"Our story begins in Surrey..."

About Us

The business was established in 1989 by Robert Leech. He was joined by Paul Dixon in 1993, who set up Private Estates, which deals with sales and acquisitions of property in the middle to top end of the market. Both Robert and Paul were previously Directors of national estate agency chains and both are past Presidents of the Auctioneers & Surveyors Association in Surrey. They have extensive contacts across the home counties, London as well as globally.


The agency operates from three closely linked and strategically placed  high street offices in Surrey, working closely as a team handling not only prime residential sales, but with specialist departments dealing with lettings, land, development and new homes sales, equestrian and country estates.


Global v Private Marketing – You Decide


In a world where the explosion of Internet information seems unstoppable, an increasing number of clients to not want to bare the soul of their property by ‘going on line’. They do not want to publicise their location or price on property portals, or for neighbours to ‘view’ the colour of their bedrooms. These clients strive for confidentiality. This has created off-market opportunities, where sellers and buyers are matched discreetly. If the mass market does not appeal, this personal service is designed for you.
