The brand new Sales Consultant at Westleigh’s freshly-launched Forest Green development in Huncote says she is loving the opportunity to guide purchasers through the homebuying process.
Sonia Bunn was recently appointed to her role at the development of two, three and four-bedroom homes, which was unveiled to would-be buyers at the launch of the Sales and Marketing Suite and beautiful Buttermere showhome.
Born in Liverpool but having lived in Leicestershire for the majority of her life, Sonia worked previously as a Sales Consultant for another housing developer in the North Midlands.
“I felt as though I wanted a change and started to look into other housebuilders in the region,” she explains.
“I had interviews lined up with a few major developers but I knew that the job with Westleigh was the one I wanted. The company was very approachable and I got a really good feeling about it.
“I spent the first few days working at the Head Office and I found everyone to be so friendly and I was made to feel really welcome.
“I didn’t feel out of place once and I saw quickly that they have your needs in mind all the time, which I’ve not found to be the case with other employers in the industry.
“What’s more, Westleigh offers a fantastic package and the standard of their product is exceptional and is delivered to a high specification.”
Sonia asserts that her new position with Westleigh has afforded her a perfect balance between her life at home and at work.
“I’ve found the job works well around being able to spend time with my family,” she continues.
“Most of my children have grown up and flown the nest, apart from one of my sons, who has just finished his A-levels, and my nine-year daughter.
“I love the face-to-face time I have with people who come to visit the development, but I also feel as though I have enough time to be there for my children.”
On a day-to-day basis, Sonia’s responsibilities include maintaining the presentation of both the Marketing Suite and the showhome, responding to enquiries from potential purchasers, welcoming visitors to the development and dealing with financial advisors.
Her favourite part of the job is leading buyers through the process, from the moment they walk through the doors of the Marketing Suite to the point of getting the keys to their dream home.
Sonia adds: “Seeing how happy people are when they’ve made that step to reserve a property is just the best thing. It’s probably the biggest purchase they will make in their life and to be involved in that moment is really special.
“I’m also enjoying the attractive, rural setting of the development. I’m meeting local villagers all the time, who are coming in, saying hello, and telling me all these stories about Huncote, which is good because I get to learn even more about the village.
“I’m hoping that Westleigh will be my forever job and I will stay with the business until retirement.”
Lisa Morris, New Homes Manager for Westleigh, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed Sonia to the team at Forest Green
“She has brought her experience, as well as her passion for and commitment to helping purchasers through the homebuying experience to the role and I have every confidence that she will continue to thrive with us.”
There is currently a fantastic range of two and three-bedroom homes available to reserve at Forest Green, with prices starting from £209,950.
