About Manxmove

Client Testimonials

“Manxmove’s success is not a fluke!”

Initially, I engaged a different estate agent from Manxmove to market my property. This estate agent had previously sold other properties on the estate and knew the local market well. After six months, however, my property had not attracted a single viewing, and the number of online views was disappointing. Then Manxmove listed a similar property to mine on the same estate and sold it within six weeks at a price close to my asking price. I immediately called Manxmove for details and then asked my agent why the buyer of the competing property had not requested to see mine, as I had expected given the similarity and proximity of the properties. My agent felt that Manxmove was just lucky, and the sale did not represent the true state of the market. I accepted this and stuck with my previous agent for another ten months, but then switched to Manxmove after a continued lack of success.

Manxmove did several things differently from my previous agent to improve my chances of a successful sale. First, they produced a set of high-quality photographs that captured the best features of my property. In particular, the lead photograph was better than the one used by the previous agent. Second, Manxmove produced a video to provide a virtual viewing of the property, a service that its competitors do not provide. Third, Manxmove marketed my property on all the main property portals (Zoopla, Prime Location, On the Market) to give it maximum exposure. Fourth, Manxmove publishes market reports twice a year to keep its clients informed about recent developments in the Isle of Man property market, another service that its competitors do not provide.

Manxmove listed my property at only a slightly lower price than my former agent had. Despite this, Manxmove generated more viewings in the first six weeks than my former agent had done in the previous six months. The average daily number of online views more than doubled. A little over four months later, I completed the sale of my property. 

I was very pleased with Manxmove’s service and will use them again in future.

“Thanks to Manxmove for a very easy sale process. “

This was the first time we sold a house and were nervous about all the requirements we might need to fulfil. Manxmove made the whole process very simple.  

Firstly, a very professional valuation agent who gave up to date market advice and was able to assist us in getting the most realistic price for the property. Secondly, friendly office staff who always had the time to answer any queries. 

I would highly recommend Manxmove for your property sale.

“Cannot thank the entire team enough for their help “

First time using Manxmove and found them to be friendly, efficient, honest and professional – what more could you want from a company? Cannot thank the entire team enough for their help and guidance in selling the family home and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

“We found Manxmove as a whole very proactive”

We found Manx move as a whole very proactive, helpful, professional, your website is great, and you are very approachable, so we felt no question was a silly one. 

You adapted to us having Hecky in the garden, and i felt he was safe ( ie the gate wouldn’t be left open after a viewing/photos and him run off etc)

You’re guidance on what to do at each stage of the whole process was much appreciated too.

Thank you so so much, you really did find our dream home, and we can’t wait for many years of happiness there.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and a happy & healthy 2020.

“Selling a property can be stressful as you say but in this instance, not the case.”

Hi Troy  

Just a quick thank you for a thoroughly professional service.
Selling a property can be stressful as you say but in this instance not the case.
After a failed previous sale and little service from another local estate agent, we were recommended to use you by friends on the island who have used you.

If asked I will most certainly recommend your company.

“We cannot recommend Graham and Manxmove more highly”

When it came to buying our first home we could not have asked for a better service than the service we had with Graham at Manxmove. 

After being let down by the service provided by another local Estate Agent, Graham not only gave us professional and honest advice as first time buyers, he managed our expectations and quickly ended up finding our perfect first home that wasn’t even on the open market!

From the start Graham went above and beyond at every single stage of the process to keep us informed, assist where required and work hard to ensure there were no roadblocks in our journey onto the property ladder. Grahams honesty and professionalism meant we were at ease during the entire process, communicating throughout and ensuring we had a home before Christmas. 

Graham was also incredible on the other side of the house purchase, in dealing with a UK based seller. His communication ensured that there was no time lost in the purchase given the situation. Without the service we observed on the other side of the sale it may have delayed the process by a number of weeks or even more. 

If you are thinking of buying, selling or dealing with any property matters on the Isle of Man you cannot find a better service than Manxmove. We cannot recommend Graham and Manxmove more highly to anyone looking for professionalism, honesty and integrity when dealing with your home. When friends of ours are looking to purchase their first property we tell them there is only one choice, Manxmove. 

Thank you Graham!

We Sold a house and bought a bungalow with Manxmove Estate Agents. Excellent service with lots of viewings, good quick feedback and a professional team. I couldn’t think of one bad point in my experience of them throughout the selling process. 

Very good guidance as well with finding and buying the new property. Would recommend them to anyone.

“We have already recommended them to friends. “

We chose Manxmove to sell our house after viewing a house with Ian and being impressed by his friendly, honest and professional approach.Ian’s attention to detail in preparing our listing and photographing the house was so thorough and it was marketed well.  Communication with the team was efficient throughout the process. Fees were very competitive and value for money and there were no hidden extras.

