World Cup Dream is Over – But What a Ride!

Elizabeth Davenport attended Kenilworth School’s career’s fair at Castle Sixth Form last Tuesday. World Cup fever was in the air and the team at Elizabeth Davenport decided to have a bit of fun and run a World Cup competition for the students. The prize at stake was a brand-new England home shirt, all the students had to do was answer one simple  question…IMG_4622

The question was; how many properties were currently available to buy in Kenilworth?

More than 30 students took part with guesses ranging from 105 to 4,438!

The winning guess was made by lucky student Louis Perry who guessed 178 which was only 8 properties away from the actual figure of 186!*

Nick Luntley, a Director & Branch Manager at Elizabeth Davenport, who was also a former pupil of Kenilworth School said “we were delighted to meet so many keen and enthusiastic students and only hope we were able to offer some genuine insight into how small business and the property industry works. It was a slightly surreal experience for me as the last time I was in this hall I was sitting my final A-level exam nearly 14 years ago! The England shirt competition was just a bit of fun that hopefully gave students a small incentive to come and speak with us!”

“It’s a shame the football didn’t quite work out how we all wanted but I’m sure Louis will still be wearing his new shirt with pride. I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Marie Brennan at Kenilworth School who organised a fantastic day for all the students”.

Elizabeth Davenport regularly support students and school leavers by offering work experience places throughout the year. If this is something that would be of interest please email either Nick (nick@elizabethdavenport.co.uk) or Mark (mark@elizabethdavenport.co.uk).

BPA-Vinyls-OL-AiCC-10-Coventry_BPA_540pxWhen you have an eight week period in any business you expect to have a volume of enquiries that, despite dealing with professionally, do  not lead to genuine fee earning business. Whether fee earning or not every enquiry made about any property and many that are made  to simply to register interest must always be dealt with as courteously and promptly as possible.

The last eight weeks have seen this service rewarded with the team at Elizabeth Davenport earning us our own Gold Medal from the  British Property Awards! With this success we’ve now been entered into the Regional and National Event so if you don’t read a blog about  them then clearly we’ve still got more work to do!

So, for speed of answering calls, email enquiries, answerphone call backs, integrity of reviews, in fact with a judging criteria of 25 separate  factors, this Coventry award really is quite special.

Massive credit to all of our colleagues, Chris, Jan, Jo, Kate, Lauren, Nicki and Shelina for being so personable and efficient in each and  every way. Having fun, enjoying your job and generally caring about what you do make the Monday blues a thing of the past. It really is a  pleasure to go to work! This Award is proof that Red tape and over zealous Management are simply out of fashion and not what it takes to  win a Gold Medal in 2016!

Now we’ve got to retain it!
