David Lee was created by David Kirby and Lee O'Brien, already very successful estate agents, who decided to leave the corporate world and open an office that would be independently owned and run by highly motivated, passionate property professionals.

The first David Lee office was set up in 2004 in Stansted Mountfitchet - a thriving village on the Essex and Hertfordshire border - and concentrated on residential property sales. In 2006, we expanded into the private rental market due to the high demand from local landlords who loved the David Lee brand and service. The lettings department grew quickly and soon became an integral part of the business, enabling us to provide the full moving service.

In January 2010, we opened the doors to our second office in the heart of the delightful market town of Bishop's Stortford. The company already had a sales presence in Bishop's Stortford and it was a natural progression for us to move into this larger market. Making this move gave us the ability to provide our customers with superb coverage of the local area, with both offices working together as a unified team.

In 2013 David Lee won the silver award at The Times & Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year Awards.

In 2015 David Lee won the silver award at The Negotiator Awards in the East of England Agency of the Year Category.

In January 2016, we opened our third office in the heart of the beautiful market town of Great Dunmow. This strategic move has expanded our coverage of the local area and has given us a huge patch to work within. 

David and Lee both live locally and are very active in the community. They keep their fingers on the pulse of all developments in the property world both locally and nationally, to make sure they stay at the top of their game​.
