Leaders was established in Brighton in 1983 as a single branch letting agency by the late Neville Lee, OBE, who was also co-founder of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA).
Having spent time living in India and renting out his home while he was away, Neville knew exactly what landlords wanted when it came to a letting service.
At the time, standards in lettings were very low and he was appalled by them. He had also spent 10 years working for a sales and letting agent in London and believed he could improve the industry by establishing both a regulatory body (ARLA) and his own letting agency, through which he would lead the way by providing the highest standards of service and integrity.
A Successful start
In the very first week, Leaders took on two landlords and let two properties, and the rest, as they say, is history! Demand for Leaders’ quality service grew and additional branches were opened.
Paul Weller, Neville Lee’s son-in-law, joined Leaders in 1992 as Financial Controller and by 1995 Leaders had opened branches in Horsham, Portsmouth, Fareham, Burgess Hill and Southampton.
