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

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


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 ‘Rookie of the Year’ accolade – well done and well deserved. Rachel Emerson, Element IMF

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

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

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.

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 Phil’s performance at 110%  He always put himself out to talk to me and provide me with a full understanding of the property.  With Phil’s 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

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.

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. Jane Hart

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. Heather Gilbert

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. Lance & Lee Perry

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

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

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.  Phil’s 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.  Phil’s 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 Phil’s persona.
