In September 2001 business partners Nick James and Peter Moginie founded Moginie James, opening our first branch in Albany Road.
The determined duo worked tirelessly long days, seven days a week to make the company a success. Nick even borrowed a car to complete property viewings for the first six months as a way to minimise costs.
Within 18 months a second branch was opened, located in Cathays, which was dedicated to the lettings side of the business. By 2007 further branches were opened in Cyncoed and Cardiff Bay, and in 2013 Moginie James was voted ‘Best Small Chain Estate Agents in the UK’ at the esteemed Estate Agent Awards.
In 2014 we opened our fifth branch, based in Pontcanna, while in the same year were named ‘Cardiff Estate Agent of the Year’ in the prestigious Cardiff Life Awards.
On top of a redevelopment of the brand, which including the creation of our super branches by merging our Cathays branch with our Roath branch and our Cardiff Bay branch with our Pontcanna branch, 2016 also saw departments for Auctions as well as Land and New Homes introduced into the business. All the while, Moginie James ranked in the top 1% of all Estate Agents in the UK based on customer service.
2017 saw the company working tirelessly to introduce new and innovative functionality, of particular mention is our digital booking system, which would allow potential buyers and tenants to book their viewings straight into our diary, at their convenience, 24/7. This innovation was an incredible leap forward, with Moginie James being the only high street agency in Cardiff to offer such a tool which serves to benefit vendors and landlords.
Above and beyond this, 2017 saw Moginie James as the most successful independent Estate Agency having sold more properties in the entirety of Cardiff than any other agency in the same category… by a long way.
In 2018 we will continue to deliver new and innovative products which will revolutionise the face of estate agency in Cardiff.
