    • Landlord Testimonial

      No nonsense, sound advice... led to peace of mind!
      Great service from James and his team. I needed advice about letting or sale of my house and James's guidance helped me make the right decision. No nonsense, sound advice which has led to peace of mind! I would recommend James and his team without hesitation.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Far easier than I expected,
      James gesner and his team have made letting my property far easier than I expected, my property went online the same day they received details and photos of the flat and within 24 hours a let was agreed! Cheers to a top bloke and all of his extra helpful team!
    • Landlord Testimonial

      What a fantastic job you and your team are doing!
      "It's over 6 years since James & Holly began fully managing property in Didcot on our behalf and I would like to say what a fantastic job you and your team are doing. I have been a Landlord for 30 years and we deal with a number of Letting Agents but none of them come close to the service your team provide. Keep up the good work." Christian Sollesse Landlord Great Western Park
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I cannot recommend them highly enough!
      Gesner's Property Management has made the whole process of letting our house very straight forward. From organising repairs and maintenance from trusted trade's people to arranging tenancies, they have been proactive and quick to respond. They have taken the all the hassle and stress out of owning and letting a property. I cannot recommend them highly enough."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      We would recommend them!
      "The priority for us is having our investment property well looked after and tenanted as much as possible. Holly and James have fully managed our property in Wallingford for the past 12 years. In that time it has never been un-let and the tenants they select are always of the highest quality. Their communication with us is excellent and they have access to very professional and reasonably priced contractors if work ever needs doing. We don't live near the property so it was important for us to have a professional, local company managing our property. We would recommend them to any prospective investor looking for a company who 'takes care of business'."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Fabulous team of people!
      "Fabulous team of people. They have helped me during the rental period of my house and sorted out the sale. Stressful for me as I had never sold a house before, but James and his team were brilliant. Thanks to all and especially Holly who had to deal with me the most (poor girl) xx"
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I would recommend James and his team to anyone!
      "I have used James to manage my rental property in the Ladygrove for the last 5 years and we have always had excellent tenants and exceptional service. I would recommend James and his team to anyone wishing to rent out their property."

    Why Use James Gesner Estate Agents
    • paragraph

      Experienced, Knowledgeable and Highly Motivated Staff

      Having been in business for almost 18 years James Gesner has built an excellent reputation for his hands on approach to selling and renting properties in the South Oxfordshire area. James and his staff have extensive local knowledge yielding approximately 50 years combined experience, with a wealth of knowledge and experience coupled with honesty, integrity and professionalism. Our reputation is extremely important to us and we take pride in what we do.

      Local People Looking After You

      When you instruct James Gesner to market your property we are not just selling your home we are selling the area in which we also live and work. Knowing your patch is paramount and we get asked all the time about the local schools, where the nearest shop is, which gym is best suited, and what golf club can I join. This is extremely important to us and in turn gives people the confidence that they are purchasing in the right area for their partners and families.

      Proven Results

      Many of our clients are from recommendation and repeat business. We regularly received gifts on completion day as well as testimonials.

      Honest Advice

      We always endeavour to give excellent advice which you can rely on, to vendors and purchasers alike.

      Dedication

      We are dedicated to seeing your sale through from our first point of contact with you. Being a family run business ethos is to look after you and to see the sale and purchase through to a successful conclusion so ensuring that you are happy and recommend our service to others.

      Local Versus National

      Gone are the days when if your property was at a certain price level you automatically instructed a National Agent. The Internet has now transformed how properties are marketed increasingly enquiries are through the web whilst it is nice to see your property in Country Life you the vendor pay for that privilege. Local Agents like us can and do offer National and International coverage through three avenues, our own super new website, Primelocation and Rightmove which are all extremely successful attracting enquiries worldwide and are recognised as the UK's two leading property websites, also our extensive newspaper coverage.

      Efficient And Friendly

      Long before it became the trend we offered to do accompanied viewings, both the vendors and the purchasers prefer this, it leaves you free to look after the children or pets and us to show prospective purchasers around your property and extol the virtues of it. Our offices are open 7 days a week 08:30 - 18:30 Monday to Saturday and 10:00 to 16:00 Sunday. The websites are there for you 24 hrs a day and updated on a daily basis.

      On first point of contact with you we will take the time to listen to all your requirements we specialise in fitting the right person to the right property, very often we liaise both a sale and purchase, at all times keeping you informed as to what is happening. This means keeping in touch with you your purchaser, solicitors, other Agents in the chain and Mortgage companies and last but not least the Mortgage valuer and Structural surveyor. We have an enviable reputation amongst local Mortgage valuers that when they need comparables they come to us as their first port of call, as they comment "If you don't know nobody does"!

      Most people do not realise that unless we can justify the price the purchaser is paying it will not value up on Mortgage i.e. if you need a high percentage Mortgage you will not get it if the comparables do not stack up.

