Oakwood Estates of Old Windsor is the largest estate agency in the local area and has a real commitment to assist the local community. A proportion of the yearly office budget is put aside to support local schools, sports teams and businesses. Oakwood Estates sponsor the Old Windsor Tigers FC and do extensive work with Old Windsor schools including; Kings Court First School, St Peters C of E Middle School, Old Windsor Pre School. We are a key pillar within the community and are in the forefront of the property market. Each estate agent is expected to have a strong knowledge of not only the area in which they operate but each individual property on the market. It’s a key part of the role and the Old Windsor team take pride in the standards they uphold. The Old Windsor office has gone from strength to strength which can be measured through its conversion rate and speed by which properties have been sold or rented following instruction.
OLD WINDSOR MANAGER’S VIEWPOINT
My name is Timothy Halls and I am the Lettings Manager at Oakwood Estates and based in the Old Windsor Branch. I have lived in Berkshire for the last 27 Years and have a wealth of experience within the rentals market. I have a B.A Honours degree in marketing which has been useful in identifying new marketing avenues and generating relationships with local blue chip companies for long term corporate lets.
The Oakwood Estates Team is at the forefront of modern technology, allowing us to communicate effectively and comprehensively with our tenants, buyers, landlords and vendors. When I speak to people that have had dealings with other estate agents I find that one of their main gripe is poor communication. However, with our systems and meticulous training our clients can look forward to a solid service with communication taking place through phone, text, email and letter on a daily to weekly basis depending on requirement. Our customers are notified of viewings with email and text messages with vendors and landlords receiving written feedback for every viewing and a weekly report on the agent’s activity which includes the market response and advice on how we can improve the chances of renting or selling their property more quickly.
The area of Old Windsor has a number of benefits which are only noticeable when living or working here. In particular is the kind and happy nature of the local community. Many families and residents tend to stay in Old Windsor for decades which is a credit to the village and the life enjoyed there. We find a lot of people re-buying and re-letting in Old Windsor; being the largest agency in the area with the greatest number of properties makes us the first choice. The location of the Windsor office allows me to interact with the local community but I am also positioned to successfully target surrounding market areas such as Egham, Slough, Windsor, Englefield Green, Ascot and Maidenhead. I am dedicated to making sure that Oakwood Estates maintains its market leadership and in doing so setting an unequalled standard of hard work, determination and last, but not least, high quality customer service.
