Chris Morton

Great service we needed to advertise our house quickly and they did just that. They got us a very quick sale in 3 weeks.

Nicola Lampe

Very professional approach to selling our unique property. Introduced several prospective buyers and and under offer within 6 weeks of the property coming to the market. Lots of useful advice and support when issues arose with the sale. A proactive approach to monitoring progress of the sale from first offer to completion day. Would highly recommend this agent to prospective sellers.

Elizabeth Nichols

An excellent service, considerable care, communication and professional attitude at all times, with sound advice. Mansbridge Balment provided the energy and drive when the sale most needed it, and reduced the levels of emotion at the most stressful points. I would not hesitate in recommending them.

Katherine Batt

Mansbridge Balment found buyers for our property quickly and efficiently, and located a property for us to purchase in our preferred area, understanding our brief. They acted as liaison between all parties and were excellent in communicating, and acted promptly where necessary. A service to be recommended.


A very smooth and hassle free experience. Mansbridge and Balment swiftly identified a property that met my requirements and the sale process was less than 6 weeks from offer to completion. They provided an excellent liaison between me and the vendor so that any issues or queries were rapidly resolved.


The whole team at Mansbridge we’re professional and hardworking through the process of us selling our home. Communication was excellent and there was a real feeling that the team were working with us as much as for us. Particular mention to Nicola and Peter who completed viewings and were always available to discuss progress. We valued everyone’s efforts and achieved our goal. Mansbridge were proactive and positive throughout what can be a pretty stressful process.

Richard Peet

Kevin was very helpful and accommodating from the first time we viewed Edgemoor House and subsequent purchase. He answered all our questions with patience and clarity .........and there were many questions! Although the purchase of Edgemoor was not plain sailing, Kevin kept us informed of all developments and kept in touch with our agent too. A stressful time made easier by great communication. _Comment on agent fees_ Not applicable


Following discussions with Kevin Lethbridge on the potential sale of our property we had no hesitation in entrusting the process to Mansbridge Balment. I have to say that at every stage our expectations of professionalism, attention to detail and levels of communication from the whole team were unfaltering. Now having sold, we are extremely impressed clients of Mansbridge Balment and would whole heartedly recommend them. _Comment on agent fees_ Very fair.


We bought this buy-to-let property from Mansbridge and they offered us a very good rate to manage the property for us. Their advice was excellent and we got a first class tenant within a few weeks.

Anita & Kevin

Every member of staff went above and beyond to be helpful and informative.Richard became our main source of contact and his cheerful manner helped us through the disappointment of losing our buyer late in the process. Luckily we secured a new buyer and once again the service exceeded our expectations especially when we found out our vendors were prepared to pick up where we had left off. We have now been in our home for two weeks. Loving it and slowly but surely making it our forever home. A huge thank you. Comment on agent fees Fair


Everything went very smoothly from viewing, making an offer, eventual accepting of the offer to tying up all the paperwork. Kept very well informed at each stage.


Good comes and kept up to date with the progress of the purchase Pleased with the service offered and the information and updates

Hildegard & Brian

We have used M & B before and were not disappointed this time either. The sale took some time due to problems down the chain from our sale and purchase. At all times we considered that the service we received from them was first rate. Buying and selling is a stressful business and it is good to have an agent who is at all times approachable, and helpful. We dealt with various members of staff and feel it would be unfair to single any one out as we were dealing with a team. We recommend them to anyone buying or selling. Comment on agent fees Ahhh, fees. Don't we all hate the agents and solicitors fees, not to mention the Stamp duty. But having said this, We were happy with the level of fee as we had experience in our property search to meet the cheapo internet agents acting for other vendors. Only when one compares the two is it possible to judge cost Vs quality of service and eventual outcome. So in our opinion the service was worth the fee.


This was by necessity a speedy purchase and Peter oiled the wheels with exceptional service. He provided a rapid response to email queries, even on a Sunday. He also provided me with a second viewing on Christmas Eve when the office was actually shut. Outstanding, the best estate agent I have ever dealt with, and there have been many. Comment on agent fees As a purchaser, no fees involved


Peter and the whole team in Tavistock were extremely helpful, kept us well informed at all stages, and very positive throughout. Comment on agent fees Good value

Debbie Honey

I have moved many times over the years but I can honestly that Nicola was the best Agent I have dealt with. Nothing was too much trouble and she really "went the extra mile" to ensure everything went through smoothly. I was in constant text contact with her and always knew exactly what was happening, she even called me on her day off! On removal day Richard was great , popping round to the house when we couldn't find the heating controls! I would thoroughly recommend Mansbridge Balment Tavistock. The whole experience surpassed any previous Agent experience we have had!

Elizabeth Cool

Nichola Muncey was very efficent and I was able to purchase my property extremely quickly whilst she was still sensitive and professional with the Vendors. Altogether it was a very satisfactory transaction.


It was a pleasure dealing with Mansbridge and Balment with the purchase of our new home.They were professional and accommodating when we wanted to revisit the property several times with builders and architect and allowed us as much time as we needed to progress our renovation plans. We dealt with Julia who was extremely pleasant and helpful..

Sarah & Ashley

Customer service has been second to none from making an appointment for a viewing all the way to moving in. Carla and Ali were so friendly and helpful, nothing was to much trouble. We can't thank them enough. We highly recommend this estate agent to anyone. Thank you Comment on agent fees Good

Stephen H

We were moving down from Surrey and only having a few days to view properties we contacted Mansbridge Balmont to arrange viewings of houses that we were interested in seeing. Nicola was the agent who conducted all the viewings with us and we were immediately impressed by the time that she had obviously devoted to getting to know the properties in some detail and was able to respond to all our questions immediately. Nicola is clearly a very experienced agent with extensive knowledge of the area and we were particularly impressed with the time she took to get to know us as buyers so that she could help to direct us to the properties that would meet our needs perfectly. She was open and honest throughout the whole process pointing out work that needed to be done in addition to the positive aspects of the property. We felt that our needs were just as important to her as those of the vendor and she certainly was not just just ''chasing the sale''. There were issues down the chain and it was Nicola who kept things moving, maintaing contact with all the other parties involved to ensure a smooth progression, not just for us and the vendor but for our buyers as well. Nicola was even chasing things up on her days off. The positive experience of Mansbridge Balment did not end on completion. On the day we moved in we had difficulty getting the hot water and heating working. We contacted the office to enquire whether they were aware of any instructions relating to the boiler and within 30 minutes Richard had come to the house and got everything working. We could not recommend Mansbridge Balment enough as agents who go out of their way to ensure that vendors and buyers are both treated as being equally important. A very positive experience from all the staff we had contact with.

Louise O'Neill

Nicola was the agent who sold my home to me and then sold it for me when I moved. I have very extensive experience of agents in Devon, Bristol and elsewhere. Nicola is by far the best agent who has ever acted on my behalf or sold me a property. She is head and shoulders above any other agent in my experience. She is calm, realistic, well balanced, tenacious and inspires utter confidence in both vendors and purchasers. She is extraordinarily skilled at handling difficult and stressful selling processes. A consummate professional whom I cannot rate highly enough. I am completely confident that other clients and purchasers would say the same. Comment on agent fees well earned

Garren Baker

From the initial meeting with Richard we decided to go with Mansbridge and were not disappointed. Communication was fantastic throughout also they were very understanding as we have house cats so were careful when showing potential buyers round. We probably met with Julia the most who was lovely and Nicola was especially helpful towards the end of our sale. We would highly recommend.Mansbridge! Comment on agent fees Good


Peter Sleep was helpful and courteous, gave good advice on matters peripheral to the purchase and performed his intermediary functions calmly and diplomatically. Comment on agent fees Not relevant


Mansbridge and Balment provided an excellent service right through from my first contact with them, they were able to deal with my conflicting requirements to sell or let the property. The details they produced were accurate, attractive and professional. They were able to develop significant interest and find a buyer in a short space of time. Comment on agent fees Fees were not out of line with other high street agents although more than the "online" agents.


We have dealt with many very nice members of the M&B Tavistock office but Kevin and Richard have been excellent in their attitude, professionalism and helpfulness. In the Bere Alston office Trish is all of the above and certainly goes out of her way to accommodate clients. I would recommend M&B most highly to anyone selling or purchasing


Always willing to go the extra mile and help out with renting a property, especially when you live far away from it. Comment on agent fees Good

Simon & Maria Allen

As we all know, selling your home can be very stressful with many sleepless nights! Thankfully selling our Barn conversion through Mansbridge Balment in Tavistock the process was made easier due to their professionalism. Both Peter Sleep and Kevin Lethbridge looked after the whole process which gave us the confidence to leave the sale of our home in capable hands. Many thanks to all at Mansbridge Balment. Comment on agent fees The fee we agreed worked for both parties.


Recently bought a house through Mansbridge Balmant and all the staff were great but Nick and Jonathan were exceptional. They were very quick to get back to me with the answers j needed and they both left me wonderful voice mail's when I successfully bought the property.


The service I received from Mansbridge and Balment on the recent sale of my house was nothing but excellent, they always kept in touch with appointments for viewings and feedback. I cannot thank them enough for allowing me to downsize without any hassle. I would highly recommend the Team at Tavistock. Comment on agent fees Good

Deborah Morris

The team at M&B in Tavistock sold our house in quite a challenging time, we could not believe the number of viewings we had, it was fantastic. When Kevin visited our house we had already had 3 other estate agents around but we found Kevin to be totally honest about the circumstances of the sale and gave us some really positive professional advice. Throughout the process M&B kept us up to date, always provided feedback after viewings and the role of Rachel in managing the stressful and fraught time between acceptance and signing was absolutely brilliant - we have no hesitation in recommending them and would use them again. Comment on agent fees Totally acceptable


I have just purchased my first property and Nicola was there to help with every question or query I had. All the correspondence was done in a very quick manner.

Delighted Seller

The sale of my house in Devon was handled impeccably from start to completion. Efficient, pro-active and always so helpful. The best estate agent I have ever had dealings with, and there have been a few! Comment on agent fees The service they gave was worth every penny. 'You get what you pay for...' In this case I consider they certainly earned their commission by doing a fantastic job. And they achieved the full asking price in a tricky market.


