"From start to finish the help, contact, support and friendliness of all staff made the whole process run very smoothly and ‘lightened my load’. I never felt alone and thank everyone for that. The contact from all staff is commendable. Being punctual for all viewings was impressive and the guidance through the whole selling process was outstanding.

Choosing Oakleys was the best decision I made."
Wendy Brookes , January 2013
Oakleys’ marketing strategy was an instant ‘breath of fresh air’ … from the very start Oakleys’ approach seemed more personal and measured to our particular situation. The house had been on the market in Berkhamsted for approximately 10 months, lots of viewings but no offers with three previous local agents. Oakleys offered two options that their competitors did not: a strategy bespoke to our situation and a much more personal and supportive approach; particularly when things got sticky due to chain issues in the final strait. You really got the feeling that all members of the team, Kathryn, Becky and Michele especially, were all pulling for you. The sale finally went to plan exactly how promised. Thank you so much!! "
Jan Wieckowicz , January 2013
"Oakleys are efficient and always do what they say they will; they make clients feel special and are very, very helpful. Top class! The best agent ever we’ve ever used. "
Ursula Bennett, January 2013
"The whole selling experience was handled professionally and with a high standard of customer care. We had no concerns and no complaints about the service Oakleys provided. The Oakleys team were all fantastic. They were always positive but never pushy (like a lot of other agents we were dealing with) their support was extremely helpful to our family. Kathryn was especially kind on several occasions when things got a bit stressful and emotional! To summarise – an excellent agency! Compared to other agencies they go above and beyond to be helpful and keep you informed through the whole process. We were very impressed by the whole team and are recommending them to everyone we know.
Joanna Wright, December 2012
"Oakleys were very supportive and proactive; it is difficult to balance being both the agent to the client and ‘marriage-broker’ to prospective purchasers but Oakleys managed that well. In summary Oakleys are very professional and focused on achieving good results for both clients and prospective purchasers. "
Jim Hepburn , November 2012.
"Oakleys' staff were genuinely very friendly. I was kept informed at all times regarding my house before, during and after the sale. You were all very approachable - everybody I spoke to always seemed very helpful and genuinely interested in selling my house; I had every faith in you doing so and you did. I just wished I'd used you sooner. Before using Oakleys I had a few friends that had recommended them to me. I cannot fault the service that I received. You made me feel that I could talk to anyone of you at the office. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others. I don't think you could improve on the service that you provide and I'd like to say a big thank you for everything.
Julie Darby, November 2012

There were times when our sale and purchase was very difficult and it was good to know that Becky in particular listened to the problems and sorted them out. Becky even sent me flowers when I was particularly low!! Oakleys offer a professional, caring and efficient service from start to finish. The service could not have been improved. When things went wrong they were solved as soon as possible.
Claire Dukes, September 2012

Marcus Bennett, August 2012

Each potential buyer was debriefed and handled well. Our expectations were made more realistic (diplomatically thanks to Becky!) Oakleys were efficient, supportive and friendly throughout the sale. We feel that the whole experience was handled well.
Kathy Taylor, July 2012
"Oakleys' staff are extremely competent, very pleasant and respond to questions very quickly. Responding to worried customers questions is very important. The Oakleys experience was very pleasant.

I almost wish I had another house to sell!"
Grace Duckworth, May 2012

Maggi Merritt, May 2012

Lisa Moore, May 2012
"Oakleys are the best agents I've dealt with - calm , approachable, professional and proactive. Clearly very aware of the current market locally. Communicated very clearly about any changes we needed to achieve the sale. Very supportive throughout the negotiation and exchange process. Daily updates on progress and very good at calmly pushing all sides. made sale itself remarkably stress free.
Emily Caporn, April 2012
"I have little experience of house sales and I thought this particular sale was long and arduous. The difficulties seemed to be handled with patience and skill and assurance that we would gwt there somehow together. Becky gave an assurance of professional calm,Michele was always cheerful and friendly; when the going got tough Michael went into overdrive. I felt the Oakleys team were very much on my side right through a difficult period of time - dogged determination saw it through with infinite patience and effort."
Brian Moss, April 2012
"Becky came prepared for the appraisal with documents relating to similar properties to enable her to make an informed price decision rather than looking at previous sales in the road - I thought this was a good approach. From day one I thought the team were very professional and confident. They offered suggestions on preparing the house for sale and kept me up to date following each viewing. when the offer came in the negotiator told me they would negotiate further - they did, and it covered your fee so I was very happy.
Ian Harris, March 2012

