Here's what some of our valued Clients had to say about us...Submit a Testimonial
We purchased our first home from a seller who used David James. They've been fantastic throughout the entire process. After our offer was accepted they marked the property as sold the same day, they replied to emails quickly, always answered calls, have been great at chasing solicititors and keeping everyone up to date and have been a pleasure to deal with.
We Purchased Our First Home Through David James
We had a lot of ups and downs in buying a bungalow and we had difficulty finding one that suited us and staff at David James did not rush us into buying something that wasn't quite right. They were very patient and helpful.
We Bought a property through David James
We bought our house through David James and couldn't recommend them more. Vicky at the Mapperley branch was amazing, super responsive, kind and always happy to help. We sold ours through William H brown and had real trouble getting hold of anyone and never received a phone call back until I eventually escalated to the branch manager. This wasn't the case at David James, there was always someone to answer the phone and you were guaranteed a prompt call back if the person you needed wasn't available at the time. Vicky was detailed and would give advice that was much needed. She also managed to track down the mortgage advisor for our sellers to ensure we hit our target moving date as without her intervening, we would have missed the agreed move date and incurred huge cost and not to mention inconvenience. I quite miss our daily calls! My only regret is not listing our house with them initially, I am sure the process would have been even smoother if we would have done. If in doubt, go with David James!
We bought a property from David James
We used David James to sell our house and they were amazing. The whole team is friendly and helpful, and Justine was constantly one step ahead and went above and way beyond what was expected of her. If it wasn’t for her we may not now be in our lovely new home!
We Sold With David James
We have sold with David James and found very professional and efficient. This time round Lorraine dealt with us making a long and at time a very uncertain and stressful process bearable with her kind and respectful nature. Thank you Lorraine
From valuation by David Radford to completion of sale I've always received professional and friendly guidance throughout. Every member of the team either through the Arnold or Mapperley office have always been so pleasant whenever I've needed to make contact. I make special recognition though to Residential Sales Negotiator Kerry O'Connor who has just been so helpful and reassuring with every aspect of my sale over the many months. I would definitely have no reservation in recommending David James Estate Agents to any of my family and friends whenever needed.

My partner and I recently purchased our home in Woodthorpe, advertised by David James. We had an excellent experience as buyers. From arranging a virtual viewing at the beginning of lockdown, all the way through to exchange, Natasha and her colleagues were very dedicated to making the process as smooth as possible! Would not hesitate to use David James in future
Moved in to a property let via David James during the Covid Lockdown. I can only continue to be impressed by the swift professional responses we get back each and everytime. Also the provisions made to be Covid safe have been second to none. Would recommend highly
I am a Tenant
An exceptional service, at the top of their game. We've bought and sold through DJ and recently left our rental in their capable hands. Would highly recommend
We have bought and sold through David James
I have had a great experience buying my first property with David janes mapperley and also with them managing my rental property. They are extremely professional and offer a great service that is value for money. Any call outs where I have needed work doing they have provided they’re own contractors and the prices and service from this is second to non. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a company to manage their properties.
I have bought a property and also been a tenant through David James
David James have been fantastic in both our sale and lettings experiences with them. As first time landlords, their knowledge about the market and advice they have provided has been invaluable. Polite and professional each time, would highly recommend both teams! Thank you all.

Very supportive staff, answered all my queries promptly and kindly. The process of renting a house was quick and straight forward, no issues.
I am a tenant
As a first time landlord I was a bit wary of the whole process but from the first meeting with James and then dealing with the lettings team Grace and Charlotte the whole process went really smoothly and let my house in under 3 weeks. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to do this
I am a first time Landlord
My sale took a long time but David James stuck with me and continued to work for me all the time and ultimately we had a successful outcome which I believe was solely down to David James Estate Agents. In particular Vicky Ingram from the Post Sales Department was attentive and reassuring to me at times when I felt the sale would never happen. She was my first point of contact as it was her that was communicating with all the other parties and unlike my solicitor she kept me regularly updated. In previous house sales the estate agent has had little interaction after finding me a buyer but this certainly was not the case with David James.

David James helped me through a very long sale and purchase, but the delays were not their fault. They kept me in touch with regular updates throughout the process and were very sympathetic and supportive. In the end it all worked out successfully and I am grateful for their professional service
I sold my property through David James
Very efficient and friendly staff. The team have an excellent knowledge of the area and the property market in general. I was kept updated throughout all stages of purchasing my property and the team were professional and responsive at all times
I purchased a property through David James
All the above, and far more. EVERYBODY who helped us from the start of the ‘process’ to the final day, were absolutely amazing, so capable, highly professional, kind & very thoughtful. We couldn’t have wished for more, and having spoken to other people about their moves, it’s clear that David James are way ahead of every other organisation selling houses. As time went on we obviously mainly had contact with, and from Vicky Ingram, who always let us know how things were going & immediately responded to any queries we had. Vicky was brilliant, but so was everyone else, we had contact with. We can’t thank you all enough. The link with ‘Yates & Co’ was another benefit & it worked really well, with Luke Bignall & his colleagues being equally exceptional. Your fees for all that work were extremely good. Thank you from us both, to you All, for making our move much less stressful than it might have been. Our enormous thanks and Very Best Wishes for the future to you all. You are ALL Stars!

