James is no stranger to the investment world, having been part of it for over three decades.

By its very nature, transactional business can be a rollercoaster ride however the highs more than make up for the lows having yielded over £2bn worth of transactions for James. 

James is regarded as a go-to advisor. The repeat transactional business he secures is down to his exceptional industry-wide reputation and the relationships he nurtures with his clients, some of which go back 25 years. 

James’s experience is diverse and ranges from development funding, single asset and portfolio transactions together with asset management. A recent disposal of 102 HSBC bank branches was “like herding cats”. The varied nature of property, in relationship driven industry will continue to harness James’ commitment and passion. 

Internal relationships are as important to James as those generated externally. Colleagues appreciate his upfront and honest approach, and together with his vast experience, the advice he offers is invaluable.
