International real estate advisor Savills has appointed a new head of residential development sales. Joe Shorney, who will be based at the firm’s Birmingham office, will head up the newly formed residential development sales department in the West Midlands which specialises in the sale of new homes and development consultancy.

Joe, a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, has 11 years experience in the property industry having worked in the office agency department for GBR Phoenix Beard for almost five years and subsequently Savills following the merger in 2016. Prior to this, he worked as a residential agent for an independent property firm in Solihull, where he held a senior role for seven years.

Joe comments: “I am delighted to have transferred to the residential development sales team within Savills at such a prominent time for the new homes markets in Birmingham and the wider region. I relish the opportunity of establishing a new department in Birmingham and look forward to utilising my 11 years agency experience to date in both the residential and commercial markets to build trusted relationships with developers on a local and national level”.

The role will cover Birmingham city centre and surrounding suburbs as well as the wider region including Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire and Leamington Spa.

George Cardale, head of residential development sales for Savills UK, adds: “We have been aware of the increasing need for a residential development sales team in the midlands and we are delighted to have appointed Joe, who is already making his mark.

“Joe’s background and experience, combined with his knowledge of the area means that he is extremely well placed to develop the business in this key part of the country, bridging the gap between our established teams in the north, south and west of England”.
