Agent's photo

With more than 15 years of experience to her name, Simone is the ideal person to let your property or find you a home to rent.
She has worked at the branch in Colchester for over eight years, initially at More Estates before it was acquired by Leaders in January 2016. As a result, her knowledge of Colchester and the local property market is second to none. Prior to being promoted to the role of Lettings Manager, Simone carried out a variety of other jobs in the property industry, from Lettings Negotiator to Senior Negotiator, Lettings Manager and Assistant Branch Manager. She heads up a team of enthusiastic and skilled property professionals including three Lettings Negotiators and an Administrator.
All the team are committed to delivering high-quality customer service that allows those looking to let a property in Colchester to achieve their aims.
Simone says: “Colchester is a wonderful place to live and work with a wealth of culture and history. “My team and I are always eager to offer the highest levels of customer service to landlords and tenants in order to make their experience in the lettings market a pleasant one.”

What Colchester's customers say

I'm a landlord renting out my flat with leaders. They have quickly found suitable, reliable tenants if the property becomes vacant. If there are any problems that arise with the tenants or flat they let me know straight away and send their contractor out if I require it. I feel they provide an excellent service to me and at the same time care about the flat and the tenant in it. I have found Rob Perry to be particularly helpful, he is always there to answer any questions I have and often goes out of his way to sort things out. Rob has a lot of experience and knowledge as a letting agent. I would not hesitate to recommend Leaders Colchester.


Leaders Colchester took over a previous company I was using called Essex & Suffolk Lettings and I was pleased to hear with this takeover they would be transferring their top people to join the new company. I have found the service continued to be excellent thanks part to dealing with the same people I was dealing with before. One name stands out for giving professional and responsive service and that is Julie Preston in their Lettings department. I would also like to say all Leaders employees offer excellent service. I have no hesitation in recommending Leaders to any landlord looking for an excellent letting agent.


People often wonder what estate agents do to earn their not inconsiderable fees. Samantha and her team at Leaders showed me by seeing my property sale through in a very professional and supportive way. They have a clear and up to date knowledge of the market and advised and guided me to a satisfactory completion. They always kept in touch during some uncertain moments and have a personable but genuine style. I am still not convinced that the general level of agents' fees are justified but Leaders aren't the most expensive that I've seen and their service is far better than others I have dealt with in the area.
