Edinburgh and Glasgow based Watermans has appointed Darren and Alistair Lee to its board of directors with the remit of spearheading the expansion of its property offering throughout Scotland.
The father-and-son duo have built up an enviable reputation as two of the most active estate agents in the west of Scotland and will work alongside Tzana Webster who has also been appointed a director of the company’s estate agency division.
Scott Whyte, Watermans’ managing director at Watermans, says: “I am delighted to welcome Darren and Alistair to the Watermans team. We already had a long-standing working relationship with them, and when the opportunity arose to bring them into the business, it was a no-brainer.
“Their arrival will complement the fantastic work that Tzana Webster has done in significantly growing our Estate Agency business over the last 15 months. This will also allow us to progress our wider objective of growing the business throughout Scotland.
“I know Darren and Alistair can’t wait to get started, and I am excited to see the further progress this move will allow us to make in the remainder of this year and beyond.”
Darren and Alistair Lee join Watermans from Keller Williams where they established themselves as one of the UK’s top estate agency teams, and as one of Scotland’s leading performers.
“From the moment I met Scott, I knew his company was going places,” says Darren Lee. “It is evident that Watermans is a business with a huge vision.
“The management team encourage everyone to bring their aspirations to the table, and it is this group ambition that helps propel the business forward. Everyone works together to ensure that their clients receive the best service possible – and to work with a proactive legal team is refreshing.”
Alistair Lee adds: “Watermans pride themselves on providing straightforward advice,” he added. “No jargon, no fluff, just great service and getting the job done – and that’s what I am all about.
“A huge advantage of joining Watermans is that I won’t be limited in my pursuit to grow the estate agency side of the business. I won’t be bound by old-fashioned traditions that often come with solicitor estate agents, and I will have the freedom to grow the business in a more modern market.”
