Bruton Knowles has welcomed a national property expert to its Manchester team as part of plans to expand its urban residential offering to clients.
Tony Bray has joined the firm as Partner and Manchester Team Manager and will work with landowners, developers and investors to advise on acquisition, use optimisation and funding of urban residential developments, including build-to-rent apartments, student accommodation and serviced apartments.
He has 25 years’ experience of working within the property industry to Bruton Knowles, after running his own investment and development consultancy, Pure Real Estate Solutions, and being a partner at one of the world’s largest commercial property consultants, Cushman & Wakefield.
Tony said: “I joined Bruton Knowles to offer clients a more detailed understanding of urban developments, and provide support building relationships with developers and investors.
“There is much potential with the residential sector in its widest definition, and I am looking forward to working with clients across the region to help them build their portfolios.
Patrick Downes, managing partner of Bruton Knowles said: “Tony brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the commercial sector and we are pleased that he has chosen to join the firm at such a key stage in the development of our Manchester team.”
“His knowledge of the region will be invaluable to both new and existing clients and his skill set will enable us to continue to offer the highest level of consultancy advice.”
