“The Connells Group in its entirety has a wide spectrum of experience and expertise to offer Housing Associations,” says Sara Allen, Affordable Housing Partner for the Connells Group. “Our partners don’t often realise the multifaceted nature of our business so at this year’s conference we are putting out a strong message about the combined strength of the Group.”

As well as Connells’ well-known estate agency and lettings network, including brands such as Barnard Marcus, Connells, Fox & Sons and William H Brown, the Group incorporates a dedicated national land and new homes team, Connells Survey & Valuation, award-winning mortgage and conveyancing services, energy and sustainability advice through Connells subsidiary Vibrant Energy Matters, asset management and many of the UK’s largest auction centres. It provides these services to 19 of the current top 20 Housing Associations in the UK.

“Our stand at ‘Housing 2011’ will demonstrate to affordable housing providers the true breadth and depth of services we offer,” Sara continues. “At the moment, the Connells Group is one of the industry’s best kept secrets; we think those visiting our stand at M300 will be surprised by what we can offer and the business benefits of working with our Group.”
