Neil Leahy Director - Land & Homes

Neil Leahy  Director - Land & New Homes

Neil is the co-owner of Butler & Stag, along with lifetime friend Michael Woolley. They set up the business in January 2012 with the objectives of building a market leading estate agency that changed public perception of the industry. Fast forward to today and our five star customer service has seen us win multiple awards for excellence from British Property Awards and Estate Agency Masters. Our three branches have all been voted within the top 0.5% of the UK Best Estate Agency Guide. So far so good.

Neil has specialised in residential property since 2002 initially in the city fringe markets and more recently in West Essex with our Theydon Bois (2017) and more recently with Chingford (2020). Neil’s knowledge of the area and passion for redevelopments, new homes and property management has seen him oversee several high profile transactions and land deals in collaboration with local and national developers.

Always up for a challenge, Neil has helped raise tens of thousands of pounds for local charities by throwing himself in events such the Three Peaks Challenge and London to Brighton bike ride. Away from the office Neil is a family man, he has a son and a daughter and enjoys spending time with them, along with his wife Claire. Neil also coaches his son’s football team at Buckhurst Hill FC and has overseen the transition of many of their players to professional academies.

Michael Woolley

Michael Woolley  Director - Land & New Homes

Michael set up Butler & Stag with best mate Neil Leahy back in 2012, having worked in the East London/City fringe property 2market since 1999. Over the years he has gained a wealth of experience and knowledge, personally handling almost every scenario you could possibly imagine within the world of property. More recently he has excelled with site and land acquisitions for high net worth clients, or acting on behalf of land/site owners, providing guidance on how best to approach a disposal of their assets.

Michael now heads up the Land & New Homes department which is the most exciting and rapidly expanding arm of the Butler & Stag operation. On the odd occasion Michael isn’t found working out of the London or West Essex office, he will be acting as chauffer to one of his three children or spending quality time with his long suffering wife!

We are committed to providing a professional service to all our clients and customers. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards. If you have a complaint, please put it in writing, including as much detail as possible.

A formal written outcome of our investigation will be sent to you within 15 working days of sending the acknowledgement letter.
  • If, at this stage, you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for a separate review to take place by a senior member of staff.
  • We will write to you within 15 working days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final viewpoint on the matter.
