    FREE - RIGHTMOVE PREMIUM DISPLAY
    image cannot be displayed
    By using three photographs instead of the standard single picture Premium Displays increase the click-through rate of your home on Rightmove and brings enhanced buyer activity to your property.
  • paragraph

    FREE - COLOUR FLOOR PLANS accurately drawn
    image cannot be displayed
    We only use colour floor plans and show how many cars can be parked at the property. We draw our own floor plans as brining in contractors proved too unreliable and inaccurate. Each room is colour coded as to its use and the flow of a house can be truly appreciated from the plans we produce.
  • paragraph

    FREE - CUSTOMIZED MAPPING
    image cannot be displayed
    For each property we sell we produce three customized maps. The Red ring in the centre of each map lies exactly over your home. The first in Street Plan scale to help you find it, the second to show what schools, amenities and shops are nearby and in Town scale to show where the stations and town centre are. Most agents provide no customized mapping for their properties as it is an added cost burden. In the absence of customised maps buyers can find properties hard to find and do not successfully drive-by to check the location first. When this happens a viewing opportunity is lost. Think how many times you have been mis-directed because you are looking at a ring locator that actually relates to the postcode centre and not the house you are looking for.
  • paragraph

    FREE - 8-Page Brochures
    image cannot be displayed
    All our properties have 8 or 12 page brochures depending on their size. Content includes a full photograph gallery including aerial photography, floor plans, maps, local shop information, land registry maps etc. Often agents produce a set of details generated by a software property management system that have little thought as to how they are put together. The better your property details are the better price you are likely to achieve. All our brochures are free.
  • paragraph

    FREE - AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
    image cannot be displayed
    We own the equipment to produce aerial photographs which can either be singular photographs or a panorama depending on what is best suited to the property. We use our own equipment on site including a TV grade professional telescopic mast and DSLR cameras. It enables us to see over tall hedges, fences, trees and shrubs that otherwise get in the way. It is perfect for larger properties and makes townhouses look more natural. Houses that are on a slope really benefit from aerial photography too. We do not believe that only expensive properties should benefit from this technology. Agents often charge out aerial photography out at between £170 and £300. We do it for free.
  • paragraph

    AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY - How we do it.
    image cannot be displayed
    We use a telescopic mast with a professional pan & tilt head that enables us to mount  a DLSR camera at a height of over 20Ft. Cheaper alternatives can only support the weight of a compact camera and in our opinion are not fit for purpose. Our understanding is that drones will be banned by the Civil Aviation Authority after one became sucked into a jet engine at Heathrow during take-off which can cause catastrophic engine failure.
  • paragraph

    FREE - ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE
    image cannot be displayed
    If you do not have an energy performance certificate then we will buy it for you. If you have one already but need a new one because you have had energy saving improvements done we'll still pay for it. Agents typically charge this service out at cost of £50 or mark it up to £75 or sometimes £95. We provide them for free.
  • paragraph

    FREE - PROPERTY TOUR VIDEO CLIPS
    image cannot be displayed
    Our Property Tours are expertly made by specialists and produced with professional voice overs and soundtrack. They last for about 2 minutes each and increase the information absorbed by web browsers. They also increase the click-through rate of buyer enquiries on your property. Agents often charge this service out at around £100 - we do it for free

LETTINGS.
  • service

    Barton Fleming Lettings Ltd
    Barton Fleming Lettings Ltd was set up in 2012 and has quickly grown. The philosophy is based on fairness and honesty. So, for example, the day we receive rent from the tenant is the day our landlords receive their rent. We don't hang on to it and deny you of the cash-flow or the interest like some other agents do. Also we are very happy to use your own tradesmen, we don't take one-off administration fees for doing things that are just part of the job anyway and we don't skim off the top by taking commissions from tradesmen or marking up invoices. Similarly we don't have our own maintenance company then pretend otherwise. We are in it for the long haul and not to make a quick buck.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      We would like to personally thank you

      Dear Terry,

      Sorry for the delay in responding, but I have just had our broadband re-instated.

      In reference to Barton & Fleming Estate Agents, managing the sale of my daughters property.

      I consider the normal assumption the general public have of Estate Agents is that they do sometimes little for a large fee. In our dealings of my daughter selling and purchasing a property, and yourselves acting for her sale, we have personally found that this was certainly not the case with our dealings with your agency, as the service that you personally provided was always extremely professional, in a very dignified warm manner, and you worked tirelessly to bring about the sale and purchase to a final conclusion.

      We would like to personally thank you for your all your help, assistance, and the very professional service delivered with genuine concern and very good communication skills, that went beyond the normal 9-5 service hours, when we urgently needed help, out of hours, you dealt with the problems, again in very professional manner.

      This accompanied with a positive attitude towards the problems that occur in the normal process of buying and selling a property. We pleasantly found that every problem and hitch we encountered was dealt with in a timely manner, with a ready suggested solution proposed to deal with any issues arising, this has not been our previous experience in dealing with any other Estate Agents.

      Kind regards and many thanks

      Peter Sturgeon

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Thank you all so much for everything

      To Everyone at Barton Fleming,

      Thank you all so much for everything during the sale and purchase of my properties. To say it's been fun is an understatement and I appreciate all that you have done. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.

