Sequence has appointed a new homes investment manager as a conduit between developers looking to sell off-plan units and investors looking for the best investments. Nicole Shipperley, who retains her role in the new homes sales team for Barnard Marcus, will act as a single point of contact for developers and investors, managing the process to provide customers with the best opportunities. Nicole will have access to developer stock nationwide via the national network.
“I provide a dedicated service, matching developers with individuals, pension funds and institutional clients who aim to acquire off-plan residential blocks or tenanted schemes across a portfolio of developments,” says Nicole. “Our bespoke approach ensures that we introduce potential investors to schemes that meet their objectives, working closely with our developers to ensure successful sales of their sites.” 44 graduates and seven apprentices have taken the first steps of their real estate careers with Cushman & Wakefield, including four in the firm’s Manchester office.
The graduates will spend the next two years working towards a professional qualification through the RICS, CIBSE and RTPI. They have a structured five-year programme, including studying part-time for a BSc undergraduate degree, and will also work towards their APC in their final two years.
Graduates Will Waters, Nathan Murray, Hattie Power and Joe Walsh have joined Cushman & Wakefield’s Manchester office, based at No.1 Marsden Street.
Caroline Baker, Head of Cushman & Wakefield’s Manchester office, said, “I’m pleased to welcome another talented and enthusiastic intake of graduates to our Manchester office this year. All our graduates and apprentices are given opportunities to prove themselves from the start which is a key factor in our APC success rate. Will, Nathan, Hattie and Joe will follow in the footsteps of last year’s new starts who have quickly established themselves as valued members of the Manchester team.”
