Welcome to Bonds Estate Agents

Established in 2017, Bonds Estate Agents is an independent, new and exciting hybrid estate agent that bridges the gap between your expensive high-street agent and the 'not so personal' online agent.

We provide a comprehensive service for both sales and lettings within Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

Our tailor-made service combines the traditional processes of an Estate Agent, with the modern methods of marketing without the expensive fee or upfront costs.

Our Values

We pride ourselves on delivering accurate advice through an honest approach to ultimately build trust with our clients and customers.

Our Aim

  • To transform the stigma of your 'typical' estate agent through demonstrating a very hands on approach and by building solid relationships built on trust.
  • To provide a modern quality service that bridges the gap between your expensive high-street agent and the 'not so local' nationwide online agent.

Myself and the team would be delighted to offer advice or welcome the opportunity to meet face to face to discuss your property requirements - the coffee is on us!

We look forward to working with you soon.

Kind Regards,

Managing Director

I was born and raised in Henley, educated at Valley Road Primary and Gillotts secondary school. I played football at Henley Boys football club at which my grandfather Ken Downing founded and my grandparents previously ran Thamesfield luxury retirement home. Launching my business in an area I know so well, has always been a long-term desire. I feel extremely proud to be able to base my business out of Henley-On-Thames, one of the most desirable locations within the Thames Valley. As well as launching my own business, I'm currently playing for the Henley Hawks, a keen cyclist amongst the Chilterns and like spending time with 'Lola' the working cocker spaniel, also known as the Bonds office dog. I would be delighted to offer advice or welcome the opportunity to meet face to face to discuss your property requirements - the coffee is on me!

Senior Property Negotiator

I started my career in Residential sales in 2014 working as a negotiator for a large National firm in the Berkshire area. Having joined Bonds in June 2018 I am keen to be living and working locally. I grew up in Oxfordshire and I have lived in Henley with my family for the last 5 years, and have very much enjoyed becoming part of the local community. I have a passion for property and a keen interest in design, which stems from my time studying Landscape Architecture at Kingston University. In my spare time I enjoy river walks, photography and cooking for friends and family.

Bonds is an agent who is truly embracing modern marketing and becoming a change-maker in the property industry here in Henley, I couldn't resist a seat at the table! I'm a health and wellness advocate, qualified PT and nutritionist, ambassador for the local women's business network, wife, step-mum and love to turn inspirational ideas into creative solutions that make people's lives and business better.

Property Negotiator / Inventory Clerk

I moved to South Oxfordshire in the year 2000, primarily to bring up my children in the beautiful surroundings of the Chiltern Hills. I feel privileged that they were educated at such excellent locals schools. Having worked at Henley Golf Club and a few country pubs I feel very much part of the local community. Three years ago I re-trained as an Inventory Clerk to utilise my keen eye for detail - a job which I thoroughly enjoy. In my spare time I love to catch up with my friends and plan my next travels.

Property Administrator

Having spent the past three years studying Creative Writing in Bath, I uncovered a love for natural and architectural beauty. Only now has it become clear the extent to which Henley serves these in abundance and I am excited to explore my home-town in South Oxfordshire with fresh eyes, alongside my colleagues at Bonds. During the weekends, I enjoy ice skating, trying new restaurants and keeping up with my writing - both young-adult fiction and children's literature.

The office dog

Lola enjoys long countryside walks, pampering at the local dog parlour and cosy nights in front of the fire. Lola has been part of the Bonds team since day one, when it was just one man and his dog but now enjoys the odd day in the office lapping up the fuss from the rest of the team!

Our Partnerships and Community Support

Sue Ryder

We are honoured to support Sue Ryder - Nettlebed Hospice by making a donation of £100 for every let agreed and £200 for every sale agreed.

Managing Director of Bonds Estate Agent, Daniel Bond, witnessed the incredible care provided by Sue Ryder staff in December 2016, so the decision to support the hospice was an easy one.

Caring for people with terminal conditions, Sue Ryder focus on quality of life and help people to live the fullest life they can. £100 pays for a visit from their community nurses and without the support of businesses such as Bonds they might have to cut back on services and close beds.

Hart Street Tavern and The Bottle and Glass

Hart Street Tavern, plus their sister pub The Bottle and Glass have partnered together to provide two great new offers for perspective house buyers and tenants.

Firstly, for anyone viewing Bond Estate Agents properties in the Henley area, you can take up the 'try before you buy' 20% discount off tea and cake . A great opportunity for you to get a taste of the Henley lifestyle, location and the chance to relax and mull over viewed properties. Secondly, on completion of a purchase of a property or a tenancy agreement, Bonds would like to help you settle in by presenting you with a voucher for 50% off cocktails and light bites – the perfect excuse to get away from unpacking those boxes.

Daniel Bond from Bonds said, "We are delighted to partner with Hart Street Tavern and The Bottle and Glass to offer a 'try before you buy' discount to perspective buyers and tenants within Henley-on-Thames and its surrounding area. We understand the importance of investing in a lifestyle when moving to a new area and it made perfect sense to allow viewers to sample this highly rated bistro in the heart of Henley situated by the Henley Royal Regatta finish line."

"Moving to a new home can be one of the most stressful, yet most fulfilling occasions and we would like to help you settle in with a half price cocktail and light bites whilst giving something back to the local community."

Both offers require pre-booking and valid Monday-Thursday.
