Search our site — we upload new properties within 24 hours of instruction. We’ll send you regular updates with properties that meet your needs, and you’ll be the first to hear of any properties before they come to market.


We’ll keep things flexible for you. We’ll work around your schedule to make sure viewings are convenient, and we’ll be there with you to answer every question on the way.

Once you’re ready to make your offer, we’ll ask for proof of address and identification, the details of your solicitor and mortgage — if you have them. We know every situation is unique, so we’ll work with you to get this offer heard.


If your offer is accepted, we’ll provide a Memorandum of Sale and confirm the price and specific requirements with both yourself and the seller. In addition, you’ll need to share the details of your solicitor and mortgage — we can recommend good local choices if you need them — as well as identification for anti-money-laundering (AML) regulations.

Your solicitors will now question anything they see in the draft contract, begin local searches for your property in Buckingham, Oxford, or Thame, and confirm the date of exchange with you. We’ll be right there to help smooth the process.

Survey and Mortgage Offer

Your mortgage lender will organise a survey and share their valuation. After this, they’ll send a mortgage offer to you and your solicitor.

Exchange Contracts

Once you have agreed on the mortgage and contracts, you can exchange. A deposit will be sent to the seller’s solicitors, and you can agree on the completion date.


This is when the remaining amount of money is transferred from your solicitor to the seller’s solicitor. We’ll be there, in constant communication with you and your solicitor, ready to let you know when the property is yours.

We can bring you the keys, or you can simply pick them up from your local office — and get ready to move.
