Connells have strengthened their Land and New Homes team with the appointment of Simone Dhanjal as Land and New Homes Partner for Essex and Suffolk, effective immediately.

Trevor Hill, Regional Director for Land and New Homes Eastern Region at Connells commented: “Simone has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Essex and Suffolk housing market, this together with her excellent track record of selling new homes will ensure Connells can offer the best possible advice and assistance to Land owners and developers.”

As land and new homes partner, Simone will be responsible for overseeing the smooth running of existing developments being sold through Connells in Essex and Suffolk. She will also work closely with the regional managing director, area directors and branches, to gain more land and new homes instructions from developers in the area.

Simone has worked in the property industry for 25 years and joined Connells in 1998 as branch manager of the company’s office in Chelmsford. Over the past 13 years Simone has gained promotion a number of times, most recently to area director, managing a number of offices across Essex. Simone has worked with a number of large plc house builders and smaller developers to market and sell a range of new homes developments.

Commenting on her appointment, Simone says: “I am delighted to have taken up this new opportunity and I look forward to the challenges it brings. Having worked alongside house builders for a number of years as a branch manager and area director, I feel I have the expertise and knowledge to bring to this new role. I look forward to building on my relationship with developers to increase Connells’ land and new homes operation.”
