"I cannot express how wonderful these guys are-James and Matthew are two kind and compassionate men that guided my late Mum and Myself through the stressful task of selling her house while she had a terminal illness and only lived for 6 weeks ! They were sensitive and did all the running around and chasing solicitors for me-not once did they hassle me like other agents! I cannot rate them highly enough and always recommend them! Thanks guys."

"Matthew and his team provided first rate service during the sale of our house in 2015. He demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the local market and his marketing plan proved highly-effective in attracting interest in our property. He communicated effectively with us throughout the sale process including liaising with other estate agents for our buyers and the sellers of the house we moved in to. Well done Matthew and team!"

"I put my house on the market with Breckon & Breckon as they had successfully sold a number of properties in the area. James was an excellent agent, always keeping me fully informed re viewings and supplying feedback. My house was sold at the asking price, which was considerably higher than I had anticipated, within 10 days of going on the market. Throughout the sale James kept me up-to-date on how things were progressing. In addition Breckon & Breckon were the agents I purchased my present house through. Again James was excellent, helping me to secure the property quickly and keeping me fully informed of progress.

"Having never actually sold a property before we found the help and guidance offered by Matthew at Breckon and Breckon was extremely useful and informative along every step of the process. It made the whole experience a lot less difficult that we had expected."
By Keith A 3 years ago
"Found my experience of both buying and selling my house with Breckon last year very positive. When there was an issue I felt that it was dealt with immediately and when things needed to be organised, chased, etc it was always done when they said it would be.
In an industry where quite a number of people can seem dishonest, the staff at Breckon portray the opposite and do it very well. Spending hundreds of thousands of pounds is stressful enough as it is so having someone you feel is actually working with you and wanting the best for you I found very reassuring. I'd happily recommend the team in Headington to anyone else looking to buy or sell in the area.

"I had excellent service from Breckon & Breckon, in particular Matthew Heavens and colleagues Ross, Laura, and Amy, and Jan the photographer. They were prompt with everything - returning calls, reporting interest in the property, producing draft brochure, and covering for each other's absence/leave etc. They were very clear about things like terms of service, timescales, asking price etc. The brochure they produced was excellent. and they were happy to include my amendments. They were also up-front in a friendly and clear way about things I needed to do to improve the property and increase its chances of selling - perhaps tricky messages for them to deliver but they did it very well. Overall I would definitely recommend them.

"After months of ups and downs, we finally sold my Mother's house in Marston. We couldn't have done it with out Breckon & Breckon's help. After a couple of sales fell through, and the surveyors report didn't reflect well on the property. Matt, Ross & the Team never gave up. A buyer was found, and my Mother moved into her new property yesterday.
Thanks once again.

Definitely use them again, but hopefully not too soon!! Thanks guys.

"We just bought our fist place from B&B Headington and found the experience to be pleasant overall. Right from the beginning, their agents were nice and as FTB, we found them to be patient and helpful during the entire course. We conducted several viewings of the property prior to exchange and the B&B team were efficient in organising these. Matt, who handled our sales was great and provided us with the required contact/assistance, when requested. I will wholeheartedly recommend B&B to my friends and family."

"We recently sold our property through Breckon & Breckon and they managed the sale very efficiently and professionally. Trying to sell a property when living overseas is a difficult task in itself but Breckon & Breckon made it an easy and smooth ride for us. Especially Matthew and Ross deserve an applause for their timely communication and coordination skills.
We wish the entire team all the very best.

"All I can say is 10 out of 10 for the Headington team. We knew our house sale would be a slow one as we live out in the sticks. However with the utmost support from Ross our main contact along with Matthew and Laura we agreed a sale at a relatively small discount. They offered great support from the on set and were totally professional but friendly too. Where some agents may have bullied us into a huge price reduction to sell fast they totally supported us and we achieved a great price. 100% recommendation, thank you so much guys! We even had a celebration meal as we have exchanged and due to complete shortly."

"Matthew worked hard to guide us and his vendor to a successful transaction. He was understanding when problems arose, and I felt he was fair to us whilst always keeping the best interests of his client to the fore. He was well supported by the rest of the team in the Headington office. I've now bought twice through Breckon and Breckon and have been impressed by their professionalism and efficiency both times. They will be top of my list when I come to sell.."

"Breckon and Breckon were recommended to us, and its very hard to fault them.Matthew, Ross and all the team were unfailingly polite and efficient, letting us know about progress at all stages, sorting out errant house alarms and checking information onsite (especially useful as we dont live near). The house sold very swiftly, for above the asking price. Whats not to like?"

"I can not speak highly enough of Matthew and his team at Breckon and Breckon during recent sale of our property.
Always curtious , helpful and professional . Dealing promptly with any questions or issues.
Having had to have dealings with a different Estate Agent regarding our purchase,there just was no comparison with the level of service provided.
I would definitely recommend Breckon and Breckon and if we ever move again I would not even consider another agent."

