About Us

DJ Alexander have offered property services for over 34 years. Founded by David Alexander in 1982, the business has grown organically through client recommendations and, with offices in Edinburgh & 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… That is along with our fleet of mini’s, city-wide signage, online marketing and TV advertisements.

•   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 Lettings is now the largest property management agency in Central Scotland with over 5,000 managed properties. DJ Alexander Legal continues to grow with properties 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. New business, property investment, property refurbishment - you name it.

•   We always include professional photography as standard whether you’re letting or selling. It’s the first impression and we know how important that can be.

•   This website djalexander.co.uk receives over 48,000 visits per month from over 170 countries – Not bad considering we are a Central Scotland agency.

•   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.”
