OUR VALUES

AT WORK

In the past, we’ve spent too long in dull, uninteresting office spaces – so we’re definitely not going to be doing that.

We therefore create and run workspaces which are vibrant, funky and uplifting places to be.  We know businesses today have a range of different needs that can change at short notice.  That’s why we offer flexible contracts and a range of solutions ranging from fully setup offices through to simply reception services and meeting hubs.  Oh, and great coffee.

To get things just right, we believe in partnering with the best organisations.  That’s why we operate as part of the Exeid national network – giving you quality assurance, backup and a national network should you ever need to move anywhere else.

AT HOME

We have a range of high quality rental homes in Bicester and York.  In our shared houses, rent includes all bills, cleaners, gardener, fast wifi and a great community of like-minded, carefully screened housemates.

We are responsive, involved and professional NLA accredited landlords.

We work closely with like-minded business partners and aspire to be the “best in Bicester” at what we do.

AT EASE

We take care of everything so that you don’t have to.

Whether it’s a home or a workspace you’re looking for, we operate on a simple, all-inclusive basis.  That means we take care of the bills – heating, lighting, council tax / rates, cleaning etc; allowing you to plan your budget easily and spend more of your time doing what you want to be doing.

We believe in personal contact with people you meet, know and trust.  That’s why we’re personally involved in all of our business activities and contactable if you have any issues.  Our team is small and share our values so you should always know what to expect.

Lastly, we like to treat people with respect and understand that situations change.  If times become difficult for you for whatever reason, we’ll treat you like a human being not a contract.

WHO WE ARE

Point of Difference is owned and operated by Andy and Vashti Bedwell.  We’re a husband and wife partnership who have worked together for around 15 years and been married a bit longer than that.  We share a passion for our business and for living life to the full.

 

Andy 

I love working in property – the mix of great people and great buildings really inspires me.  Over the past few years, I’ve developed a passion for bringing old, under-utilised buildings to life in a way that people engage with.  Before working in property, I worked for large organisations predominantly in Leadership and Change management roles – a fulfilling part of my life but one I’m happy to have left behind.

Outside work, I love skiing, scuba-diving, supporting Sheffield Wednesday and spending time with our two boys Dan and Shaun.

Vashti 

Having been a stay at home mum for 10 fabulous years I was ready for something new but it had to build on what I loved while I was involved with kids groups, the PTA and being a school governor…….

Relationships is what it’s about –  with our housemates, our clients, our trades, our cleaners.  I love being part of a community and knowing we are making a true difference to peoples lives.

Our business partners

We believe in working in partnership with sector leading specialists to develop the best product we possibly can.  This also keeps us legal, safe and compliant with all relevant legislation.

Our main partners are: Platinum Property Partners for homes and Exeid for workspace.
