Out of 3 local agents darrell from beals came across the most realistic on the potential for selling our bungalow in the time frame required. Our first potential buyers pulled out for no apparent reason after leading both beals and ourselves on a merry dance and us meeting there requests. The second dreamer was just that but both times darrell re-focused and pushed our property back out on the market . He kept us informed all the time during this. After we found our buyer contact became scarce w...

Awful experience with this estate agents when trying to rent a property. Given poor and misleading advice by a member of staff and also encouraged to put down a large security deposit on a property to only be told a week later that they had already completed references for another potential renter prior to this and would be proceeding with them, despite the fact we had given notice on our current property! poor experience with staff who clearly only care about getting their commission...

Unfortunate experience,*. Rude and very unprofessional, tried telling me that our offer would be taken more seriously if we used their conveyancey service.

I have not had a good experience renting with Beals at all. At first it was just property maintenance that was below standard however, by the end of my tenancy, staff in branch were also completely incompetent. I had not hot water in December for over two weeks. When I complained to Maxine in property maintenance, I was told 'I was lucky to have running water'. I ended up arranging early release form the property. I was told I would be responsible for the rent until a new tenant moves in (of ...

Darrell Manchip gave us an excellent service from the beginning of the transaction to the end. It was a complicated purchase because of existing tenants, but he patiently supported us, the vendors and the tenants to reach agreement, doing far more for us than we had any right to expect. He kept us up to date throughout and responded swiftly to all our queries, liaising with the solicitors as well when necessary, and with other team members at Beals who covered him when out of the office. When...

Beaks are good if your buying a property but if your renting they are shocking. No one seems to want to help you out. I have had a leak in my roof for over 7 weeks now my items have been damaged the place stinks of mold and every time it rains my ceiling drips. It's great being woken up to water dripping on your head. Honestly this company has treated me poorly and just cares about the landlord....

We all know how much it actually costs for a reference. £1090 in fees besides rent/deposit etc to move in is an absolute joke! One does not have mug written on ones head! Very poor in my eyes....

My advice would be to steer well clear of Beals! They will charge fees for everything and do very little. They never return your calls and I have been trying to get my deposit back for ages and I am now going through the dispute service to get it back. I left the property in better condition than when I started renting it 5 years ago, said they would clean it before I moved in and never did, found out they had charged the previous tenant for it but didn't do it. If you have any maintenance issue...

Darryl attended the property for sale and I also had one other agent visit that evening. Darryl listened more and filled me with more confidence, so I selected Beals. The next evening, Darryl showed a prospective buyer around and received an offer, which we accepted. Good choice !! The journey to completion was looked after by Liz. She was very attentive and was the go between for all involved parties. Liz would always update us whenever she could and no question was left unanswered. She was ava...

How ever, Liz Parsons was the only person from start to finish who kept her word, Answers calls, always called me back, Emailed back, Kept me updated and didnt lie to me through out the entire process. On top of that she does her job perfectly with a jolly happy domineer witch is a breath of fresh air in this buying a house process. Thank You so ...

The most unprofessional, disgusting level of service imaginable! I rented a place in North end, the boiler didn't work from day one, the shower was broken, the toilet leaked on the balcony and had been leaking for months which turned to green sludge. This was still there on moving in day. The carpet had fleas and there was mould throughout the flat. I had no electric key for the pay and go meter and Matthew rudd didn't even know who provided the electric. I was left with all these problems to so...

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...
