Meeting her first prospective buyers as Sales Adviser at Lovell Homes’ new Telford development, The Oaklands, has confirmed a choice of career for Geri Cox.
With excellent people skills, Geri, age 62, from Stourbridge, has been employed in sales all her working life and is committed to helping customers make the right purchase. Having started out at Lovell Homes providing temporary cover last year Geri’s swift progress has been rewarded with her new post at The Oaklands.
Mother to four grown up children, Geri began a career in retail on leaving school. She moved into work as a sales representative and then on to becoming a passenger service agent for a major airline at Birmingham Airport. Her interest in new home sales was sparked through a colleague there and she applied to an agency to train for part-time cover, which ultimately led her to Lovell Homes.
“I wanted to work for Lovell because while I was doing cover for various developers I soon realised that the support I gained from management and colleagues here was much better than other house companies. I also wanted something to focus on in my personal life at the time and this was exactly what I needed.
“I love my job because I enjoy meeting new people and building up relationships with my buyers. It’s the best feeling in the world when you hand over the keys on completion day and see how happy your purchaser is.
“If I had taken on this role when I was much younger I would say my ambition would be to progress as near to the top as possible, but now I aim to be the best at whatever I do.”
Buyers can take advantage of beautifully designed two and three-bedroom new homes at The Oaklands, in a convenient location with great transport links.
Built-in style, unrivalled quality and exceptional value are hallmarks that set a Lovell home apart. Every property offers superior specification and workmanship with close attention to detail. Homes benefit from a range of purchase options available, including no Stamp Duty to pay on the first £125,000, together with the Government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme.
