We have used a lot of Hertfordshire estate agents but Steven Oates were by far the most organised, helpful and supportive. Lisa was very friendly, professional, always responsive and kept things moving on both sides when needed. She helped us with all our questions and we felt full confidence in the sale from start to finish with her help. We'd happily recommend to anyone buying or selling in the area.

They manage our apartment for us which enables us to get on with our lives unless there is an issue and then we have the email trail to deal with which can take longer than necessary.

We recently sold our family home through Steven Oates and they were fantastic to deal with from start to finish. Steve's valuation was spot on; he had the house on the market in days, and several offers on the table two weeks later. We completed three and a half weeks from accepting an offer - a record I believe! The team were exceptionally helpful and supportive. Thank you Steve, lovely Lisa, two Jacks, Sam and everyone at Steven Oates.

Couldn’t have asked for anything more for an estate agents. Lisa & Jack were amazing, they helped find us a new buyer within a very short timescale, kept us updated, were quick to respond to any emails and we knew they were always there if we needed anything.

Thank you for helping us move into our family home. If you need an estate agents, don’t look anywhere else! Highly recommended.

We have been really impressed by Steven Oates's service as we recently sold our property. The relaxed and friendly attitude of the staff should not distract from the efficient and professional service we received. From our first contact and valuation with Steve, to our ongoing communication with Jack (one of them, although I'm sure the other was fab too), to our final detailing and support from Lisa, the whole team worked seamlessly and speedily throughout. We have no hesitation in recommending them. Many thanks to all the team ☺

I had such a great experience with Lisa from Steven Oates. She made the house buying process so easy, especially when it seemed to take ages for solicitors to talk to one another I knew I could always go to her and would get a sensible and helpful answer straight away. In a few years when I sell I will defo use Steven Oates again after this experience.

We sold our house with Steven Oates earlier this year. Sam has been fantastic from finding us finding a buyer and then managing through a few bumps to completion. He was always available and quick to respond, in his absence, the team knew the account and were able to help. Can't recommend them enough.

Sam, Lisa and Jack at Steven Oates were simply excellent at marketing and selling our property. They were always available and kept us fully informed at every step during the process and helped take much of the stress out of moving home. Brilliant professional service.

Matthew Bendell

We put our house up with Steven Oats in October 2020 and in less than a week Lisa and Sam (Hertford branch) had a buyer for us. The rest of the sale went through equally easily and quickly. Lisa and Sam were always extremely professional and responsive and they had unending patience with me anxiously waiting for the sale to complete.

We saw other agents in Hertford who significantly undervalued our property. Looking back at the whole moving process, picking Steven Oats was a fantastic decision and one that has enabled me to type this from our lovely new home.
Lucy Ladbrook
★★★★★
The team at Stephen Oates did a fantastic job helping us secure our first home. Lisa in particular made sure we understood what was going on at all times, and facilitated conversation between everyone involved. Their hard work definitely made the process go as smoothly as possible, and I'd recommend them to anyone.

During most of 2020 I had the unpleasant situation of trying to sell my father's house in Hertford after he passed away with Cancer. I live outside of Great Britain so as you can imagine this wasn't easy... Not only were Steven Oats Estate Agents on hand every step of the way, but their compassion, professionalism and attention to detail were unbelievable. The full asking price was met within a week of it being advertised (May 2020) and the whole process was as stress free as anyone could ever ask for especially at such a difficult time. Lisa Purdy deserves a special mention for being there every step of the way and I can't recommend this business and it's staff more highly.. Thanks again Steven Oats for such a perfect special service. Anton Gray

If Carlsberg made estate agents...

I was absolutely delighted with the service we received from the team at Steven Oates. From the very start they were highly responsive and engaging and made the complex and stressful process of selling and buying a house very straight forward. I could not recommend their team any higher.

I must leave a special thanks for Lisa, she was incredible throughout the process and would always go the extra mile for you no matter what, she even helped us post completion.

Lisa came and did a valuation on my house. She was punctual, very friendly and professional. She emailed my valuation across on the same day. It was a divorce settlement valuation not for selling my house, but Lisa gave me the same professional service. She also called me to ask how everything was going ! I would definitely recommend these Estate Agents. If I called and left message, the message got passed across and a call would be returned the same day. Thank you very much Lisa, you made a stressful situation calm !

