I called 5 estate agents and Charlotte Wilkinson at Oakfield stood out from the rest. From the initial phone call I had an inkling I would be using Oakfield. The day the estate agents came round, she was the only one who took a floor plan and did a virtual viewing video: 2 hours later she called me back with the perfect tenants and they signed the same day. Less than 3 weeks from initial phone call to date tenants moved in. I am a Londoner and she works to High pace London standards. Always at the end of the phone and what’s app, knows her stuff, articulate and very professional. I am glad I am working with Oakfield and Charlotte Wilkinson

Alex at Oakfield is absolutely brilliant! After some experiences last year with other agencies, we were not so keen to go ahead renting through an agent. But Alex changed the entire perspective so we are now very happy that we moved forward our application. Thank you Alex! Keep the bar up!

Lucy White – today I moved into my first flat. I have never rented before and had so many questions and Lucy was absolutely amazing! She helped me from complete start with finding a property all up to handing me my keys! I have never received such amazing customer service and would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to rent! I honestly can’t thank her and the Oakfield staff enough.

Originally Oakfield were my second choice of renting agents but after several weeks wasted with another I asked Oakfield to join and the highly efficient Alex took charge. He was not only very efficient, but charming, reliable and always helpful, keeping me abreast of just what was going on. In no time he found my tenants. I highly recommend the Oakfield team and would make them my first choice without doubt.

Mary Durdu

I couldn’t find a property with any agents before i phoned Oakfield and dealt with Josh. He found me a property that was exactly what i wanted and managed to move me in before i started my new job. Brilliant and effective service.

Andrea V E

Sam in particular is charming and knows property well. As opposed to most awful real estate agents within this area I recommend this company.

Peter Aubrey

Danielle is efficient, professional and a good communicator. She has managed my property for the last five years and guided my tenants and myself through the various procedures and monitored the state of my property on a regular basis. The best letting agent I have had acting for me.

Jack Masterman

Service provided was very professional and responsive. I needed a flat ASAP and Ronnie went out of his way to help, incl. showing me a flat out of work hours on a Sunday. Would highly recommend.

Richard Cornelius

Lucy was very quick and efficient. She rung me in the Thursday and by the Wednesday we had the keys. This was so quick if it wasn’t for the weekend it most prob been fine quicker. Highly recommend Oakfield and Lucy as your agent Thank you Lucy .

Josephine Chapman

My husband and I had help from Casey Freeman based at the St Leonards branch we have to say she was amazing help.I would recommend Casey to anyone looking for a property she gave 110% Thank you for all your help.

Joanna Felton

Over the past 11 years, Danielle and Georgia have been both professional and supportive. They have advised me on a number of occasions on my property portfolio and I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend them. The properties I let are in their safe hands and they will always go beyond the call of duty to help.

Our Selling Guide

Marketing Proposal Meeting

The first step in selling your home is to arrange for one of our experienced Marketing Consultants to carry out a Marketing Proposal Meeting where we can discuss our services, advise you of the current market trends and give you our recommendation on a marketing price.

Budgeting for your move

Once you have ascertained what your home is worth the next step is to speak to a mortgage advisor who can help you plan for your intended move. If you do not require a mortgage we would recommend you think through the moving costs such as legal fees, stamp duty, agents fees and removal costs etc. so you have an idea of how much the move is likely to cost.

Arranging a solicitor

We recommend deciding on a Solicitor before a buyer is found, this way once an offer has been agreed the solicitors can be instructed to get started on the legal work immediately thus avoiding any unnecessary delays.

Getting your home ready for potential buyers

First impressions are vital when selling a property; you need to ensure that your home is presented in the best light to entice potential buyers. Ensure the grass is cut and the garden is tidy, give a fresh coat of paint to any rooms that you think may need it and de-clutter as much as you can.

Marketing your home

Once you are ready we will come and take photographs and marketing details for your property. This information will be compiled and emailed out to our extensive database of buyers looking for their next home as well as added to our website, RightMove and Zoopla.

Agreeing a sale

When we receive an offer on your property we will check the buyer’s ability to proceed from checking the chain behind your buyer, if there is one. In the event they are a cash purchaser with no related sale we will obtain proof of their funds. Once we have all the information then we will write to all parties to confirm the sale and the legal process will commence.

Legal work before exchanging contracts

Once instructed the Solicitors will commence work on progressing the legal side of the sale. This will involve searches, raising and answering queries, checking through all documents and where applicable dealing with the relevant mortgage company for the finance. This process should take an average of 4-6 weeks however this does vary greatly from sale to sale depending on the complexity.

Exchanging contracts

A sale is not legally binding until such time that the contracts exchange. At the point of exchange a date will be agreed for completion once exchange of contracts has taken place and dates have been agreed you can book your removals and notify your contacts of your moving date and new address.

Completion / moving date

This is the final stage of the process and the day on which you must vacate your property as the purchasers are now the legal owners. Agents will not release keys to your new home until they have had confirmation from the solicitors that the funds have arrived, this usually happens in the middle of the working day often between the hours of 11am and 3pm.
