James acquired Winkworth Southbourne late last year and has made such an impact he is already launching another branch in his home from home - Ferndown. James spent ten successful years managing Hearnes in Ferndown so there is not much about the area he does not know! This wealth of knowledge undoubtedly gives clients great comfort and confidence when buying or selling through James. He is very excited to be back and has a unique attention to detail with a keen interest in photography and print, which helps to give the marketing we can offer you the edge. The opportunity arose to become business partner with Rosella and proved too tempting to turn down. ‘I love being co-owner of an established brand that has the reach of over 100 London offices, our business is built on service levels which I believe is the key differentiator that drives our success. I take great pride in ensuring that all our clients genuinely feel we care about their individual needs’ Says James. Happily married and father to Azalea and Jasmine in his rare moments off you will find James’s spending time with family and friends or on the local golf course.
