James Diggins MNAEA - Founder & Director

A Lancashire man through and through, James is the MD of Love Homes, with many years of estate agency experience. Originally launching the business as I Love Park Homes in 2014, James is a very proactive director, working closely side by side with his team. He is involved in all aspects of the business. James' ethos is firmly embedded in the belief that a team who is valued and who feels motivated and appreciated, will be dedicated to delivering exceptional service; after all, the company has 'Love' in its name for a reason!

James is proud of Love Homes for being so much more than an average estate agent and he understands that everyone has a different reason for buying, selling or renting a property. It is this empathetic attitude which has contributed to the business seeing many returning clients and which has inspired so much loyalty in the team.

Outside of the office, James enjoys socialising and can often be found getting creative in the kitchen, ahead of dinner party get togethers. A self-confessed Michael Ball wannabe, James is part of Bury Fire Choir. As well as taking Spanish lessons, James is kept busy by his partner and their dog.
