Tells us about your career experience and what your role brings to the town
I’ve always worked in marketing and sales, including housebuilding, but Chapelton is very different from any other place that I’ve been based previously. Here, it’s not just about the property but about the whole lifestyle that a move to the town can offer. It’s my job to let house hunters know about this great lifestyle and help new residents settle into it.
What questions are you frequently asked by house hunters?
Many of our customers are looking for a low maintenance new home but do not want to compromise on the traditional layout or the character that older properties can provide. We offer the best of both worlds, with high ceilings, spacious rooms, and traditional timber windows and copper piped plumbing throughout; seamlessly integrated alongside modern building techniques, high quality fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms, and warranty cover to provide peace of mind.
It’s great to be able to show them all of this in our show homes, where they’re able to feel the quality of the specification for themselves. The little things they might think don’t matter when buying a house often end up being their favourite features, such as our beautiful staircases that are handcrafted in our workshop in Aboyne.
What is it about the Chapelton lifestyle that attracts customers?
Chapelton is unique from other developments. There’s plenty of space, the houses aren’t tightly packed and there’s a great sense of community. This along with the picturesque surrounding countryside and great local amenities is really attractive to our customers. They love the idea of being part of something new and exciting, something that they’re not going to find anywhere else close by.
What do you like most about your job?
Coming from a long line of school report cards where I was consistently told I talked too much, it will be no surprise to anyone that I just love meeting and talking to people.
Customers are often interested in the building methods we use and are very receptive to hearing about what influences inspire us to build the way we do and the intricacies of what makes our homes so different to any other new build out there.
Buying a home is such a personal experience for customers and I love to hear interesting stories about people’s lives, or just funny anecdotes that stick with me for years to come. I’m so very lucky to have a job I thoroughly enjoy.
How do you spend your time outside of work?
I have two dogs at home and they take up most of my spare time. They’re a handful but I wouldn’t change them for the world. We love going on long walks along the beach or taking part in community meet ups.
