Vail Williams takes home award for client service at South Coast Property Awards

July 19, 2017

Property advisers, Vail Williams LLP, has been hailed for its client service after winning the best client service award at the South Coast Property Awards, recently (13th July).

The evening, which comprised of a charity gala dinner and awards ceremony hosted by Jeremy Vine, brought together over 360 of the region’s finest property professionals at the Ageas Bowl Hilton, Southampton.

Vail Williams, which has eight offices across the UK, including Southampton and Portsmouth, was nominated for the Commercial Property Consultancy Best Client Service award by client, Selwood Group Limited – the UK’s top ranked pump hiring company.

Commenting on the nomination, Chris Garrett, CEO at Selwood Group, said: “We were pleased to nominate Vail Williams. Having worked with the firm for over two years now, we have been impressed at their ability to turn strong working relationships into true partnerships. They have become a trusted supplier of choice for us as a result.”

Speaking of the win, which is the same as Vail Williams won in the Thames Valley last year, Regional Managing Partner for the Solent, Mike Greenwood, said: “We are delighted to once again be rewarded for our client service. The way that we work is incredibly important to us. It’s not just about being able to take a client’s brief and ensure it is correctly managed, it’s about the whole experience our clients have with the Vail Williams brand.

“It’s one thing to be good at what you do, but it’s another to do it with energy and enthusiasm, and that is what we all strive for. It not only makes working with our clients a pleasure, it also helps to create a rewarding, supportive and enjoyable workplace too.”

Vail Williams also had a keen interest in another of the 15 awards given out that evening – Workplace Environment of the Year – where it had nominated client, The University of Southampton Science Park (USSP).

The firm acts as asset and facilities manager for USSP, so was delighted when it went on to win the award for best workplace environment.

“We are thrilled for The University of Southampton Science Park – a well deserved win by an innovative organisation which has not only created an incredibly exciting workplace, but a successful business too.

“It was an excellent evening, and we would like to thank the Business Magazine for organising the awards, which raised over £3,000 for The Ranbow Centre in Fareham,” concluded Greenwood.
