JAMES ALEXANDER | FML Estates

JAMES ALEXANDER

Director

The backbone of the company and boasting over 50 Years of experience in all fields of Property from Development to Maintenance, Alex's standards of Customer Service and attention to detail reverberate through every facet of FML.

Starting out as a fresh faced apprentice at a prestigious Civil Engineering firm in Victoria it was here that he caught the bug for the Property field that would follow him throughout his professional and personal life.

Through sound research and an insistence for leaving nothing to chance Alex has managed to build a successful personal portfolio that the family has always been involved in. They continue to add to it using the same tenets that got Alex on the ladder but Alex's passion shifted post - 2008 when he saw that Landlords he knew were crying out for guidance and honest advice in a tumultuous financial landscape.

All these years later, with the support of the family, Alex personally oversees the management of over 500 properties as a direct point of contact for Landlords. He is known for his integrity and honesty and thrives on delivering bespoke solutions to Landlords in need of guidance in a constantly shifting market place.

JAMES ALEXIS ALEXANDER MARLA | FML Estates

JAMES ALEXIS ALEXANDER MARLA

Managing Director

James established himself propertywise in the pre-Olympic boom, cutting his teeth in the dog eat dog world of lettings that emerged in East London. Some agents fell by the wayside but his dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit pushed him on.

But the story doesn’t start there, property is all this guy has ever known and that carries through in his dealings on a day to day basis.

He has an unrivalled passion for innovation and is constantly looking for ways to improve the customer experience at FML, searching out the latest technological and logistical developments to ensure they are always one step ahead of the pack.

James is never “off the clock” and it is not unknown for him to spend traditionally off peak times on conference calls to overseas landlords. He prides himself on ensuring they are up to speed with developments in UK legislation as well as more personal reassurances on their investments.

The hub of the company, all our Landlords sleep easier knowing James has it covered.
