Mundys Finds Strength from Within
Award-winning estate agency Mundys in Lincoln has strengthened its senior management team by making two of its most committed and talented staff members associates.
Chris Laughton (30) and Hymie Bentley (27) (pictured left) have worked at Mundys for a combined total of 12 years and in that time they have progressed through the ranks.
Chris started working for the firm as an accompanied viewer in 2003 before being promoted to negotiator, senior negotiator and then valuer in 2009. He is currently studying for a Diploma in Residential Estate Agency (DipREA) and has taken over the management of the sales team while Residential Sales Manager Vicki Wilkinson is on maternity leave.
Hymie started as a residential sales negotiator before becoming Lettings Director where he has overseen key service standard improvements and a significant growth in business.
After undertaking studies through the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors over recent years, he will shortly qualify as a Chartered Surveyor. He said: “I’ve really enjoyed working with people on a day-to-day basis during the most important transaction of their lives and it’s also been great to see the Lettings Department grow so significantly.”
Senior Partner Philip Barnatt said: “Becoming an associate is a fantastic achievement and the position is reserved for employees who have been with Mundys for some time and have greatly contributed to the success of the company.
“It’s a reward for people who have the Mundys ethos at heart, have used their initiative to come up with new ideas and are wholly committed to the further growth and positive enhancement of the business.
“Hymie for example has taken on responsibility for the running of our Lettings Department and managed to improve our already high standards of customer service while Chris has been invaluable in helping Mundys keep up to date with new IT.
“He has made huge strides in the positive use of computer and telephone technology, including making effective use of social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as helping to drive forward the Residential Sales Department.”
Following this well deserved achievement, the partners are sure that Chris and Hymie will provide further enhancement to the Mundys management team and continued development.
Mundys was named the Best Estate Agency in Lincolnshire for the second year running after winning five stars in the prestigious Daily Mail UK Property Awards in October 2009.
Mundys Residential Lettings Department has been ranked as the third-best letting agents in the East Midlands region at the recent UK Estate Agent and Letting Agent of the Year Awards 2010
