AN estate agent from Timperley is celebrating after being awarded Gascoigne Halman’s Negotiator of the Year Award.

Dawn Betney works at the Altrincham branch of Gascoigne Halman, one of 18 offices located in Cheshire and South Manchester.

The Negotiator of the Year award is given to a Gascoigne Halman employee who continually goes above and beyond their daily duties in providing the highest service to their customers.

Adam Ravenscroft, manager of the Altrincham branch of Gascoigne Halman, said: “We are delighted that Dawn has been named Negotiator of the Year 2017.

"Dawn started working for Gascoigne Halman SIX years ago as a part time administrator and has only gone full time this year, so this is just a fantastic achievement for her.”

Adam continued, “Dawn is driven by the competition and has really strived to be top of the leader board. I am really proud of the hard work she has put in this year and the number of customers she has helped in turn. She currently lives locally, and I believe her expertise and knowledge of the area has been instrumental to her success.”

John Halman, managing director of Gascoigne Halman, said, “I would like to congratulate Dawn on her Negotiator of the Year award win. We strive to recognise the high calibre of staff we employ and I know Dawn works very hard in her role. It’s a fantastic accolade for Dawn and we all wish her continued success.”
