“A founding director of Rosehill Advisors, I specialise in property and land management across the South of England. I have over 25 years of experience working on a wide range of development and restoration projects, including new builds, listed buildings, agricultural buildings, barn conversions and large-scale garden and parkland creation and restoration.

In 2001 I was a founding director of Knighton Countryside Management which was built into one of the largest ecological and forestry contracting businesses in the UK. I have also been involved for many years in farming and conservation and during my time at Knighton Countryside, we were responsible for planting in excess of 2.5 million trees across the South of England.”

“I appointed James to project manage the restoration of a range of derelict cottages I own on my estate. His approach to the project saved £300k over the initial quotes that I had received and the project was finished on time and on the new, much reduced budget.”

“I work in London and James visited the site 215 times in the course of supervising my new home build, keeping me informed at all times and enabling me to remain involved in the design, detailing and execution of the project from start to finish.” 

“His attention to detail was exemplary and he ensured that stress levels were kept to a minimum throughout!”
