Established in 2017, James Edward is a community focused, client-centric premium estate agency located in the heart of Highbury offering landlords and home sellers plus tenants and home buyers a truly personal, highly-trusted service at excellent value.
James Hall, the founder of the company, has been working passionately and successfully in the property industry for the last 19 years and has been employed by several different companies along the way, from small independents to large corporates.
James Edward offers the highest standards of security for clients being a member of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), and The Property Redress Scheme. Both these organisations require a proven level of competency and membership guarantees landlords and tenants that all money held by the agency is fully protected.
We are located right in the middle of Highbury, N5 which is where many of our landlords and sellers homes are.
Whilst we may not always be around the corner from your property, we guarantee we will be able to service it as if we were. Our aim is to comprehensively care for the needs of our landlords and tenants so our general rule of thumb, so as to offer the best and most effective service, is that we'll travel up to 45 minutes from our office. This means that we are not limited to Highbury, and we now have many properties we manage throughout London, and some in the Home Counties too.
If you like the sound of what we do and how we do it, then please do call or email.
Open All Hours
We’re open later so you can see or speak to us whenever you like: during the day, after work or at the weekend, you’re welcome any time. We’re around out of hours too, to suit your busy lifestyle. From evening viewings and valuations to simply being available on our direct mobile numbers, email and instant messaging (particularly popular for our overseas clients). If we can get back to you before morning, we will.

Meet the Team
My father was a chartered surveyor and I’ve had an irremovable interest in property from a young age. “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly” was ingrained in me, whether mending a broken tap and also in business. I believe in doing the right thing by people, we carry this throughout our business – sharing the same core values and enjoying a determined and rewarding culture which provides a peerless service at its heart. Away from work, my time is taken up along with my wife, raising our children and cooking, traveling and Sheffield Wednesday.
Sales & Lettings Manager
Having covered most of North and East London, I pride myself with over 14 years of expertise in the property industry. From initial meeting with clients, to handing over keys on completion day or beginning of a new tenancy, I have excellent knowledge and confidence throughout the entire process. Moving home can be an extremely stressful time and I aim to make this as easy as possible for our Clients. Outside of the office, I can be found in the local Highbury gym, walking my Whippet, Ralph, around Clissold Park or getting my caffeine fix from Finks Salt & Sweet.
With over several years of estate agency experience, I have extensive knowledge of the lettings, property management and sales process. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people and believe there’s no problem too big to solve. I love presenting a property and showing Clients a place where they can create their own home. It’s a nice feeling when you can give somebody the opportunity to have a better future. In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my family, exploring London testing all the coffee shops and looking for unique items in vintage shops.
Having lived in Highbury and Islington for over 30 years, I am very familiar with the area. The thing I love most about the area is the village feel and the great array of independent businesses.
In my role I provide administrative support and client services. I’m able to draw upon my wealth of experience gained whilst working across sectors including Architecture, Education, Member Services and Investment Banking.
In my spare time you’ll find me on long country walks, doing yoga & pilates and pottering about in my garden.
