Oakwood was named 2014 Branch of the Year at Manning Stainton’s recent annual Pride Awards dinner.

Over 160 colleagues attended the event at the Hilton Hotel in Leeds to recognise outstanding achievements at the area’s leading estate agency, culminating in the announcement of the most prestigious award of the night.

In revealing the winner sales director Mark Manning said: “When we recognise our Branch of the Year we not only acknowledge an outstanding performance in terms of numbers, but more so the branch who has shown the desire to challenge the status quo in order to be that change and raise the bar once more.

“We are in the business of helping people move and in a year where competition has been fiercer than ever the entire Oakwood team has raised its game to a new level. They have sustained a market share of sold properties in their core market of 40 per cent, an incredible achievement in this climate, through being organised, hardworking and disciplined in everything they do. To cap an extraordinary year, Oakwood was also the most successful single office across the entire Leeds estate agency market.”

In addition to being named Branch of the Year Oakwood also picked up four individual awards handed out during the evening. Recipients included Laura Walker, Shelley Bradley, Christine Rodgers and Kevin Lawson, while Emma Griffiths was recognised for 10 years’ service. Helen Taylor, manager at Oakwood said: “I am immensely proud of my amazing team. Their hard work not only resulted in outstanding sales figures but has also ensured great feedback from clients regarding the high level of customer service we consistently provide. It’s great to see the team recognised.”
