Sheffield Residential awarded at The Lettings Agency of the Year Awards 2012
Sheffield Residential was awarded as Small Lettings Agency of the Year 2012 (North â€“ Silver Award) at The Lettings Agency of the Year Awards 2012 in association with The Sunday Times and The Times.
On Friday 25th May 2012, over 450 leading lettings agents from throughout the UK attended a glittering ceremony at The Lancaster London Hotel opposite Hyde Park where the winners of only dedicated awards for the lettings agency industry were revealed. The winners received their awards from former Olympic Champion, Sir Matthew Pinsent who wowed the audience with some incredible stories of his achievements.
The awards ceremony was the culminating event of a rigorous and thorough judging process carried out over a four-month period by a panel of industry experts who assessed initial entry submissions before conducting an extensive review of the entrants, which included hundreds of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises. The whole of the judging process was overseen by The Property Ombudsman; Christopher Hamer.
Now in its third year as a dedicated competition, these awards have become widely recognised as the most sought-after and difficult to win. With more entrants than ever before, over 5,000 offices were represented this year, but only the very best of the best were crowned as winners.
Sheffield Residential, winners of the Small Lettings Agency of the Year 2012 (North â€“ Silver Award) were delighted to receive the award.Â Maz Iqbal commented â€œWe have entered the Awards for 3 years now. When we were a Single Office we won the Bronze Award in 2010 and then jumped to Gold in 2011. This year we entered a new category of â€œSmall Lettings Agencyâ€ as we opened a second branch and went straight into getting the Silver Award. We are the only Sheffield agent to ever receive the Awards from The Times & Sunday Times which places us in a very unique position.â€
Peter Knight, Chairman of the event organisers Estate Agency Events commented; â€œLandlords and tenants can be confident that the agents displaying this awards medal represent the very best of the best. Whilst there has been much talk of the need to establish minimum standards for lettings agents, I am delighted that these awards can shine a light on those firms that are exceeding standards at every level within an increasingly competitive industry.â€
