We’re pleased to announce the appointment of Jon Quinn to the Managing Board of Directors. Jon is based at our Ellesmere branch covering principally the North Shropshire area, and has worked for Halls for almost 17 years having joined the team straight after leaving university.
“I started as an Office Junior assisting Allen Gittins, which was a baptism of fire at the time as Allen was quite the ‘taskmaster’! I’m very grateful to Allen, he showed a lot of patience, shadowing his every appointment taught me a great deal and as I learned more about the property business, I discovered a real passion for it, with development land becoming a particular interest of mine.”
One of Jon’s recent developments includes a project he worked on with Neil Mainwaring and Ali Kynaston Mainwaring, of Hardwick Hall Estate, negotiating and coordinating the sale of a four acre development site to Hawk Homes around 18 months ago.
Jon said: “Ali had a major input into the design of the site, adopting a traditional theme and working with a local architect, she produced a really interesting scheme. We sold the site to Hawk Homes and we were delighted to subsequently receive their instructions to market the new development. The development attracted, and is continuing to attract, huge interest with the majority of the 14 new homes reserved ‘off plan’ within the first few months of marketing”.
“Having lived in this area for most of my life, I’ve grown to love this part of the country and I’ve made a lot of friends and business contacts during my time at Halls. I have a young family and I have no future plans to live or work anywhere else, I’m very happy here’.
Looking ahead to the New Year and decade, now is a great time to get your property valued and discuss a marketing strategy for 2020. We are always happy to provide a free market appraisal, even if you are not considering moving for 3, 6 or even 12 months, it can help to have an honest opinion of your property’s value and ideas on any work which we feel may be beneficial to increase saleability.
