Heidi Mercer and her team in the Ashington branch of leading estate agents, Cubitt & West – part of the Arun Estates Group which has 114 offices right across the South East - have a lot to celebrate after scooping a top title at the Group’s annual awards ceremony recently.
Beating off stiff competition from the entire Arun network, which stretches from Essex all the way to the Isle of Wight, Cubitt & West’s Ashington office – made up of Manager Heidi Mercer, Marketing Consultant Richard Simpson, Senior Mortgage Advisor Andy Hodson and administrator Caroline Tobutt – was named Top Village Office for the whole of Arun. The award was presented amid enthusiastic applause from all 660 Group staff attending the record-breaking gala event, held at the Effingham Park Hotel near Gatwick.
Afterwards, a delighted Heidi - who has lived in the village for a number of years and somehow successfully juggles managing the office with raising a young family - said: “After a difficult year in 2012, for us to win this award is a fantastic tribute to all the hard work that every single member of the team put in over the last 12 months. 2013 turned out to be an incredible year here in Ashington, and we are looking forward to doing even better in 2014!”
Congratulating Heidi and her team on their achievement, Senior Operations Director Steve Atterbury added: “At the start of last year, Cubitt & West launched a major company-wide initiative to drive up service standards across the board, with the aim of clearly setting ourselves apart from the crowd. This has proved to be hugely successful, and nowhere more so that in Ashington. Cubitt & West prides itself on employing the best people in the business - and this award proves that Heidi, Richard, Andy and Caroline are some of the very best of the best.”
Add in the fact that if you choose their ‘Sale by Tender’ option, Heidi and her team will undertake to sell your home for as little as £150 plus VAT, and it’s an open and shut case for using Cubitt & West in Ashington!
