“This investment in new team members across Connells Group comes on the back of strong new homes performances in the last two years, having sold approximately 9,000 new homes in both 2017 and 2018, many of which have resulted from our increased influence in sourcing and selling development land to and for our developer clients. This comes despite more difficult trading conditions in 2018, shows our strength in this sector and supports our continued investment in this most important part of our business,” says Connells Group Land Director Roger Barrett.
“As the UK’s most successful land and new homes business, we must ensure that we are providing the very best service to our land and developer clients and to do so we need the best experts in our industry,” continues Roger. “We welcome our new additions, who will add further depth to our business and as we seek to maintain our position as the agent of choice for many leading UK builders and developers.”
