Meet Jennifer 
Jennifer Leslie, Associate

Jennifer has been working in Residential Conveyancing in Aberdeen since 2011 having started as a Paralegal before completing her traineeship at a large well known Aberdeen firm in 2014.

She enjoys guiding clients through what is classed as one of the most stressful processes that they will go through during their lives, working to making it as easy and stress free as possible.

When asked what her favourite Gilson Gray Value was, Jennifer said, “Be True. We are in a position of trust with clients when acting for them in any residential transaction and I think that being open and honest with them helps make the process easier. I always let client’s know if any issues crop up as soon as possible and try to always present them with a solution to resolve the issue. I always treat clients how I would want to be treated myself.”

While Gilson Gray are a relatively new name in Aberdeen, behind the brand there is a local and highly experienced team who have all come together from other familiar and established law firms to offer a bespoke, communicative, and professional service.

Jennifer is well versed and experienced in New Build properties and was recently featured in an article with The Press & Journal with four things to consider when purchasing a newbuild home.

When asked about her favourite local spots in Aberdeen, Jennifer commented, “For lunch everyone in the office loves going to Prego or Dutch Mill which are very close to the office. If I am going out for dinner with friends or family I always enjoy The Albyn.”

“When we first started out trying to put our flat up on the market it wasn’t the best journey. A family friend then put us in contact with the team at Gilson Gray and the service we received was just amazing! They made it feel so easy from the start, and all the way through to the end. The team from conveyancing was also brilliant to deal with. They also made it feel so easy and under control for both selling our flat and buying our new home! We would highly recommend Gilson Gray! They were fab!

  • Hannah Mitchell | Conveyancing

“I have recently just purchased my first home and I could not have asked for a more smoother process. From my first point of contact with Arron straight through into my main point of contact Emma and Chloe, I had a great experience. Any information I did not understand, was broken down and explained further. I was never left in the dark about documentation and I was supported throughout. Each stage of the process was clearly explained and I received continuous updates and prompt responses. Emma guided and supported me all the way, and she was extremely approachable. No query or worry from my side was an issue. Fabulous team to work beside. Thank you.”

  • David | Conveyancing

“I was recommended Gilson Gray by our mortgage advisor. The process was fairly straightforward albeit stressful, however, this is just how buying a property is I believe. They were able to answer all my questions when I asked getting back to me within 48 hours on these matters. It was a higher price than we expected based on what our mortgage advisor suggested, however, I know its not them that set the price naturally.”

  • David C | Conveyancing

“A fantastic solicitors with fantastic people. I had Emma as my solicitor. She was so supportive, understanding and always stuck to her word. I used Gilson Gray to support with the purchase of my late grandmother’s home. I am now in and settled and can’t thank Gilson Gray and of course Emma enough.”

“Kirsten was a brilliant solicitor, working hard to get things done. Always kept me fully informed and offered invaluable advice while still fully supporting my decisions. When an issue would arise she promptly dealt with them and was always pushing things through. Couldn’t ask for a better person to have been assigned to the sale of my house.”

  • Emma Silence

“Fantastic service in the most difficult of times. A house purchase during COVID. A million questions asked. A million answered. Those that couldn’t be answered due to the changing circumstances were addressed honestly with a ‘we don’t know yet’…sometimes that’s all you need to know. Not some fluffed answer. Fabulous.”

  • Rebecca | Conveyancing

“This is the second time I have used Gilson Gray and both times I have been so happy with the hard work and dedication shown towards supporting me to sell and buy a house.”

  • Heather MacKinnon | Conveyancing

“From the very first dealing with Gilson Gray to the very last, the professionalism, communication and helpfulness was second to none. Nothing was ever any trouble to them and they called me back or emailed me back every time they said they would in the time they said they would do it. I felt a real desire from every person I spoke to at Gilson Gray to make the sale as stress free as possible for me which they did. Everyone was so friendly and easy to deal with and I was assigned people each part of the sale to deal with, and even when phoning up and that person was busy the person I spoke to knew what was going on so there was no being passed from pillar to post, it’s obviously a well-run business with high emphasis on communication both internally and externally. I could not recommend Gilson Gray highly enough.”

  • Chris Patience | Conveyancing

“Rachel Greig was a pleasure to deal with. She kept us up to date with our house purchase, documentation and everything we needed to do as first time buyers. She is a credit to the company and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a solicitor.”

  • Darren Nairn
  • Conveyancing

From dealing with our offers to finalising everything Gilson Gray couldn’t have done anymore to help us in our first time buying experience. Even through a global pandemic (covid19) they still made sure our process was not effected and stress free. Kept up to date at every point and no question/query couldn’t be answered during this time. Myself and jade would like to thank all at Gilson Gray for all they’re hard work and dedication on our journey. Thank you !

  • Graeme Bedborough | Conveyancing

“Very helpful, responsive and professional.”

  • Janice Anderson

“The service was faultless. Anything I was required to do was the absolute minimum in terms of completing the sale of my house, took very little time and was effortless. That does not happen without a huge amount of work. The pandemic made absolutely no difference that I was aware of and did not hinder a speedy process, which in my opinion highlights the invisible, but outstanding business processes in place. At what is recognised as an extremely stressful life event, I was completely confident in the professional service provided and wondered what was stressful about it!

First-class customer service from start to finish, which is very rare these days, even without the challenges of a pandemic.

The only reason I had a different solicitor for the purchase of my new home was moving to England required a solicitor there.

Without a moment’s hesitation, I would highly recommend.”

“I recently used Gilson Gray Dundee for the conveyancing on a new-build property I had purchased, and was absolutely delighted with the service I received from my solicitor Kerri. Nothing was too much trouble, all queries were answered in detail, and I was hugely impressed by the professionalism and expertise that Kerri showed throughout the entire process, I could tell I was in safe hands. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to her and the rest of the Team at Gilson Gray Dundee for all of their hard work, and look forward to using their services again in the future.”

Jennifer took time to provide advice and help me in purchasing my home. She made it very straightforward and the timescale from offer accepted to entry date was very swift.”

  • Emma Campbell

“I was recommended to Gilson Gray when I first reserved my new build flat.  I didn’t really know a lot about how it all worked, but luckily Kerry was very helpful and guided me through the whole process.  What became a bit stressful at times (due to delays on the flats) was made far better/less stressful with the consistent communication from Kerry, whether that be contacting me to give me an update, or answering any queries I had, it was always without delay and very useful info.  It really did take a lot of stress away as I was confident that anything that needed doing, would be done. Thank you Kerry, your service was flawless from beginning to end.”
