We work with developers on a daily basis and understand their timescales. We completed the first Help to Buy case in Wales and helped to draft the initial paperwork.

We have no formal contracts with developers, as you are our client, yet due to our track record over the past 30 years, we are recommended by the majority of developers and national builders across South West England and South Wales.

With a large percentage of all existing clients come back to us this is even higher when looking at when we helped first time buyers and new build cases.

Benjamin (2). “Te Acres’ location ticked all the boxes. I work in Blackwood, which is only 25 minutes away - so it’s perfect for us. And this particular plot has it all. We’d been looking to move for a while and wanted to find somewhere that our children could call ‘home’ until they eventually move out. We found that in the Winstone house design here. “It has a double garage, a large drive and the most amazing private south-facing garden. All the rooms are a fantastic size - and the house is spacious enough to comfortably fit the four of us but not too big - so when the kids fly the nest, Holly and I can stay here. “We love the layout of the house - the study downstairs is now a kids’ toy room, which helps the children stay neat and tidy. And Holly and I have our own space in the lounge. “Our Winstone is set within a relatively small development


with plenty of open space. A small community.” Te Acres