"Matthew at Breckon & Breckon recently oversaw the sale of our property. He was knowledgeable, always advising us thoughtfully, never pre-emptive or trying to impose. He was totally attuned to our needs and really helpful.
Our situation was made more difficult as we struggled to find a suitable property having potentially sold ours very rapidly. Matthew liaised between us and our buyers over a protracted period of time with great patience and sensitivity until we were able to purchase something we knew was right for us.
A big thank you to Matthew, Laura and all the staff at Breckon who helped ease what was a potentially stressful situation to its happy conclusion..
We are so p;leased we found the right people.

"We used Breckon & Breckon to buy a property in Marston, Oxford in 2017. Our agent was Ross Mabbutt throughout and we were very happy with his service and would definitely use Breckon & Breckon again. In particular, at various points when we needed to put questions to the sellers or arrange on site visits he communicated our requests very rapidly and got back to us soon, so this was not a cause of delays as can be in some house sales. I never had trouble getting hold of Ross or someone else from the office; on just one occasion when he was out of office his manager Matthew Heavens took my call and helped me set up a site visit with a contractor, so there was no delay. We also feel that our interests and those of the sellers were faithfully represented. In short, happy to recommend this agent and agency."

"Following a family bereavement, my family and I were left with the difficult decision to sell our beloved family home. From the beginning of the sales process, Ross and Matthew gave me realistic expectations about what could be achieved for the house sale, and I was assured by their professional approach and detailed market knowledge. Through some thoughtful and extremely competent estate agency work, Ross went on to deliver, what can only be described as the "perfect" buyers. He kept me fully informed of developments throughout, working courteously and efficiently. I couldn't be more grateful for his patience, professionalism and sensitivity at every part of this journey, and am truly delighted with the outcome. Thank you so much. Lorraine K."

Communication with him was easy; he never failed to return calls or to make me feel a valued customer."

"The Breckon & Breckon ream handled both our sale and purchase. We primarily interacted with Ross, who was unfailingly prompt, sharp and professional. He quickly ascertained our aims and priorities and worked toward them. When it was clear that we wanted to push forward on an accelerated timescale, he did everything he could to make that happen. He was never condescending or insincere, and we never doubted that he was looking after our interests. He and Matthew were invariably straight in dealing with us, including when their advice or news was not what we may have wanted to hear. It made a difficult, stressful processs much easier and less painful. The broader Headington team were also great, and operate as a very high functioning team of professionals. Overall, we could not have asked for better support and service. Written from beside our cozy new fireplace - thanks Ross and colleagues!"

"The service we received from Breckon &Breckon while selling our house was excellent. Melissa Bush dealt with our sale and was professional, knowledgeable and approachable. We were selling our Oxford property while living in Scotland, and were always kept fully informed of any developments. Although the process turned out to be very stressful due to our first buyers pulling out at the last minute, Melissa went out of her way to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible. We couldn't have been happier with how the sale was handled. Thank you. "

"I rate the service we received as excellent, for the following reasons:
The staff were very approachable, efficient and supportive, and we were kept fully up to date on all the developments during the sale of the property.
Many viewings were conducted in the absence of the householder; we trusted completely the staff members who accompanied potential buyers.
We also found that we received very constructive advice when we discussed matters linked to adjusting the sale price of our property. Their professionalism was much appreciated.
We will be very happy to recommend Breckon & Breckon to family and friends in the future.

"Based on recommendations and having met Matthew Heavens we decided to instruct Breckon & Breckon to sell our house. Matthew, Ross and Melissa provided excellent and informed advice and were proactive in coordinating and advising on viewings, enabling us to secure a buyer quickly.
One of the reasons we choose Breckon & Breckon was because of their excellent coverage of the Headington market. As a result, we were then fortunate to secure our next house also through Breckon & Breckon. We would definitely recommend Matthew, Ross and Melissa to any prospective seller or buyer. "

"Matthew came to see us when we decided to sell our property in Headington. He immediately inspired our confidence, by demonstrating his knowledge, experience and competence as a Headington based agent. We were thus perfectly happy to leave the whole process in the hands of Matthew and his professional staff - and they didn't let us down.
Melissa Bush handled the detail of the process, from the initial stages, when potential buyers were showing interest, through to getting a sale agreement and on to final completion, At every stage, her communication with us was totally excellent. She liaised brilliantly between us and our buyer. and was really conscientious throughout, even visiting the house to photograph the final meter readings for us, on completion!
So a big thank you to the Breckon & Breckon team in Headington., for managing a painless transaction. We wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend you to anyone wishing to buy, sell or let property in the Headington area."