Our experience buying through them was also very positive.  We have already recommended them to friends.

Many thanks again to the team!!

“Helpful agents who will clearly communicate with you each step of the way “

We used Manxmove for both the sale of our property and purchase of our new home and we couldn’t be more pleased with the service we received. From the initial beauty parade of a handful of agents we knew we had chosen the right team. We dealt with Troy and Graham throughout who were on hand at any time to answer questions and to guide the whole process from start to completion.

Despite the rumours of moving house being a stressful event, it didn’t feel that way at any point. Our thanks also need to extend to the rest of the team (in no particular order); Dawn, Amanda, Jamie and Ian  

If you want friendly and helpful agents who will clearly communicate with you each step of the way then we would 100% recommend Manxmove!

“Not that happy with your present estate agent then move to Manxmove! “

We decided to engage with”Manxmove” service following recommendations from friends and by reading all the positive testimonials. .

We received sound advice from Graham in terms of pricing and marketing our property, in a friendly and non pressurised manne. On the day Ian came to photograph the house, he had matched us with a prospective buyer. A full asking price offer was made to us a few hours later, even before our property went 
“ live” on the “ Manxmove” website.  

ALL of the staff at “ Manxmove” we’re professional and helpful,  making the sale of our property a comprehensive journey. 
We highly recommend “Manxmove” and wish them every success in the future. 

If you are already trying to sell a property and not that happy with your present estate agent then move to Manxmove!

“They have always provided a gold star service “

In the last couple of years, I have worked with Manxmove to either sell or rent properties out and they have always provided a gold star service.

I feel that one of the most important areas for a vendor when selling a property is feedback after a viewing and Manxmove are excellent at communicating back to their clients and in a very timely manner.

I would highly recommend their services to anyone who either has a property to sell or rent out, you will not be disappointed.

If you are already trying to sell a property and not that happy with your present estate agent then move to Manxmove!

“Only 48 hours from pictures being taken to acceptable offer “

Hi Graham,

Just wanted to say many thanks for dealing with our recent sale in Governors Hill. Feel free to use the below as a testimonial on your website.

We were impressed by the turnaround time – only 48 hours from pictures being taken to offer ! We can see that you work very hard to market properties using every available media channel to get maximum coverage. You always answered our queries quickly even out of hours and were quick to help when we had a small issue close to completion. We would’t hesitate to recommend Manxmove

“You recognised and appreciated we needed time to look “

Dear Manxmove,

We just wanted to write and say thank you for all your help with our move.

Thank you too for the brilliant and unique card with the photo of the house and the key ring gift. We really appreciated it. It has pride of place on our new keys.

May we thank you once again especially in recognising how important our first viewing was and giving us the time to view the house knowing we had flown in. You recognised and appreciated we needed time to look and consider the house and for that we are very appreciative. Not all estate agents recognised this!

Thank you once again.

“Being impressed by Manxmove’s social media presence and their well-presented webpage “

Dear Manxmove,

After a long period with another local Estate Agent where we had very few viewings and feedback we decided to switch Estate Agents. Being impressed by Manxmove’s social media presence and their well-presented webpage we had no hesitation in contacting Ian to arrange a meeting.

We were very impressed with Ian’s optimism and willingness to both offer advice and listen to our requirements. When we made the switch, Ian visited us to take details and photographs and the property was quickly advertised on their web page and social media, which was quickly followed up with multiple viewings and resulted in an offer within a matter of weeks and subsequent sale.

We would highly recommend using Manxmove to sell your property and assist you in finding your new house.

“If you’re serious about selling your home: it’s got to be Manxmove”

After our house had been on the market with another agent for a few months, we took a friend’s advice and invited Manxmove to give their honest opinion on where we’d gone wrong. Inevitably it was the price – too high, Graham said – but he added that if we dropped it, then Manxmove would stress to anyone interested that we weren’t going to accept any lower offers.

We liked their no nonsense approach so (slightly reluctantly) took their advice – and sure enough, and after about half a dozen viewings, within weeks we had not one, but two asking price offers. It wasn’t all plain sailing, but eventually the sale went through and we’re now back in the UK with ‘our’ house, someone else’s home.

We can’t stress enough how pleased we were with the service. Every viewing was accompanied – and we were given feedback immediately (usually within five minutes!). Once we’d agreed the sale, it was up to our buyers’ lender and the advocates – and although there were some gliltches, Troy kept us informed about what was (and wasn’t) happening – exactly what you need from your agent.

So, if you’re serious about selling your home: it’s got to be Manxmove.

“So impressed with the professionalism and expertise of you and your team”

Dear Graham,

I am only too pleased to provide a testimonial. From the minute you walked into my flat, I knew I wanted you to sell my property for me. You had already done your homework and your dynamism was reassuring as I wanted to sell quickly. I have been so impressed with the professionalism and expertise of you and your team. I have been singing your praises to my friends and contacts already. As far as I am concerned, Manxmove is the best Estate Agent to use on the Isle of Man.

