Connells New Homes Regional Director celebrates 20 years

Connells is thrilled to announce that Tom Bateson is celebrating 20 years with the company this month.  Tom, who joined the company in 1995 as branch manager at the Basingstoke office which, during his tenure, became the company’s most profitable office in 1999, has quickly worked his way up through the ranks becoming a new homes specialist in 2002 through to his current position as Regional Director for the New Homes South division since 2007. 

“I am thrilled to reach this milestone anniversary with Connells at an incredibly exciting time for the company,” says Tom.  “Our new homes division goes from strength to strength.  We recorded a record breaking year last year which we are on course to surpass this year.  The market is buoyant, there is continuous demand for more new homes and we have won more new instructions in the first half of this year compared to the whole of last year.  In fact, our parent company Connells Group recently announced a staggering 43% increase in new homes sales in its half year results as compared to 2014.  We fully expect this momentum to continue throughout the remainder of the year and look forward to achieving more successes for our developer partners.”

Tom, who oversees the New Homes division for the following regions – Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Avon & South Gloucester – has in excess of 30 years of expertise in the sector and heads up a team of five highly experienced new homes specialists.  The company intends to grow and invest in the division to meet current demand.

“We pride ourselves on the level of customer service we offer in our new homes division and across our extensive branch network,” adds Tom.  “We continue to look at those opportunities to expand and grow the division in order to provide the most effective service for our customers within this growing market.”
