George Jackson-Stops founded GJS Property with a clear ambition to provide expert advice to those looking to navigate the London property market. Having worked in Central London property for many years, for some of the country’s best known estate agents, George found that communication and a personal approach was key to success and that was not something that was focused on in large firms. Many vendors craved clear, concise, and prompt feedback from a single source. Buyers struggled to find the right property and get honest advice from agents. George could see that they would benefit from a truly independent service to help with the purchase or disposal of what is often their most significant single asset. He therefore made the decision to step away from traditional estate agency and use his experience to partner with those both looking to buy and sell.
George has had a passion for property from an early age. His great-grandfather Herbert Jackson-Stops set up the eponymous estate agent in 1910, following his successful sale of Stowe which was regarded as one of the two great sales of the 20th century. Ever since property has been a family affection and George is now focused on building the next phase of the Jackson-Stops property story.
“George was exceptional throughout the process and worked tirelessly to find the perfect property for us, even managing to save us 7% off the asking price! He was highly professional and diligent throughout, with a personal touch that made a potentially stressful experience as easy as could be hoped for. We would highly recommend his services to anyone.”

“We initially discussed the sale of our London flat with George in order to buy a house in the Cotswolds. George explained to us that due to the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station and the Northern Line extension we should keep our flat and that we could release more equity than we imagined. He put us in touch with a great mortgage broker and also helped us negotiate a fantastic price in the Cotswolds, negotiating a price considerably less than we were prepared to pay. George looks at the bigger picture and doesn’t just look for a quick deal. He gave us invaluable advice and we will use him whenever we sell or buy again.”
