Book a Property Valuation

We’ve had the pleasure of helping lots of people find their perfect property. Here’s what some of our previous clients have to say about working with us:

Myself and my partner bought our first house using Forum and they made the process so much easier and relaxing! Martin helped us throughout the whole process, whether that was chasing up the solicitors or communicating with the vendors when we had questions - he made the experience a lot less daunting. Upon completion, we received a lovely gift box from the team which was a lovely touch. Couldn’t recommend Martin and Forum enough!!

Miss L - Sales Buyer

I would highly recommend Forum Sales & Lettings. The service was good excellent from beginning to end . They went above any beyond to do anything they could to ensure that my sale & purchase went smoothly.
Martin is an asset to the company. Moving house is a very stressful business and having him on our side was very reassuring, knowing that he had everything under control.

Miss T - Sales Client

Forum Sales and Lettings couldn’t have done a better job with helping us purchase our house. Martin’s communication was second to none, always on hand for any of our questions or queries! We couldn’t recommend Martin enough! Thank you Forum Sales and Lettings!

Miss R - Sales Buyer Review

Forum Sales & Lettings have provided us a consistent and outstanding service over the many years we have worked with them. They have made being a landlord a trouble-free and enjoyable experience. They also we excellent agents when we finally sold our flat managed by them. They are responsive, forward thinking, courteous and always professional. We recommend them!

Mr C - Sales Client

Ashley was extremely professional helping me to understand the local market for rental and sales as an investor. He went above and beyond to provide me with the information I needed to make informed decisions about investing in the local area. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Mr B - Buy To Let Investor

Our thanks to Martin who did a great job in getting what proved to be a difficult transaction through He persistently responded when required and was instrumental in getting our purchase completed.

Mrs L - Sales Client Buyer

Excellent service, when buying a property through this agent. Would highly recommend.

Mrs P - Sales Client Buyer

Martin was fantastic from start to finish with the sale of our flat. He kept us informed at every stage and provided advice when needed. An all-round excellent service and we would not hesitate to recommend. Many thanks to Martin and the team!

Mrs K - Sales Vendor

Forum have let my flat twice in the last couple of years and I've found them to be very supportive and approachable throughout the process. When my first tenant moved on recently, they found a new tenant very quickly and there was no break in my rental income. I live 150 miles away from my flat and it's very reassuring to know that they are there if I need them. Highly recommended!

Mr W - Lettings Client

I was completely new to letting and visited several letting agents in our area.  The one I expected to go with, who had been recommended, didn’t sit well with me at all, being quite aloof with an expectation that I should know the process.  Malcolm from Forum Lettings visited and explained thoroughly what would happen.  I found him to be very approachable which is important to me. 
I have dealt with Malcolm and Lynsey and both have been extremely helpful, always responding quickly to my queries – of which there are many!  They kept me informed with all I
needed to do which made it easy and put my mind at rest. 
The first time it took a while to secure tenants, maybe because it was around Christmas.  However, when they did, they secured the most amazing tenants.  I’m confident that will be the case this time too. 
Recently, I have been dealing with Malcolm.  He worked very quickly to get tenants into my property and is honest about what is realistic.  He has been exceptionally helpful with a particular issue I had, writing a series of emails to make sure I understood and to keep me updated. 
I would absolutely recommend Forum Lettings to anyone letting out a property in our area. 

Mrs E - Lettings Client

We have bought 2 properties through Forum during a 12 month period August 20 to August 21.
To say we are pleased with the service we have received is an under statement. Martin and Ashley have been superb. Nothing too much trouble for either of them THANK YOU
We can certainly recommend them.

Mrs K - Sales Client Buyer

Forum Sales and Lettings used creative marketing and excellent customer service to sell my flat. It had been on the market with another agent for months until I switched to Forum and they came in like a breath of fresh air to sell it almost immediately.

Mrs R - Sales Vendor

We employed Forum Sales & Lettings to sell my parents house as they wished to downsize and relocate to Blandford forum. Our experience with them can only be described as outstanding ! Nothing was too much trouble and Martin and Ashley made a very stressful process as easy as possible for my elderly parents. We really can't thank them enough.

Mr C - Sales Vendor

We had a particularly 'trying' purchase and the team at Forum sales were always hugely helpful and endlessly patient. They did everything possible to ensure the sale of my flat and onward purchase progressed and they had great links with our local solicitors. This is the second time I have used the services of Forum sales and I would highly recommend them.

Miss S - Sales Vendor

Forum Sales & Lettings have managed my property since 2008.

Each tenant they found for me was always a good one. They used their experience to find the right tenant to suit and every time they delivered. If ever there was an issue with the property, they were straight on to it. They always checked with me first, but most of the time I used a tradesmen they recommended.

I have now just sold my property via their sales department and the service I received was second to none.

I would highly recommend Forum Sales & Lettings to anyone, whether is be letting or selling their property.