Oakleys Purchaser - name withheld, November 2011
The most memorable experience was the buyers emailing you two days prior to exchange of contracts saying they were pulling out of the sale. However awful it was at the time for all concerned, we felt you dealt with that situation very professionally and coolly in the circumstances. Thankfully the sale was salvaged because of your handling of things we felt. A big thanks to Becky who came to the house to explain things which we felt was so kind and could not have been easy. All of your staff were very polite, friendly and easy to talk to and very professional which we liked. We were given honest advice - even when we didn't want to hear it perhaps! Oakleys were proactive in terms of monitoring regular viewings and when we met to discuss a price reduction we felt our concerns re price were listened to. A professional friendly service and Michael even recommended the removal company we used."
Richard Batten & Tracy Pike, November 2011

P C Weston, October 2011
Oakleys staff are always prompt and friendly. Professional yet personable. Efficient but good humoured. Oakleys are happy to admit an hic-ups, though there were very few. It seems as though you have good systems which allow anyone to know what's happening at any point and no need to chase. To have regular updates was to have peace of mind that we were not forgotten. I will almost miss the calls - offset by the relief of a completed sale.Hurrah! Becky is always cheerful, efficient, effective and wise; but all the team are friendly, reliable, polite and well informed."

A R Marlin, September 2011
"Oakleys were proactive on both sides of our sale, both keeping the pressure on the buyer whilst keeping us in the loop without being prompted. Oakleys were professional, competitive and easy to deal with throughout the sale of our property. We were pleased with the service they provided and would recommend to others."
Stuart Jeffrey, August 2011
Oakleys provided me with confidence in their ability to get the best price for my house and confidence they would secure buyers with true buying capability. There was an honest and straightforward approach from Michael giving peace of mind that Oakleys would find the best solution for me as a seller.

Oakleys provided regular discussions regarding marketing and pricing structure and were always keeping me informed."
Vikki Welling, August 2011
"The staff at Oakleys were helpful, supportive and friendly. There was ongoing support and sensitivity offered by Becky who was with us all the way to the end of a long road to ownership.
Francesca Olmi, August 2011
Unfortunately it was the difficulties with our own buyers which delayed our purchase with Oakleys. This was an extremely stressful process for us but Oakleys were excellent at helping us through this and keeping an open dialogue with us and the vendor through out. The multiple means of communicating were very flexible eg. text, email, phone. great for some one with a busy lifestyle. I wish Oakleys were the agents selling my house during our move rather than those I had instructed."
Rob Barnes, July 2011
Oakleys are nice people to deal with; I was very happy with Oakleys service and they were professional in every way. Thank you."
Jane Pearcy, July 2011
A very helpful service throughout; both before our offer but also ongoing throughout the buying process and beyond! Oakleys were very supportive/proactive - quite unlike 'normal' estate agents. Great experience."
Kate Badham, June 2011
We had a good number viewings during what seemed to be a slow down in the housing market, so I feel Oakleys were proactive in ensuring the viewings were consistent. The communication and support from the whole team was good. The team at Oakleys provided us with a good level of service pre and post sale; there was always a friendly reception and they were honest about market prices and trends. After the sale had been agreed Becky provided great communications with all parties involved to ensure the sale completed quickly and without issue."
Jane Saunders, June 2011
"I was delighted with the way the whole process was conducted. Very efficient, honest and sensitive. Just excellent all round service. Thank you."

Nicola Eames, May 2011
Oakleys have friendly, helpful and communicative staff; Stress free - relatively! Oakleys kept us more up to date with progress through out than the solicitors. A very positive experience."

Julia & Robert Carter, May 2011
"Very professional - Oakleys are top of my list of agents to go to if/when we come to sell our house. There was always someone at the end of the phone and you turned up at the right house at the right time - not something your competitors could manage! Keep doing the work you're doing."
Michael & Maria Jennings, April 2011
"A friendly and willing service by all team members we encountered - either in person or on the phone. Mostly very good communication. this was especially important for us given that we were in Germany throughout the process. Although clearly aware that you were employed by the vendor - we did feel that you took our situation on board and supported us through out the process; again communication was the key."
Brigitta Case, April 2011
"Oakleys always kept me informed with what was going on with the sale of my home; very helpful staff and always happy to give me the answers I needed; they always treated me like a customer and not just interested in the sale of my home.

Keep doing what you're doing as I was pleased with how you dealt with me."

