The grand opening of Gleeson’s latest development, Windermere Green just off Portobello Road in Birtley, was welcomed with an enthusiastic response from local buyers who camped outside the sales office the night before the first homes were released for sale.
Buyers started queuing from midnight to be among the first to reserve one of the 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes which were priced from £116,995. On opening the Sales Office, Gleeson’s Sales Manager, Lindsey Oliver, was met by a queue of over 40 people. Thankfully Gleeson anticipated queues and had hired an all-expenses paid burger van to feed those waiting.
Due to the incredibly high demand for the development Gleeson took the decision to make the first homes only available to those buyers who had pre-registered as VIPs, which led to all six homes being purchased within hours of the sales office opening at 10am.
Following the event, Lindsey said “This development proved popular with local buyers from the outset. We started getting enquiries as soon as we received planning permission and we had a long list of people eagerly anticipating the launch. Well done to buyers who braved the night to secure their homes! Gleeson hiring the burger van was an added bonus for our patient queuing home buyers. We are now inviting buyers to register their interest in the next release of new homes to avoid missing out.”
