Who we are and why we're different

Estate agents specialising in high quality homes

To buy and to let in key locations throughout Oxford, Witney and the surrounding villages. We pride ourselves on being experts in our field, providing an innovative service and transparent advice to our clients.

We don’t use call centres. Our sales and lettings offices are based in Headington, East Oxford, Summertown and Witney, with a separate head office in Oxford comprising property management and buy-to-let services. This gives us the real advantage that all of our teams thoroughly understand the local area and property market.

Our success and continued growth comes from attention to detail, a high quality portfolio of properties and, most importantly, referrals from satisfied customers.

The leadership team

A wealth of property experience at your service

Scottfraser impact pledge

At scottfraser we like to do things differently to other estate agents, and building better links in the local community has always been important to us, especially as we have always taken great pride in being an Oxfordshire-only agency.

Reciprocate has set out to promote corporate awareness and involvement in Oxfordshire charities, and as founder members scottfraser have committed to embracing this initiative by pledging one day’s paid leave for every member of the scottfraser team to work in a local charity of their choice. We understand that not all of our team will be able to take part so we have decided to pledge the days promised (60) to those that feel passionate about participating to make a difference in their local community.
