Experienced Sales Executive joins Elan in Macclesfield

WITH 28 years’ experience of selling new homes, Mel Sherratt is right at home as the new Elan Homes sales executive for the Hope Park Mews development in Macclesfield.

The scheme has just launched ‘off plan’ and Mel is perfectly placed to help match purchasers with their ideal property.

“I absolutely love meeting people and taking them right through the buying process from reservation to completing the purchase of their new home and the joy they feel. It’s lovely to be part of,” Mel, 51, says.

“I don’t think there’s much I haven’t experienced in the industry. I’m knowledgeable and approachable and with that combination I hope that people feel a level of comfort that I can use my experience to support them when they are going through the buying process.”

Mel, originally from North Wales, bought her first property, a studio apartment in the early 1990s. She now lives in Chester.

“I’ve been watching Elan as a competitor for the last couple of years and have been massively impressed by their properties and the way they do things and wanted to join the company,” Mel, who began her career with Barratt, then Alfred McAlpine and Redrow prior to taking on this latest role, says.

Over the course of her career she’s worked across Cheshire, Merseyside, Shropshire, Manchester and North Wales.

“The industry is much more regulated than when I started,” Mel says. “I’ve seen the introduction of the Financial Services Act and the Property Misdescriptions Act, and now the Consumer Code. Buying a new build home now comes with a lot more guarantees and safety measures than in the early 1980s.”

She adds: “Buyers are also a lot more clued up as all the information they want and need can be sourced online. At Elan we make sure that our game is right up there and that we’re able to meet people’s expectations.”

Current availability at Hope Park Mews includes three and four-bedroom homes, priced from £229,995.
