Board of directors

Robert Holmes BSc MRICS – A local man through and through, with an unrivalled knowledge of the area. Robert has lived in or near the village for most of his life and, during this time, has come to be regarded as the authority on property matters in the Wimbledon area. He sits on a number of local committees and advises on others.

John Khaje’Nouri ANAEA has been with the Company since 1992 having worked previously in Central London. He and his family have lived on Coombe Hill for many years and he is therefore particularly knowledgeable about that area.

Susan Cornelius joined the company in 1987 after a spell working in London.  She has long family associations with Wimbledon and has lived in the Village for many years.  This, together with the fact that her children have attended local schools, gives her a comprehensive, hands-on, practical knowledge of what the locality has to offer for all generations.


John Collard LLB FNAEA was a director of the Company until December 2013 and now works part time as a Consultant. He is a law graduate and before joining Robert Holmes & Co. he had extensive experience of residential property matters, having worked in Central and South West London for the last 40 years. He is also an active Trustee of the charity Beating Bowel Cancer www.beatingbowelcancer.org.
