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.




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.

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.

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.

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.
