About DeTrafford

One of the most difficult parts of property investment is determining where to purchase property. DeTrafford are a property development and investment company that are trying to make this part a little easier for investors by choosing carefully selected construction sites, that meet a need of local communities.

Who are DeTrafford and what do they do?

DeTrafford are property developers that operate in the United Kingdom, with a focus on building properties that will help bring something to the local community.

The aim of DeTrafford is to create properties that are not just aesthetically pleasing and good for buy-to-let investors, but to ensure the properties work well within the community through practical design and sustainable building techniques.

Unlike other developers that deal primarily with residential properties, DeTrafford jumps into any property project that benefits the community through ‘dynamic’ and ‘diverse’ city spaces.

What types of projects do DeTrafford complete?

No two of DeTrafford’s projects are the same. Each location and community has a different personality and need, so the company aim to develop around these local requirements.

DeTrafford works hard to be open-minded and creative in their projects, and regardless of the area, one common thread is the aim for sustainability and enhancement of a buildings’ surroundings. All of their projects are designed to have a minimal environmental footprint in terms of construction and use.

Ultimately, DeTrafford’s connection with the surrounding community leads to successful property developments for each area and investors who come onboard.

History of DeTrafford

DeTrafford made their name constructing places that put the occupant’s needs and desires first, while still mixing in interesting and unique aesthetics.

Founded by Gary Jackson, the spark for property creation began with a single refurbishment almost 35 years ago. Striving as a young entrepreneur, he did all sorts of odd jobs to gather enough money to fund his dream career. With every year that passed and every project that was completed, Gary’s individual style matured, becoming what we know it to be today.
