Chestertons has appointed Foxtons’ former area director of new homes, Mark Goodeve-Docker, as its new head of residential developments, just a few weeks after hiring former Foxtons operations director Iain Bailey as its new director and head of property management.
Spearheading an ambitious growth strategy, Goodeve-Docker’s objective is to quadruple the size of Chestertons’ current new homes department over the next few years and establish a one-stop shop for developers.
Goodeve-Docker started his career of 18 years at Foxtons as a negotiator and then valuer before moving over to the company’s new homes department, covering all areas of London. He was later promoted to director and then area director, where he oversaw the substantial growth of the new homes team over a period of 14 years.
He said: “Working in new homes is like having a front row seat of the future of London. Over the years, I’ve witnessed the transformation of many previously unloved parts of London and, with strong demand from buyers, the capital will continue to see new and exciting regeneration projects. I look forward to sharing my passion with the Chestertons team and extending our already wide range of services further.”
Richard Davies, MD of Chestertons, commented: “His [Goodeve-Docker’s] extensive knowledge of London’s property market, as well as his expertise in the new homes sector in particular, will present a real asset to help transform our new homes department.”
Chestertons, which has 32 offices across the capital, recently appointed former Foxtons operations director Iain Bailey, who spent 17 years with the estate agency.
