MEET the team behind Northwich's new housing development, Winnington Place.

Homes advisors Marie Browning and Kelly Boyd, plus site manager Phil Jump and his team, have been kept busy since the launch of the Anwyl Homes collection near Northwich, with 22 properties being sold so far.

"The development is already coming together with the show homes," said Marie,

"It looks impressive because we feature lots of different elevations, it’s not uniform.

"As we say, they are thoughtful homes because so much thought and care has gone into every aspect of creating them."

And Marie certainly knows what she’s talking about – she’s been selling homes for 20 years, the last three with Anwyl.

Mum-of-one Marie, loves her job and having an impact on one of the most important periods in many people’s lives.

"There’s a real sense of achievement because you are helping people make the biggest purchase of their lives and being part of that journey is so nice," she said.

"There’s no better feeling than on completion when you hand over the keys and they are absolutely thrilled – and that feeling never fades.

"I live locally only 15 minutes’ drive from Winnington Place, and that helps I think because I know the area well.

"There’s a nice village feel and a lovely community; with all the amenities you need close by.

"Northwich is just down the road and there’s good access to motorways.

"It’s interesting that most of our customers are local because once people live here or move here, they tend to stay – and, for any area, that says it all!"

Meanwhile, Kelly Boyd, from Prescot, Knowsley, works alongside Marie and has been with Anwyl for four years.

Phil Jump, 32, has returned to his site manager role at the development after becoming a dad – his wife Amy gave birth to their daughter Lilia earlier this year– and understands more than ever the importance of family life and a good home in which to live it.
