Excellent service from start to finish.  Very polite staff, extremely efficient and professional.

The property was sold by auction - a very exciting and interesting experience. I was very inpressed that staff recognised us at the auction and spoke to us as soon as we arrived.

Ms J Hough - December 2017

Comment Comment

We are just over the moon, the auction was amazing as you all are at Maggs & Allen!  We are absolutely thrilled with the result and found the auction very exciting.

We are delighted to have chosen Maggs & Allen to auction our property and found the service to be 10/10.

Thank you again to Rob, Anna and the team.

Mrs M Taverner - December 2017

Comment Comment

I would recommend Maggs & Allen to anyone.  They came to my house on several occasions as I couldn't get out easily and were very helpful in explaining every detail of the auction process to me.

They rang up and kept me informed of what was happening from start to finish.

Thank you again for all your help.

Mr W Wardlaw - December 2017

Comment Comment

I would just like to thank you and team for the excellent results you achieved at the recent auction, selling at more than 12.5% above my reserve price. We were both delighted and a little surprised with the results of the auction, and I'm very pleased we chose Magg & Allen over your main competitor.

The whole process was extremely painless from my point of view, and I would like to compliment you all on your professionalism. My only regret is that I didn't decide to sell by auction earlier which would have prevented me wasting nearly 7 months with two different estate agents. 

The misconception I was under is that I thought it was more expensive to sell at auction, but I now know that this is simply not true, and is in line with conventional high street estate agents.  After having a number of sales fall through, it is very reassuring to know that a binding contract is signed on this night.

Thanks again

Mr A Lewton - December 2017

Comment Comment

Thank you for all the effort and hard work put into selling my house.

I’ve never been in the auction process before so didn’t know what to expect. I knew my house would only appeal to a few buyers and so it proved.

However, through the efforts of the Maggs and Allen Team, not only did it sell but the price achieved was higher than what was anticipated. 

Mr A Colledge - October 2017

Comment Comment

My experience over many years is that Maggs & Allen are reliable, helpful and business-like.

Mr J Britton - April 2017

Comment Comment

Our property had been empty for some time and was in need of complete refurbishment, so ideal for a developer.

Maggs & Allen worked extremely hard to market the property to the right purchasers which resulted in a massive turn out at the auction and a sale way over our reserve price.  We are very pleased with their work and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mrs J Giltrow - April 2017

Comment Comment

Maggs & Allen have sold two properties for us in the past three years.  We are very happy with the friendly, knowledgable service and total professionalism.

Mr R Murdoch - March 2017

Comment Comment

I was very pleased with the service that you provided.  All of your staff acted in a professional and efficient manner, enabling the sale of our land to proceed with no problems.  Special thanks go to Rob Ansell.

We have successfully sold 3 different properties with you by auction and have found you to be very professional, speedy and efficient. Many thanks again.

Mr & Mrs Tanner - March 2017

Comment Comment

Rob was friendly and efficicent, as were the office staff when I called in.  The property was well advertised and I was more than satisfied with the price achieved.

Ms L Pugsley - December 2016

Comment Comment

Rob was friendly and efficient, as was the office staff when i called. The property was well advertised and i was more than satisfied with the price acheived. 

Mrs L Pugsley - December 2016

Comment Comment

We just want to say thank you for all of the help and support you have provided to us over the past few months.  You helped make a difficult decision easier to deal with.  You answered our questions promptly, kept the lines of communication open and just put our minds at ease that the house was being dealt with.  Rob is no doubt aware of the many ups and downs we had with the house and I'm grateful for all of the help he provided.

The result of the auction far surpassed what we thought we would achieve for the property, given the condition it was in.  We knew there was interest in the property but you managed to take this interest to a whole other level.  Once again, thank you so much.

Mr S Price - December 2016

Comment Comment

The quite obvious abilities of the staff who dealt with us inspired a confidence that the best deal possible would be obtained for us at the auction.

Mr & Mrs Jenkins - October 2016

Comment Comment

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with the sale of my land.  Your team were all really helpful, reassuring and prompt with all my queries throughout the process.

The Auction was excellent, I was so pleased with the way Anna managed to progress the sale to such a high amount.

Thanks again for all your help, you have one very happy client and an excellent team.

Mrs E Werrett - September 2016

Comment Comment

Madeleine and I were absolutely delighted with the service you provided - we thought you were highly professional throughout the process and we are absolutely delighted with the outcome. 

Thank you once again.

Mr & Mrs Sobey - August 2016

Comment Comment

I have had two dealings with you, one purchase and one sale, both by auction. I found you to be both helpful and professional on both occasions and would recommend you to anyone for either service.

Mr Moody - May 2016

Comment Comment

I have recently sold my development site with Maggs & Allen without any problems whatsoever.

