You may have seen the banner at the bottom of our emails, but to everyone who hasn’t seen it, we wanted to wish all of our clients a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Bundy and Bond.
Instead of sending Christmas cards this year, we decided to donate to a charity. We have adopted a donkey from the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth (a donkey seemed fitting as it’s Christmas). They are an amazing charity who do loads of work for the welfare of donkeys around the world and if you’re in Devon, they have a lovely sanctuary you can visit (and you can say hello to Timothy, our adopted donkey).
If you would like to adopt your own donkey, you can visit their website - www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk
It’s been a very busy year again for Bundy and Bond with lots of things happening. In July, we won Bronze for Chipping Sodbury at the British Property Awards and then the following month we won Silver in the Regional awards. The award covered the entire South Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire area, so it was a huge achievement for us to win it, especially as the award was based on customer service.
We have even more exciting news, but we can’t share it just yet. Although if you have called Bundy and Bond recently, you may have noticed the phone asks you to press 1 for Sales or 2 for Lettings (that might be a little hint).
The office will be open as normal next week, right up until Saturday 23rd December. Our opening times from 25th December are as follows:
Monday 25th December (Christmas Day) – closed
Tuesday 26th December (Boxing Day) – closed
Wednesday 27th December – 10.00am – 4.00pm
Thursday 28th December – 10.00am – 4.00pm
Friday 29th December – 10.00am – 4.00pm
Saturday 30th December – 10.00am – 4.00pm
Monday 1st January 2018 (New Year’s Day) – closed
Tuesday 2nd January 2018 – open as normal
We hope you all have a lovely Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

We have been a bit neglectful of our blog in the office for the last 6 months or so, but we have lots of exciting news to share with everyone.
Last month, we found out we had won Gold at the British Property Awards for Chipping Sodbury! The awards judge estate agents based on their customer service and are meant to highlight ‘the best estate agents across the UK’.
We were all thrilled in the office to win the award for our local area and many of you have probably seen the ribbon proudly displayed on our promotional material.
Our team celebrating after winning the award
We then found out that after winning gold in the local awards, we had gone on to win silver in the regional awards!
The regional award covers the entire Southern Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire area and was out of more than 400 offices. We were so happy to win the local award, but to then go on and win the regional awards was more than we could ever dream of. To say we were stunned is an understatement. We also have a lovely new ribbon to go with our gold one.
We are still trying to decide how we can celebrate winning the regional award (our administrator has suggested the entire office go to Disneyland!). Until then, it's business as usual in the office with lots of properties to sell and chains to hold together.

It's Valentine's Day today and we have been very busy in the office over the last week with lots of completions. In honour of Valentine's Day, I thought I would share a story from one of our completions. Will and Suzy have bought through us before, so we were very happy to be able to help them find a property again.
Tina handed the keys over to the lovely couple last Monday. They entered the property and opened champagne and then Will proposed!
We are very happy to say that Suzy said yes!
We wish them both the very best for the future and lots of happy years together in their lovely cottage.
These are the beautiful flowers they sent us. We have received lots of flowers lately from very happy vendors and buyers, some of which were kind enough to leave some lovely comments on our Bundy and Bond Google reviews page. We were happy to have been able to help them all and we wish them all lots of happiness in their new properties.

We have been very busy here in the office again these last few weeks with lots of new properties coming on and lots of properties sold. We had a visit from the Easter bunny yesterday who left us all Easter eggs on our desks! Unfortunately, Adrian, our photographer couldn't eat his because of his nut allergy, but the rest of us in the office were happy to help him eat his egg.
As it is Easter, the office will be closed Friday and Monday for the bank holiday. We are open as normal on Saturday though.
We hope everyone has a lovely Easter and that you don't eat too much chocolate!

We hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year. 2017 has already brought a big change for Bundy and Bond. Over the Christmas period, we moved offices! We left Fromeforde House after a very happy 18 months there and we have moved to our very own premises in Chipping Sodbury.
We are still unpacking in the office and finding a home for everything (we know how our vendors feel now when they move home!), however the office is open should you wish to come in and say hello.
Our new address is Unit 2, Rounceval Mews, Rounceval Street, Chipping Sodbury, BS37 6AS. We are just off the high street just before the top of the hill as you go up it, down a small lane. Our telephone number 01454 540 200 is still exactly the same.
Adrian, our professional photographer will be taking some much better photos very soon so we can add them to our website. Our little office was once a barn, but it has been completely renovated. We are the first company to be here and it may take a little while for people to know where we are, but we hope to be here for many years to come.
