Company History

Our History

jdm Estate Agents was established in 1996 when brothers Jonathon de Maid and Jeremy de Maid left the family business to deliver their own estate agency services in the Borough of Bromley.

The brothers established jdm Estate Agents with the ambition of guiding their clients through the moving process in a friendly and professional manner. jdm Estate Agents pride themselves on providing high standards of service and expert local knowledge to their clients. It is with this ethos that the business has gone from strength to strength, building their reputation on integrity and honesty.

Today, senior partners Jonathon de Maid, Jeremy de Maid and Richard Piddock are supported by a team of over 50 dedicated and experienced members of staff and provide a range of services including residential sales, lettings and land and new homes services across the Borough and into South East London.

  • A buyer in the first week

    I’d been attempting to sell my property through an online only estate agent and whilst I was able to achieve two instructions to purchase none of these went to exchange. I felt that it was the lack lustre approach taken by the online agency that led to the lack of progress. I turned to JDM as I had met them when they originally valued the property and was impressed by their polite and professional manner. I only wish I went with them straight away. We got a buyer in the first week and where JDM stood out was their commitment to see the sale through. JDM dealt with all required access to the property, liaised with the buyer referring any matters to me promptly and were readily available. I really felt supported by them and would have no hesitation in using them again.

  • First Time Buyer

    It was always going to be difficult purchasing a house as a first time buyer. Andrew and the team were so helpful and made the process so much easier than anticipated. Would highly recommend their services!

  • Couldn't Recommend Highly Enough

    Let my property with JDM for 2 years after I moved abroad, they were very helpful throughout the whole process, kept me informed, inspected the premises regularly and managed the whole arbitration process (achieving a positive result for me) when there was a deposit dispute after the tenants moved out. I've just sold the property through them and, again, couldn't fault them. They did a great job of keeping me updated, liaising with the buyers regularly, answering my queries promptly and ensuring everything went as smoothly as it could. Felt they really cared about me and acting in my best interests.
