    Breckon & Breckon is an independent firm of Estate Agents established in 1947 and now operating from a network of seven offices in the county of Oxfordshire.

    We are property professionals with many years of experience in the local market. Whilst we are constantly recommended by many firms of solicitors, high street banks and other institutions, we are very proud of the fact that the majority of our new business comes from the personal recommendations of past clients.

    As a privately owned company we are able to react quickly to changes in the market. We constantly review our marketing, often setting new standards for other estate agents to follow. As an established agent we have a large database of prospective buyers that is shared throughout our network of offices. This database is accessed through our state of the art computer system enabling us to match properties to buyers without delay. However, none of this innovation means a great deal if it is not backed up with the right staff. Breckon & Breckon has an enviable reputation and is seen as one of the most sought after companies to work for. Our staff are quite simply some of the most experienced property professionals that Oxfordshire has to offer.

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would not hesitate to recommend
      "Just wanted to say a big thank you to the Summertown office but in particular George Houlbrooke. I invited four leading estate agents round to value our house and I chose Breckon and Breckon not only because they know the area inside out but also because George was the only person who seemed genuinely excited to sell our lovely little cottage. He was always very quick to respond to any questions and was great at liaising with all parties involved. I would not hesitate to recommend Breckon and Breckon to anyone else!" Ms B, June 2015

    • Seller Testimonial

      excellence and worthy of recognition
      We have both bought and sold in Prime Central North Oxford with Breckon and Breckon. We have also had experience with other agents with supposedly more market Gravitas in Oxford based on central London connections. We have found on both occasions this is not the case. With Breckon and Breckon our purchase was not without complications due to multiple dwelling status and with our 7 figure sale was achieved from reference listing first time of viewing and at the asking price. The personal care and attention to contractual details never lapsed either all the way to completions. All in all par excellence and worthy of recognition as such. Mr& Mrs M, October 2014
    • Seller Testimonial

      absolutely brilliant
      Chris and his team were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. When our home search seemed to be going nowhere, he understood exactly what we were looking for and found it for us, navigating us through a lengthy and complex purchase process. They were never ruffled, always positive in the face of obstacles and always willing to go the extra mile. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Mr N, October 2014

    • Buyer Testimonial

      efficiency and thoughtful attention
      I recently bought a house in Oxford through Breckon & Breckon. Specifically, I dealt with George Houlbrooke. At all times I received very close, personal attention. George was always on hand to answer questions, and if he was out of the office my calls were returned very promptly. George was sympathetic to my desire to show various members of my family the house (as I was buying alone) and always cheerfully ready to appear with the key. He also made helpful suggestions regarding the lay out of the house and changes I wished to make. He arranged, on a pro bono basis, for an architect to look at the house. I thoroughly recommend Breckon & Breckon for efficiency and thoughtful attention. There was no 'hard sell' - just a willingness to expedite my purchase. Ms W, December 2014
    • Buyer Testimonial

      truly helpful
      "I am writing to thank you once more for your support in finding a property to buy in North Oxford. I have just moved to my new home and enjoy living here from the first day. I must agree with what you said during my first viewing, it is a perfect place for me! I very much appreciate that, unlike other agencies, you didn't bother me with offers of properties I would not be interested in; you made an effort to well understand my needs and you found me a suitable place. Your insightful comments and suggestions were truly helpful when I was making the decision about the purchase. I am also grateful for your kind support and guidance during the whole process of the transaction. It felt very comfortable to know that I could always count on your knowledge and experience. If, one day, I decide to sell the flat, I will definitely come back to you. While you were very supportive to me, I felt that you were doing an excellent job for the seller!" Ms K, March 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      great to buy a house from
