Client Testimonials

Rosemary Hall
I had a great experience selling my house with Chamberlain Evans. I had been unsure about putting it on the market at first and they were patient and never pushy. When I decided to go ahead, they gave me an excellent rate and got me the sale price I wanted. They know the area inside and out and I came to really value their advice on my next purchase as well as my sale. The whole process was friendly, fair, and efficient – a breath of fresh air! I strongly recommend Chamberlain Evans and will definitely be returning in future.

Kirsty Warren
Great experience selling my house through Chamberlain Evans. I was pretty clear that I wasn’t sure that I really wanted to sell when I first started conversations, and I really appreciated to chance to talk to someone openly about the process and price with no pressure or hounding afterwards to get my place on the market (as other estate agents did). When I was ready to press go, things got underway very quickly which was great. Richard was always helpful, approachable, professional and his knowledge of the local area is second to none. Extremely happy with the service and had I not left Oxford, would use them again!

Ben Davies
Everything ran perfectly with Chamberlain & Evans and I would thoroughly recommend their services. Both Richards were hugely helpful, providing expert and dependable advice during the sale and negotiations, and also in their work behind the scenes to help speed along the conveyancing process. Really impressive work, and at a very fair price.

Will Bird
I recently sold my property in East Oxford through Chamberlain Evans and can thoroughly recommend their services. Both Richards are very friendly and professional and viewings were organised efficiently. Communication was great throughout the whole process and they achieved a sale price I am very happy with. Thanks both!

Will Harris

I have just sold our flat in East Oxford using Chamberlain Evans. Richard and Richard have both been an absolute pleasure to work with and I’m so grateful for their efforts. There is such a difference working with a smaller, independent estate agent knowing you can speak to them at any time. They are patient, kind and professional. I would recommend Chamberlain Evans to anyone.

Rosemary Burton
I am very pleased with the professional and friendly service provided by Richard Chamberlain and Richard Evans. They sold my house within a month, achieved a price in excess of the asking price and charged less than other comparable agents. It was very nice to be able to pick up the phone and speak to one of the two directors, rather than to a large impersonal agency with a massive staff. I cannot fault their service and recommend them highly.

Sarah Montagu
The service I had from Chamberlain Evans was professional, supportive and friendly throughout the whole process. Both Richards were approachable, gave good advice without being pushy, and their knowledge of local buyers and of the market was very useful. Very happy to recommend

Mark Hooper
Highly Recommended, we sold 2 houses through Chamberlain Evans in 2022. As well as finding buyers, they really added value to the buying process. Leading to successful sales in a difficult market period

Rachel Lawrence
We were delighted with the service we received from Chamberlain Evans, from start to finish. We choose them to sell our house as their experience and knowledge of the local area and market stood out amongst the competition. They were extremely professional and helpful throughout the process, making time to discuss issues relating to our sale and purchase of our new home. The Richards have been a delight to deal with and we would highly recommend them.

Adam Grieve
House moves are often very stressful, and it was in our case, as it was anything but straightforward. We were helped hugely by Richard Evans and Richard Chamberlain, who were absolute rocks of support throughout. Both provided us with great advice with the sale of our house, as well as honest views on aspects of our onward purchase. What we particularly liked about Chamberlain Evans was that they were no drama/pressure – they were calm, pragmatic, fair to all parties, and incredibly responsive. These agents also know the area inside-out. A rare find in estate agency, in our experience. We recommend them with no hesitation. Adam and Francesca.

Peter Hathaway
We highly recommend Chamberlain Evans estate agents!

Their work provided great value for money. With their help, we were able to sell our home promptly, with relative ease and at a price we were very happy with.

They provided us with hassle-free, no-obligation valuations of our family home in Donnington on two separate occasions – the first in the winter of 2019 (when we were merely musing on the possibility of selling) and then again in the summer of 2021 when we had decided that we did indeed want to sell. On both occasions we never felt pressured into making a decision or following-up on their valuation.

In all of our interactions, both Richard Chamberlain & Richard Evans were a pleasure to work with. Their manner was always friendly, personable and supportive and they were never pushy, which put us well at ease. They displayed great local knowledge and offered sound advice whenever we needed it. They were very professional at all times whilst remaining totally approachable. Of all the different parties we dealt with during the sale of our home, we felt Chamberlain Evans stood out from the pack. They provided excellent service and we had the sense that they were genuinely on our side and cared about our intentions.

The web description, brochure and report that they prepared were all first-class and our house received great exposure and attracted a lot of interest from the first day. They managed all house viewings throughout and these were arranged at convenient times to suit us. I believe we had agreed a sale in less than 2 weeks!

