    Thinking of selling your property in Cheltenham or elsewhere in Gloucestershire? Let's guess - you've heard the usual scare stories about estate agents, maybe had a bad experience or two in the past. Above all, you want to make the most of your property asset. You expect a hassle-free experience, friendly, professional help and the best possible price.

    Please forget your preconceptions and estate agency stereotypes. Yes, other agents probably told you that they're different too. Except that we really are, because we designed Elliot Oliver to be very different when we launched at the beginning of 2014. And we'll prove it.

    We're not going to give you a hard sell here (or anywhere, for that matter). Of course we need a website, but the real proof of concept comes when you call in, when we listen to what you want to achieve, when we do what we promise we'll do, and when we get the best possible price for your property.

    Come and meet us, tell us about your selling plans over a beverage in our 'property café', call 01242 321 091 or email us.

    When we've met you won't just be thinking of selling. We're sure you'll be thinking of selling with Elliot Oliver.

    Step 1 - Getting To Know You
    As an estate agency, we strongly believe in the importance of understanding your individual needs. Equally, every property is different so a tailored approach is required. For this reason, we provide detailed consultations with our clients to learn everything necessary to showcase your property in its best light. Our expert staff will then advise you on how to get the most sales value out of your home or investment.
  • paragraph

    Step 2 - Securing The Sale
    We have the experience and specialist knowledge to sell your property in just 8 weeks. To achieve this, we use talented photographers and writers for professional presentation of your sale advert. Our estate agents then use innovative marketing strategies and industry knowledge to advertise in leading property publications and major online property portals.

    I'm Oliver Bishop, founder and driving force at Elliot Oliver. I'm passionate about property and obsessive about attention to detail - especially when your property dream is involved. I lead and support my team strongly as they deliver the bespoke service you deserve. My mantra? 'Take care of clients; treat everyone as individuals' - from property's high-flyers to the despairing tenant I once talked back from the brink...

    My background? Five years' managerial and directorial roles in Cheltenham and Birmingham agencies. Managing an Iranian businessman's 200-plus properties. Nine years' senior and area management for Lidl and Tesco. And being a buy-to-let landlord since 2004. That's the experience at your disposal.

    I'm hands on and rarely switch off. Home means emailing clients and checking markets. '9 to 5' means leading from the front: viewings, marketing, vendor and landlord meetings, and property inspections. Above all, making sure you enjoy an exceptional property service.

    It's not all work. R&R is socialising with my girlfriend, friends and family, Lady Antebellum or Andrea Bocelli on Play, UFC martial arts on TV, cars, interior design and revitalising travel.

    Then it's back to taking care of you.

    I'm Justin, co-owner of Elliot Oliver, lettings specialist, weekend 'forest warrior', husband of Kerry, Seth's dad and pre-dawn walker of Hugo and Jasper.

    There's Diana Krall and The Lighthouse Family on the car stereo, 25 years in property on my CV and The Thomas Crown Affair in my DVD library (the Pierce Brosnan remake: knocks the socks off the original!).

    Though Cheltenham's the centre of my world, I've Welsh blood in my veins! So guess what! My passion, when I'm not golfing, footballing or doing triathlon, is... rugby!

    And property, especially lettings. My guiding principles after managing hundreds of homes? Phone on, communicate, focus on you and treat you as I'd like to be treated. Result? The special rapport that secures your dream property or a profitable sale.

    Elliot Oliver wowed me with their fresh, honest approach to property. And the enlightened mix of technology and a comfortable welcome that's more like home than being at a typical estate agent.

    It's all true (or I wouldn't be here). Call and discover for yourself. I don't bite! Not even when summoned to a leaky pipe en route to my wife's maternity-ward bedside...

    That's customer care: my way; the Elliot Oliver way.

    I love the challenge of selling for a new, growing, property business in a market like Cheltenham. When I heard about Elliot Oliver I just knew I had to be their sales manager.

    I'd been working as senior branch manager for years and brought a wide knowledge of residential sales in my hometown of Bristol and Gloucestershire. I'm loving Regency Cheltenham with its amazing variety of properties and fantastic clients. Along with getting my head around early-morning networking breakfasts, I'm even developing a soft spot for The Robins (but it'll never match my lifelong passion for Bristol City!)

    Whether at the peak of the property boom or through more challenging times, I've always practiced honest customer service and worked hard to give every client a positive experience. Selling and letting property is a way of life, not just a job. My favourite aspects? Socialising and meeting new people is great. So's selling your property above asking price - you'd be surprised how often we do it!

