Mr B, Residential Client
Hi Tim, I would like to say how very impressed I have been with you and your colleagues. You have all made what could have been a very emotional process much easier to handle, and it is very much appreciated. Many thanks
Mrs R, Residential Client
My wife and I have used the professional services of Robin Jessop to sell two very different properties in Wensleydale .The properties were a two bedroom bungalow in Worton and a renovated rural farm property between Askrigg and Hardraw requiring distinctly different pricing and marketing strategies.Tim Gower and his team showed great skill and professionalism in giving accurate advice on market value and both properties were sold within a month at the asking prices agreed.Throughout the process the team communications between us and the staff at Robin Jessop (and between staff members) was excellent .The level of negotiations with the purchasers taken up by Tim Gower was dealt with in an efficient,professional and effective way and made the whole experience stress free from the vendors perspective. We have lived in many parts of the UK over the last 50 years and bought and sold eleven houses through many estate agents both national and local and our experience in using Robin Jessop has been the best ; working with the vendor to achieve a successful outcome with the minimum of stress and worry
Mr & Mrs H, Residential Client
We bought a beautiful Georgian Manor House from Robin Jessop Ltd and had the pleasure of dealing with Tim Gower in the Leyburn office. The transaction had to be completed in a very short time frame and was challenging and complex with a number of parties involved. Tim could not have been more helpful, going above and beyond our already high expectations, and navigating us through a process that without his help and expert guidance could have failed multiple times. Our dream house in the dales is now largely ours due to Tim and we cannot thank Tim enough for making this happen.
Mr & Mrs M, Residential Client
A little belatedly I thought I would drop you a line to thank you for handling this sale. It took some tenacity to finally get this over the line, so thanks for sticking with it.
Mr F, Residential Client
Thank you for your assistance with this matter so far. Both myself and Marie have commented on the fact we have been impressed with the speed and quality of the report, both when submitting the initial draft and providing any additional info we have asked for!
A Private Banker, Valuation Client
Thank you Tim and Team. We are really pleased with your support. Professionalism, timely marketing and always very supportive with any queries. We would not hesitate to recommend you. Hoping we won’t be moving for a while but if that changes we will call!!!
Mr & Mrs L, Dales Residential Client
We really appreciate your whole teams’ efforts on our behalf and we will finally be able to move on with our lives – may be even buy another house!
Mr & Mrs S - Dales Residential Client
Thank you for handling this matter so well and with such efficiency and respect.
Mr & Mrs P - Agricultural Clients
Dear Robin, i want to thank you and your staff for the successful completion of our Farm last week. We had over 100 viewings, which exemplifies your expertise on marketing! It was a long journey and quite complex due to the the legal issues but your help, advice and support at every stage in the process was incredibly valuable. Particularly in the final stages, choosing from the offers, a family who would carry forward the traditions and a happy home for children and contribute to on going village life, your guidance as to the correct process was invaluable. The thoroughness of the financial vetting of prospective purchasers was also incredibly helpful. Thank you once again and i would recommend your services to anyone wishing to sell a farm or land.
Sincere best wishes Rev. S - Agricultural Client
Hello Sam! We have exchanged contracts today. Very happy with how our sale went. We have loved living at our property. We are both gardeners and missed our gardening. So we are looking forward to our new home. Of course you have all been amazing at Robin Jessops. You have been an absolute pleasure. Thank you again.
Mrs B - Dales Residential Client
Can we both say as buyers we found your firm to be accessible and responsive. Nothing was too much trouble and this helped both us and the Vendor to get the purchase over the line. All the best to you and the team.
Mr K - Residential Client
From the day we first inspected it - under 'Sam's infomative guidance - until receiving the final call that all legal and financial requirements were now complete and 'the Key now available' , we have found your service to be entirely satisfactory. We have dealt with various members of the staff and all have been most courteous and helpful. Thank you all, again.
Mr & Mrs M, Residential Client

I am writing to thank your firm and in particular Sam for the excellent way in which you have handelled the sale of Lenny Garth, West Burton. The service which my client received from Sam was exceptional. She has given up her own free time to try and assist.

Mrs C, Solicitor
Hi Tim, Just to say thanks again for all your efforts over Ghyll Holme. Everything was fine yesterday. We’d like to thank Mr & Mrs C for leaving it clean - even a jar of daffodils on the window ledge. I hope they’re happy in their new home and we’re looking forward to enjoying the cottage - hopefully before the summer’ ended!
