One of the UK’s oldest estate agents acquires 70-year-old agency

Chestertons, one of London’s oldest and largest estate agencies, has continued its growth across the capital by acquiring the letting and management business of Henry & James, a successful boutique business based in Knightsbridge.

Operating from its office on Motcomb Street in Knightsbridge, Henry & James has specialised in the finest properties across Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Chelsea since it was established over 70 years ago in 1950. Its lettings and management team will now join Chestertons’ team in its nearby Knightsbridge office on Lowndes Street.

This acquisition comes after Chestertons’ purchases of several other lettings businesses including Morgan Randall, London Residential and Snell & Snell.

Richard Davies, COO of Chestertons, commented: “Chestertons has been operating in Central London for over 200 years and we are delighted to have found a lettings and property management business which shares our values on client service and appreciates the importance of local knowledge.

“Their clients will continue to receive outstanding service from the same team but enjoy the additional benefits of Chestertons, including our Corporate and Short Lets departments and our specialist compliance advice.”
