Luscombe Maye offer quality service to all buyers.

“What I do wish to state is that each and every time we come back to Luscombe Maye and in particular dealing with you and Liz at the South Brent office is just how you deal with us as buyers. Both your manner and the way you allow us to approach the property and have all the information to hand, or you can gain this for us in a short period of time, which all we are very pleased to have.

We have had some absolutely awful viewings and very unprofessional service from some agents, who we really wish not to deal with anymore… But not with Luscombe Maye.”

Jason And His Team Offer Superb Service

“Dear Jason,


Now we have succeeded in selling xxxx, I want to thank you and the team (Joanna, Antonia and Denise) for looking after the sale so well over these last months. I am particularly grateful that I was not pressured into agreeing to steps with which I was uncomfortable, like displaying a sale board or having a video tour, even though I am sure they make good sense in most cases. I am also grateful that the pricing advice was realistic so the stress and uncertainty was not prolonged and that you were prepared to press the buyer to accept my timetable and keep tabs on what was or was not happening throughout.

Your willingness to spend time to discuss the options and timing helped me to come to the best conclusion, even though it meant that getting xxxx ready to sell and then moving was a considerable challenge, especially with current restrictions. I certainly should not want to have left the taking of this step until I was any older. and I was very fortunate to do it when I could have so much family support.”


I am certainly grateful that I was persuaded to ‘stay local’ in my choice of agent. Your knowledge of the market was invaluable.”


With kind permission of Mrs S  of Yealmpton

Hard-Working Even Through Lockdown...

“I have just sold my house using the South Brent office of Luscombe Maye and they were also the agent acting for the vendors of the house I bought. I would recommend them. Liz, Luc and James were always responsive – calls were returned and e mails answered and on both transactions I felt they worked hard, listened and were proactive.”

Mrs. H

Five Star Review for Quality Agents...

Many thanks for your hard work, patience, professionalism and sense of humour!

It’s been quite a journey; buying and selling in the village whilst moving lock stock and barrel from hundreds of miles away in the middle of the pandemic, but you have supported us every step of the way and helped us find our dream home.

Five stars for a great service! We would highly recommend Luscombe Maye.

Luscombe Maye: Professional, Helpful and Friendly...

All the staff at Luscombe Maye have been very professional and helpful to my brother and I in getting our property sold and I can’t thank them enough for all they have done to bring the sale to a satisfactory conclusion. We definitely couldn’t have done it without them. Many, many thanks once again.

Regards, Mr. F

I would like to express my gratitude towards all the staff at Luscombe Maye in Newton Ferrers .

Zero hassle in selling my house with Luscombe Maye...

I want to thank you for all your help and hard work during the sale of my house in Ashburton.


In my dealings with Luscombe Maye I have been struck by the courtesy, efficiency and total professionalism of staff which has made a stressful process so much easier for me.

I wouldn’t think of using any other agent than Luscombe Maye in the future.

Excellent Service even in Lockdown

We were very pleased with the service we received from Luscombe Maye. Our house purchase was a bit more complicated than usual because of a covenant and also as it coincided with lockdown. Liz was incredibly helpful and tenacious in moving things forward, especially in acting as the liaison between us and the buyer and also at times between the solicitors.  We can’t thank her enough and would highly recommend Luscombe Maye as a professional and approachable estate agent.

Helpful and Responsive...

Liz at Luscombe Maye South Brent office was fantastic throughout the whole process of selling our property.   We had a few set backs but Liz guided us through these and ensured our sale stayed on track.  The service we received was excellent, always responsive to our needs and swift to resolve any issues that arose.  Liz was extremely helpful in answering our queries promptly and kept us informed at each stage of the process.  We cannot recommend Luscombe Maye highly enough.

Luscombe Maye have once again excelled...

James and Diane at Luscombe Maye have once again excelled in their services. When I purchased the property through Luscombe Maye 3 years ago, I knew they would be the best people for the job when I came to sell.
The property was sold before it was even listed, thanks to James and Diane’s impeccable understanding of what their client’s on their buying books were looking for.
Just 7 weeks from valuation to completion with excellent communication and liaison with both solicitors, as well as securing a sale at the asking price, I could not have asked for anything more. The Modbury office of Luscombe Maye is everything an estate agents should be and more!

Supportive and professional...

Selling my house during the very difficult time of Brexit and the recent virus was challenging for everyone but the team at South Brent were very supportive and professional and positive throughout the process. They were always accommodating and Liz Edwards, in particular, was great.

Totally Professional

The Yealmpton Team
The Yealmpton Team

From the day I instructed Luscombe Maye they were totally professional. The photographs were of the highest standard and presented the house so effectively that I sold almost immediately. All of the staff are friendly, polite and efficient. I paid a competitive rate of commission and yet the service I received was clearly superior. The communication has been faultless and I was always aware of what was happening at any given time. Joanna expertly ensured the momentum of the chain never wavered. I would encourage anyone in the marketplace to trust Luscombe Maye.

Well informed, polite and helpful.

The Modbury Team

You have sold this house for me in the last three months.

The staff of the Modbury office were all well informed, polite, helpful and fitted in with my requests.

