• Development & luxury care home experts

    Our fast-paced agency team handles the sale and acquisition of property businesses throughout the UK in the health & social care sector. We are a market leading agent of development land and and we are one of the few dedicated practices that are regulated by the RICS.

Our ability to sell developments quickly and add value to acquisition searches is fuelled by our in-depth local market knowledge and expert opinion. Our wide network of more than 400 clients includes 85% of the top 20 care home group operators.

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, we work closely alongside our Advisory division to offer a competitive edge and an unparalleled insight into the sector’s dynamics and opportunities.


Driven by our sector-specialist knowledge in health & social care, our acquisition services range from discreetly approaching the decision maker connected to a carefully identified opportunity, through to negotiating a price and agreeing heads of terms.

Our database of over 7,000 care home contacts, and capability of finding many more, makes us well placed for developing the right connections. Moreover, our vast experience in the acquisition of health & social care property ensures we are well equipped to successfully overcome any hurdles along the way.


We are one of the most active development agents in the sector and have the ability to maximise sales prices through our extensive network of purchasers developed over more than 10 years. Our consultancy division gives us high visibility of operator development pipelines and unrivalled market intelligence. Ultimately, we know who is looking to buy and where. This allows us to achieve quicker, more successful sales with minimal marketing.

Whether you are looking to sell a development site or high quality trading business, our expert advice and track record will give you peace of mind that we will achieve your objectives, including the best possible price in the shortest possible timeframe.


Benefiting from the data and intelligence of our dedicated consultancy team, we can improve decision making from the onset by determining a number of acquisition opportunities that fit with your business objectives.

Here our focus is on the quality and not the quantity of opportunities we present. This is only achieved with our in-depth local market knowledge coupled with a deep understanding of your business plan and objectives.
