Hamptons International took home Gold for Best Large Agency for the third consecutive year at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards in association with the Sunday Times and The Times, held at The Lancaster London Hotel on Friday 5 December.
The event is recognised as one of the most prestigious events in the industry calendar and attracted stiff competition from agents across the country. It was once again supported by The Sunday Times and The Times, with the winners presented with their awards, by Television Presenter, Penny Smith.
Awarding Hamptons International with Gold for Best Large Agency for the third year in a row, the judges commented: “Hamptons is a very strong business and the judging panel was united in its decision to award the gold to this agency for the third year in a row. The directors and the team leverage their network and database for the benefit of the business and this approach has seen Hamptons expand its market share, international company with a global network of over 7,000 affiliated offices. The Hamptons bible communicates the blueprint for the expected levels of service, and this is reinforced by the Hamptons Academy which provided bespoke trainee coaching for people who want to start their career in property. As a recruitment tool, this has proved invaluable as an incentive with 27 new people joining. They seek to innovate and to do this have set up the Innovation Working Group of 12 individuals who are known for free thinking and who are tasked with coming up with new ideas for differentiation.”
Hamptons International’s employees also received the highest of accolades. Alex Rusling from Hamptons International’s City Branch won Best Negotiator while Daniel O Brien from the Islington branch was awarded Best Valuer for the second consecutive year.
Marc Goldberg, Head of Sales at Hamptons International, commented: “We were thrilled to have been recognised for the third consecutive year as the UK’s Best Large Agency at the prestigious Estate Agency of the Year Awards in association with The Sunday Times and The Times.
Over the course of the year, we have once again been working hard to grow our business share, invest in our staff and continue to provide our clients with outstanding customer service beyond their expectations. To be acknowledged for these efforts by a group of industry experts is extremely rewarding and is testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees.
We are extremely proud of our star performers Alex Rusling, Best Negotiator and Dan O Brien who won Best Valuer for a second year in a row. To win these categories from a competition pool of more than 5,000 estate agency offices from around the country and is an enormous achievement and extremely well deserved.”
