I’m Claire Roberts, I am an independent estate agent helping people just like you to sell their Yorkshire home and move on to the next chapter of their life. I’ve had terrible experiences in my past dealing with estate agents and that’s why I knew I wanted to be different.
I am a busy Mum to Chloe and Edward and along with my husband Darren (although he likes to stay in the background!), we are the proud owners of Rutley Clark, a bespoke estate agency specialising in selling unique homes across Yorkshire.
I am mad about property, and when deciding to make some changes in our lives, when my children were very small, I decided to combine my passion with running our own business which also gave me more flexibility for spending time with my family. We spent five years working with a national estate agency franchise before deciding to do things a little bit differently and opening Rutley Clark – focussing on unique homes in Yorkshire.
Rutley Clark, are a straight-talking Yorkshire Estate Agency with years of experience. We don’t have a high street branch because we believe we should visit clients, although you are welcome to pop by to our lovely out of town office any time you like. We don’t have a shop window, because we know that the majority of property searching is done online, but we still provide an exceptional, personal and dedicated service reducing the pressure of moving home for our clients.
I will be your personal agent, on hand throughout to make sure you stay stress free and able to continue running the rest of your life. All you have to do is decide where you are going to live next!
Our passion is evident in how we present homes. Our unique approach leaves no stone unturned. Our marketing strategy focuses on how unique your home is and how we can reflect that value to potential buyers.
We are completely flexible and always try our best to work with you around your busy schedules, including out of hours support. We carry out all viewings for you and provide feedback which you can then apply.
We pride ourselves on our local knowledge of Yorkshire property, covering areas from Morley, Gomersal and Driglington across to Rothwell, Oulton and Wrenthorpe and down to Sandal, Horbury and Ossett. But we have been known to go as far as Harrogate, York and Sheffield!
Our service is as unique as your home. We will be there to hold your hand every step of the way.
What Our Customers Say
Now that I have had a chance to sit back and reflect on the past 12 months or so I wanted to thank you for your time and effort in selling Woodside. The information leaflet you sent out to me back in April was a defining moment in selling the house as without it I wouldn’t have emailed you and the house may still not have been sold.
You’re positivity, attention to detail, enthusiasm and professionalism was second to none. I would also like to mention Indiana, Adrian & Sarah for the part they have played, the photos, brochure and write up were fantastic and it shows that together you make a good team.
So, from myself and all my family, I would again like to say a huge thank you to you all, especially yourself Claire and if I ever need the services of an estate agent you would be my first port of call without question, you are a credit to your profession.
Nigel & Denise
If I could I would give Claire 6 stars.
Claire is extremely professional and proficient in all aspects of the Estate Agency process and without doubt goes the ‘extra mile’.
She has now sold two of my properties that were, to say the least, ‘challenging’ proposals. We tried several high street multi branch estate agents that were deplorable compared to the service we received from Rutley Clarke.
Claire cares about you, your house, the photographs, the advertising and even gets involved with surveyors and the legal fraternity, chivvying them on. All in all the best estate agent I have used.
Thank you for your help Claire.
Wow, what a service! I have literally just completed on my house sale with Claire of Open House. I’ve never sold a property before and was daunted by it all to say the least. I interviewed a few of the main estate agents, then Claire. There was no comparison at all. The main EA’s didn’t ask any relevant questions and didn’t even have an idea of the ideal selling price. As soon as I met Claire, I knew she was right for me. Claire asked everything, answered everything and had done her research on my property before we even met. The process has been smooth, slick and most of all personal. Claire has gone out of her way to contact me every other day to update me on the progress. I’m so happy and will be recommending her where-ever I go! I hope to stay in touch with such a lovely and professional lady! THANK YOU!
Claire was easy to contact and quick with responses and really helped us through the house buying and selling process and kept me calm…ish! Everything that was under her control she was great with.. and helped where she could with others! Thank you again!
