Triple success for Livingroom

THERE was a triple success for estate agents Livingroom last night in the new-look business awards at the Guernsey Awards for Achievement.
The business claimed the new BWCI Innovation Award and the inaugural Healthspan Excellence in Marketing prize before completing the set with the Commerce and Employment Business of the Year trophy.
‘I cannot believe it – I’m gobsmacked,’ said director Simon Torode, who founded the company in 2006, and relaunched it last January.
He said that the relaunch saw a change of focus away from only dealing with the higher end of the market to embrace all properties, with a mix of innovation and its own bespoke approach to marketing, particularly through the company website. It had paid off, with a claimed 25% market share by value of Guernsey property sales in 2012.
