Staff in the Havant 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 Havant office – made up of Senior Branch Manager Craig Hopes, Branch Manager James Ash, Senior Marketing Consultant Thea Wilson, Marketing Consultant Kate McNichol, Trainee Negotiator Danny Eason and Branch Administrator Emma Hayward – was named Top 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 Craig said: “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 for Cubitt & West here in Havant, and we are looking forward to doing even better in 2014!”
Congratulating Craig and his team on their achievement, Operations Director Neil Piper 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 Havant. Cubitt & West prides itself on employing the best people in the business - and this award proves that Craig, James, Thea, Kate, Danny and Emma are some of the very best of the best!”
