Homes chief Ann Gillespie likes Kier Homes' Blue Quarter development she bought a home
A sales adviser at a Maidstone housing development became so
fond of her patch that she snapped up one of the homes herself.
During a seven-month stint at Kier Homes’ Blue Quarter
development in Maidstone, Ann Gillespie enjoyed spending her days
showing prospective buyers around the collection of 281 apartments,
overlooking the River Medway.
But as the apartments sold, one-by-one, she found herself
wishing she could stay at the Hart Street development when it was
time to go home. Finally, she bought up one of the two-bedroom
flats for herself.
Ann, who has now moved in, said: “Working for Kier Homes at Blue
Quarter, I knew exactly what the development offered to potential
purchasers, such as the quality of the apartments, the landscaped
setting overlooking the river, and its location within walking
distance to the centre of Maidstone.
“I was selling apartments to the purchasers, but I began to
realise that this was the lifestyle for me as well!
“I moved from busy Orpington town centre to this ideal setting
and I know that it was absolutely the right move – investing in
what I believe in. I love it here!”
Just 24 two-bedroom apartments are still for sale, from
£159,995, so Ann is making the most of her present journey to work
– a two-minute walk from her new flat to the sales suite.
