LET-LEEDS has struck gold at the Letting Agency of the Year Awards – the fourth consecutive year they have won an award.

The Leeds-based agency was announced as winner of one of the coveted Gold Awards at a London ceremony attended by hundreds of lettings agencies. Although Let-Leeds has picked up at an award at the previous three awards ceremonies, the company was especially pleased this year with the comments from the judges.

In their submissions, the judges praised Let-Leeds’ excellent, personal service to clients, its swift resolution of issues and its thoughtful and successful approach to everything from marketing to maintenance.

Let-Leeds founder Luke Gidney said: “The Gold Award is a great honour for everyone associated with Let-Leeds.

“Having read the glowing report from the judges I think everyone who works for us can take great pride and satisfaction in the way our qualities have been recognised.

“We are in this business to provide the best possible help and advice to everyone who uses us and we are always seeking new ways to further enhance what we do for our clients.

“So it was very pleasing to see that the judges recognised our ongoing commitment to the highest possible quality of service for clients.”

The award was presented by international athlete Paula Radcliffe, along with Jon Burrough, group key account director from Zoopla Property (right), Let-Leeds director Luke Gidney (centre right) and branch manager Ash Williams (centre left), both of whom were said to be delighted to accept the Gold Award at the Letting Agent of the Year Awards 2015.

Last year, Let-Leeds picked up the Silver Award in the Single Office, Northern Category.

This year the judges stated that: “Let-Leeds has been successful in this category for a number of years, which is no mean feat given the close competition.

“The team at this agency fully deserve to jump from the silver in 2014 to the gold this year.

“The judges were pleased to see numerous proven examples of creative thinking applied to every area of operation. The directors measure every aspect of their business and improve or amend processes according to their findings.’’

Luke Gidney believes this year’s success is the sweetest for Let-Leeds.

He added: “We have always believed in the need to work in a way that is ethical and beneficial to all our clients and have never been afraid to try something different if it can help the people we work for.

“In an industry where there is so much competition, it is very gratifying to be recognised for the qualities that we have always emphasised.

I think our victory proves that our approach of always putting the client first while constantly looking to improve is the right way to proceed.’’