I greatly appreciated their help.

May I recommend Luscombe Maye in Modbury?

The Modbury Team

May I recommend Luscombe Maye in Modbury to anyone considering moving home. James and Diane have both been tremendous! They kept us informed all the way through the process and helped a great deal when some of the legal stuff took a few twists and turns.

Thank you James and Diane.

We had no hesitation ...

The Modbury Team
The Modbury Team

Having purchased our home through Luscombe Maye’s Modbury office some 15 years ago, we had no hesitation in returning to them to arrange its sale.  They provided sensible advice on asking price, and produced a very effective sales brochure that generated numerous viewings, which they conducted with efficiency and generated written feedback after each.  Once an offer had been made and accepted, they dealt with the prospective buyers’ successive demands with tact, efficiency and patience.  On a personal level, James, Diane and Amanda have always made us feel welcome in the office and worked hard to try to find us a property that met our future needs.

If I say they were fantastic, it is an understatement...

Luscombe and Maye took on selling our house in Chillington earlier this year.  If I say they were fantastic, it is an understatement.  We were treated with courtesy and respect all the way through the process and not only did they get a fast sale for us, we felt that we had made friends along the way.  I know for a certain that on the other side, the buyer, a stranger to us at the beginning, is also completely satisfied too and was treated in the same manner by Gillian Caunter and her Luscombe and Maye team.  We will use them again gladly.

Thank you James, Amanda and Kate for your five star service.

My wife and I used Luscombe Maye to sell a property in Totnes. We went to Luscombe Maye as our research showed they sold more properties than any other agent in town.

James Rideout provided excellent advice and certainly knows his market and potential buyers.

They sold the property quickly, at a higher price than we expected, and then chased the sale extremely well, keeping us well informed at all times.

Jeremy and Kate

Highly recommended.

These guys have their fingers on the local property situation and offer an excellent and very effective service. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much...

Thank you very much for your kind attention and time the other week showing us various properties in Newton & Noss. You have certainly helped us with our decisions to move to the South West area.

Mrs C

Most friendly and helpful!

We were very pleased with the service – most friendly and helpful.

Mrs B

We would not hesitate to recommend you!

Dear Amanda

Thank you for this – and more particularly, thank you to all the team for your success in selling our house, and your manner of doing business, which made our dealings with you very easy. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any friends, and wish you very well in future.

With best wishes

Fabulous - We will be back!

Very personal service. Thanks so much team.

Ms B

Very helpful and friendly...

We found the whole team at Luscombe Maye, Kingsbridge very helpful and friendly. The whole process of buying the house was a pleasure including viewings of houses we did not purchase. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Mr J

Excellent Service

Execellent service from the first and always with a smile. Thanks ever so much to Harvey, Liz and Hannah for all the trouble you took to find me a good buyer and also to secure my chosen property – always with a smile.

Mr S

Very pleased with all the staff...

Plenty of properties were made available for viewing and we’re really pleased with the property we have found. We hope we’ll never move again, but we would come to Luscombe Maye!


Amanda & Nicki were amazing

Amanda and Nicki were amazing in the help, advice and contats they provided. Without their introduction we would have been at a loss. Altogether brilliant service!

Mr L

By far the best viewing we have had...

Whilst house searching in the area we have met a lot of local agents and Luscombe Maye, Newton Ferrers have been helpful, thoughtful and friendly agents. They take the time to get to know you and fill you in on the local area and seem to ‘get’ what you are looking for very quickly. A viewing with Fiona was of particular note which led me to write this review, by far the best viewing we have had and it was very much down to her. Great ability to make you feel comfortable and answer questions you didn’t know you had without ever feeling pushy. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

A great service all round...

A great service all round, honest and realistic advice on valuation, regular feedback on viewings and progress updates through to completion –

exactly what you want when selling !!

James and Diane did us a great job.

Excellent advice and service...

Good Morning Chris,

I am writing to thank you and your outstanding team for the excellent advice and service you all gave us in the sale of our home. Pitching the price right, very good marketing and a personal service to seller and buyer  no doubt significantly helped with the successful sale, both parties being pleased with the sale.

As a chartered surveyor myself I could not have wished for a better service, well done and thanks to you all

Don’t know what I would have done without you!

Dear Harvey and Antonia

Thank you so much for your kindness and on going support during what has been a difficult process for me. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Much success and happiness for the future.

Thank you so much...

Dear Harvey and Antonia

Thank you so much for all your help in securring the [property] for us. We are settling in really well and thoroughly enjoying the garden.

You have made a dream come true

Dear Amanda and team

The words “thank you” are insignificant, but for once words do fail us!  C and I are so appreciative of your help, support and belief in the project to extend our home.

You have made a dream come true.

Thank you.

We love our new home!

Dear James

A belated thank you to you and Amanda for all your help and support in finding us our new home.

From our first contact with Amanda, Diane and yourself it became obvious that your agency is a cut above the rest and the care and the help offered to us by you all throughout was simply fabulous.

Without your persistence with the solicitors I have no doubt that the move could have been in jeopardy so a big thank you for that.

We are delighted to be new residents of Modbury and we love our new home!

Thank you for going the extra mile...

Dear Amanda, Diane & James

We just wanted to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to you all for all your hard work in selling our house. We really appreciated your friendliness, patience and that you work so well together as a team. Thank you for going the extra mile!

A huge thank you!

Dear James and team,

A huge thank you to all at the Modbury Office of Luscombe Maye.

We greatly appreciate the help and advice you all gave us during the sale of our home.

A very professional service during what can be a very stressful time.

A quick response to all our queries through a friendly and good humoured approach.

with best wishes,

Nicola and Bruce Crawford.

You found the perfect purchaser...

Just writing to say thank you for all you have done with the sale of my parents’ house which has been my home whilst caring for them both for the last five years. You found the perfect purchaser who has been very patient whilst waiting for the Probate to come through and I hope they will enjoy their new home as much as we have. You have all all been very helpful and understanding and I wish you every success for the future.

Luscombe Maye excels and it is pleasing to see so many boards around the village which can only confirm that the village has a very high regard for the attention and care you all give.

This is simply to thank you (and Roger were he still working with you!) for your positive collaboration and helpfulness through the sale of [Property].

Ian Blackler has worked for the family for three generations and it has continued to be a pleasure to be involved with Luscombe Maye.

I’m sure that my brother and I will be in touch again if we decide to sell other of our properties. I shall try to steer my cousins in your direction too!

All best wishes

Luscombe Maye spent ten months working on the sale of a long-term rental property that needed considerable amounts of renovation work. After a large number of viewings they secured a non-chain buyer at a great price in the first 90 days. Over the next four months the buyers spent a considerable amount of time debating many points and finally pulled out of the sale. Luscombe Maye swung back into action immediately, and despite the weather conditions causing maintenance issues, found another buyer at an acceptable price within two weeks. Thanks to their unstinting efforts we were able to then move to completion in just one month.


Throughout James, Amanda and Diane remained upbeat and positive, responding quickly to queries and providing sensible, practical advice.

Thank you

We would like to thank all of the team at Luscombe May for all the support & advice they gave during the purchase of our new property. The team were highly responsive & motivated. Our purchase completed really quickly without any issues

Happy New Year!

Dear Sally and Cathy,

Happy New Year!

We just wanted to thank you both for your excellent service in letting the [property] for us once again. We would have written earlier but we have had two weeks in Scotland just before Christmas and we are just getting back to normal.

Sally was always very patient and efficient in dealing with some tricky applicants, except when they promised to turn up but failed to do so! Sally kept us in the picture throughout even when there was a quiet period. And thanks to Cathy for sorting out the admin too.

So thanks once again.

Best wishes…

A big thank you

Dear Andrew

Thank you for the photographs, but most of all, a big thank you for all your kindness and support throughout the last few weeks when letting the cottage. It has been a difficult time for me , and you have been so helpful in finding new tenants, and seeing everything through with Cathy. I am extremely grateful.

Kindest regards.

A job well done!

Dear Cathy, Lillie and Andrew

Thank you all for everything you have done.  A job well done!

Many thanks.

Profoundly Grateful

Fiona and Alex,

I do, of course, realise that you are acting for your client rather than us but we are extremely grateful for all the help you have given us during the purchase of the Farmhouse.

We have really appreciated your advice during our search and your efficiency and willing cooperation once we had decided. You have both helped to make it a hassle free transaction and we are profoundly grateful.

Thank you both.

Friendly and professional

The staff were very friendly and professional. They gave excellent advice and helped me sell the property painlessly.


Jason, Joanna Denise have all been superb in their combined. Help in selling my cottage . I cannot thank them enough.

Very professional

Very professional, helpful and more than ready to help with any of our queries.

Excellent service

Excellent service with meticulous attention to detail, totally professional , and always keeping us up to date with developments

'Not the easiest job'

Jason and Joanne were excellent in their efforts to sell our house. It was not the easiest job, but they actually sold the lifestyle opportunities to the Customer to whom they were most appropriate. They kept us in the picture right through and chased the buyer’s solicitor when necessary. Well done !

Excellent estate agent

Excellent estate agent. Jason, Joanna and Denise where very informative all the the way through the sell. Would differently use again and will recommend.thank you to the team Luscombe Maye.

Every step of the way

Every step of the way in an occasionally fraught process the team at LM in Yealmpton were supportive, knowledgeable and pro-active in helping us to secure the property. It was at Jo’s suggestion that we viewed the house, Denise conducted the viewings and the negotiation and Jason was always on hand with an encouraging word and a well placed phone call. Thank you!

Worked with for over 30 years

I appointed Luscombe Maye to sell my mother’s house and they did a very good job earning her quite a lot more than I thought it was worth. They are a firm that I have known and worked with for over 30 years and have never heard a bad word about them.

We were delighted

We were delighted with the service received when purchasing a buy to let investment from the Luscombe Maye team at Yealmpton. We contacted them again with a view to selling our own house and whilst we decided not to proceed, they could not have been more friendly and professional. Would definitely do business with them again.