Recently had the pleasure of dealing with Lisa at Steven Oates. She sold us our first home, which will also be the home we raise our children in.
Everything went really smoothly and, most impoartantly, Lisa kept all communication flowing freely and all (minor) disputes were resovled without any issue. Highly recommend Steven Oates (especially if Lisa deals with you!)

An absolutely superb service. We both bought and sold a house through Steven Oates and despite some fairly complicated problems due to a burst pipe at one of the properties, the process was guided very expertly to completion. We dealt mainly with Ginny Oliver who was exceptional. She is very calm and professional and a genuine delight to do business with.

Ginny Oliver at Steven Oates in Hertford is excellent. We bought and sold our house with Steven Oates and we were very impressed with Ginny.

Ginny is exceptionally organised, kept in regular contact, continually chased solicitors throughout the chain to keep things moving and enabled us to exchange and complete within tight timescales. Ginny kept us reassured throughout and we would highly recommend her!

Excellent agency, great staff and very helpful. After having sold and purchased properties in the past with many different agencies, these guys certainly go above and beyond and you can definitely see the difference when dealing with them. Also special mention to Ryan Leber the branch manager who really helped to find the my perfect place and when the buyer of the house I was selling pulled out at the last minute he was also able to find a new buyer very quickly with the same terms!
Carmelo Severino
★★★★★
We have just completed the sale of a property via the Steven Oates Ware office. From our first contact with Ryan Leber we were impressed with both his friendliness and professionalism. Through the whole transaction communication has been excellent. Any query was followed immediately and his liaison with the buyers and our solicitor could not be faulted. Ryan and his very pro active team always took the time to follow up any action to ensure we were satisfied with the outcome. Not only was their service great, the marketing of our property was fantastic which led to us selling at a price we were very happy with. We would certainly recommend Steven Oates in Ware to any potential seller and buyer.

Working with Jack Ruby has restored by faith in estate agents! Buying the house of my dreams was supposed to be a smooth and quick process. Unfortunately, there were a number of hiccups along the way yet Jack remained calm, professional and patient with me and I'm sure it was these attributes that kept the Vendor confident the house sale would eventually reach completion. Jack's communication was excellent throughout and I can't rate him highly enough - thank you Jack!

Thank you to Stephen and all the guys at Steven Oates, we visited a few Estate Agents in Hertford before deciding which one to use for the sale of our flat, the expertise and professionalism are second to none, they communicate well, keep you up to date without having to chase them. Would definitely use this company again and highly recommend them. Although we had a few problems our end which could have jeopardised the sale they kept all parties well informed and aided in a smooth transaction.

I don't usually do reviews but after selling a property and buying another one through Steven Oates, I really can't praise them highly enough in handling both transactions. In particular, I must commend Mark Pesci of their Hertford Office, who was efficient, polite, knowledgeable and attentive, and due to his experience both properties proceeded without a hitch. He even managed a particularly inept solicitor who was jeopardising my sale. Thank you Steven Oates!

Mark Pesci is one of the very best estate agents I have met. Though our purchase could sadly not be completed he was consistently informative, caring and honest. I would not hesitate to buy or sell through Steven Oates.

Sam Andrews has changed the stereotypical view of individuals in this industry. He is a true credit to Steven Oates. Always on time, professional, with a smile and a solution rather than a problem, he has made my life as a landlord child's play. He listens and takes on board my preferences (me being particularly fussy makes this not an easy task!) and has consistently sourced the best tenants for me. He is a genuine pleasure to work with.

I have used this business for many years now and their service is excellent. If any issues regarding the property occur they deal with them straight away which means I don't have any hassle with the tenants. They seem to have an expert on all matters which gives me great peace of mind. Highly recommended.

A couple of months ago we completed a house move that had several challenging issues over a stressful 10 months. Early on Jack Wall at Steven Oates far surpassed the level of service we anticipated, and this was maintained throughout. Jack worked tirelessly, often getting involved on days off and going well beyond what we expected, chasing and at times managing the chain below. We were regularly updated in an efficient and professional manner.
On the odd occasion that Jack was absent the service levels were maintained through Lisa Purdy and Sam Dennison.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them for your house transaction.
