“Hi Peter, Just a thank you to say what a great service your team and you of course have provided. The process was so simple and your attention to detail was professional. I will as have done in the past recommend you without hesitation. Best Regards ”


“I have called on Helen twice in the last couple of months to complete a ‘Homebuyers Report and Valuation’ for me on two separate properties. On the first occasion, I contacted Helen just before the Christmas holidays and she was very helpful and put everything in place to complete the survey on the first working day of 2022. On the second occasion, she was similarly prompt and completed the survey within days of my offer being accepted. On both occasions, Helen was easy to contact by telephone and email and regularly updated me on progress. She delivered the reports within three working days of the survey as promised. The reports themselves were detailed and thorough. On the basis of the first report, I decided not to proceed with the purchase and I am grateful to Helen for pointing out the defects of that particular property. Her report on the second bungalow has encouraged me to continue with the purchase. I have found Helen to be very professional but also very approachable and always willing to answer any queries. I would not hesitate to ask Helen to undertake a survey for me again, should I need further assistance in the future. ”


“Dear Peter It was a difficult decision to sell our lovely house, and getting the right estate agent was a difficult step too, but from your first visit to us, it felt right. We had complications on the way, related to the sale of next door, but you handled each bump in the road with the professionalism that comes from not just knowing the business, but knowing your clients. Your personal touch as well as your vast experience, gave us confidence along the way in a way that the bigger players in the business struggle to do. I’d recommend you to anyone! Thank you so much. With every good wish ”

Dr J M  

"After approaching a number of estate agents in Malton I immediately knew that Peter Illingworth's were going to be my chosen one... Helen walked around he house and considered each room before going away and giving the value much thought, rather than giving me a knee jerk valuation. From that day Illingworth's have provided a consistently good service, both Helen and Emma worked tirelessly in the final weeks to completion keeping me up to date on progress, providing the information my solicitor should have given me.

The Malton office was always a pleasure to ring and Helen/Emma always dealt with my queries efficiently - by the end of the sale we'd even had a few laughs along the way. So thank you for all your help ladies, I would definitely recommend your service to all!"

Miss M.N

We were so pleased to choose Peter Illingworth Estate Agents. From start to finish Helen and Emma were kind, helpful and understanding in every aspect of my house sale. Nothing was too much trouble and they always had time to help with any questions or problems I had.

Mrs R  

I cannot praise the work of Peter Illingworth’s Kirkbymoorside office highly enough. 
From the first visit Peter inspired confidence. His strategy for marketing the property was first rate, and he showed enthusiasm above and beyond that of any of his competitors. Unlike other agents he listened to how I wanted to market and show my house, and did not try to overprice the property or give an instant valuation. The brochure and photos of the property were beautiful, showing my house in its best light. The website pictures and the property details on rightmove were very comprehensive. 
I do feel that we couldn’t have had a better service from anyone. Sharon was always available and nothing was too much trouble. Her Professional manner meant she was always willing to go above and beyond to make sure that phone calls and emails were answered and sent promptly. Her advice was faultless and she worked tirelessly to bring the sale to a conclusion, through a very long, difficult sale. She is a great asset to the Kirkby office. 
Worth Every Penny! Thanks to you both

“Working with Sharon and the team at Peter Illingworth was a pure pleasure, from the moment of asking them to market my property to the day it was sold I felt I was in the hands of true professionals. Sharon was always there to guide and support and went beyond the call of duty when trying to push through a tight completion date, working with all parties to make the deal go through. She actually kept me sane multiple times when I was swinging for the chandeliers, keeping my feet on the ground. The highest praise I can say is that if I needed to sell another house again, they would be my estate agent. Thank you team for everything and putting up with my craziness”.
