Why choose us to let your property?

Whether you are an experienced Landlord or just starting out, you rely on your agent to be an experienced professional with expertise in finding and retaining the best tenants available along with maximising the return on your investment.

Having been in business now for over 25 years, we have let and managed many properties, from the Ilkley end of the Wharfe Valley, through Otley, passing Bramhope and all the way into Leeds, with our West Park Office being ideally situated to easily cover areas such as Adel, West Park, Headingley, Horsforth, Cookridge, Chapel Allerton, Meanwood and Kirkstall etc.

The Lettings & Management side of the business is largely run by Michael Smale and his Wife Karen, with the support of a back office team. This approach keeps things simple and on a personal level which both clients and tenants prefer.

We have invested in the latest software to maintain accurate records and provide a secure payments system so that you can rest assured that your money is safe with Walker Smale, and to ring fence that further we are members of CMP (Client Money Protection). Our referencing partner RentProfile helps us process new tenancy applications swiftly and compliantly and we have received really positive feedback from tenants as to how efficient the system is.

At Walker Smale we do not look after hundreds of properties and mainly act for loyal clients, people recommended to us and of course new clients who see the benefits of a personal service rather than a corporate style approach.

So, if you have a property to let or are thinking of buying a property to let, and you feel we may be the kind of agent that you are looking for, please do get in touch with us - we would be delighted to help!