Mr Caslake and his two lovely ladies

The Luscombe Maye Kingsbridge office has sold our home and we have now secured a new home through the Modbury office. The management must be congratulated for providing excellent and consistent customer service across the firm. Mr Caslake and his two lovely ladies have really helped us through such a stressful experience as we have not moved home for many, many years. Thank you for being so patient with us old folk.

The excellent staff of Luscombe Maye

My wife & I have recently moved to the South Hams, and were very particular abut what we were looking for – aren’t we all. During our search we were assisted by the excellent staff of Luscombe Maye – and have to say that they really were exceptional. Nothing was too much for them; they know the area so well we felt we were in safe hands. When we come to move house again, we will definitely use Luscombe Maye to sell our property, and hope that we would find one to buy through them as well, so we don’t have to deal with any other Agents. Well done Luscombe Maye, and thank you.


Wow! Such a brilliant showcase office. In a completely different league to any other estate agent in Salcombe. Spacious, well lit and a great place to see your property displayed. But there is more… those two young ladies working the counter are so professional and the owner, Chris Davy is the perfect Salcombe gent with connections in all the right places. Next time we’re down and looking for another investment we’ll definitely be using this firm. Great waterside location. Great staff. Couldn’t say more. Big thanks!

Very friendly and very helpful

Very friendly and very helpful team in South Brent.

Well informed and courteous

I have spent the past few months looking at properties in the totnes area and I have been continuously impressed with the service provided. Everyone at the totnes office has been friendly, well informed and courteous – a pleasure to deal with.

The best advice and service

Jason and Sally gave us the best advice and service from the Yealmpton office. Building a relationship with your estate agent is very important and we would definately recommend Luscombe Maye .

I was very happy with the service

I was happy with the service that you and your colleagues provided over the sale of my house.

Diane was principally involved with the day to day activities and handled all issues efficiently and professionally.

Thank you therefore for your excellent service,

We have been very happy with the service from Luscombe Maye

We have been very happy with the service from Luscombe Maye and have found you all to be helpful and professional throughout, including when things got difficult. We will be keen to use your services when we move in future, although we’re hoping not to want to move for many years!

A big thank you to you both

A big thank you to you both for helping us sell [our property] so quickly.

We really enjoyed working alongside you and your professional and friendly manner was first class.

Having bought and sold a few properties over the years we both agreed that this was the smoothest transaction we have experienced…down to you guys.

So thank you most sincerely for your efforts which were greatly appreciated.

I have to congratulate you

Dear James

I have to congratulate you and the whole team on bringing our sale to a successful conclusion. At every step your service and professionalism has been exemplary. The final process was protracted, through no fault of yours,  but throughout, your communication with us, and clearly among yourselves,  was both exceptional and reassuring.

Thank you very much

Dear James,

Thank you very much, I believe I speak for the both of us when I say that the service we have received from you all at Luscombe Maye has been excellent. I would highly recommend you and I would definitely use your services again if we were ever in a position to sell/purchase. Thank you all at Luscombe Maye

Best Regards

Mr & Mrs C

We cannot praise Luscombe Maye highly enough

We cannot praise Luscombe Maye highly enough for their professional, friendly, considerate approach during the selling of our house. James and his team made us feel special at all times. Thank you James again for your efforts and kind attention.

Thanks for all the hard work

Thanks for all the hard work you, and all the team at Luscombe Maye have done on our behalf.

I am extremely grateful to Luscombe Maye

I am extremely grateful to Luscombe Maye for their professionalism and courteous manner that I was shown by every member of the team in Modbury. As a first time buyer on my own, this could have been a very stressful and daunting experience, but each of the team showed kindness and respect to me throughout my journey with them. Amanda was particularly knowledgeable of the area during the property viewings and even took the time to show me additional properties in the area so I could confirm that the type of property I had initially viewed was the right one for me. When the solicitors were delayed in their responses, James was proactive in assisting to move the process along and complete the sale. All in all I would definitely recommend Luscombe Maye not just for their professionalism and efficiency but also for their personable manner, something which is rare to find in todays market. 

Kind Regards, 

Ms K

Excellent service from our Modbury office.

The staff at Luscombe Maye offered excellent service throughout the sale and purchase of my property. My queries were always answered promptly, their local knowledge was a great asset, and they provided excellent feedback to viewings. This was a very difficult sale for me and I am very grateful to James and Diane for the support they provided. 


I do hope you will drop in for that cup of tea. 


Kind regards 


Mrs W

I am very happy to recommend you.

I am very happy to recommend you.  We found your advice at the beginning of the sale process invaluable.  Ours was not a straightforward decision and your understanding of the way that potential buyers would think about our property turned out to be spot on.  We were also grateful for the good communication while the house was being marketed.  Perhaps most of all, we were very impressed by your handling of the final stages of the sale, where you judged the interest of competing buyers perfectly and secured a sale price significantly above the amount we had anticipated.  Many thanks for all your help.





So many thanks to you for all your hard work

Dear Jason

I understand that we have now all exchanged!

So many thanks to you for all your hard work.

Without your ‘dash of mercy’ today we would have been in a real predicament.

