A small, professional team, specialising in areas around London and the South East, CSN Homes takes on projects where it has the skills, expertise and network to move quickly, work efficiently and get the most from every opportunity.
We have a track record of development projects with GDV’s ranging from £350,000 to £6,000,000 including conversions, new builds and upgrading.
To complement our development activity we also maintain a portfolio of ground rents, residential and commercial investments.
Our model as self-funding, cash purchasers enables CSN Homes to make fast decisions based on years of knowledge and market awareness yet still conduct business with a personal touch, easily adapting our approach to the individual needs of each project.
Prior to founding CSN Alan had notched up 40 years’ experience as a leader in property and business. Most recently, he led the property acquisitions team for a development firm in Surrey and oversaw their flagship development of a 10,000 sq ft mansion in 1.5 acres on a private estate in Esher, resulting in a successful sale in excess of £6 million. Eager for new challenges, he then diversified and established the CSN Group of companies, concentrating on smaller developments in up-and-coming locations. As the managing director Alan is responsible for the strategic direction of the company.
James Hurst is a qualified Chartered Surveyor with over 20 years experience. He became a Partner at Last & Mazin, a prominent central London practice, heading their valuations department.
