James covers the Southern Home Counties for The Buying Solution, specialising in country houses and prime properties within the more suburban areas of his region. Having started his property career back in 2010 with Knight Frank, he has spent the last decade predominantly as a selling agent within the London, Country and International Residential Markets. His experience stretches from several years within the Country House Department covering the Home Counties to running two London offices; Queen’s Park and Fulham.
Over his time in agency, he has developed a reputation as a trusted advisor, with a very personable style, who provides an invaluable and highly focused service for his clients. With his passion for proactive client management, a keen eye for detail and expert negotiating skills, James is a natural fit for the role as a Buying Agent.
His region is a market that is closely linked to London and very international so, with his experience across multiple markets, James is particularly well-placed to advise clients looking to purchase in areas such as the Surrey Hills, Guildford, the South Downs, the Wealds or the private estates in and around St George’s Hill, providing a real insight into the area, be it schools, commutes or lifestyle.
Having grown up in the Home Counties, James appreciates everything his region has to offer, especially for those clients who want a mixture of rural or a more urban lifestyle, with excellent connections to London and major airports. Away from work he can often be found hiking in a national park or dashing down to Cornwall for the weekend. An avid skier from a young age, James is a member of, and races for, the Kandahar Ski Club as well as also enjoying ski touring and long lunches in the sunshine!