The whole process of our moving house lasted around 6 months due to complications concerning our home purchase overseas and so was out of their control, however, Chamberlain Evans continued to offer advice and support throughout this period, as well as managing all communications with our buyer during this period to keep them informed and on board with the purchase.

We highly recommend contacting Chamberlain Evans, whether you are serious about selling your house – or merely musing about the possibilities!

Colin Hazell
I am happy to say that the experience of selling my late mother’s house went very smoothly and with the minimum of fuss, thanks to the expertise and knowledge of Chamberlain Evans. All the staff I spoke to throughout the process were polite and friendly and pleased to help. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other potential customers. Many thanks.

Kieran O’Connor
From start to finish Chamberlain and Evans were extremely helpful and dedicated to the sale of our home.

At every stage they went the extra mile to ensure the sale went through stress free and smoothly.

We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

Tony B
I have just completed a sale of my mother’s house in Stockmore Street Oxford. Chamberlain Evans were highly recommended by my solicitor and I duly contacted them,. from start to completion I found them to be very professional and very easy to work with, the communication was sublime and they made the sale of the property very easy going. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Chamberlain Evans at all.

Chris G
We recently sold our house through Chamberlain Evans and had great service at every stage. Our property took a while to sell but Richard & Richard were patient and tireless in marketing and showing it. We never felt under any pressure to sell at a lower price or to hurry things along in any way, and I always felt that out agents had our best interests at heart.

I would definitely use Chamberlain Evans again in future and would have no hesitation in recommending them very highly to anyone else looking to sell or buy in Oxford.

Jack Boco
We could not be more happy with Chamberlain Evans. Thank you so much. From start to finish they have been highly professional, with a personal touch. Selling a home is a major life decision, and those helping us have the potential to greatly add to or greatly relieve our stress. Chamberlain Evans are very ‘safe hands’, and they have been tireless in helping us throughout the whole process of selling a home. Unlike so many other estate agents, they are always available (they answer their phones!), willing to go the extra mile, and genuinely concerned about our sale. This is the second time we have sold a home with Chamberlain Evans, and it will not be the last. They are, hands down, the best estate agent in Oxford.

Rachel Freeman
After dealing with two previous agents in Oxford over an 18-month period, working with Chamberlain Evans was like a breath of fresh air. Not only are both Richards very friendly and personable, but they have been extremely transparent and consistently helpful with every step of our house sale (even offering advice in areas that don’t necessarily benefit them directly).

A great team that I would definitely recommend to anyone – they have restored our faith in Estate Agents! So if you are looking to sell, these guys are the go to agents in Oxford. The only complication is they are both called Richard

John Barker
I only have good words to say about Chamberlain Evans. My brother had recently passed away and sadly we had to sell his house. Richard Chamberlain and Richard Evans have both been sympathetic and professional from start to finish! From their knowledge of the local market to their personal service you couldn’t ask for more from your agent. They kept me fully informed throughout the sale and gave support and helpful advice when needed. I would definitely recommend Chamberlain Evans to anyone; they are unlike the national estate agents that operate in Oxford with sales teams continually calling to get the sale of your property on their books!!

Al Chisholm
Chamberlain Evans did a great job of selling our house and helping us buy our next one despite challenging times in the housing market. They were enthusiastic about our house and always responsive, competent, committed and friendly. We were confident throughout that our sale and purchase were in good hands.

Pinkesh Patel
I would not hesitate to recommend Chamberlain Evans who exceeded our expectations by selling our house in 10 days and for a price which exceeded our expectations. Richard Evans and Richard Chamberlain are very knowledgeable of the local market, always available no matter what time of day, they proactively kept me informed throughout the process and most of all the advice they provided was so valuable. Although, they were only engaged to sell our house, they went over and above by also advising us during the process of purchasing our new house when it hit some complications which was listed with another agent.

Richard Colbrook
We sold our house very quickly with the help of Chamberlain Evans in 2015 and for a price which exceeded our expectations. They were superb in every way – excellent value for money, years and years of experience (which made a huge difference), always kept us informed, showed every interested person around the house to help further the sale and even correctly predicted the type of person who would buy our house. We had 6 different estate agents around to value the house and tell us the service they could offer. Chamberlain Evans were streets ahead of the rest, the best value and the 30+ years of experience that Richard Chamberlain and Richard Evans have between them really showed. We could not recommend them highly enough.

Simon Quinn
We recently used Chamberlain Evans for our sale. They were excellent throughout the process: very responsive, very patient, very professional, and extremely friendly from start to finish. Very happy to recommend!

Laura Beeston
Richard Evans was very helpful to our family throughout the sale of a house in Oxford. He helped to maintain smooth communication between buyer, seller and solicitors. He responded promptly to calls and emails. Overall, a very good choice of estate agent.

