About

Matthew James Property ConsultantsExperts in the Local Market

Matthew James Property Consultants was established in 2018 when, after the birth of his first child, Matthew decided he wanted to grow a business that his family and clients would be proud of.

As a family owned and run business, we strive to deliver a service to customers that is beyond what you’d ordinarily expect. We combine our years of knowledge with a truly personalised service and we offer competitive fees, no minimum contracts, and high quality marketing material; this all ensures that we achieve high market rents and let properties quickly.

We use all forms of marketing to showcase your property to ensure it’s placed in front of applicants who are actively looking. We not only advertise on national websites such as Rightmove and Zoopla, but also, send ‘direct mail outs’, and utilise the ever-growing social media platforms along with our own website.

Your property is photographed taking into consideration its best angles. Combined with floorplans, these photographs will encourage applicants to contact us to arrange a viewing where we will also supply coloured brochures highlighting the benefits of your property.

We encourage all applicants to view the property in person, not only so they can get a real feel of your property, but this allows us to get a real understanding of your potential tenants.

We offer a portal to Landlords and Tenants to view the tenancy agreements, rent statements, check on the status of maintenance issues and tenancy agreements renewals.

As a family business, everyone from the director to the administration staff is involved in the day-to-day running of the business, allowing you to build a personal business relationship with the people who will be looking after your asset.

Client Reviews

Professional, very frank, very honest, and most importantly reliable and hard working. As a landlord, absolute top quality agent, and I've dealt with a few!

Matthew has been excellent throughout the entire process of finding us a tenant. He acted incredibly quickly to value, put the details to market and find us a great tenant. We live abroad so it was great to have an agent so trustworthy; as we were letting out our home, Matthew was very sensitive to ours needs and ticked all of our boxes when it came to finding the right tenant.We never had to chase for feedback or updates, and general communication was handled brilliantly. Also very competitive fees and straightforward contracts, with no hidden fees. Matthew also sorted out EPC, boiler serving and key cutting. It was incredibly refreshing to know we were in safe hands throughout the process, as well as going forward as Matthew manages the property for us.We will most definitely be using MJPC whilst we are landlords and will recommend to our friends and family.Thanks Matthew!

A total professional experience, Matt got us good quality tenants within the week achieving a good rental. Landlords here is a first he sent over rent and deposit within 24 hours of tenants moving in, with other agents they hang on to the money for as long as they can but not this time. Very impressive all around.

A really professional and friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble. We were never left with the feeling that any of our questions were a waste of their time.

Having traditionally dealt with the big names on the High Street it been an absolutely refreshing change to deal with a company that actually cares about what they are doing, returns your communications promptly and genuinely has your best interest at heart. Several potential tenants were found for my property and with their assistance we found what I believe to be the best tenant. I would not hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to other landlords or tenants.

Me and my partner have rented 2 property’s via Matthew James and both times have been so easy and Matthew has been so helpful. First property got sold so Matthew said he would help us find somewhere which he did, this was amazing and so helpful to us especially while I was pregnant. They did such a amazing job to get us moved and settled so quickly! I would highly recommend Matthew James as most estate agents brushed us off apart from these. Everything we’ve needed has been sorted quickly and efficiently. 5* very professional!

We have had the services of Matthew James for a year now and from the onset cannot fault them. From the very first viewing of our rental property to moving in and then aftercare was/is faultless. Fantastic customer care, always a solid professional and friendly approach with a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude. Without a doubt happy to recommend Matthew James to prospective landlords and tenants. Keep up the good work!!!!

I can honestly say that Matthew James is the best and most professional letting agent I have ever used. Not only was Matthew wonderful when we were looking at what is not our current home, but the aftercare has also been outstanding. In the past I've found once the contracts are signed you are on your own with letting agents/landlords, but this is not the case with Matthew James , who continue to give wonderful service throughout the tenancy.Highly highly recommend using this agent for all your property needs!
