Balgores Estate Agents have 11 branches and they mainly list properties in SS14, CM1, RM9, DA12, RM11, IG10, CM5 and RM1. Over the last 6 months, they've listed 911 properties, with an average time to sale of 16 weeks.
TO AVOID. They do not care about people and about their personal details. Disgusting service where they had us waste all day collecting all the personal documentation to send them such as bank statements, passport, proof of address, etc... for a property that already had an offer accepted. This branch should be closed and all people there fired for approving this. Who want to treat with businesses that do not respect people and their personal details?
Jordan has been really friendly and helpful throughout the process and helped things run smoothly from start to finish. I feel like I can contact her as and when I need and she is always happy to help. Would recommend :).
As a tenant I wouldn’t recommend renting from Balgores. During the two years we rented we experienced issues which they were slow to resolve. Our fire alarm needed servicing. We were very clear to Balgores as to which fire alarm was the issue but they didn’t pass these details onto the workman, who came and serviced the wrong one. He had to be sent back out to service the correct fire alarm. We then had an issue with another fire alarm. Prior to sending out a workman, Balgores has to obtain permission from the landlord. Balgores admitted to attempting to calling the landlord then forgetting to follow up the call after they didn’t get through to the landlord. We were on holiday for a week during this time and came home to a still broken fire alarm which woke us up multiple times during the night.
They said they’d ring the cleaners they use to arrange an end of tenancy clean. Again they didn’t get through to the cleaners. However they didn’t inform us of this. Instead they rang us a couple of days later asking if we’d organised the clean which they said they’d organise. They also didn’t give us a date by which the clean needed to be done but when we did book it told us ideally it had to be sooner.
As part of the end of tenancy report, they stated the cleanliness of the flat was “good” and “fair” following the professional clean. Despite this the landlord claimed to be unhappy with the cleanliness. Balgores then decided to agree with the landlord, which completely contradicted the report and the attached photos.
Do not rent from Balgores!! They treat tenants in an awful manner and only care about keeping their landlords happy.
Michael at Balgores was absolutely brilliant in helping my girlfriend and I, find our first flat together. Michael was always on hand to give us information on all the properties that were in our price bracket. Callum was also a great worker along side Michael. And would highly recommend balgores chelmsford!
Recently rented a long term
Let and Balgores are fantastic and MARK in the Hornchurch branch was exceptional.
He replied to my emails after his usual hours and went to the trouble of letting me know I had been accepted on the house after closing hours via email, as he realised it was important for me to know prior to the long weekend. I didn’t ask him to. He did it because he cares about his clients and is obviously a workaholic !!!
I have rented here and abroad previously and will return to Balgores because of Marks work ethics which are amazing. I hope he is appreciated and noticed by Balgores.
Before I took on Balgores as my property manager, I reviewed a lot of others and I narrowed down my selection and chose Balgores because of their responsiveness, local knowledge and professionalism. If you live in the Essex area I would recommend you get in touch with Balgores, they will undoubtedly give you a first class personalised service.
Balgores helped me tremendously when selling my property and went far and beyond with help. Ryan and Jack were always ready to help me fill in forms when I needed help. I would recommend balgores to anyone when buying or selling their property.
Very professional and informative. Communication is first class.All staff involved maintain highest standards.At all times friendliness helped when interest was slow. Conducted viewings with no problem. Couldn’t choose a fetter Agent.
