Located by "The Cross" in the very centre of the picturesque village, our cottage branch "The Old Smithy" has the best situation for an estate agent in the village. Opposite the busy Village Bakery and The Fox Public House, we enjoy excellent footfall and always have plenty of people looking at the properties displayed in our windows. Our parking bay to the left of "The Old Smithy" as you look at it, means that it is also easy to call in and see us - or pop to the bakery or the fish and chip shop! We opened this branch in 2000 but both Michael Smale and Simon Walker have looked after clients in the village since the late 1980's. Simon Walker has been a resident of the village for many years and is well known for supporting local causes and village events.
Due to our excellent location and reputation we have sold and let all types of properties in Bramhope, Pool-in-Wharfedale, Cookridge, Otley, Arthington, Weeton & Huby, Rawdon, Yeadon, Guiseley and surrounding areas for many years. We can definitely be considered as experts as Simon and Michael have over 80 combined years of local estate agency experience. The Walker Smale Partnership has now been trading for over 25 years and our longevity in the business is testament to our reputation and enthusiastic approach to the service we provided for our clients.
At Walker Smale we truly understand that no matter the value of your property, it is most likely your largest asset and you'll likely be emotionally attached to it. Therefore at Walker Smale your sale will be handled by one, if not both of The Partners, Simon Walker and Michael Smale. This means that at each stage of the process (valuation, negotiations and sales progression) you are not only in the hands of the most experienced people in our business but also of any of our competitors! It is our belief, and this is confirmed by not only our clients but clients of other agents, that when you are selling your property you would much rather deal with one person rather than several, so we don't employ valuers, sales negotiators or sale progressers. Instead, Michael and Simon are supported by a small, dedicated team of people that even includes Simon's daughter Sarah and Michael's wife, Karen!
We love the fact that a great deal of our business comes from recommendation or loyal clients coming back to us, but new clients are always welcome! If you are looking for an agent that will provide you with honest, straight forward advice with your best interests at heart, then please get in touch.
