Meet our team

Our family team is at the heart of our business, we’re proud that some of our colleagues have been with us for many years and we’re equally as proud to take on new members to join our ever-expanding Head Office team. In our new series we’re introducing the people behind our homes, from the head office team who run the business side of things, to our Sales Advisors, who guide our customers through the process of buying a home from us, to the skilled craftsmen who transform our sites into beautiful new communities across Yorkshire and Lancashire.

We are happy to welcome our new Marketing Manager, Vanessa Benson, as our newest team member. With years of experience in the industry and a keen eye for detail we hope Vanessa, working alongside the Design Director and Sales Manager, will bring a fresh approach to selling our homes and help to ensure smooth running of our new home sales.

What experience do you bring to your role at Skipton Properties Vanessa? I have worked in the new build sector for 8 years in various roles, gaining an understanding of the intricate details of a quality new build home and the buying process. Living in a new build property myself I already have an understanding of the internal designs of a modern family home.

What are you most excited about in your new role at Skipton Properties?. I’m thrilled to be joining the Skipton Properties team and to be given the opportunity to learn and further develop my current knowledge and skills. I have very recently completed a Diploma in Interior Design and look forward furthering our creativity in the fit out and customer selections generally to our homes, mirroring the latest trends in furnishings, fixtures and fittings and colour schemes throughout.

What do you look for in a new home? First and foremost, The Location: growing up in the area where Skipton Properties predominantly build I feel I already have a knowledge for what attracts buyers to the area, their lifestyle needs and local amenity requirements.  The size and floor plans: your home has to be practical, I like to think about what each room will be used for, and whether it will fit my lifestyle now and in the future. The finishing touches: the simplest home can be transformed thanks to the installed hardware put in place by the developer. And last but not least, The Customer Journey: the new home buying process should be as easy and informed as possible from start to finish!
