New company combines expertise as new homes market booms.
TWO of Warwickshire’s biggest estate agents have announced they are to join forces – launching a new company to lead the booming new homes market.
That company is Sheldon Bosley Knight (SBK) – a partnership between Sheldon Bosley and Knight & Rennie. Together they have decades of experience and unrivalled local knowledge with offices across Stratford, Leamington, Kenilworth and the Cotswolds.
Already, SBK has been instrumental in negotiating more than 65 strategic land deals across South Warwickshire and beyond.
The new company, launched this month, comes as the number of new-build homes being started and finished in England is at its highest level for almost a decade.
Government figures show construction on approximately 37,080 new homes was started between October and December 2015, up 23% on a year earlier.
Oliver Knight, Director of SBK, said: “Since 2012 central government has pushed local authorities to build more homes and there has been a real surge in the market, which is great news for buyers and sellers – and for the wider economy.
“What was lacking – and what we are answering the need for – is one company combining land and planning expertise with a very strong track record in new homes marketing and sales. “Sheldon Bosley Knight brings together the years of experience and expertise in the front-end planning and land agency work Sheldon Bosley undertakes, with the sales, marketing and comprehensive managed new homes services offered by Knight & Rennie.”
SBK is headed by Mr Knight, bringing extensive knowledge of the Warwickshire property market having set up Knight & Rennie back in 2004. He is joined by the experienced New Homes Manager Meryl Rose-Duncan. Completing the package is Planning Consultant Daniel Jackson and Marcus Faulkner, Director of Strategic Land.
“As a team we offer a truly holistic package of services on any site from conception to completion,” Mr Knight added.
“That’s what stands us apart; the fact our expert team can manage some of – or all of – the process, from the landowner looking to sell right through to the first-time buyer picking up a brochure.”
Development sites SBK are currently involved in stretch across south Warwickshire, from larger schemes for 220 new homes in Southam, or 150 in Radford Semele, to many much smaller, rural schemes. These include 26 new properties in Barford, 25 in Alderminster and 10 in Pillerton Priors.
