Dawsons supporting local communities
We pride ourselves in not just having local offices, but our staff within those branches being part of the community in which they are placed. As a company, we support many different charities, both local and national, local schools, social and sports clubs, as well as local businesses and events.
Our community contributions in 2018 were by far one of our busiest years to date. To name but a few, we were involved in: sponsoring the Wales Airshow, Burry Port raft race, DJM Charitable trust, Macmillan, Save the Children, Swansea City DSA, Mr X, Trussell Trust, Cariad defib, friends of Mumbles parks, alongside many local primary school fetes, local litter picks, and many more.
We proudly raised a grand total of £14,106.00 in 2018 alone, for which we are extremely thankful to all our staff who got involved. Whilst day to day we are an award-winning estate agent, we are also team Dawsons supporting in any which way we can.
Dawsons placed in top 0.1% of agents in the UK after winning gold and silver. Our Sales & Lettings teams are celebrating their achievements after winning both gold and silver in the Estate Agents Awards (EA Masters) in October 2018 placing us within the top 0.1% of estate agents throughout the UK.
Ricky Purdy, our lettings director commented: “The judging of this prestigious accolade takes place over a 12 month period, involves in-depth research, many statistics and mystery shops”
Jo Summerfield Talbot, our sales director commented: “These awards are attributed to the sheer hard work and outstanding customer service all our team members display by always going that extra mile helping and supporting our clients through their journey”
Take a look as you drive by our local offices this month and see all our windows which are now splashed with awards and celebration.
Top Tips: Declutter
Declutter those cupboards and drawers, tidy up and remove excess items that might give the impression of cluttering. You may want to remove any large bits of furniture (such as a clunky wardrobe) in order to make a room look bigger. Check out our ‘declutter blog’ here.
“2018 was an amazing year for Dawsons Auction Department! Selling 90% of everything that we took to the room. Proving that buying and selling via auction is the most secure method of sale, the national average of selling via private treaty is only 65%.
A misconception is that auction properties are in disrepair or requires work, last year we found that its the vendors circumstances that determine whether a property is to be sold at auction not the finish of the property e.g. shorter timescales, security of sale, speed of sale and ability to sell with discretion in certain situations debt, separation, emigration, death.
Going into the first auction of 2019 we have very diverse stock located all across Swansea (which includes the property pictured in Alltiago Road, Pontarddulais). Come down to the Swansea Marriott Hotel on the 27th of February and start your investment with us. If you want a free valuation on any property/land that you want to sell please give Dawsons Auction a call 01792 478904.”
