Tony Bray has joined property consultant Bruton Knowles as partner to work on urban residential developments.
Bray joins after spending the past four-and-a-half years running his own consultancy, Pure Real Estate Solutions. Bray was formerly an office agent and ran the Manchester office of Cushman & Wakefield for seven years before his departure in November 2012.
At Bruton Knowles, Bray will advise clients on projects including build-to-rent apartments, student accommodation and serviced apartments.
Bray said: “I joined Bruton Knowles to offer clients a more detailed understanding of urban developments, and provide support building relationships with developers and investors. There is much potential with the residential sector in its widest definition, and I am looking forward to working with clients across the region to help them build their portfolios.”
Patrick Downes, managing partner of Bruton Knowles, said: “Tony brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the commercial sector and we are pleased that he has chosen to join the firm at such a key stage in the development of our Manchester team.”
“His knowledge of the region will be invaluable to both new and existing clients and his skill set will enable us to continue to offer the highest level of consultancy advice.”
Bruton Knowles has 13 offices across the UK.
