FOLLOWING an outstanding performance last year, the Basingstoke branch of estate agency Connells is delighted to announce it was one of the company’s top branches in 2014. The accolade has been attributed to the local team’s skill, hard work and outstanding levels of customer service and saw them beat off over 100 other Connells offices based around the UK to take the award.

Branch partner Lee Lloyd said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be one of Connells’ top performing branches.

“The entire team is dedicated to helping local home buyers, sellers, investors, tenants and landlords fulfil their property objectives and we work very hard to deliver excellent customer service.

“Last year was another busy year as local home buyers became more confident on the back of stamp duty changes, low interest rates and the Help to Buy scheme.

“We anticipate that 2015 will be even busier and we are ready to help even more customers move home.”

With demand for properties increasing further in 2015 so far, Connells is urging anyone who has been thinking of selling to get in touch.

Lee said demand is currently dramatically outweighing supply, so sellers have an opportunity to capitalise on buyer interest and confidence.
