Buying a property can be complex and time consuming. A successful outcome relies upon good management by seasoned professionals along with excellent communication between all parties. We hope this guide helps a little along the way.

Walker Smale covers the whole of North Leeds and Wharfedale. So, if you are looking for a property in Headingley or West Park on the doorstep of Leeds or something further out near Ilkley or Otley, then we would be delighted to help you.

When working with Walker Smale you will no doubt find our approach a little different from our competitors. The estate agents are Michael Smale and Simon Walker, who are supported by a small but dedicated team. We do not employ sales negotiators or sales progressors and so any transactional discussions or negotiations will be handled by Michael or Simon. We have received excellent feedback from clients, as well as buyers, that they prefer this approach as opposed to having to deal with several different people along their journey.

Please be considerate when contacting our offices. Due to our “hands on” and thorough approach, we can all be engaged with detailed conversations on the phone or looking after people in the branch at busy times. We have a great phone service which, if we can’t “pick up”, will allow you plenty of time to leave a clear message instead of re-dialling - help us to help you!

Overall, whilst our service is geared to provide the best outcome for our clients, we also want to help to make your purchase a smooth one. Perhaps, if you move again, you may be our client next time!
