Savills Cardiff recruits residential development expert

Real estate firm, Savills, has further strengthened its market-leading development team in Cardiff with the appointment of Caroline Jones as an associate director.

[aoa id=”1″]Caroline has more than 20 years’ experience as a surveyor in the residential development market in South Wales. She joins Savills from Bruton Knowles, where she worked in the social housing and development team. She has also worked in the residential valuation and development teams at BNP Paribas Real Estate and for Chesterton and Torfaen County Borough Council.[/aoa]

She said: “I am thrilled to become part of the team at Savills. The largest specialist team in South Wales, its reputation for success precedes it. Having spent my entire career in the residential development market, I look forward to supporting the team’s growth in this area.

“My interest in residential development extends as far back as I can remember, and since graduating with a BSc in Estate Management Surveying from the University of Glamorgan in 1998, I haven’t looked back. Now is a particularly critical time for housebuilding in Wales. The drive to deliver many more homes is a key agenda point for Welsh Government and the new housing minister is prioritising a collaborative approach to meet the need for affordable provision.”

Scott Caldwell, heads up Savills development team in Cardiff. He comments:

“Caroline is already proving to be a valuable asset within our expert team, specialising in consultancy, valuation and agency work. With decades of experience on the residential side of development, she brings with her a wealth of specialist knowledge and creative thinking. Being born and bred in South Wales, she knows the issues at play in our market inside out, and has hit the ground running since she joined.”
