James was born in Nottingham and educated locally at Stoneygate Prep School in Leicester then moving onto Loughborough Grammar School. Kirk began his career in estate agency over 19 years ago in Cornwall with Lillicrap Chilcott before going on to Foxtons in London. James excelled for over 3 years at Foxtons and then returned to his home county to set up and run an office for Humberts in the city of Lincoln. After being headhunted, James joined Savills based at their Nottingham office and swiftly became a key member of their highly respected residential development department. Having been mentored by the most respected, proven and successful estate agents in the UK Kirk is also notorious for being one of the hardest working, strongest negotiators whom will ensure only the very best result on behalf of his vendor client whatever the circumstances. James now has turned his dream into reality and founded Kirk Estates in August 2014.
"Mrs K Aucott, Old Dalby, Leicestershire"I have previously tried to sell my house with a number of other local estate agents with no success. To say I'm delighted with Kirk Estate's service is an understatement and I have no hesitation but to recommend them. Thank you Team Kirk.
"Mr & Mrs Inman, Stretton, Rutland"James Kirk and his team came to our rescue as we floundered ineffectually to sell our house with another estate agent. We soon got a sale and the Kirk machine went up several gears again, keeping a chain of five moving safely to exchange and completion. Dynamism, skill and professionalism characterise the James Kirk team. They left all others standing! Very many thanks to James Kirk and his team!
"David Chambers, Chairman, Lindum Group"When I purchased our family home in Lincolnshire 14 years ago it was through James, I was impressed so we entrusted him with the sale of another home. We have since kept in touch, I have followed his new brand and can personally vouch that his whole teams application, experience, performance and service will not fail to impress however demanding your requirements are.
"E Horton, Nottingham"Kirk Estates are simply in another league in their negotiation skills and deal closing ability . . . resulting in a successful sale substantially in excess of the guide prices other agents had quoted or what I expected, only Team Kirk could have done this. Thank you, I can't rave about you enough !!
"Andy Priestley, Managing Director, DSP Interiors Ltd"In my opinion without doubt the very best Estate Agent in the East Midlands.
"Jack Lester, ex Nottingham Forest Footballer"James pitched our house at a competitive price, his professional manner and negotiation skills achieved a great end result that we were extremely happy with. We would definitely use the team again and not hesitate to recommend them to our friends.
"David Summerland, Old Dalby, Leicestershire"Kirk Estates success is not good luck, it lies in them finding the key USP's of a property, producing impressive brochures, creating active targeted marketing and finally they roll in some of the best closers I know to get the sale. Happy seller and happy buyer. Good job Kirk Estates !!!
"Simon T, Leicestershire"We have found Kirk Estates to provide professional service you could come to expect from respected estate agents. What stands them out from the crowd is the personal way in which they approach each transaction, and tailor the service to suit.
"Mark Prince, Director Prince Petroleum, Nottinghamshire"It is so refreshing to find a company with such genuine enthusiasm - not just for achieving an end result but also for taking the time to listen to our requirements and to work with us. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Kirk Estates.