    And at the end of another busy day? Nothing beats quality time with my partner and young son, catching up on sports on TalkSport, imagining owning a Koenigsegg or enjoying a round of golf.

    I'm Phil 'The Help', lettings manager, occasional runner, with little interest in sport, but crazy about music. That's why I play piano at Cheltenham restaurant Zizzi when I'm not looking after lettings. Musical influences include Coldplay and Michael Kiwanuka, with Bowie's Blackstar in the car at the moment (a little Citroen, not the Rolls-Royce I think Elliot Oliver should buy!).

    I'll get a buzz matching you and your ideal property, especially if it isn't something you originally thought of. Alongside integrity, service and classy properties, that's what we're about here.

    Having recently become a landlord, I can relate to your letting requirements. That was while I worked in London for a while - before the Cotswolds called me back. London's OK, but there's something special about Cheltenham's range of property - from Regency mansions to entry-level gems waiting to be found if you only know where to look.

    There's virtually nothing (legal and decent) I won't do to help you. One client was so thrilled by my efforts to pull the perfect rental 'from the hat' that she gave me her house-trained rabbit (it was a 'no pets' house). That was unexpected; 'Ted' and I now live happily together!

    The biggest lessons I learned in property letting before joining Elliot Oliver were the importance of honesty and following up everything.

    Joining such an ambitious small property business has challenged me in new ways compared to the large companies I worked for before - and the winner is you, our property client. That's because handling all aspects of our office management and property co-ordination uses my experience like nothing I've done before.

    Cheltenham's a world away from Southport where I grew up. But my experience, attention to detail, unflappability and problem solving are key to your rewarding property-management experience. When we work together, look forward to my northern warmth, integrity, professionalism and efficiency. Like my colleagues, I'll dirty my hands too - I had to when a tenant left dirty crocks in a property and I called in after work to spirit them away before a new occupier arrived... it's all in a day's work!

    Then it's the gym for me, Calvin Harris or Maceo Plex on the stereo, and home to whatever sport my boyfriend's enjoying - or World of Warcraft. Yes! I've a competitive streak; we should get a lime green Elliot Oliver tank to help us demolish the competition!

    I joined Elliot Oliver in 2015 with a background in senior-level Wholesale appliance sales and property letting. I love the challenge, the team's integrity and our amazing customers.

    When we meet, you'll notice that I'm ultra-focused, whatever I'm doing. It's the same whether I'm finding you the best rental property, looking for life's next lesson, reading Napoleon Hill's 'Think and Grow Rich' or immersed in an Ed Sheeran CD. I'm always looking for ways to a better, more helpful, consultative sale. I've even seen The Wolf of Wall Street six times and love it's positive lessons for anyone in business.

    My focus is on getting to really know and understand you and finding new ways to do 'better' better for you. That's what excites me. Your dream rental's out there, in a stylish contemporary property or one of Cheltenham's fascinating Regency masterpieces. I'll find it for you.

    In my book, successful people do what other people won't. No challenge is too difficult - if it's a tough one, it just means I need to work out how to improve. But not at any cost, because integrity is everything and I only get one chance to prove it. And I will.

    Hi! Cze¿¿! I'm Karolina, Sales & Lettings Co-ordinator, Jess Glynne fan, no sports allegiance and I melt around animals!

    Whether in English or polskie, I mean business - and love being part of our professional, competitive and refreshing approach to property.

    I take no nonsense, especially from myself! No-one's tougher on me than me; always pushing to exceed expectations, keep you updated and make you feel special. I love leaving people saying 'Wow!'

    Impossible? Can't? I don't know the meaning of the words. I'll ask 'how?', or for colleagues' help, but if something's in my power to do for you, I'll find a way.

    Yes, I'm a 'bit' determined as you understated Brits say. Detail minded too; an efficiency and customer service perfectionist. It's served me well in property. I love every minute; the variety of Cheltenham homes; the lovely people like you...

    I'm not 'Duracell Bunny' all the time; I balance professional drive with approachability and patience. And relaxation at evenings and weekends with my lovely hubby, gorgeous kids and puppy as we walk Leckhampton Hill, make authentic bigos or dream about American monster trucks. Oliver, could we have one in company colours please?

    Take one sales and letting professional; add admin hat and fade up the Deep House soundtrack. I'm Abi, busy co-ordinating Elliot Oliver's sales department to make sure everything runs smoothly! 

