I have recently become more involved with the land agency side of the residential development team, gaining experience in purchase and sale.
We are disposing a disused office building in Tower Hamlets and proposing a new residential led mixed-use scheme. My role so far has involved creating the marketing brochure, organising surveys and running appraisals to calculate the guide price. This is a project which I hope to see through from start to finish, enabling me to take on new tasks as the scheme progresses.
This stream of work is very different to the valuation and viability work which I have gained a significant amount of experience in since September and whilst they complement each other, my involvement in this project is giving me the opportunity to experience the agency world, allowing me to develop new skills and meet new clients. Although I still have a lot to learn, I have already taken in a lot of new information due to the level of responsibility I have been given which is definitely the best way to learn!
