A big thank you to Karen and her staff who achieved sale and completion of my property within three months of putting it on the market.  It is a great pleasure to deal with a team which combines efficient use of modern technology with excellent communication skills and old fashioned personal service and courtesy.

Mr Bird & Mr Marshall - Oxford Grove, Bolton:

I first used Karen Ritchie Estates when we were selling one of our properties.

Karen and her team were very professional in the way they went about things. In the last 18 months they have sold 3 properties for me and my business partner and everything went through smoothly with each property.

Karen and the team also sold my daughter’s home for her very quickly within two weeks and at a great price.

I would not hesitate to use her again in the future I would thoroughly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone selling their home.

Karen Ritchie’s enthusiasm is infectious.  Karen valued my house and was honest about what I could be expected to receive.  She explained what she and her team could offer and I was in no doubt about using her services.  Carly kept me informed every step of the way and was keen to progress the sale as much as she could.

Karen was recommended to me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her team to you.

Sarah Lovell - Church Road, Smithills:

I am delighted with the stellar service provided by the entire team at Karen Ritchie Estates. From the very outset every interaction has been incredibly straight forward. At what can be a stressful time, the process has been slick and easy to manage - in fact, the most difficult task of securing a buyer happened in record time - this is testament to the breadth of their reach and innovative selling techniques.

If you are looking to sell or buy, I cannot recommend the business more highly.

Thank you all. You have been great!

January 2016

Karen Ritchie Estates

Natalia & James Booth - Kingscourt Avenue, Smithills:

I cannot praise Karen Ritchie and her team enough. From Karen coming to our house to discuss our house going up for sale to our exchange of contracts, we have been provided with a first class service. Each member of the team are professional, very knowledgeable, and communicated with us regularly throughout the moving house process.

Karen and her team even assisted us in buying our new property, which alleviated any stress which we anticipated when selling and buying a property. Thank you to Karen and your team for everything. We will highly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to all of our family and friends.

Again thanks for everything.

January 2016

Karen Ritchie Estates

Frank & Veronica Holstead - Tonge Moor Road,Tonge Moor:

A buyer was found shortly after signing up, and the communication following from Karen Ritchie was excellent. (unlike that from our previous agency)

Each of the staff were familiar with our case when answering any queries, and at all times courteous, helpful and enthusiastic.

Our mistake was in not choosing Karen Ritchie from the outset when first marketing our property. Highly Recommended.

Sincere thanks to Karen and her team.

January 2016

Karen Ritchie Estates

Clare Lennie - Sandringham Road, Horwich:

Whilst there have probably been more stressful moves than our’s, the selling of our house was far more complicated than we would have hoped. Throughout the process the team at Karen Ritchie were excellent. They were proactive in trying to get the fastest and best sale for us and once the process of the sale started they worked really hard to negotiate between ourselves as the sellers and our buyer. All the staff in the office have been great, but particularly Carlie who worked very hard for us and was constantly available, professional and patient during my calls to her! If Carlie was unavailable other members of staff were always there to take messages or answer our queries. I was really impressed too that Karen remembers all of her clients so clearly!

I would like to say a very big thank you to you all and will happily recommend you to others.

January 2016

Graham Newton - New Lane, Harwood:

I would like to thank all the girls at Karen Richie's for everything you have done to sell my house for me as we had to move out quickly due to death in family. Although I am a bit disappointed with the price I got for it I did expect a bit more, but due to the circumstances I am really grateful for everything you have done.

Anne Lomax - Nunnery Road, Deane:

Nigel & Kerry Carter - Bury Road, Breightmet:

We have been extremely impressed with Karen and all the team, who have managed to make the selling of our house pain-free!  From the initial valuation, which was honest, fair and above all achievable, through to the completion of the sale, we have found the staff to be very professional, and they have kept us well informed of all relevant interest and developments. They offer a personal touch which sets them apart from other agents and we are very glad we chose Karen Ritchie Estates to sell our home

December 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Frank & Gemma Liguoro - Church Road, Smithills:

From the moment I met Karen and her team, I knew they were the agents for me. Karen’s knowledge, expertise, repertoire and enthusiasm were informative and infectious.

On that first day not only did they leave their competition behind (I had met a few earlier not being local and wanting to see what options I had) they left me feeling assured.

I was right to feel that, after two viewings and a few days the property was sold. Karen and her team delivered.

If I’m ever buying or selling property in Bolton again………I have your number.

Thank you Karen Ritchie Estates

Karen Ritchie Estates

Mr Ian Harrison - Fairhaven Road, Astley Bridge:

Just to say thanks for all the staffs Input in selling my property, after nearly two years and three estate agents I was beginning to believe estate agents were as honest and efficient as solicitors.

Within 2 weeks I had a buyer and despite both the vendors and my solicitors making the process as difficult as possible the staff at Karen Ritchie battled through and made this as painless as possible.

I would recommend you guys unreservedly to any potential seller, my only regret is that I didn't use you first a great big thank you to all.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Maxine Geary & Lorraine Caine - Hillside Avenue, Bromley Cross:

I would like to thank Karen Ritchie Estates for their great effort in selling our property; there are a few things Karen has done for us that have shown just how great they are.

The main pointer being that in this world people let you down, one thing I can say is that Karen has never once let us down during the sale of our property and whatever she has said will be done has always been done.

All the team are very approachable, pleasant to speak with regarding anything you need help with or to be updated on.

I would certainly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone thinking of selling a property, you will not be disappointed.

We have bought and sold several properties through other agents but have never before experienced the professionalism of Karen Ritchie Estates.  From the initial valuation to completion their service has been exemplary.  There have been hiccoughs along the way, when chains collapsed, but they have been very pro-active in finding new prospective buyers and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

November 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Ryan Cunniff & Georgina Aspinall - Devonshire Road, Heaton:

This was our first property which we renovated and it was with a heavy heart that we put it up for sale.  From the outset, Karen Ritchie Estates really worked hard to gain us a lot of viewings but at the same time find us the right buyer who not only wanted to live in the property, but would appreciate the time and effort we spent on it.

Nothing was ever too much trouble, every query or concern we had Karen Ritchie Estates ensured we received an answer or our mind was put at ease.  Everyone at Karen Ritchie Estates is very enthusiastic and will do the upmost to ensure the service you receive is of a high standard.

Just want to thank Karen Ritchie Estates for all their hard work in selling the property. All the girls kept me well informed and did everything they said they would do.

The office was always contactable and when speaking to any of the girls they were always very pleasant. They did all the viewings for me 7 days a week which saved me a lot of messing around and it was a reasonable turn around with the sale.

I would highly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone who is looking to sell their property.

Miss Akhtar - Somerset Road, Heaton:

Just a quick email to sincerely thank Karen Ritchie Estate for the outstanding job they did in selling my home, making it a smooth transaction. There professionalism, courtesy, advise and honesty were true to their word. They kept me informed every step of the way. My confidence had somewhat been knocked from the previous agencies who gave me false promises and did not deliver. Therefore, what I perceived to be a daunting and difficult process, turned out to be pleasant and easy.

I would have no hesitation recommending Karen Ritchie Estates to friends, relatives and work colleagues.

Thank you again for the fantastic service.

October 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Graham Burt - Holden Mill, Blackburn Road, Sharples:

I wish to thank Karen and her team for giving me excellent service throughout the time my property was for sale and after during the contract period. They provide a great professional experience right from the initial realistic valuation to the final handing over of the keys. I wish I had not wasted 9 months of selling time with an over optimistic company who most certainly did not have me high on their list of priorities.

A big thank you to Karen Richie and the great team that she has. The team kept me up to date how the sale of the house was going on a weekly base. The house was just one of many for sale on the same street I thought the house would never get sold. From day one Karen Ritchie said we will find you a buyer and they did. Again a big thank you to all the staff. When it's time to sell again as Arnold says, ‘I'll be back’.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Robert & Janet Walker - Parkgate Drive, Astley Bridge:

I have found Karen Ritchie estate Agents to be extremely professional in all aspects of the housing market.

I was very impressed with Karen Ritchie Estates from my first meeting with their sales valuer. She gave sound, friendly advice, without any ‘flannel’ which was clearly based on thorough knowledge and experience of the local property market, and I decided to instruct Karen Ritchie in preference to other local estate agents – I have not regretted my choice at any stage.

Their property marketing strategy, communication, sales negotiation and ongoing advice has been excellent throughout – and they got the property sold at the right price (and at a reasonable rate of fees)!

Karen Ritchie’s friendly and knowledgeable staff all provided an excellent professional service and I have no hesitation in recommending them as a first rate estate agents.

