Two of Keller Williams’ most energetic estate agents have jumped ship to a rival agency after just a short spell at the US-style firm.
Father and son team Alistair and Darren Lee have now signed up with another firm, Watermans, although as at Keller Williams they will be self-employed rather than staff.
Alistair Lee set up his first estate agency in Scotland with no previous experience within the industry ‘powered by Keller Williams’ in July 2020 and then later joined it as a director until leaving this week, with his father.
He is Alistair Lee, who has 32 years within the property industry and has been working with his son since leaving McEwan Fraser, one of the many legal firms in Scotland that has an estate agency arm.
Watermans has also been following this route and in February last year hired Tzana Webster (pictured) to head up its property division.
Scott Whyte, MD of Watermans, says: “I am delighted to welcome Darren and Alistair to the Watermans team.
“We already had a long-standing working relationship with them, and when the opportunity arose to bring them into the business, it was a no-brainer.
“Their arrival will complement the fantastic work that Tzana Webster has done in significantly growing our estate agency business over the last 15 months.
“This will also allow us to progress our wider objective of growing the business throughout Scotland.
“I know Darren and Alistair can’t wait to get started, and I am excited to see the further progress this move will allow us to make in the remainder of this year and beyond.”
