Okehampton branch case studies


Mansbridge Balment gave me an excellent service from start to finish. Though we were in lockdown most of the time their staff were helpful kind and friendly and made it much less stressful than it would otherwise have been. I would recommend their services to anyone. Very happy I purchased through Mansbridge Balment.


Jonathan Mansell is a credit to the company. He’s friendly, professional and always follows through with what he says he’s doing to do. He’s proactive and goes above and beyond to find out information or to ensure that things are completed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mansbridge Balment as a result.


Jonathan, Martyn and all the others were involved in what turned out to be a very protracted affair after the sale of cottage was agreed to the first person shown round it. The agents maintained contact with the purchaser as delay after delay occurred. They kept me up to date throughout and always responded to my calls. Eventually as we were about to approach another interested party the agents had found the original purchaser came through and the sale was completed 5 months after I'd accepted his offer.


Really delighted with the service and support provided by Dan Hopkins in buying the property through Mansbridge Balment. Very personable and helpful in handling all of our questions and requests for info.


We bought and sold with Mansbridge Balment and found them very helpful and efficient in a very difficult time due to Covid 19


Our experience in buying a house through Mansbridge Balment Okehampton was extremely positive. We hit quite a few problems with the purchase, and the whole team strived hard to solve the problems and keep the process moving. We especially thank Martyn, Dan, and Johnathan.Their efforts were beyond the call of duty, and they were patient, courteous and understanding of the stress we were under.


At a very stressful time these agents were very calm and extremely helpful. I think they went the extra mile chasing up mortgage companies and solicitors. Can only highly recommend. At one point I stated that they had definitely earned their commission!


Even though we were buying through Mansbridge Balment and not selling, Jonathan (at MB) was brilliant when we had a last minute hiccup with the vendors. This resulted in us moving on the day we all originally agreed instead of approximately one month later which would have been a nightmare for us.

Claire Clevely

From valuation through to completion the Okehampton team have been fantastic , keeping us up to date throughout A friendly , honest and lovely bunch !

Phillip Mallett

Mansbridge balment display traditional courtesy and customer care. I received numerous viewings and feedback promptly delivered where received. Martyn is a pleasure to deal with in closing the sale and Dan was professional and honest in his endeavours to secure the best deal.

Shirley Styles

I purchased my 1st home through Mansbridge Balment, Okehampton office earlier this year. Though dealing predominantly with Daniel I found all the staff there really helpful. I was kept up to date throughout the purchase and Daniel was always on hand to get answers to any queries I had. Even in the early stages of looking for a property I found Mansbridge Balment listened to my requirements and actually contacted me with available properties unlike several other agents in Okehampton. For me it was clear to see that the Mansbridge Balment team were very customer focused where I found all other Okehampton estate agents (except G, S&S and Bradleys) simply were not interested unless you were looking in a higher price bracket! I have no doubts about recommending the Okehampton Mansbridge Balment team, friendly, honest and professional

Stuart Rogers

We are very pleased with the service from Daniel, very efficient and always professional. We wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future and would be happy to recommend their services to others.

Vincent Haffenden

Dan Hopkins and the team have been excellent throughout the process. Friendly and professional. Always willing to go the extra step to assist the sales process

Tracy Sharpe

My husband and I found the service offered by Mansbridge Balment to be professional, efficient and at the same time personal from the very start. When we viewed the property for the first time we knew we would be asking for a second viewing, which we arranged there and then with Dan Hopkins. He was fully conversant with the background of the sellers as well as ourselves. On the second viewing we made an offer, due to the excellent skill of Dan this was all agreed that very day. The process of buying property is recognised as being one of the most stressful events in life, however I found comfort in the professional and diligent service offered by Dan and Martyn . Whenever we had questions they were answered promptly either by phone or email. On visiting them in their offices they recognised us personally , which just adds to the professional feel of the service. This level of care and professionalism has continued after we have completed, they have liaised with the sellers on our behalf on such matters as locating the outside stopcock!!! Forwarding of post . Even offering to re attend the property. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to sell or buy property.

R. J. Halliday

All staff very helpful and pleasant. They were always willing to facilitate repeat viewings even after the purchase was agreed. They were not pushy at all even though it turned out to be a fairly drawn out transaction in the end

Allen Wilkins

We found the staff friendly and approachable,and willing to be very helpful in arranging a number of viewings. They were also very helpful and informative.

Amanda Vandendorpe

A very professional and friendly service. All staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The whole process was relatively stress-free and easy

Mr. R. J. Halliday

Mansbridge did an excellent job in selling our property, a smallholding on the edge of Dartmoor All of the staff were good to deal with and enthusiastic and I would use them again.

Selina Bird

Such a great company, helped me achieve what we wanted, and was there every step of the way, so easy to get on with and speak to, highly recommend, did there up most all the way

Andrew Kennedy

Very easy to work with and kept us informed. They were happy to do a complete refresh of the photos when the weather changed and repromote the property.

