A family’s smooth move to The Oaks at Hayne Farm all down to Baker Estates’ Home Exchange scheme

A couple have moved into their ‘dream home’ at The Oaks at Hayne Farm and praised the housebuilders, Baker Estates, for a very smooth move.


Stephen Hill and partner Dr Olga Palmer purchased their five-bedroom detached house at the popular development in Honiton for £645,000 and chose the company’s Home Exchange scheme which made the whole move stress-free.


Stephen explained: “The company’s fantastic Home Exchange scheme made the whole moving process more pleasurable and took the pressure off as it wasn’t down to us to sell the property. Instead, we could relax and enjoy the experience of buying our dream home: picking kitchen upgrades, floorings and carpets.”


Stephen added: “The service from Baker Estates was quite exemplary and it’s the personal touches that count so much which they do so well. We had complete peace of mind and I would recommend the company to anyone.”


Stephen, who works for Babcock, has two teenage children who have quickly settled in. He said: “The extra space has benefited the whole family with the boys loving having a room each. We were stumbling over each other in our last three-bedroom house and now we have plenty of space which has been a game changer. Having an open plan kitchen and diner, a lounge and a separate office is just what we were looking for.”


The family were looking for a property to stay close to Honiton, which has so much to offer, as Stephen explains:


“Honiton is a great place to live. It has good schools, excellent facilities, rail links to get you everywhere and there’s a beach eight miles away in Sidmouth. We all love Hayne Farm’s rural location so we have the best of all worlds!”


Annie Williams, Sales and Marketing Director at Baker Estates, commented: “It’s lovely to hear Stephen’s feedback about our Home Exchange scheme which is receiving excellent feedback. We remain committed to providing exceptional homes and enhancing the overall homebuying experience.


“The introduction of the Home Exchange scheme reflects the company's dedication to meeting the diverse needs of its customers and creating a positive and seamless journey to homeownership. We are receiving more and more customers that are making their dream move a reality with Home Exchange.”
