Andrew joined Breckon & Breckon as Sales Manager in the Autumn of 2011, opening the new Headington Office. He brings with him eighteen years of experience, fourteen of which have been spent working in the Abingdon and South Oxfordshire area. The new Abingdon office was opened in the Summer of 2014.
"From the very start we knew we would be in safe hands. Rachel Mazonowicz who valued our property was professional but so easy to get along with. . Her advice was informative and direct and it gave us confidence that we had chosen the right agent which we undoubtedly had. Once a buyer was found she kept us informed every step of the way and what turned out to be a rather difficult sale was made so much easier by her unflappable, composed and reassuring manner. At times of stress she would always restore my faith, and would go the extra mile to find out answers to any issues I raised. We really couldn't thank her enough for which she did for us and a better Estate Agent would be hard to find."

"Andrew, Rachel and the rest of the team at Breckon & Breckon were a pleasure to deal with - always willing to help out no matter what. We appointed them to sell our property, and to find us our next home, both of which they managed to our complete satisfaction. Would not hesitate to recommend them to others looking to buy or sell."

"Rachel and Andrew (and staff in Abingdon office) carried us through our house purchase in a most professional, helpful and pleasant way. When carrying out viewings, they always ensured best appearances (of the property and of themselves). They showed patience, rather than hurriedly persuading us to reduce the asking price. When we had an offer and had difficulty getting replies to our offers for our house purchase, in London (through a different estate agent), Andrew aided us in pushing the sellers to respond. When, later, we had .problems with the chain including our buyer, they were active in making the chain work and come to completion. In other words, they did more than merely put up our house for sale."

"From the start of the process of selling our house and buying the new one, both Andrew and Rachel were friendly, supportive and efficient. They kept us regularly updated with how the sale and purchase were proceeding. Both went above and beyond the call of duty; nothing was too much trouble. They made what is reputedly one if life's most stressful experiences undoubtedly easier, even helping us to iron out communication difficulties with the mortgage company and finding us an excellent removals firm. Should we move again we wouldn't hesitate to use Breckon & Breckon and cannot thank or recommend Andrew and Rachel enough."

"I went to a few viewings through Beckon and Breckon Abingdon and found their manner very professional and knowledgable. I was persuaded to view a house which I had previously dismissed. We ended up buying the house and thank Andrew for making this process go well. We decided to use Breckon and Breckon to sell our house. They pulled out all the stops with advertising etc and managed to get a buyer within 3 weeks. We received individual attention from Rachel at all times. Again the selling process went smoothly due to her attention to detail. I would recommend Breckon and Breckon Abingdon to anyone selling or buying in the future,"

"I have sold my flat and bought a house recently. The house was in a chain and the whole process turned out to be far more complicated than I've ever imagined.
But thanks to Andrew and his team every issue was solved.
I felt that the service I got from the team was personal. From the start to end I dealt with the same people Andrew and Rachel, I could contact them any time by phone or email, the replies to the emails came promptly. Whenever I had questions or requests they were dealt with quickly. When I needed advice I got very useful, honest ones.
Not only I'd recommend Andrew and his team, I would very much like to use their services again (if/when I sell and/or buy again)."

"Everyone that I have been in contact with in the last 18 months from purchase of properties to their letting have been smooth as possible.
The staff are helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Their professional approach, guidance and seeing tasks to fruition are greatly appreciated. More importantly, I feel I can trust them to do a good job."

"We can't fault Breckon and Breckon who dealt with the sale of our property. At times this was very stressful as our buyer lost their buyer twice, but Rachel's ever calm and confident manner kept us on an even keel. When Rachel wasn't available Andrew knew exactly what was going on at all times and was able to step in. In the end they got the sale through and did more for our buyer than their own agent did - I am sure they will choose Breckon next time too! They gave the impression that they were only dealing with our sale (which of course was not the case) given the high level of professionalism and personal service they gave at all times. Many thanks to the whole team in Abingdon."

"Andrew and his staff did a superb job in selling our house in 2014. Andrew in particular was so good that we nicknamed him "Mr. Ronseal" ... because he did exactly what he said he would, when he said he would ... !! I very much doubt if you will find a better and more user friendly agent than Breckon & Breckon.
By Geoff B 3 years ago
"The Breckon and Breckon sales team did a great job and we are pleased to recommend Andrew, Rachel and the rest of the team for showing and marketing our property.
Andrew was our primary contact and he marketed the property in a relaxed but very efficient way to suit our situation. He used marketing methods which succeeded in channeling buyers' interest and thus achieved the very best price - which exceeded our best hopes and the asking price.
Andrew was always professional and went the extra mile to smooth over any questions and issues. He was prepared to give us the time to keep us informed with the process from start to finish.
We had forgotten the system of house buying /selling and when minor issues arose we trusted his advice to resolve them. The solicitors' lack of communication caused some delays but we're very grateful for the input, reminders and help Andrew gave to progress the sale and we are very pleased with the outcome. Thanks Andrew, Rachel and Abingdon Breckon and Breckon team."

