About Us

DJ Alexander has offered property services for over 36 years. Founded by David Alexander in 1982, the business has grown organically through client recommendations and, with offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow, we are now the largest agency in Central Scotland.


Here are a few facts about DJ Alexander:

•   The business was founded in 1982 when David J. Alexander opened his first office in Leith, Edinburgh. David is still as involved in the business as he was on day one, meeting clients and driving our team.

•   Growth of DJ Alexander has mainly been down to client recommendations, and is still our main driver to this day. You may have also seen our fleet of minis, city-wide signage, online marketing and TV advertisements across both cities.

•   John Alexander (brother of David) is joint managing director of the company. It’s not just family leading the business though; Rob Trotter was promoted to Associate Director in 2016 after 14 years with the company.

•   DJ Alexander's lettings arm is the largest property management agency in Central Scotland, with over 5,000 managed properties. DJ Alexander Legal also continues to grow with properties for sale across Scotland.

•   We are proud to have a range of experienced staff available to offer our clients the highest level of service. Many of our team have been with the company for over 10 years, and our longest standing employee joined us in 1994.

•   Being the largest means that we can have dedicated teams to assist with your every need. Our services span new business, property investment, property refurbishment and much more.

•   We know how important first impressions of your property are. That's why whether you're letting or selling, we always include professional photography as standard. 

•   Our website receives over 48,000 visits per month from people in over 170 countries.

•   We work for our clients’ best interest every single day.


Explaining the success of the company David Alexander says: “Although the business has grown more than twenty-fold, we still provide the same individual, highly focused level of service to each and every client, and at a price that provides real value for money. We realise that every client is different and paying attention to their specific requirements goes a long way to getting a ‘result’ on their behalf. Our motto is, ‘Extraordinary services, exactly when you need it’ and that succinctly sums up DJ Alexander.”
