Please help us keep our New Year resolution

Written on 4 January 2016 by Alistair Boscawen in Company Updates

Happy New Year. Here at Best Gapp, we enter 2016 confident that the next 12 months are going to be as good – if not better – than 2015. 

 Best Gapp’s New Year resolution is to gain one new testimonial each and every month of 2016. But we can only do this with your help

Confidence drives the property market in prime central London and that is a commodity the UK capital has in abundance.

Highly-respected consultancy firm Oxford Economics forecasts that London’s economy will grow by an average of 2.9% a year between now and 2030, ahead of the 2.6% growth per year predicted for New York.

All the time London continues to be a global business leader and the national economy remains in good health, property in the capital will attract the interest of investors from the UK and beyond.

The fact that demand for luxury property in central London far outstrips its supply means we are confident that its value will continue to rise over the next 12 months.

At Best Gapp, our focus for the past 130-plus years has been on selling and renting luxury homes in some of London’s most exclusive areas, including Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Pimlico, South Kensington, Mayfair and Westminster.

Leasehold enfranchisement

As well as property sales and lettings, we offer a whole range of other services to make sure that we meet your needs both now and in the future. These include valuations, structural surveys, property management and leasehold enfranchisement – the process owners must go through to complete a freehold purchase or extension.

We are committed to continue delivering unparalleled levels of service while helping make our clients’ property aspirations come true.

We know how much Best Gapp’s long list of satisfied clients appreciate our efforts because they frequently pass on their thanks for helping them to maximise the value of their property or the reach of their budget.

Our New Year resolution, therefore, is to ask you to put this praise in writing. This will allow us to build a collection of testimonials that demonstrate our professionalism and expertise to new and existing clients.

The key appeal of testimonials, both for us and you, is that they are a genuine reflection of real-world experiences. If you’re looking for a long-established Belgravia estate agent with in-depth knowledge of the local property market, the chances are you’d appreciate a personal recommendation.

Testimonials are like word-of-mouth marketing in today’s digital marketplace. They are a great way to establish yourself as a business that new and existing customers can trust, even before they meet you.

We want to receive at least one new testimonial each month. We’re not looking for War and Peace-style epics, just a thank-you email explaining how Best Gapp has helped you.

The next time one of the hard-working members of our team leaves you appreciating their efforts, please, please, please drop them a quick email praising them. But don’t forget that the best way to recommend an estate agent is to explain how they helped you buy, let, sell or rent a property.

If your New Year resolution is to sell or let a property in Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Pimlico, South Kensington, Mayfair and Westminster, then please get in touch with Best Gapp.