The experience from start to finish was professionally conducted by Rob Ansell and I would not hesitate to recommend Maggs & Allen in the future.

Mr P Yates - May 2016

Comment Comment

From the outset I was impressed by Maggs & Allen and felt assured of a professional approach.  I was impressed by the regular updates informing me of viewings and the overall outcome was as I desired.

A friendly, efficient service which I can highly recommend.

Mrs D Lidbury - May 2016

Comment Comment

The service provided by Rob and the rest of the office when selling my garage at auction was brilliant!

Mr D Mason - May 2016

Comment Comment

When deciding which Auctioneer to use, Maggs & Allen provided the best forecast for the eventual sale price, spent the most time with their appraisal and offered the most professional approach.

We received an excellent service from start to finish.  Thanks so much.

Mrs A Davies - April 2016

Comment Comment

A good experience of a local Auction House with a sale price over and above what was expected.

When I came to Maggs & Allen (already disappointed with a large London based Auction House) they were completely different in their approach.  They worked hard to sell the property, kept me informed throughout the process and were polite.  This was very important to me, thank you!

Mrs R Eligon - January 2016

Comment Comment

An excellent service with very professional staff who gave regular updates.  We felt that our house was in safe hands and it was good to know that Maggs & Allen were able to offer a very wide range of services and expertise.

We were very pleased with the outcome at Auction too! Thank you.

Mrs J Jackson - December 2015

Comment Comment

I sold a plot of land with planning permission through Maggs & Allen.  It was a first for me and a steep learning curve.  I got good professional advice from the start plus a lot of guidance on the project itself.  Maggs & Allen made it stress free, they talked to me in terms I understood, communicated with me regularly and gave me realistic expectations throughout.

Maggs & Allen marketed and auctioned my property and the sale price far exceeded my expectations.

I dealt with several people during the period, they were all equally well informed and professional.  I would happily recommend them.

Mrs S Kerr - December 2015

Comment Comment

I have been very impressed with Rob Ansell and his team.  This was my first sale at an auction and all the guidance and advice that was given by Rob was very much appreciated.  You obviously worked very hard to get the best possible price and we are delighted.

Personally I would definitely use Maggs & Allen again.

Mrs V Allen - September 2015

Comment Comment

Rob Ansell provided sound, accurate advice to help me sell a plot of land for more than I expected.

A very straightforward process and experience.

Mr N Josling - September 2015

Comment Comment

To Anna and all the team. 

Just a short note to say a big thank you for all your kindness, patience and support when you sold our late mother's house by auction in June.  You made the process look so simple (when we know it wasn't) and it all went smoothly.  Thank you again.

Mrs K Scobie - August 2015

Comment Comment

Thanks to the advice of Maggs & Allen we were able to achieve another excellent result at auction.

Mr A Hughes - August 2015

Comment Comment

Dear Toby, we would just like to take this opportunity to especially thank you for all your efforts in dealing with the sale of our property by auction.

Your enthusiasm and professionalism while working on our behalf was greatly appreciated and we would not hesitate to call upon your services again should the occasion arise and of course we will happily recommend you.

Mr & Mrs Rollin - July 2015

Comment Comment

Both at aged 83 and having lived in the same property for the past 60 years, we had no knowledge or experience of buying or selling in the property market.

You were recommended to us by a family member as a good, reliable and dependable option.  Selecting you as our agents turned out to be the best decision we could have made.  We have been highly delighted with the service, helpfulness and understanding of our lack of knowlegde in this situation.

The end result has been beyond our wildest dreams and we are really grateful for all you have done and achieved for us.  The Manager, Rob Ansell was especially helpful. We most certainly would recommend you to other prospective sellers.

Mr & Mrs Bennett - June 2015

Comment Comment

Maggs and Allen were fantastic when it came to buying our new home. Extremely helpful, trustworthy and proactive. We wouldn't have secured it without their dedication and honesty.

I would highly recommend.

Mrs G Brothers (Buyer) - June 2015

Comment Comment

Thanks so much for your kind assistance last night.  It was a great night and I managed to get a marvellous flat, subject to a generous helping of TLC!

In the meantime, many congratulations on another successful sale. How ironic that the slowest start proved one of the most profitable lots! I guess that's the skill of a true auctioneer.

Victoria T (Buyer) - June 2015

Comment Comment

Thank you Maggs & Allen for the efficiency and professionalism shown by you (but especially to Rob Ansell) in selling my flat for me at auction.  Rob was very good at keeping us informed every step of the way, especially when we had 4 interested parties at one point!

I would have no hesitation in using you again.  Many thanks.

Pamela Macleod - May 2015

Comment Comment

Congratulations to Rob and his team, we were given wonderful advice and Rob guided us through the whole process.  Thank you for all your help, everything was just perfect for us - A very grateful Pauline and Kevin.

