Phil Mangos

Lifestyle, Horticulture, Rural Specialist

When it comes to buying and selling your property, Phil Mangos understands that it’s not a menial task. Saying farewell to a property that you hold dear, or looking for that new gem to fill with memories can be a daunting time. Understanding this process is the first step to becoming a successful real estate salesperson.




You have been a pleasure to work with and certainly set the bar high in terms of service expectation no other agents actually measured up and delivered anywhere near the level of communication and commitment you showed for us when we were in the purchaser shoes.

Chris & Barbara Whitton


We felt Bayleys was the appropriate agency for our calibre of house, so made enquires through a friend who knew the local franchisee. Phil Mangos was the agent recommended to us and he sold all three properties for us, absolutely exceeding our expectations.

Ross & Katherine Bolus


A big thank you to Phil and Char for all their amazing hard work over selling our subdivision and more recently our house. They have always been very professional and gone that extra mile to ensure the best results for us as sellers. They are both very genuine people who work hard to build that trusting relationship. Would highly recommend them both to anyone looking to sell their property.

Christian & Amanda Richardson


Just a letter of thanks to the great team of Phil , Kelvin and Char who marketed and sold my parents home recently . The communication and professionalism they showed was second to none. We were more than happy with the whole process and there were no nasty surprises or unexpected hurdles. We always felt they were working for us to get the best possible result. I would and have already recommended them to friends.

Hadyn & Kelly Taylor


Phil and Char took on marketing and listing our 33ha property in Lower Kaimais before Christmas. We found Phil to be very knowledgeable on the local market, and advised us around timings and strategy to maximise exposure for our auction, and getting the maximum number of potential buyers into the room on auction day. Phil was respectful, especially when dealing with our staff and tenant who were on site and with whom he had to liaise around showing the property. Phil went the extra mile in trying to get the best outcome for us, and he did this to great success on auction day. We were delighted with both his and Chars professionalism, attention to the market and to their experience. They had detailed and insightful communications, and kept us in the loop without overly or unnecessarily bothering us. We found them to be a winning team and would definitely recommend them. 10 out of 10.

Grant & Lynn Pacey


We recently had Phil market and successfully sell our lifestyle block. We took his experienced advice, and trusted in the process he suggested to ensure we got the most successful sale out of our property. The way he and Char work together made the process as stress free as possible for us and we appreciated the effort abd time they both put into presenting our property to future buyers. The outcome far exceeded our expectations and we would certainly use Phil and Char again in future. Kind regards and thanks again!!

James & Kate McTavish


A big thank you for all your great work with the subdivision. So pleased the kids picked you and your firm to sell their sections. I have been most impressed with how efficient and professional your team and firm have gone about their business. Equally or probably more importantly has been you Phil, your genuine helpfulness, enthusiasm and desire to do your best for our family. I appreciate everything you are doing to get the best for us. I cant speak more highly of you as a genuine honest well balanced human being.

Phil Mangos and his team we found excellent to deal with, in what we thought would be a daunting and stressful task of selling our lifestyle property. Right from the outset their professionalism and process gave us the confidence and peace of mind. We were able to plan 8 months ahead to have our property available and looking its best for viewing by potential purchasers. All the advice and support behind the scenes work was carried out with minimal fuss and bother and we were consulted every step along the way. Phil at all times was a man of his word with heaps of positivism, energy, and enthusiasm. Nothing was ever a problem for him and Char. Lots of people talk about a passion to succeed with a sale, Phil actually lives it and along with a pleasant manner and highest integrity it was a pleasure to work with him and his Bayleys Team.. We would have no hesitation in recommending Phil to any potential vendor. For us what we thought initially a daunting and stressful proposition, turned into a well-managed event with a positive result for all.

Lee & Deb Miller


I approached Bayleys Real Estate agent Phil Mangos when I decided to look at the possibility of selling my Kiwifruit Orchard. During our initial discussion I told Phil I required the best possible price. He replied in that case we should put it up for auction. That was the introduction to how professional agents auction an orchard. Phil and his PR Char gave me excellent support and guidance through the whole process. The publicity and sales campaign was underway within days. I was informed on a weekly basis where the campaign was at and could easily see how it gathered momentum. The progress was fast and furious for 6 weeks and ended in an exciting Auction which I believe gave me the best return I could hope for. The important point for me in this experience was trusting Phil and his team. Trusting them to tell me facts and advise me on that basis.

Jenny Palmer


We are extremely grateful to have had Phil Mangos and his team sell our home at 22 Miles Lane, Tauriko. He is a genuine, warm and highly motivated person who eased us through each step of the selling process. His communication was second to none, giving us guidance and advice when we needed it but we felt in control of the whole process. The marketing campaign was highly professional, well thought out and we commend his efficiency in putting it all together. We received excellent advice regarding presenting our home prior to the photography session, and the walk through video which we felt really showed the essence of the property. We loved the weekly feedback and the campaign clearly reached impressive numbers of people both locally and nationally, in fact our buyer was from Australia. Our home sold at auction after a whirlwind six week campaign for which we highly commend Phil for his hard work and enthusiasm. Thankyou Phil.

