We are good partners
This might sound like an understatement but actually it’s rarer than you might think. At Dernford we actively like partnering. There are no egos, or control issues, just an ambition to achieve shared successes.
We don’t follow the herd
Our role is to imagine and orchestrate the future possibility of a site. This involves thinking creatively and pursuing opportunities that others lack the experience or confidence to take on.
We speculate to accumulate
Everything we do is about achieving the optimal value of a site, and often this involves short term actions and obligations to achieve long term strategic goals. This may mean for example we buy a building to access a desirable development opportunity. We are used to ownership and all of the complexity it brings… indeed, we relish it.
