New to James Gibb

James Gibb residential factors has over 100 employees whose experience spans many years in residential, commercial and retirement property management. We have created a team with various backgrounds and knowledge in property management and factoring.

Our directors have great knowledge and experience across all aspects of our industry and in all areas of business. We pride ourselves in being the fastest growing property management and factoring business in the country.

Due to the high customer service and customer satisfaction levels we achieve, our growth continues to be large scale. We identified a niche in a very outdated market and have applied ourselves to making a difference by ‘doing it the right way’.

We are a people organisation, built on core customer care values and have a passion to deliver services to the highest possible standard at minimal cost.

Working with our customers, we aim to develop a bespoke property management specification to suit unique requirements. All buildings are different, and all require quite different approaches to facility management.