M Chew
I listed a property with Chamberlain Evans in 2014 after comparing the services offered by 3-4 of the more established estate agents in Oxford. Chamberlain Evans offered the best rate and were by far the most consistently professional, personable, responsive and honest. For personal reasons I ended up deciding not to sell, but I also viewed numerous properties with practically all the estate agents in Oxford – and I can highly recommend Chamberlain Evans as my top choice. In an industry typically characterised by endless, pushy patter from young men (and women) with little experience looking for a quick sale, Richard Evans was refreshingly knowledgeable, experienced, down-to-earth, trustworthy, helpful and genuine. A couple sets of friends who have sold/purchased their properties with them also echo my positive experiences and verdict. If I were looking to sell or buy again, I would definitely approach Chamberlain Evans first.

David Rivers
Chamberlain Evans have just sold my mothers retirement flat in Oxford, and we were very pleased with the service they provided. I believe that their unique knowledge of these particular flats and of the market in general were key to getting a speedy sale concluded.

Richard R
Both Richards were excellent from start to finish with a potentially tricky sale in a difficult market. Every piece of advice they gave turned out to be correct, and every step of the way they negotiated through the sale flawlessly. Their years of experience and extensive knowledge of the local market were always in evidence, and their very reasonable fee was an added attraction. I particularly appreciated their straightforwardness and openness in discussing and advising at every stage of the process. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Chamberlain Evans again and thoroughly recommend them for anyone entering the property market in Oxford. I have 35 years of experience of this market, 20 of them in a professional capacity, and I can state that they are without doubt among the very best I’ve encountered in that time.

Marike Schiffer
If you have a property to sell or are looking to buy in Oxford, I cannot recommend working with Chamberlain-Evans enough. You can save yourself an extraordinary amount of pain by avoiding some of the bigger agencies that will have you suffer gobsmacking levels of negligence and incompetence, and instead simply working with Richard C and Richard E. They sold our Rose Hill property for us, at all times with our best interests at heart, offering additional services ad hoc, responsive to enquiries, giving sound and considerate advice even in matters only tangentially related to the sale, dealing courteously and professionally with recalcitrant tenants, communicating frustrations caused by matters outside anyone’s control matter-of-factly, plainspeaking and honest about our prospects.

John Young
Bought off Chamberlain Evans in 2013 as was throughy impressed from the buying side and decided to use them to sell in 2021. from a prompt valuation, through to good photography, good communications and management of buyers expectations of timescales I found richard and richard were great. Many thanks for helping with a successful sale.

Stuart and Joanna Ramsay
Chamberlain Evans provided a friendly, responsive and approachable service when we were selling our house, right from the initial valuation through to completion. Both Richards are very experienced and were able helpfully to guide us through the complexities of the process, to a very satisfactory outcome. We would recommend them very highly.

Heather Benn
I can’t rate Chamberlain Evans highly enough. Unlike other estate agents, with Chamberlain Evans you are working with experienced professionals who you can trust at all stages – from valuation to completion. Your home is being shown by someone who is professional and knowledgeable. And Richard and Richard provide invaluable advice. Chamberlain Evans sold our house, at target price quickly and efficiently. We felt informed at all stages and completely trusted them. Highly recommended

Steve Lowe
I placed my house on the market with Chamberlain Evans, after having evaluations with another 4 to 5 agents based in Oxford, some of which I felt were just in it to get your money. CE gave the best fee overall and I feel the best personal and professional service and obtained a very good selling price too, given the market. I also felt communications was excellent throughout and when it came to negotiations felt Richard was very good by giving advice too. If I were to sell again I would use CE again. Many Thanks for all you did.

L Peers
During our house sale, Chamberlain Evans gave solid advice from start to finish, communicated brilliantly, and explained the process to us every step of the way from first consultation through exchange. We felt they had our backs and it was hugely reassuring to have them on side. We have already recommended them to friends.

Graham Moon
Nothing but praise for the help and advice given by Chamberlain Evans to us – as first time sellers – resulting in a good sale at a good price. Richard Chamberlain or Richard Evans personally handled all viewings and we were kept informed of progress and feedback from them all. I don’t think that such a knowledgeable and personal service could be bettered by any other local agents, nor could their fees ! I recommend Chamberlain Evans with no hesitation whatsoever.

Lucia Simon
Chamberlain and Evans were superb throughout the whole process of my house sale. Their local knowledge of the area is second to none, and was a definite advantage in securing a purchase. They were also able to lend their considerable knowledge to my ongoing purchase, which was very helpful. I’d highly recommend them.

