    Nicola Halfpenny- Lettings Area Manager
    I have recently joined College and County as Area Lettings Manager for both the Oxford office and Buckingham office, namely Open Doors. With over 10 years' experience in the lettings industry, I am looking forward to continuing building successful relationships with all our landlords and being a part of a professional and highly respected agency.

    I am a committed team player and take pride in providing the best quality service to all our clients, their properties and our tenants. In my spare time I enjoy horse riding, with my horse May and attending competitions.

    Lizzie Brand- Lettings Negotiator
    I have been in the property industry for nearly three years specialising in both lettings and property management. I have recently joined the team here at Open Doors and am excited to work alongside Nicola matching tenants to our properties and securing lets for our landlords. 

    In my spare time I enjoy cycling and will be embarking on a 300 mile ride to Paris this July!

    Mark Crampton Smith- Director
    Tea boy and occasional odd job person... Trouble shooter and property sleuth. Taking ownership of Open Doors, an agency that shares the same ethos as our other agency College and County in Oxford, is an exciting challenge. I share my time between both Oxford and Buckingham and I am confident that the staff team can both maintain and improve the services to clients and tenants alike. Through our adherence to ethical letting, we hope to attract more excellent landlords who with strong advice, will continue to invest in their portfolio.

    I enjoy game fishing and working my dog and I am also developing my understanding of the local market trends and shifts. If you would like to share your perspective on any of these, perhaps we could meet up for refreshment?

    David Gilson- Lettings Director
    In 2007 I was studying a RICS degree at Oxford Brookes University specialising in sustainable development and became a College and County tenant. I have always had a real interest in properties and in particular, property investment. Right from the start I could see what a great culture and ethos Mark had created with College and County and in late 2007, I started my journey with C&C and became a viewing agent working part time around my studies.

    Some 10+ years on I am now Lettings Director for both College and County and Open Doors. My goal every day is to ensure that whilst we stay at the cutting edge of the market with new technologies and grow as an agency and team the same care and personal approach that Mark gave when I started is always taken with every Landlord and Tenant to ensure what makes Open Doors great always remains.

    Nicky Tchertoff - Property Manager
    I have been working in the property industry now for 12 years and throughout my journey I have learnt so much along the way. I have always enjoyed the property management side; building up relationships with tenants and landlords and ensuring the properties are well looked after. I really enjoy seeing all the properties and in Buckinghamshire we have some great villages with lovely character properties. 

     I have recently moved to Milton Keynes which I am still working my way around as there are a lot of roundabouts! I am looking forward to working at Open Doors with a fresh team to ensure all your property needs are met. In my spare time I enjoy glamping in my VW camper van called Jingles and seeing all the sights along the way.

    • Introduction

      Below are some 5 star reviews posted on Google showing the level of service the staff at Open Doors endeavour to provide to both Landlords and Tenants.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      I have let my Buckingham property through Open Doors since 2004, and have received exemplary service, often over and above that outlined in the agreement. The property has always been re-let with minimal time delays, and I have been kept informed all the while. May I just mention Ms Stephanie Bulger in particular, who has handled the ongoing renovation of the property impeccably, but broadly all the staff have provided excellent service. I would recommend Open Doors to anyone. Martin Harrison
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Efficient friendly service with excellent communication throughout the works required between tenancies.  In particular Courtney could not have done more to assist and coordinate the various contractors.  Very happy with the service received from Open Doors over the last 12 years or so years and would have no hesitation recommending.
      HB March 2018
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I've been with Open Doors for 3 years now and recent experience of change over of tenants has been extremely positive, and went very smoothly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Open Doors if you have a property to let in Buckingham.

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      "Relocating from Yorkshire to Buckinghamshire and trying to find a property to rent, with a dog, was not proving easy but Open Doors Agents made the process much better. Open Doors put me in touch with a company to find the best utility deals and were always happy to help. I would highly recommend Open Doors for efficiency and positive outlook." Kate Oakley
    • Tenant Testimonial

      We worked with Open Doors to find a home in Buckingham. Open Doors were a lot more approachable and accommodating than other letting agents in Buckingham. They were easy to get a hold of, always responded to emails promptly, and gave full attention regardless of status as a student. We would 100% work with Open Doors again in the future. Marrison Stranks
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I can't recommend Open Doors enough. I'm a tenant in one of their rental properties near Bicester and they have been incredibly helpful. My husband and I were moving with jobs so we didn't have the conventional employment details for the rental paperwork but they were amazing at helping with what we could do.  

      Then on moving day, our removal van was held up.  A member of the team stayed over an hour late to make sure we could still get the keys that evening! It you are a tenant looking for properties or a landlord looking to let yours, my experience of their professionalism and customer service has been totally wonderful.
