Meet the Team: Customer Service Department
Clarendon Homes has evolved and expanded greatly since being formed over 20 years ago. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to some of our office departments, to give an insight into the company from the staff’s perspective, exploring our team culture, favourite developments and more! This week we introduce our Customer Service team…
Julia, Customer Service/Administrator
Julia has worked with us for just over a year, some of you may have heard her contagious laughter on the phone! She is on hand to organise the snagging and deal with any questions or issues customers may have once they move into their new homes, as well as keeping busy with admin on the side too. She used to work in the banking sector and is a mother of four children; two boys and two girls.
Krzysztof, Customer Service
Krzysztof has been working with us for 3 years since moving away from agricultural work. He works closely with our customers, attending to their annual snagging as well as any other issues that may arise. Whenever you see him he always seems to have a beaming smile on his face.
