If you are thinking of selling your home or property, you can choose Walker Smale with confidence to be your agent, knowing that in addition to the two partners having over eight decades of combined estate agency experience, our business celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2021!

Our longevity in the industry is testament to our enthusiasm, reputation and enjoyment in what we do, and sets us apart from our competitors in every aspect of our service!

Whether your property is in or around one of the Wharfedale Towns of Ilkley or Otley, further down the Wharfe Valley around Bramhope and Pool-in-Wharfedale, or near to Leeds like Adel, West Park, Headingley or Horsforth and the surrounding suburbs, Walker Smale have you covered. Michael Smale and Simon Walker have over 80 combined years of experience selling property in these areas and so their knowledge is second to none!

At Walker Smale your sale will be handled personally by one or both of The Partners. We don’t employ valuers, sales negotiators or sale progressors, instead everything transactional is dealt with by Michael and Simon so you have the benefit of the most experienced people in the business looking after you. Michael and Simon have a dedicated team of people providing support to enable them to provide this level of service and feedback from our clients as well as buyers supports our approach.

Please take a look through our Guide to Selling, it may also prove useful to look at the Guide to Buying as well, but below is a brief summary of the process of getting your property on the market:

First Steps To Getting On The Market

  • Call us to book your FREE, no obligation valuation.
  • At our valuation appointment we will discuss all aspects of the selling or moving process, providing you with straightforward practical advice for your individual circumstances.
  • We will explain our service, fees and any associated costs for moving carefully.
  • Once you give us the “thumbs up” we will prepare your marketing material including a 3D Virtual Tour of the property.
  • We can organise an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) if required.
  • When everything is ready the property will “go live” to all of our registered applicants and then will be made available to the portals we use, Rightmove and OnTheMarket being the major ones.
