#House-Hut Land Two Top Estate Agent Awards

Real estate and lettings franchise House-Hut has won Gold for the South West Region and The Grand Prix Silver Award for the UK at the Estate and Letting Agent Awards 2010. For the third year in a row, House-Hut was rewarded for its superb customer service – this time landing one of the national Grand Prix awards for the whole of the UK.

Phil Spencer, presenter of Channel 4’s Location, Location, presented the award at a ceremony in London attended by 450 estate and letting agents. The results were calculated from research carried out among customers and more than 19,000 votes were submitted, making the awards an invaluable industry resource.

Maria Collier, managing director of House-Hut, said: “Winning these awards justifies our claim that we offer the best service in the UK and at half the price of most other estate agents. What makes these awards so special is that they are voted for by our customers – surely our greatest critics and today they have confirmed we are the best in the UK.”

House-Hut’s Sales Director Paul Collier added: “Having won the Silver for the South West in 2008 and 2009, we wanted to go one better this year. Winning Gold for the South West proves we are the best estate agent in the region and to win the Grand Prix silver overall was a real tribute to our hard working staff.”

Gary Rigby, of FDS Southern, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with both Paul and Maria Collier of House-Hut and assist them in developing this exciting franchise opportunity. They have a proven formula for success and are now able to offer this award winning franchise to like minded business builders across the UK, there has been a phenomenal interest in the franchise from day one.”

House-Hut, which has been operating for five years in the Bath area, are looking to expand their award winning services across the UK so that others may benefit from their award winning service and have recently opened their first franchise in Eastbourne with more branches planned over the coming months.

Mr Collier added: “We regularly get requests to sell properties in other parts of the country and by expanding through our franchises we hope to go some way towards meeting this demand”.
