Why Choose Us?
If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you’ll be aware that we’re pretty savvy about the local and UK property market, and aim to keep up with market trends. After all, it’s part of our job. But when it comes to selling or letting your property, how happy are our clients?
Selling property is what we do. And we are, if we say so ourselves, pretty good at it. We’ve been in business since 2004 and have seen the market rise and fall and rise again, always riding the waves to get the best deals for our clients. James Laurence began as a family run branch in the Jewellery Quarter, but we’ve now expanded to a second branch, all while maintaining our professional service levels and excellent standards to provide you with a service that is second to none.
We’re open six days per week, offer feedback on all our accompanied viewings within 24 hours, and hold an online presence on all the major UK property portals, so your property listing reaches as many people as possible.
I have been very impressed with James Laurence, who have recently sold my property. Having previously had a poor experience with Purple Bricks, I instructed James Laurence to help sell my property. I have worked with Henry throughout the whole process and have found him to be very professional and knowledgeable as well as being efficient. It can’t be stressed enough how important this is to have an estate agent that responds quickly, negotiates well and truly understands the market (especially during uncertain times like recently with the cover pandemic). I have briefly worked with Caroline and some of the other team members who also seem to be very efficient and friendly. Thanks again to James Laurence who I would fully recommend to anyone looking to Buy/Sell in Birmingham. – D. Jolly
I recently sold my property with James Laurence, and the overall experience was great. They demonstrated a good knowledge of the Birmingham property market when discussing sales strategy, marketing and pricing (more than I was expecting) towards the beginning of my experience with them. This showed when we achieved 2 asking price offers within the first couple days of showings. Once an offer was accepted, their support did not stop there, Caroline (Sales Progression) did a fantastic job at liaising between myself and the buyers side, helping to progress items and remove any potential blockers. I would fully recommend James Laurence to anyone looking to Buy/Sell in Birmingham.- J. Darby

The team at James Laurence was very helpful when I tried to find an apartment in Birmingham. I was in contact with a different letting agency but things fell through and they couldn’t help me. A colleague of mine recommended James Laurence Lettings so I emailed them immediately since I was was moving from Sweden and the move would take place in less than a week. The team at James Laurence responded within 5 minutes and managed to offer me a few different apartment-options. Things proceeded quickly and smoothly and just a few days later I had they keys to the apartment. James Laurence helped me every step of the way and went above and beyond to accommodate my requests. – Elias
We recently switched from another letting agency to James Laurence, as we found their team so warm and friendly and loved the local aspect of the agency. The team have absolutely exceeded our expectations, making the changeover feel so seamless and finding new tenants for our apartment at really short notice. Lotti could not have been more wonderful to work with, going completely above and beyond to ensure our tenants could move in just before Christmas. We felt an immediate affinity with her and have so appreciated her attention to detail, quick thinking and creativity. She has made us feel so at ease, supported and like our property is in the safest of hands. Charlotte and Melissa have also been so helpful and lovely to deal with during the process. Having worked with several other agencies in Birmingham, I cannot recommend James Laurence highly enough. Look no further, they are the best! J.C. Andreu
My wife and I deliberately go with James Laurence when renting because of the professionalism and great communication by staff at JL. If they say they will email you or call you… they do… Would recommend JL over the other competitors in the Birmingham area – J. Byrne
