In a move expected to add a new dimension to the North’s residential development land sector, the launch has just been announced of Northern Land Agency.

With Steven Verity and John Dunlop firmly at the helm, the newly formed Northern Land Agency boasts two of the North’s most successful names in residential land sales and acquisitions, development consultancy and residential capital markets and commitments. With, between them, over 50 years’ experience within the North West house building industry, Steven and John have an unrivalled access to the residential market in the north of the UK.

But where Northern Land Agency is really set to make a mark is in its way of thinking. It will offer everything you would imagine from a pedigree team with a corporate background, but with a boutique level of service designed to guarantee every client and every opportunity has maximum exposure to the widest range of markets.

By tapping into their considerable industry connections and resourcing the services of project teams that include leading professionals from other specialisms, Director, John Dunlop, knows that recognising they’re being given absolutely up-to-date information and advice is the backbone of decision making for their clients.

“Northern Land Agency is perfectly placed to know where land is, what it’s worth and who will decide its future. Combined with an understanding of the needs of developers and investors, the end result is always the same…the delivery of deal structures and business plans that work perfectly for both.”

The agency will specialise in a highly focussed approach in terms of use class, specialism and geography. Whether sale or purchase, funding or research, its priority will lie in maximising the return from clients’ land holdings and identifying and delivering sites with the optimum potential for residential-led development by tailoring solutions to meet specific needs.

Fellow Director, Steven Verity, explains. “Here at Northern Land Agency, we provide the kind of bespoke consultancy and research packages that are usually the exclusive preserve of larger consultancies. We have access to the same data sources that the larger firms enjoy, meaning our packages are tailored to suit each client’s requirements, but with the added focus and market-facing edge John and I can bring as a boutique agency.”

Bottom line? With their long and highly successful track record within residential and residential-led developments, Steven, John and Northern Land Agency are perfectly placed to give the most rounded and relevant experience and advice to deliver a complete sales and acquisitions service.
