Nick has several years’ experience in customer service and Estate Agency Sales.

He loves building long terms relationships with both clients and candidates and is known to never sit down whilst he is on the phone.
Outside of work, he enjoys cruising to exotic new places and spending time with his wife (and two pugs). He is also an avid West Ham fan, so can often be found in East London on a Saturday afternoon singing “I’m forever blowing bubbles!”

She enjoys building strong relationships with her clients and can often be found nattering on the phone to them for far too long.
Outside of work Hayley enjoys her Sussex life with walks on the downs and the seafront with her little Frenchie! She never turns down shopping, wine, or chocolate.
Annie has a background in Business Development and has covered the whole of the UK travelling to meet new and existing clients building longlasting relationships. Working within the Property Recruitment Division she loves to get out and about and strives to find the perfect candidate for the role.
She has a bubbly personality and is a good person have around the office to keep spirits high. She loves going on holiday and her favourite destination is Italy.

Lily has recently graduated from university after completing her postgraduate study in English Literature, Television and Film. Shortly afterwards stepped into the lucrative world of recruitment for 6 months recruiting like-minded graduates eager to get their foot in the door. Not long after discovering her passion for real-estate, she joined us at Magnus James, enabling her to kill two birds with one stone!
She doesn’t shy away from a challenge and will be the first to put herself forward whether it being snowboarding down the black slopes in the French Alpes or up on-stage singing karaoke (badly) in her local pub. But when she isn’t being an adrenaline junky, you will find her cozied up on the sofa, with her cat and a glass of white watching classic rom coms.
