The South Molton branch of Greenslade Taylor Hunt is celebrating after winning the top accolade in Devon in the British Property Awards for first rate customer service.

“Mystery shoppers” put staff at the branch at Broad Street, South Molton, through their paces and assessed 25 different criteria to rate their customer service – including how emails and phone calls were handled.

The process resulted in a gold award for the branch, rating it top in Devon. It has also been shortlisted for a number of national awards that will be announced later in the year.

Richard Webber MRICS, Partner in charge of the South Molton branch, said: “We are delighted and proud to have received this award.”

Richard McLean, from the British Property Awards, said: “Our award has 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.”
