It was an early Christmas present for the team last Friday evening when we attended The United Kingdom Property Awards 2021 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, which was sponsored by P&A Wood – Rolls Royce Motor Cars.
Being the second year we have entered, we were very honoured to have scooped up nine awards in total – almost double that of last year – to include Best Estate Agency Marketing United Kingdom and Best Estate Agency Single Office United Kingdom. This brings our total number to over fourteen.
Widely known as one of the industry’s largest and most prestigious award ceremonies where only the highest quality of products and companies are allowed to enter, the winners were announced at a glitzy ceremony before everybody enjoyed a delicious three course meal followed by a lot of dancing.
Prizes comprised of two levels – ‘Award Winners’ which requires a minimum score from the judges of 60%, and ‘Five Star’ which requires a minimum score of 75%. Only ONE company is awarded the ‘Five Star’ award for each category, so we are thrilled to announce that it was given to Fine & Country Rutland, Stamford & South Lincs for:
- Estate Agency Marketing UK
- Estate Agency Marketing East Midlands
- Estate Agency Single Office UK
- Estate Agency Single Office South Lincolnshire
- Estate Agency Single Office Rutland
This means that we have been automatically entered into the shortlists for the same categories in the international regional heats, where we will be competing against other industry professionals across Africa, Arabia, Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the UK. The top winners in each region will then automatically be entered into the overall International Awards, culminating in another glittering awards ceremony. This event also crowns the overall ‘World’s Best Architecture, Property and Interior Design Awards’ – so we will keep you posted on how we do next year.
We also won four ‘Award Winners’ for:
- Estate Agency Website UK
- Development Marketing East Midlands
- Architecture Single Residence East Of England
- Residential Interior Private Residence Eaast Of England
The whole team are truly honoured to have won these national awards. They are in their 28th year and the winners represent the highest levels of achievement in real estate, development, architecture, interior design and marketing in both the residential and commercial sectors. This year, they were judged by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts, focusing on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability, with the expert judging panel being chaired by Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Waverley who are members of the House of Lords. Our achievement highlights not only how much we value customer service for our clients, but also our commitment to adopting a lifestyle marketing approach for the promotion of our homes.
Jan and Ildi are very much looking forward to representing the UK at the next stage of the awards process, so stay tuned!
