Property development with a personal touch

Our mission

We want to turn every customer’s vision of their ideal home into a reality. That means giving them control and guidance throughout every stage of the design and build process – from purpose-built extensions and balconies to personalised kitchens and bathrooms, we strive to make it possible.

Our approach

For us, achieving that mission starts with developing close personal relationships to understand how each client wants their home to look and feel. From start to finish, they’ll deal with one account manager, who will be on hand to provide guidance and updates whenever they need them.

Along the way, we’re committed to not only maintaining standards, but surpassing them. We make sure every fixture, fitting or frill we install is of the highest quality, while every supplier we work with is carefully selected for their values, standards and ways of working.

It’s a mindset that has resulted in Risby Homes winning a number of industry awards down the years, and will likely bring many more in the future.    

All of our homes are Consumer Code For Home Builders compliant, you can find out more about what this means here.

Our heritage

Risby Homes was established in 1993 by Mark Barrett. After years of studying and working in construction, Mark decided to set up his own company focused on high quality, tailored residential property development.

Fast forward to today, and Risby Homes is very much a family affair. Mark’s son Olly and daughter Amy are both on the team, and plan to carry on the Risby legacy long into the future.
