Gateshead Couple Swaps Cotton For Bricks And Mortar To Mark Second Wedding Anniversary

Jon & Emma Robson

A GATESHEAD couple has celebrated their second wedding anniversary in style with a little help from leading housebuilder Miller Homes as they moved into their dream new home.


Jon and Emma Robson from Low Fell began their search for a forever home after outgrowing their two-bedroom flat, and found it in The Brockwell at Park View in Gateshead, a four-bedroom home overlooking the picturesque Saltwell Park.


Securing their new home was made even more special for the couple as the completion date was set to coincide with their second wedding anniversary. As the date approached, and with help from the team at Miller Homes, Jon was able to move all their belongings into their new home while Emma was at work and surprise her with the keys on their anniversary.


Emma said: “Moving into your new home is without doubt a very special time, but to be surprised by Jon with the keys was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. Both Jon and the Miller Homes team did a fantastic job in keeping everything a secret – I had no idea what he had been planning.”


After finding their dream home at Park View, Jon and Emma were able to reserve it in just a few simple steps at their convenience by using Miller Homes’ innovative online reservation system.


Jon and Emma were the first customers in the North East to legally complete after using the new service, which allows buyers to reserve and pay a reservation fee on their chosen home from Miller Homes via the housebuilder’s website even if the sales centre is closed.


Jon said: “We’ve always been aware of the high build standard and excellent customer care offered by Miller Homes so Emma and I knew that this was who we wanted to build our forever home. Using the online reservation system was so easy and meant we were able to secure it as soon as we’d made the decision and without having to wait to visit the development and risk someone else beating us to it.


“We would highly recommend Miller Homes to our friends and family. Everyone we dealt with was so approachable and the quality of our home speaks for itself. It has been reassuring to know that Miller Homes’ involvement doesn’t simply stop once you’ve moved in and we've had good support from the customer care team.”


Emma added: “We love the location and it’s great to have a view over Saltwell Park. I can get the bus into town within 10 minutes, and it is easy for Jon’s drive to work. In addition to its location, our favourite part of our home is the kitchen, which is so spacious and full of light. We’re looking forward to enjoying lots of summer evenings in there.”


Nicola Robinson, sales advisor at Park View, said: “It was a real pleasure to be able to help Jon and Emma find their dream home and to support them through their home buying experience. It was also such an honour to be part of their wedding anniversary celebrations and to be entrusted with such an important surprise.”


Now over 98% sold, there are just two homes remaining at Park View, the flagship North East development from Miller Homes, which was awarded a five star rating in the Home Builders Federation National New Home Customer Satisfaction Survey.
