Recent Recommendations & Testimonials


We are listed on the “Which Local Magazine” readers, web site as “highly recommended”. Here are some of our recent customer comments


  • Mark Wood and his team from Charleswood Property Developments built a single story self-contained annex onto the side of our property and I am delighted with the end result. This was the first time I'd undertaken such a big building project but Mark was very professional from the start and guided me through the whole process from initial ideas, to finding an architect, to planning application etc.  Mark and his team worked extremely hard to deliver the build to my exacting standards and within my very tight deadline. I was very involved with the build and Mark always kept me informed every step of the way, he also happily answered any queries or questions I had. He even answered my phone call when I phoned him one Sunday morning! His team were punctual, professional and friendly and worked extremely hard, even through some awful weather, as the build was during winter. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark and his team for any building work and feel lucky that I found such a trustworthy, honest and reliable team for my build.  

Mrs Mary, Leeds


  • Under his company name of Charleswood Property Developments, Mark Wood project manages a team of carefully chosen labourers and craftsmen (plumber, electrician, bricklayer, plasterer, joiner, decorator, etc.).   The company’s work is of an excellent standard, as I discovered when they worked on my house over a period of about 5 weeks in the spring.  Any problems are quickly sorted out with Mark, a totally honest person who genuinely cares about customer satisfaction.  It’s wonderful to have one person to speak to about any aspect of the job.  I have no hesitation in recommending Charleswood.

Mrs Jan Wilford, York

  • We moved to York last year, our house required extensive renovation and modernisation.  Being new to the area we didn’t know anyone who could recommend a reputable builder.  So we used the Federation of Master Builders website and contacted Charleswood Property Developments.  We spent quite some time with Mark discussing and planning the work, which was eventually carried out in two main phases to our complete satisfaction.  We have also used him more recently for other, relatively minor issues.  We would not hesitate to use him again, or to recommend him to others.  The reasons for this are as follows:  He only uses trusted, quality tradesmen, produces a plan of action from the outset, explains everything clearly, keeps in regular contact, and produces an itemised invoice on completion.  Above all, knowing Mark is contactable and responsive after completion gives peace of mind. 

Mr & Mrs Castle, York


Quality and Service


We engaged Charleswood Property Developments to carry out a range of repairs and renovations to our house and have been delighted at the quality of work and level of service. The workmen were skilled and took pains to do a good job. They were reliable, coming when they said they would and keeping us informed of progress. Their courtesy also made them very easy to deal with.


The work came in on budget and the costs were clearly explained beforehand so we have no hesitation in recommending Charleswood Property Developments and we will be using them again.


Mrs Armstrong. Leeds


Mark and his team have just completed a kitchen diner renovation, outhouse conversion, and removal of a chimney and the creation of a new downstairs toilet for us. From the initial contact and throughout the 5 weeks of building work Mark kept us fully informed at every step of the way. His communication skills are outstanding and always replied to any phone call, email or text really quickly. This alone puts him in a league of his own. We are delighted at the finished product and have been very impressed at the professionalism of all the trades’ people he engaged. Work was finished within agreed timescales, fully costed and to a very high standard. We would, without hesitation, highly recommend Mark and his team and will happily ask him to undertake any work we might plan in the future.
Gerard and Jess. York


Thank you for a job well done, we are delighted with it. We had precise costs and knew what was to be done before work started. We met all your men who arrived on time on the day, did a super job and cleared the site before leaving. To cap it all you drafted in extra help who finished the work whilst we were out for the day to save us a further day’s disruption.


We will use your services again and certainly recommend your services to others.

Peter & Margaret.  Northallerton


Mark Wood and his team are trustworthy, reliable, considerate and hard working.
Mark prepared a realistic, achievable and flexible plan for the installation of a new bathroom; internal doors and repair work to our garage roof.
Mark consistently resolved issues promptly and effectively. The team clearly took pride in their work and demonstrated flexibility and tenacity when dealing with unexpected challenges.
We are very pleased with everything and can highly recommend Mark and his team."

Best regards.
Richard & Anne Sykes. Haxby

Overall, I am very happy.  I was impressed on the timely arrival and co-ordination of all the guys who attended the job. A very good set of guys and a professional job. Let me have your invoice and I will pay promptly.

J Barker Easingwold


"Once we had decided we wanted an extension to our house the next stage was how to find a good builder.  We’d never done anything like this before so were a little nervous.  We started with the FMB website and put contact details on there.

We had quite a few responses and saw about 6 people all together, having whittled it down to 3 over time we decided on Charleswood Property Services.  Our decision was based on really good communication, a real interest in what we wanted, the advice given and the questions asked.

The extension is now finished and we are delighted with it.  The extension blends in seamlessly with the rest of the house, down to the type of bricks, stones and the design work. The attention to detail by the building team was brilliant.

We are considering more work to the house but will have to go to planning firstly and we will use Charleswood Property Services again.

R Howden. Tadcaster




Charleswood Property Services developed a first floor extension to our house.  The work was competitively priced, started and completed on schedule and was finished to a high standard.  The staff on-site were friendly, courteous and delivered the build taking into account our need, with a young family, of maintaining access to a functioning kitchen, washing machine etc.  Someone from the company was on site every day (which I was pleased with, as I’d heard stories of builders stopping/starting jobs) and visible progress was always made.   Mark, the proprietor, kept in regular contact and updated me on changes to plans etc. and made regular checks that the work was progressing.  We are delighted with the end product and I would highly recommend Charleswood Property Services to other people requiring building services

M Peters. York
