"We recently bought our first house through Spenser & Lee. We cannot recommend them enough! Both me and my husband had the best experience with them - every time we contacted them they were helpful and insightful. And every one has been nothing but kind and polite. They made the whole process less stressful and much more enjoyable."


"Yet another successful sale and purchase with Spencer & Leigh! A friendly visit from Spencer to arrange the sale, Simon informative when showing us around the property that we viewed. James as usual excellent at chasing the sale through for us. All highly recommended."

Nina Couchman

"We bought our first home through James at Spencer and Leigh 6 years ago and were so impressed we sold through them last month. We loved the helpful and patient nature of the whole team and would thoroughly recommend. James has kept in touch with us since our first interaction 6 years ago, he is a wealth of knowledge and a gentleman."

Gav Kemp

"Really excellent service. I have used them before and would again. Sue Wilkinson in particular is a great agent. She is helpful and knowledgeable with tons of experience which I found reassuring. The whole team are helpful, efficient and friendly. Best in the area by far."

Jan Irving

"Spencer and Leigh were very helpful when arranging the sale of my property and kept me fully informed of viewings and feedback. The selling price they suggested was accurate because of their knowledge of the area and the sale went through without any problems. Very pleased with the service from all their staff."

Caryl Stamp

"This is the second move I’ve done through Spencer and Leigh in Patcham and they have been absolutely brilliant! Every member of staff is lovely, they do not pressure you like some estate agents and make everything feel very relaxed. They have a good flexible contract with a low fee. Would recommend anyone using them for sale and purchase!"

Julie Hawthorne

"Simon and his team were brilliant. The perfect choice for selling our house. I found the service professional and personal and with follow up calls to let me know how things were progressing with our buyers and vendor. My stress level's never raised in their hands. This company outstrips all the big boys in the market and are just exceptional. Will use again and always recommend them."

Dave Lee-Falcon

"Spencer and Leigh are miracle workers. They always find me a buyer, get a great deal and are wonderful to deal with. Can’t recommend them enough. Emily, Hove"

Emily Gunnis

"My mum recently used Spencer & Leigh, this is what she said….. I would highly recommend Spencer & Leigh, they were very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process of selling and buying, Sarah gave help and advice when I was unsure of some of the questions asked on the forms sent by the solicitor, I would not hesitate to use them again if ever needed."

Kerrie Braiden

"James and simon were very helpful and made sure they kept on top of everything and made a stressful move so much easier. Would strongly recomend Spencer& Leigh. Thank you."

Kim Rushton

"Absolutely brilliant estate agents! No fuss, no flannel, just cool, calm efficiency. Absolutely lovely to deal with (Sue Wilkinson and Sarah Marshall - this means you!). They sold our house in Brighton for a great price. We had a couple of hiccups en route, but their communication and negotiation skills were superb and smoothed everything through. We saw several agents before we found them (and yes, they came on recommendation), but they were head and shoulders above the others. This is a total, unqualified recommendation from us! Iain and Jane, Brighton"

Iain Faulkner

"Having just completed the sale of my house l am very pleased l went with Spencer & Leigh. They were correct in their reading of the market and pricing, the whole team was professional, friendly and super efficient throughout the whole process, able to recommend a good and reasonably priced local solicitor, competitive with their own fees, and all in all lived up to all their promises and more. Couldn't have wished for a better service and very happy to recommend them to others. Many thanks."


"Top quality service from a top quality estate agent. Right from the beginning we have always felt wanted and looked after by the superb team of Sarah and James at Spencer and Leigh. The photo's of our flat were absolutely stunning and the open day proved popular with multiple offers. Usually always available to talk too, (and they will ring you back if not). We really cannot recommend this Estate Agent enough - use them you will not regret it."

Rob & Sarah

"James, Sarah& Leanne were brilliant! And not forgetting the lovely Lorraine from Finance Planning who sorted our mortgage deal. We had such a terrible start to selling our home through another agent and as the wheels were falling off James rescued us! Worth their fee and more! Everything was explained to us clearly and they were always happy to answer any questions. They did a lot of the leg work, talking to our buyers and our purchasing agent and helped us understand the process of the solicitors work. Our situation was complicated and it did take time, but they never gave up and got us to our new and final home in the end! But if we had to do it all over again we wouldn't go anywhere else! If you need an estate agent and you want an honest one, then look no further, Spencer & Leigh are a breath of fresh air to the high street estate agent scene. :) A big thank you to all of you!"

Lucy Whittington

"I have recently purchased my house through Spencer and Leigh, the team have been an absolute delight the whole way through the process, being helpful and informative every step of they way. They have such a friendly and happy approach which has made me feel so at ease. I would highly recommend them!"

Ella-Louise Groves

"James and his team kept us informed at every stage to ensure a fast and trouble free transaction took place."

Rick Betts

"Thank you James and team for making a very stressful experience bearable. We have never moved house and had been in our property for forty four years but with thanks to James' and his team's patience and expertise we got through. Once again many thanks."

Gill & Dave

"James and the team were excellent! All communication was professional and timely. Fees are market leading and the overall experience sublime. If we ever moved again they would be our agents of choice. Keep up the good work!"

