AFTER a busy year driven by a buoyant property market and high demand for its services, Property Perspective has appointed its first sales director.
Karen Bury, who was previously head of sales, has now moved up to director level after leading the account management team through the pandemic.
Karen, who joined the company in 2016 as an account manager, has also held a team leader role for Property Perspective previously, so has worked in the business at all levels.
Her new role will see her continue to push the account management team to hit exchange and completion deadlines for homes owned by customers of their housebuilder clients, as well as now getting involved in other aspects of the business including training, recruitment, home valuations and marketing.
Karen said: “The past year has been strange, but also refreshing in some ways as we’ve had to find new ways of working. To be promoted to sales director after the various challenges we had to work through during the pandemic means so much. I’m thoroughly looking forward to continuing to support our wonderful team, as well as taking on new challenges that will come with overseeing all parts of the business.”
The property sales firm, which provides specialist services to the new homes sector - including managing agency assist and part exchange schemes - has also promoted Greg McLaughlin and Anthony Kelly to senior account managers and Zeenat Akhtar to trainee account manager.
Greg and Anthony have worked for Property Perspective for a number of years and were account managers prior to their promotions. Zeenat was previously an assistant account manager and credits working throughout the pandemic to instilling her with confidence for her new role.
Their promotions coincide with the team growing by 25% over the past 18 months and, despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the Property Perspective business enjoying a hugely positive period.
The number of housing completions is up 14% and they have welcomed 12 new housebuilder clients, including Jones Homes Yorkshire, five new Redrow divisions around the country, Taylor Wimpey North West and Genesis Homes.
Managing director, John Jarvis, said: “I’m extremely proud of the team at Property Perspective. Under Karen’s leadership they have continued to hit exchange and completion deadlines and, most importantly, been a consistent support to vendors and buyers in what was quite an uncertain time. Karen’s commitment, experience, attention to detail and strong communication were attributes that made her perfect for the role of sales director.”
