      Julien Powell - Negotiator
      I started working in Estate Agency soon after graduating from the University of Leeds. I have always had a passion for property as it has been within my family for many generations. Upon wanting to develop my knowledge in the field, I thought North Leeds was the perfect place to get started as there are so many different types of property to learn about. Whilst to develop both my interest in property and my interest in developing the best hair style, I saw that the way Preston Baker operated shared many of the same values and interests in ways of operation i.e. customer service and clever procedures. This is what made me become a negotiator at Preston Baker, Oakwood.

      After spending 6 years in the banking industry I decided for a change and moved into estate agency. I spent 2 years at a larger corporate agent doing what I do now. I moved across to Preston Baker in June 15 and have loved every minute of it. It is a positive friendly culture and a really forward thinking company.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Proactive selling approach that really works!
        I am absolutely delighted I decided to change estate agents for a 3rd time and picked you guys with the hope it would be 3rd time lucky! I was really impressed with James when he came to value my house. He was very professional and I was particularly impressed with his marketing strategies. The photos were awesome and the service from the team in the office even better. I knew the team were proactive as they had approached me several times as they tried to find my next home. The whole team knew every detail about my house and were very determined to help me sell my house. They generated 5 viewings in the first week and I had an offer at the asking price within 2 weeks. My expectations have been exceeded in every way!
      • Seller Testimonial

        Claire has been a consistent reassurance for me
        From the beginning of our house buying process, Claire has been a consistent reassurance for me and my husband. We have unfortunately had to endure almost every conceivable obstacle during this process, yet Claire and the girls in the Oakwood office, have provided us with honest, reliable information and kept us up to date at every turn. Our vendor pulled out, then changed her mind again. I was distraught, but somehow, Claire managed to calm trouble waters once more, and we complete on the house of our dreams tomorrow! Just in time for our first baby due in 3 weeks. I would highly recommend Claire and the team at Oakwood - they have been superb, and have gone over and above what is required of them at times to provide a first-class customer service. Thank you so much.
      • Seller Testimonial

        ...my calls were always returned...
        You have always been a pleasure to deal with. All your staff have always been reliable and courteous. Claire in particular has been a great help. If I ever rang and the person I wanted to speak to was not there, my calls were always returned as soon as possible. I always felt there was someone there to help me if I needed it. A special thanks also to James who was always contactable and a tower of strength.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Smooth service to help me buy my daughter's home!
        I recently purchased a property though Preston Baker and I was very impressed with the services I received. It was so smooth and straight forward - not one hiccough. Claire was absolutely impeccable: she made the whole process a pleasure andI would love to do business again in the future. P.S give Clare a promotion - she deserves it. Bless you all.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        "your leaflet drop...did the trick"
        Really happy with the assistance given by Preston Baker. Your leaflet drop in our required area did the trick and got us moving. All your staff were very obliging, knew us and treated us well when we rang, even though we were only buying through your agency. Thank you.
