In November 2010 Marsh & Parsons were voted the Best Estate Agent in the UK, having won the 'Best Medium Estate Agency in London' and 'Best Medium UK Estate Agency' rounds.
The awards, associated with the Times and Sunday Times, are the longest running, most sought after and prestigious in our industry. We were recognised for our staff retention levels, our recruitment processes and the way we motivate our people to get the best results for our clients.
Particularly pleasing, was to know that the judges had 'mystery shopped' our offices to make an informed assessment. According to the judges, we won the award on the strength of our "visionary and hands on leadership", our "second to none training programme", and our "particularly impressive sales culture". In their final analysis, the judging panel said, "With a history dating back over 150 years, Marsh & Parsons has certainly demonstrated staying power through not one but several downturns. With the dynamism of its business model one could be forgiven for expecting a certain level of service as standard, however Marsh & Parsons simply astonish at every turn with their excellent business focus and attention to detail."
Marsh & Parsons was also recognised for being an "early adopter of social media tools", acknowledging in particular, our expert commentary and blogs, which leads me perfectly to introducing my next video blog.
