Lonsdale Estate Agents - Profile

Skip To Content


Having been established for 19 years, we are experts in our locality and have sold 100's of properties in North Bradford and beyond. We have a great team some have been with me for over 10 years and one or two are recent to the team. Should you be thinking of selling or renting, we are your one stop shop for all your property requirements.

I am serving my second term as President of the Bradford Estate Agents this year, and have the distinction of being one of only 5 in the history of the Association to have done this.

We offer all the latest marketing with the 3 leading portals, Rightmove, Zoopla & Primelocation to secure a sale of your property as long as the property is listed at the right price. The market is showing no signs of slowdown in Bradford post Brexit, but of course the London media would have you believe it has. We are not London and thank heavens we are not. 

We now have new links to Leeds by train at the new Apperley Bridge railway station opended November 2015, and the area of Thackley and Idle is being developed with new housing, restaurants and bars bringing a new cosmopolitan feel to the area.

We are members of The Guild of Professional Estate Agents, a nationwide reputable body of fellow professional agents with morals and high standards. The Guild recognises that the internet is changing all forms of retail, just look down you local high street or city. We have adapted and kept ourselves at the forefront of the way you can sell your home. There will be less estate agents in the next 3-5 years, in some peoples opinion that would not be a bad thing. If the general public wish to pay a cheaper fee to sell then that is their perogotive and we have adapted acordingly. The way of selling a home in England is now open to a vendor with various fee structures, online up front companies, part online/hybrid, all challenging and threatening the traditional model of selling your home through an estate agent. Several household large named estate agency companies are fighting back with alternative methods. That is business, and to survive one has to adapt. 2017 will certainly be interesting for the housing market, and no doubt the exeperts will make their new year predictions once again. We like to think we are always abreast of change, and you are welcome to discuss your house sale in 2017.           

On a lighter note, the market is moving with low interest rates. Post Brexit northern cities do not seem to have been affected, with the housing market actually picking up.

Onwards and upwards, and lets be grateful for family and friends and the life we have and enjoy, without all this doom and gloom about.
