Simon Marsh

New Home Consultant

As a qualified Building Designer with 19 years’ experience in the building industry, new homes are my thing. I’m a problem solver by nature, so piecing together a client’s requirements and wish lists into a creative, yet practical design solution is what I love doing day after day.

The best results have customers moving into their new home feeling as though they’ve made the right choices throughout the process – the right layout, the right functionality, and the right visual appeal.

Building a new home is more than selecting a product; it’s a personalised item that requires personalised service. My clients are everyday people who dream of a home they can feel proud of and be comfortable in every day – my role is to turn that dream into reality.
