WeLocate voted the best estate agent in the North West.


WeLocate, the Bury-based Estate Agency, received the ‘Best in County’ title for Greater Manchester & Cheshire at the prestigious ESTAS 2019. The award was announced by Phil Spencer, the TV property expert at a lavish luncheon & ceremony at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane London attended by 1,000 of the UK’s top property professionals.

The awards, celebrating their 16th year determine the best estate and letting agents in the UK based purely on feedback from customers who are asked a series of questions about the service they have received from their agent. Over 45,000 surveys were completed by customers during the competition.

Phil Spencer, who has hosted the ESTAS every year since their inception in 2003 said “The ESTAS encapsulates what your typical agent is trying to do, which is to provide honest, transparent service for their clients. These awards are special because shortlisted and winning firms are selected purely on the service they deliver. Real feedback from real customers experiencing real service, I don’t think there can be a greater honour in the industry than to receive an award based on that mantra.”

It is the second time in three years that the company has won at the awards, an achievement that has made Managing Director, David Warburton very proud, “We are thrilled to be recognised at the ESTAS again. We won silver last year so to go all the way and win the top award this year is something special. We only set the business up in 2016 with the aim being to improve estate agency. We planned to do this by helping people move on to the next chapter of their lives while striving to get the best possible price for their home. Moving house is often described as one of the most stressful activities people go through, but it doesn’t have to be. We look to structure things in such a way that the customer finds the process more organised and enjoyable rather than chaotic. Hopefully, this award demonstrates that we are succeeding as it is voted for by customers who put their faith in us to deliver a great result, and we are hugely grateful to everyone who took the time to
