We were initially introduced to James Neilson through friends.

We recently sold our house successfully through Neilson and Bauer. They were our sole agents. The house is a very beautiful and unique property on Thornhill Road. They found the right buyers. We were initially introduced to James Neilson through friends. He sold their property in Islington a few years ago. They were confident that James Neilson was someone we could trust. And how right they were. We hold him in very high regard. His partner Graham Bauer has also given us great service. They are both warm and unpretentious men who run an impressive agency. Many thanks to all at Neilson and Bauer. Kenneth Cranham and Fiona Victory. Read more
