Meet our key people

DEDICATED TO BUILDING QUALITY HOMES

The Dere Street team is at the heart of our business, combining design and project management skills with years of construction and land buying experience. On their own, these skills are valuable enough, but combined in a relatively small and flexible team we think we have an unbeatable formula for building superb homes in great locations.

It’s this team who will guide you through all your dealings with us, whether this be purchasing one of our homes or enquiring about specific land or construction projects. many of the team have been with us since our start in 2001, with others joining us more recently, but we all share a passion for creating homes of character and integrity.
