This is an email to say how amazing Bianca was through out my tenancy! We had a house fire and Bianca was there straight away and stayed through out the whole event on the phone to everyone and anyone she needed to even though it was the end of my tenancy anyway. The support and the help I have received from Bianca was brilliant throughout and over a week later she was still supportive and keeping me informed in everything! Can’t thank her enough and would defiantly recommend working with Bianca again! Thank you for all your support and help.

Charlotte M – November 2017

From the minute we phoned Hopkins and Partners, we were impressed by the swift response and value that was given to us. As we began proceedings in selling our house, the detail to service continued. We were informed regularly and given advice and reassurance as the property was on the market. James Hopkins clearly cares about his clients and genuinely wants to ensure that properties are sold as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Deciding to sell a property is a huge decision for a family, but the team at Hopkins (James and Bianca in particular) made sure that it wasn’t a stressful one. We would like to thank the team at Hopkins and Partners for all of their work and would certainly recommend their services.

Angela and Victoria – November 2017

Over the past 4 years Hopkins Estate Agents have dealt with the letting and most recently the sale of my flat in Eastbourne. I can’t thank James and Bianca enough for making both processes so easy for me. They were always available for advice, guidance and dealt with everything so efficiently. They are both so friendly, reliable and professional I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Thank you.

Debbie K – November 2017

Absolutely delighted with the service Hopkins Estate Agents and Lettings. I’ve just brought my first home from them – and James couldn’t have been more helpful – recommending mortgage advisors, solicitors and helping to smooth the transition. James helped me find the perfect place – unlike other agents who were happy to show me anything – regardless of how unsuitable it was. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Mr S Holt, Eastbourne – November 2017

We would like to thank you for all you have done for us in the sale of our property leading up to completion yesterday. Your guidance and help was much appreciated, keeping us well informed at all stages of the negotiations, something that we would highly recommend. Not only the sale of our property but as important, 5 years of managing the property by Bianca and yourself in such a professional way. After a phone call to us and the go ahead any problems were soon acted upon.

Mr & Mrs Neve, Eastbourne – July 2017

Hopkins Estate Agents provided an efficient and personal service for the sale of our property. We received regular updates without having to chase and always felt that we were Hopkins most important customer. All this and very competitive fees on top. We would not hesitate in using Hopkins again for any property transactions within their catchment area. It has been a pleasure to work with you James. All the very best for the successful development of your agency.

Martin C – Stratford, London

Just a courtesy note to let you know that we have now sold our property. You’ll remember that this was my late Fathers and it was always our desire to sell. However, whilst the sales market was in such a state and given my background, I always thought Letting was a good option. What I didn’t know was the local agents in Eastbourne! However, with hindsight, I think I made a good decision to instruct your good selves. I’ve found you and your team to be very professional and have been pleased with pretty much all aspects of your service. So may I take this opportunity to say a big Thank you. It certainly made life easier knowing that Dad’s property was in such good hands. Please pass on my thanks to your team.

Totally happy and satisfied with the way Hopkins & Partners run their business and cannot fault their professionalism.

Mr Nash

We will recommend you to everyone. Mrs Langdon

We will tell everyone in the (Hurstmonceux) village about it, so unexpected. Mrs Plumb

Thanking you for being such caring and attentive managing agent. I wish you well for the future. I am sure James is aware that you are a real asset to his business.


James was recommended to me by a friend to whom I was telling, in desperation, how my property had been on the market for over two months with a very disappointing estate agent who only managed a handful of viewings and one single offer well below the asking price. I instructed James and within one week he had found me the perfect buyers. Barely a month later the sale has now been completed for an excellent price, above my expectations. Throughout the process James has been courteous, prompt, professional, reliable and efficient. Most important of all he has been effective! Achieving a better result than I hoped for in record time and without any fuss. A pleasure to deal with I have no hesitation in praising him and recommending his services.


Hopkins & Partners were fantastic helping us buy our new home. We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them.

