Martin & Co Yeovil leaps into the local property spotlight with a nomination in the Western Gazette Business Awards in the category of Young Business, held on the 27th June 2013.
The awards are now in their 9th year and are sponsored by Quedam Shopping Centre, thisisdorset.co.uk and thisissomerset.co.uk. More than 80 businesses in Somerset and Dorset waited to find out if they were nominated for an award within the business awards, making the nomination for Martin & Co Yeovil exceptionally credible, considering the youthful age of the office.
Martin & Co Yeovil is part of a nationally recognisable brand of almost 200 branches spanning from Dover to Aberdeen, Truro to Belfast and also in Central London, both online and on the street. The office has just celebrated its first birthday, and is run by managing director Emma Higgins, a former Royal Navy servicewoman. The office has a growing profile just shy of 50 managed portfolios, and having let just fewer than 80 properties since the off spanning a wide circumference of the area surrounding Yeovil.
Speaking of the process of becoming a franchise owner in the Martin & Co family, Emma says: ‘Without Martin & Co Ltd and my allocated Operations Director, it would have taken me a great deal longer and would have been much less smooth no doubt, to manage the shop fit, recruitment, staff training, setting up of the business, VAT registration, bank accounts, office furniture, IT systems and many other things”
Martin & Co Yeovil also remains true to the development and nourishment of those ‘looking for an in’ into the property lettings industry, recently offering a school leaver a Lettings Administrator Apprenticeship with the full support of the office.
Martin & Co Yeovil Managing Director comments “I am finding more and more customers are now coming to me through the recommendation of previous or current customers and I am certain that we are building a reputation for excellent service, with a smile that can be relied upon and that is good value for money”
Comments from valued customers demonstrate why the office has proved itself to be an excellent choice for landlords.
“You have been so incredibly professional and a fabulous communicator, I couldn’t have asked for more” Mr. T, Yeovil
“Thank you very much for all the work you put in to letting our house – you have made the whole process painless and I have been very impressed with the way you and Martin & Co have operated” Mr. R
