We have a dedicated team of specialist professionals with a proven track record of handling both the sale and acquisition of a variety of residential and mixed use developments. Our client base spans from private individuals to national house builders and Public Limited Companies. Our specialist property development team is able to assist in raising mezzanine and equity finance for primarily residential and mixed use projects although they will consider other suitable projects. They can also bring suitable Joint Venture Partners, both equity and construction to assist in bringing your project to fruition.
Experienced consultant teams are available where the individual and small to medium sized developer does not have the necessary experience in certain aspects of their project. With many years of collective experience behind the Lourdes team, we can assist development clients from the outset with specialist planning advice, flood risk assessments, daylight studies and financial appraisals. We can assist with any aspect of a project that may be required to bring the deal to completion and provide the mezzanine and senior debt providers with the comfort they require to proceed with the projects’ finance.
Before the sales process begins we will implement a bespoke sales and marketing strategy. This encompasses off plan sales, pre and post launch PR campaigns, press and media advertising, project marketing and appointment of site sales personnel.
