TESTIMONIALS

Agents love the fact we have a Gold Accreditation which is mia’s highest accolade. We have since increased business because of the award.  Our staff love talking about it in their show-rounds because it gives them a sense of pride, which they work hard to maintain. 

Johnathan Morris, Commercial Director, No.11 Cavendish Square

The Agent Hosted Dinner was the perfect forum to engage with agents on how relationships could be improved and better engagement achieved and allowed us to gain a greater understanding of the approach from them to independent venues, partnership agreements and  other issues around growing your agency business. We have already seen the benefits of this in our business with a substantial increase in agency enquiries’

It was a pleasure to be involved and in attendance yesterday in such an inviting and warm atmosphere.  I thought the format of the event was excellent; recognising people of all levels for their contribution to their company and the industry is inspirational for all involved.
