Josh Godfrey

Managing Director

I was born in London but spent my childhood in Buckinghamshire schooling at Thorpe House, Claires Court and John Hampden Grammar School before obtaining a degree in marketing at Portsmouth University in 2006. I then joined blue chip company Hayes PLC working in their construction recruitment division. That industry was hit hard by the 2007/08 banking crisis and in 2008 I left Hayes and set up Oakwood Estates.

I had no pre-conceived ideas on lettings or estate agency so brought a fresh insight on how that business should be run. The concept has worked well with the business growing on a consistent basis year upon year. Over the past decade the industry has changed rapidly and so it’s been vitally important that we adapt and innovate so that we can provide the best possible service to all our customers. I strongly believe that ‘you’re only as good as the people you have around you’. I feel blessed to have fantastic staff and a loyal core of clients who have helped us grow the business from one office in Richings Park to the eight that we now have in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Middlesex.

A key internal strategy has been to invest and develop our own technology which allows us to provide our team with cutting edge tools to support our clients on a day-to-day basis. By making sure opportunities are not missed the end result is a more efficient and effective service, ensuring the best possible outcomes for all involved.

What I enjoy most is meeting and speaking to customers whether it be property management, lettings or sales. I like rolling up my sleeves and getting involved in all aspects of the business. When I’m not working I’m a family man, enjoying time with my wife and two young sons.