Mr & Mrs B, Residential Client
Whilst it seems like it's been a long time, it was only on February 11th when you first advertised our house on the market, and given the fact that we've had lockdown for the majority of the time since then, we're amazed that we've got to this point so quickly! Thanks for all of your and your team's help.
Mr & Mrs M, Residential Client
Dear Andrew, I am embarrassed that I haven't written to you long before this, to thank you and all the sales team at Jessop's who did such a professional job at selling Lady Cross, Carlton-in-Cleveland, under farm from easy circumstances. You were spot on with your valuation of the property, and your marketing advice and strategy were very successful, in that you achieved a sale above the guide price. We are extremely grateful to you and Tabitha for your patience, perseverance and good humour over the protracted period since first instructing you. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who seeks confirmation of the standard of your service.
Mr and Mrs W, Residential Client
I recently purchased a property through Robin Jessop’s and was extremely happy with the service provided by their Leyburn office and in particular, Sam Thorp. Sam was my point of contact for the purchase and she could not have been more helpful. I was impressed with Sam’s professional approach and she managed the sale of the property very well for both the vendor and from my point of view as the purchaser. I would thoroughly recommend this estate agency
Mrs M, Residential Client
To Tim, Thank you all, Sam and Brenda for all your tireless work in selling Capple Bank. We got there in the end! You were marvelous and patience personified.
Mr and Mrs S, Residential Client
From the start I felt I had made the right choice. Tim and his team know the region like the backs of their hands and used this to provide positive and realistic advice. Despite the difficulties imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, the team were quick to respond to and tackle the various challenges that cropped up. I can recommend them unreservedly as customer-focused experts who appreciate the uniqueness of the Dales market.
Mr K, Residential Client
Great service and support to get our purchase over the line. Quick to respond to questions.Tim and Sam knew the area and did a great job. Highly recommended
Mr H, Residential Client
I recently purchased a property through Robin Jessop Estate Agents in Leyburn. House buying is never a straight forward process but Tim managed the whole process professionally and helped guide us though all the speedbumps along the way. I have bought and sold several times over the years and the service provided by the team in Leyburn was the best I have experienced. Would highly recommend their services if buying or selling.
Mr D, Residential Client
Having taken a long time to sell our house, it would not have been possible without Tim and his team. Nothing was too much trouble, and Tim’s diligence, patience and hard work paid off. We always had confidence that Tim would achieve a sale. A huge thank you for such a professional job very well done.
Mr & Mrs S, Residential Client
I just wanted to thank you and the team and say how excellent Sam was. She always returned my calls, spent time talking me through things when i could tell she was busy. She was courteous, polite and very professional. When she said she would do something she did and always got back to me, on one occasion quite late on a Friday evening. Thank you Sam!
Ms B, Residential Client
I recently used Jessop's estate Agents office in Leyburn to purchase a great house in a local village. Throughout the viewing and the weeks leading up to purchasing I found that the whole team in the Leyburn office always operated in a most professional, thoughtful and friendly manner. Any advice that I sought was offered in a similar professional manner. Between them they were able to make the enterprise as stress free as was possible. They ought to be proud of their contribution to this purchase.
Mr P, Residential Client
I would like to say how much Robin and the team have looked after us with the sale of our home, they thought of everything and gave us valuable advice.
Mrs A, Residential Client
Following a visit to our home a few months ago, even though I had not requested it, by late afternoon that day they had delivered a draft brochure showing photographs and narrative to best illustrate the house and gardens as an example of their marketing skills. Such was the presentation, I could hardly fail to be other than impressed, and I was happy to confirm our sale instructions that week. Sam and the Leyburn team have been instrumental in showing numerous visitors around our property and throughout the process have kept me fully improved of both visits and inquiries and given me the best possible service. I have every confidence in recommending them.
Mr D, Residential Client
Dear Robin Can I take this opportunity to thank you for the very competent way you handled the sale of my property and all the problems as they arose. I know we did get the right buyers in the end and they will be an asset to the neighbourhood. I am now settled into my lovely new house and enjoying life in the grand metropolis of Bedale!
Mrs B, Residential Client
Just a note to say how impressed we were with the service and professionalism of your colleague, Mitchell. Whilst on this occasion the property was not quite right for us in the end due to a few unknowns at this point, Mitchell was excellent at communicating, seeking further documents and keeping us informed.
Mr & Mrs H
Just a quick message of belated thanks for the way Tim and your team handled our sale. They were always warm and friendly while being professional in all our dealings. It was a great result for us.
Mr P, Residential Client