We sold our property through David James
We have been so impressed with David James, they have been brilliant and at communicating with us during our house purchase and have been so lovely every time we have spoken to them. Michelle has been amazing throughout the process, she is so lovely! We also spoke to Justine on a few occasions who was also great and so helpful!
I purchased a property through David James
We chose David James based on their website and the fact they were selling a lot of houses in our area. From start to finish, we cant fault the service we received. From initial valuation to final completion we were very impressed. The quality of our listing especially the video in the listing was thorough and comprehensive & the customer service we received was excellent throughout. We had a challenging sale but David James handled it with professionalism and efficiency. We would like to single out VIcky for praise who gave over and above throughout a very difficult sale. She was superb and without her we don't think we could have got our sale "over the line". A big thanks to all the David James team, we would heartily recommend them

Finding a house to rent through David James was easy and straightforward. Grace was particularly helpful with all my annoying requests, and got us in the house easily and swiftly. Every question we had was answered and dealt with in a professional manner which made the whole move easy! Would recommend!
I am viewing rental properties

I've dealt with several members of the team but I wanted to mention Natasha in particular as she has been an absolute start helping with my first purchase which should hopefully complete next week. She's done so much going back and forth with calls and emails to help us get to almost the finish line
I am purchasing a property through David James
My husband and I are about to complete on the purchase of our new home and I would like to say thank you to Lucy for helping us to secure the property and then to Natasha for getting us to completion. This was quite a lengthy process due to poor engagement from the sellers solicitors but Natasha went above and beyond in contacting them on a regular basis and making sure both myself and my solicitor were updated. Natasha left no stone unturned and it was a pleasure working with her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natasha, Lucy and David James and want to say a big thank you to them.
We Bought A Home With David James
I have been dealing with the sale of my deceased relative’s property. When David Radford first came to do the valuation, I felt very comfortable with his down-to-earth approach. He managed to balance friendliness and professionalism, which I found both appealing and reassuring. Despite the limitations of covid-19, and me living in New Zealand, the level of communication from the Mapperley team was excellent. Once we had a definite offer the Sales Negotiator Natasha White, was absolutely amazing. Her willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ to compensate for me having to do everything by email from New Zealand was so supportive. I am delighted to have chosen David James and have no hesitation in recommending them.
I Sold A Property For A Deceased Relative
My husband and I both sold our houses to buy one bigger house. The service we had from David James was excellent. With them selling both our houses and all had to go through at the same time was not an easy task. They dealt with the problems we had a along the way and also pulled it out of the bag for us when one of the buyers pulled out at the last minute to turn them around and all went through. All the ladies we dealt with were lovely but I would like to especially like to say Natasha and Michelle are worth their weight in gold your expertise and professionalism is a credit to you both. I recommend David James to anybody looking at selling their house or looking to rent out their property Thanks you Mr and Mrs Coxon

We Sold Two Homes With David James
I recently sold my property through David James and dealt with the lovely ladies at the Carlton office. I would like to thank the staff for their hard work, professionalism and patience. I would like to pay particular thanks to Natasha, who through sheer determination and constant chasing managed to successfully get everyone in the chain moved on the requested date. Without her help, none of us would have moved on time. I would not hesitate to recommend David James estate agents in the future to friends and family.
We Sold Our Home
I would like to thank Lucy Shepherd for making my property purchase as smooth as possible despite challenges in the way due a lengthy lease extension and poor communication from solicitors. Lucy worked hard to make sure that I was kept updated at all times, constantly chased solicitors and the vendor on my behalf in order to speed up the process and always went the extra mile. I would highly recommend Lucy and David James when choosing to purchase or sell a property. Many thanks, Emily

There are three rates of stamp duty land tax which could be applicable to the purchase of a property and are dependent on your circumstances.
If you are a first time buyer, then there no stamp duty to be paid on the first £300,000 of the purchase price of a property valued below £500,000.
If you are buying a property as a second home or investment, or you are retaining your current property whilst purchasing a new principal residence, you will be liable for a stamp duty surcharge of 3%. In the latter circumstance, the stamp duty surcharge payment is refundable if the property you have retained is sold within three years of your purchase date.
