What a wonderful way to start 2016! All of us At Debbie Fortune Estate Agents are so proud to look after the sale and rental of property in Congresbury, this wonderful and vibrant village which Debbie also calls home, having lived there since 1997 . It's 800 random acts of kindness have contributed to a reputation that has even spread to the national press (see today's Times). It is now surely the kindest village around!

Well done to Mr & Mrs Ashley who guessed the correct number of balloons in Wallace's last appearance of the year at the Wrington Dickensian Fair, where we raised £50 for the village Mini Bus. The Ashleys bought a house in the village from us last year and were delighted to be the lucky winners! Mr Ashley is pictured with Debbie.

What a fabulous evening we had last week at Weston College's Business Awards 2015 - especially as we won 6 awards!

This annual Awards evening provides an important opportunity for the College to recognise and honour some of the outstanding work carried out by employers and the achievements of their apprentices. The winners were selected by a panel of judges from Weston College and the business world with the awards being presented at a Gala evening at Cadbury Double Tree Hilt...on by TV and radio presenter, Nicki Chapman.


Debbie said, “We were delighted to be recognised at this prestigious awards event and were, in fact, winners 6 times over, not only winning Employer of the Year but our Negotiator Becky Millard won Apprentice of the Year! Scott Higgins, based in our Chew Magna office, won Intermediate Professional Services Learner of the Year and I was given the Apprenticeship Ambassador Award. A fantastic result for both Becky and Scott and for the wonderful teams at both our offices.”


She adds, “Weston College is the only further education college in the UK to be awarded ‘Outstanding’ status by Ofsted, and.... it is on our doorstep! We should be very proud of its success and the tremendous service it provides to our young people.”

Debbie was interviewed recently for The Times which appeared in July 17th's Bricks and Mortar supplement, where the Chew Valley area was voted one of the top 20 family friendly villages in the UK!

Susan Ferris from Kingswood, Bristol, was one of thousands of people who visited the Above & Beyond marquee at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta this month. Like so many others, she generously donated to this worthy casue and was delighted to discover that she was the lucky winner in the ‘Guess the Balloons’ competition in Wallace the vintage car, kindly provided by Debbie Fortune Estate Agents. She is pictured with her grandson, Kyron, aged 4, (who helped Nanny guess the right number!) receiving her Kindle from Debbie Fortune, with Lorna Clarke of Above & Beyond.

Lorna said she and Debbie were amongst the many visitors and volunteers who helped them raise a final staggering total of £16,000 over the course of the weekend. A big thank you to everyone for their generosity!

Just like buses, two come along at the same time! After our success in the Weston College Business Awards where we won 6 awards, we've now been named finalists in this year's Business Leaders Awards, in not one, but two categories. We're up against very stiff competition, with some inspiring success stories, so feel really privileged to have reached the finals. Debbie is pictured with staff at the Wrington office.

Mr & Mrs Dando who bought in West Harptree through our Chew Magna office, said, "When and if we move again we will definitely use Debbie Fortune Estate Agents to sell based on our experience as buyers. We have moved quite a lot over the past few years and we have both been genuinely impressed and happy with all aspects of your service - especially Joanna Tiley's (pictured) help and guidance, she was very understanding..., always kind and a lot more helpful than our own agent."
Mr & Mrs D who sold in Weston-Super-Mare, through our Wrington office, said, "We found everyone very helpful, you gave us regular feedback and felt supported by the whole team. You all made our sale a positive and pleasant experience. Moving house is one of the most stressful life events we engage in and we felt you helped to ease that stress. The enthusiasm for our house was very encouraging...many thanks for your all your help and finding us a buyer so quickly - we shall be and (have been) recommending your services."

More success to report!
We've just heard that we are on the shortlist for The Negotiator awards 2015, in two categories ... South West Estate Agency of the Year AND Community Champion of the Year (UK) - a wonderful honour on top of our success at the Weston College business awards where we won 6 awards, and our places on two shortlists in the South West Business Leaders awards.
Fingers crossed for 24th September when the winners will be announced at the Business Leaders awards, and for 3 November where The Negotiator national awards take place in London.
