Can an estate agency branch really be green? Leaders says ‘yes’ again

Leaders has launched another sustainable office as part of its commitment to being carbon neutral by 2030.

Leaders has launched another sustainable office – this time in Aylesbury – as part of Leaders Romans Group (LRG) commitment to being carbon neutral by 2030 and its longer term pledge to make every branch across its network green.

David Wilson, LRG Group Chief Operating Officer, says: “Leaders Romans Group is committed to the enhancement of its nationwide high-street branch network through our approach of combining our excellent understanding of local markets with our national strength.”


Wilson says that tenants now expect more sustainability and responsibility from the property services they use and interact with.

And he adds: “Now is the time for the property sector to embrace the next big challenge and step up to help turn the industry green.”

Shaun Barnett, Leaders Lettings Director, says: “We’re delighted to be re-launching our new sustainable branch in Aylesbury, following our success since acquiring Lenwell’s in February 2021.

“The branch is much more accessible and central, which means we can serve the local people of Aylesbury better with our continued focus on fostering community spirit.”

Leaders commissioned green office and retail design consultants Jackson Associates to completely refurbish and design the Aylesbury office to their new green principles.


Every element of the re-fit has been produced locally to Aylesbury or in the UK to reduce transport emissions and to support local businesses.

And the result is a branch fully powered by renewable green energy and low-flow taps save up to 50% of water consumption with low-VOC paints releasing less gas than traditional paints. All fixtures and fittings were chosen to be as environmentally friendly as possible and all wood was sourced from locally produced FSC-certified wood.

Ceiling tiles are manufactured in the UK using bio-soluble mineral wool, perlite, clay and starch. They are durable, 100% recyclable and rated A+.

Elsewhere, solar film lines the high-street-facing windows to reflect heat out of the branch and lowers the need for electricity.
