Founder: Matt Glaser and Dean Leslie
The Business: GLPG are investment and development agents, making strides across the UK’s residential and commercial property market.
GLPG is an Investment and Development advisory business, with a transactional focus upon London and the South East of England.
It was set up at the beginning of 2016 by Matt Glazer, who qualified as an accountant at Deloitte, and Dean Leslie, who had spent years working in property and at various estate agencies.
As two very young entrepreneurs, the company has started to more become a household name in development and is generating deals across London and South England.
In addition to working on both acquisitions and disposals, they launched GLPG Finance in 2019. This has allowed them to facilitate the debt and equity requirements of existing clients, and also provide a full oversight across the transaction lifecycle.
2019 was a strong year for GLPG, and despite tough market conditions, they managed to transact on 17 agency deals with an approximate value of £175,000,000, as well as raising close to £15,000,000 worth of debt for our clients across three of these transactions.
Going forward, GLPG intend to continue their growth trajectory, and expand both the agency and their finance team.