Thank you to everyone at Forum Sales & Lettings and I wish you all the best for the future.

Mr B - Sales & Lettings Client

The service we received was excellent. Ashley and the team really delivered and found us excellent tenants

Mr L - Lettings Client

Ashley Babbs was first class. Friendly and gave us good advice very professional I would use then again if I was to buy or sell again

Mr J - Sales Buyer Review

Everyone in the team at Forum Sales & Lettings were really lovely and helpful with the sale of our property.

We’d previously gone with a competitor of theirs who never got back to us and didn’t get us any viewings in the 2 weeks we were with them, and we found them rather rude.
Within 2 days of being with Forum they’d already booked 3 viewings in for that week and couldn’t be more friendly and responsive.

Martin was our main contact there and he went above and beyond to help us out and answer any queries we had. He even came to do viewings on his days off, he’s that committed! We really cannot fault Forum Sales & Lettings and will recommend them to all friends and family.

A big thank you to Martin and the team at Forum!

Mrs J - Sales Vendor

Professional service from Martin and Ashley. Use an eye catching old style black and white picture of property on right move etc to make it stand out. Without giving to much away nice touch from the company to seller at completion.

Mr R - Sales Vendor

Having recently Let our property through Forum Sales & Lettings we cannot thank them enough. We dealt with Lynsey throughout the process and she was superb at answering our many questions and keeping us up to date at all times. Thank you once again, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Mr N - Landlord

We bought a house marketed through Forum. From our first appointment right through to completion and picking up the keys, Martin and his team were amazing. We needed tradesmen to look at a number of issues and Forum were very supportive and accommodating. Communications were fantastic and always available on the phone.

Our purchase was during Covid lockdown but Forum made the whole process smooth whilst remaining covid safe. Awesome

Mr W - Sales Buyer Review

Thank you Lynsey for your letting support – we really value your wealth of knowledge, expertise and your prompt and professional 'can do' approach.

Mrs H - Lettings Client

Martin and Ashley at forum sales were a great help through-out the process of me purchasing my first house - a 2 bed semi-detached house.

The first instance was the viewing and Martin was very honest about what he knew about the house and the owners. He took us throughout the whole property and was very informative.

When I expressed wanting to purchase he personally called me later on the same day out of office hours to ensure I knew that my offer had been accepted. This was something I greatly appreciated as I was still nervous about other potential customers.

During the next stages he kept communicating and ensured to respond timely to any issues I encountered after the survey was completed. They were quick to investigate and come up with a solution to the issues. I was overall happy with the way things turned out.

When it came to exchange and completion I was able to get the dates I needed and was provided with some nice treats when I collected the keys, a lovely gesture by them to congratulate me. They also provided plenty of contact numbers for contractors they recommended and also arranged for quotes for some of the work required.

Overall I am very pleased with the work they put in. I mostly spoke to Martin in office, on email and over the phone and he was always very friendly and helpful. Thanks so much!

Mr L - Sales Buyer Review

I sold my house with Forum Sales & Lettings and had a truly positive experience. Their communication was excellent (dealt mainly with Martin). He was very pro-active chasing buyers and solicitors. I would definitely recommend them. Thank you.

Mrs E - Sales Client

Thank you so much to Ashley and Martin for all their time. Very professional and would highly recommend. Our house previously was on for sale with another estate agents for months and months with nothing, we then changed over to Forum and within 6 days the house had sold. Very professional and amazing service.

Thank you again.

Miss L - Sales Client

Have just sold our property with Forum. Predominantly Martin dealt with the sale, and Ashley a little. It's been a long winded challenging sale, through no fault of theirs.
Martin was a great communicator, and kept us in the loop, even if there was no news. He shared our frustration at times, and worked hard to try and progress things as much as he could.
Thanks Martin!

Mrs S - Sales Client

Excellent, very professional and friendly service. Martin and Ashley were very efficient and kept me
updated throughout the process. I would highly recommend them.

Ms W - Sales Review

Ashley, Martin and the team have worked tirelessly to assist us in selling 2 properties, having let one of them for us for many years. As we are not local ourselves, they have assisted in every way possible and are pleasant to deal with and professional. Well done and keep up the good work

Mr S - Sales & Lettings Client

I dealt mainly with Martin. They have been very accommodating throughout the process - as my husband and I visited the property often (it was empty) to measure up and get builders quotes. Always easy to get hold of. Towards end of the purchasing process Forum helped loads to get things moving with the vendor (the property was in probate) - things that would have taken considerably longer without their help. On day of exchange - Martin even popped up to the cottage to pop the heating on in readiness for our arrival.

Mrs N - Sales Client

I have dealt with Forum Sales and Lettings before both for a property purchase and for a property sale and was very impressed with the service. I have now moved my six rental properties to them for them to manage, and again, very professional, friendly and competent service so far. I would recommend.
