Estate agent Hamptons has launched a new residential investment department that will be responsible for providing the link between the current Build to Rent leasing team, new homes, development consultancy, and the land and Research teams.

The new department will be led by Ashley Mason who has returned to the company after 12 years.

“I am excited to be back at Hamptons, re-joining the business after 12 years at other firms in the UK, including Knight Frank after which I emigrated to Australia to work developer side garnering invaluable exposure to global markets.

“Whilst the current political and economic headwinds no doubt pose a challenge to the industry, I strongly believe in the UK’s central position in property investment, and I am eager to reconnect with previous clients and contacts across the industry. 

“This role marks an exciting opportunity for me to contribute my expertise in what is a dynamic and client-focused environment. This new department will play a crucial role in providing existing and future clients with a comprehensive and seamless service, thereby reinforcing Hamptons’ position as a leading player in the property sector.”

The team will offer a dedicated advisory service across all residential asset categories, which includes retirement living, bulk sales, Build to Rent transactions and advisory services, as well as land sales and acquisitions – also focusing on strengthening key strategic relationships with new and existing clients.

The launch of Hamptons residential investment department comes at a time when the importance of being able to work across multiple residential asset classes to ensure best in class advice and transactions and advisory services has become crucial.

“I am absolutely delighted that Ashley is joining the team. He fits perfectly with our model of bringing in high-quality individuals who are agile and able to provide best-in-class service to our clients.

“This department is one of the final pieces in the puzzle for us and will bring together our exceptional Build to Rent leasing team, research and Residential Development business.

“Additionally, via the Connels group, we have unrivalled exposure nationwide and deliver one in 10 sales of all new homes throughout the UK, giving us a unique offering to our clients.”
