Hello! My name is June Ballantine.
Today, on the first of June, I start a new and exciting phase of my career. I am delighted to be joining the team here at Luxury Living Developments as Head Of Sales And Marketing.
Having spent the last 15 years in property and most recently in retirement living with Mccarthy & Stone, this is a perfect opportunity to be part of a truly inspiring and innovative company offering retirement living at a whole new level within the idyllic surroundings of Cumbria.
No stranger to premium brands, I worked for Jaeger for many years, offering a very personal and bespoke level of service.
In addition, having owned a restaurant with my husband very early on in my career, I discovered my desire to provide the ultimate 'customer experience'.
In both Jaeger and a bespoke estate agents, attention to detail and personal commitment to the client were in their DNA , so I have been able to hone these skills over the years.
Taking a client through the journey in the retirement sector is very different to mainstream. The emotion attached to a move in later years can be huge and often compounded by illness or bereavement.
Trust is a key factor for the potential buyer. Having a qualification in counselling has helped me to understand better the human emotions people at this stage can face, and enables me work with them through their concerns and fears as they start their journey to their new life.
With my life learning to date, I can say that I feel I have found a role that I have been waiting for - for some time - and I am excited to be part of this adventure here at Scalesceugh Villas - the flagship of LLD, who I believe will be market leaders within the industry. Watch this space!
