Phil Spencer, who has hosted the ESTAS every year since their inception in 2004 said “I think these awards help us all to focus on customer service for the greater good of our own businesses as well as the wider industry. We must all drive standards higher, raising the bar in terms of the quality of advice we offer and the level of customer care we deliver.”
Agents were shortlisted in 18 regions around the country. “The ESTAS competition is about recognising the hard work agents put in every day, every week and month of the year”says Simon Brown who runs the national scheme. “So to be shortlisted is a great achievement, but to win is the highest accolade any agent can achieve”.
Michael Redmond of Redmove said “We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised at this year’s ESTAS. It means so much to us as we know it’s our customers who have judged our performance. We take our levels of customer service very seriously because we know clients have a choice. We have always been very proud of the personal service we provide and this is great way to demonstrate how good we really are.”
Alex Chesterman, Founder and CEO of Zoopla Property Group said, “We’re now in our fourth year of sponsoring the ESTAS and are delighted to be once again supporting this key industry event. The collection of valuable customer feedback is essential to success in any business and rewarding those who provide the best service in the industry, as these awards do, is perfectly aligned with our business.
