My Beal Home

‘This is our forever home. The quality is amazing and the location is perfect’

First-time buyers Sam Laybourne and her partner Lewis Alcock have joined the growing community at our Pilgrim’s Walk development in Hessle, East Yorkshire.

Primary school teacher Sam and college tutor Lewis, who are both 30, moved into their three-bedroom Dalton home in July along with their pet tortoise, Herbert!

Tell us about your Beal home and why you love it so much.

We’re first-time buyers and previously lived in a rented city centre apartment, without an outdoor area. We love the garden, space and layout at Pilgrim’s Walk and really enjoy watching the squirrels and wildlife in the garden. Our tortoise Herbert loves it!

The location is perfect, moving here has cut Lewis’ commute by about half an hour. Our home is so light, airy and quiet. This is our forever home.

What are the best things about being part of the community at Pilgrim’s Walk?

We’ve enjoyed getting to know our neighbours. We’ve all been through the moving experience together and it’s nice to see more people settling in. It’s already a nice community with a mixture of residents, including families, retired people and young professionals. Everyone here appreciates the quiet, calm community.

How did you find the service from Beal?

The service was really good and Beal looked after us very well. They guided us every step of the way, supported us with everything we needed to do and made the moving process very easy for us. They were so supportive and completely took the stress out of moving.

How did Beal help you through the buying process?

Beal recommended an independent mortgage advisor, which made it easier for us. We felt we could trust the advisor and their advice was really useful. Buying a house can be stressful but it was a smooth process for us, thanks to Beal. After we moved in, Beal kept in regular contact and responded quickly if we needed anything.

How have the Beal team helped you to make your home a perfect fit for your lifestyle and tastes?

We were delighted by the quality and range of options in the Design Lounge. We chose extra cupboards in the kitchen and fitted wardrobes in the main bedroom.

The house is so much bigger than where we previously lived and we’re delighted with it.

What would you say to other househunters about buying a Beal home?

Go for it – there’s nothing stopping you! Beal offer a lot more than other housebuilders and looked after us so well.

The quality of our home is amazing and the customer service and help on offer is so much better than we expected. Beal have been there for us all the way and we would definitely recommend them.