"Great patience and skills in negotiation during a very stressful period. Oakleys are keen, active, friendly, professional and hardworking.
Martyn Brown, February 2011
"We felt Oakleys worked really hard at getting the viewings and pushing for a sale. The photos of the house looked great and you worked well around the fact we had small children whose routine we didn't want to disrupt. You also worked hard after the offer was accepted to push the salethrough. We thought you were all supportive and proactive during the process - which is stressful - and aslo helped with our purchase. Overall very happy.

Christopher Talbot - Ponsonby, October 2010
"As was highlighted later on in the process we were very lucky we made the right choice with our estate agents. You proved leagues ahead of the others we met through our purchase chain!

Faye Morley - Medlar, September 2010
"The initial meeting with Michael at home was reassuring and he did a good job in making us feel that we were in the hands of an expert without being in any way pushy. The number of viewings organised was impressive and feedback was useful. Totally supportive, we felt you were working with and for us. In summary - professional, confident , friendly, supportive, not pushy, good team work.
George Kountourou, September 2010
"After the first time buyer pulled out the team really kept up the momentum and found a new buyer straight away. Honest, professional advice, not just telling you what you want to hear. Incredibly pro active. No need to ever enquire as to progress of the sale. All staff thoroughly pleasant to speak to and very reliable with information. By far the most professional friendly and expert of all the Berkhamsted estate agents I have used. Not the first time I have used Oakleys and I'm sure it won't be the last."
Lloyd Smith, September 2010

John and Belinda McGinley, July 2010
Fantastic! We had our property on the market with another Berkhamsted agent and were very disappointed - we found them to be reactive, took their foot of the pedal once the sale was agreed and almost on the buyer's side. Oakleys were the opposite - attentive, proactive, supportive yet realistic. Becky was a pleasure to deal with - a real contrast to the previous agency - it restored my faith in estate agencies!! "

Roisin was particularly helpful and supportive during the offer process stage of our purchase. Based on the excellent and efficient service we received in handling the sale of our property I feel the value for money was both competitive and fair. We were very satisfied with the service received and would not hesitate to recommend Oakleys in the future.
Ellen Bigmore, October 2007
"Looked at six agents in Berkhamsted and liked 'Offers In Excess Of' approach. Was particularly impressed by Roisin and the rest of your sales team. She was professional and straightforward at all times. Quick to resolve problems and had excellent knowledge of others in the chain. I cannot speak more highly of her. I had less to do with Alex, Dominic and Sherry but all were excellent also.
David Fettes, October 2007
"Very positive - one of the most courteous, friendly and responsive agents I have ever dealt with.
Donald Greig, September 2007