Ben Copley
I am a Landlord and Property Developer and over the years have not found a better Estate Agency than Chamberlain Evans. They have sold several properties on my behalf and I have always been delighted by their results. Some of these sales were achieved in very tough market conditions and I witnessed their extreme hard work and superb negotiation skills to get me the best possible price. I would not trust any other agent to act on my behalf in Oxford!

Simon Quinn
We recently used Chamberlain Evans for our sale. They were excellent throughout the process: very responsive, very patient, very professional, and extremely friendly from start to finish. Very happy to recommend!

Janey Burr
Really great service. Our house was sold for the value that Richard C estimated and both Richards made the process as smooth as possible. Great communication and very personable service. If only they offered conveyancing too!

Colin Beesley
These agents are not like the other agents where they just want your money. These ones treat you professionally and personally. Setting the right price and getting the best price and I should know as I have used them 3 times and would use them again. I even recommended them to a friend and they were over the moon as they even got the asking price! They always go the extra mile and will not just listen but also give advice. Yes they do treat the buyer the same as the seller which is very important because if the buyer is happy then the seller is even happier. It’s not often I will write a review but Chamberlain Evans deserve top recommendation.

Ben Garbutt
Offered an expert, friendly, and very professional service. House buying always gets fraught. You need someone on your side who knows when to stick and when to twist. Chamberlain Evans do this! They are calm, diligent, and conscientious. And if we’re talking bottom line, I can honestly say that that the level of the personal service they offered saved us a lot of money.

Helen Evans
First class service. Professional and responsive. We had two offers within one week. Couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome With many thanks to the two Richards who run Chamberlain Evans.

Rob Miles
Richard and Richard were excellent throughout. They provided helpful advice and were always clear in their communications. We trusted and valued their judgement and found them to be a pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Jack Dunger
I was very impressed by Chamberlain Evans when I used them for the sale of my flat. They were knowledgeable, professional, quick and communicative. Highly recommended.

Matt Bateman
Great service from both of the Richard’s. Their advice has been invaluable in what has been difficult market. They have taken the time to explain things have always done viewings themselves and been knowledgeable on both what buyers are looking for as well as being realistic on what the market his doing.

Mark Williams
Very helpful, very professional, gave us a free upgrade to ‘featured property’ on Rightmove. Got us a price that other estate agents suggested we list at and accept less! Also gave us a good deal on their fee.

James Hamlyn
We purchased a property through Chamberlain Evans and were really impressed with their service throughout the purchase process. Would highly recommend them.

Nicky Leach
Have just completed in these difficult times. I cant thank the Richards enough. Nothing was ever too much trouble, we were made to feel we were the only clients i just wish they had their own inhouse conveyancing as ours were rubbish and i would guarantee they would be good and efficient at it.

Robert Ross
A good experience all round. Richard gave us a realistic but ambitious valuation ( unlike some national firms with Oxford offices) and quickly arranged a large number of viewings. All through the process he and his team were responsive to calls, always coming back quickly in addition to regular updates. Once an offer was accepted he continued to drive the process to completion. Highly recommended.

Celia Clothier
Excellent personal service, really know their area , the market. Very straightforward. Look no further. Would use them again in a heartbeat.

Jennifer Gadd
Sold our property quickly, and were very professional and friendly. We would recommend them highly.

Tom
Excellent, they were very speedy, professional and reasonably priced. They offered really good opinion throughout the process from listing to sale and it always worked out as good advice. I would thoroughly recommend.

Mark Lynas
Chamberlain-Evans were excellent all the way through – great personal service, extremely good rates, and support on even the smallest of queries.

Ben Sherwood
Fantastic service and advice from this place. Even their competitors recommend them due to their unblemished record on service and ethics.

Helen Harrington
All round great service we would recommend this agency.

Nick Cross
Really good experience always nice to get the same person answer the phone and no whats happening with your sale cant thank you all enough

Faris Kozmi
Simply the very best in town, period ! Cheers RC & RE

Andrew Molden
Very good, Richard and Richard very helpful.

Adrian Willett
Having worked in property for 40 years, and bought and sold some 40 houses, (and even once worked in Estate Agency!), I hope I am fairly well qualified to pick the best Agent for the job.

The two Richards at C and E are hugely knowledgeable, seriously professional, and yet not remotely pretentious! They were so much more effective than well-meaning but inexperienced competitors. Their advice on the sale of my house in Magdalen Rd proved to be spot on, and the cautions they voiced correct! Communication was always clear, with options and suggestions when possible. In the end their experience carried my sale through and in this years unpredictable soft market, those skills were paramount. This is only the 4th review of any kind I have ever written, but in my view, they deserve my effort.

Thanks Richard and Richard!
