A LETTING agency in Huddersfield has won two awards.

Martin & Co at St Peter’s Street in the town centre was shortlisted for two awards at the company’s annual conference.

The office, headed by franchise owners William Taylor and Alex Barron, scooped the title for Best Established Business and was also a finalist in the category for Best Business for Growth in the awards presented in Northamptonshire.

The trophies were presented to Helen Bracewell, of the Huddersfield office, by Martin & Co managing director Ian Wilson.

Mr Wilson said that Mr Taylor and Mr Barron had achieved superb results in developing their business year-on-year and had “instantly embraced everything that Martin & Co stands for – integrity, professionalism and straight-talking, good advice”.

He said: “Landlords and tenants alike clearly know where they stand and I have been really impressed with the positive feedback I have received”.

Said Mr Taylor: “Being recognised twice is a real honour and a tribute to the hard work, dedication and passion of our staff.

“It also follows close on the heels of Martin & Co winning the Best Large Letting Chain category at the ESTAS this year – having won gold in 2009 and 2012 and silver in 2010 and 2011).”

Said Mr Barron: “Such success can only help our business further and give much needed confidence to our clients in this largely unregulated industry in which the right choice of letting agency is of paramount importance.”