Alan & Loraine Coom

"I recently moved for the first time in twenty-five years. I did at first consider the option of the concept of the ‘non-high street’ estate agent for a lower fee. However, I am very glad that I did not, as James and his team were absolutely invaluable in communication with all parties concerned in the post-sold period. Yes, it’s great to get a buyer, but that’s when any complications and stalled communications are likely to arise if they are going to, and that’s where Spencer & Leigh excelled in keeping everything on track. I cannot commend highly enough the professional and personable level of service given at all times of the process by James and his team and thoroughly recommend them to anyone who needs to feel they are in good hands in the ‘bobbing about on the ocean’ business of selling and buying a property!"

Diana Shirley

"We are so pleased we went with Spencer and Leigh. They were certainly the right choice for us. The service has been wonderful throughout: professional and at the same time friendly, with all stages carefully managed and clearly explained to us. The team have a welcoming manner. All went smoothly with the sale of the property and all was completed in very good time. We recommend them. Steve and Janet"

Steve & Janet

"Having rented out my flat with various different companies over the years, it was refreshing to deal with Spencer & Leigh. No chore was too much and from taking photos to my new tenants moving in it was easy. "

Alan Williams

"We recently brought a house in Portslade Village where James Morris at Spencer & Leigh acted as the estate agent. The communication throughout the (sometimes very stressful) process was excellent. They were always on hand to give advice and communicate with the seller and their solicitors for us. And as a nice finishing touch when we moved in we had a welcome to your new home parcel from Spencer and Leigh waiting for us. Great service throughout, thanks James & Team."

Bettina Meddings

"I haven't moved within the last 24 years, so was not up to date with anything on selling and buying. James and Sarah, we're not just estate agents trying to make a quick buck, they were professional , honest, and straight talking people, they not only helped sell my home but gave me help and advice on my purchase.( even though it was from another agency ) They have excellent communication skills, keeping you informed at every step of the way. Am going to miss our little chats, formal and informal. Also like to thank Leanne for all emails and passing messages to James when he was unavailable. A first class agency, with first class staff. "

Jackie Smith

"GOOD LETTING AGENT! I have just moved into a flat with my partner which i rent through Spencer and Leigh. I was extremely happy with the way they dealt with us as tennants and communicated with us every step of the way. We have had bad experiences with other Letting Agents and found Spencer and Leigh to be a breath of fresh air."


"EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS! I offered on a flat through Spencer & Leigh and exchanged contracts within 6 weeks and was over the moon to be moved before Christmas. This wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the hard work of the team at Spencer & Leigh who pulled out all of the stops and gave an excellent service. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell."


"Excellent service from the very first call, and all the way through my long distance purchase. I've been consistently delighted with their attention to my requests, keeping me up to date all the way through, even helping me out with unexpected requirements too! All their recommended suppliers have been great to deal with too - I couldn't recommend them any more highly!!"

Sarahjane Meyer

"We bought our property through Spencer & Leigh and also used them as our letting agents. There were a few little bumps along the way but overall we were and still are very happy with their service."

Sarah Carter

"I've used Spencer and Leigh to manage my property since moving to Australia. I believe they are very fair to both myself and my tenants. My property is quite old and has required a number of repairs/ renovations. Spencer and Leigh have managed these efficiently and courteously. They have even chased payments out of insurance companies for me. I cannot recommend them highly enough as a landlord and to prospective tenants."

Rhodri Edwards

"I have been renting a flat managed by Spencer and Leigh for 2 years and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to rent in the Brighton area. They have been friendly, efficient and helpful since the start. I was shown a few potential properties by James when I was looking for somewhere to live and he was refreshingly honest and gave me helpful advice about the Brighton rental market (as I was just moving to the area). Then, throughout the tenancy, they have continued excellent service. In particular, their maintenance manager, Clare, deals with any queries I have quickly and cheerfully, and always makes sure things are organised with minimum disruption to myself or my work. I really can't fault them, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a lovely home to rent!"


"We have rented from Spencer & Leigh for the past three years and I highly recommend them. Clare in particular has been incredibly helpful, going above and beyond in communication and sorting any problems we have had. If you're looking to rent a house, check them out first, best letting agents I have ever dealt with."


"I have had excellent service from all the staff at Spencer and Leigh. They are highly professional and have taken care of all stages of the letting process for me. I have a good relationship with the team, they show initiative and have local trade sources for all works that have been carried out. I would strongly recommend them to anyone."

Carole Costen

"Spencer & Leigh have sold property for us and manage a rental property.They are a professional, friendly and reliable team.We live overseas and we are always impressed at how quickly emails are responded to and how quickly issues are dealt with.Spencer and Clare are fab and go the extra mile.We highly recommend Spencer & Leigh!"

"I have been renting my flat through Spencer & Leigh for a few years now and have found every single member of the team extremely professional, courteous and knowledgeable of the industry that they are involved in. Nothing is ever a problem, every time I have encountered a problem at the property it has all been handled in a quick manor and I have been kept informed at all times. I am thinking of selling the flat now and would not put my property with any other agent other than Spencer & Leigh . I can thoroughly recommend them"

Julie Rodberg

"Spencer and Leigh has been doing a great job in managing our property for several years. Payments and invoicing is smooth and communication is fast and clear. The team has been proactive in assessing and advising on tenant change and maintenance issues and fast professional and efficient in getting things sorted."

Paul McCarrick

"Spencer & Leigh have been looking after our rental property portfolio for several years now and we are very pleased with the level of service we get from them. We know we can rely on Clare, their Maintenance Manager, to sort out any problems. She has a good team of contractors and insists on high standards of work. Lucy, the Lettings Manager, and her team get us good quality tenants which means we seldom have any problems with them. We would certainly recommend Spencer & Leigh."
