Move’m have recently updated their processes and one of the largest features they’ve added is an algorithm to score and rank estate agents based on different categories such as features, response times, houses and ultimately, users’ feedback.
Bournecoast came in second, only beaten to the top by the University’s own accommodation department.
Move’m said: “The information we receive gives us an unprecedented amount of information.
“We are asked on a daily basis who the best estate agents are and, for the first time ever, we are able to answer that question.”
Des Simmons, Managing Director of Bournecoast commented: “It makes me very proud that we are being ranked so highly and is recognition of the quality of the fully furnished properties we can offer students for the academic year from September and the service we offer the students whilst they are staying in the properties.
“We were alerted to our success from our Bournecoast twitter account saying - @bournecoast (https://twitter.com/
He added, “Being a family-run business our ambition, as a company and individually, is to make sure we are proud of where we work and this poll shows it has a very positive result for our clients. All our staff should be exceptionally proud of themselves. I would personally like to thank the Bournecoast Lettings Team for putting such a big smile on my face today!
