I’ve worked in this area since I graduated and I’m really keen to see Butters John Bee become the number one choice for land and new homes in the area.”
Reflecting on the promotion, Tim Wardley, Spicerhaart Land and New Homes managing director, commented: “It’s great to see Carlos taking the lead on land and new homes for this region.

H&H Land & Estates moves premises
H&H Land & Estates has moved premises in Penrith following the acquisition of Eden Lettings Management last autumn.
The company has moved from its Devonshire Street office to St Andrew’s View.
The move follows the firm’s acquisition of Eden Lettings Management last autumn, enabling the firm expand and offer sales and lettings from one location.
With space across three floors, the building has been redesigned to offer room for hot desking for other divisions of the H&H Group, including H&H Land & Estates’ rural division, H&H Insurance Brokers and H&H Auction Rooms.
The Penrith office will be managed by recently appointed Sue Jackson, who will be supported by Shirley Thompson, joint founder of Eden Lettings Management, who will head up the lettings division. A team of five people will work at the new office.
Kate Patrick, head of estate agency, said: “We have loved working in Devonshire Street, but unfortunately it just doesn’t have enough space.
“The purchase of Eden Lettings Management means we have expanded both our staff and business reach, so the space we work in needs to expand too.
“We will provide new and existing customers with a broader range of services and further develop our sales and lettings portfolio in the Penrith area.”
