Our ‘newest’ member has more than 30 years industry experience

Tim Heather and his business partners John Lay and Natalie Oliver have been leading the way in land and new homes on their patch for more than 30 years.

In Falmouth and Penryn barely a land and new homes deal is done without their involvement and expertise being called upon.

So what made Heather & Lay Estate Agents become one of the latest members of the Land & New Homes Network?

Tim explained: “I’ve been involved with land and new homes projects since the early 1980s “As an agency we’ve experienced every aspect of the sector from advising on potential yields, developing hundreds of marketing plans to rolling up our sleeves and managing projects”

“Our niche has been the land and new homes sector and we’ve overseen and successfully marketed everything from the prestigious river and sea front developments to mixed use schemes”

“The work the Land and New Homes Network was brought to my attention by a friend in the industry. I immediately liked the sound of the ongoing support, non-competing network of fellow agencies and the access LNHN offered to some very big building and development companies”

“I asked people in the industry who I’ve worked with over the decades and the response from them was very positive about what Kevin and Ian offer”

“We’ve been in this business for a long time but still we recognise a good opportunity to grow and develop when we see it and the Land and New Homes Network is exactly that”

“Our fellow members provide opportunities for us to offer developers greater coverage as well as creating a great ideas pool for good agents to come together and share best practice.

Dates for the diary

Sorry there are no future events planned.

I have been working with Kevin as a member of The Land and New Network since October 2017. I have found his advice and guidance to be second to none. Through Kevin’s insight and advice Orchid have started to build a strong land and new homes division. Kevin is a true professional in his field.

Matthew Bennett – Orchid – Hertfordshire

Land & New Homes Network have helped me and my business take it to another level over the last year. The support from the whole team has been greatly appreciated with Kevin & Ian always on hand. I would recommend other forward-thinking agents to consider the network as a large part of their business. It’s not gift-wrapped for you, but the support, collateral, and connections give you an opportunity to make it a real success.
