      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Mrs H - July 16

        I sold my house through Penny & Sinclair last year and found their enthusiasm ; reliability and awareness of the local market an absolute breathe of fresh air compared to previous agents I'd been in contact with. A highly personalised service, clear & to the point communication & a great, stress free experience all round!  I have no hesitation recommending them to friends & family given their professional, hard working attitude & regularly do!
      • Seller Testimonial

        Mrs R - July 16
        Kate at Penny and Sinclair found a buyer for my house last year and made the process as smooth and pleasurable as it can be given the stress involved in any house sale! Her patience and kindness were appreciated as we negotiated the tricky ups and downs of finding an acceptable deal. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Mr S - July 16
        We decided to use Penny & Sinclair as they had good knowledge of the local area as well as having an office in Oxford. We liked their professional but friendly style and the fact that they kept a sense of humour when times were challenging! In our particular case, there were frustrating delays caused further down the chain, but Kate and Emma were always on hand to chase up progress and to keep us reassured that it would turn out well in the end - which it did. Thankfully they never seemed to tire of our (almost) daily need for updates! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Penny & Sinclair as their approach to selling houses is a great combination of industry knowledge and personal attention to detail.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Mrs B-H - July 16
        Having viewed many properties with various agents, it was Penny&Sinclair's professionalism and true understanding of client's needs that directed us towards a property that we would not have considered initially but which now, we're really excited about calling our home in the next two weeks. Thank you so much Kate & team!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Mr P- July 16
        Penny and Sinclair were the vendors agents for the house we bought in Charlbury in September 2015.They marketed the house very well though our first experiences with a certain member of staff (since departed) were poor.Subsequently we were looked after by Kate McKinnon who was excellent. She responded quickly to our many questions and seemed to have a genuine interest in us as people. Certainly the best individual we dealt with at any estate agency in West Oxfordshire.Highly recommended.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Mr Y- Summer 2015
        Estate agents have a poor reputation which is not deserved in the case of Penny and Sinclair. We bought our house in Burford through the local office during the summer of 2015. Throughout the process they kept us informed and conducted viewing at convenient times. Any question raised were immediately noted and responded to often the same day. Although we had rented a property in the area for the previous eight months, moving into a new town creates its own problems. After moving into the house we needed to carryout refurbishment of the property but had no knowledge or experience of local tradesmen. Whenever we asked for recommendations, Penny and Sinclair responded promptly. We could not ask for no better service and have no hesitation in recommending this company.
