AN endurance athlete with more than two decades of experience of selling new homes has run into an old colleague in her new role with Elan Homes.

Shirley Anderson has joined the Cheshire-based homebuilder as a sales executive, selling new homes at Millfields in Middleton.

Shirley has worked in the housing industry for 24 years in a variety of roles including new homes sales, conducting land appraisals for new sites and helping sellers become buyers as a part exchange manager.

Shirley has worked for large PLC homebuilders and has previously worked alongside Elan’s regional sales director Marie Morris.

“I want to be proud of the company I work for and I feel that I can be proud of working for Elan. They truly deliver on their promise to build beautiful homes in stunning locations that you’ll love inside out.  I’m excited about this next stage of my career,” said Shirley, who lives in a new build home in Cheshire

“I understand the process from a personal and professional level. I can relate to what customers are going through when they’re wating for their new home to be built. Buying a home is a big deal for anyone and, because I have been there, I know first-hand how excited they are and how important it is to them.”

Shirley has represented Team GB as an age group athlete in the duathlon, has run numerous marathons and ultramarathons.

“I’m bit of an endurance freak,” Shirley laughed. “Over the years I’ve raised around £10,000 for various charities through my love of endurance sports. I love cooking too, particularly anything with spices.  I’m a big foodie – I need to be for the energy.”

At Millfields, Elan is helping to spice up the local property market, offering a choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

“Part of the appeal of Millfields is that it offers the chance to live within an established neighbourhood with a diverse community. It’s particularly popular with families and those who want easy access to Manchester city centre,” Shirley added.

“Now is a great time to buy as the property market is booming at the moment thanks to reduced Stamp Duty rates and increased mortgage availability."

Current prices at Millfields range from £269,995 for a three-bedroom detached Marford Special style home to £299,995 for a four-bedroom semi-detached Ashley. Elan will consider part exchange on both of these properties, helping speed up the selling and buying process.
