Many of us experienced the voracity of the recent summer storms, however, the home of one Sittingbourne family were fortunate enough to escape when their home was hit.
The couple, Mr and Mrs Jeffery’s, visited many local letting agents, trawled through websites and many newspapers in order to search for a property to let, however, finding a suitable home proved to be a real challenge.
Their story was picked up by the Sittingbourne News Extra and came to the attention of Gordon Henderson MP, who is in regular contact with Swale based agent, Family Homes, who were able to secure a tenancy for Mr and Mrs Jeffery on the very same day. Mr Jeffery, pictured with his wife collecting the keys to their home, expressed his appreciation to Gordon Henderson and his team, and to Helen Page (pictured) and the Family Homes staff, for their friendly and flexible approach in helping them during their hour of need.
Sunil Popat, Director of Family Homes (who are celebrating 25 years in business), said, “The reason we were able to help Mr and Mrs Jeffery, was mainly due to being a long established local family owned company who are able react very quickly to customer needs.
Gordon Henderson added, “It is crucial for me and my team to be able to work effectively with local businesses, in order to help more members of our community. The focus of working with business people in Swale is very close to my heart, and this sad situation just highlights what can be achieved very quickly with sound business relationships with local business owners.”
