Great Customer Service And Making It Easy To Move Encouraged East Sussex Couple To Buy
23 Aug 2019

Little did Gary (49) and Annemarie Brook (47) know that when they stopped at Linden Homes’ Millwood Park development out of curiosity, they would become the proud owners of a beautiful new four bedroom detached home for them and their two older children, thanks to Help to Buy* and Assisted Move‡.

The couple were passing the Linden Homes’ development in Hailsham and after an initial discussion Mrs Brook had with the sales team, both returned to explore the development and fell in love with The Bodiam, one of the four-bedroom detached properties.

Gary, a driving instructor said: “We weren’t even looking or thinking of moving but when my wife and I drove past, we thought we’d stop and have a look on the off chance. Annemarie popped into the sales office and spoke to Greg. He was so helpful and explained everything clearly to us, especially about how Help to Buy and Assisted Move worked. When we saw The Bodiam we didn’t need any more convincing. We were going to wait another five or so years before we thought about down-sizing however with the great customer service we decided to take the plunge and go for it now.”

The Brooks who moved from a bigger, older house in Eastbourne love their brand new four-bedroom home in Hailsham. Being a new build, the Brooks will also benefit from the 10 year Buildmark warranty and they will save on running costs as new homes boost being six times more energy efficient than older homes with the very latest insulation and heating systems, another consideration for Gary and Annemarie.

Annemarie Brook, who runs her own cleaning business, added “I don’t think we spent more than an hour deciding but Linden Homes were so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Communicating with Greg was easy and they just took care of everything and were very professional. Now we have fantastic space, everything in the house is new and energy efficient, we have a garage and a lovely big garden. Two of my hobbies are gardening and cooking so I’m going to love making the most of the garden and beautiful brand-new kitchen.”

As the Brooks discovered, Help to Buy* is not just for first time buyers. It’s open to all buyers who wish to buy a home up to the value of £600,000 and a great way to unlock the funds needed to purchase your first of next home. Combined with using Assisted Move, whereby Linden Homes helped Gary and Annemarie sell their existing home, it meant that the couple were able to make that future move quite a bit sooner.

The couple have enjoyed settling into their new home: “We’re extremely lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country. We’ve had a great experience with Linden Homes, and we can now look forward to enjoying life at Millwood Park.”

Ginny James, Sales and Marketing Director at Linden Homes South East, said: “Millwood Park is a wonderful location. It’s very hard not to fall in love with the development. It’s so peaceful and surrounded by such beautiful countryside yet is close to all the amenities that Hailsham has to offer. Congratulations to the Brooks Family and we wish them many happy years here.”
