And the award goes to... Lorraine!

Redrows Lorraine Moores is celebrating after being named the Lancashire division’s sales consultant of the year by the housebuilder.

The award was made at Redrow’s national sales conference, where sales consultants from each division were recognised for their hard work, sales successes and customer service.

Visitors to Birch Grange, in Rochdale, where Lorraine is based, will not only have the chance to look around Redrow’s Heritage Collection houses, but will also be able to benefit from Lorraine’s well-honed customer service skills; making sure that each customer purchases the home most suited to their circumstances and with the best financial help available.

Lorraine said: “I was delighted to be nominated for the award and was really shocked when my name was announced. There are not many occasions when I am stuck for words but this was one of them!

“Working for Redrow is like working for one big family. My bosses are so supportive and listen to your ideas and respect your opinion.”

Lorraine, 47, who is married with two grown up children, lives in Marple, Stockport. She has worked for various housebuilders over 17 years but joined Redrow four years ago to work on a regeneration project in Moston, Greater Manchester. Having achieved great success there, where she sold and legally completed 100 homes over three separate developments, she moved to Birch Grange where she has also been very successful.

"After four years with Redrow I am still enjoying it and look forward to many more years with the company. I love the product, it’s the best on the market, so it’s a joy to sell,” she added.

The Birch Grange homes Lorraine loves selling so much boast a high specification as standard, including kitchens that are well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, plus bathrooms and en-suites with quality fixtures and fittings.

The last phase at the development has just been released and homebuyers are being urged to visit the site soon to avoid missing out on the last few homes available.

The remaining three and four-bedroom detached homes enjoy views over neighbouring fields and the Pennines beyond. Nearby, Hollingworth Lake Activity Centre offers a range of water sports and there’s also the chance to fish on the lake or at Watergrove Reservoir.
