Each week we will provide a more detailed profile of one of the businesses within the BID area. This week we look at local estate Agents, Dafydd Hardy who are celebrating 25 years of business.
Dafydd Hardy and Richard Thomas this week are celebrating 25 years in business. Two local boys with a passion for property, customer service and the latest technology have come a long way and today they employ over 60 local staff, across 6 sites with 10 different departments – a long way from two qualified surveyors sat in an empty office.
Over these years, the market has shifted significantly, properties, technology and the market have moved at an incredible pace. Despite these market pressures, the owners have maintained their core values, excellent customer service, a happy and dedicated staff team and an active contributor to the community.
The Business continues to go from strength to strength and have been voted the best Sales, Lettings and Overall Agent in Wales last year by their customers. Their product offering has continued to grow and now and aside from being a traditional estate agent, the business also encompasses a lettings agency, commercial properties, run Auction House North Wales, and have a successful student accommodation letting service.
Despite the range of services, one of the most important values of the businesses owners is their place and contribution to the communities in which they operate. Having offices in Bangor, Caernarfon, Holyhead, Llangefni, Menai Bridge and Pen Llyn means that there are plenty of community projects and groups to be part off. From sports to the arts, beach cleans and raft races, there is nothing the staff like more than lending their time, energy and enthusiasm to a host of different charities and events.
Dafydd Hardy are also on a mission to raise the awareness of North Wales as great destination to live and work. They regularly promote a range of waterside properties at the Southampton International Boat Show, and Dafydd has made numerous TV appearances from Homes Under the Hammer to the S4C series 'Ar Werth', all helping promote the region to a wider audience.
So, as the corks pop to celebrate a quarter of a century of helping people find their perfect home, we wish all the staff at Dafydd Hardy all the best for another successful 25 years ahead.
