Retirement Villages’ has appointed Chris Buck as Regional New Homes Sales Manager. Chris will focus on managing new home sales at Charters Village in West Sussex and Moat Park in Essex, before taking the reins at brand new villages in the pipeline.
Chris will drive new build property sales at these sites, both of which are undergoing rapid expansion with nine new cottages at Moat Park launching in May and the final phase of development at Charters Village – 24 two-bedroom apartments due to launch in 2019.
Chris joins the company with over 30 years experience in the property sector, having worked in senior sales positions at Savills, as well as Hamptons International.
“I have always had an interest in property and have worked alongside retirement developers in the past. I think what these developments offer retirees is really unique – independent living but with added peace of mind that help is available if and when needed. I therefore jumped at the opportunity to work in such a rapidly evolving and growing market.”
“I am delighted to join the sales team at Retirement Villages and work alongside such a passionate team of people,” says Chris. “We take the time to get to know our customers, ensuring the retirement village lifestyle is right for them.”
“My first few weeks have been very eventful, I have been visiting all of the villages across the UK and can honestly say that each one of them has their own identity. It’s an incredibly exciting time for the business and I’m looking forward to seeing the two new villages Gradwell Park in East Sussex and Newport near Saffron Walden come to life over the coming months.”
Chris lives in Horsham in Surrey with his wife, three horses and four sheep and enjoys music, reading and cooking in his spare time.
