About us


We are expert home search and property investment consultants with almost twenty years of property experience. Searching for a new home or buy to let investment can be time consuming and sometimes stressful. Our key objectives once we have understood your requirements are to save you time, money and make the process fun. We don’t spread ourselves thin and act only for a limited number of clients across Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds alone. This ensures our black book of local estate agent and developer contacts remains strong, and often allows us off market access to both purchase and rental opportunities unavailable to the wider public.

About you

About You


Clients enjoy our discretion, professionalism and the highest levels of customer service at all times. Trust is key in the relationship between search agent and client and unless we have fully understood you and your household’s lifestyle and objectives, we are unlikely to be successful in an effective search. Our initial conversations are therefore based on a policy of 'listen first' as we start get to know you and understand your requirements. Only then can we start to tailor our service to suit your circumstances.

About John

About John


John Gebbels is the Founder of OXON Property Search and looks after each client personally. With almost twenty years of property experience in both London and Oxfordshire spanning property search, development, project management and buy to let investment, John has a broad expertise and holds an absolute focus on the importance of honest advice and excellent customer service. 

 “Climbing the corporate ladder was never for me. Instead I elected to work for small and successful independent property firms in doing what I do best: getting results by providing friendly, honest and straight forward property advice. When the time was right I seized the opportunity to create OXON Property Search to further expand this ethos in doing it ‘my way’. I put my client's property goals first, utilise my expertise to get results and my empathetic nature ensures clients receive a personable five star service”.   John Gebbels 

"We were looked after by John Gebbels. We can't say enough to praise him for his help throughout this process. We don't currently live in the UK, and therefore made this purchase from a distance, with John acting as our agent "on the ground" in Oxford. Perhaps the greatest difficulty in making such a purchase from abroad is the sense of uncertainty and lack of confidence involved, and John was extremely helpful in eliminating our concerns in this regard. He was exceptionally trustworthy, knowledgeable, responsible and efficient, and we felt completely confident in his hands. In addition to his professionalism and integrity, John was also very pleasant and patient. He never made us feel that we're a burden to him, or that our concerns are unreasonable or unimportant. Every issue we raised was addressed promptly, respectfully and intelligently. Looking back at the process, we believe that if it were not for John and our trust in him, we would not have been able to bring this purchase to completion. Thanks so much, John!”   TP, Israel
