Four properties at the company’s Abbeyfields site in Bourne, Lincolnshire, have also been snapped up by Larkfleet staff.

Didie Kearns and Liz Browne both work as sales executives for Larkfleet, helping members of the public find their dream home.

Technical administrator Alison Lea and management accountant Katie Taylor have already moved into new homes at the Abbeyfields development.

Larkfleet CEO Karl Hick commented: “It is always pleasing to see how popular our properties are with the general public. However, these recent purchases by members of Larkfleet Group’s own staff really go to show how highly our own employees rate the quality and value for money of our properties.
