Christmas comes early – Senior Land Manager joins Redrow East Midlands

An East Midlands housebuilder has bolstered its team with the appointment of a new Senior Land Manager.


Joining the Redrow East Midland’s acquisitions team, Anabel Christmas, from Nottingham, will support new developments in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Anabel, who has over twenty years’ experience, is a chartered surveyor, and has previously worked in Land Agency and Development Consultancy for Jones Lang Lasalle. Returning to the housebuilder side of the industry, Anabel’s new position will see her acquiring both short- and long-term land opportunities for Redrow’s East Midlands division.

Anabel said:

“I was first drawn to the property industry in 2004, after completing my degree, as I was keen to change the gender imbalance in what has previously been a male dominated industry.

“Two decades on, I’m pleased to say the industry has changed for the better. I’ve worked for a number of housebuilders, supporting with strategic land acquisition, as well as a number of landowners, including Homes England, County Councils and the NHS.

“Having also worked in a consultancy previously, selling land to the likes of Redrow, I understand both sides of the coin, and I am looking forward to being part of an already fantastic acquisitions team securing land opportunities to continue to drive the division’s growth.”

Speaking on the industries greatest challenge following the pandemic, Anabel added:

“The pandemic has brought about challenges the industry could not have anticipated, and while the housing market has remained buoyant, planning decision delays mean that landowners are more hesitant to sell. We’re currently operating in a very competitive market, and securing the right land, for the right price, and at the right time is imperative.”

Andy Noton, Land Director for Redrow East Midlands, added:

“Anabel’s wealth of knowledge, both from a land owner and purchaser perspective, will be incredibly beneficial to the team, and we’re thrilled to have her on board.

“Here at Redrow, we’re committed to spotting talent, and are always on the lookout for people who can bring additional experience, context and understanding to a role, to help further the success of the business.

“Anabel joins the division at a pivotal time as we go through a period of growth, and we look forward to having her on board for what’s set to be an exciting time for the division.”

Redrow East Midlands is building a range of developments across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, offering two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, suited for families, couples and those looking to rightsize. All of Redrow’s thriving communities offer great transport links, providing the perfect balance between town and country life.
