Ben was born and bred in Gravesend, although his family has close links to SE1 dating back to the late 1800s. After working for a number of Central London estate agencies, Ben joined forces with Lee in 2012 to set up Garrett Whitelock. As well as working as an estate agent since 2001, Ben is a property owner and landlord himself, giving him a greater appreciation of the challenges some of Garrett Whitelock’s clients face. He loves his job and thrives on getting out and about, meeting new people and seeing a wide variety of different properties in SE1 and the surrounding areas. Ben is married and currently lives in West Wickham. His interests outside work include Crystal Palace FC, cats and American cars - in no particular order. Ben is a member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (MARLA).

He set up Garrett Whitelock in 2012 with the strong belief that the industry could do so much better in terms of customer service and he has never looked back. Lee is a member of the National Association of Estate Agents (MNAEA). Married to Melanie, the couple have two children, Alfie and Alice, and when he’s not working Lee enjoys cycling, travelling and spending time with his family.
