As the market-leading independent lettings agent, the letting team, on average, rented a property in the city centre within 10 days, which is 50% faster than the national average. During the past 12 months alone, they also have secured landlords an average 5% increase in yield.

These statistics, backed by top industry property portals, demonstrate how the estate agent delivers the absolute best performance for its vendors and landlords. A winning combination of exceptional customer service, a fantastic range of property stock and a very fast sales and letting turnaround means that Philip James remains the market leader in Manchester, streets ahead of its competitors.

Managing director at Philip James Rob Cuffe said: “We’ve had a fantastic year in our city centre office, and we’re really proud of our entire team who really go above and beyond to provide the best service to both vendors and landlords possible.

“We work incredibly hard to ensure we’re consistently the best estate agent in the city centre, year on year in terms of sales figures. We’re also the number one agent for new letting instructions, proving that Manchester landlords trust the professional service we provide.”

Philip James’ city centre office is based in a prime location on Deansgate, and its directors only employ the industry’s best performing staff to ensure the company continues its high-performing reputation.

The agent consistently has a broad portfolio of property stock in top locations across the city centre, emerging areas such as Ancoats, Salford Quays and Media City. Whether you’re a young couple trying to get on the first rung of the ladder or an established buyer looking for the absolute top-end apartment in the city centre, Philip James can guide you through the process quickly and efficiently.

Portfolio management

With more than 2,000 rental properties under the management of the Philip James Partnership lettings team, it’s no wonder that so many landlords turn to the company for full management services.

Collectively managing £410 million of rental properties across Manchester city centre, Salford Quays, South Manchester and Stockport, the Philip James lettings team are dedicated to making each let as stress-free and efficient as possible – for both the tenant and the landlord.  

All Across the city

The agency has continued to grow and expand since it was taken over by Philip Nolan in 2003. And since then the property market, the city centre of Manchester and its suburbs have changed enormously. Now, as well as the flagship city centre branch, the Philip James Partnership also has offices in Didsbury, West Didsbury, Withington and Heaton Moor.

The city centre branch is located on the corner of Deansgate, next to the Beetham Tower, and showcases all its properties with a 24/7 LED window display to capture the thousands of prospective buyers or renters who walk past every day.

To ensure full visibility of any sales or rental property, every new property is also listed on the leading property portals, such as Rightmove and Zoopla.
