what our clients say

  • We have no hesitation recommending Centaur Land

    We’ve been working with Centaur on one of our sites for the past 2 ½ years. Mark and Guy have been great to deal with and we know from past experiences they put far more personal input into the business than their competitors.

  • Extremely knowledgeable

    Centaur Land has a highly experienced team who are extremely knowledgeable and are a pleasure to work with. We have now worked together for many years to effectively assess opportunities, unlock sites and ultimately deliver planning permissions.

  • Friendly and professional in their approach

    We have worked with Centaur Homes for over 10 years, and they have consistently been able to unlock the potential of development sites where others have failed to do so. Whether it be on land acquisition or plot sales we have always found the team to be friendly and professional in their approach and a pleasure to work with.
