Belvoir’s top performing franchisees unveiled

Belvoir Warrington, headed up by Gary and Amanda Pemberton, has been named Belvoir Franchise of the Year 2021.

Belvoir celebrated the efforts and achievements of its franchisees during a virtual award ceremony run via a special invitation-only Zoom meeting.

Belvoir CEO Dorian Gonsalves said: “A panel of judges at Central Office deliberated long and hard on who the winners of the Belvoir awards should be, which was no easy task. Congratulations to all of the winning franchisees, and to their teams, who should be very proud.

“I must give a special mention to Paul Wallace-Tarry from Belvoir Shrewsbury, who won the Belvoir Lifetime Achievement Award, which was sponsored by Zoopla, in recognition of all that he has achieved over the past 20 years with Belvoir.

“On the other side of the timescale, congratulations must also go to Barry and Winnie Crooks of Belvoir Macclesfield, who won the Gold Best Newcomer Award, sponsored by HSBC, after just a year with Belvoir.”

Gary and Amanda Pemberton and the team at Belvoir Warrington scooped a hat trick, winning the Belvoir Online Reputation Award, and the Gold Outstanding Customer Service Award.

“This couple are very worthy winners of the top title of Belvoir Franchise of the Year 2021, sponsored by Let Alliance, and we wish them and their team every success for the future,” said Gonsalves.

Speaking after the awards, Gary Pemberton said: “My wife Amanda and I were genuinely totally surprised and delighted to win these awards! We always hoped we would do well in the customer service awards, so to win the Online Reputation award and the Gold Outstanding Customer Service award was brilliant, but when Belvoir Warrington’s name was read out as the winner of the Belvoir Franchise of the Year award, we were absolutely ecstatic!

“We have always placed enormous importance on customer service, and we spent our time during lockdown refining the customer journey. This is very much a team effort, and when we told them the news everyone was over the moon and incredibly proud of what they have achieved. This has been a very tough time for everybody and winning the top title has been a real boost to morale.”

    Well done to Belvoir

    Refreshing to see a franchised operation where casualties amongst franchisees are a rare event Their vetting of franchisees  and support must be excellent .


    Winkworths reporting this  morning  Should imagine their franchisee in the small village of Poringland outside Norwich will give Belvoir franchisees a run for their money

  ZPL  a staggering sales  inventory of 218 this morning.10 added so far this month with 159 either SSTC  or under offer.

    HoW 71 Normally I agree with nearly everything you post but only after fact checking. In this instance, while agreeing with your sentiment, I would just mention ……. Winkworth Poringland- a v.large slice of their UO/SSTC on their own website have been long sold, eg. Church View Barn NR15. Land registry shows completion in Apr 2020 or Bungay Road NR14, completed Nov 2019. [Sentence removed as it breached posting rules]

      George ,Yes  I did  say  “ ZPL”  and  agree certainly some of those showing sold STC at Poringland already  done and dusted left on  as many agents do to max out exposure


      However even  after filleting those stragglers out  still an impressive inventory for a branch next to  a Budgens in a village of 3.900

      10 fresh fish this month when agents  are struggling to increase inventory



      Yes  some rogue elephants slip through the net as is the way of all flesh !! but like Winkies Belvoir have had very few  casualties certainly  a lot less than Ewemove !


      Winkies reporting today that revenues were broadly flat for 2020 Plenty in the Tommy   Upbeat for this year in their usual steady hand on the rudder .refreshingly understated style devoid of candy floss