Anna, you were so good at the auction - you made us smile!

Kevin & Pauline Hill - May 2015

Comment Comment

I have long been a person who felt that estate agents did very little for the fees they charged.  My view has now changed.

Maggs & Allen have worked tirelessly to sort out any problems that have arisen with the sale of our property and have shown a genuine desire to obtain the best possible outcome, regardless of the amount of time and effort involved.  Their work is much appreciated.

Mrs Z Brooks - April 2015

Comment Comment

Maggs & Allen provided a great and professional service throughout the process of selling our house at auction.  It was quickly and very well advertised in local property magazines, newspapers and on the internet.

Many thanks to Rob, he was very helpful and kept us updated throughout the whole unfamiliar process of selling a house at auction.

Mrs S Capel - March 2015

Comment Comment

Having used Maggs & Allen for the first time with the sale of my property, my experience was complete satisfaction with both the process and the professionalism of all the staff concerned.  Many thanks.

Mr N Darvill - March 2015

Comment Comment

We sold our late mother's house at auction with the friendly help of Rob Ansell.  We were very pleased with how the viewings went and how the team kept us up to date at all times.  Good advice was given when needed in relation to offers being made prior to the auction.

I have already recommended Maggs & Allen to someone else who wants to sell at auction.

Thank you to Rob and all at Maggs & Allen from Maxine and family.

Mrs M Jefferies - March 2015

Comment Comment

All my comments regarding the preparation and auctioning of my property are positive.  I could not have asked for a more professional service.

Mr J Britton - December 2014

Comment Comment

We have been very happy with the service Maggs & Allen have provided us in selling our property.

From start to finish they have been professional and courteous.

This is the first time we have chosen to sell at auction and we are pleased we did.

Many thanks to Rob and Anna.

Mr & Mrs R Anderson - November 2014

Comment Comment

I contacted Maggs & Allen in July 2014 to enquire about selling my flat and putting it into auction.  I had been trying to sell it for the past year without success.

Within days of speaking with the team they had valued and been to see the flat and advised me that auction would be my best option as it would be ideal considering it needed so much work.

In September the flat sold at auction and exceeded the price I had expected, I was so thrilled and relieved.  I would like to thank all the team at Maggs & Allen for all their advice and hard work, and a big thank you to Rob Ansell who I spoke to and dealt with as I wasn't local to Bristol and couldn't attend the auction.

Many thanks for being such true professionals!!

Mrs A Wright - October 2014

Comment Comment

Rob and the team at Maggs and Allen provided a professional and efficient service through identifying a preferable disposal strategy and achieving a great sale price at auction. Our client was very pleased.

Mr J Brenner, Capita - March 2015

Comment Comment

From the very begining (2009) Toby Fisher always showed patience as this was quite a decision for us to make. His advice & knowledge of the area and current market was a great asset.

When the final decision was made (2014) Toby was encouraging and helpful - The final result was impressive and we are very happy.

All in all an experience that was made easy by Maggs & Allen, especially Toby and the solicitors.

Mrs Hayward - August 2014

Comment Comment

We sold prior to auction and the advice Anna Maggs gave was very good. Thank you to all.  Anna, Toby and all your support staff.

Mr & Mrs Bennett - October 2014

Comment Comment

Amazing care was taken to keep us up to date with each procedure.  Honesty, straight talking and a positive attitude enabled us to trust Maggs & Allen.

Thank you Rob for your patience and care in this transaction, if we ever sell again I certainly know who I will be asking to work for us.

Mrs Hartley - October 2014

Comment Comment

The land consultant, Toby Fisher provided a very professional and supportive service. Throughout the process M & A kept us very well informed, all and any issues were communicated in a timeley and balanced way. Where parties were in dispute, M & A endeavoured to clarify and negotiate on our behalf and to the benefit of all parties.

Mr Stenner - September 2014

Comment Comment

Dear Anna, now that the sale has completed I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for the excellent service I received from you. Frankly it is the best service I have encountered and I've used various estate agents in Bristol and sold more valuable properties and had nowhere near the level of service that I got from you and your team.
If I ever have a random garage or piece of land to sell again then you will be the company I contact!
Thanks again

Mr A Ward - July 2014

Comment Comment

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Rob Ansell and Maggs and Allen for the efficient and professional way in which they handled the sale of a family house at auction after my mother passed away. From the very first moment I contacted them everything was taken care of in a sensitive and considerate manner and nothing was too much trouble. I found that they were supportive and well informed every step of the way both to myself and the buyer. I then came into contact with Rob and his team a year later when I bought a property at auction and, once again I found the whole process went very smoothly. I would certainly recommend them and , indeed I have done, on several occasions.