August 2015

Michael Gaskell - Ashbee Street, Astley Bridge:

August 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Rachel Kirkman   - Arnold Street, Halliwell:

Most estate agents leave people wondering what they got for the fees that they have paid. This never entered our mind with Karen Ritchie. From start to finish they were professional, efficient, honest and dedicated. They tell you what should be done, tell you when and how it will be done, and deliver. An excellent team that work well together each having a good understanding of our property wherever we rang with a query. We could not fault them! Highly recommended.

July 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Susan Ogden & Kathryn Woods- New Lane, Harwood:

During my time as a courier in Bolton I often got into conversation with my clients, some of the time about house sales.  It became apparent to me that people who had used Karen Ritchie Estates were particular impressed how their sale had been handled. When the time came for our family home of 50 years to be sold, my sister and I discussed which estate agent to use and, of course, we decided to try Karen Ritchie. We were not disappointed. It was good to receive the personal touch from Karen herself who gave us very sound advice. She and her staff were helpful, friendly and very approachable. It was important to us that any viewings would be accompanied by someone from the office. The house was very well advertised, sold quickly and we were kept well informed at all times. My sister and I would certainly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone who has a house to sell and we would like to say a big thank you to Karen and her staff for their help, professionalism and expertise.

I am grateful to the team at Karen Ritchie Estate Agents for their attention to detail, helpful attitudes, hard work, and pro-activeness to help keep things moving.

Tracey Blackmore -  Lords Stile Lane, Bromley Cross:

After having my property up for sale for nearly a year with another estate agent I was given a recommendation to try Karen Ritchie Estates, which I did. Within no time at all we had a sale agreed and completed last week. I would like to thank Karen and her team for the quick and efficient way that they handled the sale and would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell a property. Karen Ritchie Estates will be my number one choice in the future.

Kathy Trodden - Sherbourne Road, Heaton:

I would like to express my gratitude to you and your exceptional staff for the professional way in which you conducted the sale of my home. The marketing and promotion provided an honest review of the house I have lived in for most of my life and was a key feature in the quick sale of the property. Your personal approach meant that both myself and the buyer had confidence in you from the start of the process. It is without reservation that I would recommend you and your team to anyone who is thinking of selling their home.

July 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Gilbert & Deirdre Whittle - Walker Avenue, Great Lever:

We would like to thank Karen Ritchie Estates. Karen and her staff are truly professional; they always kept us well informed and up to date on the viewings and also the on-going sale of our property.

After being let down by one of the well-known larger estate agents who basically left all the viewings to ourselves and with very little communication.

We were told by three separate people to go with Karen and they recommended her and we are so glad we took their advice.

Karen Ritchie Estates are thoroughly professional; she got us the price we wanted.

WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Thank you to Karen and her dedicated staff.

I can’t express enough how so professional and efficient they have been throughout the whole process.

Always so friendly and helpful.

I have been kept up to date on a regular basis with the progression of my sale & never had to chase for any information.

I have and will continue to recommend them to anybody who wishes to put their property on the market. I cannot thank them enough

Caroline Wilkinson - Portfield Close, Heaton:

To Karen and all her team,

Thank you very much for selling my house. A difficult process in a complex situation, you were all fabulous and we got there in the end. With the whole situation everything was taken off my hands including viewings, which were all accompanied by a lovely member of your staff and was just what I needed. Again a great big thank you to you all at Karen Ritchie Estates and I will be sure to recommend you to all I know.

June 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Philip & Shelley Catterall - Markland Hill Lane, Heaton:

We would like to thank Karen and all the team for their help and professionalism in making our move possible.

From my first meeting with Karen when she valued our house I couldn't help be impressed by her confidence and expertise about the service the team could provide. Our house was sold quickly, efficiently and just as importantly the team helped us find the perfect new home. Throughout the whole process of selling our old house and buying our new home, we very much felt that all the team were looking after us, Carlie in particular helped with all aspects of the move and was regularly on hand to chase details and keep the deals moving through efficiently.

I can’t thank them enough for all their help and certainly wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone thinking of selling their home.

June 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

John Mingham and Tracy Swanick - Eastbourne Grove, Heaton:

We tried to sell our house using another local estate agent and despite a lot of viewings we failed to receive a single offer.

We contacted Karen Ritchie Estates after a period of time and were immediately impressed with their professionalism and enthusiasm. Karen and her team took over the viewings and guided us on how best to present the house and we immediately began to see the volume of viewings increase and we began to see offers. The sale was quickly completed and we were very pleased throughout the whole process. We were especially impressed with how the team supported us every step of the way liaising with other parties to ensure that the sale was completed in a timely fashion.

With many thanks to the Karen Ritchie Estates team, I would have no problem in recommending their services to whoever may ask.

June 2015

Karen Ritchie Estates

Ben Kenny & Emily Cowan - Devonshire Road, Heaton:

I would just like to say a big thank you to all at Karen Ritchie Estates team for their efforts in a successful sale of my property.

Their service was very efficient to me as I work shifts and without the help of the team dealing a 100% with all the viewings, a sale would not have been possible.

They keep you up to date throughout the whole process even if you think things have quietened in terms of viewings.

I would advise anyone who wants to sell their home, to go with Karen Ritchie.

June 2015

Mark Heald - Withins Drive:

I’d like to thank all of the team at Karen Ritchie Estates for a professional, straightforward and friendly service. They did exactly what they said they would do – sell a property for me at the price I wanted, quickly and with no fuss. Well done all!

June 2015

D Llewellyn - Arthur Street, Little Lever:

Relatives recommended KR as their sale and purchase went ahead very quickly and efficiently where other Estate Agents failed. I met with Karen who took room measurements, agreed the sale description, prepared our agreement and the house sale was posted on the internet the following day. Carlie kept me informed re timings of each viewing and always gave me feedback from potential buyers. They were very proactive and if I rang the office, whoever answered was quickly aware of progress and able to advise me. From my experience KR and her team know their business and are very good at what they do, they are professional yet friendly. I would recommend KR Estate Agents to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

May 2015

David Gregory - The Dell, Bradshaw:

I have been very happy with the service I received from Karen and her team. The key selling point for me was that Karen’s team did all the viewings, I had been with other agents previous to Karen and had to do all the viewings myself, which now with hindsight I realise is not the best way.

I have been kept informed every step of the way during the house sale transaction and at all times Karen and her team demonstrated professionalism and integrity.

I have no hesitation in recommending their service to anyone. Thank you.

May 2015

Verona Catlow - Moss Bank Way, Bolton:

Although it took slightly longer than I had hoped to sell my property, due to me expecting things to happen yesterday, if not sooner. Karen and the girls kept at it and it paid off. Nothing was too much trouble. As a plus you are guaranteed to have a laugh with the girls. Stick with Karen Ritchie Estates, they will come through.

April 2015

Alice Smith - Wemsley Grove, Tonge Moor:

I would like to say a great big thank you to Karen Ritchie Estate Agents and her team for the sale of my property. They kept in constant contact, with phone calls at least once a month and always had a very positive attitude.

If you have property to sell I would 100% recommend their company to act on your behalf.I had my house for sale with a different estate agent, after a while the only time they got in contact was to ask for a price decrease.

April 2015

Catherine Johnson - The Hall Coppice:

Third time lucky! Karen Ritchie was the right agent at the right time. They did what they said they would, including accompanied viewing which was promised but not fulfilled by other agents I’d tried. The first people to view bought the house and I am very grateful to Carlie and the rest of the team for helping me through this successful sale.

April 2015

Ben & Kayleigh - Brighton Avenue, Heaton:

I would like to say a huge thank you to Karen Ritchie and all of the team. After a few months of browsing the net we spotting a house that we really liked, the problem was we hadn’t put our house on the market. Karen came out and carried out a valuation advising me that I needed to be realistic with the price if I wanted to sell quickly (which we did). The property went on the market and to our delight was sold in less than a week, in December too with it being a notorious quiet month. From that point Carlie chased my sale and purchase through (and upward chain) to completion and kept me informed throughout by email and telephone.

I would and have recommended Karen Richie to friends, family and colleagues. In fact the team sold my nans and all went through smoothly and without issue in the same manner as mine did.

Richard Whitehead - Graythwaite Road:

Everything Karen Ritchie touches turns to Sold !

I have found all the Karen Ritchie staff very professional and friendly in my dealings which gave me the confidence that the potential buyers for my property would be treated in the same way.

I loved that all the viewings were done by them and all I had to do was hand my keys over. My house was valued at the right price and we achieved 94% of the asking price. The sale process has then been chased on a daily basis by the Branch Manager and I have received regular updates.

I can recommend Karen Ritchie Estates whole heartedly for any house sellers and will be using her again.

March 2015

Gary wilkes - Roslin:

Very pleased with the service I received, from start to finish we were kept informed regarding the sale, would definitely recommend Karen and her staff to everybody I know and deal with.

January 2015

Caroline and Carl - Hughes Street:

I would like to say a huge Thank you to Karen Ritchie and her team for the excellent service we received when selling and buying our new house. We were originally with another estate agent and found that when our sale originally fell through we were left to deal with it on our own doing all the chasing with no one getting back to our calls. At the end of our contract we decided to switch to Karen Ritchie's and never looked back! We had another buyer within a couple of weeks and everything went smoothly from there.

All the staff are extremely helpful especially Carlie who always gets back with any queries I have and has made the whole moving process a pleasant experience for us as a whole. I will definitely recommend you to any family or friends thinking of moving in the future.

simon - clough meadow:

Karen and her team did a fantastic job with the sale of my house, from the moment I placed it on the market with them, they were extremely proactive. Within a few short weeks there were about 10 viewings and a sale was agreed inside the first month of the house being on the market at more or less the asking price. Her approach to the sale was a refreshing change from the agent that I had on previously. Karen did all the viewings herself and generated excellent feedback from them.

What pleased me most was the regular contact both before and after we agreed the sale. Compared to my experience with the previous agent, this was night and day.

I would highly recommend Karen to anyone wanting to sell, as she clearly understands what's needed to get the viewers and offers to come flying in.

January 2015

Mr & Mrs Morris - Maryland Avenue:

We would definitely recommend Karen Ritchie and her team to sell your house.

We found them to be very efficient and professional. Whenever we had a viewing Carly would get back to us sometimes within the hour or by the next day to let us know how the viewing went. They do all this for a very competitive price. Thanks to all the team, especially Carly.

Many thanks to Karen and her team who did the right work in the marketing of my property. The staff was professional and sensitive to my needs throughout the sale process which helped towards making the purchase as smooth as possible.

December 2014

Kathryn Todd - Smith Lane:

I had the job of selling a house on behalf of a relative and needed to engage a firm of Estate Agents who were going to be trustful, responsible and reliable.  Karen’s professional team of ladies were just that and more. They kept me informed about every step of progress and with the utmost courtesy; nothing was ever too much trouble for them. They took care of all viewings which culminated in a most satisfactory sale and within a relatively short period of time. Very good, considering the current market. Thanks to all of you and especial thanks to Carlie who, when she says “I’ll get back to you” she actually does!!

December 2014

Mr & Mrs flett -  Red Lane Road:

Selling a property in the current market can for some become, a long drawn out, stressful experience filled with uncertainty and disappointment and inevitably leaving you with the opinion that all estate agents are basically the same. I am pleased to say that does not apply to Karen Ritchie Estates and her team who are in my opinion streets ahead of her competition, with years of superior local knowledge combined with realistic property prices. There was always someone available to keep you updated on the progress of your sale and any problems that arose would be quickly resolved. I would like to thank all the girls in Karen’s team, particularly Carlie who was always available to deal with any concerns we had.

Thanks again for an excellent result.

December 2014

Mornington Road:

From putting our property on the market with Karen Ritchie Estates we had an offer and accepted it within 3 weeks!!  We found the service to be friendly, efficient and very helpful.

As a retired sales director I know how important it is to have the best team possible working with you. I’m so please that my choice was for Karen and the girls to handle our house sale. They have been so organised and informative, but with a very practical approach to the entire process from day one. It has been a pleasure to work with such a nice yet thoroughly professional team who you feel really has your interests as a priority during a quite intense time.

Karen our sincere thanks to you all for bringing this sale to a speedy conclusion in such a uncertain climate.

We thought that the service provided to us by Karen Ritchie Estates for the sale of our house, from valuation to completion was excellent.

September 2014

Mr & Mrs Doran - New Church Road:

If you’re thinking of selling your house look no further than Karen Ritchie estates. She provided us with a highly professional, personal service that could not be faulted.

Our property took a little longer than we expected to sell but we were never tempted to change agents because we knew the team could not do any more for us than what they were already doing. We were kept informed all the way about what was happening and received regular updates on our property and on how the market was generally. Every interest in our property was thoroughly followed up, we would have no hesitation in recommending Karen Ritchie estates to anyone looking to sell a property.

September 2014

Spinning meadows:

A work colleague recommended Karen Ritchie Estates to me and from the first appointment with Karen, who is honest and straight talking in regards to property prices and the market as it stands at the time, through to the finish it has been a stress free transition, even taking into account issues with the buyers solicitor the office staff at Karen Ritchie have been efficient and prompt with updates chasing the tail of solicitors and keeping the ball rolling. A big thank you to Carlie and Laura who have been extremely professional and helpful at all times, as indeed have all the office staff I’ve spoken to.

The house went on the internet and five days later we had an offer which we accepted, sold in five days what more can be said!

Nick & Carrie - Sharnford Close:

Karen was recommended to us by a friend as we had no idea to who to go with when we first was looking to put our house on the market. Straight away she (and her team) put our mind at rest and took us through the whole process step by step, keeping us informed at all times. We had a few issues with the sale of our house from the buyer, but Karen made sure we were kept informed and dealt with all the queries. They couldn’t do enough for us and we will gladly recommend her if any ask who is the best agent to use. A lovely, friendly, honest and reliable team. Brilliant service, thanks guys.

I am very impressed with how Karen valued my property and also her honest comments on the valuation. I received frequent feedback to me over the phone on “the state of play” re viewings, solicitors, buyers etc. A quick agreement to my request for a price drop to get a quicker sale was very impressive. The ladies at the office are polite and pleasant to speak to in meetings and during phone conversations; there were no snags or errors.

WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THIS GREAT TEAM!!!!!! We have been trying to sell our house with another agent and as soon as we switched to Karen Ritchie estates we started to get viewings and real interest, we sold our property for a price we was very happy with and we was kept fully updated from start to finish, if you’re looking for an honest, reliable, pro-active estate agent this team will not let you down.

Church Road:

It's always a gamble choosing an estate agent and trying to find the right one. Karen Ritchie Estate have been brilliant, with excellent customer service‎ phoning me to keep me informed throughout the whole process. No question seemed foolish and they continually feedback after each viewing and when if went a little quite pre-empted my call and detailed my options.

Once we had a buyer in place, they continued to push the sale through perfectly and would have no hesitation using Karen Ritchie Estates again. Thanks for making it as painless as possible.

Denise Jolley  - Hills Meadow:

Great job & well done and a very big thank you for selling our house so quickly. It had been on the market for over 12 months with another estate agent with little interest. You worked quickly and efficiently to ensure a sale, which we had within four weeks!! Everything went through with no problems. You have a dedicated professional friendly polite efficient and reliable service, and a team who are all a credit to your company.

Bottom O' Th' Morr:

We would like to thank all the team for the way they handled the sale of our property. From the moment we decided to sell our home, we were given first rate advice as to how to make the house more sellable, what was worth spending a little money on and what was not. Every enquiry was dealt with promptly and we always felt like each and every one in the office was doing their best to follow up on viewings and ask potential buyers for feedback. We felt that both us as clients and the sale of the house were equally important to Karen Ritchie Estates, which really helped when you have to cope with the disappointment when people were not interested in buying the house. They remained positive and good humoured throughout.

We are so glad that we went with a local estate agent who was able to see the deal through thanks to their experience and knowledge of the housing market. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

August 2014

Karen Ritchie Estates

Mark Robinson  - Rutherglen:

Just a quick line to say thank you to you and your team for all of your efforts in selling my property for me. After having it on the market for over four years with various well known other local estate agents it was a complete change when I put it in your hands. The team kept me up to date at regular intervals as well as informing me of all the viewings and then giving me feedback after each one and also updated me regularly on the state of the market, such a change from previous agents when I had to do all of the chasing for updates etc.

I dealt with several of your team and they were always extremely courteous and were able to answer any question I had. I would not hesitate to contact you in the future if I was selling a house.

Well done to you and all of your team.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Simone - Bradshaw Brow:

I cannot thank Carlie and the team enough for the professional and personal way in which they dealt with the sale of my house.  Like many of the other reviewers of Karen Ritchie Estates, I too previously had my house up for sale with a large town centre company.  This is the first house I’ve sold so I thought their lack of communication was normal, however after constantly chasing after them and losing a buyer just before Christmas I took it off the market.  In January I decided to try again with Karen Ritchie after reading their excellent reviews.  I never looked back!  From the word go I was so impressed.  I live and work outside of Bolton and they even offered to come and meet me nearer to my home so I could complete the necessary paperwork.  After putting the house up for sale with them in the January the viewings came in thick and fast, then we accepted an offer just a short time later in February.

