"We know buying a house can be stressful but it was so straightforward - we paid our deposit, had the valuation and that was it. We just waited for our home to be finished and in fact we were able to move in a lot earlier than expected, which was great.
When my partner saw the house, she loved it. The style was perfect for us … There’s plenty of space and the kitchen/diner is great, it’s a place where we spend a lot of time simply because everyone can be together.
I’d definitely recommend Miller Homes...
...because it was such a smooth process and that made buying our home so easy, we were looked after very well and love the home we have."
“From the very beginning the service we had has been excellent, it’s something that people want but don’t get a lot of the time.
We’ve really found our dream home. When we get home from work it’s to a beautiful house, it’s something we’ve always looked forward to having and ticked all the boxes for us.
I would definitely recommend Miller Homes because...
...we’ve had good service all the way through and friends and family who’ve seen our home have been impressed with the style and quality.”
