Chartered Surveyor

James Morgan

Chartered Surveyor

Time at John German? I first joined John German Estate Agents in the Ashby office as a trainee Land Agent in 1981 where I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor a year later. After 10 years in various parts of the country I moved to the John German Stafford office to head up the Residential Estate Agency and Valuation department where I stayed until we opened in Uttoxeter in 2004. I now work from Ashbourne and Uttoxeter combining with my role as Managing Director.

The best part of your job? Despite how long I have been doing it, I get huge satisfaction from doing a deal and achieving a great result for a client. It is great when clients follow your advice and the result achieved match or exceed everyone’s expectations.

The best part of your job? When selling a property it is vital to prepare well to avoid unnecessary delays and avoidable issues spoiling the sale in the final stages of the deal. It is really worthwhile reviewing the condition of the house and sorting out those teething problems which could deter buyers and create a plethora of damning words from surveyors. Also ensure all the appropriate certificates and paperwork is readily available for your solicitor.