There were lots of enquiries from the solicitors on my house and without the help of Carlie chasing the solicitors and keeping everything moving, I fear we would have lost the sale.  I spoke to her pretty much every day in the final days leading up to completion and her honest, friendly, personal and professional approach really reassured me through this extremely stressful time.

I cannot put into words how happy I am with the service I received and would recommend them to anyone.  Thank you to the whole team for all your help, in particular Carlie and Laura.

As far as estate agents go, they may not be the biggest but they are by far the best!

Steve & Lucy - Stanley Road, Heaton:

Any seller would be hard-pressed to find a better estate agency than Karen Ritchie. When we first approached them, we were feeling despondent and depressed, having had our house on the market for a year, with some interest, but no real offers. Karen personally inspected our house and, as well as making suggestions as to how to make our house more desirable (a service not offered by our previous estate agent or many others out there), she gave us an honest estimation of the price it would sell for. We also discovered that the price we had our house advertised for over the past year couldn't have been further away from what potential buyers were willing to pay, so they saved us a lot of waiting around.  The viewings began instantly, and in total I think there were 20+ in a very short space of time. The service that you pay for is absolutely outstanding. As other sellers have mentioned, you really do feel as if you're the only seller on their books, as they provided constant updates on the interest our house was attracting, and detailed feedback from viewers (which I know from experience can be very difficult to get!). The escorted viewings are also a major benefit. With our previous estate agent, we felt slightly uncomfortable when we had to greet viewers and show them round, and the viewers felt awkward themselves, so did not get a good enough look at the house. With Karen Ritchie, an estate agent gives viewers the tour, and they can ask questions and inspect everything without feeling survielled by the owners. The team are also incredibly professional and friendly, and always remain positive, which is much appreciated, and also essential when doubt creeps in as to whether your house will sell. They also ensured that our selling process was completed as swiftly as possible, making regular phone calls to our buyer, their solicitor and our solicitor. Their proactive approach is probably one of the main reasons they are the best estate agency out there. If we could offer just one tip to anyone selling their house, it would be to use this estate agency.

We would like to thank all the staff at Karen Ritchie Estates for selling our house. Our house had been up for sale with another estate agent for over 5 months with no welcome phone call and only one viewing. We decided to give Karen Ritchie a try. What a difference! Enthusiastic, friendly and professional staff. We were always kept informed with progress and they even found our new home for us.  

Excellent service and would recommend Karen Ritchie estates to anyone.

Mr and Mrs Duckworth - Wyndham Avenue, Middle Hulton:

Our next door neighbour advised us to use Karen Ritchie Estates after Karen and her team had recently sold their home. Instructing Karen Ritchie Estates to sell our house proved to be an excellent decision. We particularly liked the no nonsense, lack of flannel approach and the excellent communication skills shown by Karen and her team. Everyone was very approachable, telephone calls were promptly returned and we were kept fully informed at all times. For us a major bonus which we hadn’t considered prior to putting our house on the market was the accompanied viewings. This meant that our busy schedules were uninterrupted as we didn’t have to be available for viewings. We would definitely 100% recommend using Karen Ritchie Estates. Thank you to the whole team for selling our property.

Mr and Mrs Hyde  - Broad Oak Road, Great Lever:

Having to sell my house due to my health was a bit upsetting at first. Wondering about people going through the house and offering me silly money was a bit daunting.

Karen on the other hand was so helpful. She assured me that she would take care of everything.

Finding the right price for my house was so difficult to do, but Karen was great!

The price was set and my wife and I was happy.

“Leave everything to me” she said and our house was sold in the first month.

Karen did everything from start to finish, she was great.

The key to her success is having the right staff, they were so helpful.

Thanks to you all.

The whole team at Karen Ritchie Estates have dealt with the sale of my late parents' property in a very professional and friendly manner. They have also shown sensitivity during the process.

At the initial meeting Karen was very enthusiastic and positive about achieving a successful sale. She offered useful advice on the best ways in which to present the property.

Throughout the process, we have been kept fully informed of all developments. All the viewings were supervised either by Karen herself or Carlie, and on each occasion we were rapidly given useful and detailed feedback by Laura or Chrisie.

The team have a pro-active style, and interest in the property was registered within hours of it appearing on line. This approach was maintained  throughout the sale period.

We have never sold a property before and as a result of the successful outcome, we would have no hesitation in recommending Karen Ritchie Estates.

Teresa Knight  - Ainsworth Hall Road, Ainsworth:

More than pleased with Karen Ritchie Estate Agents    -   15 weeks from going on the market to completion and a good sale price!!!

Having half-heartedly attempting to sell the house over the last 7 years with various estate agents, I was pleasantly surprised with the service and dedication of Karen Ritchie’s team when I had 2 viewings as soon as the house went on the market. The third viewer put in an offer and the sale went ahead.

Other agents had put my house on the market and for months at a time hadn’t even called to give a progress report let alone actually arrange a viewing.

Dealing with Karen Ritchie Estate Agents has been a refreshing experience with constant updates and follow up calls from day one.

As soon as the house was put in the hands of Karen Richie estates the viewings started immediately. In just a mater of a few weeks my house was sold!

These people certainly know their job.

Karen and her team managed to arrange several viewings in a very short time and we received an offer, which we accepted, within only a few weeks.

Karen and Laura have been extremely helpful and professional in the work they have done for us and when unexpected problems arose within the chain, the expertise and persistence of Carlie was invaluable to try to help de-stress and smooth out the processes.

The help, guidance and support we have received from ALL members of the Team at Karen Ritchie Estates has been First Class and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.

Thank you so much for everything.

Rachael and Danny  - Centre gardens:

Just a quick thank you to you all for your help in selling our house.

We’ve wanted to sell for a few years now but we were always put off with the thought of all the stress and the messing about that is involved with it all but after to speaking to Karen and her team I was assured that this would not be the case with them.

She didn’t let us down and the whole process from start to finish has been relatively stress free. This was because Karen and her team were always there to answer any questions and give advice every step of the way.

One of the main reasons we decided to sell with Karen Richie’s over the other estate agents was that they offered a more personal service. We particularly liked the way Karen and her team show the prospective buyers around the house when you are not in. I think this is far easier and takes all the awkwardness out of someone looking round your house while you’re trying to carry on as normal.

From a buyers point of view, which is where we are now, this is also good because you’re not scared to ask questions or have a proper look around because the owners are there and you feel you may offend them. This has put me off a few properties we have viewed recently  purely because we weren’t comfy looking around the house. The service the Karen offers eliminates this immediately because all her staff are friendly and show the buyers around in a professional and approachable manner. One of the reasons I think our house sold so quickly!

Church Road, Smithills:

Karen Ritchie Estates was highly recommended to us by neighbours. After we spoke to Laura we were so impressed by the service offered and the speed of delivery that we did not bother to contact anyone else. We were not disappointed. We were contacted every day with updates, documents were prepared quickly and sent to us and viewings were arranged immediately. Karen Ritchie Estates found us a buyer so quickly! We would not hesitate to recommend them. Don't go anywhere else!

Thank you to all at Karen Ritchie Estates who have helped us through the process of selling our house. We found Karen to be very pro-active and professional in marketing our house. Carlie and Laura gave us excellent feedback after viewings and later gave us help and updates through to final completion.

We felt nothing was too much trouble for them.

Having been recommended by friends to use Karen Ritchie, we would not hesitate to recommend her ourselves.

After Karen and the team sold my father's property, I decided to give them a call. The service that Karen Ritchie and her staff has provided has been excellent. The viewing and liaison process was managed perfectly and we secured a deal with the help and expertise of the staff. The level of communication and assistance during the whole process was impressive and served our situation well.  The staff are extremely professional, yet friendly and always willing to help answer any queries swiftly.

Our experience with Karen Ritchie Estates has been a positive one from start to finish. All members of the staff have provided a very personal service keeping us regularly informed of progress. We believe that proactive nature has resulted in a quick sale of our property and set them apart from their competitors , several of which we have used in the past.

Alison Bell on Behalf of the Heaton’s - Lilly Street:

After the death of our lovely Dad we had the heartbreaking task of selling his home to pay for Mum’s care home.  We had previously been up for sale with another Estate Agent but were disappointed with the interest Dad’s house was getting (or more to the point not getting!), it was then I decided to go with Karen Ritchie Estate Agents.  From the initial valuation to the house being put on the market again I knew I had chosen right.

The amount of viewings we had was fantastic and not long after we had signed with Karen we had secured an offer.  Laura and Carly in the office are great.  Laura keeps you up to date with everything appointments etc, whilst Carly gives you constructive feedback from the viewings keeping you firmly in the loop.  At the moment there are lots of offers from various estate agents for ‘cheap’ deals to sell your house this was my initial mistake, in my opinion you get what you pay for and Karen Ritchie Estate Agents are worth every penny.

A big thanks to Karen and all the team for making what has been a difficult time easy and stress free.

Dormer Street:

We have been really impressed with Karen, Carlie, Laura and all the team throughout the sale process. Karen was honest and realistic when she came to value our property, and was very clear about exactly what would be done to market our house. The team kept in regular contact giving us detailed feedback and advice, and we received an offer on the property within three months. Karen and the team helped us with negotiations on the property we were buying and have worked really hard to make sure the sale went through as smoothly as possible, keeping in close contact with solicitors and providing us with regular updates as to how things were progressing. We would like to thank everyone at Karen Ritchie Estates for all they have done and would definitely recommend the team to anyone looking to sell.

Donna Cartmel - Grizedale Close, Smithills:

Karen, Carlie and the rest of the team.

I can honestly say you have restored my faith in estates agents from the sound advice given to me by Karen when she came to value my property to the speed with which a purchaser was found and then along the amazingly smooth path to completion, the whole process has been one of complete professionalism.

Thank you so much for all you have done.

Dula - Lowndes Street:

We would like to say a heartfelt thanks to Karen, Carlie, Laura, Christy and Cassidy for all their help in selling our home!

Previously, the property was advertised with the largest estate agent in Bolton who only managed to secure two viewings and no offers. In contrast, Karen and the team kept a steady stream of people coming through the door, provided us with continuous feedback and of course, made the sale.

I would highly recommend this estate agent because of the personal touch, excellent communication flow and obviously their effectiveness in making the sale happen.

Thanks again ladies!

Terry & Susan Gilfoyle - Wellington Road, Edgworth:

The first time I met Karen I was very impressed by her energy and enthusiasm and knew she was the right person to sell our house. Karen is very efficient and professional and gives a honest, straight talking opinion on the valuation and what figure can be achieved. She is also a very sincere person.

Karen, Carlie, and Laura are a excellent team who gave me real confidence and were fast, efficient and kept in close contact with us. It was a pleasure working with them to achieve the successful sale. We would recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone.

Dorothy Fitzpatrick - Oakhill Close:

From the minute Karen Ritchie came into my home full of enthusiasm she made me feel confident that she would be able to sell my house and within days the viewings started coming thick and fast.

I cannot thank Karen and her staff Laura and Carlie for the work they put into selling my house. Carly for the viewings she undertook and Laura with her cheerfulness on the telephone providing me constantly with plenty of feedback following a viewing.

Then my house was sold and I am now looking forward to a new life in a new home thanks to Karen, Laura, Carlie, Krissie and Cassidy.

I would recommend to anyone, if they want to sell their property and be kept in the picture, then contact Karen Ritchie Estates.

My sincere thanks for all you hard work.

Angela & Chris - Chorley Old Road, Heaton:

Highly Recommended!

Since researching and comparing estate agents that could best fulfill our needs, it was clear that Karen Ritchie Estate Agents outshone the others in terms of reputation, quality, and support. The numerous glowing testimonies by others currently benefiting from her services, and the abundance of positive references, led me to test Karen’s services.

Right from the start it was clear that Karen knew the market inside out and provided her opinion in a professional, friendly and honest manner. From start to finish the service provided by Karen and her team was fantastic; we were kept up to date on a regular basis and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no doubts about recommending her services to others.

Mrs Ball - Thorns Avenue, Astley Bridge:  

I have known Karen for several years now, having met her when I had a valuation on my property over 3 years ago. She is extremely affable and efficient and, therefore, when I saw in the Bolton evening news paper that she had set up her own estate agents early in 2012, I had no hesitation in getting in touch when I needed to sell my late relatives house. This was sold the same week as it was advertised-got much more than the asking price!!! Karen has gone beyond her duty, making a pleasant change in this day and age her staff have kept in touch every step of the way, any problems have been sorted out immediately.

‘CARE’ is the word at Karen Ritchie Estates. Thank you to Karen and her staff- Carlie, Krissie, Laura and Cassidy. I can’t fault them

Just wanted to thank you and your team for helping me sell my house. The house had been on and off the market for the last 5 years, you and your team managed to secure a sale in under 8 weeks! Having used other estate agents, I was particularly impressed at the frequent communication I had with you and your staff. I also appreciated the good advice you gave regarding preparing the house for viewings and appropriate pricing. I have recommended you to others and have shared with them my conviction that if you can't sell it no-one can!

Thanks again to you all, Sally

Ken Collett - Ryeburn:

Dear Karen, Laura and the team;

Well Ladies what can I say?

Professional; personable and knowledgeable; with a great understanding of the market conditions and property marketing.

In this age of impersonal service Karen Richie Estates stands out from the rest by providing good old fashioned values of client care backed up by exceptional property marketing skills. When you call them they know who you are. When they call you (weekly) to provide updates they clearly understand your property and market conditions and feedback on viewings is same day – Outstanding.

Our property was in a very competitive group with lots of similar properties and the tireless work by Karen and the team to attract potential buyers meant that we sold our house within just a few months, and we sold at the expected price.

I have read through the testimonials on the Karen Richie Estates Site and have read through many many examples of Clients going to Karen after failing to sell by another Agency and then getting great results with them within a short period of time.

Take my advice and save yourself from months of wasted effort and heartache with other Agencies – results speak for themselves – go direct to Karen and the team for the best service and best marketing I have personally seen from any Estate Agency.

Great Job Ladies!

Mr & Mrs Burt - Winchester way, Breightmet:

We had our house on the market with another agent for just over a year. During that time we didn’t receive a single phone call from them, much less any viewings. Someone recommended Karen Ritchie’s and we phoned Karen the same day.

We couldn’t believe the difference! Karen came round all enthusiastic, professional and friendly. She obviously knows the business inside out and is full of useful information. We also had regular phone calls from the lovely Laura to keep us fully up to date on what was happening and if we phones and spoke to anyone in the office they always knew who we were and details about our property. They are all just lovely to deal with, friendly and supportive and also very calming at times (thank you Carlie) selling a house can be quite stressful.

We strongly feel that Karen and her team are the best and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.

Ladies, we couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you

Miss Walsh - Markland Hill Lane, Heaton:

I initially decided to use Karen Ritchie Estates following the huge success they have had in selling properties across Bolton. I am so pleased that I chose Karen and her team as I cannot fault their hard work and professionalism at all. They were fantastic in the way they marketed my house and kept me up to date at each stage of the selling process. From the moment I met Karen, Carlie and Laura I knew they would be perfect as they were energetic and confident about selling my property. The first viewing came within a day of my house going up for sale and more continued to come thick and fast until an acceptable offer was made within 3 weeks of it being on the market. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the team at Karen Ritchie Estates and I would not hesitate in recommending them to all my friends and family for future house sales.

Mr and Mrs Durham - Lonsdale Road, Heaton:

Within two weeks of marketing the property, Karen Ritchie Estates had already found a buyer for my home. The staff got things moving very quickly and the sale went through very smoothly. We did have other agents out to value our home but weren’t impressed with anything they had to say and we found there was no professionalism. Unlike Karen and her team, who did genuinely seem to care about us and our family home. I have already recommended  Karen Ritchie Estates to a number of people and will continue to do it.

After researching different agents we decided to go with Karen Ritchie Estates. It was definitely the correct decision as after less than 3 weeks on the market we had 2 offers on our house.

Karen, Carlie and Laura made the whole process so easy, keeping us informed of proceedings at all times and giving us friendly and useful advice.

We would certainly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone as their professional, honest and friendly approach made selling our house hassle free.

After previously having my house on the market for months with another estate agent I finally gave up on it and a few months later I decided to go to Karen Ritchie. I am so glad I did, she had a view on my house within 2 weeks and an offer the week after. She did say she'd sell my house within 6 weeks and she certainly stuck to that promise! The whole team are friendly and efficient and I would recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their home. Big thanks to Karen and all the team!

A big thank you to Karen and her team for selling my house! After a friendly and professional visit by Karen to do valuation, Laura quickly had the house advertised, and within a matter of days Karen had found me a buyer! I was thrilled. Over the next few weeks, Carlie kept the momentum going, chasing solicitors and efficiently dealing with the negotiations. I was kept informed at every stage in the process. The service I received from Karen and her team was second to none. If you are selling your house and want an approachable, honest and well-organized estate agents…..choose Karen Ritchie Estates.