Geoff Street & Mandy Ragg


In August 2018 you marketed my 103 hectare grazing property on Wright Road, Bay of Plenty and secured a favourable sale, very timeously. Your actions and those of the Bayley's team where always prompt, professional and friendly. In particular I would like to commend your depth and speed of action. Well done and my thanks.

I wish to put forward this testimonial for Phil Mangos in reference to my purchasing of land on Motiti Island. During the process of deciding to purchase land on Motiti Island Phil was invaluable in providing me with all the necessary information that I needed to make a sound purchase decision. I would rate Phils performance at 110% He always put himself out to talk to me and provide me with a full understanding of the property. With Phils knowledge and honest approach, he stepped me through the whole purchasing process. Once the property went unconditional, Phil continued to keep in contact with me. It was a pleasure working with Phil to purchase our property and as a buyer I was very happy with his level of service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Phil Mangos as an excellent agent.

Ross Green


Phil is a friendly, professional and hardworking agent who was motivated to get us the best possible result. As a grower himself of kiwifruit and avocado, Phil had a clear understanding and knowledge of the horticulture industry which proved invaluable. After visiting our property and talking through the various options, we opted for an auction campaign which, combined with the extensive marketing, generated good interest in our property. Phil kept us informed with each development of the sales campaign from visits, phone calls and reporting, and we appreciated receiving honest feedback. We had four registered bidders bidding under the hammer on auction day and were delighted with the great result. We have no hesitation in recommending Phil for any future real estate needs and would recommend his services to other clients.

Neil & Gaye Magnus


We employed Phil Mangos from Bayleys to market our lifestyle property. He was very professional right from the start and managed the open home days and the advertising etc. He kept us fully informed each week and sat down with us to explain what was happening. The experience with Phil was very pleasant and we both felt very confident in him, he was friendly and courteous at all times and it was a pleasure to know him. We would heartily recommend him to anyone selling or buying real estate.

Gary & Wendy Cooper


Phil Mangos has represented us when selling ten secluded building sites in our subdivision at the end of Minden Road Tauranga. Phil has been very communicative and professional selling all but two of the unique sites with panoramic views of Te Puna and the harbour. He has persisted with the frustration of Council delays and ensured that all buyers have a similar outlook towards house quality and privacy. At all times he has put a successful outcome for us ahead of his personal interest. We would not hesitate to recommend Phil to any vendor looking for representation in his area of activity.

Wayne & Chloe Wright


This time last year Phil was working hard to sell our Busby Road property. We want to take the opportunity to thank Phil for all he did for us and the good outcome of the whole process. We were impressed with Phils integrity and professionalism and very much appreciated his commitment and contact with updates along the way. We would not hesitate to recommend Phil should the opportunity arise.

Colin & Sue Hall


Phil Mangos was recommended to us by another of his clients as a thorough, caring and effective agent. We were impressed by the way he approached us and took particular notice of details of the many features of our property and used them effectively in the sales process. Phil, worked tirelessly, always listening to our ideas, sharing his experience, offering us varied options and recommendations. He was always considerate, loyal and professional in every way. Thank you Phil for your tolerance and perseverance. We would recommend Phil to anyone wishing to sell their property.

Cameron & Carol Henwood


I am extremely happy that I chose Phil to market my property. He was professional at all times, he understood my circumstances and remained confidential throughout the whole marketing campaign. Phil was always honest about feedback that he had received and kept me informed every step of the way. At no stage did I feel pressured to make any decisions and all aspects of the sale process were explained to me fully until the final day when my house sold at Auction. I would like to thank Phil for all his hard work in marketing my property and making the whole process stress free.

Anna MacKinnon


We had a very worthwhile and rewarding experience working with Phil. He was very knowledgeable and displayed significant experience in the kiwifruit industry. He was very personable and kept us updated regularly. He was very considerate of our family life and kept us informed regularly. I have no hesitation in recommending Phil to any prospective clients.

Mohan De Mel


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding efforts in successfully marketing and selling our property. We were very happy with the help, advice and expertise you were able to provide with regard to the type of marketing, and the steps involved in taking our property to auction. And also with the contribution of the Bayleys team in the auction room on the day. We felt comfortable that we were able to contact you at any time and your communication and reporting of progress through the campaign kept us informed. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Pete & Sue O'Brien


As a Real Estate Agent to sell your property I can't rate Phil Mangos highly enough.
I first listed our property with another company, there was a lot of interest, but it did not convert into acceptable offers. Then Phil was referred to me through another satisfied party.
Phil took over the listing and worked extremely hard, bringing in multi offers and finally closing the sale, on what was a set of difficult and unique circumstances.
I found Phil to be very approachable, with proven sales methods and excellent communication skills. As I do not reside in the same area of the country as the place of sale, these attributes of Phil's were both pivotal to the success of the sale and my peace of mind.
I can recommend Phil with confidence.

