officebroker.com Business Centre of the Month: August 2011
Lester House Business Centre, Bury.
One of three business centres in the North West operated by the Lester House group, this is a contemporary centre offering five-star service, housed within a local landmark in the bustling centre of Bury. Located opposite a public square, Lester House Business Centre has become hugely popular with local businesses and has now reached full occupancy just six months after opening.
This swift success is a direct result of the excellent package on offer – which combines professional, newly refurbished workspace and top of the range facilities with an accessible location, a thriving business community and a flexible approach to clients’ needs.
But the real gem in the crown of Lester House is the staff. Run by a small but efficient team of two, consisting of Gaynor Stanley (Business Centre Manager) and Elana Solomon, the centre has been transformed into a thriving community for clients, where nothing is too much trouble and new businesses are lining up to take new space as it becomes available.
Following a rapid rate of rentals that filled the first phase of the business centre, phase two is now underway and is set for completion in December 2011. Three more clients have already made arrangements to relocate to Lester House when the additional space is ready.

This comes as no surprise to Alastair Maloney, who handles office space enquiries at officebroker.com for Bury and the North West. Despite only working with Lester House since March, he soon recognised the high standards of both the team and the centre environment and put Lester House forward for officebroker.com’s monthly Award, saying it would be a “perfect Business Centre of the Month candidate”.
“They are a great centre to work with and I always get great feedback from clients for them,” he said. “They have only been open a few months but already we have done a lot of business with them. Gaynor and Elana are fantastic – they’re very efficient and really make things happen.”
Within its short lifespan to date, the centre has already clocked up impressive five-star feedback from clients, which has been published via officebroker.com’s online review facility.
Oliver Lipson from Nationwide Claims Bureau says that “everything has run like clockwork” since moving in, adding that he would “highly recommend Gaynor and her team as an asset to any business.”
Commenting on the service, he said: “I have personally recommended the offices to four other local companies that I know are looking in the near future for alternative offices, (which) just goes to show how good service can go such a long way and is such an integral part of any sized business, even in this economy.

“Gaynor and the team are an asset to the business. It really is 5-star service!”
Richard Bodycoat from Sense Investments continued the high level of praise, saying that he and his team are “extremely grateful” for the professionalism and customer focus of Gaynor and Elana.
“Most of all they have consistently made us feel our custom is valued and that nothing is too much trouble,” he added. “We simply cannot praise them highly enough. This has been by far our most positive experience of dealing with a business centre and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lester House.”
Commenting on becoming officebroker.com’s Business Centre of the Month winner in August 2011, Centre Manager Gaynor Stanley said: “We are very proud to have been awarded Business Centre of the Month and it is a great compliment to see that all our hard work and commitment has been recognised by this award.
“Lester House has only been opened for six months and already our first phase is full, comprising of start-ups and established companies. We have another three companies ready to join us on our second phase which will be completed in December.
“Lester House is a professional business environment for all our clients – but with a very friendly and approachable atmosphere. Our main focus is on customer service so we are delighted with the testimonials that have recently been provided as they confirm that our efforts are appreciated.”
