Another appointment for Connells New Homes
01 April 2011
Connells award-winning New Homes division has made another appointment to its growing team.
Viv Denyer takes up the role of New Homes Manager, effective immediately. She will be based from the Connells branch in Kempshott Park, Basingstoke and will be covering an area across Hampshire and Wiltshire including ten Connells branches and 36 new homes developments.
Viv joins Connells New Homes with many years experience in both new homes and estate agency. She has previously worked as a Branch Manager for Connells and is returning to the company in her new role. Viv’s breadth of knowledge in both new homes and second-hand sales means she is well placed to ensure the branches are working as an extension of both Connells New Homes and developers’ teams.
“I am delighted to be returning to Connells and taking up the role of New Homes Manager,” says Viv. “Because I have worked on the estate agency side of the business, I understand how branches operate and intend to further develop the relationship between the branch teams and the new homes operation that we run on behalf of local and national developers.”
Viv is passionate about new homes and intends to maintain a key focus on developing the understanding of new homes within the branches. “We have a highly-trained and award-winning new homes team at Connells, so we often generate sales for developers from buyers who wouldn’t have initially considered buying a new home,” Viv continues. “This is where the expertise and experience that Connells branches have really comes into play for developers. These buyers might not even be considering a new home but Connells can sell the benefits and generate sales.”
Tom Bateson, Regional Director for Connells New Homes had this to say on the appointment: “I am very pleased to welcome Viv to the team, her experience and commitment to increasing the understanding around buying a new home will be of great benefit to our developer clients,” says Tom. “The appointment is testimony to Connells continued investment in our New Homes team and commitment to this part of the business.
