Adlington Retirement Living launches resales service

Tim Crichton

Adlington Retirement Living is launching a resales service to support homeowners and their families wanting to sell their apartments.

Adlington Estates will be led by Simon Crewe, a director at the developer and operator, and managed by Tim Crichton, who has been appointed to a new role of resales manager.

Crichton joins the business with 10 years’ experience as an estate agent in Congleton, Macclesfield, Northwich, and Holmes Chapel in the North West.

Adlington Estates customers will have their properties marketed on the Adlington Retirement Living website, as well as general property portals such as Rightmove. Viewings will be managed by Adlington at each retirement community.

The service for homeowners and their families is part of the strategic expansion of the business.

Since 2008, it has launched 15 integrated retirement communities across the North West, Yorkshire, Wales and the Midlands. In the past six years it has grown from 30 employees to more than 200, with professionals from land acquisition, planning, architectural and technical design, to procurement, construction, sales and marketing, legal and community operations.

‘Adlington Estates will complement our growing business and provide another high-quality service to our homeowners and their families,’ said Dr Ed Gladman, Adlington Retirement Living chief executive.

‘Another important aspect of this new service is to help retain the best value for our customers. The resale value matters to Adlington to ensure our communities thrive today and in the future.’

Gladman will be featured in the April issue of Care Markets UK, which is due to be published later this week.
