After years of experience working in the Cambridgeshire property market we know what the good, the bad and the ugly side of Estate Agency and Property Management looks like.

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

Highly recommend Oliver James Properties. We sold a house in Brampton but we live in the USA (it had been a rental property). Oliver made sure distance was no obstical and more importantly he communicated with us every step of the way. He was always easy to get hold of and nothing was any trouble. Would not hesitate to use him again....

It is said moving house is the most stressful experience, not so with Oliver James, friendly and approachable, they made the process straightforward with constant professionalism. Wanting to move into a different County to be nearer to family was not going to be easy. From the first point of contact arranging a viewing Oliver was polite and helpful with all our needs.Even arranging a Sunday viewing for our visiting son and family was not too much trouble, he even apologised for being in shorts o...

We have very recently bought a House in the Village of Great Stukeley , through the Agents, Oliver James. The purchase went very smoothly from start to finish, and Oliver was helpful throughout, particularly acting as the Intermediary between the Seller and ourselves. If at any time he was not available, (* which was very rare ), his colleague James was more than happy to assist. We would strongly recommend this Company, either for buying or selling...

Following the death of our mother my sister and I approached a number of estate agents with a view to putting her house on the market. Although Oliver James was the smallest of the firms we contacted we were impressed with their attitude, their honest appraisal and their 'no pressure' approach. We felt they would handle the sale in a more personal way - and we were not disappointed. Living away from the area communication was vital and Oliver and James kept us fully up to date and responded pr...

We have just purchased our first property through Oliver James. From the first contact we had with the company it was very professional yet down to earth which is just what we were after. No typical salesman approach, pestering you day in day out like we've found with other Huntingdon estate agents. We mainly dealt with Oliver who came recommended to us by a number of people. He was a fantastic help giving us advice on buying our first property and arranging prompt viewings. After the sale was a...

But the day came, and the jobs went, and we found ourselves sorrowfully forced to leave behind our friends, neighbors, and our home as relocated back to the States. After six months of unsuccessful attempts with 2 previous Estate Agencies in selling our beautiful home we had run out of time. On the recommendation of family friends we contacted Oliver of Oliver...

As a landlord with a portfolio of properties, we deal with estate agents on a regular basis, and Oliver James have set a new standard. Friendly, efficient and with excellent communication. Never a problem to get them on the phone, as we needed to on many, many occasions as the completion date loomed. And Olly was fantastic in liaising between the vendor, their solicit...

Oliver James Property agents were very proactive in their approach to sell our property. The agent ( Olly) contacted me about selling my property. I found him polite and helpful and not pushy at all. He left me to think about what he said and i contacted him back as i was impressed at the research and time he took over finding out about my property. His fee was very competative. Once on the market he got potential buyers to view, updated us regularly ( as we didnt live in the area as we hav...
