our story

JP & Brimelow first opened for business in Didsbury in February 1998. Born out of frustration working for large corporate estate agents, John Pratt and Nick Brimelow joined forces to open a fully Independent Estate Agency which could offer significantly better levels of service to buyers and sellers alike.

The original plan, scribbled on the back of a beer mat in a pub (!) was simplistic in a view of taking high calibre staff coupled with leading-edge technology and exceptional local knowledge to provide a professional, courteous and knowledgeable operation.

Now with two market leading, centrally located sales offices in Chorlton and Withington, we remain committed to those ideals and true to our original ideas.

Nick Brimelow has now retired from the business in June 2017.

Central located offices enables us to offer our clients an efficient and knowledgeable local service second to none, and whilst we remain small enough to retain our identity, with the advancement in technology we are able to provide a national / international exposure.

We believe we work incredibly hard on behalf of all our clients, but are not complacent and are always looking for ways to improve and develop the core business which has proved such a success to date.

Property credentials to write home about

The JP in JP & Brimelow, John has been based in Withington and the surrounding area for over 25 years. With this in mind, he understands the unique nature of South Manchester and is therefore best placed to market and sell those homes of distinction. Professionalism, experience and enthusiasm towards the property market, make John an exceptional negotiator, whilst always offering the highest levels of customer service available.  Moving with the times, constantly keeping a breast of new technology and working with the local community.

Having sold some of the most individual properties in South Manchester over 20 years, Eddie is 'Mr Chorlton' and has gained both valuable local knowledge and experience when it comes to selling New Build developments throughout South Manchester.
