Tilia Homes go extra mile to help happy buyers at Roundhouse Gate in Cringleford

When Becky Tse and Ricky Rai decided to relocate their family from Hong Kong to England, they did what every person does: research, research research.

After looking into several cities, they settled on moving Norwich, a decision based on the fantastic environment, education facilities, and being ranked as one of the safest cities in England. When the time came to buy after renting, they looked around number of schemes around the city before visiting Hannah Bishop at Tilia Homes’ Roundhouse Gate development, in Cringleford.

Becky said: ‘It was wonderful to meet Hannah. She really spent the time to understand the concerns and worries we had about buying our first home in a new country. Spending this time with Hannah made the difference for us and made our decision to choose Tilia homes over others that much easier. Other sales teams didn’t seem to offer the same care and attention which we received from the Tilia team.”

First, Hannah helped them understand what it was the family needed from their new home. They decided on The Oakford, a four-bedroom detached property with a particularly good-sized garden. As Ricky works from home, the separate study was ideal for them.

Both Becky and Ricky were delighted with how quickly the deal came together, reserving the property at the start of September, they exchanged at the start of October. This was in no small part down to the dedicated team at Tilia Homes, including their inhouse legal and finance team who were able to cut through the jargon for the couple, to make the purchase simple and smooth.

They found competitive mortgages offers and fully explained the process of purchasing their new home – nothing was too much trouble.

Ricky and Becky moved in over Christmas, and they have spent the new year making their new house a home.

“Cringleford has everything to offer us,” Becky explained. “As an accountant working for a property firm in the city centre, the ability to get in and out of Norwich so easily has been an undoubted asset. I have friends dotted throughout the UK and the ability to get on the A11 has also been a huge benefit, as it is important that they stay connected with the Hong Kong community.”

While the cold weather has come as a little bit of a shock, the country walks available close by around the UEA grounds have come as a pleasant distraction from the frost.

“We really couldn’t be happier with our purchase from Tilia Homes, and we look forward to many happy years here!”

Marc from Bidwells who met the buyers said. I know Ricky and Becky will be very happy here in Cringleford. It has everything to offer a young family. And if the perfect place to call home here in the UK.

The sales office is open Thursday to Monday 10am to 5pm. Tailored incentive packages are available ask our sales team for further information on 01603 531616.
