Colliers International is expanding its residential business with two senior hires joining the New Homes team in the New Year.
Mike Bickerton is joining as head of new homes and Nanette Hung as an associate director in the team, with a focus on growing Colliers’ foothold in the residential sales market. Both previously worked for the residential team at Cushman and Wakefield. Mike was previously a partner and head of new homes at the firm having worked there for 25 years, and Nanette joined three years ago from CBRE.
Andrew White, Head of Residential at Colliers, said: “During the last 12 months we have reshaped and focused our team to ensure that we can offer clients access to the best experts and innovative thinkers around land sales, build to rent, international properties and new homes. Despite 2020 being a difficult year for all businesses, we’ve managed to secure some significant deals across our service lines and expanding our team with additional experience and expertise from both Mike and Nanette will help to raise our profile in this sector. I look forward to welcoming them to the team in the New Year.”
Mike added: “It’s clear that the UK housing market is strong, resilient and growing. It’s an exciting opportunity to join the Colliers team and leverage their unique platform to offer a truly seamless and cost-effective UK and global sales service to our clients.”
Nanette will join the team as a development sales manager, she added: “Having worked in London and internationally on the new homes mandate it’s clear there is continued appetite for overseas residential investment into the UK. I’m hoping to help build those bridges with international investors and Colliers’ clients.”
