Dear Richard I really can't speak highly enough about you and your team. Both yourself and Louise went beyond the call of duty to enable the completion of my new home to take place. I can't tell you how much I appreciated it. Thank you both so much. Four years ago I dealt with a young guy called Daniel at Balgores. He had just started working for you and his attitude and caring way made him stand out. I remember emailing the office to commend him. I have since met him and I am plea...

Khaleesha and Louise were so helpful during our first time purchase. They were very efficient, always replied to every single e-mail/phone call right away, and fixed all issues straight away. They are very clear and responsive and most helpful agents I have ever seen. From the first day at the viewing when I saw Khaleesha, she put a big smile on my face and I knew that the buying process would be nice and easy. Recommend her and Louise to everyone 100% ! The best team ever....

Mandy at Balgores has been fantastic! I have been buying via Balgores so no formal contract with them, however she has gone above & beyond to chase down my sale as my agents were useless.

There was no arrogance, just enthusiasm and passion to get the sale whilst having our best interests at heart. I will definitely be recommending Balgores (Kish) to my friends!...

Thoroughly impressed with Kish's professionalism and proactivity in selling our property. We had already previously tried (and failed) (miserably) with another agency and half expected that giving to a new agent in the same area we'd find it difficult trying to generate interest. Kish went all out and secured more viewings in the first couple of weeks that the previous did in 6 mths. He worked hard in finding and securing the best deal for our mum's home and understood the emotional attachment w...

I can't thank both Khaleesha and Louise at Balgores enough for their help with the sale of my flat. The initial advertisement and viewings of the property were arranged really quickly by Khaleesha with a buyer being found from one of the very first viewings. As the sale progressed Louise and Khaleesha both made sure the sale continued to move forwards, constantly chasing the solicitors on both sides, as well as keeping me updated and quickly responding to any worries or questions I made have ha...

We recently purchased a new home in Upminster and received a first class service from the entire team at Balgores. We had a few hitches along the way but Khaleesha was always on hand and proactive in trying to help. It felt like we were in very safe hands and that she wanted us to get the house as much as we did. I should also mention Richard who came to conduct the valuation on our property - professional and personable at all times. He even helped me to use the fax machine in store at the 11th...

I found Louise to be extremely efficient, polite and helpful. When you're at the somewhat stressful stage of needing a sales progressor and you need answers you want to speak directly to a person and not be waiting for hours for someone to return a call. There's nothing more frustrating than constantly encountering an answerphone (which I've experienced with another agent) Out of the numerous times I rang Louise there were only two occasions when I encountered her answering machine and even the...

Louise worked so very hard to get us to completion. Nothing was too much trouble.

We instructed Kish who is now based in the Upminster branch of Balgores to sell our property in Upminster. We had four estate agents round to explain their service and no one came close to the ammount of detail and preparation that went into his presentation. He came prepared with properties which had sold in the area and explained in detail why the price of my property was actually £20K less than I thought. To my frustration, I couldn't help but agree with him as it was all laid out in fr...
