    THE DAVID LEE STORY

    The company was born when David Kirby and Lee O'Brien, already very successful estate agents, decided to leave the corporate world and open an office that would be independently owned by highly motivated, personable and local young people.

    The first David Lee office was set up in 2004 in Stansted Mountfitchet, a thriving village on the Essex and Hertfordshire border, concentrating on residential property sales. The company soon moved into the private rental market as well, due to the high demand from local landlords who loved the David Lee brand and service. The lettings department grew quickly and soon became an integral part of the business, enabling us to provide the full moving service.

    In January 2010 we opened the doors to our second office in the heart of the delightful market town of Bishop's Stortford. The company already had a large lettings portfolio in Bishop's Stortford so it seemed like a natural progression to service this growing market. Making this move gave us the ability to provide our customers with superb coverage of the local area, with both offices working together as a unified team.

    In January 2016, we opened the third office in our network in the thriving town of Great Dunmow which has allowed the agency to operate over a larger area than ever before.

    David and Lee both live locally and are very active in the community. They keep their fingers on the pulse of all developments in the property world both locally and nationally, to make sure they stay at the top of their game.

    CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
    • Introduction

      We work hard for our clients and there is nothing better than receiving a glowing review of our service, some recent examples are below.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional and friendly service
      Enormously impressed with the professional and friendly service from Sam and all of the team at David Lee in Bishops Stortford. Penny Pritchard
    • Seller Testimonial

      extensive knowledge
      Most of our friends thought we were mad putting our house on the market with a 3 week old baby but the staff at David Lee were unbelievably confident that our property would sell quickly due to their extensive knowledge of the local market and more importantly, what their buyers were looking for. True to form after 1 week of marketing and 20+ viewings, we received 4 offers and eventually sold for just under 10% above our asking price and exchanged contracts just 11 weeks later. The end result has made a huge difference to our new family and we can't thank or recommend David Lee enough for all the hard work and effort they put in throughout the process. Thank you again to Lee, David, Sophie, Megan, Chris and the whole team. Mr and Mrs Collar-Brown
    • Seller Testimonial

      very impressed with the service
      We were very impressed with the service from David Lee from marketing our property to finalising the sale. Their marketing process was very efficient and the photos and brochure of our property produced by David Lee were excellent. The staff were very friendly, helpful and responded to our phone calls! The whole process of selling our property was pain free thanks to their professional approach. We would highly recommend them. Mr and Mrs Williams
    • Seller Testimonial

      they give truly excellent service
      I would not hesitate to recommend David Lee estates, I have always found them to be nothing but professional and also very friendly, and they give truly excellent service. Mrs N Fenner
    • Seller Testimonial

      simply first class
      Everything that was promised, anticipated & predicted in our initial meeting with Lee actually happened. David Lee's recommendations on market value variances, buyer mentality and market landscape knowledge was simply first class. Throughout the process they remained consistant and swift with feedback, updates & results. I would highly recommend and greatly endorse using David Lee if you want an honest, professional and results orientated property sales experience.  Mr N Maley
    • Seller Testimonial

      professional attitude and sensible advice
      Having seen 4 agents to discuss our circumstances and valuation, David Lee were our choice because of the personal service, professional attitude and sensible advice. Mrs Hunnable
    • Seller Testimonial

      Keep up the good work!
      I used Lee for the sale of my property in Chantry Road, Bishops Stortford. Throughout the process I was impressed with Lee's professionalism, enthusiasm and attention to detail. I will and always do recommend Lee and his company - Keep up the good work! Mr N Hyde
    • Seller Testimonial

      Job well done!
      Thank you Lee for selling my investment property. You and your colleagues were very professional and your communication was excellent. My calls were always returned and you were always updating me. You secured a very reliable buyer and we achieved the correct market price. Job well done! Mr and Mrs Bradshaw
    • Seller Testimonial

      Utterly fantastic...
      Firstly, I should say we (my wife and I) sold our first home together through David Lee, and specifically a combination of Max (no longer with David Lee) and Sophie, assisted ably by Meg. They were utterly fantastic - providing a continued and calm reassuring presence throughout the process. Explaining feedback, really understanding the type of people who would be interested in our house and marketing it sensitively. My wife and I then had an absolute nightmare trying to buy somewhere through other local agents. I won't name them here, but one in particular was incredibly difficult to deal with and we saw two properties fall through before David Lee recommended that we went to see a property they had on their books. Again, knowing the type of home we were moving from, the house the suggested was almost tailor made for us. After our offer was accepted, they provided clear and consistent communications through Chris in the Bishop's Stortford office which suggested they were always keeping a close eye on the progress of the chain. It has been a long process, none of which can be laid at the feet of David Lee who have been absolutely brilliant throughout. Thank you so much once again. Mr and Mrs Horrax
    • Seller Testimonial