      60% of the work on your sale and potential related purchase is done after a sale is put in hand if your Agent is doing their job properly.

      Staff Training

      We invest a considerable amount of time and money in the training of our staff, with all of our staff qualifying in their relevant fields afforded to us by both the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and the Association of Residential Lettings (ARLA).

      Helping to Support The Local Community

      We regularly support local events and in recent years James has run the London Marathon for two charities raising nearly £10,000 in the process. In 2015 we decided to support a local charity called footsteps and aim to raise at least £2,000 by the end of the year.

      Town, Village and Country Homes

      We are extremely fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful area and having been working in agency for almost 20 years James knows the area like the back of his hand. Having worked in both Wallingford and Didcot James is one of the most experienced agents in the area. South Oxfordshire has always been an extremely popular area to live being in such close proximity to London with easy commuter links via Didcot Parkway.

      New Homes And Land

      Land has always been in short supply in this area and this has culminated in this area in Clients seeking our advice as to whether they have a potential plot at the side or rear of their property. Often at times this is the case, and we successfully deal with the Planners on their behalf or introduce a specialist Planner to them. Over the years we have been the preferred Agent for a large number of well respected local Developers covering a 25 mile radius and more recently we have partnered with Taylor Wimpey who have asked us to be their recommended Estate Agent for rental properties.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        We will definitely be recommending James Gesner
        We have just sold our flat through James Gesner estate agents and purchased a house through another agent (we wanted to purchase a property through them but it unfortunately didn't work out that way!) James Gesner him self was the most down to earth, honest and upfront agent we met when starting the process. We liked him instantly and are glad we chose his agency! Our actual agent carl was just marvellous. He was excellent at doing all the chasing and made the whole process s...o effortless for us. Although we purchased through another agent it was Carl that we heard from with updates constantly and he was the one that helped us complete within 8weeks!! Thank you Carl for making a process we were dreading from a previous bad experience an absolute dream! We will definitely be recommending James Gesner estate agents to all and if needed we will be using them again in the future!
      • Seller Testimonial

        pleased with the service from start to finish
        I've just sold my house in Wallingford with James Gesner Estate Agents, and am really pleased with the service from start to finish. The turnaround time from taking the initial photos to getting the draft brochure was extremely quick, and the quality of this was great. James' local knowledge and contacts really helped, and we received and accepted an offer within three weeks of it being on the market. When James wasn't available, his team were really helpful and proactive

      • Seller Testimonial

        made us feel we mattered!!!
        We can not thank James and his team enough. They were an amazing team to work with when we sold our house. They went above and beyond to ensure we got the best deal. James kept in touch throughout and made sure we were happy throughout the process. After dealing with an agent in the town we lived in who was pushy and arrogant James made us feel we mattered!!! Thank you all xx

        Always a friendly voice to help me...
        We cannot thank David enough for all the help and support he has given to us. It is over 30 years since we sold and bought a house and a lot has changed. We would not have found it easy without Davids help. We would also like to say thankyou to James,Carl and all the staff. Always a friendly voice to help me no matter how many times I telephoned

      • Seller Testimonial

        The advert they created was great!
        After having 3 separate agents around, James and his team came round and gave an honest straight to the point appraisal of my property. The advert they created was great and they worked tirelessly and we're always in contact with me. After only 1 viewing the same couple came around the second time and it was sold. The service they gave was totally professional and top notch and any questions I had about the selling was no trouble. Well done all at James Gesner

        help from James ensured a smooth first-time buy
        We have just purchased our first home through JG Estate Agents and the thorough help from James ensured a smooth first-time buy. Thanks very much to the rest of the team who also contributed behind the scenes - two very happy homeowners!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Would not hesitate to buy a property through them
        James Gesner and his team were extremely helpful when we brought our house late last year. We had some challenges from the vendor and James and the team helped support resolution in a timely fashion. Would not hesitate to buy a property through them again.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        ...very helpful and patient...
        David from James Gesner was very helpful and patient during my property purchase. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a property in Oxfordshire.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        I would not hesitate in recommending them
        I live in Hong Kong as an expat and have just completed today on an investment property in Didcot, through the guys at James Gesner. Despite my bankers best efforts at screwing up the whole sale, I was blown away at the level of professionalism afforded to me at all times in the process. You would have thought I was buying a 6 bed mansion, rather than a 2 bed terraced. The levels of customer focus, expertise, empathy and patience David exhibited was of great comfort and I would not hesitate in recommending them, in not just the selling but also the highly professional letting side of their business.
      • Buyer Testimonial

      • Buyer Testimonial

        When we sell we will be in touch!
        When we spoke to James Gesner Estate Agents we knew they understood what we wanted.  We have never been sent anything that didn't fit our criteria and when we where shown round a property they were very knowledgeable of the house and the vendors position. We didn't actually find our house through them but they stood out above the rest. When we sell we will be in touch!
