Gatekeeper was established in 2003 and has grown from a single site to a multi site operation. The company has grown by offering a fresh and dynamic approach to the property market.

The reason for this success is that Gatekeeper delivers results, a 1st class service at a competative price. Mat Symons (Gatekeeper Sales Director) explains "We not only work harder we train harder and invest more in our people to ensure that they deliver the results 'time after time'. The fact that the over whelming majority of our new business comes through referrals proves we deliver a level of service that you would happily recommend to a friend or relative."

I have 2 properties in different towns with Gatekeeper which I rent out.
Both the local teams and central office team are exceptionally customer focused. They always have answers to questions and take the time to explain details and make recommendations. My tenants are also really happy with the service and support they receive.

We rented a house in Swindon through Gatekeeper. We have just bought our first home and we just wanted to say thanks because the team couldn't have been more helpful during a stressful time! They made sure we knew what we had to do throughout the whole process of checking out and while we were in the house (just over a year), we only had a couple of things that needed work and Gatekeeper got maintenance people out quickly to fix them for us. When they needed to come to the house for viewings, we always got a text and an email to let us know what was happening and when we had friends over they understood and rearranged viewings around us. We would definitely recommend them - we've rented through lots of agents in the Area and we both felt that Gatekeeper has the best service and has thought about what tenants need.

Having been a customer of Gatekeeper for many years I have to say I am always impressed by the dedication and support offered to me by the whole team. The sales team always keep me up to date on what is happening with market trends and do a great job if I need to find a new tenant and the Property Care Team always keep me informed on how the property is looking and what work may or may not be needed to keep condition up. I cant recommend highly enough.

Cant thank the team enough for all there support and advice


I have just sold my house with Gatekeeper and it was the first time I had sold a home. I remember my buying experience to be a little stressful but full of excitement as It was my first time buying, but the selling process was hassle free and simple. Dan and Sam always kept me up to date on what was happening and gave me really good feedback from viewings. Once I accepted the offer they made sure I was always aware of what was going on and what was due to happen when. Thanks Guys!


As a former landlord I can highly recommend Gatekeeper, for many reasons.

Their quotes of rental com whilst not as high as other companies were actually better value when you take into account the whole package over a long-term rent. As a landlord I paid for full management, which unlike other providers is cheaper than part management, this is their quality control on repairs. The assumption being consistency in jobs as they use the same quality providers.

I had a few jobs needed (front door wouldn't lock, toilet constantly flushing, oven stopped working) and each time they used the same system. If it's below a set amount you have a presigned waiver to go ahead without need for consultation (£100). Above that the team give you costed options, send out an engineer, replace the appliance there and then, combination if the two, and then 3 costed option for alternate appliances if appropriate. The level and speed if communication worked for, and I'm a stickler for good comms! I'm happy to report none of the repairs needed to be revisited.

If I were to be a landlord again I would definitely talk to Gatekeeper first, and have for all the reasons above been recommending them to potential renters also.

From Our Website

We look after properties in Witney, Banbury, Bicester, Swindon and Aylesbury, but we don't need a branch in every town. Gatekeeper staff work together, sharing knowledge in one central office. Our local teams maintain a focus on their areas by getting out to visit more properties and speak to more customers than traditional agents. Hi I'm Mat, the Sales Director and one of the four founders of Gatekeeper. I've headed up the Sales and Letting team from day one and it's my job to ensure that they're always as driven and passionate as I am.


Gatekeeper was born 11 years ago with four founders, all aiming to deliver a fresh way to buy, sell, let and rent property. Ultimately that means putting people first. We've always felt that if our customers are happy, the business will grow. The business continues to thrive and our teams now cover Witney, Aylesbury, Swindon, Banbury and Bicester. Key to our success is our unique structure; we all sit in one central office, sharing local market knowledge (and quite a lot of cake). This means we can offer the best customer service alongside market leading prices.


Over the last 25 years, we have established great relationships with our landlords, listening to what they want from their local letting agent, and as a result have developed a comprehensive service tailored to fit your needs. Our central office, local focus structure means that we offer excellent local market knowledge and service at leading prices. We all sit together under one roof but our local teams visit your property more often than many traditional agents, giving you the best of both worlds.


Mat Symons is one of the Founders of Gatekeeper and has extensive experience in both performance management and the commercial environment having worked for a number of blue chip retailers. Having stacked up a list of achievements and awards, including holding the position of Regional Sales Director at Comet at the tender age of 21 years, his next challenge was to drive the success of Gatekeeper. He has ensured that our portfolio has expanded at an impressive rate while maintaining our core values.
