Harrison and Kim's story

harrison and kim

Harrison and Kim’s rent was expensive, and the home wasn’t suited to their needs, with it lacking in outdoor space. After hearing about their local Gleeson development from a friend, the couple were eager to view the show homes. After visiting the development Harrison and Kim knew that the development was for them. They felt strongly about having a well-built, energy efficient home, plus they were won over by the price, and were excited that despite owning their own home, they would be saving £185 per month on their mortgage. 

Finding the process of buying their home much easier than they expected, Harrison and Kim felt that they could ask any question they wanted without judgement due to Gleeson’s Sales Executives specialising in selling to first-time buyers.

On owning their own home Kim said: “All we ever wanted is a safe and beautiful home for our daughter, which we now have thanks to Gleeson. She can play outside in our large, secure garden and we have the pleasure of watching her grow in a beautiful happy home! By switching from renting to buying, we have more money each month to spend on family holidays and outings and having a blank canvas, truly allows us to decorate our interior to our own taste.”
