Lincolnshire residential developer, Homes by Stirlin, has announced the appointment of Tony Lawton as managing director. Tony joins Homes by Stirlin to spearhead the firm’s ongoing expansion strategy and brings with him over 30 years of expertise and reputation in residential development, having previously been MD of Lindum Homes.
Established in 2016, Homes by Stirlin was set up by brother and sister team James Kirby and Abigail Purdy and sisters Jo Costall and Victoria Hilliard. It is the result of two families with strong backgrounds in local development and construction, coming together with a shared passion to deliver high-quality homes in prime locations.
Since its inception, Homes by Stirlin has quickly established a reputation for excellent build quality. Its first development – Lodge Lane, in Nettleham – brought 40 new homes to the market with a further four to be released soon, along with developments in Saxilby and Brant Road.
With an increasing number of new residential developments in the pipeline, the role of managing director has been created to deliver Homes by Stirlin’s ambitious growth strategy. Tony will lead the expansion plans using his wealth of practical experience and sound understanding of what discerning home buyers require from a modern and efficient home.
Tony said of his new role: “Homes by Stirlin is going from strength to strength with a number of sites to be announced next year. We are also looking for short-term sites for immediate delivery, medium-term sites to take through the planning process and long-term sites as part of our strategic planning. In addition, we are also looking to further expand the Homes by Stirlin team.
“I’m proud to be a part of this impressive company and I’m looking forward to being part of the team on our onward journey.”
Managing director of Stirlin Developments and director of Homes by Stirlin, James Kirby, said: “Our ambition is to be one of the leading local residential developers. Homes by Stirlin continues to welcome demand from buyers wanting exclusive homes within highly desirable locations – and to help us continue to meet that demand and achieve our aspirations for the future – we have appointed Tony as managing director.
“Tony’s reputation proceeds him. Myself and the entire Stirlin team are elated to have him on board. Having Tony join Homes by Stirlin is a milestone for us and we are confident that with him at the helm, Homes by Stirlin will continue to thrive; delivering beautiful homes and providing first-class customer service to our buyers.”
Jo Costall, director of Homes by Stirlin, added: “Homes by Stirlin has come a long way in a short space of time, our residential developments offer a superb place for people to live. We are extremely proud that our first development, Lodge Lane in Nettleham, has been nominated for a Premier Guarantee Excellence Award.
“With an increasing focus on expansion and the acquisition of a number of new sites, we are very much looking forward to 2020.
