Estate agency Connells in Kettering is celebrating after the company picked up prizes across a wide range of services at this year’s Estate Agency of the Year Awards held in association with the Sunday Times.
Connells scooped awards in categories including Best UK Large Agency, Best New Homes, Best Marketing, Best Training and Development and, for the fourth year in a row, took the Gold Award for Best Financial Services.
The awards, which are based on a written submission and telephone interview with the judges, are the most prestigious in the estate agency calendar.
In their report the judges said: “Connells strives to not only maintain but to build on high standards... buyers and vendors can be confident that they are receiving an exemplary and well thought-out service.”
In the New Homes category, the judges said ‘all employees in the department have profound knowledge and experience at grass roots level, backed by huge national resource’.
Connells’ award for Best Marketing was based on its ‘Six Week Challenge’ with an Olympic theme which was described as ‘attractive and engaging’.
In Financial Services where Connells took the top award for the fourth year in a row, the judges said: “Connells sets a sterling professional example. We are thrilled to award them the gold in this category once again.”
Connells chief executive Stuart Flavell said: “I am delighted that yet again, Connells has had great success at these awards. To be recognised across such a wide range of services reflects the company’s consistent high standards across the board.
