Our agency has one of the most forward thinking departments in the county dedicated to Land and New Homes.
We have the perfect blend of experience, enthusiasm and dedication to see a project through from conception to completion.
The team is led by Jonathan Searles, who has practiced in the residential sales market for over twenty years’: nine of which have been spent with Ashtons. Jonathan initially worked in the North London and Docklands area before specialising for the last fifteen years in Hertfordshire, building long term relationships with house builders and developers alike.
Working alongside Jonathan are Giles Hastings and Graham Law, both of whom bring a wealth of experience to the department.
Giles is a member of the Royal Institute of Town Planning who graduated from Oxford Brookes University with an Honours Degree in Land and Planning. Giles previously worked for a large national housebuilder before joining Ashtons six years ago and has since used his expertise and knowledge of planning to secure a number of high profile developments for our clients. Working closely with local authorities, planners and an extensive network of contacts he has managed to bring a number of sites together where others have failed.
Graham Law has worked for Ashtons for over 13 years and brings with him 50 years’ experience in both Residential Sales and Land and New Homes. Graham has extensive experience in planning and land acquisition and has successfully worked with many New Homes developments in the county.
We identify potential sites and propose the most suitable development scheme providing both commercial and financial advice. We work closely with planning consultants, conservation specialists and highway advisors to achieve the best outcome.
For developers, our intelligence and experience in the local property market is second to none. We have an enviable share of the local property market upon which we are able to provide first class advice to builders and developers. On the marketing side, we have sound resources from design and print to site representation, whether it be a bespoke individual scheme or a comprehensive new homes development.
