Our Story

Alan Wright and Lee Johnstone previously ran Silk Property in Macclesfield and developed an excellent reputation backed by a wealth of superb reviews and testimonials. Our clients were the backbone to Silk Property.

Lee started at the company during its living room enterprise days and Alan arrived shortly after to take over from the company director. In their first full year they nearly tripled the companies turnover.

Alan and Lee want to provide the best possible experience when buying or selling a house and this is somewhat lost in todays cut-throat, target driven sales world. Ethical selling is a new breed of salesmanship; the duo’s drive to build a trustworthy Estate Agency brand in Macclesfield is aiming to thrive utilising their ethical, honest approach coupled with their vast industry knowledge.

When Alan and Lee decided to take the plunge into starting their own agency in Macclesfield they quickly realised the importance of having a strong brand. The norm in the industry is to use directors surnames or power words to sum up your USP and online agents use catchy/punchy names for their businesses so the decision to go down a different route was needed; a name that accentuated our strongest asset – us!

Alan and Lee quickly forged a strong working relationship together realising each others strengths and supporting each other, with a like mindedness and understanding that a strong bond is only beneficial for their clients. Previous testimonials consistently mentioned ‘Alan & Lee’ went the extra mile, ‘Alan & Lee’ supported us through a difficult sale, ‘Alan & Lee’ were full of friendly and trustworthy advice etc.

The name Alan Lee Independent Estate Agents was born from the above. They don’t want to come across as too conventional or stuffy using their surnames as the pair believe a slightly less formal and friendly approach relaxes all clients and parties involved in a very stressful process. Clients are looked after on their terms based on what is beneficial for them with no hidden agenda or hard sales tactics unlike some estate agencies out there today.

We are confident of our service and put our name to it, we are proud of our Town Macclesfield and the independent spirit and the strong community it has.

Director – Lee Johnstone

Having grown up with a passion for property born from working in the summer holidays as a labourer for his fathers residential construction business. Lee’s first steps into property were when he was made redundant 10 years ago from a sales role in a different industry, thus helping point Lee in the direction towards his passion in property.

Lee’s first role was at a corporate estate agents head office working his way up to be promoted to a corporate trainer in charge of both training new and experienced administrators and estate agents based at head office. With the knowledge he learnt within this role he went onto work as a negotiator in both sales and lettings for a few small successful independents in Cheshire before helping set up a new local independent agency in Macclesfield working from a directors living room before moving into offices. Lee has since undertook all aspects of the job including measure ups and valuations.

Lee joined Alan in setting up Alan Lee Independent Estate Agents in January 2019.
