Don't miss the Christmas surge of activity
  • paragraph

    Each December millions of people make the most of their time off to window shop for new properties from the comfort of their own home. When we return to work in January we always have a wave of enquiries to respond to; last year we received 922 enquiries while the office was closed over Christmas. This results in a significant number of great lets every January.

    However, if you want to let your property at the best rent and to the best tenants in 2017 you need to list your property with Finders Keepers before Christmas - the earlier the better. Finders Keepers sealed a total of 348 lets during December 2015 and January 2016, illustrating that house hunters are still actively searching for their perfect home over the party season.

    Listing your property with Finders Keepers will mean that you can start your new year with a bang, safe in the knowledge that your property will be reaching its full rental potential.

    Make the most of the festive house hunting traffic and act now.

Our people make the business
  • Introduction

    Which is why we invest heavily in training. Each person has a bespoke training plan, and 84% of our staff is NFoPP qualified. Our training's excellence has been recognised by the National Training Awards (2010), Sunday Times (2009) and Negotiator Magazine (2009) award schemes.

    Our 8 offices each have an Office Manager, letting managers and administrators, property managers and an on-site client accountant. We also have furnishing and building divisions and an investment service with their own 'Office Manager'.

    All Office Managers have managed their own portfolio of properties - Excellence has to start at the top. We will not appoint an Office Manager until they have had experience managing a team of properties for a year. 90% of our Office Managers have been with the company for more than 10 years.

    Our letting staff is not on commission - We want the focus to be on the quality of tenant rather than a false economy of putting a tenant in an unsuitable property.

    Property Managers are hands-on and have their own portfolio of properties. The benefit is that they know the history of the property and can build relationships and trust with the landlord, which is at the heart of good service.

    Our company values are: Expert, Dynamic & Scrupulous

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      The service from FK has always been exemplary
      This property has been on your books with us as Landlords for the last 14 years and whilst we have seen Property Managers come and go the service from FK and your office has always been exemplary.My wife and I cannot thank you enough for all the professional work that you have done on our behalf over the years.

      Daniel Oakley, landlord
    • Landlord Testimonial

      They really went the extra mile

      "We would like to thank the staff at Finders Keepers Witney for their excellent help in getting our recent buy to let purchase up and running. They really went the extra mile. Finders Keepers pulled all the stops out and organised the tradesmen etc. It was a very busy time of year for us so we could not do much ourselves. Everything was done far quicker than we thought possible. In fact Finders Keepers even got a tenant lined up before the work was all finished. We now have a smart property letting well from mid January 2013."

      Nick and Edwina Williams, landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Our first experience of letting was stress free

      Anne Davies, landlord

    • Landlord Testimonial

      The entire staff is passionate about the company

      "It was apparent that the entire staff is passionate about the company and strives to provide the best possible service for their clients. The detail on the check-out notes was impressive and clients are allocated a designated Property Manager enabling all involved to build a strong relationship and enjoy exemplary communication"

      Sunday Times Judge's Report

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      There is truly no comparison

      "Through this painful and stressful process of relocating to the UK with my family, the help, support and guidance I have received from everyone in your team has been priceless to us, and I have honestly felt like I was your only and most valuable client all the way through. I have never had the privilege of receiving such a perfect service from any company I have contacted in the past, and there is truly no comparison with the other letting agencies in Oxfordshire I have contacted through this process; it's just a different planet in respect of commitment to your clients."

      Francisco Hevia, tenant

    • Tenant Testimonial

      I would certainly recommend Finders Keepers
      "I have been very impressed with your service throughout the whole year, and the speed at which you have been able to fix any problems that have arisen with the flat. I would certainly recommend Finders Keepers to others."

      East Oxford tenant
    • Tenant Testimonial

      The best property manager that I've had in 26 yrs
      "Thanks very much for all your help. Not just in the preparation for the handover, but for the entire duration of my tenancy. You have, without doubt, been the best property manager that I have had (and I've been renting for 26 years!)"

      East Oxford tenant
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I was greatly impressed with the speed of response

      "Thanks for the fantastic service you provide. When I originally contacted Finders Keepers I was greatly impressed with the speed of response - I think I saw properties and agreed the tenancy in under a week from initial contact. Since then your help and advice has been a shining beacon in a sea of mediocrity. Most other agents seem to treat prospective tenants as second class citizens. When I contacted a competitor about rentals it took a week for any response. Well done."

      Marcus Rann, tenant

    • Tenant Testimonial

      I always found Finders Keepers very helpful

      "I always found Finders Keepers very helpful and always quick to respond. Any problems I had in the house I rented were solved competently and efficiently and in a very friendly manner."

      Victoria Cairns, tenant

    • Tenant Testimonial

      You are the best property manager that I have had

      "Thanks very much for all your help. Not just in the preparation for the handover, but for the entire duration of my tenancy. You have, without doubt, been the best property manager that I have had (and I've been renting for 26 years)!"

      Mark Burgess, tenant

    • Tenant Testimonial

      We've used Finders Keepers for over 10 years

      "Our Company has used Finders Keepers for all company tenancy needs for over 10 years. The staff are extremely helpful and go that extra mile to ensure they meet our company, and employee, needs."

      Abbi Duddridge, Lotus F1 Team Ltd
