Williams and Donovan have been recognised as one of the top performing estate agents in the Benfleet and Canvey areas by GetAgent.


How did we achieve the Top Performer Award?


Get Agent assesses local Estate Agents in the area against three core performance metrics


1.         Percentage of the original asking price achieved

2.         Average sale time from when a property is listed to when it’s sold

3.         The number of properties an estate agent has listed in the past 6 months


This property data is collated directly from the Land Registry, Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket.

Based on our performance in 2021 we’ve won the top performer award in both SS7 and SS8 postcodes and are delighted to be given this recognition from GetAgent.

As a company, Williams and Donovan have won various over the years, including several ESTAS Awards and the recognition as one of the top estate agencies in the UK by the Best Estate Agent Guide in 2020. 

These awards serve to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to exceptional client service and results, and we’d like to extend a big thank you to all our customers and the local community for their continued support.

About GetAgent’s Top Performer Awards

GetAgent is an estate agent comparison website that allows homeowners to compare estate agents based on their past performance in the area where they operate.

GetAgent's proprietary algorithm combines these above 3 performance metrics to determine the top performing agents in these areas, with the average asking price achieved being the most heavily weighted factor.

If an estate agent is within the top 20% of performers at a particular postcode, they then qualify as Top Performers in the area.

So on the basis of these metrics, Williams and Donovan have been identified as one of the Top Performers in SS7 and SS8. This award is based solely on our exceptional sales performance over the last year.
