We spoke to Nadia about their journey with Gleeson!

“After hearing from a friend who bought a Gleeson home in Leeds a few years back, we knew we would be in good hands buying our first home together,(this is Danilo’s second home, but my first!). We chose the 3-bedroom Kilkenny, as we have always wanted a detached home, and it is a great family home for us to raise our little boy, Leonardo. We especially love the living room layout, which features the exposed stairs, as well as our generously-sized kitchen!”

“The process of buying our home was made incredibly easy by our helpful Sales Executive, Sharon, who was always on hand to discuss any queries we had. Sharon went through the development map and helped us choose the exact plot we wanted. She always wanted to ensure we were happy with everything and, thanks to her, we are! I would definitely recommend anybody considering a Gleeson home to visit your local sales centre, take a look around as many show homes as possible and ask lots of questions.”

“We are so happy knowing that we now own our own home and are on the property ladder; no more wasting our money on rent and no more dealing with agencies or landlords. It really is the best feeling ever!”
