Double reward for happy Bromford buyers

FIRST-TIME buyer Graham was so pleased with his new Bromford home that he encouraged a friend to take a look at our Castle View development just outside Stafford.

She was equally impressed − and decided to buy a shared ownership Bromford home in the neighbouring street at Doxey.

As a result, Graham picked up a £250 Recommend A Friend incentive − and then doubled his reward to £500 by encouraging a second friend to buy his first home at another Bromford development, Rugeley's Bracken Gardens.

"Recommend A Friend is a great way of rewarding customers like us who love our new Bromford homes and are happy to endorse them to family or friends," says Graham, who bought the two-bed Castle View house with partner Jamie.

"I was happy to recommend Bromford and pleased that, like us, our friends have both successfully bought their own first houses. Both thought buying might be out of their reach and were surprised how easy it was to get on the first rung of the ladder thanks to Bromford's really affordable shared ownership scheme."

Like many first-time buyers, Graham and Jamie were keen to find an affordable and more secure alternative to renting a home from private landlords.

"We were looking to buy our first house as we had three dogs − Pumpkin, Harry and Maisy − wanted to start a family and didn't want to waste any more money renting property! Having pets made it hard to find suitable rented property," explains Graham.

"We went to Bromford as we were impressed by shared ownership and the various incentives they offer such as deposit matching at selected developments. We looked at a few new houses but when we came to Castle View (pictured below) we instantly fell in love with the high standards and quality finish."

Graham and Jamie say they're equally impressed by the Bromford commitment to first-rate customer service from the opening conversation with a sales consultant to the big day when a buyer collects their front door keys... and beyond.

"We were very happy with the quality of service from the first time we met our sales adviser. It was made so simple for us to buy the house... Bromford arranged the mortgage adviser and put is in touch with solicitors and so on," says Graham.

"I think that for anyone looking to buy their first house and who needs a helping hand, then I would always recommend Bromford. Luckily, we've not needed Bromford too much since we've moved in but I am sure if we did then I know they would be happy to help.

"Getting onto the property ladder with a home we can call our own has given us the stability we craved to start building a family. We have lovely neighbours on a lovely estate. Our house is of a high quality and we love it!"

Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley says: "It's great to hear such resounding praise for Bromford build quality and customer service and for shared ownership. We're delighted to see the property dream come true for buyers like Graham and Jamie − and to reward them with useful shopping vouchers when they recommend us to other first-time buyers.

"Shared ownership is making the difference for hundreds of first-time buyers across central England. We've just highlighted a really successful month of sales during October and stories like this encourage us to believe that buyers will keep saying a big YES to shared ownership now and into the New Year."
