About Us

Bobby Ijaz, Managing Director

Charles Sinclair - Estate & Letting Agents Clapham, South West London

I’ve been managing Charles Sinclair Ltd now for over 10 years. As a born and bred Clapham son I feel very much part of the fabric of life around this area. I treat my business first and foremost as a people business. The people I personally meet and network with are the ones that become clients of ours, whether that would be through our website, bars, restaurants, gym, networking or other social events. Your lifestyle dictates your journey and ultimately where you want to live. Let me buy into YOU, then you can buy, sell or let back through me.



In 1968 two individuals from completely different back grounds got together and formed a company which is now known as Charles Sinclair Ltd.
Teddy Sinclair was an Army Officer, who took early retirement from the British Army when the Korean War ended. Charles Ijaz was a journalist attached to a weekly newspaper known as Asia Weekly. Teddy used to work in Knightsbridge in property and Charles decided to turn his hand to property in Clapham, knowing that his career in journalism was about to end. Charles set up his one man shop and started spreading his enthusiasm for letting. They both met at an office in Beauchamp Place in Knightsbridge. When Teddy had heard about Charles business as he needed help with a client looking for property ‘south of the river’, Teddy was impressed with his service and commitment to work. Teddy was not happy working in Knightsbridge and decided to join Charles in Clapham. Charles helped Teddy get a place off Nightingale Lane and decided to look for an office in Clapham High St. A year later as soon as a newsagent's shop came up for sale, they decided to go buy. They sold the shops stock off and used the money to set up as an Estate & Letting Agent

Teddy was an excellent administrator and managed the accounts and Charles became a natural salesman. They both worked long hours learning and establishing a lettings and property management business. They had the foresight to know that there was good money to be made from renting and this was long before buy to let even existed as a product or label. The business was a success from the start. The business developed into sales hiring a chartered surveyor and then into property development by purchasing run down property, refurbishing and then selling at a profit. Teddy retired in 1998. Charles became a fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and still remains non-executive director. An amicable service & customer satisfaction was always their top priority. Their objective was to build trust among their clients. Testimony to that fact is that many of those clients who gave their properties for management some 30 years ago are still with Charles Sinclair Estate Agents today.