Lorna Roberson, September 2007
"Very good, proactive and efficient. A very good experience overall. If we go to market we would almost certainly instruct you.
Genny Snowdon, September 2007
"Apart from initial valuation, a faultless service. Once we had signed with Oakleys, we could stop worrying as we were kept up to date constantly and never had to chase after them. Highly professional and helpful staff. We would recommend Oakleys over any other Estate Agent. Thank you for everything.
Lloyd & Caroline Smith, September 2007
"Very helpful, friendly staff. Couldn't have asked for more viewers on the house. Staff all very efficient and easy to deal with.
Julie Shevlane, September 2007
"Even if we didn't know you personally I have to say that all the updates and contact we received from you was very professional and we did say this to our friends, colleagues and neighbours at the time."
Val & Colin Sands, August 2007
"Very positive sales drive!! We will use Oakleys when/if we move again - always positive with an aggressive selling technique!
G Rutherford, August 2007
"The staff at Oakleys should be highly commended. Whenever we called we felt like the only people being dealt with. Everyone was extremely helpful, polite and would do everything possible to ease some very tense and stressful times. We cannot fault our experience and were delighted with the service.
Lucinda Hyde-McCready, July 2007
"Excellent - the whole process of buying Cedar Road was professionally handled. Any queries were responded to very quickly. We were very satisfied with the service offered. The Champagne was lovely thank you very much!
Clair Cobb, July 2007
"Very helpful company to do business with. Although I was unaware I personally knew Sherry at the time, she came across very well and portrayed a professional attitude when dealing in my sale. We had many laughs and it made dealing with Oakleys more enjoyable. She is an asset to your company.
Nick & Denise Hancock, July 2007
"Supportive and helpful, during what was at times a difficult and complicated purchase. Despite the fact that the vendor was actually your paying client, I received very balanced and objective assistance throughout.
Josephine Curneen, July 2007
"We think you all deliver a high level of honest service - well done! When a problem arose between exchange of contracts and completion, Michael was able to communicate between vendors/purchasers, professionally, efficiently and courteously. A big thank you to Michael and all of his team.
D & J Odedra, July 2007
"I was most impressed by the service provided by Oakleys. Fabulous! Please give our special thanks in particular to Dominic, Alex and Roisin who were very good with all our telephone queries and requests
Claire Holford, June 2007
"Friendly and helpful, including contacting previous owners in Australia to check on a couple of things before we moved in - very pleased with the service received.
Vanessa Grey, June 2007
"In Summer 2003 we had a disappointing experience with Oakleys (a new buyer was introduced to the vendor after our offer was accepted). In Autumn 2006 we were let down by another agent and having met Dominic when he valued our house, we went to him for help. The 'new' Oakleys team were fantastic - professional, approachable, open and not at all pushy. It was through our trust in them that we went into rented accommodation for three months. We have already recommended Oakleys to friends and will not be using another estate agent again!
J & C Miller, June 2007
"Oakleys have a healthy balance of honesty, integrity, customer care, written updates, information and progress reports. Oakleys are no differently priced from their competitors but for the money Oakleys provide the attention and customer care which puts them above others which gives them the competitive edge and helps ease the process.
Patrick Dolan, June 2007
"Helpful, reassuring and friendly
K Tovey, June 2007
"very friendly, totally frank, keeping us adequately briefed...would unreservedly recommend Oakleys Berkhamsted.
J Roger Duffell, May 2007
"Pricing strategy worked well in getting interested parties to view and did in one go. Price achieved was good and sale very quick. Oakleys are very professional and we were pleased with the fact that you were prepared to do some additional activities. ie Oliver taking meter readings. Sales progression handled very well - I do not envy the job!
Dave Todd, May 2007
"You would be my first choice if I chose to sell and move on. The service that was provided to ensure communication channels stayed open between vendor and buyer was most unexpected but most welcome - excellent - thank you
Evelyn Dare, May 2007
"Great - keep up the good work!
M Hicks, May 2007
"Very friendly team. Messages were passed on. There was always someone to talk to without feeling urgency. Very professional. Excellent advice and help from Debra. Thank you.
Laurent Menou, May 2007
"Fabulous, friendly, helpful and professional. From my experience with Oakleys Estate Agents I would in future have no hesitation in recommending friends and family to use your services.
Ayton Markwell, May 2007
"Comprehensive and professional service. I thought Roisin was objective in her advice and Zoe was good on viewings. My experience of the other Estate Agent firm was mediocre in comparison.
David Meathrel, April 2007
"Our experience of using Oakleys was very good as our property was sold subject to contract in 24 hours. Value for money we feel was very good.
Alan Jordan, April 2007
"Efficient, good friendly service - always on hand. Very pleased with the care and service we received - would recommend to everyone and anyone!

Graham Kendall, April 2007

Debby Wood, April 2007
"Professional and friendly - We have used Oakleys before and on both occasions we have found them to be reliable, honest and easy to do business with. The price achieved exceeded our expectations - excellent value for money!
David Rutherford, March 2007
"Have used Oakleys previously to purchase property and was very happy with service. Knowledge of market prices for similar properties was far superior than other agents. You had to work hard and were also let down by buyers so had to do twice the work. All members of the team were friendly, helpful and professional at all times. Each stage of the sale went well (if one a little slowly)and we felt well informed at all times. Great service and professional staff. Would use again!
Annelise Dohr, March 2007
"Friendly, helpful staff who seemed committed to helping us move. Honest but not pushy...we've recommended you to friends moving.
Catriona Hearth, March 2007
I would definitely recommend Oakleys and indeed I have.... Our main contact was Debra who we couldn't fault. She was friendly, efficient and always got back to us with whatever query we had. Jamie and I have had quite negative experiences in the past with estate agents but are pleased to say that this was not the case with Oakleys.
Donna Morrison, March 2007
"Staff friendly and professional, nothing too much trouble. I trusted Oakleys and feel comfortable recommending them to others, as I know they wouldn't let me down. They operate an honest business and look after their client's best interests. Oakleys earned every penny - Michael and his team have been fantastic and helped 'over and above' what was required. Its a very stressful time and they helped me get through it.
Eileen Johnston, March 2007
"After twenty-six months and three separate estate agents in Berkhamsted, we made no progress in selling our house. With hindsight we wish we had made Oakleys our first choice. Oakleys distinguished themselves as outstanding estate agents. The team's pro-active approach succeeded in taking the stress out of having our property on the market. Pricing, marketing, viewers feedback, acting in our interest at all times and providing after sales care, set Oakleys apart from the rest.
Dr S. & Mr R. & Szcetnikowicz, March 2007
"Effective communication and liasing with vendors - positive!
Mr C D Witt, March 2007

