“I have bought and sold through Jamie, with great results, and been impressed with his professionalism, sound advice and ability. I look forward to further dealings with Jamie and wish him every success with his consultancy.”
Chairman, United Autosports
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jamie for well over 20 years, as he has played a huge part in the Goodwood-Bonhams relationship since the Festival of Speed began. Jamie has always been very focussed on the customer and delivering a great result for everyone, and I know everyone here at Goodwood, has very much enjoyed the relationship. His knowledge, not only of historic and important motor cars, but also how the whole market works, is enormous. Jamie must be one of the most experienced experts in this particular field anywhere in the world. I wish him all the very best of luck with his new enterprise, which I am sure will be a huge success.”
The Duke of Richmond and Gordon
"About the same time as Jamie set out on his Brooks/Bonhams career, I began building my legal practice in collector cars. During the next three decades Jamie was always my first port of call at Bonhams to discuss a transaction or a problem. Easygoing, open, friendly, professional and never afraid when appropriate to tell me if I'd been mis-informed."
Lawyer, Bennion Law Limited
"It's rare in a museum career that one finds oneself taking a large number of items to the open market but a major review of the car collection in 2003 meant just that. Jamie was invaluable in bringing just the right balance of professionalism, enthusiasm and sensitivity to a unique sale. And, as always, Jamie brought his calm approach, pragmatism and disarmingly dry wit, all of which I've come to know and enjoy over many years of working with him."
Head of Collections
British Motor Industry Heritage Trust
“I’ve know Jamie from his early days at Brooks, and always enjoyed both his company and his expertise. I then got to know him better when we both served on the advisory council of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, where his experience and knowledge meant that I was always grateful for his opinion and advice.”
Musician and committed car enthusiast
"Our family decided to sell a significant motor car that had been in the family for many years. We assessed several agents but as soon as we met Jamie, we knew he was the right person to handle the sale for us. His knowledge and professionalism made an immediate impact, and we very much appreciated his candour. He fulfilled every promise made and handled an emotional sale with a great deal of sensitivity. We were delighted with the result and extremely grateful to Jamie for representing our interests.”

"I first worked with Jamie more than 25-years ago. From handling the sale of cars like Jaguar E2A and my C-Type to helping me with my recent interest in more everyday collector cars, he has always taken care of me in a friendly, professional and fully-transparent manner. I’m always impressed by his wealth of knowledge no matter what the car. I look forward to continuing to work with Jamie in his new consultancy role."
Penny Woodley, Collector and Jaguar Historian
"I gave Jamie his first motoring job in 1984. From that beginning he earned his place as a full board director on absolute merit. In fact he so kept me on my toes for 35 years that the only way I could shake him off was to sell the business in 2018!“