Thank you so much for all your help. I am now happily settled in England.

Kind regards

“Always available”

We used Manxmove to help sell my mother in law’s home and they were absolutely fantastic. Always available on the other end of the phone and always mindful of how utterly stressful and emotional the whole roller coaster of selling a property is. We would use their services again without hesitation!

Thank you Ian and the team, you have been wonderful!

“I can not recommend Manxmove enough”

From start to finish I have been impressed by the friendly and positive support from all of the team.

After being with another estate agent for a while and not getting anywhere I decided to switch to Manxmove after hearing positive reports.

Unfortunately for me after accepting an offer and being ready to move the buyer let me down and the sale fell through. Manxmove (Ian) were straight on the phone and very understanding and enthusiastic to get it re-advertised and promoted cross social media.

Within a week I had had a number of viewings and had accepted another offer. With my uncertainty after last time Manxmove (Troy) was brilliant in providing regular updates and communication.

I have already and will continue to recommend Manxmove.

Many thanks for all your time, enthusiasm and dedication in selling my flat.

“Manxmove to sell my home as he was engaging, enthusiastic and very attentive”

After meeting Ian I chose Manxmove to sell my home as he was engaging, enthusiastic and very attentive – I felt that he would work hard to market the property and was the type of agent I would want to buy a house from.

After listing the house it was advertised across multiple social media platforms generating good interest. Viewings were scheduled around my shift pattern, and I received useful same day feedback from each viewing.

Jamie, Ian and the Manxmove team worked hard to follow up with interested parties; kept me informed of ongoing discussions and helped facilitate arrangements for quotes and surveys.

I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home on the Isle of Man.

Buying a house through Manxmove was a smooth and efficient process. Ian was quick to answer any questions and he was easy to contact. The team at Manxmove are friendly and approachable.

They are ready to help with any problems big or small. It is clear that they are a reliable agency and provide a great experience all around.

The Manxmove team couldn’t have been more helpful

Dear Ian,

We weren’t actively looking to sell our property but we knew the house we were in wasn’t where we were meant to stay.

We approached Ian and the team at Manxmove to discuss options with them on how we can sell. They never pressurised us into using them and were happy to put the property on the market without advertising it in the public eye.

Once we did decide it was the time to sell, the team couldn’t have been more helpful. They came around for updated photos and kept us up to date with all our viewings (which they fitted around when worked best for us). Even when the first sale of the property didn’t go to plan, Ian and the team were positive and kept us in the loop about other options and how best to move forward.
We would recommend Manxmove when selling a house.

“Four years with another agent then sold with Manxmove in 24 hours”

Hi Graham

We are well settled in and love our new home! It is perfect for us and we cannot thank you enough for all your help.

I would happily recommend Manxmove. We stagnated for nearly four years with another agent with little or no input from them. We moved to you and sold within 24 hours!

I genuinely felt that the service was excellent and the level of communication and information sharing was great. It really helped to have your mobile number so that I could contact you quickly if I was in a flap about anything. You always responded promptly and helpfully which gave me huge reassurance through such a nerve wracking process.

I have already recommended Manxmove to friends as the service was personal, reassuring, swift and approachable. It felt like we were important to you, even though we were only selling a low value property.

Thanks for your help also in purchasing our dream home!

‘We were very impressed with the positivity and team work you all showed throughout’

Hi Ian

Just a note to say how pleased we were with the service provided by Manxmove.

From the start we were very impressed with the positivity and team work you all showed throughout. And the way in which the other agents took over from you as lead when required. Not forgetting the office-based staff who were equally great.

As you know, we had initially been a little unsure about using a predominantly web-based agency but we found out how wrong we were!

Thank you so much for all you have done

Kind regards

‘We would recommend Manxmove to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property’

We met Ian by chance whilst viewing one of Manxmove’s properties. Ian explained how Manxmove operate and he was very open and honest from the outset. We moved our property over to Manxmove and they have totally changed our opinion of how estate agents should operate.

Our main compliment regarding Manxmove, but in particular Ian, was the incredible communication. Ian and his team kept us up to date at every opportunity, from viewing feedback, purchaser offers, and all the way through the conveyance stage. The team also proactively tried to source suitable properties for us to view, and ultimately we have bought sold and purchased properties through Manxmove.

We will only use Manxmove in the future as our experience has been so positive and we have highly recommended them to all our family and friends.

A Smooth process with excellent communication

We used Manxmove to sell our house because we had heard very good comments about the company from our friends who had previously used them.

There were no surprises as Ian and Graham helped us a lot and made this potentially stressful process very smooth with excellent communication throughout during both the marketing and the sale.

Once again thank you very much Manxmove.”
