    Esther Bennett:

    07940 965522

    Esther’s property journey started in Suffolk working for a small independent Estate Agent in the 1990’s.  It was also the time when she bought her own property, a small refurb project.

    Afterwards she went onto a PA and Marketing role for a Home Improvement Company where she progressed into Management co-running a sub division of the Limelight Group, a large UK Company based in Essex.

    In 2002 Esther went onto work in Commercial Lending for a large UK National Brokerage and carried out 12 years of service as a Commercial Broker prior to setting up her own Brokerage ‘Development Money’ offering Bridging & Development and Investment/Commercial Finance.

    Over this period not only had Esther been a Landlord carrying outs some Refurbishments and Flips in Suffolk, she moved into Norfolk and challenged herself to an extension within PDR’s to include a Heavy Refurbishment.   Her most recent property challenge (Commercial to Residential) was a major 10,000 sq ft Development which was reduced to 7,000 sq ft to include a Conversion and New Build of 6 units in Norfolk.  Successfully some units have been sold and some retained and let to private/corporate tenants that is managed in-house.

    This build experience that she obtained during the term of her build helps assist other borrowers that enquire about finance at Development Money.

    Esther has 2 children that keep her extremely busy and in her spare time she likes interior design/art and loves to cook and entertain her friends.  When out of the UK she loves to sail her Hobiecat in warmer climates and explore new Islands.
