Having been shortlisted for the Best Agents for First Time Buyers, Belvoir Bromley was highly commended in its category at this year’s 2018 First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards, held at The Waldorf Hilton Hotel, London. The Best Agent for First Time Buyers award is for an estate agent that has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help first time homebuyers.
Belvoir Bromley supports first time buyers through a number of ways including building relationships with local developers, mortgage brokers, solicitors and removal firms; helping to ease the process for those buying for the first time. The team are also working on a scheme to help first timers raise a deposit.
Business owners Darren O’Reilly and Chantell Harris, said: “It’s great to have been recognised as Highly Commended by the readers of First Time Buyers Magazine. We are over the moon to come Highly Commended in our category out of over 16,500 agents in the UK!”
Lynda Clark, editor of First Time Buyer Magazine: “The judges were clearly impressed with the great lengths that Belvoir Bromley goes to in order to support entry level homebuyers. First time buyers are the lifeblood of the property market and so it is essential to ensure that the homebuying process is explained clearly and that support is there for those who need it. Many congratulations to Belvoir Bromley for this fantastic win!”
Darren and Chantell have been local landlords for over 20 years and have a refreshingly open and honest approach to the property world, saying “It should be an enjoyable experience renting, selling or moving home, not a chore or a stress.”
The pair hold regular workshops to help demystify the property world. The family-run business was opened in Beckenham by Darren and Chantell just 11 months ago and the pair have already firmly established themselves in the local community, championing good causes like Barney & Echo Caught In The Web, dealing with the issues of Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying for local schools.
“It’s a marvellous thing running a local business as we can support the local community in a way we couldn’t as individuals.” said Chantell.
