Dedication, Determination, Knowledge

James Taylor Property Consultants offer a highly personal, client-led service in the fields of residential sales, residential lettings and property management in central London.

Based just two minutes' walk from Marble Arch, we cover prime areas such as Mayfair, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, St James's, Marylebone, Notting Hill, Holland Park, Chelsea and South Kensington. We have extensive and thorough knowledge of our marketplace with nearly 40 years of combined experience as between the Sales and Lettings partners and we enjoy excellent relations with a great many of the "key players" in the residential property industry including other leading agents, developers, surveyors, lawyers, designers and search/relocation agents.

We pride ourselves on a high standard of presentation and if instructed to market a property, no matter what value, we will produce a smart brochure with floor plans and we will ensure that the property is widely advertised in various print mediums (including the national and local press) as well as on key property internet portals www.primelocation.com and www.findaproperty.com. In addition we are accredited subscribers to www.lonres.com an inter-agent commission-sharing platform, which allows all other leading agents to know about our properties (and vice-versa).

We will provide initial advice on the preparation of the property prior to marketing and we can arrange for a Home Information Pack (HIP) to be supplied, and for rental properties Energy Performance, Gas & Electricity certificates as required by law.

We describe ourselves as being consultants rather than selling agents. We've discovered that buyers prefer to be guided rather than coerced, and sellers wish to be advised rather than browbeaten. Integrity is our watchword and our highly-valued and ever-growing client base is testament to this.
