Year of the Woman!

Year of the Woman!

Lovett Recognise Leading Ladies in Business

It has been exactly one century since women in Britain won the right to vote in 1918. To mark the century many have labelled 2018 as The Year of the Woman! Although there were restrictions in the way that only women over the age of 30 who met a property qualification could vote, it later led to the Equal Franchise Act of 1928 where women finally won the same voting rights as men. Hurrah!

The estate agency industry in Britain, unlike agency in most other countries, is still dominated by men. As an industry, we are possibly among the guiltiest of all in terms of gender discrimination and it is still rife in some agencies, however we’d like to think with the current worldwide subjects and protests, women are really starting to turn the tables.

Opinion Divided?

At a time when women are climbing to the top of their fields, more than two thirds of award winning sales offices across the country are being run by women bosses according to the Property Industry Eye, compared to just over a quarter two years previously. A straw poll of industry professionals taken by Estate Agent Today last year revealed that opinion over the relevance of gender in the property and marketing industry remained mixed, with some respondents listing the feminine qualities that assisted those working in the industry and others adamant that capability was about individual approach rather than gender.

Either way, what we find most important at Lovett Estate and Letting Agents is a strong team ethic, non-judgemental or biased. We feel proud our men and women work hand in hand to the best of their abilities and all support and encourage each other whilst providing a 100% first-rate and professional service at all times.

How We Show Our Support

A particular organisation we have proudly sponsored and are excited to announce Lovett Estate and Letting Agents will be supporting again this year is the Dorset Venus Awards, a company who were formed in 2009 to recognise, reward and celebrate local working women in business.

Max De Kment with the Winner of the Lovett Estate and Lettings Award at the Venus Awards 2017

 

Their ethos like ours at Lovett Estate Agents is ‘Women play such a pivotal role in our local economies, it is crucial that hard-working business women have the spotlight shone upon them. As the Venus phenomenon rolls on across the country, more women in business will stand up and let the world know what they do, how they do it, and the challenges they face’.

We look forward to supporting this fantastic event once again and will keep you all posted on which award we will be sponsoring this year! Go Ladies!

We feel optimistic that 2018 could bring a significant step-change towards female equality and we are ready to embrace it, women across the country are more energized and resolute than ever.

 

Meet Our Women

We would love you to meet just some of our leading ladies and see for yourself why they are so greatly respected and have every confidence they could do their various job roles with their eyes closed! Lovett Estate and Letting Agents certainly feel proud we have such strong willed and skilful women and long may it continue!

Here come the girls…..

Area Manager for Lettings – Charlotte

Lovett REVIEWS

I recently bought a flat through Lovetts in Bournemouth, they were fantastic throughout the process, Clair in particular was very responsive and contacted the vendors for me with several questions, which really sped the whole process up.

Me and my husband just purchased a house through Lovetts and I can't complain at all! We did have a bit of a long journey before finally exchanging which was stressful but Clair who was our main contact towards the end made sure to always keep us in the loop and worked so hard to get everything sorted, she was lovely to deal with! Would definitely recommend 😊😊

I researched about 4 different Letting Agents. I liked the rates charged by Lovett the most, and although all the agents were lovely, I decided to go with Cailey. I was not disappointed and a lovely new tenant the next day at the full rental price agreed.

For some, selling a property is a rare experience that requires guidance and clear explanations with a prompt response to questions asked. By introducing the team members who will play key roles in the sales process it gave me more understanding of the timescales and processes, all very helpful when I am in a different country and restricted by travel regulations due to the pandemic. I felt reassured on many occasions when contacting any of the team by phone - they all understood my property and where we were in the sales process, making me feel valued. A great professional team. Thank you.

This was such a positive experience from viewing to getting the keys. They treat you like a human being and not just a number. They consider everything and are very warm and welcoming (which I've never experienced with a letting agency) Cailey in particular was fantastic she was friendly, helpful, professional and patient. She supported us throughout the whole process that could have been very stressful but she made ita breeze. Would recommend to all!! Best experience I've ever had with letting agent.

James, Abbey and the team did an amazing job for us in successfully marketing our property and then helping to complete the sale.The photos and video they put together were professional and of high quality- it generated instantly a full week of viewings.We didn’t though need the full week - it sold after the viewings on the first day, with many offers tabled by very happy prospective buyers.Lovett then recommended a conveyancing team who completed in six weeks, with James continuing to support both the buyers and us with questions and any paperwork etc.Lovett had successfully rented the property out for us for two years previously and we are delighted with their service over the years.Highly recommend them across all their branches in the area.

This is the first review in 40 years i have given regarding an estate agent.James came as agreed, took photo's and a video tour, and put the house on the market the next day as he said. We then received a call and email confirmations from Abbey regarding 8 viewings within 24 hours and have accepted an offer. (not the highest). The service and professionalism has been second to none. Fantastic service, really pro-active and extremely well escorted viewings by Abbey amazing to say the least. Thank you and can't recommend Lovett's enough.

I would highly recommend the team at Lovett - they say moving house is one of the most stressful events in your life and they are not kidding BUT Clair supported me through the whole process, she went way above my expectations. The quality and attention to detail of the sales team was excellent - I was regularly kept up to-date with what was happening on the general market but also provided with solutions to ensure I secured a buyer to a successful conclusion. I cant thank them all enough.

Amazing experience with the team, first of all James was fantastic showing me around the property. Then Clair took over to deal with the next stages, who was amazing, so responsive, friendly and just gets the job done. Couldn’t have asked for a better person to guide me through the process. Thank you to the whole team!

As a buyer of a house through Lovett I experienced a first-class service. They are always willing to go the extra mile and provide a very professional service. Clair and David were great agents throughout the process and were very helpful. I would highly recommend using Lovett International.

Very professional and proactive. When selling our house, their proposals resulted in finding a buyer very quickly and though the legal and financial process (through no fault of Lovett) was problematic and stressful at times, Lovett worked non-stop to see it through to completion. The entire team were excellent but a special mention for Clair Clarke who managed the sales progression, tirelessly chasing solicitors, brokers and buyers, and providing frequent updates to us throughout. Outstanding.

Clair Clarke has been the most outstanding ambassador for Lovett's. Throughout the most incredibly difficult process of the sale of my husband's late parents' property, Clair has been our absolute rock! She has been the epitome of professionalism, whilst becoming a friend and our source of sanity and sensibility in the face of massive adversity. Words are utterly inadequate to express our gratitude and praise for her dedication and mediation skills. We cannot recommend her highly enough! Thank you Clair and your team at Lovett International, Bournemouth.

I am selling two flats and at all times through quite a difficult situation they have been extremely professional. They constantly kept me updated with frequent phone calls and helped me with any questions I have needed answered. These has not been a straightforward sell as we have had probate to go through and we don't live in the area. I would certainly recommend them.
