More than 20 years’ experience and a wealth of local knowledge have helped Pat O’Connor clock an impressive sales rate, earning her an award from her employer in the process.
Pat, who works at Chestnut Walk in Bilston, has been named Redrow Sales Consultant of the Year in the Midlands.
“I was pleasantly surprised when it was announced that I’d won but I love working for Redrow,” Pat says.
“Chestnut Walk is a very busy site but I aim to give the best customer service possible and I’m proud that my efforts have been recognised with the award.
Over the course of the last 12 months Pat has sold an average of three or four homes a month.
Experience and local knowledge have been key to her success.
“I’ve worked in the housing industry for more than 20 years and so I can put customers at ease and guide them through the buying process,” Pat adds.
“Bilston people buy homes in Bilston so it helps that I know the area as I only live about 10 minutes from the development.’
The vast majority of recent purchasers have been first time buyers who’ve used Help to Buy to make homeownership easier to afford.
“Help to Buy has made a real difference as it’s much more achievable to raise a deposit of around £6,000 than it would be to save the £25,000 buyers might need on the open market,” Pat explains.
The homes currently available at Chestnut Walk include a choice of two and three-bedroom designs from the sought-after Heritage Collection.
Prices start from as little as £124,995 for a two-bedroom Evesham, which is below the stamp duty threshold for additional savings. And, thanks to Help to Buy, the initial price can be reduced to just £99,996 including a deposit of £6,250. The remaining 20% share is covered by an equity loan, which is interest free for five years.
