Philip James

Philip James is one of Greater Manchester’s largest independent chains of estate agents – every year we sell over £280m and manage over £410m of property. We are one of the North West’s fastest growing property companies with a 200% growth in the last five years. After expanding across Central and South Manchester, we opened new branches in East Manchester.

Our 65-strong team include some of the industry’s most experienced and respected professionals including top performing sales directors, accountants, financial advisors, investment buyers and management experts.



Philip James was taken over by Philip Nolan in 2003 with a vision to transform the business from a small branch agency to Manchester’s largest independent chain. Over the past decade Philip James has expanded into Manchester’s most popular residential areas including the City Centre, Didsbury, Withington and Heaton Moor.


Our company history


We believe in rewarding and investing in our staff

We employ the best people and then invest in them to make them even better. We also value hard work and recognise it by offering competitive basic salaries and incentive based benefit packages which can include commission, bonus or profit share schemes to say a big ‘Thank you’. We believe this is one of the reasons why we retain staff for far longer than our competitors!

We pride ourselves on the skills and quality of our team and our ability to develop new employees through good management and a structured review and personal development process that continues to maintain our high standards. As members of ARLA we provide external and internal training courses, actively encouraging Continuous Professional Development.


Working Environment

At Philip James, we encourage an inclusive and open-minded working environment. Even though we are a growing company we maintain a personal approach to our customers and staff to ensure that nobody ever feels that they are ‘just a number’.

Our centrally located offices are bright, recently rebranded, and modernised with the most up to date technology. We are reactive and best placed to make decisions quickly.

We take an innovative approach and are always open to new marketing ideas and approaches. In fact, we take marketing so seriously that we employ a full time Marketing Manager who looks after our branding, advertising, website and social media including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter
