Simpsons Estate Agency Win National, Excellence Award
Earlier this month, the directors from Simpsons Estate Agency in Abingdon attended this year’s Estate Agency Masters conference and awards, an industry event supported by the UK’s largest property website Rightmove. Organised by The Property Academy and held at the O2 in London, the event was attended by 1,000 estate agency owners and senior management who heard from world class estate agency speakers, all leaders in their area of expertise.
The EA Masters is the biggest and most highly regarded event of its type within estate agency. In 2017 the founder of the event, Peter Knight of the Property Academy launched the Best Estate Agent Guide, a concept similar to the Michelin Guide with an aim to shine a light on the best estate agents in the country.
The Gala Dinner host was Sky TV's Gabby Logan who announced the country's top performers. By analysing data provided by Rightmove, including average sale time, success rate, market share in addition to the quality of marketing and an extremely thorough and rigorous mystery shopping exercise, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were given for each region throughout the UK. Simpsons were thrilled to scoop the Gold award for both sales and lettings in Oxfordshire.
Of the 15,000 companies assessed, less than 1% received Gold in both sales and lettings. Those who did were reassessed in order to establish the 'BEST OF THE BEST', the evenings pinnacle award, which Simpsons also won. This is a phenomenal achievement for an estate agency in just their second year.
Stewart Simpson, founder of Simpsons Estate Agency said " We are thrilled to receive this award, it really is a superb achievement for the dedicated team at Simpsons. As a relatively new company, we have to work doubly hard to earn the support of the community, and I would like to congratulate everyone on a really splendid year. We believe it is possible to differentiate ourselves by achieving really excellent results, while behaving in an ethical and courteous way. This award is the best form of encouragement because it is the result of independent professional analysis of every UK Estate Agency".