Natalie - Mellor Grove, Heaton:

I knew as soon as I met Karen, Carlie and Laura that they would be the team to sell our house. After an honest appraisal and multiple photos, our house was on the market and within a week we had an offer which we accepted.

The girls kept us up to date throughout the whole process, offering advice and guidance when required. They are very knowledgeable, on the ball and I believe that they go above and beyond what is probably expected of them, we felt like they had all the time in the world for us and that filled us with a huge amount of confidence.

They are a fantastic team and I am so happy that we chose them, moving house is very stressful but I felt the move was made so much easier with the help of Karen, Carlie and Laura.

I have nothing but praise for them and I would happily recommend the team if somebody I know wants to sell their house.

I would like to thanks Karen, Carlie and Laura for all the effort they have put into selling my property. My house was on the market 12 months before changing to Karen Ritchie estates, with two estate agents and only three viewings, with Karen I have had over 25 viewings. Carlie was fantastic in making sure everything was still moving forward after the offer had been accepted, right up until the day of completion. Karen Ritchie estates will be highly recommended by me. The fantastic service they give makes you feel like you are their only customer.

Thank you so much.

Helen & Alan - Lonsdale Road, Heaton:

We have recently sold our house using the fantastic services of Karen Ritchie and her team. We were impressed with the team from the start when Karen's valuation felt fair and honest in the current market. We chose to use Karen Ritchie from that moment and were not disappointed. We soon had viewings and received offers within weeks. We finally sold our house just 8 weeks after putting it up for sale for the price we wanted.

Throughout the selling process we were kept up to date and knew what would be coming next. Even when we did run into a few hiccups with our buyer Carlie, Karen and Laura dealt with everything and any issues were soon resolved.

We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Karen Ritchie estates. In fact we have already raved about the wonderful service we received. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole team and wish them well for the future.

Rebecca Hill - Eastgrove Avenue:

After having my property up for sale for 12 months, with another estate agent, I was feeling very low and thought the property would never sell. Karen Ritchie Estates was recommended to me. Karen came to view the property. She was very professional and honest, with no sales patter like my previous estate agent, which made me immediately feel more positive.

Within a few weeks I had more viewings with Karen Ritchie than I had in 12 months with my previous estates. Karen personally carried out the viewings of the property. Even in heavy snow, at the weekend. She had to pick up the viewers from the bottom of the hill my property was situated on, because they had got stuck!!!

The house was sold within a few months. Karen has a lovely team working with her, who cannot do enough to help. Laura & carlie, kept me up to date with the progress of the sale and are very friendly, yet professional girls.

I have already and will continue to recommend Karen Ritchie estates, Thank you for all your help.

Not having sold a house before, we found Karen Ritchie and her friendly staff very easy to deal with. We weren’t disappointed and found them very efficient, they kept us informed i.e. when viewings were taking place and gave us feedback straight away of which there was several. Karen and her team also explained all the logistics which made the sale easier to complete. The sale went through with no problems which were great for us and we would highly recommend Karen and her team to anybody wishing to sell their home.

We will most definitely be using Karen Ritchie estates should we sell again in the future!

Karen Ritchie Estates

Julianne & Kevin Scarlett  - Threadfold Way:

When I first saw your property page in the local paper I immediately liked how you stood out from all the rest, I contacted two local independent agents and thought why not invite Karen to carry out an appraisal too as the 'wild card' as I had nothing to lose. I was impressed right away when I met you by your energy and enthusiasm, and I liked your straight talking no nonsense approach. I asked many questions and you were very honest throughout, we discussed a price that we both felt was realistic and would actually achieve a sale and I liked your answers when I asked for tips on making sure the house was presented at its very best for viewings. I was a bit nervous about choosing the 'new kid on the block from outside the area' to sell my property [and you were not the cheapest] but what really mattered was results and felt I already trusted you to deliver on those promises.

Within one week of going live on Rightmove we had four viewings lined up and one of these turned out to be our buyer. I was a bit anxious about letting someone else take control of the accompanied viewings, but you didn't let us down, after a second viewing, a couple of days later we had a sale agreed, fantastic. Your customer care has been excellent throughout, nothing felt like too much trouble, with Laura your capable assistant keeping us regularly updated, and responding to all our calls promptly and efficiently.

I would and already have recommended you to friends and colleagues I wish you and your team every success for the future.

Thank you most sincerely,

After trying to sell our house for two years with two other estate agents, we had a break for 12 months then went to Karen Ritchie Estates where we sold our house in four months.

Nadine - Kingwood Avenue:

I had my property on the market with several other agents before I met Karen from Karen Ritchie Estates but had no success selling.  Karen visited me at my property, carried out the valuation and was very confident that she would sell my house.   By the time photographs had been taken and all the property details had been drawn up and approved Karen had already found a viewer for me.  I had more viewers on the property whilst on the market with Karen Ritchie Estates than I had with all the other agents put together.

Karen and Laura kept in contact with me all the time my property was on the market with them, updating me on new marketing ideas and generally just keeping me informed with what they were doing with regards to my property.  I found Karen, Laura and Carly very friendly whilst maintaining a professional manner and would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Thank you so much for everything you did whilst selling my house.

Thank you so much for selling my dad’s property so quickly.

I have never sold a property before and didn’t know where to start. My friend Alison told me about her friend Lesley etc etc...

That’s how I heard about Karen Ritchie estate agent. After visiting solicitors on Chorley old road, I thought I must be near Karen Ritchie. The minute I walked through the door I was immediately impressed by the friendliness, putting at ease, selling knowledge the atmosphere of the office that I was signed up to go within five minutes- not like me!

I have not been disappointed, my first impressions were correct, I was treated as though I was the only person in the world selling a property.

I was informed every step of the way by Laura’s cheery voice. Nothing was too much trouble- nothing was a problem.

Janet - Church Road:

From the moment I invited Karen into my home she put me at ease, very friendly, down to earth, I felt as I’d known her for years.

Karen was very honest and professional at all time. To be truthful I felt confident that Karen would be “the one” agent who could sell my house.  I was feeling very low, I thought I would never sell my house as I tried several agents over a period of six years with no luck.

I was so happy when the sold board went up. I would recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone wish to sell their property knowing you will be looked after by their friendly staff. I wish Karen Ritchie estates were around years ago!!! Good luck.

Rosalyn Rimmer - Oakleigh Avenue:

My name is Rosalyn and I just had to tell you about the great service I have had from Karen Ritchie Estate agents. Karen and Laura will give you service that is second to none, they are estate agents that go the extra 100 miles to ensure that everything is done to the highest standard imaginable. I had to phone Karen and Laura many times and they showed unending patience and always put my mind at ease. Anyway, I am moving this week thanks to all their help and advice and I couldn't be happier with the service I have received. I have never written a recommendation for an estate agency before, but then I have never received this level of service and I have sold and bought many houses in my lifetime.

Well done Karen and Laura

Roy & Cynthia Schofield - Greenmount Lane, Heaton:

After trying unsuccessfully for almost two years to sell our house with two large agents in the area, we decided to ask Karen if she could do anything for us.

She came to see us and discussed our property and took photographs which we were very pleased with, at this stage she was confident she would have no problem selling our house. We also felt as she left us that day that if she could not sell our house it would never sell. She was bright, confident and bubbly and made us feel confident also in her ability and efficiency.

She immediately got us a viewing which she accompanied, an offer was made and within exactly two weeks all arrangements had been completed, our house surveyed and a SOLD sign was on the board.

Not only did she sell our house, she also negotiated with the purchase of the property we were buying. At all times we felt we could contact her for help and advice.

Also many thanks to Laura, her very able assistant, she is also a little gem.

We would recommend Karen and her team to anyone wishing to sell their property, the service she offers is excellent. Karen you are a star.

Gerald & Margaret Rothwell  - Tottington Road:

Karen took over the selling of our property, which had been on the market for several months, coupled with the purchase of a property with the purchase of a property she was administering.

This was 7th November 2012. Within a few weeks and certainly before Christmas amazingly both transactions were completed.

During this brief but enjoyable period we experienced with Karen out on viewings and valuations and Laura in the office a most friendly but totally professional relationship.

We shall be delighted to recommend your company at any opportunity.

Thank you most sincerely,

Stanley Road:

A Unique and an Outstanding Professional team! Karen and Laura offer a truly personal service. Thank-you to you both Karen and Laura for selling the property in 6 weeks.

I found myself having to deal with the sale of my late mother’s property.

