About Our Office

Founded in 1991, C James & Co Tooting is probably one of Tooting’s longest established, solely independent estate agents.  We are a small, boutique agency so our clients really receive a truly personal service.  Stuart is the founder of the branch and has many decades experience of sales and lettings, and there is little he doesn’t know about the industry.  Stuart is available 24/7 for his clients, whether out of office hours or even contactable on his home phone if needed!  As a client you will deal solely with Stuart with support from his team, but Stuart will always be your first point of contact.  He can deal with complex sales and issues and this is why many of his clients return to him when they resell their property.
If you want a personal, non-corporate relationship with your estate agent, then C James Tooting is the agent for you!

Meet the Tooting Team

Lucy Murray

Accounts Manager

I started out in B2B marketing, then fell into residential inventory work before giving up work to raise three children.  In 2023 I joined the C James team and I manage all rents and payments.  I live in North Devon with my family and four dogs – all three breeds of Schnauzers!

My free time: happiest cooking or eating out

Top property tip: Have realistic expectations about what your property is worth, if the valuation seems too good to be true, it probably is!

Stuart Murray


I have been working as an estate agent in the Tooting area for 35 years with 33 as the proprietor of C James & Co.  I still love the job and enjoy interacting with vendors and landlords, purchasers and tenants.  I enjoy feeling I have made a difference to people’s lives and most of my business is word of mouth or repeat business. I have not had to send a leaflet out in decades to attract customers.  We are truly the longest running independent agency in the area and in fact one of the only independents left.

My hobbies are reading.  I have collection of nearly two thousand books ranging from novels to biographies, history to crime.  I am married with three children and four dogs that I enjoy walking with.  I have a love of music although my wife would dispute what I have on my old 50’s vintage Jukebox is music.

Advice to a seller. Choose an agent you feel comfortable with and do not be blinded by unrealistic valuations.

Bernice Haughton

Lettings Management Administrator

I have been with C James & Co for 3 years now,  dealing with sales, lettings and property management. I grew up in Tooting and still live locally.   I went to Smallwood Primary and Garratt Green Girls Secondary, I also studied Accounting and Administration at South Thames College Tooting. I enjoy my work, meeting and greeting Clients, keeping busy and having a good work-life balance.

The best part for me is handing over the keys to a new purchaser or a new tenant and knowing the joy this gives.

I have 2 grown up daughters who I spend a lot of time with, socialising, cooking, shopping and watching movies.

Charles Basto

Lettings Manager

I have been with C James for about five years having started as a part time team member and have worked my way up to the position of Lettings Manager.  I really enjoy the diversity of the job; meeting different people, different properties and each day is different.  When I am not working, I enjoy walking in the open spaces Tooting has to offer and living with my two cats.

Property advice; If you have a maintenance issue, always be sure to report it straight away, as tenants have a duty of care.  If an issue worsens, you could become financiallly liable in part.
