David Devlin, owner of Belvoir Devizes, located at 19 High Street, is celebrating winning the Belvoir Online Reputation Award in recognition of the consistently high reviews that his business receives from satisfied clients.
This year’s awards, proudly sponsored by Ittria, were held at the St. George’s Park Hilton, Burton upon Trent. The event followed Belvoir’s National Conference and celebrated the achievements of the company’s highest performing franchisees.
“The Belvoir Awards is a fantastic no-expense spared event that celebrates the achievements of the network’s highest performing franchisees,” says Belvoir CEO Dorian Gonsalves. “Comedian Tom Allen, who provided a brilliant after-dinner speech, presented a total of 28 awards, in categories that included customer service, community champion, compliance, acquisitions, rankings and online reputation.
“The standard of Belvoir online reputation nominations was extremely high this year, but at the time of judging Belvoir Devizes held the number one spot out of every Belvoir office ranked by Reputation.com – a fact that is reflected by the number of landlords and tenants who decide to do business with the office after reading these reviews. I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to David and the team at Belvoir Devizes for everything that they have achieved. We wish them every success for the future.”
After receiving the award, David said: “I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of the team at Belvoir in Devizes. We are very fortunate to be based in a lovely market town and privileged to serve many wonderful people across Wiltshire. At the time we acquired the business two years ago, it had sadly been without a local owner for some time due to the passing of the founder, Tim Hoddinott. Consequently the reputation of the business had suffered in that time. The team has worked extremely hard to rebuild the reputation of the business providing outstanding service to landlords, tenants, home vendors and buyers alike. In short their efforts have been richly rewarded with 100% positive reviews in the time we have been operating Belvoir in Devizes. Every review has been 5 stars (or a ‘Recommended’ where star ratings are not an option) One manifestation of this turnaround has been that we climbed from a fairly low position in the Belvoir national rankings for online reputation to the number one position. I am extremely proud of our hard working, customer focused team for their efforts and the remarkable impact this has had on our reputation, both locally and online.”
