Iain Berry hits his quarter century at Connells
17 November 2010
Regional land and new homes director Iain Berry celebrates 25 years at estate agency Connells.
“I still thoroughly enjoy my job and have as much passion today as I did when I first joined the company 25 years ago. Although the company has grown significantly in that time and now has a network of over 150 offices, it has retained its ethos of caring for its employees and customers,” says Iain Berry.
Iain joined Connells in November 1985 and worked his way up the career ladder to area director on the residential sales side of the business. He took over responsibility for the company’s land and new homes operation in the South East in 2002 and was promoted to regional land and new homes director in 2007, which reflected his expanded role as a result of the significant growth in this area of Connells business.
“For four of the past five years Connells has won the Best New Homes category at the Estate Agency of the Year awards and in the current housing market, it’s this sort of experience and expertise that sets the company apart and gets results,” says Iain Berry.
“In my land and new homes role I have built up excellent relationships with developers and made many friends within the industry who I have enjoyed working with. I look forward to building on our success over the coming years and ensuring that we meet, and wherever possible exceed, land-owners, developers and customers expectations.”
