Conveyancing Association named official partner of ESTAS Conveyancer Awards
Association's operations director â€˜delighted' to secure partnership
The Conveyancing Association has become the official industry partner for the ESTAS Conveyancer Awards in a two year deal.
The announcement is a coup for the ESTAS Group, which runs a national customer feedback scheme and produces the largest annual awards event for the estate agency sector.
Lloyd Davies, operations director at the Conveyancing Association, said: ‘We’re delighted to support a set of awards which highlight firms who deliver great service and which help to drive standards higher across the sector. We’re certain that large numbers of association members, who pride themselves on the quality of their service offering, will be putting themselves forward for these awards.’
Simon Brown, founder of the ESTAS, explained: ‘We’re absolutely delighted to have the backing of the leading trade body for the conveyancing industry. Having met with Lloyd and attended their conference last week it’s obvious they are forward thinking and we’re looking forward to developing and growing the awards with their support.’
Nominations are now open to the unique awards, which rate firms on the level of customer service they provide based purely on feedback from customers.
There are categories for regional and national firms as well as a special ‘People Awards’ category recognising individual members of staff, again based on customer feedback. The inaugural awards ceremony will take place on 3 October 2017 at the Grosvenor House in London. The event will be hosted by ESTAS brand ambassador Phil Spencer (pictured).
Spencer, the UK’s best loved TV property expert, said: ‘Taking part in the ESTAS sets firms apart from their competitors. It sends a clear message that they are passionate about customer service, prepared to go that extra mile for their clients and keen to listen to feedback.’
SearchFlow will headline sponsor the competition. Maud Rousseau, group marketing director at SearchFlow, said: ‘We believe that these awards will become the benchmark for customer service in the conveyancing sector.’
Solicitors Journal is the official media partner of the ESTAS Conveyancer Awards.
