A grandmother of two is helping retirees find their dream home at Brio’s new retirement community currently under development in Chapelton five miles south of Aberdeen.

Violet Teague, 71, who has more than 32 years’ experience selling new homes in the Aberdeenshire residential market has come out of retirement and become a part-time sales advisor at Brio Retirement Living’s Landale Court in Chapelton.

Based in the sales suite at Liddell Park, Violet is helping retirees who are interested in buying a new home at Landale Court, showcasing the range of stylish properties, providing advice on the care and support services available and the lifestyle on offer.

Violet brings with her a wealth of experience of working in new home sales, in particular selling to over 55s, having worked for some of the region’s biggest names in property.

Violet, who is originally from Aberdeen and now lives in Fordoun, said: “I retired two years ago, but I missed the buzz of selling fantastic new homes and meeting so many lovely people. I’m a real people person and I’m still full of bounce. I enjoy helping people find a new home and guiding them through the process.

“Finding the right home in your retirement years is such a big decision.

People are often downsizing from a larger house that may have become too much for them to maintain or coping with changes to their health, this might mean they or their partner are looking for the peace of mind that care and support is available should they need it.

“I have a genuine understanding of what people around my age are looking for in their retirement years and I look forward to helping them on their journey to the next stage in their life at Landale Court.”

Violet, who joined Brio at the end of January, is part of a growing number of retirees choosing to work in their later years.

Brio Landale Court will consist of 94 new one-and-two-bedroom apartments and cottages in the picturesque new town of Chapelton.

The first homeowners are set to move in during the summer.

The sales suite is open seven days a week, Mon-Fri 10:30am-5:00pm and Sat- Sun 11:00am-4:00pm and viewings are available of the show cottages and show apartment.
