Last year was a big one for Prime Purchase — a ‘top three’ year out of the firm’s fourteen- year history — and for Wells personally, who has just wrapped up his first year as the firm’s managing director.
The new role has seen the Hampshire andBerkshire specialist busy growing the firm’s ranks — including the Cotswolds team (now the largest in the country) — and advising on £110 million-plus of prime purchases for HNWs. ‘You’ve got to have great integrity, take the long-term view— and really know
