bringing quality to life

Diane MacKenzie

Sales Advisor

The Kirkwood Homes team makes me feel proud to work for a home builder that offers quality and value for money - it stands out far beyond competitors.

What is your role at Kirkwood Homes?

I’m a Sales Advisor for Kirkwood Homes – and manage the sales at our Countesswells development. I will also be responsible for the sales at our new site, Cowdray Meadows at Dunecht and I oversee the sales at Kingsford Rise, Alford. I look after the clients at these developments from pre-reservation right through to handover.

What most appealed to you about the job?

I’ve always worked with the public, so it was an easy decision for me to move to new home sales. Meeting new people every day and getting a real sense of helping customers find their dream home is exciting - I love being able to provide market advice and a quality service to all my customers during their home buying process.

Which developments do you manage and what are your favourite things about those?

I manage our developments in Countesswells, Kingsford Rise in Alford and our newest site Cowdray Meadows in Dunecht. 

I love that the Kirkwood Homes development in Countesswells is a really intimate site in easily the best location of the new Countesswells masterplan. We really are the luxury builder here and it sets us apart from our competitors. Countesswells is perfect in its proximity to the city and ideal for clients working at Westhill/Prime Four. Although it’s close to Aberdeen, the woods and walkways are on the doorstep, so there is a real countryside feel to living here!

What's your favourite housetype and why?

I absolutely love The Craig house type, it’s an excellent three bed detached home with a kitchen/family room that flows really well – plus a generous lounge. The master bedroom and en-suite are very luxurious, incorporating a centralised bath and separate shower cubicle. It’s one of our best-sellers!

What do you consider to be the top three features of a Kirkwood Home?

Firstly – the quality specification Kirkwood Homes offer. At Countesswells we have German Hacker kitchens and Quartz worktops as standard - all supplied by Laings. I love the way Kirkwood Homes has the customer at heart in its design and the room sizes in its homes are generous. Unlike some developers, Kirkwood Homes also enjoy great storage.

What do you love most about your job?

Taking customers from pre-reservation all the way to handing over the keys to their dream home, whether they be first time buyers, upsizers or downsizers, it never fails to make me feel proud to have helped them achieve this.

What does being part of Kirkwood Homes mean to you?

The Kirkwood Homes team makes me feel proud to work for a home builder that offers quality and value for money - it stands out far beyond competitors. Kirkwood Homes is totally focused on ensuring that the customer has the best experience before reserving their new home, right through to their move in date. Our team are an amazing group to work with, we all encourage each other and can be a pretty sociable bunch!
