Mum's the word for new homes sales team in Scarborough
With over 30 years’ new homes experience between them – mother and daughter team Julia and Frances Skinner are the friendly faces greeting potential buyers to The Beeches.
The sales executive duo are based at Linden Homes East Yorkshire’s popular development at West Ayton, near Scarborough.
Julia has worked in the industry for 25 years, gaining her first employment with a new homes builder in North Derbyshire after a love of interior design set her along the property career path.
She said: “I absolutely love my job and enjoy working on a busy development, watching it grow and helping customers along their journey and with what for many is the biggest single purchase in their lives.
“It gives me huge pleasure and satisfaction to know that I have assisted with this. I have worked for many different developers over the years, and from my very first role, have never looked back.”
Julia has been at The Beeches for around eight months, moving to the area to be closer to grandchildren.
She also relishes the opportunity of working closely with daughter Frances, whom she describes as ‘absolutely lovely’ and ‘is efficient and knowledgeable with a passion for property’.
Frances meanwhile has been at The Beeches with Julia for around a month, with six years new home experience to her credit. She took up the position with Linden Homes East Yorkshire after moving on from a fast-paced role within a corporate environment.
She said: “Construction and property is where my heart lies and I was actively looking for a new homes opportunity in the Scarborough area. Working with mum is great, I have grown up with her working in this sector and although I have my own style, I have learned a lot.
“We have a similar way in the way we approach things and by knowing the way each other works so well, we are confident of offering our customers a consistent and supportive experience.”
A total of 71 two, three and four-bedroom homes are being built at the development, suitable for everyone from first time buyers, professional couples, families or those who are looking to downsize or move to a more rural location.
The sales and marketing suite is open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, contact Julia or Frances on 01723 821742.
Linden Homes is now offering the new Home Reach incentive, where purchasers can buy a share of their chosen home and pay a low monthly rent on the part they don’t buy. There is the option to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive one.
With the Linden Homes partnership you can initially purchase between 50% and 75% of your chosen home and heylo will become your landlord, granting you a 125-year lease. This means you will be able to live in your home as if you've bought it outright. You can buy more of your home in the future and stop paying rent on that part. For details visit www.lindenhomes.co.uk