I hope you took the car and not your bike!

Your service has been exemplary and I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who may want to sell their property.

Speak to you soon.


Great diplomacy

Dear Jason,

The buyer was singing your praises and said how helpful and effective you had been – and you weren’t obviously even acting for them.

I am in total agreement and just want to say how pleased both P. and I are with your very professional service.

You are very effective and have great diplomacy when the need arises.

We really appreciate that you don’t shrink away when the difficult conversations are needed and instead you seem to find a satisfactory way through the problems.

You have definitely earned your commission for this house sale and we will happily recommend you and the team to anyone who cares to listen.

Thank you

You have been a star!

Thank you so much for finding us a beautiful home with lovely landlords and for helping us through all this. You have been a star.

Beloved Ringmore

I still cannot believe we have got to this point! It means so much to me to stay in my beloved Ringmore and I am so grateful to you and Diane.

Dear Diane and James

Just wanted to express our sincerest thanks for the way you conducted both the sale of our house and purchasing our new home. Our last move was a very long 37 years ago and having decided to make the move we were slightly nervous about the whole process. However, we were delighted to find Luscombe Maye in Modbury the most friendliest and professional of people, with realistic valuations and advice. Our thanks to the lovely Diane and James who made both sale and purchase easy and relatively stress-free. Sadly, but hopefully, we won’t be needing your services again in the foreseeable future but will value your continuing friendship, and recommend you to all and everyone thinking of moving house.
With best wishes


Thank you to all at your Modbury office for handling all in such a brilliant way.

We were delighted...

We were delighted with the help given to us by James and Paul at Luscombe and Maye, Modbury, in purchasing our new home.
They kept in touch throughout the process, were always available to offer good advice which enabled our purchase to progress smoothly and meet our timescales.
Mr & Mrs S

Thank you so much

Please may I take this opportunity to thank you so much for all of your efforts and assistance in getting to this position.
I hope our paths will cross again one day (maybe when we give up work and move back to sunny South Devon).
I hope Dads pictures of old Yealmpton will be of use to you and maybe sit nicely somewhere in your offices one day for all your customers to enjoy.
All the very best to both of you
Kind regards

Positive and focussed...

I cannot recommend the Luscombe Maye team at Modbury highly enough. Every encounter with them was dealt with professionally, from the original appraisal through to the handing over of keys. My sale took longer than anticipated and they remained positive and focussed throughout, following up as needed and maintaining a charming and courteous approach. Nothing was too much trouble.

Selling and buying...

Selling and buying your house is said to be one of the most stressful things you can do. All I can say is that James, Diane and Hugh at Luscombe Maye really helped to make the whole process bearable.
Not only did they sell my house at a reasonable price, but they also found me a perfect home to buy. They knew exactly what I was looking for, and when it came onto the market they rang me straight away. Six weeks later I moved in.
With their help in keeping the communication lines open between all parties involved, and queries or problems were resolved quickly. This helped enormously in speeding the whole process up. So a very big THANK YOU to everyone at Modbury Luscombe Maye.

Extremely helpful

James and Diane at Luscombe Maye, Modbury were extremely helpful  in what was a very difficult purchase due to our buyers letting us down at the last minute. They did a fantastic job of keeping things running smoothly until completion with our new buyers. You only know how good a company is when you have a problem. Thank you, James and Diane

Really welcoming...

Hi Sally, thanks for your efforts in looking out for a property for us. I know its your job, however, I’d like to let you know I am viewing a property through [an agent] tomorrow, which I’m not likely to take. The reason I’m telling you this is the initial contact I’ve made with them isn’t anywhere near as comfortable and friendly as contact with you. I don’t wish to embarrass you but your customer service and personality was really welcoming and friendly. I guess you don’t get many compliments in your game so I thought I’d let you know. Take care I hope you can help in the future, kind regards.

30 years of working relationships

We have enjoyed over 30 years of working relationships with [Luscombe Maye] both with our business dealings and on a personal basis. It was for that reason that we continue to use your Company and because we have known Roger and Jason for a very long time. We were happy with your service and it would be our choice to use you again if we have property to sell in the areas that you cover.
Best wishes

Very impressed

As buyers, we were very impressed and happy with the service we received from Joanna and Jason at your Yealmpton office. Both extended time and courtesy to us and were responsive to our questions. As I told them on the day I collected the keys to our new front door, we would certainly engage them to sell [our property] for us when the time comes (albeit this is unlikely to be any time soon!).

May all your sales be timely

I cannot recommend the Luscombe Maye team at Modbury highly enough. Every encounter with them was dealt with professionally, from the original appraisal through to the handing over of keys. My sale took longer than anticipated and they remained positive and focussed throughout, following up as needed and maintaining a charming and courteous approach. Nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you both. May all your sales be timely!

Fantastic, tireless efforts

We want to thank the team at Luscombe Maye for their fantastic, tireless efforts to secure the sale of our property at Bigbury on Sea.  We have been most impressed with their dedication to us as clients.  They always went the extra mile to achieve a successful outcome.  In contrast to another South Hams agent who marketed our property initially, Luscombe Maye really worked hard for us, and communicated with us all the time.  It was first class service.