I phoned several agents from the town centre-but as soon as they walked through the door I wanted them to leave. Then Karen came to value the property and as soon as she walked into the house I felt at ease. She was friendly, very approachable, honest and enthusiastic. Karen gave me her honest opinion the positives and negatives of the house, and hints on how to sell it.

I phoned the office the day after Karen had valued the property to give the go ahead with the sale and spoke to Laura and knew that I had made the right decision.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Karen is available at all times on her mobile. She personally conducts all the viewings herself, to fit in with potential purchasers. (Unlike some agents who do viewings office hours only)  

Laura who is a pure Gem, with her warm friendly personality, she keeps you informed every step of the way. Laura chases up the solicitors and others to keep the sale run smoothly, and nothing is too much trouble for her.

I will be selling my home this year - with Karen Ritchie and Laura of course!

Michelle Clarke - Drysdale View:

Karen Ritchie Estates: Let me change your view. I was looking through the Property Guide in the Bolton News when I saw a page which stood out - the photos of properties were large and eye-catching and the text was clear. When I read that phrase I decided to ring Karen Ritchie Estates to get a valuation done on my house.

Having heard from friends how long it had taken to sell their houses with different estate agents, I was prepared for a 'long haul'. However, with Karen doing the viewings and highlighting the positive features of my house to prospective buyers it was only 11 weeks before I had a buyer. As well as selling my house quickly, Karen went out of her way to find me a new home. She took the time to find out what my requirements were and found me a lovely property.

Nor did her efforts stop there - Karen, and her efficient colleague Laura, chased up solicitors and kept the negotiations moving along swiftly, taking much of the pressure off me. They kept me informed every step of the way and I am amazed at how much they did. My previous experience of selling and buying houses had been stressful, yet I can honestly say that Karen completely changed my experience of moving into an overwhelmingly positive one. She changed my view - why not let her change yours?

Karen’s Estate agency is innovate and unique, Karen is herself an extremely warm efficient & motivated person who’s results speak for themselves, my house was sold within a week! This is all  thanks to the support advice and input from Karen and the service that we received which was faultless from start to finish, we would also like to say special thanks to Laura who also dealt with our sale, she was efficient polite and extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. All in all we had an outstanding experience and it took all the stress out of selling, I have and will carry on recommending your agency and if I ever move again I would not hesitate in coming back.

Chris - Dalkeith Grove:

Out of the three estate agents that valued the bungalow, Karen was the only one who was really enthusiastic and gave helpful advice.  This was continued throughout. Both Karen and Laura kept us informed at all times and made the whole process run smoothly and less stressful. I would certainly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates for a professional and personal service.

Thanks again

Philip and Sally Ormiston - Church Road, Smithills:

We chose Karen Ritchie Estates to sell our house for us because we felt she was experienced and knowledgeable about the area, and would provide us with a personal service, all of which we found to be true.We were very pleased to sell our house within two weeks of her putting it on the market, at a price higher than we expected. Consequently some friends of ours have already asked Karen to take over their sale, and we would have no hesitation in recommending her services.

We were also very pleased with the service offered by the solicitors that Karen recommended to us.

We hope the business prospers!

Best wishes to you all.

Markland Hill Lane:

Karen's bubbly, friendly personality and enthusiasm for her new business venture was immediately evident when she came to value my home back in April.  Her up front approach and guarantee that she would sell my property in this difficult climate made me decide to use Karen Ritchie Estates. 

From the moment my property was on the market, her assistant Laura, updated me regularly with any interested parties, rang and e-mailed to confirm any viewings and also contacted me as soon as she had any feedback.  Any queries I had she would reply immediately either by telephone, (when she could reach me!), or by e mail.  Karen carried out all the viewings and second viewings herself which was so convenient as I live in Wales.  She was also available on her mobile at weekends or replied to any messages late into the evenings. 

I had an offer on my home in November which I rejected, but Karen managed to increase the offer to a price I was happy to accept and the sale is due to complete on 7th December with absolutely no hold ups.......Laura is sure to keep chasing the Solicitors for you!! 

I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen and Laura to anyone thinking about selling their home......a very big thank you to you both.

June & Denise   - Dunblane Avenue:

In July of this year we sadly lost our Mum, which left us, to sell her beloved bungalow.

We took the usual route to find an estate agent. We choose three, located in the town centre for more impact (big Mistake) two were able to meet within the week, the third was a two week wait which was not acceptable to us. The two dually arrived, both had a quick look round the property then sat down to chat & chat some more, to cut a long story short, both left their cards for us ring if required. We were both a little unsure of which to choose if any, then Denise found Karen’s advert, and we were off and running, round she came, armed with camera, tape measure & loads of personality.

Pictures were taken and rooms were measured, then she sat down, She was honest with us, that the bungalow was a little out of date & this would reflect in the selling price, also selling a house was not easy, but hey I’ll give it go. We took all of 3 seconds to make up our minds, she was the girl for us.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Within 24 hours we had received & approved the house advertisement details.

Karen had two viewings booked for the following day and a third viewing the day after.

You may not believe what you are about to read, if it was us reading it, we would not believe it either, however we do assure you it is all completely true.

We first met Karen at 12.30 pm on Tuesday and on Friday at 9.00am we had accepted an offer, four weeks later we exchanged contracts.

Thank you, to you both, for the efficient & professional manner in which you handled the sale, you made an emotional journey easy for us.

Karen, hang on tight to Laura she is a credit to your company. You make a great team.

Andrea & Terry - Wyndham Avenue:

Karen is a breath of fresh air to the housing market. Fast and efficient with everything she does and very professional but straight talking. She will give you an honest opinion of what you can expect to achieve and tries her upmost to get around that figure.

She keeps in contact and returns call which is fantastic. Laura, her assistant is an asset to the business. She is very friendly, helpful and always delivers.

Karen put us in touch with Janet a mortgage advisor from Corniche Financial Services, she was fantastic and made the application very fast and efficient.

Karen, Laura and Janet… What a brilliant team!!

We would highly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone selling a house.

Jean & Tony Barnes - Gleneagles:

Many thanks for your recent help, consideration and the professionalism of your team. We had previously employed another agency for many months without any success but with your guidance and connections you not only helped us sell but also helped negotiate the purchase of another property we had set our hearts on. Excellent service and fully deserving of our gratitude.

Ian & Lesley Swailes - Thornton Avenue:

Karen did more in 7 days than a leading high street agent did in 7 months, getting us viewings and a consequent sale within 5 days. She talks a good talk but... she delivers!

Karen is in contact with you every step of the way and goes that extra mile to make you feel you are the only person she is dealing with. Straight talking, shoot from the hip, no nonsense, say it as it is, just the way we like it, and how it should be!

Laura, Karen’s assistant is exceptional, always cheery and efficient keeping you posted with all that is going on with your sale.

Moving house is very stressful, but Karen and Laura will make it a smooth and as stress free process as possible.

Karen Ritchie Estates

We have already recommended Karen Ritchie estates and will continue to do so. Karen is not only an extremely good estate agent, but is now considered a friend. Continue the good work, we wish you every success and thank you for all you have done for us.

Peter Greeley - Church Road:

After having my house on the market for well over 2 years with two of the North West’s larger estate agents I decided in April of this year to call Karen Ritchie estate agents to see if I could give my house sale a fresh impetus.

I had heard a lot of good comments about this dynamic new independent agent and after inviting Karen around to value my property and then put it on the market I was delighted to have a sale agreed within a few short weeks!

Throughout the process I have been extremely impressed with the way Karen, Laura and the team have communicated to me every update concerning the sale – all the way up to the completion date.

I would highly recommend Karen Ritchie estates to anyone who has had their house on the market for a while and is feeling tired of waiting for a sale.

Julie - Torver Drive:

Having Karen take over the sale of my home was the best decision I have made! After being with another high street Estate Agent for nearly three years with no sale!! New board up immediately and within two weeks had viewers and finally it was sold. Karen is easy to talk to and straight to the point. Karen's right hand woman Laura is very helpful and friendly and keeps you fully informed especially when it's the first time I have sold a property! I have already recommended Karen Ritchie Estate through my business! Thank you for all your hard work.

Tetbury Drive:

Sadly, my sister and I found ourselves having to deal with our late mother’s estate.  We used a ‘recommended’ estate agent and trusted them to deal with all aspects of selling her home.  9 months later, having no viewings, no feedback, no emails/phone calls we decided to switch to Karen Ritchie Estates.

All we can say is WOW, within 5 minutes of meeting Karen, you feel like you’ve known her forever!  She is ‘down-to-earth’, warm, friendly and honest and you immediately feel like you’re in safe hands.  She kept us informed of all enquiries/viewings (we probably spoke to her at least twice a week) and recommended how to market the property to its best advantage.

