BELVOIR Andover win national award

We are delighted to announce that Belvoir Andover wins ‘Best in South’ award at the glitzy National Belvoir Awards held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in the East Midlands last Friday Night.

The business owners were on hand to collect the award which has recognised Andover as being ‘Best in South’. The south territory has some 20 offices within it including the largest office in the country!

Phil Pinkney said ‘We are absolutely delighted to have received this award which recognises the efforts made by the whole team to enhance and expand the services offered to both its clients and fellow franchisees. The introduction of selling property has seen the biggest level of interest and we do not intend to rest until the public knows how much better we are that too!’

Greg Greatbatch said ‘We were not expecting this award which makes receiving it even more special. To be recognised as ‘Best in South’really makes all the hard work our team has put in over the last 12 months, really worthwhile. We were up against stiff competition with the largest Belvoir in the country being in the same south region!’

This is the second consecutive year Belvoir Andover has won an award at the annual gathering of over 160 offices at their annual conference.

Belvoir Andover acquired two of the local estate agents in 2013 being Redwoods and ClearMove, they also moved into their Flagship offices on Bridge Street and doubled their team. Lastly 2013 brought the introduction of Selling Property too and quickly became the second largest agent for selling.

When asked about the incredible amount of change that has taken place for the Andover office in 2013 they commented:

Greg Greatbatch said ‘It is important for us to consolidate our progress of 2013 and ensure that our commitment to outstanding customer service remains strong. We have made a considerable investment over the past 12 months which we believe was essential to maintain our undisputed ‘Leading in Lettings’ crown but also adding the additional services of sales and mortgages that was missing from our previous business model’

Daniel Tarrant commented ‘It has been an exciting journey over the past year, partnering with the incredibly successful Greg and Phil who have achieved such a phenomenal success with their agent since I met them back in 2005. I have always aspired to be my own boss and in 2013 my dream became a reality. I am proud to be working with these two bringing all my experience in successfully selling property in my home town of Andover. Clearly there was a gap in the market for offering a much higher level of customer service in estate agency than the public were used to which has played a big part in our success’

Phil Pinkney said ‘We have been very focused on where our business needed to be in order to offer our clients continued stability, high levels of customer service and a range of services that were consistent with the needs and demands of our extensive client base’

When asked what plans the business owners had for 2014 they commented:

‘We have a variety of plans for 2014. All will further enhance the service level and diversity that has been implemented in 2013. We plan to build on the team success of last year but you will see some new faces as both Karen and Emma go on maternity leave’ says Phil Pinkney

‘Commercial property sales and lettings were introduced in the late part of 2013 which has seen an enormous amount of interest with a number of successful contracts exchange with large blue chip companies. We are expecting to see more and more Commercial advertising boards go up around Andover in the coming months’ said Greg Greatbatch

‘We simply need more property to satisfy the intense demand we are seeing for residential property and the surprisingly high level of buy to let demand. There has been an unprecedented level of new investors coming in to our offices this year and we are delighted to be helping these new landlords start to build their buy to let portfolios’ says Daniel Tarrant