Luscombe Maye

The Luscombe Maye team at Modbury have recently and quickly sold my cottage for me exactly as I wished. Mr N.

Many thanks...

Many thanks to you and Andy for being so helpful and efficient in setting up the tenancy. Moving house is always stressful but you’ve both made the process much easier for [name] and myself.
Best Regards

Efficiently and effectively

Thank you once again for all your help with everything during my time at [property]. You have dealt with everything so efficiently and effectively and have made the whole process so easy and painless, so thank you!
All the best,

Dear Antony

I’m very pleased that the above sale has now gone through successfully and wanted to thank you and your staff for their work which has enabled this to reach a conclusion.
I’m well aware that this probably wasn’t an easy property to sell, so its success illustrates the skills and abilities of those in your team who have also kept me informed, whenever necessary, which has been much appreciated.
Kind regards
Yours sincerely

Staff there are a credit to the industry

My wife and I recently purchased [Property], Modbury through the local branch of Luscombe Maye. I would just like to give your staff Di Jakubowska and Hugh a special mention as nothing was too much trouble and they arranged access whenever we wanted and generally conducted themselves in a friendly and professional manner.

A special thank you must go to Di for persuading my wife to view the property as my wife didn’t have any intention of looking at it but Di persuaded her it ticked all the boxes. Having now moved in we absolutely love it and that’s directly because of Di so thank you so much from both of us!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Luscombe Maye, Modbury to anyone in the future, the staff there are a credit to the industry.

Dear Cathy

Thank you very much for … all of your help and assistance over the last 5 years. You have made everything simple and straightforward for me over this period of time and it really is appreciated.
Best regards

Just wanted to express my thanks to the team at Modbury but most especially Diane Jakobovska for being so helpful in finding my mother a house in Modbury .
It has been a long year of selling a large house, losing the first house she wanted to buy and then finally finding just the right one and this extremely stressful process was made much more bearable with the help of Diane, who kept us informed and advised at all stages, her patience and professionalism are an asset to your company.
With very many thanks

I am very pleased to say that the sale went through almost effortlessly (for me!) and the staff worked closely with me and the purchaser to bring the deal to a rapid conclusion.
From the date that the tenants moved out until the buyers moved in was just 9 weeks, which included pushing things through with the respective solicitors, inspite of the Christmas and New Year break, no mean feat! The house was put out on the market one week after the property was empty and, within three days, Lynette Schofield had conducted 15 viewings and Piers Whiting kept me up to date with feedback and the two offers I had received.
I am well satisfied, thank you.

Hi Jason

Our recent move was always going to be long and drawn out, but we believe that Luscombe Maye worked really hard at finding us the right buyer. They did not introduce any unsuitable buyers, and eventually came up with the right buyer and the right price. Their work did not end there as they continued to support us during the delays and queries that are sometimes inevitable. Their encouragement, communications and advice was much appreciated.
In our search for a new home and sale of the old one, we dealt with a number of estate agents.
I can honestly say that Luscombe Maye were head and shoulders above the rest, I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Dear all at Luscombe Maye

We have now been in our new home for a week now and are delighted with the house and the area. We would like to thank you for the service that you gave us as purchasers. Our original viewing with Joanna Churchill was made more complete because of her knowledge of the property and the local area. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for any of the staff at the Yealmpton office with plenty of time given to us by Denise on our 2nd viewing.
 Finally Jason took the time to call in on us after we had moved in to check that all was well and to welcome us to the area.

To all at Luscombe Maye

Just a line to thank you for the service I received from you as a purchaser; Despite having to change horses mid-race and what was an occasionally difficult process, I am now settling in and starting to relax. I was very grateful for the accessibility of your staff, notably Joanna,  and for the regular stream of information I received.

Dear Nadia, Diane, Hugh and the rest of the team

Thank you very much for your congratulations and for all your hard work in dealing with this rather protracted sale, not least due to having to manage we three as well!
It is a most satisfactory completion to letting our property go, which you have dealt with very sensitively, and for which we are very appreciative.

Dear Nadia, Diane and Hugh

Thank you for your congratulations and good wishes. It’s certainly been a long journey since our first attempt to sell the house a year or so back. Thank you for your patience and persistence in dealing the sale process – and indeed in dealing with us! It is rather sad to see the house finally go but it’s the right thing and now they can create a new family history there.
with regards,

Dear Nadia

Finally, I would like today what a pleasure it was to have you act as our Agents for this sale. The service that we received was exemplary and pro-active and I am sure that the outcome was in a very large degree the result of you and your team’s tireless efforts on our behalf.
Next time I have to sell a house I will certainly use Luscombe Maye again.
Best regards

Good Afternoon Diane, Nadia & Hugh

We just wanted to thank you all for your hard work and help in selling Rose Cottage for us, from finding a reliable buyer to quickly responding to any questions or queries raised. We would certainly use Luscombe Maye Modbury again in the future.
Best Wishes

