"My firm has been doing business with Whitgift Estates for many years. The reason for this, quite frankly, is because they get on with things. Many firms promise the earth but never perform. Whitgift Estates always come forward with viable proposals and move them forward proactively. In any market that attribute is important; in tough markets that attribute is paramount.”
Matthew Hollywood BSc Hon (Partner - Mishon Mackay Land)
"Lee and I formed a business partnership following working to deliver an upmarket residential scheme in Dorking - with ourselves as Contractors and Lee as the Developer. The constructive manner in which Lee co-ordinated all parties from site acquisition, design, development, marketing and final sales led me into wanting Lee on board for future joint venture schemes - we are now indeed working together on such opportunities. Lee would be an asset to any client/contractor on residential/commercial schemes being considered."
Clive Beard (Managing Director - Beasons Construction & Development Ltd
"If like me you have little experience in relation to; obtaining planning permissions, new build construction or comprehensive renovation projects and are considering involvement in such processes, I strongly suggest that you instruct Lee Murphy in this regard (as I have done very successfully). Not only will his involvement save you from umpteen (usually costly) disasters, mistakes or bullies 'pulling the wool over your eyes', it will relieve you of having to deal with matters and situations that can be utterly frustrating!"
Mike Ormiston (Property Owner & Investor)
"I have known Lee in a professional capacity for 5 years now - ever since he approached us with a view to acquiring our 188 acre site in Lancing. His previous company was unable to complete the purchase of the site but the experience of working with Lee was a hugely positive one - so much so that when he set up his own company in 2008 he was the person to whom we turned to manage the strategic promotion and subsequent development of our site. Whilst Lee has been managing the promotion process we have taken the site from an idea and a long shot, to a site that now has the support of Adur District Council for a strategic allocation to provide circa 550 homes and 400,000 sqft of mixed commercial space. Lee's involvement has been fundamental to the site's success and we will continue to utilise his extensive development and commercial management skills through the delivery and/or disposal process."
Paul Roelich (Director/Shareholder - New Monks Farm Development Ltd)
"Having first worked with Lee when we came together on a development plan in Wolverhampton for Parkridge Securities, we quickly discovered that his pragmatic and empowering approach to Development Management fitted with our approach to construction consultancy. It is of no surprise to us that since setting up Whitgift Estates it has continued to go from strength to strength. We look forward to many more years of working together."