Mr & Mrs Willams, February 2007
"Everyone I spoke to (and I did speak to everyone!) was friendly and happy to help. I genuinely felt that there was shared joy - and no doubt relief - when we exchanged!
Megan Reitz, February 2007
"Professional customer-oriented approach. In control even after the sale, still impressing by following through and ensuring all loose ends were tied up. Overall, very customer service oriented.
Richard Hay, February 2007
"Helpful in all aspects of the sale. Courteous and patient stafff. I felt that all were friends and keen to conclude the sale satisfactorily.
Mrs V Hoare, February 2007
"I was impressed by the additional services offered.
Nigel Millwood, February 2007
"All staff were very professional. Felt that they were interested in our property and keen to get a sale for us. We would certainly use Oakleys again if we need to market our next property.
AJ & BC Edwards, February 2007
A professional yet friendly team. The comunication was good and so the process was pretty seemless."
Lisa Moore, February 2007
"You were reliable, friendly, efficient and true to your word! I think you're always trying to improve on your service, and it shows. Thank you to everyone for the 'Oakleys Experience'...you made our move so much easier."
Lizzie Chadwick, January 2007
"I would highly recommend using Oakleys. I was very satisfied with the level of communication I received, and I was very satisfied with the honesty and integrity displayed. I was constantly informed of the progress of each viewing which I felt was very useful and reassuring. My experience of Oakleys is a professional outfit with friendly, courteous staff. Throughout the sale I have been regularly informed of progress and updated when things needed to be actioned. Keep up the good work!
Nick Hancock, December 2006
"Your excellent service dealt with all my sale matters very well - particularly the 'chasing up'. There were about 6 interested buyers - even after a few days. I liked the marketing methods using 'Offers In Excess Of' pricing, I liked the add on services (the House Doctor and floor plans) and I was impressed with the photography and sales particulars.
Colin Hextall, December 2006
"Oakleys strategies maximised the price obtained for the property and reduced greatly the time it took to find a suitable buyer.
Chris Fernante di Ruffaus, November 2006
"Regarding the home doctor recommendations, number of viewings, feedback information, general telephone and personal contact with your staff, we must record that you have surpassed our expectations. The quality of professional standards exhibited has considerably exceeded those of estate agents with whom we have previously dealt with?.we are pleased with the way things have moved along so far.
Dr S. & Mr R. Szcetnikowicz, November 2006
"During the difficult times when the chain was stalling Oakleys worked very hard for us. Thank you.
Jack and Barbara Cutler, November 2006

Simon Kaye, November 2006

David Spowart, September 2006
"The sale of my property went very smoothly. The staff were friendly, honest and helpful. I would recommend Oakleys to my friends."
Gail Valentine, September 2006
"Oakleys were very proactive with marketing and arranging viewings. The accompanied viewings worked well and gave a good, professional image. The staff were knowledgeable about the local market, with a good database of clients?We found our purchase much harder than our sale!"
Lesley Harpley, September 2006
"Overall a very professional and slick sales process with knowledgeable staff at all levels from the initial valuation to chasing the sale through. Whilst one never likes to pay fees, these were well deserved and offered value for money. A great experience."
Jeremy Burditt, September 2006
"A well trained and professional service, with support and encouragement offered by staff at all times. Thank you to your staff and good luck to your company!"

Sarah Hawkswood, September 2006
"My experience has been 100% positive. Oakleys have proved to be honest, reliable and the team ensured a stress-free sale. I was particularly impressed with their support up to my exchange ? the chain was long and Oakleys provided professional after-sales liaison. They are a dedicated and enthusiastic team of people!"
Cath Hurling, September 2006
"Unbelievable marketing. Feedback without even having to ask! Members of staff always available to talk, or called me back within a short period of time ? I never had to chase."
Sarah Jones, September 2006
"Thank you for dealing with the various issues for us and running around on our behalf?Please thank the team for all they have done for us. We appreciate Oakleys were working with our best interests at heart at all times. We always felt confident that the team were doing their best for us.
