About us

Wm. Sykes & Son are Holmfirth's longest established independent estate agents and auctioneers. Established in 1866, we have been trusted for generations.

Our friendly, inviting office is in the heart of the Pennine village of Holmfirth, making us perfectly placed to serve our customers in the Holme Valley and all the surrounding areas. We also regularly sell and rent properties in areas like Hebden Bridge, Ripponden, Penistone, Sheffield and beyond.

We specialise in the sale of residential and agricultural properties. We also offer an ever-expanding rental service. Wm Sykes & Son pride ourselves on being 100% independent. We are happy to recommend mortgage advisors, solicitors, architects and builders – all those people you need to have a good house move. However, we do not hold any financial partnerships, making us 100% unbiased. We offer a friendly, trustworthy, honest approach and the best advice on selling, or renting your home.



“The advice given as to how to sell our properties, and the way it was sold, meant we got a far better deal than just selling it in one lot. We are very happy with the service given.”  
Mr R Littlewood

Our property brochures and photography are second-to-none. We advertise on the top three property sites in the UK; Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation. In addition, we have a comprehensive mailing list of people looking to buy and rent. We send regular email marketing and contact potential buyers who are looking for a property that matches the details of those we are selling.

We also offer enhanced services through Prestige. Our Prestige brand has been created for properties that would benefit from additional services including professional photography, premium brochures, window displays and home staging. To find out more click here.

Our agricultural service helps local farmers with the sale of properties and livestock. We also hold regular auction sales of antiques, household furniture and effects at our sale room at Sude Hill, New Mill.
