15 November 2010

Award-winning local estate agency Connells is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Jones as its new Area Director based in Stamford.

Effective immediately, Mark previously headed up Connells office in Grantham where his success at managing that branch means he has been promoted to oversee all Connells branches in the Peterborough and Lincolnshire area.

“I am delighted to be taking up the role of Area Director for Connells in Stamford,” says Mark. “We have a great opportunity to be the leading estate agent in the town and I fully intend to do everything possible to make this ambition a reality. Needless to say, we have no intention of closing the branch and fully anticipate we will be going from strength to strength in the near future.”

Mark has big plans for Connells in Stamford including a renewed focus on the local new homes market and helping homeowners looking to move to successfully market their properties and take advantage of improvements in the housing market going forward.

“Although there are still tough times ahead for the housing market, we expect to see improvements as the economy picks up in 2011,” Mark explains. “Connells Stamford will also be building upon the great relationships we have with local developers to offer a range of superb new homes to buyers which I am confident will be very successful.

Mark will shortly be recruiting a new team manager to the Stamford branch who will have prime responsibility for the branch. If you are interested in moving, would like advice on the local property market or to discuss mortgage options, please contact Connells Stamford on 01780 762951 or email:
