Here at James Laurence we understand that as the property market regains confidence so does its customers, which is why we aim to meet all clients wants, needs and expectations. Our dedicated and experienced sales and lettings team will take you from registering a valuation request to completing a sale or a successful tenancy.

We pride ourselves on finding customers their dream home and getting vendors and landlords an efficient sale or let, at the best price possible.  Offering traditional values, we use the very latest marketing and selling techniques that all customers should expect from an independent company.
