The reputation we have built during that time has been founded on the provision of a high quality service to buyers and sellers alike. The following reviews are a sample of some of the comments made by clients and customers. We hope their kind words help to demonstrate what makes Mansbridge & Balment the preferred agent for the majority of property sellers in this area.

Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    Strongly Recommend
    Richard did initial pricing of property and was very pleasant but business like. Took his time to ensure had all information without it feeling like third degree Good communication by Rachel so I always knew what was happening, even if it was nothing!. Vicky did all viewings so my house cat would not be stressed - she made friends with him on first visit so I had piece of mind. Good team work between staff, always made time for me when I popped in. Made a stressful process very easy and smooth. Strongly recommend - A. I.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Willing to go the extra mile
    I was very pleased with the service we received from Mansbridge and Balment. They were very professional, courtious and willing to go that extra mile for us. We sold 11 new homes through them and they were so helpful in carrying out viewings, providing feed back and providing sensible marketing suggestions. I would recommend them as an agent to any one - R.N.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Lovely sales leaflet
    Very helpful in getting property on market, with lovely sales leaflet and advice in making the property look appealing to buyers. Unfortunately the property was on the market for a very long time (15 months) and I had turned down initial offers hoping to get more, but ended up selling it for much less the following year. I would have liked better advice from them about an appropriate price and offer in the first place, although I understand it is difficult in this current sales climate. All the staff at the office (especially Rachel) were extremely helpful in showing the house and chasing potential buyers, and I am grateful for their polite, calm and helpful manner even when I was very stressed! - L.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Friendly and helpful
    All staff I met were very professional, friendly and exceptionally helpful. They were patient and positive throughout even when solicitors\' delays dragged out proceedings. Very impressed - K.
  • Seller Testimonial

    In tune with us
    My sisters and I were absolutely delighted with the very personal approach adopted by Rachel (and indeed several other of the very friendly but professional people who work at Mansbridge, Tavistock). We were updated very regularly and therefore felt that our chosen Estate Agency was in tune with us. Many thanks to all for their help in selling our late parents\' property. We would recommend you guys to anyone! - A.A.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Fantastic from start to finish
    The agents from the Tavistock branch were fantastic from start to finish for the sale of my property. With regular communication and so helpful with the whole process.

  • Seller Testimonial

    Friendly and efficient
    We sold our property through this agent in a difficult Market. At all times they were professional, friendly and efficient. The sales team especially Jan and Vicky were extremely professional and conducted viewings in a very positive manner. Rachel then made the actual sale process smooth and very easy for us. We would definitely use them again and highly recommend them - L. & D.R.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Positive advice
    Initially overvalued property, but prepared to renegotiate commission rate when this became apparent. Very good communication, positive advice, quick answers to questions. Secured a fair price in a difficult market - H.W.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Great from start to finish
    Our experience with M & B was great from start to finish, we were guided through the process and kept informed at all stages. The sale of our house was stressful at times but we felt supported by Rachel who went out of her way to help us. I would have no reservations about recommending Mansbridge and Balment in Tavistock. A.A.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Smoothest purchase and sale of all agents
    We have both bought and sold from M&B - they are professional, friendly, helpful and gave 100% to both our purchase and sale. I have personally bought 15 properties and can honestly say M&B have made the purchase and sale the smoothest experience of all. Barrie and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Particular thanks to Jade, Vicky and Louise. C.S.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Professional and proficient
    The whole selling service was professional and proficient from the initial valuation, survey, preparation of literature ,booking and conduct of viewings and final negotiations to ensure satisfactory closure of a deal acceptable to both parties.