Dear Sirs

I am writing to you with regards to the above named.
My wife and I had been looking for a property to purchase for well over a year and had carried out several hours of internet searches and several viewings of likely suitable properties without success.
In turn we identified yet another property through your agency and attended to view. Hugh arranged to meet us at the property and was accompanied by another member of staff.
Throughout we found Hugh impeccably polite and helpful but sadly the property we viewed was again not what we sought. Hugh probed our requirements further that day and matched us with what he assessed to be a property which would match our criteria. He then arranged to meet with us to view that property after his working hours and to our delight we found the property that we had been seeking for quite some time.
Over the past couple of years we were introduced to a number of estate agents and properties and can honestly say that on no previous occasion did the estate agent conduct themselves in such a professional manner as we found Hugh.
Indeed it was not until sometime later that we discovered that Hugh had only recently joined your firm and was in fact undergoing an early probationary period.
Both my wife and I would like to repeat our gratitude and admiration for Hugh whom, in our opinion, has proved to be a tremendous asset to your firm.
You have a great office at Modbury and we were kept informed and contacted throughout the exchange and completion making the move as comfortable as possible.
Please convey the contents of this letter to Hugh and the rest of your office staff and once again thank you to all of you.
Yours faithfully

Dear Luscombe Maye

I am writing to thank you for all your services in connection with the sale of the above property. We received excellent services in connection with this.
In particular I would like to thank Nadia Lefer for all her work. We had previously had our property with another estate agent and were not satisfied with their performance. We arranged to interview three other estate agents and had actually decided to go with one of the first two – but were so impressed with her personal enthusiasm and professionalism that we decided to change to your firm.
Nadia was professional and proactive throughout. Good quality details were produced and viewings arranged quickly. In particular she was actually on leave when one viewing was planned but she cancelled her leave to conduct the viewing herself as I was keen to have her personally involved. During this viewing she actually obtained an offer for the property and after brief negotiation (during which she gave good advice) a sale was agreed.
During the purchase of our new property a couple of snags arose. Once again she was very proactive and was always prepared to chase up other estate agents etc. to make sure the sale/ purchase went through.
This is easily the best service we have received from an estate agent and I have never written a letter of thanks like this before but it is well deserved.

Dear Nadia

From our first meeting with you, we felt thoroughly confident that you would guide us through a satisfactory and totally professional sale of our cottage.
You are a great team, and Hugh was especially helpful with viewings. Once a sale was agreed, Diane kept control – always one step ahead in anticipation of detailed requirements.
Thank you all, we shall without hesitation thoroughly recommend you.

Dear Ian

We would like to thank you for the help and assistance that you gave us with the sale of our holiday home.
As you know one problem we had was distance, therefore we couldnt be there all of the time, however you took control of the situation and arranged a number of viewings, which we felt was very important, and you managed to find a buyer.
You gave us help with every aspect of the sale, plus all of the questions that came up along the way, as you are aware we had the property for 25 years, and had much pleasure and enjoyment, but time had come for it to be sold, we really appreciate what you did.
We wish you well for the future.

Dear Antony

We would like to thank you and your staff very much indeed for achieving the sale of our property
Having purchased from you originally and let out through you successfully over the years thanks to the help and efficiency of Cathy and Andy, we felt it only right that we should let you offer our property for sale.
From that very moment you all sprung to action. Within days the property was on your website, beautifully advertised with some excellent photos and certainly displayed to its finest. Immediately there were viewings and despite being on holiday in Norway negotiations were carried out with the two interested parties swiftly and efficiently resulting in an offer well over the asking price. As you can imagine we were very impressed and certainly very pleased with the outcome.
Things proceeded along in their normal way and then all seemed to go very quiet for several weeks. Nerves set in, but once again Antony went into action and very swiftly any delays were sorted out and the sale was completed.
We certainly rate your office very highly and thank you all for your excellent service. It has been a pleasure dealing with you all and we wish you all the best for the future. You never know we might be back again one day!

Dear Antony

Our property had been on the market and struggling to sell.  We were impressed with Ian from Luscombe Maye when considering changing agent and appointed Luscombe Maye.  Their photos and particulars were frankly better than the previous agent’s.  After a number of viewings, we received two offers, and having accepted the second of these, we have recently successfully exchanged contracts thank you.  We were delighted with the serviced provided by Luscombe May and Ian in particular, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to future clients.

Dear Chris and Alex

Just a short note to thank you both very much indeed, for your help, guidance and assistance in the sale of [our property]. Living at a distance did not make things easy, but your input made things so smooth. I will always be indebted to Alex for helping me out with my flat battery at the very beginning.

Dear Piers, Lynette and the Totnes Team

Thank you so much for the brilliant achievement of my mum’s lovely house sale. We are so glad the new owner is pleased and will be very happy there too. Thank you for everything you have done, the support you have given us, being outstanding professionally, highly experienced and also fun! Thank you especially to Piers for seeing the aspects of mum’s house which would add interest and for his guidance. Mum is happy with her new life with us and sends her thanks too.
Best wishes and congratulations

Dear Piers and Lynette

Thank you both so much for all you have done and for such a quick and easy sale. Much Appreciated

Dear Piers

Thank you for your letter dated 21st May regarding the exchange of contracts on [our property] and for the copy of your account for the services carried out during our sale.
We have been very satisfied with the professional manner in which viewings and negotiations have been conducted. Your staff were always courteous and friendly when showing prospective buyers around our property and were knowledgeable on all aspects of the house selling process. The photographs of our property were taken with great care and attention to detail esuring the best aspects of [our property] were displayed. We would have no hesitation in recommending Luscombe Maye to your future clients.

