Sarah Curtis joins Rettie & Co as director of new homes
Estate agency firm Rettie & Co has appointed Sarah Curtis, formerly of Savills and Strutt & Parker, as director of new homes.
This senior level appointment has been made to support their new homes sales and marketing team, who have been responsible for selling over £100 million of new build property developments over the last 12 months.
Ms Curtis is returning home to Scotland where she started her career in Edinburgh in 2007, having worked in the London residential development sector for the last 14 years. She brings a wealth of experience across the development lifecycle having advised developers, house builders and local authorities on all aspects from site acquisition, feasibility, financial viability in planning, scheme optimisation and specification through to implementation of domestic and international sales campaigns.
Rettie & Co has welcomed Ms Curtis to the company at a time when senior leadership and experienced decision making is more important than ever, as the market conditions combined with the local complexities of ADS and income tax changes in the Scottish budget are challenging.
The Rettie & Co research team, led by Dr John Boyle, director of research & strategy, continues to support all areas of the business with the best possible insights and have recently forecast a 5% drop in the average house price (as measured by ONS) as part of a revised outlook for 2023 in their latest market report.
Matthew Benson, director of development services at Rettie & Co, said: “I am delighted to have welcomed Sarah to the Rettie & Co. Development Services department.
“Sarah has a proven track-record within residential development having worked on some fantastic landmark development projects and brings with her leadership skills which will help us to realise the full business potential we have in our New Homes division.”
Sarah Curtis said: “I am delighted to be joining Rettie & Co. to support and grow an already strong and well recognised division of the brand. It’s an exciting opportunity to work with an outstanding team, who have a well-deserved reputation for delivering exceptional service for their clients.
“I am looking forward to meeting our valued clients over the coming weeks and months, and supporting their needs and ambitions for 2023.”
