The reason shawn left his area of expertise blank is because he lacks any expertise. He is a ignorant person who looked after me like rubbish. He is an arrogant egomaniac * and takes it out on everyone else. I will never deal with this group again as I was treated like a piece of dirt for knowing a little bit of information before hand that contradicted the lies he tried to push off on me for ore financial gain for himself...

My boyfriend and I are first time buyers and knowing where we wanted to live was easy - it was just trying to find the best house. We popped into Beals in Waterlooville and got set up for any notifications on new houses on the market - then our house popped up! Matt phoned us to tell us about it and that we'd need to act fast to get a viewing, we saw it that weekend and were the first ones to see it and put down an offer the Monday! It all was a massive world wind of excitement. We have had some...

I will always be grateful to Sean, Lucy and the Beals team for helping me to sell my flat. My first estate agent hadn't mentioned the short lease as an issue and after one week has run out of viewers. I went to see Beals to see if they could promote my property to investors and within an hour I was talking to Sean. He bluntly but accurately told me that without a lease extension all my hard work to get the flat ready for sale made no odds - it would be hard to sell. He also said he would take it...

I asked Beals if I could have a look at a flat or a studio flat, that I wanted to rent. Previous letting agents had showed me round awful properties. Matt Rudd told me about a lovely studio flat in Portsmouth in a nice location, which was important to me, as I live on my own. The flat was perfect and I have been here a month already and love it. I found Beals in North End, Portsmouth to not only be friendly and helpful, but also very professional. They kept me informed of what I had to do to ren...

I was extremely disappointed in the service I received (or not) from Beals at Hedge End. I had telephoned twice on the Monday and spoke to Barry (who was very polite and assured me had passed my telephone messages onto Lettings and they would call me back.) I then sent an online request for a call back from Lettings and had still not received acknowledgment. I rang the Office again on the Tuesday and spoke with Adrian to which he advised one of the properties was Let. I advised I would go bac...

We viewed a property that needed cleaning and maintenance and were assured that everything would be perfect for when we moved in including some specific details such as kitchen cabinet doors, carpet shampooing and repainting of an exterior door. We arrived ready to move in with a lorry load of furniture and discovered no cleaning had taken place, there was rubbish on the kitchen floor, cabinet doors missing and mould in the bathroom. We informed Beals immediately and were told that it was basica...

I recently left a property that was linked with Beals in Eastleigh. From the start I had issues with getting the paperwork or inventory agreed upon and it was given to me a month late. Throughout the year a continuous change in staff made it impossible to maintain who to contact when required. Upon leaving I was not given 24 hours notice prior to people viewing the property and had to call myself to ask why this was not the case. Finally when I left the deposit was supposed to be returned to 3 ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
The agent needs to drastically improve their communication skills across the Eastleigh branch. They need to have clear policies laid out for leaving a property. No action with deposits should be taken unless all parties on the contract have agreed to it. Need to make customers aware if there is a delay in the processing of paperwork and why. Needs to improve on communication skills when talking to customers and nothe have a nonplussed attitude.
Comment on agent fees
The house is far too expensive. It was a new build that was poorly maintained. No plumbing for a dishwasher. You were not able to have a shower in the master bathroom as the walls would have be ruined as the waterproofing ie. tiling was virtually non existent. The overall space was minimal and deceptively large when the property was empty. There was noise every night through the thin walls from the neighbours. I would say the property is only worth £750 a month.

We sold our flat within 11 days. Our solicitors were useless so Stacey stepped in on our behalf and became THE main point of contact and communication person for all parties. For the next 6 months we had a major battle with our solicitor difficulties and Stacey fighting with us on our side was invaluable. We were not left trying to get to completion on our own. He was professional at all times and having that inside professional support and intervention made a massive difference. His reassurance...

Lauren showed me around the property and was helpful and if she didn't know the answer to a question there and then she said she would get back to me with it, and she did via email/phone. I am a first time renter and found Lauren/Jess to be helpful with any queries I did have, which made my first move enjoyable! I have recently had a problem with a smel...

However since the arrival of Jess, it has been a pleasure to deal with her, i know that my property is in safe hands, she is polite, honest ( which is something that i thought i would not say about someone from an estate agent !! ) reliable and gives you the cheapest price first time, so there is no need to haggle to d...

I would recommend any landlord in the fareham area to put their property in the safe and capable hands of Jess and to any estate agents out there who are looking for someone to lead there lettings side then i would be contacting Jess to head hunt her - your not going to find anyone else any better.

A very positive experience with Beals. We initially asked Matt to come and have a look at our property back in the Spring, wanting to get an idea of rent, fee's etc. We were not yet in the position to go ahead with the rental but wanted some advice as we were new to the rental market. Matt was very patient with us and allowed us the time to get our house ready for rental and didn't bombard us with communication, emails etc. He kept in contact but without pressuring us, which we appreciated.

From our first dealings with Ross Whelan we were very pleased to sell our home with Beals. Ross was thorough, knowledgeable and very likeable and most of all not all pushy. We negotiated a good price for the cost of selling and all the literature, marketing and valuation was spot on! Kept me informed at all times and we sold very quickly .

I was recently letting from Beals and have now moved on, having received my deposit back today. Firstly, they have very high fees (�480) which took a serious hit on my bank account, I'm sure this can't be the standard for other letting agents. Having got locked out of the flat at one point I contacted them to borrow a spare key and was told they didn't have one, and that I should contact the landlord. (This seems very strange that they wouldn't have a spare key for emergencies) When I pa...

The property in question was an introduction property, and as such you are obliged to pay your rent directly to your landlord as after you move in we would not have any involvement in the tenancy, and as such is the reason that we do not hold spare keys as this is not a requirement, and the landlord would take care of this. The same would go for the inventory as the landlord would have undertaken this himself. In terms of the deposit, this was returned by ourselves with in the stipulated 14 d....
