Since starting out in the property industry in 2009, Scott has attained tremendous knowledge and is the ideal man to help all clients when it comes to realising their ambitions as a tenant or landlord.

Having worked in St Albans for a number of years, he can easily point clients in the right direction, whether they are looking for a property to rent in St Albans or if they wish to make a great return on a buy-to-let investment.

Scott is keen to point out that his colleagues at Leaders in St Albans are undoubtedly the hardest working team he has ever been a part of and he is proud of the incredible dedication they show in their roles each day.

What St Alban's customers say

We searched house to rent in St Albans last week and have met several letting agents. Leaders is the one we found the most professional and responsive. It's not easy to rent a house in St Albans, the market is hot. Leaders is very responsive to arrange a viewing, they communicated well during negotiating, and their online letting system is well developed and hassle free. Eventually we rent a house in St Albans less than a week! Highly recommended!


Leaders are an exceptional team to work with. They have managed my property for many years and are efficient, timely and sensitive. Helen in particular is a pleasure to work with, as are all the team - replying promptly and with attention to detail. I would recommend Leaders to any Landlord or tenant.


We are moving into a new place in a month that we are renting with Leaders and so far Alex has been both patient and helpful at every step from arranging the viewing, to putting forward questions we had about the property and then the steps of the referencing and document signing process. There is a residency scheme that offers all sorts of discounts too. Really appreciate how easy the process has been so far and would recommend leaders!
