A BUILDER from Morpeth has bagged himself £1,000 by recommending his friends move into the house next door.
Stephen Foster bought a three-bedroom semi-detached house at Miller Homes’ Miller @ Beaumont Court development in Pegswood.
And the 28-year-old was so impressed with his new neighbourhood that he encouraged his friends Chris and Amy Lyall to move into the adjoining home.
As a thank you, Miller Homes presented him with the cash reward which he will use on furnishing his new home.
Stephen said: “I reserved my new home last year and moved in just in time for Christmas.
“I am a site manager myself by trade, so the standard of build was important to me and I knew Miller Homes had a good reputation.
“I was so impressed by the quality of the build, the layout of the rooms, the quiet location and the friendliness of the area that when my mate Chris told me he was looking for a new home, I told him that without a doubt he should consider a home at Beaumont Court
“I invited him round to see my new home, which he fell in love with and the next day he went to the sales office and reserved his own.
“I’m over the moon with the £1,000, it will go nicely towards paying off my first mortgage repayment and furnishing my new home.”
Miller Homes regional sales director Steve McElroy said: “All the current buyer has to do is tell a friend, work colleague or relative who is considering moving about Miller Homes and once the chosen friend has legally completed on a plot the recommender receives £1,000.”
