Ross is Oxford born & bred and has worked in Oxfordshire his entire career. His local knowledge and connections are second to none. He joined the team in 2016 as an experienced negotiator and was shortly promoted to Assistant Sales Manager of the successful Headington office.
"The person I dealt with most was Ross Mabbutt at this branch and I was impressed with how well he kept me informed at each stage of the selling process, which was particularly valuable for me as I was travelling a lot during the lead up to the successful sale of my house in Headington. I would have no hesitation recommending him and his agency."

"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.

"We used Breckon and Breckon for our sale (and purchase) and were really pleased with the results. Ross, Matthew and the team were totally efficient and professional at all times - but beyond that, they were always ready with sensible advice, helping us to keep our heads at all stages of the process."

"As the title says the three things you want in a house sale/purchase, Breckon and Breckon have made this our easiest move to date.
Fantastic service from all the team but a special thank you to Ross.
Without a doubt we will be recommending to all our friends and would not hesitiate to sell our property with them again.
Thank you again. "

"We had great service from Matthew, Ross and Laura. They helped us through our stressful sale (well seemed stressful to us but probably just another day at the office for them)!! Always on hand with good advice, nothing ever seemed too much trouble, phone calls always returned straight away so never left in limbo.
Definitely use them again, but hopefully not too soon!! Thanks guys.
Sally, Simon 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."

"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."

"I found Ross Mabbutt to be unfailingly efficient and courteous. He kept us informed as to what was happening at all times, and did his best to see the deal through to everyone's satisfaction. This involved a fair amount of chasing up at various times but I would not fault his commitment at any point. 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!"

"Very professional and efficient. Queries are responded quickly as well as to inform us the progress at any stage.
Ross Mabbut is very professional and courteous with good knowledge of local Oxford market in general, and the property that we were interested in. In addition, other staffs are as efficient and friendly inc. Melissa Bush, whom I never met but enganged in a polite but friendly telephone conversation and advice.
We were also pleasantly shocked when the ‘Sold’ sign was removed immediately in the early morning after completion date. That is one example of how efficient they are. Thumbs up.."

"Breckon & Breckon in Headington have done a fantastic job from first contact to completion (today) in my recent house purchase. Ross, my main contact, has taken endless trouble to show me the house, keep me updated and answer my (many) questions promptly, well above and beyond my previous experience with estate agents. Both Ross and Matthew have been straightforward, pleasant and a pleasure to deal with. I felt Breckon and Breckon have genuinely wanted to make the sale go smoothly and satisfactorily for all parties, not just the sellers. I have already recommended them to a number of friends!"

"I bought a house where Ross Mabbutt was the agent. I found him to be very professional, helpful and amenable at all times. There were one or two complications during the process, but Ross did a great job in ironing the issues out and liaising between myself, the vendor and all the solicitors involved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and he will be my first port of call as and when I come to sell. When Ross wasn't available, his colleagues in the office were also very helpful and he always received and responded quickly to messages."

"I can't fault Breckon & Breckon. Not only did they provided an excellent service throughout the sale, more importantly it was handled very sympathetically. After living in the only family home he had ever known for over 50 years, my father and I found selling up an emotional experience. Ross (Breckon & Breckon) was understanding to a fault, listening carefully and more importantly not rushing us.. He kept us in the loop at every stage and was always available and more than happy to provide advice when needed, we really can't thank him enough!"

"We have recently bought through Headington Breckon; Ross was the agent. He was very professional and knowledgeable from the initial viewing, all the way through the process. He was honest and trustworthy, asking questions to solicitors & vendor where he did not know himself. As always, there were bumps in the road and Ross smoothed them with hard work and determination. Pleasure to deal with and look forward to engaging with Breckon in the future."

"During our property search in Oxford we came into contact with numerous estate agents.. Breckon and Breckon were head and shoulders above the crowd in terms of a high quality professional service that made the buying process as smooth and straightforward as possible. Communication was excellent throughout and we would strongly recommend Breckon and Breckon for their excellent service. Ross and Melissa at the Headington office were very helpful and professional. We would recommend Breckon and Breckon to anyone wanting to buy a property. We were so impressed with the service that we explored letting options with Breckon and Breckon. Amy in the lettings team has been enormously helpful providing a first class letting service. Thank you to the B and B Headington Team."

"The whole team at the Headington branch were friendly and extremely professional. The .viewings (and there were many of them!) were booked in and carried out efficiently and were always on time with no hassle for us.
When we got an offer Ross negotiated and we got the offer that we wanted.
Having gone through the whole process I feel that selling your house is much more than the marketing and arranging the viewings, Ross kept the whole procedure running smoothly. He was in regular contact with our buyers and solicitors, ensuring that all parties new what was happening, what we needed to do next and what we were waiting for.
Thank you to Ross, Matthew, Laura and Melissa who all guided us through our house move! We would thoroughly recommend them.

"Breckon and Breckon, and Ross Mabbutt really did the job for us.
We were 'selling at a distance' - this was a parental home - and we depended on Breckon and Breckon as our people on the ground in Headington. They kept in contact, always returned calls, and called us when there was news (even if it was of delays), and did all the progress chasing with our purchaser and their chain we could hope for.
Also helped us solve property related matters which it would have been hard for us to sort from over 100 miles away.
I would recommend them to friends in Oxford area no problem."

"Huge thanks to Matthew, Ross and the team at Breckon and Breckon for guiding us through this process. From the valuation stage Matthew’s local knowledge and experience was reassuring and undoubtedly very genuine. The fees and contract was all clear with no hidden costs. Once on the market Ross took over and gave us absolute confidence that both our sale and purchase we’re being monitored closely. Any queries were responded to quickly. Communication was excellent throughout and I would not hesitate to recommend this branch to others. "

"Breckon & Breckon provided me with excellent service from the moment I asked them to market my property through to exchange of contracts.
The photos they produced for the brochure showed my house at its very best. They were always very flexible and accommodating when arranging viewings and always worked hard to get feedback following the viewings.
Once my property was sold they continued to support me by liaising with solicitors and my buyers, always ready to offer advice or explain what was happening. They took me through the whole process with great care and attention - Ross, Melissa and Matthew were all amazingly supportive.
I would thoroughly recommend Breckon & Breckon in Headington to anyone contemplating putting their house on the market. "

I was advised in advance of each of the many viewings and feedback was provided in every case. Ross and Melissa kept me informed throughout, and answered all my calls and emails promptly.
As the Headington branch is a small office, I felt I received a very personal service.

"We sold our house through Breckon and Breckon and also bought our new house through them. Five years ago we also bought this house (that we have just sold) also from Breckon and Breckon! They are great local estate agents, lots of local knowledge, very professional and approachable and best of all not at all aggressive or pushy, which sometimes estate agents can be. They were very good at staying in touch and very helpful. We would definitely recommend them for both the selling and buying process. We dealt mainly with the Headington branch and all of the team there were brilliant. "