Testimonials from Buyers

  • Buyer Testimonial

    All of the staff were top class
    Dealt with both Tavistock and Yelverton offices, all of the staff were top class, very easy to deal with nothing a problem, always kept you informed, and on the ball - B.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Nothing too much trouble
    Myself and my fiancé have just purchased our first home through Rachel and I can not recommend her highly enough! Nothing was ever too much trouble, answered every silly and probably pointless little question we had and always responded to any calls or emails quick as a flash. She made the whole experience so much less stressful than we\'d anticipated. I\'d recommend her to anyone and hope that when we move again one day that we\'re fortunate enough to use her again! Thankyou! - M.B.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Very thorough service
    Very thorough service from Jan and Rachel with a personal touch provided by all staff we dealt with. Dealt with all questions and issues in a timely manner with very good communication at all times - D.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Excellent service
    Our long and arduous purchasing process was made much more bearable by the excellent service we received from Rachel and Jan. From house viewings and mercy dashes to check the locks on the house for insurance purposes with Jan, to many conversations and extra support from Rachel, Mansbridge staff went above and beyond the call of duty in order to help us. Their professionalism, approachability and all-round levels of care and attention to detail are outstanding and we would recommend them highly to all prospective customers - Mr. & Mrs. B.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Will definitely recommend them
    Although a stressfull process Rachel made it so much more bearable. Keeping me up to date on a regular basis even though I was the purchaser. Answered any queries I had very promptly and professionally. I can\'t rate Mansbridge & Balment highly enough. I will definately recommend them and when I sell (not for a while) I will not hesitate to use them - S.K.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Professional and focused
    Nicola was professional and focused in helping my 81 yr old mother find a suitable bungalow for her needs - on the flat, not too many steps, gas CH, enclosed garden, in good repair, neighbours not too close but not far..... was a steep order! Having looked in a 10 mile radius round Tavistock we found one just 300 m from where I live which fitted the bill. Nicola stayed in touch with me regularly - but not so much as to overwhelm me as I work full time and had other agents on the case too. She was instrumental in helping mum make the final decision to purchase the one she did by weighing up the pros and cons and encouraging her to reach the big decision - very difficult at 81!. So glad to have her so close by. Thank you Nicola
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Constant and valuable feedback

    Rachel provided constant and valuable feedback throughout what became a protracted process. She always got back to us when we called and was a reassuring voice when we felt that the deal may not progress.  T. R.

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Worldly but with intimate knowledge
    We found the agency professional, worldly, yet retaining an intimate knowledge of local conditions. Having bought two properties through them over the last two years, we have learnt that they are equally highly regarded by sellers and buyers in the area. From our initial searches to completion of purchase, the experience was positive. N.H
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Communication extremely efficient
    Staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to enable viewing of the property at short notice. Communication was extremely efficient and all issues were dealt with swiftly and effectively with all parties involved. Mrs. G.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Friendly, courteous, efficient & knowledgeable
    Mansbridge and Balment provided us with most excellent support in our search for a property. From the outset we found them friendly, courteous, efficient and knowledgeable. They were very proactive in providing information on properties that might interest us, working hard to identify suitable houses and not wasting time offering us properties that did not fit our criteria. They were very \'joined up\' in their approach; Peter, Jade, Vicky, Nicola, Rachel, Richard and other members of the team all took an interest in our search and worked collaboratively to find us a house. Viewing appointments were efficiently arranged and punctually kept. When viewing we were given sensitive, well-informed non-pushy support. There is a real sense of \'family\' about the Mansbridge and Balment team while at the same time being a thoroughly professional estate agency. Buying or selling we would have no hesitation in approaching them first. B.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Gave 100% to both purchase and sale.
    We have both bought and sold from M&B - they are professional, friendly, helpful and gave 100% to both our purchase and sale.

  • Buyer Testimonial

    A "can do attitude"
    Rachel always responded very promptly to my e mails. She sorted out any queries I had about the property and nothing was too much trouble. Rachel has a 'can do attitude' which really helped me through the purchase. Thanks
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Very helpful
    The agent was always very helpful and kept in touch with us on a regular basis but did not harass us when some small delays occurred in the process.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Peter Sleep did everything that could have reasonably been expected of him. We appreciate a higher offer was made for the property but are pleased that the vendor and agent decided that we could be relied upon to complete the deal quickly with the minimum amount of hassle. The couple of odd things we had to catch up on with Rachel were dealt with by her efficiently. We appreciated the box of goodies we received. It was a nice touch and the contents were carefully chosen. We expect to be teaming up with Mansbridge Balment again in the near future
  • Buyer Testimonial

    The whole office very good
    The service from the whole office was very good, they always returned our calls and answered any queries swiftly. We will recommend them to other people
