Members of the Relocation Agent Network are celebrating after a successful annual awards event in London, combined with keynote conference sessions from across and outside the industry.
The Agent of the Year accolade was won by Pygott & Crone from the East Midlands who were judged to be the agent who has most excelled in leading the field of UK estate agency and Network standards.
The Employee of the Year award was given to Brock Taylor’s Liam Stanbridge and Ferndown Estates was crowned Newcomer of the Year.
Relocation Agent Network’s 16 Best Agent Regional Awards went to; Richard James (Central); Barbers (Cheshire & North Wales); Thomas Morris (East Anglia & Essex); Gibbs Gillespie (Greater London); Pygott & Crone (East Midlands); Hunters (West Midlands); J W Wood (North East); Petty (North West); Maloco (Scotland); Homes (Thames Valley); White & Guard (South); Miles & Barr (South East); Webbers (South West); Clubleys (Yorkshire); Heritage (West); and Dawsons (South Wales).
The nine Customer Relocation Awards went to Pygott & Crone from the East Midlands (Category A); Webbers from the South West (Category B); Thomas Morris from East Anglia & Essex (Category C); Gibbs Gillespie from Greater London (Category D); Richard James from Central (Category E); Victorstone from Greater London (Category F); Graham Butt from the South East (Category G); Sparks Ellison from the South (Category H); and Horizon from East Anglia (Category I).
This year’s event saw a new format with the introduction of ‘speed sharing’ round-tables and workshops, each one hosted by an expert in their field. From lettings and compliance, to effective phone calls and employee engagement, the new format gave delegates the opportunity to choose the topics that they wanted to learn more about.
The event culminated in the black tie awards dinner hosted by comedian and TV presenter, Sue Perkins, who gave awards to the night’s winning estate agents.
Relocation Agent Network also took the opportunity to raise more than £2,000 for the estate agency charity, Agents Giving.
