Regency Residential, an integrated property agency and investment firm, has launched in Manchester.

The company is directly involved in identifying, choosing, planning and developing all sites owned by its strategic partner Intro Developments.

Regency Residential projects produce stand-alone investment and homes as they do not require investors monies as capital for any of the developments due to being financially backed by private Trusts and Funds.

Its property pipeline of 4,500 residential units include and are not limited to conversions and new build projects – some of which are part of schemes that are in the process of being sold to the public, are in planning or are due to go to planning.

Managing director Christopher Taylor this week announced that Michael Fenlon has joined Regency Residential as sales and marketing director. Michael previously worked for property investment firm Knight Knox and Get Living London / QDD, developer of the London 2012 Olympic Athletes’ Village.

Tara Homayounbod, who has a background in e-commerce, has also been appointed as Regency Residential marketing manager.

Chris, a property expert with more than 15 years’ experience in the industry, said: “Now is the perfect time to launch Regency Residential. We are Manchester-based, have a national and international focus, and boast a pipeline of property, with developments in the north west, Birmingham, Yorkshire, Scotland, Ireland, Bristol, London and the home counties.

“Regency Residential works in partnership with Intro Developments and is involved from the start of any project whether it is a commercial scheme, a conversion or a new build.”

He added: “The developments are self-funded as they have the support of private finance, Trusts and Funds, enabling an offering of stand-alone homes or investments. Regency Residential only require a minimum payment of 10 per cent on exchange. This is such a rarity, especially when compared with other companies in the investment market, as essentially our clients’ money is protected and not used to fund any of the build.

“With Mike, Tara and the Regency Residential team’s expertise, we feel we are very much equipped for what lies ahead in 2017.”

Regency Residential also provides homes and investment opportunities which offer high specification products that meet CML (Council of Mortgage Lenders) standards.

On joining the company Michael Fenlon said: “Regency has in place a team of expert property consultants and I’m excited to have joined.

“With both Chris and Tara, plus the rest of the team, we are going to make a genuine difference to both home seekers and investors, as we provide high-quality accommodation at an attractive price.”
