    Our Brighton & Hove City centre offices have large window frontages and are positioned in the heart of the North Laine conservation area, ideally placed for Brighton Station. We are uniquely positioned for commuters, the London market & overseas purchasers in addition to our local residents.

    Having opened the North Road office in 2006 our residential department has expanded and now incorporates 2 shop fronts including residential sales, lettings and new homes. The office location was strategically chosen to enable us to sell across the city in all the BN1, BN2 and BN3 postcodes.

    We are also involved with the sale of properties outside of these core areas, particularly in conjunction with our Lewes Town & Country and London offices. The very close proximity to our commercial agency head office in Marlborough Place enables us to cross sell mixed use properties and target many residential investment, buy to let landlords, portfolio owners and investor groups.

    At Oakley we pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service and the correct advice to property owners, assisting them in making the right decisions with their property. We are very aware that all property remains an investment but often needs a personal touch and an understanding of the individual property, the target audience to which it will appeal and how to reach and inspire those purchasers.

    We advise on numerous aspects of selling including; marketing strategy, pricing, presentation, building/redecoration works that could enhance value or saleability and often this can be over a number of years until the time is right for the client to sell. Our client's best interests are always considered, it may even be that the correct advice is to retain a property or rent it for a period, depending on circumstances & property market conditions.

    The Residential Director James Epps has been with Oakley for over 10 years and is a former President of the Brighton & Hove Estate Agents Association (BHEAA) and he brings both professionalism and business ethics which are our values at Oakley.
