I joined Persimmon Homes in 2005 and have successfully handed over the keys to more than 400 happy customers during my time with the business.
I’m currently based at the Charles Church Alderton Grange development and have always worked in sales, beginning in the automotive industry before moving to the housing sector.
I’m passionate about sales and thrive upon customer interaction. I really enjoy matching customers to their ideal home. For me, it is always important, and feels natural, to keep my clients up to date with their build.
I tend to take the customer to the site, so they can see the journey their house goes through, from ground through to completion. They can take photographs and envisage the home that will stand there.
I believe it’s vital to listen and keep the customer informed to ensure their new home purchase is a smooth and enjoyable process. I feel this is the least I can do. After all, buying a house is the biggest investment most of us will make.
Emma Johnson – Field Sales Manager – Yorkshire and Humberside
I have recently been promoted into the role of Field Sales Manager for Persimmon Homes Yorkshire after spending two years as a Sales Advisor.
After leaving a job in the chemical industry to complete a degree in Marine Biology, I was unsure of my future but, as my parents both worked for Persimmon Homes I had already gained a keen interest and understanding of the industry. Family discussions would often be about house building and buying so I developed a clear understanding of what the job entailed.
It’s a family affair as my partner also works in sales for the Persimmon Homes’ Teesside region and this seems to have stimulated my competitive side too!
The diversity of the role is what I love as no two days are ever the same and all customers’ needs are different. My role oversees the developments’ performance and includes devising bespoke sales and marketing strategies for each site as well as supporting and training the Sales Advisors to ensure a thorough and informative service is delivered to customers.
