Glittering event honours franchise success stories

Franchise giant Belvoir has once again held a lavish annual conference and awards event.

Sponsored by iamproperty, Let Alliance and PayProp, the event in a Nottingham hotel saw Natalie Boardman, owner of Belvoir Tunbridge Wells, win the prestigious Gold Award for Belvoir Franchise of the Year 2023.

“Natalie is a very deserving winner of our top award” says Belvoir chief executive Dorian Gonsalves. 


“Our panel of judges wanted the top award to go to a business that was owned by someone who truly epitomises and embraces every aspect of the Belvoir brand. This award is not dependent on how big the business is, but does embrace key factors within our business model, including compliance, acquisitions, involvement with helping other franchisees in the network, as well as the quality of marketing. 

“Natalie joined Belvoir six years ago and is very popular amongst her peers. Despite being very busy she is always extremely generous with the time she gives to help Central Office, as well as other franchisees and people in her local community. Natalie completed on a large acquisition in 2022, which added about 270 properties to her portfolio, and I am delighted that she has received this award. I wish Natalie every success for the future, as her business continues to grow.”

On winning the title Boardman herself says: “We are a small team of just four people, and everyone was over the moon to have won. It’s not something that we were expecting, but we could not be happier. We will definitely be going out as a team to celebrate, as this is real testimony to the dedication, commitment and achievements of everybody at Belvoir Tunbridge Wells.”

A total of 30 awards were presented, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, which went to Andy Campbell of Belvoir Moray.  Campbell was Belvoir’s very first franchisee, and his business is still going strong after 27 years. 

Conor Warburton of Belvoir Leamington Spa was awarded the Belvoir Rising Star Award, and new franchisee Tom Cartwright of Belvoir Exmouth won the Belvoir Newcomer of the Year Award.