Maurice & Robyn Pain wish to put forward his testimonial on behalf of Phil Mangos in reference to selling our 20 Hectare bush block on Work Road, Aongatete, Tauranga. From the very first meeting we felt a calm, efficient, courteous and caring approach immediately giving us confidence in Phil. After viewing our property we had our first meeting, very in-depth on the procedure of this exercise explaining each step, presentation, advertising, marketing, open days, the website, TradeMe ETC. Making sure we understood the importance of this big visual and verbal impact. Phils photos and wording were superb for our property sale promotion, generating great interest and visiting on the open day and also the website. Extremely well done. Phils passion and enthusiasm for his work clearly comes through with the caring energy he gave to us as if we are the only people he is dealing with. Amazing! The reports and updates on all information across the board, the feedback he relays and the immediate action to any new feedback that required attention. We found our vendor meetings very informative on all angles, giving us reports on positive progress, all part of Phils persona. Maurice and I found the whole networking team of Bayleys wonderful, the care and reassurance given to us by all involved, the team work in the auction room, was wonderful, calm, efficient and the right touches of humour.
Our negotiating time was handled extremely well with confidence and assurance helping us tremendously to feel calm and positive.
The results of this very, very happy!

Maurice & Robyn Pain


We have sold and purchased property through Phil Mangos and we regard him as one of the best around. Phil is honest, open and trustworthy in his dealings and he works hard to avoid the typical vendor conditioning which can be prevalent and has always listened to our feedback and treated it with respect. Phil adds value to the sales process and his extensive network of businessmen and tradesmen is extremely helpful also. Without sounding corny, we would genuinely have no hesitation in recommending and working with Phil in the future. We were not surprised to hear of his recent Rookie of the Year accolade well done and well deserved.

Rachel Emmerson


Having Phil on board, made the recent sale of my mums lifestyle property, the most stressfree transaction we could ever have imagined.
Outstanding communication, a professional yet down to earth manner, and an informed approach to the market meant the sale happened quickly, and all parties were happy. Phil took over the sale in the nicest way possible, to the point where he took care of everything on the day the keys changed hands; we were not even present. Without hesitation, we would recommend Phil to sell your property, and look forward to be involved with Phil again ourselves in the future."

Linda Burnett


For three years I had been researching lifestyle properties over the Internet and looking and properties as and when could get the time to drive to the Bay of Plenty. Finally I decided to contact Phil and see if he could find the properties that would suit my wife and I. Phil was onto it straight away and helped us to focus on 6 properties, most of which only he knew about. The selection he found for us was great and saved us a lot of time. Phil finally introduced us to a property which we bought through another agent that he put us onto. I still consider the find as one inspired by Phil and his uninvasive and knowledgeable manner were a pleasure to deal with. He certainly showed a lot of knowledge of the WBOP area and knowledge of the lifestyle property market. He was always prepared to step in and help us through the purchase process when we needed him. We are now enjoying the property immensely and have a lot to thank Phil for. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Phil to others to help them through the purchase of a lifestyle property.

Kerry and Sally Hull


Recently I decided to sell my lifestyle property. I was very unsure as to what to expect as I had heard of so many who had had a very stressful experience. Having Phil Mangos as my real estate agent was one of the best decisions I have made. From day 1 he made me feel as if I was in the 'drivers seat'. His communication was outstanding. Every week he would contact me and keep me up to date with potential buyers as well as providing me with a written report. The property sold in a few months and the whole transaction went extremely smoothly. I would highly recommend Phil as a real estate agent for his open communication and honesty and if the need arose he would definitely be the agent of my choice.

Heather Gilbert


Phil Mangos approached us in reference to a property we had been listing with another company for the past couple of years and suggested a fresh marketing perspective. Although we were initially dubious about going to auction he took us clearly through the process and strategies employed and we found this to be the answer. Not only did we come away with a successful outcome within four months but our price expectations were exceeded. We found Phil to be very easy to deal with as he not only listened to our requirements and was clearly working on the best outcome for us, but he also provided honest and useful feedback from viewings and the market in general which allowed us to make informed decisions. We would not hesitate to use Phil again for our next real estate venture and would happily recommend his services to other clients.

Jane & Stephen van Oosterhout


On advice, we elected to place our home with Bayleys Real Estate for them to obtain a sale for us. We had been advised by a friend to contact Phil Mangos as he had dealt with them. We were very impressed with his professional approach to the details. He organised an outstanding coloured brochure which showed the house up exceedingly well. Before we placed the home on the market we had to get the builder to fix a couple of squeaky stairs. Phil told us he had been involved with carpet laying and he offered to lift the carpet where required and replace it when finished. We were grateful to him and he would not accept any payment for it. After three weeks on the market the house was sold for a very acceptable price, for which we were very grateful. Phil has kept in touch with us, which we appreciate, and would recommend him to anyone.