Within one week we had two viewings and completed the sale in just 11 weeks – fabulous!  We cannot thank her (and Laura) enough for the way they dealt with every aspect of the sale.  

Karen Ritchie Estates

Karen shows sensitivity, warmth and professionalism yet still maintains that closeness you would normally expect from a true friend.  She even recommended a solicitor who turned out to be a true gem (thanks Sue).

If you ever need to sell your home, please don’t waste your time with other Estate Agents, get yourself to Karen Ritchie Estates – you WILL NOT be disappointed.

Ray & Val Coward - Eastbourne Grove, Heaton:

We just want thank you both most sincerely for the way you have helped us through the very trying experience of selling our house. We had had the house on the market with two other agents for nearly two years - but you sold it for us within four weeks of taking over as our agents.  As you will remember we were in Cornwall when you first introduced the buyer to our property. We really apreciated the way you kept us in touch with developments over that week. Once 'sold' you were with us every step of the way through the legal process. Frankly, we don't know how we would have got through it without your support. All is much appreciated and we take this opportunity of wishing you as your business progresses.

Mr. S - New Hall Lane:

Thank you for all your hard work and expertise in handling the sale of our property. Laura in the office was extremely efficient and friendly and your  professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile ensured that what was at times a very difficult sale could be brought through to completion.

Again many thanks and we look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

Kind regards,
Mr. S of Heaton.

Eunice Scholes - Ivy Road:

Dear Karen,

A few months ago when I decided I needed to sell my house, I was filled with trepidation. I had only been in touch with two estate agents during the last 49 years.

As a widow, I needed an agent that I would feel at ease with, so I got in touch with Karen Ritchie Estates.

Karen has been with me every step of the way, explaining to me anything I didn’t understand and offering me encouragement.

I could keep in touch whenever I felt the need to, if she wasn’t in the office, Laura re-laid my concern and Karen always got back in touch.

Thank you Karen for being with me from step one to the final conclusion.

Dave and SallyAnne Sharples - Thornydyke Ave:

One last letter from Thornydyke before we move!! This is just a big thank you for all you and Laura have done for us during our house sale. We had been with another estate agent for nearly 12 months and kept being told, the house will sell. You told us that and you were right!!

You took charge of everything, showing the buyers round etc and loads of good hints on how to sell our house. When we got stressed out, you calmed us down and your positivity and cheerfulness got us through some dark days when things were getting fraught. You kept us informed every step of the way and helped make, what can be a very stressful  process,  go smoothly.

I have already recommended you and your firm to several of our friends who are thinking of moving, and will continue to tell people what a superb service you provide.

 

Karen Ritchie Estates

You know, I might have to keep ringing you for a few weeks to keep in touch!! (Joking Laura!).

Gary Wild  - Hughes Street:

Having had the property let out for 5 years following full renovation, 2 tenants later the property needed serious re decoration and dressing for presentation to offer for Sale.

Our Daughter who is responsible for dressing the displays in our bathroom and Kitchen retail showroom took on the task.

The house was decorated throughout, blinds, pictures and ornaments chosen to compliment her furniture. On completion she moved in the house until the house was sold.

We arranged for Estate Agents to view the property for the sale.

Karen Richie conducted the consultation herself, but not only wandered around the property nodding her head saying how nice it looked and then giving an indication of the price, she took photos, measurements and discussed the strengths of each room in a difficult market.

Karen Ritchie Estates

We have over the years sold a few properties with agents asking us to conduct the viewings, if staff were not available. Karen insisted she conduct viewings as the people feel more open to express their concerns when considering purchasing.

We then appointed Karen Richie Estates and throughout the process, with surveyors, solicitors and purchasers up to the final completion we were kept informed.

We will highly recommend Karen Richie Estates.

Paul & Sarah - Westminster Road:

We would like to thank you all for the help and support during the sale of our house. This was our first time selling so was a scary time for us, but Karen’s experience and advice was very reassuring. Having received an offer on the property in under two weeks, Karen certainly did what she said she would and she sold our house.

Karen went above and beyond what we expected of her and we are so thankful we chose Karen Ritchie Estates.

Thank you,

Mr & Mrs Gilmore:

Having had our house on the market for approximately 22 months with two other estate agents, we decided to give Karen Ritchie a chance to sell it for us and we are so glad we did, because within two months our house was sold. We found her personal service excellent and nothing was too much trouble for her or her assistant Laura. We would highly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone selling their property.

Lyn Thompson - Bradshaw Brow, Bradshaw, Bolton :

A new kind of estate agent and for all the right reasons

Karen has sold my property within four weeks of signing to her, unlike a the previous agent who I had it with for over twelve months.

Karen gives a unique service that I can only say other agents could learn from. Total personal service, Karen really knows the market, is honest, realistic

Karen and her team go that extra mile and really care about getting the right result for their client.

I would recommend Karen to anyone selling and I would definately use her services again, no other estate agent in my opinion comes close to the professional but personal touch they have shown.

Fleet Street:

Karen did it for us!

After 2 1/2 years of trying to sell our house with two of the larger agents in this area we decided to try Karen Ritchie estates. Her bright presentation and the fact that Karen advertised regularly in the local paper we felt we were doing the right thing. Karen has a personal hands on approach to selling houses and within a matter of weeks she had a buyer for our house. If you’re thinking of selling your home then try Karen Ritchie first, with the experience she has gained working for larger companies and her ever so polite receptionist Laura she is a super estate agent

Wendy and Jimmy Parkinson - Lever Edge Lane:

Firstly I would like to personally thank both Karen and yourself, Laura for all the help, contact and professionalism shown to myself and my husband during the sale of our property.

Our house sold within two weeks of Karen putting it on the market!  We had three viewings, all conducted by Karen herself, in the two weeks, and received two offers!

Karen is enthusiastic, truthful and really wants your property to sell.  

She explains how to present your house in the best possible light, what to do and what not to do to give the right impression to a potential purchaser.

Karen made us feel safe in her hands and that the advice she gave was correct and personal to my husband and I.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Every viewing and phone call was followed up with an e mail confirming the details discussed.

I would highly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone wanting to sell their property quickly and efficiently.

Karen has a rare gift of making you and your home feel special to her.

Once again many thanks for all your help and support over the last few weeks, it has been much appreciated.

Jane & Chris Coyne - Breightmet Drive, Breightmet, Bolton :

What can I say about Karen Ritchie estates, other than amazing. We had our house up for sale for four months with another agent, and did not have one single viewing, we did not even receive a welcome phone call from a large well-known agency (maybe too large to care for their clients!).

We joined Karen Ritchie Estates, we immediately received what felt like one-to-one service. We had a viewing in our first week!! And by our third viewing we had received an offer of sale. We were constantly kept up-to-date with interest and offers on our property, Karen has even suggested solicitors and advice on the type of property we are looking at buying.

Karen has put us in touch with a mortgage advisor Des, who is so lovely, he also has kept us informed of deals on offer. We have felt that although Karen is a busy estate agent, we feel we are her only clients, and have received impeccable service. If Karen cannot get to us Laura in the office is always available for help and advice.

Karen Ritchie Estates

Thank you very much to Karen and her team and wish them much success for the future, if you continue to treat clients as you have treated us you will find yourself to be an amazing estate agent and your business will flourish.

Dan & Christina Sculthorpe - Stanley Road, Heaton, Bolton :

It is with great pleasure that I can thoroughly recommend Karen Richie Estates.

We have been attempting to sell our house for over a year, with two of the best well know estate agents in the Bolton area. Both of these attempts failed to produce a sale.

We then switched our estate agent for the third time to Karen. Karen is a warm and friendly person who explains everything in detail, giving advice and honest opinions on the property, the market and valuations. Within a week of changing estate agents we obtained marketing material and more importantly viewings. The viewers were all in a position to purchase, checked and validated by Karen herself. Karen conducted all the viewings on the property in person, sometimes spending over an hour discussing with the potential purchasers the property and its values. This was not uncommon and we continued to have more and more viewings on the property as time progressed. Karen ensured that the property was marketed correctly and that there was continual interest.

Karen Ritchie Estates

In less than 2 months Karen has not only personally conducted all of the business with our property, but also completed the sale.

Karen has been nothing short of perfect when dealing with the sale of our house, she is always approachable, available via phone at all times, gives open and honest feedback about viewings and other aspects to do with the sale but above all she is personable friendly and honest.

We both thank Karen for completing the sale of our house, it has made us both extremely happy.
