Why did you choose The Nostell Estate as your base…

Living in the next village, I’ve often walked in the Nostell Priory parklands with Oscar, my yellow labrador and our Head of Security! Yet, I didn’t know the business park was here! It’s so well hidden. I was looking for a professional base to host clients, and a client recommended I take a look at The Nostell Estate.

I knew from my first visit that I wanted to be based here. The grounds and facilities are so well maintained by Peter, Gayle and the team. Plus, I can walk Oscar to work from home, which is ideal. 2022 was an extremely challenging year for me healthwise, So having the option to get regular exercise and fresh air contributes to my overall well-being. I love it!

What can clients expect from their visit?

Our lovely administrative assistant, Linda Binns, greets clients in a stylish, homely space. It’s designed to make our clients feel relaxed and free of stress because they’re often making important decisions about their future. Parking is free, and clients are welcome to call into Meridian for refreshments before or after their appointment with us. At HomeLife, we pride ourselves on being professional yet approachable, and The Nostell Estate is the perfect environment for the business.

What’s next for HomeLife?

Alongside the business of helping people realise their ambitions in the now. For example, buy their dream first home or remortgage for home improvements, we’re helping them to protect themselves and their assets for future generations. We offer support relating to wills, trust wills, lasting power of attorney and probate – and we welcome anyone interested in finding out more to contact us. 

The main thing that people should know about me is that I LOVE my job and always move forward with positivity. If I can offer help or advice, I’m more than happy to do so, so please don’t be afraid to get in touch.
