An estate agency firm in Helston has been shortlisted as a top ten letting agency in the South West.

The Estate & Letting Agent Awards, better known as the ESTAS, determines the best agents in the country by asking customers questions about the service they have received.

PDQ in Coinagehall Street will go on to compete for a coveted national award.

Chris Wood, owner of PDQ, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for the ESTAS 2012. It means so much to us as we know it’s our customers who have put us on the list.”

He said lettings manager Jenny and sales director Helen Oliver took their levels of customer service “very seriously” because they knew customers had a choice of where they could go.

“We have always been very proud of the personal service we provide and this is great way to demonstrate how good we really are.”

The winners will be announced by TV property expert Phil Spencer on April 19 at a ceremony in London.

It is the latest success this year alone for the company, which was classed as one of the best small estate agents in the UK by The Telegraph in January.
