Home Reach in action

Greg Fitzgerald 
Chief Executive Officer
Vistry Group PLC
“Affordability and delivering quality homes with a broad mix of tenures is embedded in our sustainability strategy, so working with partners such as heylo is absolutely at the heart of what we do.

We have developed a great relationship with the team, which has already seen hundreds of happy customers moving into our homes across the country, and we look forward to continuing to work together to make a difference for those individuals and families striving to get the keys to their dream homes.”
“We are currently working with heylo housing’s team on a project in Lytham. The scheme would have not taken place had it not been for heylo commercial and pragmatic approach.

From the outset and at inception of the scheme, heylo officials were supportive and positive. That approach has continued throughout and the various areas (sales, marketing, administration, legals, executive etc. have all been extremely helpful leading to the success of the project.


Furthermore, heylo housing have also worked well with the other stake holders such as Homes England and Fylde Council.


Most of all, the environment created has enabled five (so far) people (a nurse, electrician, teacher, an undertaker’s apprentice and administrative clerk) to ‘get on the property ladder’.”
“We’ve recently engaged with heylo housing and their Home Reach “part buy – part rent” product. Having worked with them over a couple of our sites so far, we’ve already seen the benefit of opening the market to a different pool of buyers, and in turn have seen an increase of foot traffic from an area of the market we weren’t always able to obtain. 

Given the success of the product with Hilbre Homes, we’re keen to engage with heylo long term to assist us in the sales of this nature and can clearly see the product helps those that were originally struggling to get a foot on the property ladder. 

The teams we’ve been working with are well versed in the area of the market they operate within and form a great support structure for any housebuilder wanting to engage working in partnership with them.”
“There’s no doubt in our minds that the Home Reach scheme has greatly benefited our customers and diversified the product we’re able to offer them...

With the current Help to Buy scheme coming to an end in 2021, prospective buyers have responded so well to the alternative opportunities provided by Home Reach. We’ve noted that some wouldn’t have been able to afford a mortgage using Help To Buy, but the Home Reach scheme enabled them to get on the ladder...


From a business perspective, Home Reach has supported us from the very beginning, providing first rate training for our sales teams. Their help in facilitating necessary plot swaps is something else we greatly appreciate, as it enables us to respond flexibly to a lack of availability while still addressing the needs and wants of the customer."
