Fate, friendship, risk-taking and self-belief – a story of how a chance meeting led to the creation of a business that’s now celebrating its tenth year
Much like the famous lyrics sung by 80’s pop band, Human League: “I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met you”, except Justin wasn’t working in a cocktail bar, he was running a successful architectural practice when he had a chance encounter with John.
Just over ten years ago, John – who was in-between jobs at the time due to the recession – worked his charm and secured a meeting with Justin to try and sell him kitchen worktops. The pair immediately clicked and it was only a matter of minutes before they found themselves in a deep discussion over their shared passion – land. It was quickly established that Justin had a parcel of land he was looking to sell for a client and, as luck would have it, John had someone in mind who he thought would be very interested.
