Celebrations all round at the Chard office of Greenslade Taylor Hunt, which has just won top honours for its customer service in The British Property Awards.

The High Street branch took the gold award after an extensive judging period, which puts the focus on customer service.

“Mystery shoppers” put the estate agents through their paces, judging their performance against a checklist of 25 criteria.

Robert McLean, of The British Property Awards said: “Our awards have been designed to remove any opportunity for bias or manipulation. If an agent has been attributed with one of our awards, it is simply down to the fantastic customer service levels that they have demonstrated across a prolonged period of time. Winning agents should be proud that their customer service levels provide a benchmark for their local, regional and national competition.”
