Former teacher goes from classroom to show home in West Bromwich

04 April 2018

Lovell Homes has boosted its sales team with the appointment of new trainee sales executive Jane Langley at its fast-selling West Bromwich development, Harvills Grange.

Jane, from Codsall, south Staffordshire, is a former art and modern languages teacher who has left the classroom to pursue a career in new homes sales.

“I wanted a new challenge and to do something different,” explains Jane. “Some of my friends are new homes sales advisors and they suggested I might be good at it. When I left teaching last summer, I began temping as a sales advisor and although initially nervous, I really enjoyed it. In some ways it was a change, but I’m using lots of the skills I developed as a teacher. Both jobs involve a lot of talking and the ability to communicate. My background as an art teacher also means I’m very interested in the design aspect of how new homes are built and presented.

“For me, the most satisfying part of the job is talking to people, helping them and the fact that you never know who is coming through the door – that’s exciting.”

The Harvills Grange development – where the latest phase of homes is now almost completely sold out – continues to prove particularly popular with families and young professionals. A key advantage is its location with transport connections ideal for travel across the Midlands. The development has also attracted a number of homebuyers choosing to relocate from London.

Lovell field sales manager Michelle Barnsley says: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Jane to our growing sales team, she has fitted in very well at Harvills Grange which continues to be an extremely busy site. The expansion of our sales team reflects Lovell’s increasing number of exciting developments across the Midlands where we have a number of impressive new homes sites set to launch this year, including the latest phase of homes at Harvills Grange and Kings Crest, our brand-new development in Stafford. It’s great to have such an enthusiastic and capable team of sales executives working with us to welcome homebuyers and give them the care and attention that Lovell aims to provide to all its purchasers.”

Following strong sales, Lovell currently has just one three-bedroom semi-detached Ringwood house style, with parking, available at Harvills Grange, priced at £191,950 (£153,560 after a Help to Buy: Equity Loan*).  Preparations are also under way for the release of the latest phase of homes at Harvills Grange this summer when Lovell will unveil a brand-new collection of stylish two-, three- and four-bedroom properties at the popular development.
