Estate agent Reeds Rains struck gold at the latest Estate Agency of the Year Awards.
Reeds Rains was awarded Gold in Financial Services at The Estate Agency of the Year Awards 2013 in association with The Sunday Times and The Times and sponsored by Zoopla Property Group.
Financial Services Director John Hargreaves said: “To be recognised above every other financial services department in the industry is testament to the hard work and commitment of the team on a daily basis.
“We are naturally thrilled to receive this honour, which belongs to the entire Financial Services department. They all take so much pride in what they do.”
He added: “A top notch service which sets out to make everything as simple and smooth as possible is the secret behind the success of Reeds Rains Financial Services, which has beaten hundreds of other estate agents to a coveted award. “
Now in its eleventh year, the awards are widely recognised as the most prestigious 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.
The judges commented: “Reeds Rains have a deliberate policy of not wanting to ‘reinvent the wheel’ of financial products and services in what have been difficult times so they have countered this by ensuring that what they do offer is innovative and meets market demands to attract new clients and support the estate agency side of the business.
“Never content to tread water, the team actively seek to offer a top notch service and are all able to guide customers through the myriad of financial products, processes and checks.”
