UK, 22 May 2023 – Property consultancy Rapleys has launched a new residential team spearheaded by Residential Partner Angus Irvine. The team – ‘Rapleys Living’ will sit in the Residential Division, recently made into one of four key service offers in the organisation – and will encompass all residential agency functions including residential development agency (land acquisitions and disposals), senior living (care and retirement), student and co-living and Build to Rent (both Multifamily and Single Family Housing).
The residential development agency service, previously led by Angus before he took on his expanded new role, will now be headed up by Tom Spencer, who joins Rapleys from Savills, where he was Development Director.
Tom is a specialist in residential, mixed-use and infrastructure related development across the South-East and in addition to Savills has also worked for a plc housebuilder and held general practice surveying roles within both the residential and commercial sectors.
Nick Fell, Head of Residential at Rapleys, said: “We are really pleased to have secured Tom Spencer as our new Head of Residential Development Agency. He brings a wealth of experience and will be a key part of our continued growth in the Residential Sector. The last 12 months have been hugely transformative for our business with a new brand, several acquisitions, the reorganisation of the business around fewer core Divisions and a huge investment in people. We are serious about continuing our growth in the right ways and the launch of Rapleys Living, led by Angus Irvine, is a major step forwards in our ambitions. As such, we are looking at opportunities to launch other residential agency-related services and hire talented people to further grow our expertise and knowledge in this area.”
Rapleys’ market leading Affordable Housing and Development Consulting team sits alongside Rapleys Living within the Residential Division.