"We've worked with quite a lot of estate and lettings agents over the years and the team at Breckon & Breckon are by far the best.
Their level of service is what other agencies should aspire to; straightforward, reliable and knowledgeable. They made the whole buying, selling and letting processes much simpler and have taken a lot of the stress out of it for us.
Above all though, they are simply lovely people to work with.
We definitely recommend them."
By Garth S 3 years ago
"We sold our house through Breckon & Breckon in the summer of 2015. While not the cheapest of the agents we had through the door, we felt comfortable and confident with the service we would receive. This was confirmed with the high quality of the house details produced, the level of communication and the above asking price offers we received within a week of going on the market. They pushed through the sale, and gave us great support when the chain started to stagnate slightly and were the driving force in getting everything completed.
Rachel was our main contact but we had brilliant service from all members of staff. Could not recommend highly enough."

"Lauren Miller acted as the agent for the purchase of our second home. She was nothing but friendly and professional throughout the transaction, and went above and beyond to ensure we were able to exchange on our purchase in just 8 short weeks. We would definitely recommend Lauren and her colleagues. "
By Laura H 3 years ago
"Having looked around many houses prior to finding and exchanging on this one, we have met several estate agents and companies over recent months. Lauren and Andrew were by far the most professional, easy to get hold of, responsive and friendly we have met. No doubt about it. Thanks for making the whole process such a breeze. Will certainly keep you in mind for future sales and purchases."

"My mother put her cottage on the market as she wanted to down size and after making the decision we had three estate agents to come and view her home. We were very impressed with the professionalism and politeness of Breckon and Breckon and therefore decided to go with them.
We were glad we did as nothing seems to be straight forward when selling a property but Andrew and Rachel were fantastic in resolving issues quickly and were very reassuring with my mother of eighty one years. Needless to say the property was sold in double quick time with minimal hassle."

"Breckon, Abingdon, were the agent we were buying from, not our own agent, but Andrew Topping was excellent from start to finish, offering great support to us as well as his client. With a very tight and specific timeframe required to meet his clients requirements, he assisted in orchestrating the process and we moved on time, at the agreed date without any fuss.
Laura who showed us around the property was similarly very personable and made us feel at ease, allowing us to view the property in a leisurely way.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Breckon, Abingdon, as an estate agent."

Rachel and Andrew dealt with both our sale and purchase., due to their professionalism, experience and most wonderful aura we felt looked after from the beginning to the end.

From the initial visit to value my property until the day I was handed the keys to my new home, I felt that my needs were fully met and that I was treated as an individual - not just another person in a list of customers,
Everything went smoothly despite delays in the completion of my new property. I was kept informed of events throughout. Even the monetary transactions were prompt and dealt with so trouble-free in the background.
This was the first time I had sold and bought a property and I would certainly recommend Breckon and Breckon."

"I sold my property with Beckon & Breckon last month. They kept me up to date at all times and they were honest and reliable throughout. Andrew and Rachel and both lovely people who genuinely care about the sale and the experience of their clients. They are easy to talk to and very responsive. When there was a hold up with the process (which was entirely unrelated to Breckon & Breckon) they were very effective in getting things moving again. I cannot recommend Breckon & Breckon highly enough. They are completely different from any other agent l have dealt with. They are vastly superior."

"Rachel and the team in Abingdon were selling a property we were interested in, we saw it the day it went on the market and then prompty put in an offer. Rachel performed all the due-diligence measures on behalf of the vendors to ensure that we were in a good position to buy the property. I thought this was great as she was very protective of the vendors in ensuring that we were suitable to move forward with.
We were in a good position, there was no chain either side and we thought the process could happen very quickly to meet all parties needs.
How wrong we were! Almost everything that could go wrong went wrong and the whole process took over 6 months. There were tears from my wife, mortgage offers being revoked at the final hour, endless requests for paperwork, storm damage to the sellers' new property and completely inept solicitors.
Although Rachel and the team weren't directly engaged with us and we weren't paying them anything being the buyer, they went over and above what was expected. Rachel became my councellor, I would often phone her up to vent and let off steam as she was so involved, she genuinely cared and wanted us all to succeed. Rachel did her job to the highest degree and more, she dealt with all parties regularly and kept the whole process moving, which was extremely difficult at times. I think I spoke to Rachel daily and sometimes three times a day!
Breckon & Breckon, especially Rachel were exceptional throughgout. I would certainly recommend them to anyone in the future and already have done. When we are looking for our next move we will certainly be using Rachel and the team again.
I can't express how impressed I am with the end to end service we received, the goody bag when we picked up the keys was also a nice touch. If you use B&B, you certainly won't be disappointed."

"We were very fortunate to recently sell via the Breckon and Breckon Abingdon office and also buy our new property via the Oxford Office. This enabling us to have a trouble and stress free move. The house we sold was a very unique and quirky place, but a buyer was promptly found within 10 days which was perfect, and also being marketed right, we achieved the full asking price! Our dealings concerning our purchase were undertaken in a very personnel and professional manner and we were always kept in the loop which was very reassuring. Very satisfied with the service from Breckon and Breckon and would definitely recommend and use them again. Mr and Mrs U."

"Andrew and his team took on a property for us that wasn’t going to be the easiest to sell, empty and in very poor condition.
We received regular updates and a monthly viewings report until a buyer was found at a price we were pleased with.
Andrew kept in constant contact with ourselves, the buyer, and both sets of solicitors, right through to completion. We really think the deal could have fallen through if it hadn’t had such an input from the team at Breckon and Breckon."
