Speedy sales at Galliers' Shrewsbury site

A presentation has been made to welcome the speedy arrival of new residents at a Shrewsbury development.

First time buyers Courtney Lewis and Matt Fletcher recently moved into Galliers Homes’ Saxon Court site in Sundorne, just four weeks after their reservation.

The couple, who were presented with flowers and a gift voucher by sales negotiator Carol Pitt, used the national Help to Buy initiative to assist with the purchase of their three-bedroom detached property.

Courtney, a PE teacher at Idsall School in Shifnal, said that she and Matt, who works at SCAT as an electrical assessor, loved the design and lay-out of the house.

She commented: “After looking at a lot of new builds we thought the houses at Saxon Court were much more spacious and excellent value for our first home and were impressed with the additional interior extras that were included.

“Galliers provided added financial incentives - £1000 towards legal costs, stamp duty fee and mortgage adviser fee which helped enormously. We wouldn't have been able to buy the house without this support.

“We both wanted to purchase a new build house under the Help to Buy scheme and the location of Saxon Court was key, taking into account the link roads for commuting.

“The team were very helpful and friendly, especially with us being first time buyers with endless questions, and on our moving day they did a thorough check of property to make sure it was ready for us.

“I was presented with a bottle of champagne and lovely personal gifts. The whole experience was managed professionally with a personal touch and the site staff were so friendly, approachable and really helpful throughout the process.”

Sales negotiator Carol Pitt said: “We are delighted to welcome Courtney and Matt as residents to this very popular development, which has been a real success story for Galliers, with all 25 properties here being completed and sold in less than a year.”
