We buy land across all corners of the Island working from our modern offices in Newport on the St Cross Business Park. We work with owners right from the very early stages of a sale, bringing in our specialist planning and building partners. That way we make sure we always offer a fair market price based on the size of the opportunity. Our key relationships can unlock the potential of your plot.
Our advisory and land appraisal service is free to all potential sellers – we simply want to buy your land, garden plot, old buildings or commercial premises.
Alan started his property career way back in 1974 when an average house cost just £10,148. In his 40+ years in the business, he has seen annual house price inflation as high as +31% and as low as -10%, which has been the ultimate training experience in realism. Alan was previously MD of a 50 branch estate agency chain, was a Director at Rightmove for 9 years and has personally started eight successful property businesses down the years.
Alan met his business partner Keith while they were both working for a large independent estate agency group in 2002. They hit it off from the beginning and started Trigg & Co on the island in 2013 before moving into land acquisition via IOW Developments.
Keith’s first day in estate agency was when Margaret Thatcher was elected prime minister some 40+ years ago and he hasn’t looked back. He rapidly rose through the profession, becoming a Regional Director at Countrywide plc in the 1990’s, running companies across the south of England.
Keith moved to the Isle of Wight 20 years ago as MD of Watson Bull & Porter and subsequently became MD of Pittis in 2002. After a spell running his own property development company Keith fulfilled his ambition to run his own estate agency by starting Trigg & Co with Alan in 2013 before the two partners expanded into land acquisition via IOW Developments. Keith has a simple business philosophy “exceptional customer service, delivering results and bringing fresh ideas to the Island property market.
Many people don’t realise the value of development land and that their property may actually be more valuable offered for development purposes, as opposed to residential resale. That’s where we come in. We help people realise the opportunities available within a private land sale.
Obviously, not every property or parcel of land may be suitable, which is why it is important to seek professional advice and an expert appraisal. Our specialist team will be able to offer both of these, guiding you through the process; explaining every step in detail and assisting you make an informed choice on the land options available to you.