    I thrive on Oliver's vision and leadership. And being able to shake up local property markets. We're an amazing team for marketing your property: experienced; customer focused and no estate agency stereotypes anywhere. 

     I've worked in property since 2009, from handling administration to managing a lettings department. In fact, I'm the only one of us who's previously launched a property biz. Honesty, communication and never over-promising guide my work. 

    I've seen most things during my career, including an irate tenant camped in my office ( before Elliot Oliver) while my plumber replaced a condemned boiler that was supposedly safety tested. It wasn't our fault that it failed certification the morning the family were due to move, but I stayed on until everything was sorted at 11 pm! Our whole team's like that - we do whatever's needed. 

    Fortunately, not every night's a late one, I enjoy time with my gorgeous little boys, football-mad 'big boy', or supper and a chilled glass of vino with friends.

    Administration and accounting support for a young, vibrant team takes calmness, customer focus, integrity and loads of property experience. That's me, Georgy!

    Years in sales and lettings accounting means you're in confident hands for bills and payments. My eyes are on every penny of rents and deposits. And count on me to be calm and meticulous with other admin - from contractor liaison to helping with business-critical projects.

    After hours, a passion for pole and boxing fitness, aerial hoops and silks renews me after another day with a successful property agency. And when I'm not emulating Charlize Theron in the Dior ad, I'm probably cheering-on two rugger-mad sons...

    Nothing fazes me (not even tricky numbers or stuck lifts). Thinking on my feet and handling the unexpected probably comes from growing up in an army family! As does seeing different perspectives, knowing when to speak (or keep quiet) and keeping promises.

    Meeting lovely people, deadlines and sales targets, and giving great service make my perfect day. Actually, complete perfection would be an Aston DB9 (matching our sleek professionalism) to drive home - while unwinding with Radio 1 and celebrating another day at Cheltenham's best sales and lettings agency! Oliver?

    My role as Elliot Oliver's 'Saturday girl' belies the admin and client care skills I bring to welcome you and give the weekend's best 'meet and greet' service in Cheltenham property.

    I'm a rower, for whom the Oxford and Cambridge boat race is the year's sporting highlight. Like a perfectly coxed eight, our team is surging forward on the local property scene. It's an exciting time to be on Elliot Oliver's start-up team. Learning the property business perfectly complements my weekday work in recruitment. And the client-liaison skills that are vital when matching candidates to jobs are equally important in property sales and letting.

    Although I'm only in on Saturdays, my passion for property and meeting people makes this a favourite part of the week. It's always exciting to see the new properties since last weekend. Then there's your viewing or valuation to book in, office administration and marketing, and listening attentively to your property requirements. I love it.

    And when I'm not at work? I'll be at the gym, attending keep fit and Zumba, or relaxing with my partner, friends and family.

      Much better than Andrews
      Michelle said...

      "I was very pleased on how well my house was sold. Simon and Oliver are both very pleasant and helpful, and kept me updated frequently. Would recommend to people on the sale of their house to use Elliot Oliver. They are much better than Andrews who I had to start with and would not recommend."

    • Seller Testimonial

      High quality photographs and particulars
      Martin and Jenny said...

      "Just a quick message to thank you so much for the expeditious manner in which you sold our property so quickly and at the correct price. The high quality photographs and particulars were very professional. Your help in answering the multitude of questions from the eventual purchaser was hugely appreciated, as was your input in negotiating on our new property."

    • Seller Testimonial

      You really did make my property look its very best

      Polly said...

      "I would like to thank you for your very professional way in which you handled every aspect of the sales process, the excellent images and sale details that you posted on the web. You really did make my property look its very best. If at some time in the future I wish to sell again, I will be very happy to come back to Elliot Oliver."

    • Seller Testimonial

      Sold for 100% of asking price on the first evening
      Nick and Carol said...

      "Sold for 100% of asking price on the first evening of viewings. Continued just as painlessly through to completion. Thanks a lot Oliver & team."

    • Seller Testimonial

      Breath of fresh air
      Claire said...

      "Having completed on the sale of our property, all that remains to say is a big 'thank you' for all your help and support along the way. You said you'd sell my property in a matter of weeks and you did, engaging my buyer on the second viewing and then working hard to maintain her interest whilst we waited for the tenants to depart. The way you present and manage your services and the properties entrusted to you is a breath of fresh air and certainly meets the high standards you strongly advocate as being at the heart of the business. Wishing you every success for the future."

      A stress free experience

      Naomi said...

