BARNSTAPLE -based estate agents Webbers, established back in 1924, have once again been nominated in this year's Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) national awards in recognition of excellence in customer service in estate agency.There are no fewer than six Webbers' offices nominated out of 10 in the South West region -Torrington and South Molton in North Devon; Taunton and Dulverton in Somerset; and Launceston and Newquay in Cornwall.Given the large number of offices nominated, it also means that Webbers will, again, be in line to receive at the very least a Silver Award as Best Group of Estate Agents in the UK. Managing Director Malcolm Prescott said: "Quality industry awards are important. Not only does it recognise the hard work and effort that our staff put into their jobs and the quality customer service, but it is a clear endorsement to any potential customer that Webbers are serious about delivering high standards of customer service in a business that often receives negative press. "We are particularly pleased that we have two offices from each county represented in the awards. This is now the third year in a row that we have had a number of offices in line for the top West Country prize."The awards lunch will be held in London on April 8 where the presenter will be the well known TV property commentator, Phil Spencer. Webbers chairman, Graham Harrison, said: "The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is the best known professional body within our industry and as a member of the Institution for many years it makes me extremely proud to see just how well our local offices are performing in what continues to be a challenging market.
