After more than 30 years in Brighton and Hove, Leaders has expanded into an exciting new world of property following the recent acquisition of Waterside Properties.

The move brings Leaders into the niche market of properties in exclusive waterside locations, with a new branch in Brighton Marina, as well as branches in Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne; Ocean Village in Southampton; and Gunwharf Quays and Port Solent in Portsmouth.

Leaders will now be able to assist customers in selling and letting luxury houses and apartments in stunning waterside locations along the south coast, including harbours, rivers and the English Channel.

Claire Weston, Leaders’ Sussex area manager, said: “Waterside Properties has been extremely successful in this unique, niche market and we are excited to now be a part of it.

“The majority of Waterside staff have joined us, including Mark Philpot who heads up the knowledgeable team at Brighton Marina. They bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise in this market which will be of great benefit to us and our clients.

“Just as importantly, the team is renowned for the friendly and caring approach they take to all property matters. This is all credit to branch manager Mark Philpot, who can take great pride in the exceptional service on offer at Brighton Marina.

“We look forward to working with all of the staff and our new customers as we become the first port of call for anyone looking to buy, sell, let or rent a property in prime waterside locations. All clients can be sure that the team truly care about Brighton Marina and are ready to share their expertise.”

Commenting on the acquisition, Brighton Marina branch manager Mark Philpot said: “We are delighted to be a part of Leaders, which has built up an excellent reputation in Brighton and Hove and has four well established branches in the city.

“We share its commitment to providing a high-quality customer service that is personalised to each individual and nothing will change for our clients except that, as part of a larger property firm, we are now able to draw on the knowledge, training and expertise of colleagues who are experts in complex issues such as client accounting, tax, lettings law and compliance, training, marketing and IT.

“This will allow me and my team to focus on what is most important: providing a personal and tailored service to our clients here in Brighton Marina. We are looking forward to successfully doing so under the Leaders name for many years to come.”

Following the acquisition, all five of the Waterside Properties branches have been rebranded to display the Leaders name. Waterside Properties will continue to operate its franchise model in other waterside locations and its successful boat brokerage service.

Anybody who is interested in investing in a waterside property, either as a home or as a buy-to-let project, or simply wishes to find a place to live by the sea, should take advantage of the expertise and local knowledge on offer from the team at Brighton Marina.