      Christine Cramer (sale of 77 Barry Ave & purchase in Marsh Gibbon)

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Honestly these guys were brilliant
      julie rutland - Honestly these guys were brilliant, they always got back to us promptly, they were highly professional and helped manage bidders in a sensitive situation. I could not fault them at all, we achieved a fantastic price for our house, far more in some instances that other agents even valued it at so we are delighted. Even after we had accepted an offer they continued to help, Colin in particular was great and managed communications and queries between us and the buyers in a very professional and efficient manner. He also helped considerably with the solicitors and moving things along. I would have no hesitation in recommending them all and if we were staying in the UK then I would definitely use them again. 
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Most knowledgeable about properties.
      Andrew Miller - a week ago-Having spent almost 2 years looking for a home in Bicester, we found out of all the estate agents Barton Flemming and especially Colin to be the most knowledgeable about the the properties, the area and the buying process.Having secured an offer on a house the process was one of the most drawn out processes me and my girlfriend have undertaken but thankfully Colin was on hand to push the relevant parties to ensure that the sale completed.I would use the services of Barton Fleming again and would certainly recommend other to do so as well.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      DON'T BOTHER LOOKING ELSWHERE THESE ARE THE BEST.
      Tim Cooke - Barton Fleming have got to be the best Estate Agents in Oxfordshire by far, Colin and his team could not of been more helpful with selling our house. It took them 4 days to sell and they service after that is excellent. There was an issue it was sorted straight away. Nothing is too much trouble for them and always a friendly greeting. DON'T BOTHER LOOKING ELSWHERE THESE ARE THE BEST.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      First class!
      Neil Marshall -  We have had a lot of contact with the Barton Fleming team recently and have always found them to be very friendly, helpful, approachable and professional. Colin has given us his time and advice very willingly in our new buy-to-let venture, and his advice has always been spot-on! The brochures that have been produced for our rental properties are of a very high standard and look very professional, and far superior to those produced by other competitors. Tim in the rental department has been exceptionally helpful and has kept us regularly informed of how things are progressing. The speed at which he found our first set of tenants was astounding. We can't recommend Barton Fleming highly enough and would like to thank them for all that they have done for us (and for all that they will be doing for us in the future as we won't use anyone else now). First class!
    • Buyer Testimonial

      first estate agents to actually listen.
      Tilly Langley -  As first time buyers who had visited the majority of estate agents in Bicester, these were the first estate agents to actually listen to what we wanted and not what they thought we wanted. Would really recommend them to future buyers. Colin and his team were very helpful and took us through the steps we needed to be able to successfully complete the sale.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Extremely helpful.
      Alan long -  Recently sold a property through Barton Fleming, highly professional service starting from initial valuation and advertisement package, communicated with me on a regular basis throughout and we're always available and extremely helpful when dealing with my requests.A big thank you to Terry who handled the sale, I would definitely recommend them to family and friends and will have no hesitation in using Barton Fleming again
    • Buyer Testimonial

      My first choice.
      Dan Maisey-  Barton Fleming offered a fantastic service during the sale of our property and onward purchase. Colin in particular went out of his way on many occasions to ensure things ran as smoothly as possible, even after our buyers pulled out at the 11th hour.If I were looking to sell another property in the future I would certainly make Barton Fleming my first choice. I would absolutely recommend them to any friends or family who needed a reliable and honest estate agency.Thanks for everything you did for us Barton Fleming.Dan
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Brilliant service.
      Kirstie Fiel - Brilliant service from Colin and the team. They did a fantastic job for us. Thoroughly recommend them if you are buying/selling in or near Bicester.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Friendly, helpful and above all professional.
      Rob Dowman -  We sold our house and purchased our new house in September 2014 through Barton Fleming.From the very beginning Colin was extremely friendly, helpful and above all professional. His attention to detail for creating the sale advert and eye for the perfect pictures were second to none.The information flow from both the sale side and purchase side (from both Colin and Terry) were clear and concise and often well ahead of the information being recieved from the solicitors.Any request we had regarding viewings, or timeline of events (we were buying and selling as a combination for the first time) were explained and we were made to feel like someone was working for our best interests. (Thanks Terry!)We made use of the onsite financial services, which was a very pleasant experience.Simon took the time to show me through the different mortgage options and what it would mean by using different mortgage companies, shorter/ longer term, etc. I would certainly use the services again in the future for re-mortgaging purposes.In summary, Whilst im not looking to move house again, I have recommended to friends and family to use Barton Fleming estate agents and financial services. (i see in the reviews that one of my friends has used Barton Fleming since i advised him and he also had a good experience).I would like to take the opportunity to thank the team at Barton Fleming for their support, this was friendly, considerate to our needs, detailed, professional with a keen eye to keep in mind what is important....the client (you).
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Sold in a very painless and rapid process.
      Jez Dye  -  We successfully sold our house via Barton Fleming in a very painless and rapid process. It was photographed on the Wednesday, on the website Thursday, and it was sold Friday to the second viewing through the door! I had my offer accepted on our new house the next day so remarkably all done and dusted in four days. Everything was smooth, fast and professional and i can't recommend them enough. Would happily deal with them again if needed but now moved to our 'forever' house. Thanks to Colin, Matthew and Terry.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Genuinely great at what they do!
      Wil Harris  -  My wife and I bought our first home through Barton Fleming. The details of the property were well produced and included good photos and a remarkably accurate floor plan. Terry and Colin were very helpful arranging viewings to fit in with our schedules. The guys also managed to keep the vendors on side when we encountered unexpected and unavoidable delays following negotiations and our mortgage offer and no doubt helped us stay on track to complete in a reasonable timescale.I have no hesitation in recommending Barton Fleming, they are professional, knowledgeable, friendly and genuinely great at what they do!
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Positive purchasing experience.
      Mrs Jones - Terry, of Barton Fleming Estate Agents, acted at all times in a totally professional and efficient manner. I would have no problem dealing with him, either buying or selling in the future. He is a credit to his firm and handled the business of selling me a property in a way that left me comfortable that I had dealt with reliable and trustworthy firm of agents.Due to the positive purchasing experience, I am using the firm to let my property. Jeanette and Janette from the letting dept. have been equally efficient and professional and made the letting process as smooth as possible.I recommend Barton Fleming Estate Agents.