      I cannot recommend them enough
      I have dealt with many estate agents over the years but I can honestly say that David Lee have been one of the best. Lee O'Brien came round last October to take photos of our house and we said that we didn't want the property marketed just yet as we had not found anywhere to purchase. He was brilliant. He didn't harass us at all and would call us every now and again just to check how things were going. I thought they were professional and we didn't feel pushed at all in marketing our property. When however we made the call, they were brilliant. Within a couple of hours the property was on the website and an open day was arranged for the following week. I cannot recommend them enough. They have been fantastic from beginning to end. Very highly recommended. Mrs Taylorson
    • Seller Testimonial

      a pleasure to deal with and get the job done.
      Selling and buying houses is not an easy or quick process, however, David Lee Estates, largely Chris Ord (who has been my main contact) has made the process as straight forward, clear and unstressful I think as it could be. He has most importantly kept my buyers happy while I looked for my perfect property, answered my questions (of which there have been quite a few), showed remarkable patience while I viewed the property many times and kept me informed regularly of where the process was at. I would also like to say a big thank you to the rest of the team who all have been a pleasure to deal with: Meg, Max (no longer with David Lee), Sam and Sophie. If you want a proactive Estate Agency who know the market, are a pleasure to deal with and get the job done - I would recommend David Lee. Ms Hunt
    • Seller Testimonial

      very professional and excellent communication
      Thank you Lee for selling my investment property. You and your colleagues were very professional and your communication was excellent. My calls were always returned and you were always updating me. You secured a very reliable buyer and we achieved the correct market price. Job well done! Mr Bradshow
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would highly recommend
      Big thanks to Chris and the team for the dealing with the sale and purchase of our property. Would highly recommend. Mr Collier

    • Buyer Testimonial

      simple, helpful, honest, efficient and enjoyable
      David Lee Estate Agents offer a professional transparent selling or buying service. The David Lee team make your experience simple, helpful, honest, efficient and enjoyable. Deborah Dobson
    • Buyer Testimonial

      support provided by the whole team
      Recently I purchased a property through David Lee. As a first time buyer, the process was rather daunting however the support provided by the whole team was excellent, and meant that I was constantly reassured. Unfortunately, through no fault of the agents, we encountered several issues which slowed down the purchase - however Chris Ord, my key contact at the Bishops Stortford office, was always available to help me push the process along and to answer my many many questions. I would recommend them to any vendor/buyer. Grace Taylor
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Adam Chalk has worked liked a dynamo
      l regularly buy and sell house's and as such deal with lots of different Estate Agents the majority of the time most of them are not worth their fee's. On the contrary Adam Chalk has worked liked a dynamo, he has kept me informed at all times and answered my many queries' he even return's all my calls! Chased up different clients and actually pushed everything forward, ending up with acquiring a property for me, that l would have lost. He is an asset to any office that he works within in this difficult market Adam Shine's. Peter Lee
    • Buyer Testimonial

      thoroughly positive experience all round
      I would definately recommend Lee and David Lee Estate Agents in general, everyone in the office i dealt with had knowledge of my transaction which made obtaining updates at each stage of the process very easy. I would have total confidence in them if i were selling my house through them. I purchased through David Lee in July 2010 and had a thoroughly positive experience all round. Mr S Kersey
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Good solid service and no stalking - thanks
      We are just about to complete on the purchase of our first house in Bishop's Stortford, we used an estate agent to sell our property local to us and the communication from David Lee was more professional and relevant than the agent local to us dealing with our sale. Max and Chris kept us updated with progress but did not hound us like other estate agents - buying and selling a house is the most stressful thing a person can do so I appreciated not being stalked by agents! We were extremely lucky with our purchase as David Lee contacted us before the house went up for sale, knowing that we had soled our house with nothing in the pipeline so a benefit for us as well as them. Max the agent was kind and professional and definitely understood how much we wanted the house. During the legalities Chris kept us informed and did not cause any issues with the communication we had directly with the homeowner, I also understand that David Lee has been very helpful to the homeowner who is an elderly lady finding the process stressful. Good solid service and no stalking - thanks! Mrs Wilkes
    • Buyer Testimonial
