Belvoir are celebrating yet another fantastic industry award win in 2014 – this time winning Franchisor of the Year at the prestigious Negotiator Awards at the London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane on 4th November.
Dorian Gonsalves, Belvoir’s Director of Commercial and Franchising, accepted the Gold Award for Franchisor of the Year from comedian and TV quiz show host Alexander Armstrong.
“The Negotiator Awards are widely recognised as the Oscars of the property awards industry, celebrating the best and highest achievers in the residential property market. According to the organisers the entry list for 2014 was the biggest in the history of the event and competition was keener than ever,” said Dorian.
“It was therefore an incredible achievement for Belvoir to be shortlisted in five categories. Last year Belvoir won the Silver Award for Franchisor of the Year and it is amazing to go one better in 2014 and win Gold.
“I strongly believe that Belvoir is one of the most responsible, ethical and well positioned franchised businesses in the industry, with a 19-year track record to prove it. Franchise Owners are provided with a massive business opportunity and immense capacity for success. I believe the group is highly deserving of the title of Franchisor of the Year. We are also very proud that Belvoir’s website once again picked up a top award – this time Silver for Website of the Year.
“In addition I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to Emma Falco, general manager at Belvoir Peterborough and Belvoir Cambridge, who has worked for business owner Terry Lucking for six years. Emma won the Silver Award for Rising Star of the Year, a category that was introduced to identify an individual with the potential to become an industry leader. At just 26 years of age, Emma is a dedicated, focused and professional businesswoman who is committed to delivering the highest standards and continually seeks to improve her knowledge and skills.
“Ben and Daisy Davies, business owners of Belvoir Swansea were presented with Silver for Wales Agency of the Year, and this is demonstration of their successful business and the consistently high levels of customer service that they provide. Finally, Sue and John Warburton of Belvoir Leamington Spa were thrilled to be shortlisted for Midlands Agency of the Year. Although they missed out on an award this year, the nomination shows the hard work and dedication they have.
“Just being shortlisted from a list such high-quality entries is testament to all the hard work, initiative and determination that Belvoir’s franchise owners and staff demonstrate on a daily basis. I also believe that their success can be credited to the exceptional support that is provided to them by the team at Belvoir’s Central Office.
“Belvoir won the Gold Award for Lettings Franchise of the Year at the Lettings Agency of the Year Awards for a record fourth time earlier this year. Winning Franchisor of the Year at the Negotiator Awards is the icing on the cake for 2014 and I could not be more proud of the success and achievements that the company is now experiencing.”
