New start for Cranbrook couple

17 December 2012

An Exeter couple are celebrating a new chapter in their lives by moving to Cranbrook.

Julie and Simon James decided to move to the new town following Julie’s successful battle with breast cancer over the past 12 months.  They also required a home large enough to care for Julie’s father, which would bring the family closer together.  
The move was made possible by part exchanging their existing property to a four bedroom detached home at Persimmon Homes Galileo.
“We really liked the idea of moving to a brand new community to give ourselves a fresh start,” said Simon. “Having got through all of Julie’s treatment together, Persimmon Homes Galileo presented us with the perfect home to start that new beginning.
“Having looked into Persimmon’s Part Exchange scheme we quickly realised it was the easiest way to move.  The staff at Galileo were superb and made us feel at ease throughout the whole process.  We were equally impressed with the size of our new home, which provides us with more than enough space for the three of us.”
Nina Hester, sales and marketing director of Persimmon Homes South West, said; “We have a range of incentives at Galileo to help people move.  Part Exchange is one of our most popular schemes and I’m delighted to hear how it has assisted Simon and Julie.
“The scheme helps those with a property to sell and we aim to make the whole process totally stress-free.  NewBuy is also available at Galileo, which enable buyers to purchase a brand new home with only a five per cent deposit.
“We’re proud to have established the community early on at Cranbrook with a new primary school and neighbourhood centre already open.  The development offers excellent transport links and we are finding more and more people are coming to talk to us as the community starts to take shape.”
