Here’s No Place Like Home For Linden Homes’ New-look Scarborough Sales Team
12 Apr 2022

Linden Homes has strengthened its sales presence in North Yorkshire with a new-look team boasting a wealth of local and market knowledge.

The all-female team ?" headed up by sales manager Frances Skinner ?" enjoys strong connections to the coastal town of Scarborough, a place they each call home.

Three sought-after developments currently make up Linden Homes’ Scarborough region, with a selection of first-time buyer and family homes available at Tara Fields, Cayton Reach and Northfield Meadows.

Frances said: “As a company, we have looked at and embraced new ways of working with customers during and since the pandemic, building that very important rapport and maintaining the desire to help them realise their dreams.

“Being local to the area and understanding what people are looking for in a development, in a home and from the location really does help.

“My sales team are all from Scarborough, and collectively we can relate to customer aspirations of moving to the coast for a work/life balance, being close to great schools, enjoying a great lifestyle ?" and even easy access to surfing lessons on the doorstep. It really is the best life!”

Meet the sales team:

  • Anne Richardson has almost two decades of experience in the textile and soft furnishings industry as well as estate agency and financial services. She said: “It has always been an ambition of mine to be able to help customers choose their first, next or forever home in a new build environment and working with local people is at the top of my agenda. I live locally with my grown-up family, where together we enjoy the Seamer and Ayton way of life. It's such a beautiful unspoilt area to live.”
  • Having lived intermittently in Scarborough for 15 years, Laura McCaffery says she always finds her way back to be near the sea: it’s a beautiful place and I’m so glad I can now help either local people or people relocating find their dream home at the Tara Fields development.”
  • Listening to what customers want and delivering a professional, caring and friendly service is key for Christine Erekat, who has financial sector and sales experience. She said: “As I have always been 100 per cent customer focused, I look forward to sharing my skills and knowledge base in finding everyone their perfect home.”
  • People-person Keeley Clarkson was born in Scarborough, living in the town until the age of 18. She said: “Moving away allowed me to see and appreciate just how lucky we are to call Scarborough our home. After living away and traveling to various countries for six years, I moved back to Scarborough and love the potential that comes from such a beautiful seaside down. I’ve been all around the world, but nothing compares to my hometown.”
