The history of Leaders

Founded in 1983 by the late Neville Lee OBE, Leaders began as a single branch in Brighton. Since then, the company has become known for its first-class customer service and exceptional knowledge of the property market and local area.

Rapid expansion throughout the South of England meant Leaders quickly celebrated its 25th and 50th branch openings – and by acquiring reputable businesses up and down the country, the team at Leaders has now brought its expertise and customer service to new towns and cities across the UK. There are now Leaders branches across the South East, London, South West, East Midlands, East Anglia and North West. 

In 2016 Leaders joined forces with sister company, Romans, combining both companies’ expertise in lettings, sales, new homes, mortgage advisory services and on offer. Leaders and Romans originally made up the Leaders Romans Group, which is backed by Bowmark Capital LLP. The Group has annual revenues of over £100m, and more than 125 branches across the UK.

As the Leaders Romans Group grows, it remains committed to exceptional customer service. All the branches are staffed by qualified and knowledgeable local property experts who embrace the Leaders ethos of providing a professional, high-quality and personal service.
