What Southend-on-Sea's customers say

Very grateful to Michael and Tom for all their help getting us into our property. They were very proactive and happily answered my constant questions I phoned and emailed with. Thanks for getting us in our new home so fast. We couldn’t be happier here and with all the help from Leaders.


Made our move really easy. Thomas was extremely helpful and friendly as were all the staff that we dealt with. Quick replies to emails, very accommodating with times and dates and overall a fantastic experience.


We were a UK Family returning from a long period living overseas which meant we were unable to tick all of the boxes regarding tenancy. Of all the Estate agents listed locally the only one willing to go all out and help us with accommodation was Leaders, Southend. We have been with them now for over three years and are happy to remain with them. We communicate mostly with Louise at Leaders PMD. Asked would I recommend Leaders Southend…..Indeed I would !
