Soon after Stuart Oliver began his property career in 1987, the housing market crashed.
In the depths of recession, mortgage rates sky-rocketed to 15%. It was an interesting start to life as an estate agent! The last 30 years have been no less dull, with every housing cycle throwing up its own challenges.
Throughout this time, Stuart’s been selling houses. From family homes in Surrey to penthouses in South West London. Country cottages in Bath to a range of houses and apartments in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. Stuart’s handled every type of transaction and overcome every potential issue to achieve the best price for each property. So he knows what works.
Stuart now applies his local knowledge and genuine enthusiasm for property in Bristol and North Somerset where he’s lived with his family for 17 years.
Stuart’s a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and launched Stuart Oliver Residential in 2018. Working alongside highly recommended mortgage and financial professionals, solicitors, and land and new homes specialists, we can offer a full service whether you’re buying or selling.
"Fantastic professional and personal service from Stuart. Not normally one to recommend estate agents but can certainly say SO residential is the exception - we received excellent service even after moving in and experiencing a few teething issues. Left on move day with no heating or hot water, Stuart provided heaters out of hours. We've moved several times in the last 10 years and Stuart has by far offered the best service and would recommend. Thanks again! "

"Thank you! We heard of SO Residential and arranged to meet with Stuart. After an initial conversation we decided we would much rather work with him and took our property off the market and waited for the end of term before allowing Stuart to represent us with the sale of our property in Portshead. His honesty and wealth of knowledge throughout made the process a lot more manageable particularly through a few tricky times. Stuart was sympathetic to our living situation with involved a long commute to work with a young child and understood our situation offering a very personal service throughout. We have already recommended so residential to anyone who made need it and will continue to do so without any hestitation. Thank you Stuart for all your hard work, we really do appreciate all that you did for us and wish you continued success with your new business. Ivy and Ben "

"`Outstanding service from the outset. From initial inspection of the house through photos and a very well presented sales brochure SO Residential proved to be the epitome of what and how real estate agency works to the best advantage of the seller. Having been involved in the property industry for many years myself I have nothing but praise for a true professional operator at the top of his game.` "
