The people we've helped
  • 5 star review  This is our second experience with James Laurence, this time as Sellers but 2.5 years ago as buyers. I wrote a review about the previous experience which was excellent and I believe this experience warrants another great review. This time we worked more directly with Henry who is an excellent communicator. From the word go he demonstrated impressive subject matter expertise, confidence and professionalism. He regularly follows up on progress and bridges the gap between purchaser and vendor extremely well. I'm confident that James Laurence is a company that has high standards embedded in to its culture and highly recommend them.

  • 5 star review  Had a great experience with James Laurence. Reece Parkinson and Henry Crane were excellent. As a first time buyer, they were very patient with me and my questions and reassured me at every hurdle. Henry even helped chase my non-responsive solicitors which I’m forever grateful for. I would highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Honestly can't thank Kelly enough for all the help she has given me during my current moving process! As stressful as it has been, Kelly has gone above and beyond to clarify and assist me on information, even during her own time when not at work. Kelly is a real asset to this branch and gives the company a good reputation, would definitely recommend her and this branch to others, and would use them again for future moves. Thanks again so much! :)

  • 5 star review  We recently chose James Lawrence to sell our flat in the Jewellery Quarter, and couldn't be happier that we did. Henry and Reece were both exceptional, and kept us informed throughout the entire process, as well as chasing up all parties at key moments to make sure things kept moving. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and approachable and we highly recommend choosing James Lawrence if you're looking to sell your property.

  • 5 star review  Recently completed on a flat sale with James Lawrence and it was the straightforward process one could normally only hope for. Nice to have estate agents (Henry & team) who were ahead of you at every moment in terms of updates on the sale. If you like to be well informed, advised and are generally a-bit too busy with life to let the buying/ selling of your property become a typical housing headache then I’d only recommend them to alleviate the strain!! Cheers guys for the help - professional, amiable and tight ship.
