Developer searches for longest-standing homeowner

Redrow has today launched a nationwide quest to find the longest standing owner of one of its homes.

As it celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2024, the housebuilder is on the hunt for original and long-term residents to share their experiences and unique stories. 

Redrow’s longest standing customer(s) will also win a prize of £500 as a thank you for telling their story.


Founded in 1974, Redrow was created by Steve Morgan with just £5,000, loaned to him by his father. 

Five years later, the company expanded from civil engineering into main contract building, seeing Redrow embark on its first housing development in Denbigh, North Wales. 

After that, the company expanded into the homes sector.

Over the years, Redrow said it has built more than 120,000 homes, housing the equivalent population of a major city like Nottingham, and now has 12 regional divisions across England and Wales.

Matt Grayson, group customer and marketing director for Redrow, said: “As we enter this 2024 year, commemorating our 50th anniversary, we can’t wait to mark this special milestone with all the people who make Redrow what it is.

“If you’ve been a Redrow homeowner since your very first home purchase or recently upsized into a new energy efficient home with us, we hope you will join us in the celebrations.

“As part of our 50th anniversary, we want to hear from you, whether that’s an interesting homebuying tale or a story of your life in one of our homes. And if you think you may be the Redrow homeowner who has lived with us the longest, we encourage you to get in touch.”
