      Can thoroughly recommend Richard from the Upminster office. Fantastic service from start to finish and beyond. Not your typical estate agent because as we know, agents do not usually have a good reputation. Trustworthy, honest, reliable and straightforward. Thank you for our beautiful home. I have since been recommending Balgores to all my friends - I know they will be in safe hands.