We approached Luscombe Maye for help with our once-in-a-lifetime family relocation to Devon, so ours is a buyers perspective. From the beginning, Luscombe Maye listened closely to our requirements and rapidly organised viewings of an impressive range of properties to suit our needs, at our convenience. Within a few days, we had found the house of our dreams; the house we ultimately bought. Luscombe Maye were incredibly responsive and did everything to assist both us and the vendor throughout the conveyancing process, going above and beyond what one has come to expect of an estate agency. The service was at once gold-plated and bespoke; if selling houses is matching properties to people, then Luscombe Maye must be among the best in the business. Were we to sell a property, based on this buyers experience, the decision to market our property with Luscombe Maye is already made.

Thank you to everyone at Luscombe Maye, especially Jo, Fiona and Amanda, for selling what was not the easiest property. Your attention to detail and helpful advice has been most welcome. I hope that the new owners will be very happy and are able to bing the house up to its full potential.

Dear Nadia

Now that the dust has settled I wanted to write and let you know how pleased I have been with the way that you and your colleagues have handled this very difficult sale. If only all the other parties involved had been as professional as your office I am sure the sale would have gone through in half the time.
Special thanks go to Diane who kept us in touch with what was happening and who tried to keep me sane!
I would have no hesitation in recommending your office to others who wish to sell their properties.

Dear Roger

I would like to make you aware of the great level of service and helpfulness that we have recently received in our property search from Victoria.
She showed us a particular property twice in one day, once my wife and secondly myself as my wife was so excited about it. We did not end up putting an offer on this property, but she had found out lots of questions that my wife had asked, last viewing in her own time and simply how pleasant she was to deal with.
My wife and I would recommend anyone to deal with her.

Dear Roger and Victoria

Now the completion for [our property] has taken place, we would like to thank you for all the help, advice and guidance you gave us.
We also appreciate the varied and consistant advertising you gave the house which produced the desired result – a satisfactory sale.
We would be hapy to recommend, without hesitation, Luscombe Maye to anyone needing the services you provide.

Dear Antony

I would like to thank you and your colleagues for all your help and guidance in the sale of my our cottage. Having no experience in the selling of property we found your expertise invaluable. We always found everyone at Luscombe Maye very understanding, polite and helpful. I would recommend Luscombe Maye to my friends and if I ever need an estate agent again I would not hesitate in returning to yourselves.
Many thanks.

Dear Jo

At one stage I thought we would never get to the exchange of contracts stage, but you seemed to have provided the right stimulus just in time for us to complete before Christmas.
You certainly kept up the pressure when it was needed, and managed to clarify very confusing messages coming from our purchaser. You and your team did a very good job under sometime difficult conditions… keep up the good work!

Dear Antony

… within two weeks of the For Sale going up, we had received an offer of the full asking price. The sale proceeded smoothly, with no hitches, and contracts were exchanged after two months.  In this age of austerity, I find that to be a highly satisfactory result, and would have no hesitation in recommending Luscombe Maye to anyone considering selling their home.

Dear Rebecca

Now the sale of my late mother’s bungalow… is complete, I would like to say a big ‘Thank You’. Before we had a buyer, it was good to have the regular updates of viewings, on the Internet, press advertising from you and Andrea. You always kept me informed of any interest, viewings, or problems.
It was reassuring that you carried out accompanied viewings. This is not so with all estate agents!
In fact my elderly parents nearly decided not to move to Devon from Hertfordshire 11 years ago as they were fed up having to show people around their flat, as the agent of a well-known estate agents would just ring them and send people around!
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property in South Brent or the surrounding area.

Dear Piers

Thank you for selling my house so quickly and efficiently. I was so pleased with the photos and the presentation of the house.
I also found you most helpful throughout the speedy sale.

Dear Piers Whiting and Lynette Schofield

I would like to give you my thanks for taking on and selling my house. From the of my first contact with you to the final date of my residence is exactly TWO months. I think that is pretty impressive.
Although Piers would probably demurr.
I am glad I came to Luscombe Maye and from the first time we met I have been treated royally, and have had up to date information passed on, almost instantaneously, sometimes, via Email and by telephone. I wish every success in the future and I am glad to have met you both.
Thank you again.

Dear Stuart

We are writing this letter to thank you for the extremely good service we have received from Luscombe Maye in the selling of [our property].
Everyone in the office has been unfailingly helpful and polite and a pleasure to deal with throughout.
Moving house is well-known to be a stressful time and it was so nice to have received your unerring support throughout the process leading to final completion. In particular we would like to thank Diane for all the hours she spent chasing things on our behalf enabling us to meet the exchange date. We would like to wish you all the very best in the future.
