Our aim is to do things differently, not just for the sake of it, but because we strongly feel that there is a better way. We eliminate all of the worry regarding under-hand sales tactics, non-existent communication and hidden property management fees finding a new, more honest and collaborative way to work with our clients.

A highlight if this is our Property Journal technology. This simple online portal, available twenty four hours a day, allows Vendors to keep track of all viewings booked, feedback from those appointments, offers made as well as notes regarding our sales progression. In short our selling process is transparent!

Our business partnership is made up of two, pro-active, property professionals with a passion for delivering high levels of customer service and who are committed to making a genuine difference to people's lives.

Combining this enthusiasm and experience with the latest technology and innovative marketing techniques, as well as pro-active Estate Agency, we've found a system that really works.

After growing up, living and working in Cambridgeshire we strongly believe in supporting our local community which starts with using local, independent suppliers and businesses wherever we can and by situating our office in central Huntingdon. By buying, renting or selling your property through Oliver James you'll be helping us to support our local businesses and keep our community buzzing which, in the long run, benefits us all.
