Group Shot with Phil SpencerMartin & Co have been shortlisted for the ‘Best Large Chain’ at this year’s Estate & Letting Agent Awards (ESTAS). This is the sixth year in a row that they have been shortlisted for the award. Previously, Martin & Co earned Gold in 2009, Silver in 2010, Silver in 2011, gold in 2012 and Silver in 2013 and they’re hoping to continue their reign this year.

Martin & Co is one of the only UK property agency franchises that offer lettings and estate agency with UK wide recognition. With a network of just under 200 franchise offices, they are the largest property franchise business in the UK.

“This award is voted for by landlords so it means a lot to us. We pride ourselves on our customer service and always strive to be the best in our industry. Being shortlisted for this award is testimony to the hard work our franchise owners put into their offices throughout the year. To be rated highly by our customers is extremely important to us and being shortlisted for this award again shows that our hard work and dedication is really paying off,” explains Ian Wilson, Chief Executive of Martin & Co.

The ESTAS are specifically designed to help agencies market themselves in their region. They also help agents to focus on, and be recognised for, the standard of customer service they provide to their clients.

Not only have Martin & Co been nominated for this award but 11 of their franchise owners’ offices have also been shortlisted in the regional categories which shows how highly regarded Martin & Co is across the UK.

“We’re extremely proud of our franchise owners who have been shortlisted in their regions. Each of them make their business their own, but they remain true to the fundamental business plan and our commitment to providing the best customer service. These awards give them the recognition they deserve and make their hard work worthwhile!” adds Ian.

With strong high street and online presence, the secret of our franchise owners’ success is that they can provide local property knowledge whilst being backed by a national brand. It’s no wonder Martin & Co has been recognised for its award-winning service by its clients.
