Living in the local area Nicholas and team have extensive local knowledge to help buyers with their choice of Home and Location.

The office in Abingdon was opened in 2006 to complement the existing network of Oliver James offices, concentrating on servicing the riverside town of Abingdon and the general South Oxfordshire area. Our principle aim is to offer a mature and knowledgeable service, we are all homeowners so we can appreciate the stresses that come with buying and selling residential property.

Each property and every client's situation is different and therefore we look to approach all property sales on an individual basis and look after the client from the initial marketing stage through to completion, a complete property service.
