14 November 2019
New roles covering West and East Midlands
Connells is bolstering its Land & New Homes Division in the Midlands with a number of new appointments.
Katy Harwood has been appointed as Head of West Midlands New Homes, while Aimee Harris will take on the role of Midlands East New Homes Manager. Taylor Saddington also joins the team as Land Manager, covering Midlands North and South for Connells, Paul Dubberley and Burchell Edwards in Solihull, Shirley, Castle Bromwich, Erdington and Sheldon.
Katy joins Connells after previously heading up the new homes department at Butters John Bee estate agency. With 15 years’ experience in the industry, Katy previously worked her way up in Countrywide estate agency, joining as a negotiator, progressing to branch manager and then making the move into New Homes.
“I am really keen to put a plan together that will disturb the existing market with the service we can offer. My team, who have a wealth of experience in all avenues of new builds, is a force to be reckoned with,” said Katy.
Aimee initially joined the industry as a negotiator with Spencers estate agency before joining developer Miller Homes. Her role will see her working with developers across Leicestershire, covering offices in Blaby Oadby Leicester Hinckley Melton and Grantham.
“I have a passion for new builds and have done since selling my first site from Spencers. I am keen to work closely with developers, winning new business and driving the sales through the branches.”
Taylor, who recently rejoined Connells after a six month break travelling in south-east Asia, said: “This has definitely been a big career change for me but I’m so glad I did it. I knew it was a massive step up from my previous role but I am 100% up for the challenge. I know it will help me develop my skills further as I am really keen to progress through the ranks in Land & New Homes.”
Connells’ Divisional Managing Director for the Midlands Elizabeth Brown said: “We are delighted to welcome Katy, Aimee and Taylor to our team. With their wealth of experience in the new homes sector, and estate agency as a whole, they are excellent additions to the team. I wish them all the best in their new roles and look forward to working with them.”
