seen the house which met so many of our requirements.

Mrs Smalley
