A Tale of Love at First Sight | Grace Homes

A Tale of Love at First Sight

It’s always heart-warming to hear from happy customers; when Dr Val Harrington spoke of her ‘love affair with Grace Homes’ we were both flattered and compelled to find out what had sparked such a strong affection.

Dr Harrington lives in one of our new homes in the award winning White Lodge Farm development in Burton Latimer, having moved up from Buckingham. However, her move was far from straightforward, taking almost 2 years in total. Despite a number of setbacks, including the sale of her previous home falling through twice, Dr Harrington told us: “Once I had set my heart on living in one of your homes, I was adamant nothing would get in my way.”

Aside from being able to commute to Milton Keynes for work, Dr Harrington had no other considerations when choosing where to live. She knew that she wanted to buy a new home and it had to be well built. But as she looked at various properties, she became increasingly disappointed by both the standard of finish and the lack of an honest and personal sales approach. As a result her search took her further North.

Her quest eventually reached Burton Latimer at our development at White Lodge Farm, and after an initial viewing she knew she had found her new home. When we asked Dr Harrington how she could tell this was ‘the one’, she replied: “Several reasons, really. Firstly, the quality of the build is clearly exceptional. The homes are finished to a high spec inside, but not at the expense of the actual build-there is no point having a granite worktop if the structure of the property is poor. Secondly, I felt that I could trust them. They always returned my calls; they were supportive without being over-bearing; and they always had the time to meet up if I needed them to. Finally, of all of the new homes I had seen, no other builder came close to offering this quality of build within my price range.”

Dr Harrington was due to move on December ’14, but unfortunately her own sale fell through in the final hours. Whilst disappointed, she remained adamant that she would buy a home from Grace Homes, and with regular contact from our Sales Manager, Annie Wicklow, she finally moved into her new home at the end of September 2015.

We were keen to know how Dr Harrington felt about her home now that she has had time to unpack. After waiting so long for the move to happen was it realistic to hope her new home would live up to her expectations? She replied “I absolutely love this house. It’s a pleasure to come home to. But the biggest surprise has been the quality of the aftercare. It has been phenomenal. Even with the slightest of concerns Andy Redgwell, the Site Manager, has visited me straight away. I have been both surprised and delighted by the level of care and service.”

Thank you, Dr Harrington, for taking the time to speak to us. We are so pleased that you have finally found your perfect home, and wish you every happiness for the future.
