Franklyn James, E14
- ABOUT FRANKLYN JAMES
We believe in being Frank. That means straight-talking, honesty and doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. Turning up on time. Phone calls promptly returned. Doing the paperwork. Being polite and friendly. And while our team are enthusiastic, energetic and empowered to make things happen, they know that dishonesty – such as inflating an asking price to secure an instruction – simply won’t be tolerated. It’s not fancy. It’s just Frank.

She achieves this by being highly organised and working efficiently to deadlines. Outside of work, Nicole makes sure she takes time to relax; whether this be with a great book, a large slice of reality TV or by going to a beauty salon.
James BickfordSenior Lettings Negotiator
Raised in Chigwell, James is currently training for his ARLA lettings qualification, having started working in estate agency in 2013. Prior to this, James trained as a quantity surveyor, but he prefers his current role as it is more sociable and he gets to meet new people every day. James is a committed supporter of Arsenal FC and he plays football three times a week. He enjoys the fast paced market of the Canary Wharf area and would like to own a fast car to match - an Aston Martin would do.
Tarkan AhmetSenior Sales Negotiator
Tarkan is fluent in Turkish and has a degree in Business Studies and a continuing interest in business and finance. He is widely travelled, once even cycling to Paris, and has plans for further globetrotting, but probably not on a bike.

For him, a daily commitment to excellent client care and communication are key to establishing outstanding business.