Mrs. Ricarlo Whittle

Really pleased with the way they have handled my house purchase. Very helpful and friendly made you feel you could call them to ask any questions . I would definitely recommend them

Andrew Buckerfield

The Team at Mansbridgebalment, Okehampton were a pleasure to deal with, they gave us confidence, answered all our questions, were very efficient and personable. They resolved queries quickly and provided regular updates on progress, especially on move day. A dedicated and professional team and we have no hesitation in recommending them to you. Special thanks to Martyn Cox and Jonathan Mansell for all their help and support.

John D

We had used MB Okehampton before to our complete satisfaction to buy the cottage so, naturally, we used them to sell it! All was very professionally handled and the communication was particularly good. Well done MB!!

Sophie Charmier

Tricky negotiations with the vendor from the start but Martyn and Jonathan provided an excellent 'go-between' service from the start. They were straight down the line about what would/would not be acceptable to the vendor. I got the feeling they were genuinely acting in the interests of both parties to help the sale go through.


Excellent communication and always so polite and personal. Does what it says on the tin. Wish all estate agents were like this _Comment on agent fees_ Good

Mrs. B

From the outset we have received brilliant helpful, friendly service from Martyn and the team at the Okehampton office, especially during the final closing stages of our sale. Would highly recommend them. Comment on agent fees The fees are very good considering the competitiveness of the housing market.

Very helpful & Professional

Jonathon and Martyn were very helpful throughout our recent purchase, and provided great help with local contacts. They provided a very personal service. Well done. Comment on agent fees None, we were buying.

Steve Roberts

2nd time of using this office. Again excellent service. Martin and Jonathon work as a very effective team. A very professional business. Comment on agent fees very competitive in todays market.

Sylvia Marsh

Both Martyn and Jonathan were excellent at keeping me updated throughout with my transactions. I cannot thank them both enough! Comment on agent fees Good.

Cath & Andy

Excellent service from both Martyn & Jonathan. They undertook all the viewings, gave us feedback very promptly and achieved a sale in about a month. Thanks Guys. Comment on agent fees Very reasonable.

Jane moved from Dorset

Very impressed with the service provided from day one. Knowledgeable about local area, and helpful in providing us with detailed information in respect to the property we wanted to view. As we were moving into the county - we needed that local perspective and contact - which was invaluable to my husband and I in finding the right property for us. Throughout the process of buying. Mansbridge Belmont, and Jonathan and Martyn always kept in contact and worked tirelessly to resolve matters swiftly as they arose. Jonathan and Martyn's professionalism, knowledge and experience provided gave the necessary 'back-up' to ensure the purchase completed; given some of the complexities that arose with solicitor's, this was key to the success of the transaction.

Brian & maggie

From the first valuation we were very comfortable with the way we were advised and treated, the marketing was good, all emails and calls were promptly handled to our entire satisfaction. our sale went through quickly, all the staff were there to help so what more could we ask for. Comment on agent fees We feel the fee was fair for the service and the way we were treated, we could see what we were paying for

Bridget & Paul from Essex

We cannot fault the service we received fro Mansbridge Balment. They worked so hard to sell both our homes in Highampton and nothing was too much trouble. +Comment on agent fees+ The fees were extremely reasonable for the amount of work carried out to sell our properties.

B Miles

We bought through Mansbridge Balment (completion early March 2018). The team there, particularly our main contact Martyn, were a pleasure to deal with. Delays with our London sale made it quite a protracted matter but Martyn's calm approach and understanding played a big part in keeping the whole thing together across quite a few months. I'm sure that with other agents it could well have fallen through. We wouldn't hesitate to use this agent if we were thinking of selling in the future.

N & A

Having been very unhappy with the poor service of another leading estate agency in Devon/Somerset who kept mucking us about, we were pleasantly surprised at how efficient, friendly and helpful all the team at Mansbridge Balment in Okehampton were in assisting us to purchase our home. All dealings with MB were conducted in a prompt fashion and any queries responded to in timely fashion. Would happily use them again.

Both Jonathon and Martyn were excellent in the service provided to us. An problem in the chain were resolved. I would definitely use them again.

Sarah Bernie

Excellent communication through the entire process. My husband and I are from Australia and are completely new to the purchasing process in the U.K. Jonathan helped us through every step of the way, was patient, informative and just a great person to deal with. Thank you!


All the staff were very friendly and helpful - Jonathon particularly in the early months and Martin, latterly, who must have the patience of a saint dealing with some very difficult buyers who, without any warning, pulled out of the sale at lunchtime on the day we were due to exchange!! Fortunately a really pleasant buyer then returned and the sale went through very smoothly. I feel that all the staff worked hard to sell my house over the 18 months that it took to finally achieve the sale.

Terry Guest

What can I say, superb, I dealt with Jonathon throughout the process of buying the property at Okehampton. He was extremely helpful,professional and friendly from the start,and kept me informed at each stage. Thanks very much.
