We work as professional partners and advisors to our development clients, helping them to capitalise on their property development opportunities in and around York.

We deal with all residential property development opportunities, from small sites in rural areas to City Centre apartment buildings. Why choose Lancaster Samms as your development partner?

Because we know the market in York inside out

We know exactly why different properties in different parts of town hold a special appeal – and we know the buyers that they appeal to. That’s why we’re able to find our developer clients the right buyers, fast.

We are all career property professionals, committed to the sustainable long-term growth of the York property market, and of our business.

The quality and reach of our marketing matches any national agent. The printed and digital details we produce are beautifully written, designed and produced, and every property we sell is visible locally, nationally and globally on all the important property portals.
