We cannot fault the balgores team at all, allways available to answer your call and are very professional. Sarah Oakley has been amazing the whole way through, as we had a difficult time and had to pull out of our first purchase, she went above and beyond our expectations and helped us through another purchase straight away keeping everything together so we didnt lose our buyer and made it as hassle free as possible. I have had many phone calls to sarah sometimes daily and nothing was ever too m...

Many thanks to Sarah for all of her hard work on the completion of the sale of my home. From the start she has been very friendly, helpful & professional. I couldn't ask any more from her. Many thanks, Sarah! Also, thanks very much to Sophie for getting the ball rolling in the first place. Thank you for your help & professionalism on the marketing of my home. Many thanx Balgores! I'd definitely recommend your services....

This is my first review ever! But definitely wanted to write my experience to let people know. I have now dealt with Balgores twice over the last year for 2 of my properties. Both properties sold instantly!! 1st & 2nd properties were sold to the first viewers, which I was extremely happy about! Instantly, I was very happy with the service from Balgores. However, through the process of selling my first property, i.e. solicitors etc, it took its toll as you can expect with chains, but...

We trusted Balgores with the sale of our apartment and the purchase of our house and it paid off. Glenn and others on the team were excellent and professional arranging viewings etc. We finally found our dream house with Balgores. With a long chain, a lot of credit for the deal should go to Sarah..she was excellent in tracking and chasing for updates and on the case all the time..Cant thank Sarah enough for her pro activeness and support all the way through the deal! Very pleased we chose Balgor...

Stewart has provided a very profession and polite service from initial valuation to completion with regards to my late parents house. He gave an excellent insight to the service that Balgores would provide and I wasn't disappointed. Always responded very quickly to queries. He is an excellent asset and has made a significant contribution to making what is normally a tricky process, very easy. Well done I do hope the lettings division offer the same service if they act for me with my rental prope...

We had a property on the market with another agent for some time with a couple of viewing and no offers. We decided to switch to Balgores Basildon. Stewart assisted us in marketing the property and within 24 hours of being placed with Balgores the property had multiple viewing and 2 offers! I regret wasting valuable time with another agent now....

My initial experience with Balgores wasn't a good one! Until I was introduced to Sarah and thankfully she took over... being a first time buyer I hadn't a clue of the procedures and how much contact needs to be made etc. It was a huge help to have someone that was actually contactable and delivered answers. Definitely an asset to Balgores and I kept my sanity because of you! Thank you!!!...

Sarah is great. Very polite and efficient and really cared about what was going on. Sarah really did make an initial, horrible Balgores experience easily to swallow. If it wasn't for Sarah, I was close to pulling out of the deal due to the inefficiencies of another staff member who initially lied about the chain being completed and railroaded me into taking out my mortgage early to get a survey complete, only to be told 3 months in that it was actually complete, and just that he thought the end ...

We sold our house in Wickford through Balgores at the start of the year and are very happy with service received. The team continued to get viewers booked in even over the Christmas period. Post - sale they offered a fab service where one of their team takes away all the stresses of chasing up solicitors. Sarah followed up with both sets of solicitors and updated us regularly. What a great offering!! Thanks to Tim, Sarah, Sean, Glenn and the rest of the team who looked after us....

We have just sold our property with Balgores Basildon, there was a few hiccups to start with, but all was sorted out. Sean gave us the whole sales pitch, which we cannot fault him on, TOP salesman and captured us from the start (although we didn't get our glossy brochures!!....;-), after that we had viewings which were all accompanied, Glenn stood out the most, he knew our house inside out, great at selling, polite, great outgoing personality, and great time keeping.

We would like to say a big thank you to Sarah for the massive amount of time and effort she has taken to make sure that our house sale went through (finally!). She has literally spent the last nine months liaising between solicitors, buyers and ourselves chasing any holdups and making sure that we were kept informed every step of the way. She is an absolute superstar and we cannot praise her highly enough. We would also like to thank Trevor for making our house sale as smooth as it could be....

From the moment we met Tim from Balgores, considering the use of another Agent was out of the question. The appraisal valuation was thorough; Tim talked to us about our home, the sales trends within the area and provided informative advice which helped us make an informed decision as to whether to sell, rent or take no action. As such, we marketed our house with Balgores in November 2015 and a sale was negotiated within weeks. We were kept informed throughout the process and found Tim to be a...

The sale of my property completed 31 March through Balgores in Basildon. From the time I contacted them to place the property on the market, they were the height of efficiency. Documents received all promptly and emails received advising of prospective buyers with viewing appointments. The property was sold very quickly and then the lovely Sarah took over, ensuring that solicitors from both sides were all doing what they should be, chasing them up every week and then telephoning me to keep me up...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Make the concern of your tenants first and foremost important. Follow a case through and give feed back to the People do not have time chasing frivolous complaints. Employ ethnic minority into your team who would relate better to people when they phone in and have complaints. I feel almost like the staffs are very dismissive once they hear your accent on the phone. Do not rent properties that your not directly managing.

When deciding to sell my property it was essenstial that we went with an agent who could see the property for what it was, after extensive renovations the property would have had to be marketed at a sale price far in excess of any property previously sold in the area. Balgores, specifically Trevor had the vision and the belief that the property was even worth in excess of our expecations, and excelled when he managed to get us 2 full asking offers within 10 days of the property going on the mark...

This was my first property purchase, so going in I was understandably a little nervous and unsure. I didn't really know what to expect, but the team at Balgores were amazing the whole way. I never felt like I was left alone to deal with anything, I could always call and double check what I was about to sign, or what something meant if I was unsure. There were a few issues with lenders, solicitors and banks, but I never felt that it was anything that they couldn't deal with calmly and quickly. Al...
