Lee Astle

Residential Director



Having worked in residential sales for the last 10 years my career started with a corporate agent back in 2003 and moved into management by 2004. I joined Maguire Jackson as Residential Sales Manager in October 2012 and have not looked back.


My dream home

A villa in the Algarve with its own pool overlooking the sea.


I last went the extra mile when

When we registered a lady from London on a Saturday who wanted to view a selection of properties but the diary was full of appointments but I grabbed the keys to three properties after the office had closed and took her on a tour.


The most honest advice I’ve ever given

With MJ Direct, no commission’s involved so our clients know when we advise them to consider an offer, it is for their benefit only. 


One of the best reasons to live in Birmingham is

It is a vibrant city that is still being growing and hosts some spectacular places for socialising and entertainment as well as the tranquil canals where you can simply watch life pass by.


When I was last professional

When I was delayed on a prior appointment and rang through to apologise as well as say ‘thank you for your patience’ on arrival.  Manners cost nothing but count a lot.


When I was last respectful

When a viewer offered 40% beneath the asking price, I asked ‘would you accept that offer Sir if it was your apartment?’ To which he replied ‘No’!!


When I was last enthusiastic

Everyday.  It rubs off on people!


When I was last proactive

When a client was trying to haggle over fees I pointed out the benefits of MJ Direct and how it would benefit them as their apartment was quite unique to the market, within 48 hours of instruction they had an offer almost at asking price.
