We are delighted to introduce a new member of the team here at Hale Homes.
Hale resident Juliette – or Jules, as she is also known – joined the team in March 2021 and has brought a wealth of property knowledge with her, along with an enthusiasm and energy that will no doubt be a huge asset to us as a business.
Despite studying Psychology at university and working in social housing after this, the attraction of selling eventually lured her into the family retail business which she transformed into a highly successful bridal wholesaler, buying from all over the world and selling across the UK.
Whilst the bridal business was hugely successful Jules made the decision to wind this down in order to start a family, and after having 3 children she started her career in the property market. It was then that she met Jackie Atkins, founder of Hale Homes.
Now, Jules and Jackie are working side by side to manage demand for Hale Homes’ personal, professional and unique approach to property sales. “There really isn’t a typical day for us”, Jules says. “Some days we may have back to back viewings, and others may be taken up booking in appointments or undertaking valuations. We could be answering Rightmove enquiries or progressing offers that have come in. It’s really varied which is why I love it.
“I also enjoy seeing the process move through the cycle – valuation, brochure, advertising, viewings, feedback, offers, sales, handing the keys over. It’s so satisfying to see the customers finally get their dream home at the end of the process.”
“We do things a little differently here at Hale Homes as well. We don’t currently have a shop front – simply because we really don’t feel we need one with the vast majority of people now doing their property searches online – and it means we can keep our outgoings down and ultimately pass this saving on to our clients.
“We like to think we offer a more bespoke, personable service, tailored to our clients’ needs. We are really happy to do more ‘hand holding’ if that’s what’s needed as we understand buying a house can be quite an intense experience at times but it really all depends on what the customer needs.
“I just love to be out and about, connecting with people, even during the pandemic where restrictions have been in place. I get a real buzz from selling houses. And I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens to the housing market next, once things are back to normal.”
Originally a North Manchester girl, Jules and her family moved to live in Hale village 4.5 years ago and in order to accommodate everything that they wanted from a home decided to design and build their own house, including an annexe for their eldest child and an outdoor shower for their 4 dogs – Sherry, Merlot, Jamieson and Diablo. Spot the theme!
When Jules is not selling houses she likes nothing more than keeping fit, rising early to do an online class, walking the dogs, or travelling to the Lakes and Peaks to do some hill walking.
