    Discreet Marketing Option

    We don't just rely on the internet to sell houses. Every year we sell a number of houses that never appear on the open market.

    There are many reasons why sellers wish to sell discreetly. It does not adversely affect the sale price. Good buyers appreciate the exclusive opportunity of being introduced to discreetly marketed properties and are happy to pay the right price.

    Many buyers given this opportunity are also happy to wait and allow a seller time to find their next purchase. This creates an excellent environment for the seller as they can then search with confidence, having had the minimum of fuss selling.

    • Seller Testimonial

      It was a pleasure being on the market with you!
      We had been on the market with various other agents for nearly a year, unable to sell our not so easy to sell cottage. Within a month, OJ had sold it THREE times, two being pull outs, but the third one concluding in a successful sale! We found OJ to be honest, practical and extremely knowledgable in their field of expertise. George was a constant support from beginning to end, offering helpful solutions to all the various issues that arise in this rocky process.

      I felt him to be almost like dad offering genuine and professional advice that would guide me to the best outcome for me. I found him and his colleagues, Robin and Kelly, to have heart in what is usually a cut throat industry. For us, OJ was a winning move, with us completing the sale yesterday - with the full asking price! I would absolutely recommend OJ without a shadow of doubt! Thank you guys for everything! It really was a pleasure being on the market with you!
