"I lived in Dumbarton but I was looking for a move to be closer to work that would reduce my travelling time. So I'd been looking at city centre flats but I wasn't having much luck in finding anything that I liked for my budget.
"A friend suggested looking for property in Cambuslang because it's such an easy commute into the city centre. To be honest it wasn't a location I'd considered before but I thought I'd pop out and have a look.
"I really liked the feel of the area, and I noticed that Taylor Wimpey was offering Part Exchange so I popped into the sales office. I realised that the two-bedroom ‘Andrew’ was in my budget so I decided to go for it.
"Everything happened so quickly and smoothly, and using the Part Exchange scheme was totally stress-free. My house in Dumbarton was already on the market with an estate agent, and luckily for me it was one of the estate agents that Taylor Wimpey uses.
“I viewed my new ‘Andrew’ home one day, and the following day Taylor Wimpey made me an offer for my property in Dumbarton that I was really happy with. I'd had my house on the market for quite a while so using Part Exchange just took all the stress away, and meant that I could look forward to moving into my new home.
"The team at Taylor Wimpey have been absolutely fantastic! They've made everything so easy and stress-free. Alason in the sales office has been great and offered me lots of advice and support throughout the whole process, and Dougie the Site Manager has been brilliant sorting out a few wee things for me and he's always checking that everything is OK.
"I bought at the end of September last year and I moved in at the beginning of December and I just love it. Everything is new, which meant that I could move in and nothing needed to be done so it's just been a really relaxing time since I moved in. I’d tackled lots of DIY in my old house, so moving to a new home has just been so chilled!
"On move-in day it was just like having a blank canvas, so I've made my home my own by adding my own personality into every room as I please.
“It's been a great move for me. My family are just half an hour away plus I'm closer to my best friend. Even better still, I've halved my journey to work so I save time, mileage and money plus it's a really easy commute so that's a great result!
"Life at Newton Farm has a lovely community feel about it - there's a real mix of people living here and everyone is so friendly.”
