Welcome, Chris and Derwent!

If Alpha Estates were a Premier League football club we’d be spoken of, by pundits, as a team that is “rebuilding”. “Putting all the pieces together to become title contenders” or maybe “adding new pieces to fit around the culture of the club’. Safe to say that’s where the analogy ends but it is true. We are very much in rebuild mode. So here are some of our recent developments…

A good place to start is to inform you that our much anticipated (and much needed) new website is on it’s way. It’s looking good and feeling good. A mercurial site that will make visiting Alpha Estates online a pleasant and effortless experience, whether you’re looking for a new home or trying to find someone you can trust to sell the one you have. So watch this space for a countdown to it’s launch.

It’s, also, now a genuine pleasure to welcome Chris, to Alpha, on a full time basis. He’s taken to his new role like a duck to water and has already overseen and safely negotiated his way through his first couple of sales! He has brought with him a sense of urgency, fun and enthusiasm that is more than welcome around the office and I know he’s going to be a great asset and credit to this business and this industry, as a whole.

Finally, as if that wasn’t enough of a complete sensory overload, allow me to introduce you to Derwent Smithurst. Derwent is at the helm of Alpha Estates Alderney. A shiny, new franchise and one that delights us greatly! Alderney is a gleaming jewel in our Bailiwick crown and has a lively property market. Derwent is a former Aurigny pilot and all round top bloke. It has been a lot of fun getting to know him, as he has spent many, many weeks (over the last few months) in Guernsey, learning and honing new skills. Derwent is our main man on the ground, and our first port of call, in Alderney. So join us in welcoming him to the Alpha family and wish him all the best as he sets out on a totally new and very cool venture…

I guess that’s enough, for now! With the property market in it’s strange and current state it seems like a good time to be laying the foundations and platform to rebuild and reshape our successful enterprise. It goes without saying that if you have any questions about property, or otherwise, then feel free to seek out our help, expertise and advice, without obligation. I am confident we have the team that can help you on your way.
