James Stevenson

James StevensonDirector

James was born and raised in Sale, has lived in the city centre for several years and is now a resident of Chorlton, so knows Manchester very well. Starting his career with a large national agent 14 years ago, James moved on to a smaller independent a few year later, combining the positive aspects of both to establish Stevenson Whyte in 2008. Whilst setting up the company James was also completing a 5 year degree in building surveying meaning that he could combine his love of property with extensive technical knowledge. Now a proud father of two young children, in his free time, when he's not trying to catch up on huge amounts of lost sleep, he likes to try his hand at baking and attempt to tame the garden at home.
