Winchester lettings team going for awards gold

Clients impressed by the high standards of the lettings team at Carter Jonas in Winchester are behind the team’s nomination in the premier awards for the UK’s residential property industry.

The ESTAS, one of the largest and longest running awards in the UK property industry, are open only to firms who are voted for by clients. The service provided by the Carter Jonas lettings team has led to the firm being shortlisted for the UK’s top regional lettings agency category.

More locally, the Winchester team managed by Zaza Oswald is in the running for gold or silver in the south east regional awards – the only lettings agency in the city to be shortlisted.

“Providing an efficient lettings service, whether on a tenant-finding basis or with fully managed properties, is essential in such a vibrant lettings market as that in Winchester,” said Zaza, partner in charge of residential lettings for the whole of Hampshire.

“The awards ceremony takes place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on April 15 and what we like about these awards is that only clients can nominate us to go forward and without delivering a consistently high level of service there is no chance of us progressing even as far as the shortlist.

“We have received good reviews and high ratings from our landlords for our lettings and management services.

“There have been many significant alterations in the last 12 months, including the introduction of immigration checks and safety rules on which we have briefed landlords in detail, and I’m particularly pleased that 100 per cent of our landlords rated us as good or excellent for the way we kept them informed about the law regarding lettings. You can’t do better than top marks and we also performed consistently for other things, including our range of services.”

The awards will be presented in front of 1,000 of the UK’s top property professionals by TV property expert Phil Spencer, who said: “Any firm that enters The ESTAS has already sent a clear message that they are passionate about customer service so to make it on to the shortlist is a huge achievement in itself.”
