LYNDA HONES HER LISTENING SKILLS TO SELL NEW HOMES
Lynda took the title for Kent-based Redrow Homes (South East), after clocking up an impressive sales rate at the popular Ryarsh Park development in Ryarsh.
Lynda lives in nearby West Malling and is able to use her local knowledge, along with her personal and professional experience to assist customers.
She attributes her success to ‘listening to what customers want’ to help match them with the perfect property.
“It’s important to know what people are looking for and to be able to explain the benefits of the location, the layout of the property and the quality of build,” explains Lynda, 56, who has lived in a new build home herself in the past.
“I’ve worked in the industry for 18 years and have been with Redrow for 12 years on and off. I’d left because they didn’t have many sites in Kent but was keen to come back because I love the product and I’d always been happy working for Redrow.”
Almost 90% of the homes at Ryarsh Park have now been sold and more than half of them are now occupied.
“At Ryarsh Park I’ve maintained a good sales rate and the majority of homes were sold in just over a year when it had predicted it would take longer as some of the properties are around a £1 million,” Lynda adds.
“The quality of build and the specification have certainly played a part in the success. I think people’s attitudes towards new build homes have changed – they used to be considered as inferior to older properties, but because Redrow is a traditional housebuilder the homes are more attractive to purchasers. The Heritage Collection is the best product on the market. I don’t think anything else compares.”
Despite the limited availability, there’s still plenty of choice at Ryarsh Park, including three, four and five-bedroom homes priced from £369,995.
For the latest availability visit the development, open daily from 10am to 5.30pm. Alternatively, call 01732386412 or see www.redrow.co.uk/ryarsh.
