Meet Adelaide Burgess
Your experienced estate agent in Sovereign Harbour

Agent's photo

Adelaide Burgess is our highly successful branch manager in Eastbourne - a town she was born in and still lives in today.
With such strong links to the town, it is no surprise to learn that Adelaide is an expert on it and the local property market. In particular, she loves Sovereign Harbour and knows all there is to know about the waterside development.
This is extremely useful to many of the branch’s clients who live away from Eastbourne, instead opting to use their Sovereign Harbour property as a second or holiday home.
Adelaide worked for Waterside Properties for nine years prior to it being acquired by Leaders in 2015, and the company had been operating in Sovereign Harbour since it opened in 1993. As such, the branch boasts plenty of valuable experience and knowledge of the harbour and all of the properties within it.
She has the NFOPP Level 3 qualification in the sale of residential property, ensuring she and the team adhere to the very highest standards when it comes to legal responsibilities.
Working alongside Adelaide in the branch is a team of three other property professionals - Nikki, Chris and Jessica.
They work from a smart office next to the Yacht Club, giving them a prime location at the very centre of the harbour.
Adelaide said: “We have a great team, and being in the heart of Sovereign Harbour we have immersed ourselves in the lifestyle that comes with living and working in a marina.
We have a dynamic approach to our business and we deliver a friendly, professional and experienced service whether our clients are selling, buying, letting or renting their marina home. We are passionate about Sovereign Harbour and providing customer service that is second to none.”

What Sovereign Harbour's customers say

We were very pleased with the service provided by Leaders regarding our recent purchase of a property in Sovereign Harbour. It was in fact a prolonged and problematic process due to two buyers in succession pulling out of buying our existing property, but Adelaide and Chris did everything in their power to steer the deal to a satisfactory conclusion. They were competent, professional and committed to reaching a positive outcome for all concerned. We can highly recommend this agency.


Nearly 5 years ago I approached Leaders with a view to renting my Sovereign Harbour flat. As a first time landlord I was delighted with the friendliness and professionalism of Nikki, Adelaide and their teams who guided us through the whole process with Nikki quickly finding us good reliable tenants. After nearly 5 years we decided to sell the flat. The end of tenancy process including the professional cleaning of the flat was handled quickly and efficiently. Then despite the current difficult conditions and thanks to a seamless handover from lettings to sales, Adelaide quickly found a suitable purchaser. I can't thank Leaders Sovereign Harbour enough and would thoroughly recommend them for both rental and sales. John Holmes


Me and my partner first used leaders a month ago when enquiring about getting our first flat together. Nikki was brilliant, she was timely with her replies and she was great with supporting us. It's the first time I've had my own place although my girlfriend has rented before Nikki was helpful and me feel less stressed too. The properties are beautiful in the harbour too so very impressed with everything