We have sold our family home have successfully let it for a year following an overseas move. From the initial valuation undertaken by Richard the level of service was superior to that offered by other local firms. His genuine enthusiasm for the property was central to finding prospective buyers. We have subsequently bought another property that Mansbridge now let. Again Leisa has gone above and beyond with helping us complete this sale and ensure the house was in an acceptable condition for Lettings despite the fact that we are half way across the world. Mansbridge have certainly gone beyond what I would consider a normal service in every aspect of our dealings with them over the last two years. +Comment on agent fees+ Highly competative


So nice to have had dealings with friendly, courteous staff at Mansbridge Balment from beginning to end of the sale of our house. More communication with Rachel as Sales Progressor and she always made that extra bit of effort on our behalf. Well worth the fees.


Peter matched the house to our requirements and helped us in a very smooth, hassle free purchase. I would recommend MB to anyone.

Happy Buyer

The team at Mansbridge Balment have been proactive and helpful throughout the process of buying a house from their client. Thanks to their honesty, professionalism, and tenacity, the various delays of conveyancing etc., have been overcome, and they have been instrumental in ensuring the process was expedited as quickly as possible. We are grateful for their support to us as purchasers, and would highly recommend them for vendors and buyers alike


All staff I came in contact with were personable and helpful Ongoing communication during the buying process was reassuring which all helped to dissipate any potential problems .


I found Rachel to be an excellent sales progressor. Efficient, empathetic and with an amiable disposition. I doubt whether the outcome reached would have been possible without her invaluable input.


We found our experience with Mansbridge Balment to be excellent from start to finish. From the initial valuation of our house to the final sale the staff were all friendly, professional and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Mansbridge Balment to anyone thinking of selling their home. Comment on agent fees The fees were very slightly more than we would have liked, however, we felt that they did work hard for their money with numerous viewings and a great deal of advertising of our house in order to generate interest.

Just completed

Everything went according to plan. Rachel kept in touch with me throughout the process. I have no complaints so all good.


Fabulous service from initial viewing, with Nicola, through to completion Rachel kept us informed throughout the whole process . Friendly, positive and professional Rachel is your USP. Thank you.

Mrs. P

useful direct and to the point, kept us in the loop .friendly approachable staff, sold our property and bought our new home through Mansbridge Balment, would highly recommend. although there fees were too high for the sale of out flat!

Mo Jones

The whole selling experience was made easy & stress free by the speed & efficiency of the Mansbridge Belment team but especially Rachel Anderson Stacey the senior sales progressed Thank You All Comment on agent fees Competitive


Very good and efficient service and helped at every stage of the move, would highly recommend Nick and his team.

Jack Jessop

Brilliant service, kept up to date regularly and always at hand if needed. The guys were great from the start.

Sarah-Jane Lincoln

Rachel provided an good follow up service to the sale agreed on our property in Tavistock. Even after the sale when a slight issue arose, after moving she effectively dealt with the situation pleasantly and professionally. She is a good asset to Mansbridge Balment, _Comment on agent fees_ Good, reasonable and per area market

Huw Phillips

! would unreservedly recommend the whole team at M&B. They are professional, courteous and helpful and they have gone out of their way to accommodate our needs. Over the past two years we have bought a property, sold a property and let a property with M&B and in all aspects we could not fault the level of service. We live in the Middle East so communication is not easy and the time differences make things awkward but that has not presented a problem to the staff at M&B. Having had some poor experiences with other Tavistock estate agents I no longer bother going to anyone else in Tavistock apart from M&B. Both the sales and lettings teams are excellent and putting them together in one building has obviously strengthened the communication between the different departments as I will often speak to one dept and almost immediately the other knows whats going on without me having to tell multiple people in the same organisation. *Comment on agent fees* Average - try to negotiate the best deal you can. They will listen.

E. Holliman

I found your service to be professional at all times yet friendly too. I was listened to and got a quick response each time I made any contact. I would use again without hesitating. *Comment on agent fees* Fair.


Brilliant service, from valuation, viewings to sale! Very friendly knowledgeable team. Great advice given and all viewings carried out by staff without fail, which was perfect for me so I could just leave the house with children and dog! Would absolutely use this agent again. Comment on agent fees:- Fair. You get what you pay for!

Malcolm R

The service we received was excellent. In addition to helping with our sale and finding a succession of possible buyers Rachael chased the awful purple bricks vendors continually. As we are unable to move directly into our new house Richard made strenuous efforts to find us temporary accommodation until he ultimately found us a place. The service we received from all staff could not have been bettered.

Hugh W

Initially overvalued property, but prepared to renegotiate commission rate when this became apparent. Very good communication, positive advice, quick answers to questions. Secured a fair price in a difficult market.

Suzy Kraike

Although a stressfull process Rachel made it so much more bearable. Keeping me up to date on a regular basis even though I was the purchaser. Answered any queries I had very promptly and professionally. I can’t rate Mansbridge & Balment highly enough. I will definately recommend them and when I sell (not for a while) I will not hesitate to use them.
