A Derry couple are preparing for an amazing trip to New York Courtesy of Taggart Homes this Christmas.

Taggart Homes, Northern Irelands leading house builders ran a Facebook Like & Share Competition called #taggartconvoy.

The #taggartconvoy competition had over 4,500 entries and this lucky couple were chosen at random.

Rhys Glen & Aiveen Murray from Pelham road  in Derry are the first couple from Northern Ireland  to win a prize in the Taggart Homes Facebook  competitions and are hugely excited about doing some Christmas shopping in New York.

Rhys Glen who is a Software Developer at OneSource Virtual told the Derry News: Thanks a million Taggart Homes, we’re absolutely buzzing! Cannot believe it! I Kept saying I'd love to go to New York sometime and now thanks to entering this facebook draw it'll be happening! Thank you so much, a dream come true.”

Rhys said he is a fan of Taggart Homes.

‘‘I see the quality they are producing right now; I think their marketing is outstanding, especially on Facebook. I see they are nominated for a marketing ward and I really hope they win it. The pictures and videos of the houses they are building are beautiful, I hope someday I can be a Taggart Home owner, fingers crossed.”

Taggart Homes are currently building in Culmore and in the Crescent Link.

They have recently been given the green light for the first phase of a development involving 211 new homes in Culmore.

A Taggart Homes spokesperson said: “The Company is currently on site with four developments and has sold more than 100 homes since the beginning of 2017.

“Each home is finished to the highest possible specification with quality inside and outside each property only seen in high-end gated communities in America.”

Taggart Homes have been named finalists in the North West Business awards for best Digital & Social Media Award.

George Fleming, president of Londonderry Chamber, said: “Strong businesses are the basis of a strong economy – and it is only right that achievement is recognised.”

Taggart Homes hope to be recognised for their marketing at the award ceremony in the Everglades Hotel on Friday May 19.
