Buyacarehome welcome Fleurets to the group.

It has been just over three months since I joined the Fleurets team and our Healthcare sector launched, during which time I have seen an extraordinary demand for both existing businesses and developers. This has put Fleurets at quite a unique advantage in the market, able to leverage our strong links with the established side of our leisure property business – drawing on over 200 years of experience in the sector, to service the growing demand in the healthcare sector with development and land opportunities.  This is proving especially true in the supported living and specialist care market, with a number of instructions being marketed across the entire Fleurets network.

In such a short amount of time, I have already seen first-hand what we can deliver for clients on both the disposal and acquisition side with our in depth knowledge and experience in two very specialist sectors. Most recently, this resulted in an offer of an off market joint venture scheme, which was brought to life by leveraging our existing connections in the leisure side of the business. 

I joined the team back in December as Divisional Director and Head of Healthcare, and it has been anything but a slow start. While the industry is still trying to navigate through an array of issues including increasing utility costs and a staffing crisis, I have been speaking to a multitude of operators who have a clear remit for growth – be that via acquisition or construction. There is a strong appetite within the industry for growth, and Fleurets are perfectly positioned to provide for this.

It was Fleurets’ professionalism, integrity and existing reputation that drew me towards joining the team and it is those qualities that have already been recognised within the healthcare industry and which I plan to continue carrying forward as we grow our presence within the industry. I will be at the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards in March 2022 and Fleurets is a proud sponsor of the Caring UK Awards and look forward to meeting up with old and new contacts.

During my almost 20 years in the care real estate industry, I have worked on transactions at individual, regional and national corporate level.  Each deal is unique and at Fleurets, we put clients at the forefront of every transaction, working with your existing professional advisors, or helping you access the right experts for you.
