During the process of purchasing the property, many difficulties presented themselves, which were not expected at the outset. I would like to thank OJ for their support and diligence as without it I do not think we would have succeeded....

Nicholas always gave viewing feedback promptly and I feel I was kept informed at all times. In my opinion, the true value of a good sales negotiator is the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure the sale exchanges/completes, much of which the Seller is completely unaware of. I became increasingly aware of the amount of contact Nicholas had with my Buyer and how much of his time was spent liaising with them, essentially on my behalf, for which I was very grateful....

Colin at Oliver James has been extremely helpful and courteous throughout my house purchase. His professionalism and honesty gave me confidence throughout what was for me a stressful process. His local knowledge means that some remedial work that needed doing to the property is proceeding very well, and I am now happily living in my new home. I felt able to trust Colin, and I can't thank him enough for his advice....

Oliver James did an excellent job of selling our house and I would be happy to recommend them to my friends. Colin Steel photographed our house in the early afternoon and had it on the market and listed on rightmove by the end of the day. The photographs were excellent and the description of our house was well written. I was genuinely surprised by the number of viewings we had and the house sold within a few days. The staff at Oliver James were friendly, polite and efficient throughout the who...

Having successfully negotiated one of the trickiest property sales imaginable on our behalf, I can only say that Nicholas Lindsey (Oliver James, Abingdon) has proved to be determined and extremely hard working. He has understood our requirements, and those of the buyers, and has never been slow to pick up the phone to smooth the way for both parties. Full of insight, and plenty of hard graft, albeit at times sharing in our frustration. A skilled negotiator. We are delighted and very grateful for...

During the viewing George has been very professional,while balancing the right amount of friendliness. During the purchase he has been the perfect liaise with the other party, his interventions when requested have been so prompt and saved many days of waiting, he has also sourced many papers from the council, which was very much appreciated as the other party's solicitor were dragging their feet... Very grateful to have had this gentleman as my agent, great job indeed-many thanks!...

I asked Oliver James to market my property after disappointing results from two other local agents, who had been overly optimistic in their valuations. I found the more realistic approach of Oliver James refreshing, and the whole team was extremely professional. Quality of advertising materials was high, and they kept me well informed throughout about viewings and feedback....

After a poor experience with another estate agent, Oliver James restored our faith! Ian showed us a range of properties and got a feel for our likes and requirements. We ended up buying a property that we'd seen online and didn't think was for us, but on his recommendation we visited and it was perfect. Other staff in the office were polite and helpful and it was always easy and convenient to arrange visits....

Extremely professional in all their dealings while never forgetting the personal touch....

Our property was sold through the auction process, and as such the main stream agents weren't particularly interested as we had yet to sell. George however was happy to take our offer on a property seriously, and despite one or two hiccups, the sale went through smoothly and quickly. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Oliver James....

As a company we instructed 2 local agents to market a potentially tricky older style property close to the town centre. Oliver James quickly introduced a number of viewers and following a visit to their office which clearly demonstrated an excellent knowledge of both market conditions and local knowledge, was able to agree a sale very close to original expectations. The transaction was well progressed to exchange and contracts within a reasonable timescale....

Nicholas at Oliver James let and managed my property in a village near Abingdon very successfully for the last 2 years. I found the service to be thorough, efficient and professional. With sound knowledge of the market / area they negotiated a great deal for me and the tenants were looked after so well they asked to stay for another year! Communication is very important to me and Nicholas made sure he was always reachable. I would be happy to recommend Oliver James for lettings and sales....

After a bad experience with another local Estate Agent, we decided to re-launch the property and opted to go with Oliver James after researching other agencies in the locality. We are so glad that we did as we have to say that overall our experience was very good and were impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff involved who kept us completely up-to-date. The property sold much quicker than we ever anticipated....

When the final bill was received we thought it was high and that it was not value for money but saying that we did not envisage such a rapid sale. The property could have remained on the market unsold for a much longer period which would have justified the amount charged.
