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.

We would not hesitate to recommend both Nicholas and Oliver James as our neighbours also did to us after experiencing their service a year before we took the plunge. One very pleasing service they provide is to keep you constantly in the loop rather than being left wondering. Calls are returned promptly and other staff members are able to pick up a query as well....

We have had a very positive experience selling the property with Oliver James. They maintained good communication throughout and coordinated the sale from start to finish. Everyone in the office were very friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble. They supported our requirements and did not try to impress their own opinions upon us, fully understanding their brief....

Never the less we felt that Nicholas was always by our side throughout and more than happy to go the extra yard to keep the sale together and moving forwards.

We had been on the market with various other agents for nearly a year, unable to sell our not so easy to sell cottage. Within a month, OJ had sold it THREE times, two being pull outs, but the third one concluding in a successful sale! We found OJ to be honest, practical and extremely knowledgable in their field of expertise. George was a constant support from beginning to end, offering helpful solutions to all the various issues that arise in this rocky process. I felt him to be almost like dad ...

Nicholas and his team provided an excellent service during a very traumatic and protracted process due to a difficulty further down the chain. We had initially placed the property with Purple Bricks but the service from the beginning was non-existent so we decided to instruct Oliver James' to handle the sale and we firmly believe that if we had remained with an online agency the outcome would have been very different. Nicholas and his team have extensive local knowledge and were therefore able...

All staff were extremely professional and calm in the process of selling our house. A stressful experience was made bearable by their determined approach to capture the right buyer. The inevitable problems arising from a long chain were dealt with quickly and the communication between Colin, myself and other agents was clear and helpful.

George and the team at Oliver James (Witney) acted professionally and efficiently throughout the sale of my property. The house was listed in no time at all, EPC taken care of and all viewings accompanied. Offers put forward effectively and negotiations on my behalf secured the best price. I received regular feedback updating me on the progress of the sale through to completion. Many thanks. I would recommend George and his team without hesitation....

This is the first time that I have ever had any dealings with Oliver James and Nicholas Lindsay in particular. From the first time we met to the very end of the house sale, he was excellent. Through out the long drawn out attempts to sell the property, he came across to me as being very professional in every thing that he did and totally committed to selling the property for us. I would not hesitate to use Oliver James again in the future should the need arise. I have already recommended the...

As co-executor for my mother's will (deceased Jan 2015) and one of 4 siblings, between us we interviewed and shortlisted three agents in Abingdon. We rapidly reached the unanimous decision to run with Oliver James Ltd (Colin Steel) as the smaller and personal agency who clearly knew the local market, in preference to the two larger 'bells and whistles' agencies which we felt could lose interest if a quick sale did not provide their bonus. Colin Steel built our confidence, with a low key manner a...
