Estate agency and lettings is a people business .... not a property business Selling, buying or letting a house is not all about "bricks and mortar" it's about people. That's why, because we are a family run business, we provide a personal service that puts the property seller, landlord, buyer or tenant first. We believe in exceeding our clients’ expectations and nothing but the highest level of customer service will do. Both Debbie and myself, together with our fabulous team, want your experience and dealings with us to be stress free and a positive experience, one which will make want to come back to us time and time again.

.. but don’t take our word for it ... here is what some of our clients have said....

Ribble Valley Hog Roast

I can't praise Deborah and her team enough for what they have done for me over the past few years. I contacted Deborah in regard to renting my house within the month the photos had been taken and my house was on, then within 2 months I had 12 applicants and together the right applicant was found. I have successfully rented my house out for over 3 years without any issues and now it is on the market and I have my first viewing. I really can't praise the team enough

Mark Stewardson

We recently sold our property through Ainsworth Lord Estates & always had excellent service. All the staff has a professional manner and communication was great, from my initial inquiries through to the sale completion. I would highly recommend Ainsworth Lord Estates.

Gareth Ashford

I am extremely satisfied with the service provided by Ainsworth Lord Estates. My previous letting agents were appalling at managing the property Which I rented, They never dealt with any issues raised or problems with the house. Ainsworth was not only fantastic during the letting process But they are also great and very responsive When dealing with any issues (of which are few) with the property I rent now. Absolutely brilliant team I would highly recommend their services to anybody wishing to rent in the local area. They are not only fantastic business people they are also very charitable within the community.

Amanda Ryan

Rented my first ever house of this company, they were really helpful. Me and my partner after twelve months decided to buy a new build, Ainsworth Lords were really helpful and they were really cooperative when my new build was delayed and I had to extend my contract by a month or so. Overall a great experience renting for the first time.

Paul Whitfield

Ainsworth-Lord not only keeps you informed as you go through the sale process but are always on your side. They offer realistic valuations and the team is professional and cares about you as a genuine customer, not just another sale. They kept us informed every step of the way in a professional manner. I would highly recommend Ainsworth Lord to anyone looking for a fast, stress-free house sale experience.

Richard Keeling

Fantastic estate agents, very professional service. Very helpful and polite staff with a good personality which is always nice to come across.
They sold my house within 3 weeks of it being listed with them, excellent write-up on the marketing side of things, and superb photos which did the house proud.
Thank you for your help.
Highly recommended, the best one in Darwen!

Robert Taylor

Needed a house to rent at very short notice - ALE sorted me out the same day. From my first encounter with them, I have been impressed with their professionalism and speed. I would have been able to move in 3 working days after my initial contact (although I chose to wait until the weekend instead).
On my day of moving in, I noticed the boiler was faulty - the maintenance department answered immediately, and an engineer was arranged at no cost to me. Absolutely faultless.

Jessica Charles

I have to say, it makes a refreshing change to come across an agent that understands me and my needs as an investor!

I have used several letting agents over the years in various parts of the country, but finding one that understands how the mindset of an investor works in the property business is like trying to find a needle in a haystack! I believe I have found that needle!!!

John Kenny

My experience with Ainsworth Lord Estates has been nothing short of fantastic. When I moved into the property I was given all the help I needed to settle in, including a new cooker I can thoroughly recommend AINSWORTH to keep up the reliable service.

Gary Groocock

Just want to say a big thank you to the Ainsworth lord estate team for their excellent service in selling my house always going the extra mile been using them for the past 2years buying and selling

Beth Seymour

Every member of staff bent over backwards to help speed up the process for me. I have found them polite, cheerful & very laid-back, which helped make the whole experience easy & stress-free! Thank you!

Philip Stewardson

Ainsworth Lord is definitely the 'go-to' agent for Darwen and surrounding areas. We have received a first-class service both with the purchase and selling of properties along with an excellent management service of investments we hold in that area. We can invest without worrying, knowing that our properties are professionally managed.

Ian Brown

Would recommend to anybody. Not only were they very efficient in setting up house viewings for the ones i picked out myself, but they also kept a keen eye on the market and offered me houses I had missed myself that matched my specific needs. All the staff have been helpful throughout the process, especially Deborah and Lisa who were more than happy to help whether on the phone or face to face in the office.

Brent Davies

Excellent service, I would recommend Debbie, and her staff to anyone in Darwen or the surrounding areas. I rent a property in the Darwen area, and am very happy with the service they provide, always happy to help with any problems. Over the Xmas period I had problems with heating and hot water. The team had this sorted within a few hours. I hope to buy in the next year, and I wouldn't hesitate using Debbie and the team. keep up the good work.

Steven Harris

If you want an honest reliable agent then choose Ainsworth Lord Estates I have never met such genuine people. They were the most helpful and got me over the asking price for my property. I received feedback after every viewing and once the sale started was given an update every week on how it was progressing. Very professional and highly recommended. I will definitely be using the agent again and I would also like to say you do wonderful things for the community. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

Mrs and Mrs Lowe

Sheila and Keith Lowe had not one property but two to sell - so a double challenge for Ainsworth Lord Estates.

Says Sheila, “We have dealt with other agents – and I have to say that this time everything went just as it should with Ainsworth Lord Estates.

Our Cemetery Rd property sold in eight and we got the price we wanted. The other property in Melville Rd was sold in a few months, but again everything went very well and we got the price we wanted".

Beth Collins

Beth just couldn't get her 5-bedroom semi-detached home in Primula Drive, Darwen sold – but as soon she called in Ainsworth Lord Estates it was sold in a matter of days. Ainsworth Lord Estates were instructed on the property on October 5th and had an agreed offer by November 2nd.

"Our previous agent had our house for 16 weeks and nothing happened. It took Ainsworth Lord Estates less than a month to sell it."

Mr Ian Pearson

"In under two weeks my rental property was sorted. A tenant had been found, they'd been taken on a viewing, qualified to be sure they were a good paying tenant and they were moved in – everything was so good – and really quick.

I had not used a lettings agent before – but I will use Ainsworth Lord Estates from now on."

Melbrook Construction

"Ainsworth Lord Estates lettings service has been absolutely vital to us in ensuring that all our properties are kept rented and also well managed on a day to day basis without any problem. They are excellent at marketing for tenants and our properties are almost always let."
