Established Local Independent Agent Creates New Department During Global Pandemic. 


Alexander May, a well-known independent sales & property management business covering Bristol and North Somerset took the opportunity during lockdown to build and create a new department covering Land & New Homes.  Whilst their actions went against many of their competitors who in turn cut back during these challenging times, this was a natural progression for the independent business given the backgrounds and knowledge of the company directors in development.  To date Alexander May have had great success over the years in this sector and have been responsible for many land transactions, and the sales and marketing of multiple developments across Bristol & North Somerset. 


This strategic move will mean the department can fully focus on their client’s needs without the distractions of day to day agency work.  The team will be working tirelessly seeking new development opportunities for their clients and creating new and enhanced marketing methods to all their new home sites ensuring they are ahead of the competition. 


To kick this off they have appointed David Powell as Head of Land & New Homes, David has a wealth of experience in the property sector with a career stretching over 20 years across Bristol & North Somerset.  David’s key attributes are the desire to exceed expectation along with a strong business acumen, fully understanding the trials and tribulations to all involved in the property industry.  David says “Personally for me this is an exciting time, there is plenty to be positive about despite the unusual backdrop of a global pandemic, the team at Alexander May have been extremely welcoming, there is a strong team ethos and I am proud to be part of it”.


Over the last 6 weeks, the senior management team have been working hard to create their considered offering, this has included a separate identity to the department however retaining its close association with the current sales and property management branding.  Being an independent business, they have the flexibility to tailor their services around the client and the development, they simply don’t see this business as a one size fits all approach.  Their marketing techniques go well beyond just listing on portals and their desire to really make a difference has never been greater.


Company Director Rhodri Evans says “We are very excited about this announcement and it will be a fantastic benefit to our new and existing clients.  We have an exciting pipeline of developments and the Land & New Homes team have already been adding to this.  Away from this sector we have also strengthened our teams in other departments, we very much see this as an opportunity to progress as a business but more importantly continue to add value for our customers”.