Mr & Mrs W, Langney, Eastbourne

Hopkins & Partners was the best choice we made when looking for a service that gave that much more. Apart from the professionalism, they showed us a friendly and efficient service. Easily contactable and always answering any question or query quickly. A service we would recommend wholeheartedly.

Having used James’ services to locate a property to rent I found him to be very professional and he couldn’t have done more to assist me. He was able to turn around what normally could be a lengthy process in a matter of days and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Maxine R, Eastbourne

Everyone who comes into contact with James leaves with the same impression and that is he is a friendly, dependable and effective estate agent providing an excellent service to his clients and customers.

James is a client, and a business associate of mine. He is passionate about his work, and always strives to offer the best service at a competitive price. He has the experience and qualifications to fulfill his role. James is also very generous with his time, in helping others succeed too.

Sue VH, Seaford

I have been dealing with Hopkins & Partners for several months now on my rental property in the Eastbourne area on a full management basis. Hopkins came highly recommended to me by a family member who has several buy to let properties in Eastbourne. Hopkins found me a most suitable tenant after only 2 weeks and I was most impressed with the careful screening process that was applied prior to letting my property. I have found James and Bianca always to be most charming and professional in my dealings with them, nothing I ask is ever too much trouble and most importantly, my rental payment always arrives on time. I would not hesitate in recommending Hopkins & Partners to any prospective landlord or tenant, they have always been an absolute pleasure to deal with.

James D, Brighton

Hopkins & Partners, in particular Bianca Cocklin, Lettings Negotiator, provide a friendly and thoroughly professional service, and are the best agents I’ve dealt with whilst renting a property, dealing with issues in a timely manner and being upfront and honest with me. I have been a very satisfied tenant and would happily recommend them for their efficient service especially for the prompt return of my full deposit. Keep up the good work.

Dear Sir / Madam

I have used Hopkins & Partners letting service since 2009. I decided to use James for the exemplary service and package of which he offered. James and Bianca always offer service with a smile and have the best interest of both the client and tenant at heart. They will do whatever it takes to ensure that all parties are happy. Since I started using Hopkins & Partners in 2009 I have seen a marked improvement in the occupancy rates within my large portfolio of both residential and commercial properties. The rent is always on time. On the very rare occasion that there is an issue, James jumps to action and ensures it is rectified as a matter of urgency!

James and Bianca have developed an excellent set of organisational skills, I see them as a very efficient partnership, whom offer a first class service for a competitive rate. Having met with other agents and having used some of them, I have been so completely satisfied with the service offered by Hopkins & Partners and would recommend them top any potential Landlord, or tenant alike.

Jürgen Matthes

For some years we have been using James and Bianca at Hopkins & Partners. They offer an unbeatable service matched by a competitive price! James and co. offer a comprehensive service, which to us is unbeatable. The rent is collected on time, our extensive portfolio rarely has vacancies and if they are … it’s never for long! Their service is always prompt, well managed and above all trustworthy. Whenever any issues arise, whether they be maintenance or non-payment of rent, James jumps into action to get the issue sorted, and does so immediately, James and Bianca offer a 5* service, which we highly recommend!

Cllr. Tom Liddiard, Flat & Office Rental

In short, Hopkins & Partners are quite exceptional.I have repeatedly worked with James on a number of commercial matters and have always been most impressed by the James’ professionalism, commercial acumen, efficiency and attention to detail, which quite frankly, many would claim to be unexpected from a commercial agent! James has a truly a high-caliber team and in tandem with James’ knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the business community, James and Hopkins & Partners have always been a major influence in driving commercial matters/lettings through to a swift completion

James, I would just like to thank you & the team for continually offering me a faultless service in every department. As a landlord with a portfolio of properties, to which you actively manage them all for some years now, your company gives me so much peace of mind & that is paramount to me, thank you. Your understanding of business is obvious & I also appreciate your reciprocal custom to my business

Mike W

I recently met James at the Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting. He impressed with his knowledge of his Industry and eagerness to be involved with activities that benefited the community. Hopkins and Partners was the FIRST Estate Agent to show their support for BUY LOCAL. Well done James I look forward to working with you for many years to come.
