I can't rate this company high enough. Very professional and courteous. Nothing too much trouble. I would highly recommend them for either buying or selling.


A professional , respectful , personal approach ; Nicola Muncey the gem in the crown of this Estate Agent , her warm friendly approach brings trust and integrity into the process of buying a family home.


The most professional, personal,reassuring,successful service from all the team of lovely people. A very big thank you !


Delighted to have a business with Mansbridge Balment who is providing high quality service. I keep recommending them to my friends and so far everyone was happy with their service as well.


I have used M&B for over a year, and with them finding a suitable tenant for my fathers property, helping to deal with all of the paperwork, administration, assisting with problems that may arise, and being there for support. The staff are first class, caring and supportive when navigating a sometimes complicated environment when renting out a property for the first time. Outstanding.


The team at mansbridge Balment proved to be a fine choice for our recent unique sale of a smallholding in east cornwall , Great advice given by Richard as to achieving the best possible price, communication was perfect full marks to Peter for his negotiation skills. Kate was informative, keeping us informed as to all veiwings carried out and feedback as well as offers received. wouldnt use anyone else !


Very helpful and professional staff in the Tavistock office, which made the house purchase run very smoothly. Particular thanks to Kate and Kevin.


Absolutely fantastic care even though I was the buyer! Can’t speak highly enough of Kevin and the team. I will recommend to everyone. Many thanks Mansbridge Balment. Wishing you every success in the future.


Excellent professional service. Every issue with the property-even the smallest is being dealt immediately. Easy to communicate with. Highly recommend to tenants like us for peace of mind and landlords that want their property managed by professionals who care about their customers.


Julia and the team at mansbridge have been absolutely incredible every step of the way, the speed and turnover of communication and efficiency of the team meant we were able to match with a property and meet the landlord before making any payments to ensure it was the right home for us. I cannot recommend or thank the team enough for all of their hard work, with even the smallest 'silly but it's worrying me' question not being too much for this amazing team, I would 100% use this office and team again and look forward to working with them if I ever have to x

Amazing support throughout the house sale. It’s brilliant to have it done and to have managed it all from up north with so very little hassle. Also very helpful intros to a wonderful local house clearance organisation and cleaners and help with all kinds of other stuff. Definitely above-and-beyond service, brilliant!


We had a really positive experience buying a house through Mansbridge Balment, Tavistock. Kevin initially showed us around the property and clearly has lots of experience in doing so. He offered advice when asked and answered all questions that we had, even after the viewing. Dealing with Peter, when our sale fell through, was really straightforward and resolutions were found quickly for all parties involved.


Our existing property was successfully purchased through Mansbridge in Tavistock in 2007. Fourteen years later when it was time to move on, Mansbridge were marketing a new build house that we fell in love with. Unfortunately, it would not be completed till the end of 2022 but to be considered we would have to put our property on the market by the end of February. Mansbridge were given the task of finding a buyer who could possibly wait until our purchase was finished at the end of the year. By April they had but all parties had a stressful roller coaster ride until contracts were exchanged on 18th November. Members of the Mansbridge team that were actively involved in our sale were Nicola, Peter, Richard, Kevin, Tony and not least Dan. When negotiations appeared to be reaching a stalemate Peter was able to broker a favourable deal between our sale and purchase and agents fees that enabled us to proceed for which I am very grateful. Richard and Tony both took some great internal photos and early spring external shots to provide a great presentation for rightmove but when full summer arrived and the garden was looking its best Dan turned up with his camera and added some amazing images of the Barn and its gardens in full bloom, one of which I will have enlarged and mounted for display in our new home.


From the first point of contact when the property we wanted to rent came up on rightmove website, our experience with Mansbridge Balment lettings has been first rate. All the team we have met have been polite, professional and courteous; but above all very friendly and welcoming. We look forward to having a very good tenant/agent relationship with all the team.


Mansbridge and Balment are the go-to agents in this area with good and justifiable reason. They have a long standing relationship within the community in which they are held in general high regard. They have extensive and detailed knowledge of the local housing market. The staff are professional and motivated and specialise in building individual relationships which eases the process of buying/selling a property. The offices are friendly and welcoming. On a more personal level our case was long and protracted (Probate related) and we would like to mention both Nicola and Peter who were always on the end of the phone when spirits were flagging. Nicola in particular I cannot rate highly enough, extremely experienced and in total command of her job. The team have a way of making you feel they have a genuine care and offer all necessary help and guidance right through the various stages until completion.


Mansbridge & Balment were so helpful in the sale of my Dad's property. They all communicated well and kept me informed during the whole process. Things took a very sad turn when both my parents passed away during the negotiations and the probate process was very stressful to say the least. Throughout it all, I was given compassion and understanding, and both Nicola and Julia were most thoughtful and very reassuring! Peter also managed the very long and bumpy ride to exchange and completion in a very professional manner. Kevin, who first came out to place the property on the market, was very kind and considerate, especially to my Dad. I can't thank them enough for all their help.


Our house sale and purchase became very complicated which resulted considerable stress and frustration for all concerned. From the very beginning Nicola has been superb, starting from our initial viewing to our eventual exchange of contracts. Her proactive communication and prompt responses to questions has put our selling agents to shame. She has also been really helpful in recommending suppliers for surveys and services and everyone we have used has been really efficient and friendly. Hopefully we will not be moving again for a considerable while but when the time comes we will be in touch with Mansbridgebalment and hopefully Nicola to handle our sale.


Professional and responsive in relation to all correspondence and negotiations. Very approachable and friendly team who dealt with all enquiries in a prompt manner. Would use again.


This is the second time I've used the estate agent and find them to be very friendly and efficient. Selling a house during lockdown was always going to have its problems but M&B dealt with my sale brilliantly


Richard gave us great advice and was as helpful and professional as ever with bringing our property to market during these strange Covid times!In what was a very drawn out sale Nicola was an enormous help, chasing the sale and updating us regularly. Even contacting us and the buyers on her days off! Without her help I don’t think the sale would ever have completed. This is our 5th sale using Mansbridge and Balment and I thoroughly recommend them when selling your property . Every member of staff was very helpful and friendly whenever we made contact.


Nicola has been extremely helpful with our purchase and has helped with chasing both sides of the chain. Mansbridge have been a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend them!


They provided great advice and help. They were always ready to help with questions and were very supportive throughout the sale of our property.
