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.
We pride ourselves on delivering accurate advice through an honest approach to ultimately build trust with our clients and customers.
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.
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!
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.
Born and raised in Twyford, I have been a part of the elegant surrounding areas such as; Wargrave, Marlow, Henley-on-Thames and small villages like Hambledon and Turville all my life. I play Golf at the traditional Golf Club that is Temple Golf Club in Hurley, I go shopping in Marlow and Henley and I walk my two dogs in Hambledon and Turville. Being part of such an amazing group of communities is what I am proud of and sets apart this area to others. I found my love for Real Estate in 2014, helping my parents in buying and letting properties in Twyford. I studied Science, Business and English A-Level at The Piggott School in Wargrave and have now gone on to achieve my dream of working in Estate Agency.
Having recently bought a property and settled my own family in my home town of Henley, I am excited to join such an innovative and dedicated team. After studying at both Gillott's school, Shiplake College and University of Leeds I graduated Oxford College of Marketing and have enjoyed a 15 year career in Marketing and Business Development; running commercial marketing agencies and consulting for London property agents, and now run my own consultancy specialising in online business strategy. 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.
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.
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!

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.
We are proud to announce that we are expanding our partnership with the Henley Rugby Club this season with individual sponsorship for some incredible Hawks players; Ben Bolster, Marcus Lowe, George Wood and Reuben Norville.
We are also proud to be joint kit sponsors for the Hawks, Hawk's Ladies and all mini and junior teams, as well as match day programme sponsor.
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."
