Savills appoints Head of New Homes

David Browne has joined property consultants Savills Ireland as Head of their New Homes Department. David joins Savills from Knight Frank (formerly HT Meagher O’Reilly), where he was Managing Director of HT Meagher O’Reilly New Homes.

On his new post David Browne had this to say, “I am delighted to be joining Savills as Head of New Homes. On a personal level, this is an excellent opportunity to be involved with a dynamic company at such an exciting time in the new homes market. With the strengthening of house prices and rents in the Dublin area, it is clearly evident that there is a severe shortage of stock, which is fuelling significant demand for new homes, a sector that will grow rapidly over the next three years. By working closely with our successful development land division we will be offering our clients the very best in specialist new homes consultancy and advice.

Commenting on the appointment Mark Reynolds, Director of Savills Ireland, “Over the last 12-18 months we have taken a long hard look at the residential business & market – our analysis has told us that the market is turning & the outlook is bright. So it made sense for us to draft in someone with the expertise that David has. His proven track record in the Irish residential property market fills us with confidence for the Savills new homes department.

David concluded, “Savills has always been a market leader in the New Homes sector and along with my team we plan to grow and expand our market share. I am looking forward to working with, and growing, this well-established and premium brand, with its fantastic international network”.
