From a handful of properties to an unrivalled portfolio


D.J. Alexander began life as a residential estate agent in the Leith district of Edinburgh in 1982 but the proprietor, David Alexander, soon discovered the vast untapped potential offered by executive property lettings in the capital and decided to concentrate the firm’s entire efforts in this field.

Initially, the company had just a handful of letting properties on its books but due purely to generic growth it now manages an unrivalled portfolio of quality flats and houses not just in Edinburgh but also Glasgow, where DJ Alexander is based at 49 Bath Street, in the heart of the city.

Having established itself as one of Scotland’s most successful independent letting agencies, D.J. Alexander returned to its roots in 2005 by launching, or re-launching, its own residential estate agency arm DJ Alexander Sales.

Explaining the success of D.J. Alexander, David Alexander, managing director,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.”

“As our motto says, ‘Extraordinary services, exactly when you need it’; that succinctly sums up D.J. Alexander.”
