If there’s one thing that Milton Keynes loves, it’s innovation.
And Thomas Connolly has displayed it in abundance by transforming the local estate agency scene in recent times by throwing away the rule book to create a new style of agency for the modern generation.
The independent estate agency’s mission is to bring MK a whole new standard in property sales, lettings and management services.
And you only need to look at the operations of the business this summer to see that Thomas Connolly does things very differently to most.
Many estate agents enjoyed a quiet summer, taking holidays and unwinding during the traditional seasonal downturn in the housing market.
But if you had walked into Thomas Connolly’s modern office in Rillaton Walk at The Hub, you would have seen a bustling hive of activity as the hand-picked ‘dream team’ of top MK property professionals were hard at work on the company’s next successes.
Staff were busy providing a boost to the Milton Keynes economy by selling luxury local homes to families from oil-rich countries such as Kuwait, Qatar and Dubai – utilising the unique links forged by managing directors Joe Connolly (pictured above) and Neal Butler (pictured below).
They also secured a deal with a local developer to sell a host of new properties at The Moorings in Fenny Stratford (below), as well as holding regular staff meetings to prepare for the expected domestic housing boom in September.
Joe explained: “While everyone has had their summer hats on we’ve been working hard to continue the growth of the business.
“Middle Eastern families have been buying luxury local houses from us. We’ve had lots of Kuwaiti people living in MK throughout July, August and some of September, spending lots of money here.
“They are lovely people and it has kept us very busy – it’s great for the local economy that they are still buying into MK.
“We’ve also been instructed to sell 39 homes at a rarely available new canalside estate in Fenny Stratford called The Moorings.
“We have high-spec three, four and five bedroom homes overlooking the canal available from a five-star builder, which will be ready by next year.
“We are accepting early bird reservations now for people interested in buying off-plan.
“We’ve grown our workforce too and been preparing for September, when UK buyers will be back in the full swing of things after summer. We are expecting a very active September and October.”