      "Delighted with the service received from Elliot Oliver sales and lettings when we sold our property. A proactive and professional team delivered a stress free experience from initial valuation to completion of sale. Simon is professional, honest and straight talking, ensured we were kept up to date with feedback and was always on hand to offer help and advice. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future."

      No messing, friendly and professional.

      Chris said...

      "I felt I got clear, concise advice without any obligation or pressure to instruct you to act on my behalf. (I make a comparison with larger Estate Agents I met who spent all their time trying to close a deal.) When I requested a follow up letter from the initial appointment I received one the following day. In fact this was the test I set you - however busy you were you managed to get a letter back to me. (Other estate Agents didn't pass this test by not getting back to me in writing. They phoned back many times but no written confirmation of details discussed was received.) This gave me the confidence that you were customer focussed and listened to what I needed to happen. You could also give me your selling agents fee up front. (Other Estate Agents said 'It's negotiable , we can discuss this back at the office)' What! "

      Simon was always available

      Paul said...

      "We were quite unsure as to whether to instruct an agent or handle the sale ourselves. On meeting Simon at Elliot Oliver, we were convinced he would do a good job for us by his open, professional and friendly manner. We'd seen quite a lot of online sales disasters where people bikes and even underwear had been left in the photo's. I was very impressed by the service offered at Elliot Oliver in making my house look at the top of it's game. Simon was always available for any concerns and reliable in getting back to us with information. We never looked back on our decision to use Elliot Oliver and will recommend you and particularly Simon to others."

      Wouldn't hesitate to use Elliot Oliver

      Natalie and Stephen said...

      "Selling your home is an emotional experience and sometimes things don't always go to plan, but no matter what happened Simon was at the end of the phone or email constantly providing the support needed to ensure completion of the sale - even when the rest of us felt like giving up! Choosing who to use to sell your home is a big decision but it won't be for us again, we wouldn't hesitate to use Elliot Oliver to buy, sell or rent a property in the future, in fact when we return to the UK Simon will be the first person we contact."

    • Seller Testimonial

      In just 6 weeks we had a buyer

      Alex and John said...

      "Our flat had been on the market for a good six months but simply wasn't selling. The estate agent we were with was well-known and the general service was good, but they didn't seem able to bring the 'right' people through the door. Switching to Elliot Oliver changed all that. We were thrilled with the personal service that Simon gave us. He was able to understand the types of people our property would appeal to, and - best of all - find them! In just 6 weeks we had a buyer. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Elliot Oliver to anyone hoping to sell!"

    • Seller Testimonial

      I cannot recommend you enough

      Luke said...

      " From start to finish you were brilliant you Came to my home to visit me and value my property at a time to suit me. Simon was punctual and polite and demonstrated a great knowledge of the housing market place. Simon talked me through the process step by step as this was the first time I had sold a house. Photographs were then taken of my property that complimented every angle and aspect of my property which I was impressed with as often you see poor photographs on property adverts. I instructed Elliot Oliver to proceed with the marketing my property and hopefully find a buyer. Within 24 hours from the initial meeting my house was on Elliot Oliver website, Right Move and Zoopla! The next day I had a call to say they had 6 viewings booked in and I was informed of the times they were taking place, the first client they showed around made an offer at the full asking price and I accepted! Simon continued to show potential buyers around until the initial potential buyer had instructed her solicitor and we had exchanged. In total I had over 10 viewings in a short time. I cannot recommend you enough and will Not stop to recommend Simon and Elliot Oliver. Thank you and you will for sure be selling my next house when I decide to move."

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Significantly more helpful
      Mr. and Mrs. Cottam said...

      "We recently purchased a property through Elliot Oliver and found them to be significantly more helpful and communicative than our experience has been with most other estate agents. Email queries were always answered promptly and phone calls always answered informatively. My only minor criticism would be that the floor plan of the property provided was somewhat inaccurate, but that didn't really detract from what was overall a generally satisfying experience in estate agent terms."

    • Buyer Testimonial

      You really have been excellent
      Lucy said...

      "Thanks so much for all of your help over the past few months. You really have been excellent and made the whole thing very easy for a first time buyer! If/when I put the flat back on the market (not for a while yet!!) I will definitely be coming to you!"
    • Buyer Testimonial

      A great manner and genuinely interested in helping

      Phil said...

      "A really good experience. Matching my needs well after I asked you to help me find a property, this saved me a lot of time. Simon offered great advice and clearly knows the market well. He helped the sale move along swiftly prodding me when I needed and even helped out on his own back after another property got down-valued. A great manner and genuinely interested in helping."
