Meet Kay Kennedy
Your experienced estate agent in Hove

Agent's photo

Having started out in the property industry in 2011 in West Sussex, Kay's love of architecture brought her to Brighton in 2014 and she has never looked back! Kay has worked for a number of leading agents over a vast amount of the Sussex area and has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience. When Kay was approached to join the Leaders Brighton Marina team, she jumped at the opportunity, knowing that Leaders also pride themselves on giving a fantastic customer experience as well as being a highly professional and recognised agent. In her spare time, Kay is either walking along the seafront with her dog and a coffee or enjoying the peace and quiet at her stables.

What Hove's customers say

Impeccable service, especially from the wonderful Lara, made my experience with Leaders truly outstanding. We all know how tough the rental market has been lately, with properties being snatched up in the blink of an eye. So, after enduring five or more disappointing phone calls about potential rentals already being taken, I was feeling pretty disheartened. That's when I decided to check out a sales agency on Church Road for some guidance, and boy, am I glad they pointed me to Leaders! As soon as I stepped into their office, I knew I was in for something special. Not only did they immediately offer me the perfect rental option, but they also arranged a viewing and had me signing the papers the very next day. Talk about efficiency and convenience! Now, let me tell you about Lara, the superstar lettings coordinator who made it all happen. She was an absolute pro, providing me with thorough information, ensuring I understood every detail, and patiently answering all my questions (and trust me, I had plenty!). But what really set her apart was her kindness, humor, and genuine excitement when we viewed the property together. It felt like she was celebrating my happiness alongside me, and it made the whole experience even more memorable. Leaders truly struck gold with Lara—a kind, energetic, and knowledgeable professional. Thank you Leaders, but thank YOU Lara!


I’m so glad that I got Leaders lettings in my property finding process, Their knowledge and experience, combined with their patient approach made this, Especially we appreciate our lovely Agent LARA who is excellent on her role who treated and handled us with lots of patience and kindness only because of her I feel this process went smooth and successful. I highly recommend Leaders to anyone looking for top-notch lettings services!”


Myself and two friends have just recently gone through the process of acquiring a flat to rent through Leaders and the process has been really refreshing. We've been consistently communicated with clearly and the team, specifically Lara have been so available to answer questions and always answer the phone. They've also been patient with delays around our references and haven't been pushy, but also given clear deadlines and information on next steps. Thank you Lara and the team! We're looking forward to renting with you.
