Llanelli’s Matthew Whitehead run his first half marathon in aid of a fellow staff member:

Matthew Whitehead ran the Llanelli half marathon in aid of a sick colleague at Dawsons

Our very own Matthew Whitehead decided to take up running in 2018 and signed himself up for the Llanelli half marathon, which is a tough goal for a regular runner let alone a beginner.

With this in mind, Matthew wanted to run to raise funds for something worthwhile.  Last year Sam James of our Mumbles lettings office was diagnosed with breast cancer only weeks after discovering she was pregnant with her first child.  As a company we decided to give Sam the financial support she would need to be able to recover and enjoy her maternity alongside her partner Luke by fundraising as much as possible. Now baby Maiya is here and is a beautiful, healthy little lady, and Sam herself is also doing so well with her treatments and remaining positive.  As Sam’s recovery is not over yet we are still looking to raise what we can for her with further fundraisers planned through the year.  If you would like to donate or help fundraise please let us know.

Keeping learning local but global, introducing Dawsons Training Wales:

landlord training wales by Dawsons Property

As most of us in the property industry will know, a regulation was introduced in Wales which applies to all landlords and agents of private residential property. The regulations became enforceable by Rent Smart Wales (RSW) in November 2016, requiring landlords and agents to comply with the new legislation, licensing those who deal with letting and management activities of properties within the private rented sector throughout Wales.

To obtain a license both landlords and agents have to undergo training from a Rent Smart Wales (RSW) approved trainer.  This training can be classroom or online based.  As a local agency discovered when looking to train new staff, the online course is extremely accessible and suited to an agents working environment, as part of this busy fast moving life we all lead.

With the increase in purchases online in recent years and the now daily use of PayPal for most, the need for a safe, quick and easy transaction at any time of day or night, outside of the usual business hours has become the norm.

There are many bonuses to completing an online training course, with the main benefit being the opportunity to complete the course from any part of the world in your own time, at your own pace.  With online courses being easily accessible to all with the click of a button, it makes sense to learn at your leisure.

With this in mind Dawsons Training Wales was born in January 2019.  Having acquired a former training provider (A19), Dawsons Training Wales has been set up to ensure the ease of online training for landlords and agents remained available from a local business provider.

The learning portal, designed by Picselli a Swansea based web design company, with the assistance and approval of RSW is one of the most up to date approved online course’s available.  At an affordable, and competitive cost for both landlords and agents to complete the course, Dawsons Training Wales has become a success since its birth.

With an easy-to-access website, office hours helpline and around the clock email response, Dawsons Training Wales is very much the ideal training tool for all those requiring an RSW license.

Dawsons joined The Relocation Agent Network in marking their 25th anniversary at the National Conference and Exhibition, and celebrated their status as Swansea’s Local Expert. The event was held on 23 November 2018 at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel.

Celebrating its 25th National Conference and Exhibition, the event culminated in a glittering black-tie Awards Dinner, hosted by well-known comedian and television presenter, Katherine Ryan.

Relocation Agent Network is a national network of selected estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales, who handpicked Dawsons to be the Local Expert in Swansea, based on strict criteria such as quality of service, local knowledge, business innovation and professionalism.

Helping Our Customers

Through its affiliation to Cartus, the premier provider of relocation services, Relocation Agent Network members help Cartus assist relocating families, offering Dawsons customers an additional channel of buyer when selling their property. In addition, members also help their customers through their ‘Referral Network’, which allows Dawsons to help people who are looking to move out of the local area by referring them to a Relocation Agent in the location they are moving to.

Relocation Agent Network Managing Director, Richard Tucker said, “We are delighted to have welcomed each of our Relocation Agent Network members, including Dawsons to this year’s 25th National Conference and Exhibition. As a selected member of the Network, in our opinion, they are the experts for customers buying and selling in Swansea.”

Estate agent hosts coffee morning to raise money for cancer charity

Generous staff at Dawsons Estate Agents raised £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support from a special coffee morning and cake sale.

The event at their branch in Walter Road was inundated with visitors from surrounding offices and members of the public.

“We organised it because I don’t think there is one member of staff here who has not been affected by cancer in some way or another,” said Branch Manager Nicola Fulford.

“All the cakes, cup cakes and sponges were donated by staff and friends. So it’s a big thank you to them that they made the morning possible.”

Added Nicola: “We were delighted by the generosity of everyone including those passers by who just came in off the street. Even our window cleaner came in for a coffee and a cake!”

Dawsons Senior Partner Chris Hope: “A big thank you should go out to Nicola and her staff for organising such a successful event and for such a great cause.”
