JLL makes key hire in North West residential team following strong year

Former Cushman & Wakefield partner to spearhead further growth for residential advisory team 

February 20, 2020

JLL has appointed a new head of residential advisory for its north west office, as its client roster continues to flourish.

James Lockwood will oversee the team’s secured lending and valuation advisory services, residential consultancy, affordable housing, and retirement living offer.

He will be building on existing relationships with major bank lenders, developers and registered providers, and brings experience in national student housing valuation to the team.

Steve Hogg, JLL north west’s lead director, said: “The residential advisory team has had a strong year, with our build-to-rent valuation advice in particular being increasingly sought after.

“We’ve provided advice for both investor and development finance, advising high-profile clients such as Renaker, Town Centre Securities, Barclays, HSBC and Wells Fargo.

“James joins us at an exciting time, and I’m confident his expertise will help to propel the team even further forward.”

James has joined from Cushman & Wakefield, where he was based for over six years. Initially joining as associate director, he was later promoted to partner in the residential valuation, development and agency department. He was also one of the lead partners for student valuation and advisory nationally.

James added: “JLL has a global reputation for excellence, and its north west office is no different. I’m very much looking forward to working with such a highly regarded team in the region, and to connecting with its dynamic client base.”

As well as advising Barclays on a major new Warrington scheme, JLL’s north west residential valuation team has also recently worked with Your Housing on a number of build-to-rent projects in Liverpool. The team also recently advised Transport for Greater Manchester on Stockport Exchange.
