All about business

Since opening Thomas Connolly Estate Agents together a number of years ago, Company Directors Neal Butler and Joe Connolly have watched their business grow from strength to strength. Now firmly embedded in the community of Milton Keynes, Neal and Joe want to take the opportunity to thank all of the clients, suppliers, buyers and sellers, tenants and landlords who have helped them to develop Thomas Connolly Estate Agents into the fastest growing estate agency in Milton Keynes. For Neal and Joe, their vision is simple: “Sharing our core values and aspirations with our clients inevitably lead us to achieve the same goals. Working with each client through every step of the process was how we formed our foundations. This allowed us to build our reputation and become a market leader throughout Milton Keynes and surrounding villages.”

By developing Thomas Connolly Estate Agents, Neal and Joe have successfully created a brand that is now synonymous with the property market in and around Milton Keynes. In no small part due to the continued support of the local community, Thomas Connolly Estate Agents has developed and evolved to become the business that it is today. The aim of Thomas Connolly Estate Agents is a clear one: offering a whole new standard in property sales, lettings and management services to Milton Keynes whilst providing clients with the most efficient and comprehensive property service possible. With an ever growing team of highly knowledgeable and qualified agents, Thomas Connolly Estate Agents provides the highest quality of care and professionalism whether you are buying, selling or letting. As a partner led independent estate agency Thomas Connolly Estate Agency is not constrained by out-dated practices and has the freedom to evolve and adapt to clients ever changing needs. The addition of full membership of The Property Ombudsman scheme, vendors, landlords, buyers and tenants can be confident that Thomas Connolly Estate Agents will observe completely ethical and professional services at all times.

With both familial and personal links to the area, Thomas Connolly Estate Agents is more than just a business investment for Neal and Joe; more so, it is an investment in the continued development and growth of the community of Milton Keynes, which is perhaps why its latest business venture focuses on creating new property opportunities for the people of Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. The main aim of Haart & Hillcrest is to unlock the potential for the area through the acquisition of oversized and unmanageable gardens and other surplus land. Then, taking into account local property design in the area, and the needs of potential purchasers, Neal and Joe aim to create sympathetic, small-scale and bespoke property developments, and are developing new homes for the local area. Though for this pair, it is not simply a case of building new homes, but building a community that Neal and Joe are incredibly proud to be a part of.

It is this sense of community that, two years ago, spurred Neal and Joe on to diversify their business interests by opening Fourth & Fifth, an eatery in the centre of Milton Keynes. Becoming the town’s first independent breakfast, coffee and brunch venue, it has quickly become a popular favourite with local residents and business people alike. Through close partnerships with local independent retailers and suppliers, Fourth & Fifth is proud to be a local social destination serving the community of Milton Keynes. And if that’s not enough, being fully licensed to serve alcohol from opening until close is sure to tickle your tastebuds.

And so, as Milton Keynes continues to cement its place in the future of innovation for business, Neal Butler and Joe Connolly are delighted to be playing their part in its progress.
