A NORTHWICH lettings business has scooped its second award of the year, having been put forward by a panel of expert judges. Belvoir Lettings, in Castle Street, had already won the Gold Award for Lettings within Northwich at the British Property Awards (BPA), picking up the gong in January.
The company has now been awarded a bronze award for the north west as part of the BPA regional awards.
Franchise owner James Whalley was thrilled when he heard the news, and admits it came as a bit of a shock.
“To be honest we really weren’t expecting this so it was a very welcome surprise,” he said.
“We were judged on our customer service in terms of friendliness, willingness to help, local knowledge and speed of responses and even in our wildest dreams we didn’t think we’d receive two prestigious awards in such a short space of time.
“We got a call from the British Property Awards out of the blue to say that we’d been put forward to the regional awards and had achieved the Bronze Award – it’s amazing.”
James has also praised the national Belvoir team for their support over recent months which has contributed to the two recent awards. The company runs 170 branches.
He said: “Thanks must go to the team at Belvoir for their continued efforts in helping us secure this award – we couldn’t have done it without them.”
James has also backed plans for a second Northwich BID term.
“We will most certainly be voting for a second term for the Northwich BID,” he said.
“We would encourage all businesses to say yes too as it’s a really exciting time for Northwich and the BID’s work will help the town continue to prosper.
“There’s never been a more important time to support our fellow businesses in the Northwich area which sustain the local economy.”
