Aquinna Homes, which incorporates Argyll Developments, is composed of a small team of experts with a simple goal: to offer a new approach to home-building within the residential market. The company builds properties throughout Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Berkshire under Managing Director Stephen Brazier, who has been in the position since May 2005. The firm values individuality and attention to detail and is dedicated to creating both an outstanding customer service experience and superior quality homes. Aquinna Homes believes its thinking sets it apart from its larger peers, finding solutions that others would never contemplate, while constantly taking a long term view to continue building on its brand. The company describes its approach as a rejection of the ordinary, the predictable and the formulaic in favour of the exciting, the unconventional and the challenging. “We pride ourselves on spending a lot of time designing our products, both internally and externally, and we get excellent feedback from our customers. That’s really what drives us and spurs us on to do greater things in the future,” says Brazier. Aquinna Homes is currently developing sites throughout Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Kent and Berkshire, with homes available for purchase now in Chiswick, Kingston, New Malden and West Malling. Brazier added: “Our product is very much focused on the mid-market, not the prime Central London market, which is very different and not one that we deal with. We sell to real people, typically middle managers trying to move up the housing ladder, and build our houses and specify our houses accordingly. We always try and exceed our customers’ expectations.”
